About the 3 Day Guided Detox

The goal of the Hungry for Change detox is to kick-start your health and assist you in making a transition to an overall healthier way of eating and living. Think of it as a simple spring cleaning for your body.
This detox will help:
  • Reduce your cravings
  • Reset your taste buds
  • Start the process of cleaning up
  • Get you on the path to healthy living

The Hungry for Change detox offers an abundance of nutrient-rich whole foods and green juices, including delicious salads, soups, snacks, and desserts, so you definitely won’t go hungry. The carefully selected ingredients will flood your body with nutrients, help flush out toxins, and keep you well hydrated.

We turn to this detox regularly and recommend it to our friends and family for three reasons: It’s quick. It’s easy to follow. And it doesn’t require any hard-to-find ingredients or supplements.

Grocery List for the 3 Day Detox

  • 1 large ginger root

  • 1 head garlic

  • 2 buches celery

  • 1 large head kale

  • 2 tubs mixed sprouts (alfalfa, sunflower, or watercress)

What You Can Expect During And After The Detox

After the detox, you’ll likely come away with increased energy, improved mental clarity, glowing skin, weight loss, increased immunity, and a renewed passion for life.

We recommend doing this detox twice a year, about once every six months. If you’re feeling more adventurous or want to experience even better results, extend the detox to seven or ten days and add in some of the healthy lifestyle suggestions listed below. If you haven’t done a detox before and are unsure what to expect, you might want to start the program on a Friday and complete the detox over the weekend.

Some people may feel energized, others may want to rest; but either way, it’s about listening to your body. Some people may experience mild detox symptoms, which include headaches, tiredness, irritability, and mucus elimination. These are all normal symptoms and a sign that your body is beginning to cleanse.
