The Fast Track Detox Diet

The Fast Track Detox Diet


The Fast Track Detox Diet was created by nutritionist Ann Louise Gittleman, PhD, CNS. The plan provides an 11-day detox program including a 7-day preparation, 1-day fast, and 3-day maintenance period. Dr. Gittleman claims fasting can be a great weight-loss method when done properly. In her book, The Fast Track Detox Diet, she outlines how to prepare for the detox in order to prevent toxin overload.

The diet is broken down into three phases: The prequel, the one-day fast, and the sequel. During the prequel, detox-supportive foods are added in to prepare for the fast, where a “miracle juice” is consumed to balance blood sugar, boost metabolism, and replenish nutrients. During the one-day fast, dieters only consume water and a cranberry-cinnamon juice concoction every two hours. During the last phase, the sequel, immune-boosting foods are introduced to maintain weight loss with a strong focus on yogurt.

The diet plan addresses emotional issues and recommends journaling, breathing exercises, and visualization tools.
