Dr. Oz 3 Day Detox Cleanse Wrap Up

May 6, 2013


Last week I did the Dr. Oz 3 Day Detox Cleanse and survived.


What’s even more surprising is that everyone else in my house survived.

Double Gasp!

Yes, I tend to get a bit cranky when I don’t have things like FOOD on a regular basis. All jokes aside, the detox went well and I want to share my thoughts and experience with you.

Here’s what I did …

Simple, right? Yes and no. It was very simple to prep for – I love the shopping list – but anytime you change and restrict your eating it’s challenging. If you’re thinking about doing this or any cleanse make sure you pick your days wisely. Don’t do it when it’s someone’s birthday or you’re going to a party – avoid all temptations! It was great that I did it during the week because I tend to splurge more on the weekends.

Also, think ahead if you have to go out so you can make your drink and take it with you. You don’t want to be on the go without it. Also, listen to your body if you’re planning on running or exercising because you won’t have the same fuel in your body that you’re used to. On the first day I played a tennis match in the evening. We won (Yay!) but it could’ve been a different story if I had to go three sets. Ahem.

I loved the Morning Detox Tea and I’m incorporating this into my regular routine. I didn’t care for the Stevia, but the green tea and lemon is a winner to start my day.

The Breakfast Drink was my favorite of the three. I’m also keeping this in my food mix – not as breakfast daily – but as a healthy meal or snack. Yum!

The Lunch Drink was my least favorite of the three. OK, I didn’t like it – at all. I drank the entire drink the first day. I drank half of it the second day. On day three I didn’t add in the celery, I just ate it while I was making the drink, and I added some extra pineapple to help with the taste. It was better, but you can’t be sure I won’t be making this one again.

For an afternoon snack you have the choice to make your favorite of the three drinks. Needless to say I chose the Breakfast Drink for all three days.

The Dinner drink was fine, but it didn’t excite me to keep it in my regular rotation. I don’t know how I managed not to get a picture of it – probably because it was at night and I was busy with the kids.  Oh, and be careful when adding the cayenne pepper to this drink because it packs a big kick!

The Detox Ultra Bath was AWESOME. Let’s be real, it was simply a bath but I can’t remember the last time I relaxed in the tub. Aww, pure BLISS! It reminded me how much I like baths and I’ll definitely make sure to take one at least once a week. Another perk, it made me really scrub my tub. Not that it was dirty or anything. Ahem.

Overall the drinks kept me feeling full. They’re very thick so I wasn’t very hungry often except for a little bit at night. By the third night I was ready to eat food on a plate again, but surprisingly the three days flew by fast. I did have that “Detox Headache” from time to time and didn’t think it would be wise for me to make any life-changing decisions during that time.

When I think of a detox or cleanse I normally assume that I would spend a lot of time in the bathroom but that wasn’t the case. Things moved normally. Ahem. I did find that I had to pee a little bit more because I was drinking lots of water with fresh lemon in it through out the three days.

I lost seven pounds and two inches from my waist. Wow! I realize that a few of those pounds probably came right back as soon as I started cooking my first meal, but it was a nice perk of doing the cleanse.

Consuming such healthy foods was wonderful for my body and my mind. I’m excited again to eat more natural whole foods and to limit my splurges. I feel GREAT and this was just the jump start I needed to get back in the right frame of mind with food.

    Super impressive! I don’t think I would have stuck with it. But you improvised and made it through.


  2. Renee Says:

    Nice! I’ll be doing a detox when I’m back from Disney. My body needs it!


  3. Krystal Grant Says:

    yay! Great job!!!


  4. E.Payne Says:

    I’m right there with you. Keep up the good work. You didn’t mention the probiotic though. That’s probably had a lot to do with you system not freaking out during the cleanse…ahem.


  5. Kim Says:

    Great post – and good for you! I think I may give this a shot – nice way to kick start some weight loss for the summer. Plus my husband and I both have talked about trying to eat more healthy choices.

    Thank you!


  6. kendra Says:

    i might have to try this, though i don’t eat so many of the items on the grocery list! sigh.


  7. Maria Smith Says:

    That is great! Did you hear though that Dr. Oz is now on a campaign to let people know he hasn’t endorsed any detox. Apparently companies have been using his name like crazy.


    • Wifey Says:

      I bet he has people do things like that all the time. This one came from him, I watched the videos of him explaining it on his show. :)


  8. Melissa D. Says:

    I did the same detox right after Easter to flush out all the grub I consumed that day. I agree with you on all the drinks. Breakfast was great and I will put that in my normal smoothie rotation. I tried to run on it and failed. Opted for some stretching. I did it over a weekend which worked out best for me. The best thing from it was it seem to level set my sugar levels back to a proper balance. Fruit tastes fruitier, veggies tasted like the actual veggie. Afterwards I didn’t want to go back into bad eating so I eased into a clean eating program. I gave myself one cheat day and in the month of April I went down 13 lbs. Still losing, with a lot to go. I am glad it’s helping my running performance and clothes are fitting better.


  9. cambogiatrimblog.net Says:

    Normally I don’t read article on blogs, however I would like to say that this write-up very pressured me to take a look at and do so! Your writing style has been surprised me. Thank you, quite nice post.


  10. Amy Says:

    Is it possible to make the shakes ahead and refridgerate them for the day? I’m a nurse and work 12 hour shifts and a blender doesn’t fit in my locker too well :)


    • Wifey Says:

      I would try it. I made one of them and took it to my tennis match. I have Blender Bottle that was a little ball in it designed to blend up drinks directly in the cup. That might work to freshen it up if it settles/seperates during the day. :)


  11. Nanci Says:

    I’m on day one, but I’m wondering about how many ounces it comes out to after mixing a drink. Seems like I made a lot


  12. Kim Says:

    One question – and I realize the stupidity of it – but can you have diet soda during the cleanse or are you restricted to just water and the items on the cleanse list?


  13. Carri Says:

  19. Christine cardella turner Says:

    Glad I read your blog! Im on day two and just ate some pretzel rods in order to save the lives of my children! These drinks are not nice! Agreed the breakfast one isnt bad. Even my mom fruit and veg eating husband liked it. I decuded not to go running while doing this as I, too, thought there would be more bathroom trips. I was confused by the lack but im glad you mentioned it too so I know its not just me:). The end od day 3 cant come soon enough!


  20. weightlossprogramreview.org Says:

    I visited multiple web sites except the audio feature for audio songs present at this site is really superb.


  21. Kelly Says:

    Thank you for your article! Your opinions are spot on for me! I also felt most of my hunger in the evening but that nice relaxing bath (I haven’t had in a long time) helped take my mind off it. I’m also doing the cleanse during the work week. I cut up the fruits and veggies last night to make breakfast, lunch and snack easy. I won’t be eating lunch with co-workers today. It’s a nice day for a walk – and a veggie drink! Thanks again! :)


  22. Eileen Says:

    Can you drink lots of water though out the day?


  23. Molly Says:

    I am a marathoner and mom of two also :) – and on Day Two of this very same cleanse. SO glad to find your blog! I feel like I have GAINED weight though. Can that be true? Dying to go on a run and am going tomorrow morning w a friend but worried I might not be able to make it. Though, after my snack today (I also prefer the breakfast one) I feel like I could run easily. Here’s hoping the energy will be there on my run tomorrow – and the extra inches will leave!


  24. Anna Says:

    Great blog. I’m thinking about doing this. I’m wondering if the fruits and veggies need to be organic.

  26. Alicia Says:

    Hi There :)
    Thanks for the review. I’m on day 2. I miss chewing food but I’m going to push through to the end.

    I feel like his recipes on the one-sheet print out are a little unclear.

    1Tbsp Lemon….juice, I assume? Cause how would you measure 1 Tbsp of a lemon…

    Then 1/2 Lime…juice? But here you could just throw 1/2 a lime in the blender…peeled, I suppose? I’ve had 2 of the lunch shakes so far and they arent great, but I’ve just been squeezing the juice of 1/2 a lime into it and not putting the actual lime in there.

    Last thing…The measurement for coconut water in the dinner smoothie is missing. 1 1/2 CUPS? I guess thats it. I can’t figure out what it might be otherwise.



  27. Myquiche Says:

    I am getting ready to do the cleanse tomorrow with my coworker. So Im excited to see if I can stick with it. Thank you for your wonderful and genuine testimony.

    It wraps around the side of the vacuum cleaner and never has gotten tangled or knotted which is important to me.
    Other than that, I am very happy with our purchase two years later.

    The Bissell 82H1 Cleanview Helix Bagless Upright can also be about 20 pounds
    that’s not fat or too light.

This article truly did turn the light on for me personally as far as this particular topic goes. Nevertheless there is just one position I am not too cozy with and while I try to reconcile that with the actual main idea of the issue, permit me observe exactly what the rest of your readers have to point out.Nicely done.
