The 7-day detox plan
What is the first thing that comes to your mind when you hear the word detox? Surely some nasty soups and green drinks that you have to drink with a pinch on your nose. Yes, our grandmothers used to tell us that the healthiest things aren't always delicious. But detox (or body cleansing) doesn't have to be a torture.
What if we tell you that cleansing the body is a piece of cake if you agree to follow a few tips. Would you dare to try it? Keep reading to find out more.
You’ve probably heard of the word detox, by now. We’re sure you roughly know what it is, but you may not be 100% sure how it works.
You're probably wondering how toxins end up in your body in the first place? Well actually everything that surrounds us and everything we consume contributes to how our body functions. From unhealthy food, cosmetics and polluted air. Since our body is burdened with these toxins, we also need to cleanse it every so often.
We suggest that you take 7 days at least twice a year and do a good body detox. How? Keep reading to find out more!
Don’t get scared right away, detox isn’t anything spooky, but a little renunciation is still needed. That’s why it’s best to, mentally prepare yourself, before you embark on all of this. We advise you to prepare mentally for every challenge that may await you. So, keep reading to prepare for the challenge.
What is and what isn't allowed?
So, detox is cleansing the body of unhealthy foods. Which means you’ll have to say goodbye to coffee, alcohol, candy and junk food for a week. Okay, the first step may seem impossible to you ... so who's capable of giving it all up for the whole week ... but let's calm you down right now. There are alternatives for everything, and you never know ... you might like them and continue with them even after the detox. Read more here TummyTox morning coffee >>
You should avoid:
- Alcohol and cigarettes
- Milk and dairy products (it would be best to use the herbal alternatives instead - our favourite - almond milk)
- Carbs (bread, cookies, cakes, pasta, rice, barley, oats)
- Dried fruit
You should eat:
- Fruits and vegetables
- Fish, lean red meat, chicken (without skin)
- Beans, chickpeas, lentils
- Nuts, seeds (without salt and must not be fried)
- Tea (green, white or black without caffeine)
Start your day off right
Kick-start your morning! The best way to start the day is to drink a glass of warm water or even better a cup of hot tea as soon as you get up. Our Daily Kick >> is a great way to give your metabolism a boost and elevate your body's energy in the morning. In addition, it will encourage the cleansing of your body throughout the day and give you a new dose of energy.
Feel free to use it as a substitute for coffee because it contains green tea (which we highly recommend for detox!) And its other ingredients (nettle, fennel, dandelion and black cumin) will help you get rid of bloating and start melting fat. .
Drink more water
You should drink at least 2 litres of water a day. Water helps excrete toxins from the body and also expels sodium which causes bloating. We sometimes eat when we're just thirsty, so make sure you hydrate before and between meals..
Our Draining Drink can be of great help here. It is a drainage drink that stimulates the lymph to excrete excess water and toxins, and also cleanses the liver. It comes in raspberry flavour and tastes great. You dissolve it in 1 litre of water and drink it in the morning. With our drink, you are already halfway through the daily dose of 2 litres!

Add probiotics to your daily diet
Our health begins with healthy digestion. Our digestive cells protect our body from toxins and chemicals, and without a healthy digestive system, our body cannot get the necessary nutrients. It contains millions of bacteria, but if there is no balance between "good" and "bad" bacteria, there are serious health problems, but also the accumulation of fat and mood swings..
Happy Enzymes will ensure absorption of beneficial nutrients only and improve your digestion.
Enjoy an evening massage
Massaging the skin with circular movements on a daily basis stimulates circulation and improves skin detoxification. You can achieve this with our massager, which you get for free with the purchase of the Draining Drink package. Add the Draining Drink to your morning routine, and take 5 minutes during the shower in the evening to get a good massage with our TummyTox massager.
Have complete regeneration during the night
Good and quality sleep every night (read 8 hours of sleep!) is a key to the body's health and a natural detoxification system. Good sleep ensures your brain reorganizes, and it also cleanses the body of toxins that have accumulated during the day..
With our Sleep Tight tea, you will achieve maximum regeneration of the body at night. Its super ingredients (orange peel, peppermint, lemongrass, lemon balm and hops) will help your body to rest, cleanse and regenerate during the night and prepare for a new day!
Then? What do you think? It's not hard, is it :) It only takes 7 days and your body will be grateful. You will immediately see the changes, feel better and be full of energy!
