So you ate and drank your way through the weekend and now you feel bloated and lethargic. Nothing a simple 24-hour fast can't fix. Going foodless (or almost foodless) for a day is the ultimate form of detox.

With this monday detox diet, in a short 24-hour fast, the body burns off stored fat, repairs damaged tissues and cells, and cleanses itself of toxins.

Fasting increases the production of the hormones responsible for lipolysis, which is the process of mobilizing fat, so it's a great way to jump-start your system.

The monday detox diet you need to try

Make sure to have healthy food (lean meats, veggies, etc.) ready to go when you ‘break’ the fast Monday night.

10 p.m. Sunday:

10 a.m. Monday:

  • Drink 1 liter of water plus 1 serving of a superfood powder.
  • Drink 250 milliliters of green tea
  • Take 5 grams BCAA (branched chain amino acids) powder (or 5 capsules)

Note: The tea, greens, and BCAAs aren't essential but can help get you through it—and drinking water helps to mitigate the feelings of hunger.

3 p.m. Monday:

  • Repeat water, green tea, and BCAA morning routine

10 p.m. Monday:

  • Eat a small snack before bed
  • Drink 500 milliliters of water

Tuesday:

  • Eat normally

Fasting is a great way to detox your body, you'll see the difference if done regularly, but please start slow if you haven't done it before or ask your doctor if you have any medical condition that wouldn't let you do this.
