As Beyonce launches a new nutrition program with her trainer, designed to encourage long-term healthy eating, we run through 5 detox diet plans that could help kick-start a lifestyle change.
Queen Bey has confirmed her love of plant-based eating by launching a new healthy meal plan service called 22 Days Nutrition with her trainer, Marco Borges. The home delivery program offers organic, vegan meals and aims to encourage users to develop long-term healthy eating habits. It’s based on the idea that it takes 21 days to form a habit so, by day 22, you’re already on the road to eating the right things by choice.
‘I am so grateful that I took the challenge and credit Marco with leading by example. He is the most energetic person I know and it’s all because of his decision to live a healthy lifestyle,’ Beyonce said in a statement. ‘He came up with a great program to get people motivated to make better nutritional choices.’
Sadly, we Brits can’t sample Beyonce’s program, as it’s only available in the US, so here are 5 options for anyone who fancies trying their own detox diet plan to help kick-start healthier eating habits.
The Detox Kitchen
The Detox Kitchen offers a Vegan Package, developed by chefs and nutritionists to cleanse the body and leave users feeling revitalised. Available for a minimum of 5 days, it delivers 1,200 calories per day with a selection of whole grains, legumes, vegetables, fruits, nuts and seeds.
£29.99 per day
The Pure Package
The Pure Package offers a tailored Detox & Cleanse program, for a minimum of 21 days. During this time, users are supervised by a trained therapist, who re-introduces ingredients into their diet each week. The detox diet plan aims to flush out toxins and improve energy levels. A sample menu includes coconut-infused wild rice and mango for breakfast, basil pesto pasta served with roasted Mediterranean vegetables for lunch and a Mexican bean pot for supper with additional snacks throughout the day.
The Harmony Cleanse from Plenish is aimed at anyone who needs a diet and lifestyle overhaul. It’s a gentle detox plan, perfect for those who haven’t tried one before. You’ll receive 6 500ml juices per day of the cleanse, including a Cashew Milk blend and a Spicy Lemonade.
HelloFresh delivers fresh ingredients and nutritious chef-created step-by-step recipes right to your door. Although it isn’t technically a detox plan, the Veggie Box is ideal for anyone wanting to cut out meat and tap into Beyonce’s plant-based diet. It provides 3 different vegetarian recipes and the exact ingredients you’ll need to make them. Sign up with your partner or housemate, as you’ll receive enough for 2 people.
The Ritual Cleanse from Radiance Cleanse combines juices with yoga moves, designed to support you through a detox. Offering 5 juices and 2 yoga sequences per day, this program lasts for either 3 or 5 days and aims to cleanse both the body and mind.
