Want to lose 21 pounds in 21 days? This is the promise of the Martha’s Vineyard Diet Detox, a short-term detox weight loss plan from Roni DeLuz, a registered nurse and naturopathic doctor (DeLuz is not an official medical doctor),that has been designed to eliminate one pound per day. As you might imagine, this plan is very intense and strict. It involves drinking lots of fluids, taking supplements with laxative effects and even doing enemas in its effort to help dieters clear their body of harmful toxins and lose weight.

Generally speaking, this plan concentrates on three principles:

• Rest – which is achieved through not needing to chew food or exercise
• Reduce – weight loss that results from a liquid-based diet
Rebuild – this is what will happen to a detoxer’s cells after 21 days of following the plan, according to DeLuz

This is an all liquid diet. A typical day consists of a detoxer drinking 40 – 48 ounces (oz) of water, 23 – 24 oz of herbal tea, 32 oz of berry juice or vegetable juice or a green drink made from vegetables, and 16 oz of a vegetable-based soup. In total, about this adds up to about 1,000 calories per day. What is not allowed is anything that must be chewed, meat, processed food, cow’s milk, or alcohol. Also, with the exception of the weekly enema, coffee is not allowed.

For those who intend to follow the program in its entirety, you will need to buy DeLuz’s “Detox Kit” which is a “21 Day and 9 day Maintenance Package”, and at the time this review was written costs $199.00. DeLuz also recommends purchasing her book. The Detox Kit does not ship outside of the U.S.

Pros

You are likely to lose water weight on this plan. At the time this review was written there was an official site for the Martha’s Vineyard Diet Detox.

Cons

It is highly unlikely that a person will lose a pound a day on this diet. Weight loss is extremely possible, but the weight that will be lost will be mostly water weight and muscle mass, as there is not enough protein provided with this plan (only 20 grams per day). This means that once you go back to eating solids, you will gain back what was lost. In addition, headaches and fatigue are likely to be experienced during this detox plan. Also, this form of extreme dieting can be very dangerous for certain individuals.

If you want a cheaper and safer way to achieve weight loss and good health, according to nutritionists, eat a variety of fresh vegetables and fruits, whole grains, lean meats and low-fat dairy and avoid salt, refined sugar, processed foods and excessive alcohol. Furthermore, the body naturally detoxifies itself. That’s why the human body has a liver and kidneys.

It is strongly recommended that you talk to your healthcare provider before you take part in this or any other detox plan and before you make any drastic changes to your regular diet.
