What You Should Know
The Three-Day Fruit Flush Detox Diet was created by Jay Robb who is a clinical nutritionist with more than thirty years of experience in the field. His personal company began a line of protein powders and makes other products including a line of best-selling books. Robb also has a variety of diet plans that are marketed on his website and through online retailers and stores across the country.
The Three-Day Fruit Flush Detox Diet claims to help dieters lose up to nine pounds in just three days. According to the website, this is the perfect diet to kick start a new long term program, get ready for a special event, or break a food addiction. The diet can be downloaded as an e-book or a hard copy of the book can be ordered off the website. The 48-page e-book can be ordered for as little as $5 at the time of this review. The page on Robb’s website that is dedicated to this diet program does include customer testimonials. However, we were unable to find clinical evidence cited that supports the idea that detoxifying the body through a fruit flush will help one lose weight.
List of Ingredients
The Three-Day Fruit Flush Detox Diet consists primarily of consuming fruit, vegetables, and protein to flush out the internal system. The first day, dieters are instructed to drink a series of protein shakes and finish off the day with a large salad. The next two days consist of a piece of fruit every two hours followed by a large salad in the evening. The idea behind this diet is that toxins are flushed out of the body along with sodium which helps to reduce water retention.
While there is an argument to be made about the healthy benefits of occasionally “flushing” out the internal system but there is little evidence to support the fact that detox programs are an effective means of long term weight loss. Dieters who use one of these programs over the short term will undoubtedly see a drop in pounds simply from the calorie reduction that these programs are usually characterized by. However, over the long run, there is not data to support the effectiveness of these programs in weight loss.
Robb’s website does offer a 30-day money back guarantee on all products purchased through the website with the exception of e-books. Customer service is available during normal business hours to assist customers with downloading e-books and answer questions.
