12 Detoxing Cleanse Foods #LLTV


Best Detox Foods For Cleanse Diets

Live Lean Nation, I’ve been asked numerous times about detox and cleanse diets. So on today’s episode of Live Lean TV I’m sharing my thoughts on this and 12 of the best detox foods.

Alright, the word detox and cleanse gets thrown around like crazy in the health industry. I’m often asked, is it necessary? Should you do it? And how should you do it?

Most professionals suggest you do a detox before starting a new “diet”.

They Claim Detox Diets Help You…

– Eliminate cravings
– Increase energy
– Help digestion
– And clean up your liver.

Just so we’re clear, I’m not arguing with any of those claims.

Then they’ll send their clients a list of “detox” foods high in antioxidants and anti-inflammatory properties to help cleanse and detox the liver during the “cleanse” period.

Some of the best detox foods that meet those requirements include…

#1. Avocados
#2. Broccoli
#3. Bussel sprouts
#4. Cabbage
#5. Cauliflower
#6. Collard greens
#7. Dill
#8. Garlic
#9. Green tea
#10. Kale
#11. Lemon
#12. Onion

All Live Lean approved foods right?

So let me be clear and upfront

I’ve never done a “detox cleanse” before.


Because I’ve commited to a lifestyle of eating primarily whole foods containing one ingredient. And that’s what I’m teaching you. I’m teaching you that it’s a lifestyle way of eating. Not just a short-term detox.

Guys, when are we going to stop the rollercoaster of eating like crap, feeling like crap, then doing a cleanse, feeling better, but then getting bored with the food, and ultimately falling back into the eating like crap trap.

It’s NOT about detoxes.
It’s NOT about cleanses.
It’s NOT about going on diets.
It’s NOT about perfection.

It’s about progress.
It’s about a lifestyle.
It’s about a commiting to raising your life’s standards.
It’s about striving to be better everyday.
It’s about consistency.
It’s about focusing on eating one ingredient foods.

There’s no magic pill. There’s no magic diet.

Living Lean is simple but it’s not easy…

But if you have a strong enough “why”, an emotional connection to why you need to change your habits, then you’ll have that driving force behind making these lifestyle changes.

So I ask you…

Why do a short-term detox with these foods, when you can enjoy these foods and make them taste delicious every single week? Every single one of these 12 detox foods that I talked about are found in over 200 quick, healthy, easy, affordable, and delicious recipes in my Eat Clean Live Lean Cookbook.

And not only are these detox foods used in the cookbook…

The recipes in the cookbook show you ways to make these detox foods taste delicious.

So if you’re ready to commit to a new lifestyle.
A new life-long way of eating that you can pass on to your kids…

It’s a game changer for your body and your health.

  1. Doing any task with passion and lust, makes every task an enjoyable journey.
    A strong belief, coupled with positive thinking, is just one of the marks of a successful entrepreneur.
    What you need to do is set your goals and come up with an action plan.

  2. Greetings Brad. I recently subscribed to your channels and started watching
    your videos. I had previously pushed myself through detoxing days as, as
    you said a period between changing diets! My ordianary crapy diet to the
    more healthy diet from a nutritionist. The only thing i got was 2kgs less
    in 2 days (water mostly and maybe muscle) and feeling well for eating food
    the next days, so as to appreciate the low amounts of food intake comparing
    to the detoxing period. Just that.
    I have been from 98kgs to 67kgs in my whole life. I am now 34 years old
    and actually am at 92kgs and a 25% fat and geting married in two months
    from now. I must put myself together but i lost all my will during this
    whole year past by me trying to keep a job that actually didn’t fit. I
    finally got fired and was happy for the first few days like having much
    more time for myself but now, i’m feeling to crapy because i am recovering
    from a neck injury and i am not allowed to workout. I feel like a mess and
    i am trying to lose weight while being most of the time at home doing
    almosta nothing. Have lost all my interest for everything. Any advice?

  3. Yes I did a vegan detox. Just real foods and green juice.
    I did loose weight and opened my eyes into not eating so much
    protein(animal) it wasn’t a stupid lemon one. No pills or potions.
    Now I consider myself a Paegan, Paleo, Vegan, best of both nutritious
    eating. I definitely had a build up of toxins in my system from previous
    crap diets. Living lean every day is a lifestyle commitment we all need to
    strive towards, love the passion Brad

  4. Fired up. I love it. I have to watch my “passion” when it comes to this
    topic. I can get carried away. Everything you said is right. Forget the
    diets, the fads and everything else. Eat right, workout and enjoy life.
    Thanks for the vid.

  5. Yup, I did a handful of detoxes for awhile. I was coached through it by
    someone who, through the process taught me a lot about nutrition and the
    junk on food labels. I went pretty extreme (master cleanse for 21 days
    initially). I was totally naive to how I was starving myself and could
    only see that I was dropping the pounds and having a hell of a mental
    workout for sticking with it so long. It really “reset” my body… that’s
    for sure. BUT I would not advise it. In hindsight it was NOT good for my
    body’s well being. I learned a lot from it, and actually swore by it for
    awhile after. However, in hindsight, I can see how those cleanses (and
    others) are mainly a pseudo health claim and health industry money maker.

    Brad, you’re preaching the truth – (which I know believe) and I give an

  6. Excellent video and excellent content. The term ‘detox’ is the word du jour
    nowadays, that’s for sure. One thing to keep in mind is that we don’t need
    to improve upon nature, especially when claims are made that this is
    possible from a box or pill bottle. Our bodies are equipped with the most
    powerful detoxing mechanisms that we’ll ever need, it’s just up to us to
    properly fuel our body to allow our own internal detox machines (liver,
    skin, kidneys, lungs, lymphatic system and of course our blood to do all
    the detoxing we need. Brad, you are so correct, eating one ingredient
    foods, everyday is what we need to properly detox, nothing gimmicky like
    what you see sold out of a box. It is said that our body has it’s own
    internal pharmacy, with everything it needs to prevent, heal, and cure
    whatever comes our way, we just need to fuel it properly.

  7. I never tried a detox…. I just changed the way I ate. Your cook book is
    awesome though….lost a lot of weight because of your videos.

  8. Never tried a detox diet before, but i do have some yogi detox tea followed
    by an ice cold glass of lemon water first thing in every morning on an
    empty stomach and try my best to eat as clean as possible within my current
    financial means.
