The detox diet of 10 days: learn to eat well and lose weight without going hungry

A journey to detoxify and rekindle the body itself, losing up to 5 kilos in just 10 days. This is the program designed by the medical nutritionist Mark Hymann, director of the Cleveland Clinic Center for Functional Medicine, famous in the United States especially for the functional approach, which aims to care for the entire body. Now, after his latest book 'The diet of the glycemic balance' returns with 'The Detox Diet of 10 days', teaching how to recover the balance glycemic and burn fat from our own way of eating and cooking. 

Forbidden foods 

While it is true that we are what we eat, then we should think and reflect on the foods that benefit or harm us in our day today. In the program, devised and scientifically tested by Hyman, the first step is to detoxify the kitchen itself is to eliminate the foods that harm us. Forget about sugar, monosodium glutamate (which makes us eat more), salt and focus on fresh fruit and vegetables purchased directly from the market. In summary, your first advice is to wash your hands and start cooking with love because no prepared dish assures us that we are ingesting 'harmful' elements for the digestion of each organism.

Shopping list

Hyman insists that the dishes that make up this diet are not bland. The spices that detoxify the most are turmeric, thyme or Cayenne pepper. But the great novelty is that you can use sauces, such as Digione mustard and seeds and vegetable oils have to become a mandatory condiment. 


According to Hyman, coffee and dairy are the first cause of inflammation of our body. That is why he advises to take in the morning a good bowl of fresh and dried fruit, with a touch of ginger and cucumber, a strawberry and almond smoothie, a protein with nuts, pumpkin and hemp seeds or the combined kiwi and seeds of chia. Food For the meal break, there are two options. Or a hot soup broth or what Dr. Hymann calls 'the super salad buffet', that is, an abundant choice of non-starchy vegetables, such as asparagus, beet and cauliflower. In each case, it is important to add that to have the necessary energy to reach the end of the day, you always have to use protein such as chicken, turkey or salmon.

Dinner In this case, it is possible to choose if we want to get into interesting preparations such as coconut curry with salmon, base recipes with chicken and an Asian touch or grilled salmon with onion marmalade. The important thing, as for food, is to consume proteins accompanied by plenty of vegetables without starch. And for those who do not want to eat meat, there are several vegetarian and vegan proposals that introduce tofu and tempeh instead of the usual animal proteins.
