A cleanse is a great way to detox, drop a few pounds and basically reset your body (and mind) if you’ve been on an over-indulging bender. Celebrities rely on them as well to prep for red carpets, movie roles and other times of high visibility, but you don’t have to be a Hollywood insider to cleanse like one—and you don’t necessarily have to give up solid food either. From juices and meal-replacement bars to soups and other crazy concoctions, here are five cleanse celebrity-approved options to consider.
The cleanse: Sakara Life Level II: Detox
The celebrities: Kate Hudson, Olivia Wilde, Chrissy Teigen, Gwyneth Paltrow, Lily Aldridge, Behati Prinsloo
Anyone who’s truly anyone seems to be doing Sakara these days, and this organic, plant-based meal-delivery service also offers a five-day deep-cleansing system that resets the microbiome, helps identify food triggers, boosts metabolism, reduces bloat and increases energy—but depending on where you live, you might have to get on a waitlist. Level II includes 100% plant-based, organic, gluten-free, dairy-free and nutrient-rich foods, broths and medical-grade supplements, so yes, this cleanse still allows you to eat.
The cleanse: BluePrint
The celebrities: Blake Lively, Nikki Reed, Olivia Wilde
Are you a cleanse newbie? BluePrint’s offerings are based on your—and your body’s—familiarity with cleansing, whether it’s your first or fiftieth time. Featuring 100% organic, raw, fresh fruit and vegetable juices, you drink six a day for one to three days (they can also be purchased a la carte if you want to start with replacing one or two meals a day) with only water or tea in between. The result: More energy, clarity and perhaps a need to tighten your belt slightly.
The cleanse: Pressed Juicery
The celebrities: Nicole Richie, Jessica Alba, Miranda Kerr, Molly Sims
With locations in New York, California and Las Vegas, Pressed Juicery is yet another juice-based cleanse. Offering three levels (Cleanse 1, Cleanse 2 and Cleanse 3) at with different calorie counts so you can choose based on your body’s needs or your cleanse experience, you can choose from one, three or five days of six juices, and the company recommends supplementing your sipping with chlorophyll and aloe vera waters to aid digestion and raise alkaline levels.
The cleanse: Kaeng Raeng
The celebrities: Jennifer Lopez, Lauren Conrad, Denise Richards.
With this detox cleanse, you’re three packets a day away from losing weight, eliminating toxins, reducing bloat and overall enhanced wellness. This three-day program features pouches filled with freeze-dried fruits and vegetables that you mix with water or non-dairy milk, and you can eat all the raw fruits and vegetables you want. The company recommends a salt-water flush for optimal results (Google it if you really want to know the gory details), so let’s just say “elimination” plays a big role in this cleansing program.
The cleanse: Master Cleanse
The celebrities: Beyoncé, Jared Leto, Demi Moore, Angelina Jolie
The OG of cleanses, this super-strict fast first debuted in the 1940s, but it experienced a resurgence in popularity in the 1970s, and in 2006 when Beyoncé used it to slim down for Dreamgirls. Perhaps the easiest DIY cleanse, you drink a blend of water, maple syrup, lemon juice and cayenne pepper—and that’s it—for a minimum of 10 days (and you need to slowly add solid foods back to your diet from there). The aforementioned salt-water flush is recommended as well, and while the Master Cleanse is super-strict, it results in major weight loss.
