5 Day Detox Elimination Diet

Updated: Oct 30, 2022

I love this challenge for you because there’s no real “diet” to follow, you are just eliminating 1 thing a day.


The toughest part will be you reading labels and ingredients making sure the thing you are eating, doesn’t have that food item.


Day 1: No Added Sugar Day

Day 2: No Dairy Day

Day 3: No Artificial Sweeteners Day

Day 4: No Bread Day or wheat products

Day 5: No caffeine Day


Day 1: No Sugar:

  1. it has syrup (examples: corn syrup, rice syrup)

  2. the word ends in “ose” (examples: fructose, sucrose, maltose, dextrose)

  3. “sugar” is in the name (examples: raw sugar, cane sugar, brown sugar, confectionary sugar)

Day 2: No Dairy


By law, food companies must label their products clearly if they contain milk.


When reading labels for milk, look for milk to be labeled either in parentheses after an ingredient in the ingredient list or in a statement under the ingredient list. Sometimes it will be in bold.


Day 3: No Artificial Sweeteners Day


If the food seems like it should contain more calories or grams of sugar than it states, it probably contains artificial sweeteners


Food manufacturers only are required to list nonnutritive sweeteners among the ingredients such as saccharin (Sweet n' Low), aspartame (Equal), and sucralose (Splenda)


Day 4: No Bread Day or wheat products


Bread wheat, or common wheat, is the primary species.


Several other closely related species include durum, spelt, emmer, einkorn, and Khorasan wheat.


White and whole-wheat flour are key ingredients in baked goods, such as bread.


Other wheat-based foods include pasta, noodles, semolina, bulgur, and couscous.


Day 5: No caffeine Day


Caffeine is required to be listed in the ingredients list on food and beverage product labels, and some manufacturers also choose to list the quantity of caffeine on product labels as well.


You will quickly realize once you eliminate some of these items how dependent you are upon them (especially coffee) and you will also see how your body reacts the next day.


The day of you might feel off, but the next day you will probably feel pretty good.


This will show you which foods to keep, decrease intake or completely eliminate.


Tag me on facebook/instagram as you do them daily, so I can hold you accountable.


Then reach out to me after you’ve done 5 days straight for your next challenge.
