3 Day Juice Fast Plan





The 3 Day Juice Fast Plan and cleanse is great for beginners and keeps in mind your goals to get cleansed, detoxed, and maybe even lose weight. You can achieve all of that and more if you follow the core of this plan. This 3 Day Juice Fast Plan is just that, a plan. You don’t have to follow it 100% word for word or meal for meal, but you should follow the core advice within it. A few things to keep in mind when following the 3 Day Juice Fast Plan.

First

If a certain recipe is unappealing to you, make substitutions that are similar. For example, if a recipe calls for Kale but you can’t get any Kale or just don’t like Kale, then replace it with Spinach or even Broccoli. It’s okay to replace, substitute, or change up the recipes.

Second

You should not eat any solids during this 3 Day Juice Fast Plan and cleanse. It defeats the purpose of it. So stay away from any solids, you’ll be Just On Juice for three days.

Third

If you get headaches, or strong cravings, it is normal. Just stay focused and stay on the juice. Make an extra Juice to drink if you feel like your about to cave in and eat something solid.

Fourth
Drink at least 16 oz of water after each juice meal. Make sure you are drinking plenty of water throughout the day.

Fifth

Start each day off by juicing 1/2 lemon (peeled) and mix it with 12-16 ounces of warm to hot water. I do this as soon as I wake up each morning, it’s important to cleanse your digestive system and give you a good boost of energy.

Sixth

It’s recommended to have between 4-6 juices per day each consisting of 16-20 ounces. The below list is great to get you started with different juices. You can choose whichever juices you please while on your juice fast. The list takes into consideration you will try them all. So feel free to experiment while on your 3 day juice fast plan!

Always Wash and Clean your produce before juicing it!Clean out your juicer after each use.

It helps to take Ziploc gallon size bags and prepare your fruit and veggies ahead of time.

I will put breakfast in one bag, and lunch in another bag, it cuts down juicing time in the morning.

REMEMBER, you don’t have to follow this 3 Day Juice Fast Plan 100%. Feel free to experiment with your own veggies and fruits while juicing.

You can come up with your own recipes so use the above recipes as guidelines.

Make sure you are coring your apples as you do not really want to juice the seeds.

You can pour any of these drinks over ice and enjoy them, or drink them how they are.

Do not add salt, but feel free to add spices such as pepper, fresh mint, basil, oregano, chives, or thyme.

  1. Hi, Just wanted to ask a question. Is it ok to add Chia seeds or LSA to the juices, or even psyllium husk? Thank you.

  2. Hi Donnie,

    I take anti depressant every day, would it effect the diet?

    Thanks

  3. I only see 2 different juices for breakfast, lunch, and dinner, but it says we have to drink about 6 juices a day. Do we drink 2 breakfast juices, 2 lunch juices, and 2 dinner juices?

  4. Is it okay to smoke during the cleanse? :\

  5. I decided I am going to do a 7 day juice cleanse, and I was talking about it to my boyfriend and surprisingly he said that he would do it as well. That excites me! However, he is 6’5 and bult big. How many juices should he be drinking, and should a pure protein be added?

  6. Hi Donnie,

    I’m thinking of starting my first 3 day cleanse next week. My question is if it’s ok to workout while doing the cleanse I’ve seen many diffferent opinions regarding this topic, being that I will be following this cleanse I wanted to check with you, what’s your advice?

  7. can these be done in a vitamix?

    • Yes!

    • Kinda, but you will need LOTS of liquid to supplement or you will have a veggie mash, not juice.

      I didn’t like adding too much water so I press the veggie mash and squeeze it out using a cheesecloth or metal strainer. This works best as these recipes seem better suited for juicers.

  8. Donnie,
    I’m on day 3 of the juice fast. By evening of day one I had a screaming headache and was very nauseous. I ate a few saltines. On day 2 I ate watermelon and a grapefruit in addition to all my juices. Now I’m wondering if I’ve sabotaged my juice fast. I hate to think I ruined the main purpose–a detoxification. I still have periodic headaches and was definitely Hungary this afternoon. On a plus side my juices are healthy and fantastic.

    • Traditionally, in a juice fast you aren’t supposed to eat solid foods even though the foods you are consuming are healthy. The reason behind that is when food is consumed in its liquid form it has a much faster effect, as far as how nutrients enter the blood stream. It’s not sabotaged, as you say but if this is what you want to do, in order to get the effects you should follow the no solids rule.

      Another note is you claim to be nauseated and have headaches. This is common during detox. All the junk you’ve put into your body over the years is being extracted from you with a detox cleanse. Your body has to work in overload to figure out how to get this awesome source of nutrients in and the junk out. Think of it like a puppy who gets a new toy, he doesn’t know what to do with himself cause he’s soooooo excited!!! I hope this helps!!! :) good luck on your detox journey.

      Oh almost forgot!!!! If you have netflix I encourage you to watch a documentary called Fat Sick and Nearly dead. It’s about a guy who does a juice cleanse and travels America to educated people on the effects of it. Might bring your some encouragement as to why this is such a good thing!!:) ok really now….. Happy juicing!!!:)

  9. can i drink fruit juice only as i hate veges ? what are the average no of fruits should i eat per day ?

    • Rana, you can’t drink only fruit juice, that would be a sugar overload. You need to keep your juices 80% veggie and 20% fruit. Don’t worry about averages, as long as you are having a juice when you feel hungry you will be fine. Cheers!

  10. Hi, im looking for help, but don’t seem to be getting a response..
    am I able to prepare my juices in the morning to take to work, they would be kept in the fridge once I arrived. Also roughly what times do you have the 4-6 juices. Thanks heaps..

    • Bianca, you most certainly can prepare your juices in the morning and take them to work with you. Just keep them in airtight containers in the refrigerator and they will be fine. Don’t worry about times to drink, just have a juice when you first start to feel hungry. Keep me posted! Cheers!

      • Thanks for responding Donnie. This is my first time at trying this, i’ve just purchased my juicer! Would you recommend just starting off for 3 days first? Or i was thinking maybe 5 days?

        • Bianca, set a weight limit instead of a time limit. It will be much easier that way. Cheers!

          • Hi Donnie. Thanks for getting back to me. I mainly want to do this for my skin and to feel good. Though I wouldn’t min losing 3-4 kgs. How long would you suggest to cleanse? I’m worried if I set the goals to high like 7 days I won’t achieve it.

    • Maybe you haven’t received a response because the answer is in the article. You just have to read it. You drink the juice when you are hungry. That’s not to hard to understand…

  11. Hello Donnie,

    I was wondering if I could have juice in the am for breakfast and for dinner, but have a light salad for lunch?

    • Stephanie, while you can add a salad for lunch, that would defeat the purpose of a juice fast, especially if your goal is to lose weight quickly. On the other hand, if you do add a salad and keep it all healthy (no dressings) you will lose weight and detox, just at a slower pace. Cheers!

  12. I tried the 3 day juice fast. Great recipes! I found all the ones I tried very tasty and delicious to drink. I skipped the bruschetta tang because I knew I would not like the ingredients and substituted it for the Hulk. I felt great the first 2 days and it was pretty easy, but then on the 3rd day mid-afternoon, I had to have solids. I was so hungry and much more so than I was the first 2 days. I will try again in a few weeks, or maybe just substitute meals with juices. I found your grocery list and tips very helpful and was able to make my juices very easily once I prepped all the veggies and fruits the night before and placed them in 1 lb ziplock bags. Thanks for all your info and the great recipes!

  13. Can I drink green tea during the 3 day fast?
