The Cleansing Detox We’ll Be Starting the Year Off With
Holiday heart is a real thing, and as you ease back into work this coming week, you may consider jump-starting the decade with a cleansing detox. Our co-founder Andrew recommends the Clean program, founded by Dr. Alejandro Junger, an adrenal fatigue expert and the author of new book Clean 7, whose work has garnered A-list devotees in everyone from Demi Moore to Naomi Campbell. Gwyneth Paltrow, another die-hard fan, is also known to begin her new year by inviting Goop readers to follow along on her routine cleanse. Junger’s detox kit offers a few different plans: a 21-day cleanse, a less intensive 21-day elimination diet, and a much abbreviated 3-day mini cleanse (which recently launched and comes with far fewer demands that make it feasible to incorporate into a long weekend). There are smoothies, supplements, and a list of “cleanse-approved” foods, which, TL:DR, means a cold-turkey goodbye to coffee, sugar, wine, alcohol, and nightshades, among other energy-sapping culprits. Andrew attests: It’s much better than it sounds.
