January 2020 - Issue # 074 - Use This 3 Day Mini Detox to Help You Succeed With Any Weight Loss Program You Choose

Happy New Year Everyone, So Glad You’re Back

I love this time of year when so many of us are inspired to do better, eat better and live better.

And when it comes to weight loss there are a million diet plans at our disposal. Most people know what diet works best for them; it’s just a matter of putting it in motion and following through.

A great way to strengthen and prepare yourself for any type of weight loss program is by starting with this 3 day mini detox first.

It’s also well known as “The 3 Day Apple Diet” and just as its name that is exactly what it is.

Even though the menu is boring offering only one type of food, it is impossible to get hungry on this diet because you can eat as much as you want, well as many apples as you want.

So with that promise of not having to starve yourself, do you think you can eat only apples for 3 days?

If the answer is yes, than in 3 short days’ lots of wonderful things will happen to you.

This is definitely not the first time I have talked about this mini detox and it definitely won’t be the last because I love this 3 day program. It is easy to do and does so much good in such little time.

So if you want to cleanse your body, shed some unwanted pounds, get stronger and feel more energized, then you should definitely take on this three day challenge.

About The 3 Day Apple Diet (Mini Detox)

It's possible that you've heard of this program before. Whether people are promoting it for weight loss or a way to help detox the body I'm sure the thought was inspired by Edgar Cayce.

Edgar Cayce (born 1877- died 1945) was an American who dabbled in many subjects such as reincarnation, religion, was considered a mystic clairvoyant (psychic), but most importantly dedicated much time for healing the sick.

Well, regardless of where you have heard or read about the apple diet all I can say it's a great tool to promote quick weight loss and cleansing.

So here is the Edgar Cayce's 3 Day Apple Diet:

Though Cayce created this 3 day program as a way to help detox the body, many people use it for a fast and easy way to shed some unwanted pounds.

This diet helps detoxify our bodies and can be done several times a year.


First, you will need to purchase some apples; organic apples if possible would be the best choice.

Cayce recommends buying "jenneting" apples, which are apples that ripen early in the season. Two varieties of this type are Delicious or Jonathan.

You can use other types of apples too, as all types are beneficial for this program. I often use Honey Crisp or Fuji as those are my favorites.

So for 3 days the menu is simple, you need eat only raw apples. This can be considered one of the major pluses of this program is that you never have to worry about meal preparation, or cooking, or being hungry because you can eat as many raw apples as you wish.

This has to be one of the easiest cleanses I have ever done with absolutely fantastic results. Weight loss during this 3 day plan can vary greatly from person to person as everyone is different and even though you will lose weight; it is the detox that is the focus here.

One question that is quite commonly asked is should the apples be peeled before eating them?

If you bought organic apples, then the peel is fine to eat, though non-organic ones should be peeled before eating.

This next part is optional: (I myself avoid this step)

Before going to bed on the 3rd (last) day of the diet, it is recommended that you drink half a cup of extra virgin olive oil. This helps with the removal of toxins from your body.

What to Drink on The Diet:

Drink plenty of distilled water that is room temperature. You can also enjoy warm herbal teas that have no caffeine, added sugars or sweeteners. Avoid drinking hot or cold liquids.

All this should be no problem as it's only for 3 short days.

Why it Works So Well:

Because Apples are:

Low in calories

High in soluble fiber

Fiber helps keep you feeling full

Prevents constipation

Aids with digestion

Helps lower cholesterol

Contain antioxidants that help detoxify the body

Good source of malic acid, which is an amazing liver cleanser

Also Malic acid and pectin fiber help clean the intestinal tract and leach toxins from the blood stream that may reduce muscular pain and may help those who suffer from fibromyalgia

Tips and Cautionary Points:

If your job entails hard physical labor throughout the day, this diet will probably not be good for you on those heavy work days.

So if your job is demanding and you can only do this on a weekend when not at work, that is good too.

For those of us with less physical jobs this 3 day diet should be no problem.

Avoid taking vitamins during the fast, as the body will just work harder trying to dispose of them

Since this is actually a fast your body will go into detox mode. As the toxins from your liver, kidneys and other organs release these toxins into the bloodstream you may feel a little irritable, more so on the second day. You may also experience headache.

For people with medical issues or concerns, please consult your physician before starting any diet or detox programs.


At the end of the apple diet most people feel great, more energized, clearer mental clarity, physically stronger. Not only that we know when we help the body eliminate toxins that in return helps us fight and prevent disease.

So if you feel that you can manage three days for this detox, then grab a bag of apples and a couple jugs of distilled water and give it a go.

It will be a great way to start off the New Year and a great way to prepare for any weight loss plan you have chosen.
