The Zero Belly 7-Day Cleanse
YOUR ONE WEEK SCHEDULE
7 a.m. Walk
10 a.m. Zero Belly drink

7:00 p.m. Dinner
This is a very simple plan that everyone can stick to. If you follow it you will surely notice changes in the first three days!
You shouldn’t eat anything for 12 to 15 hours since your last meal. When you fast during the night you will burn all that extra glucose you have eaten in the evening. There is a study which concluded that no matter what type of diet you are on, it is important when you eat. The study was conducted on mice which were fed in a timeframe of 9, 12, and 15 hours. The first two groups stayed healthy, whereas mice from the 15-hour group became overweight.
EXERCISE Walk in the morning.
If you are doing any type of workout you should stick to it and keep doing it. However, if you aren’t active you should start by walking for 10 minutes outdoors. This is an excellent way to get some sunlight. You will also burn calories while you are still fasting and there are researches which prove that you can burn 20% more fat when you fast and work out.
DRINKS Two tasty smoothies a day.
You should drink the Zero Belly Drink for your lunch and morning snack. You will get the needed protein, fat, and fiber, and in that way reduce bloating in your belly. Sun Warrior and Vega Sport are one of the best brands that sell these smoothies. They don’t contain a lot of calories, which means you will cut more than 500kcal per day.
P.M. SNACK Quick afternoon nibbles.
You should take one piece of fruit (or a veggie) and add 2 tbsp. of hummus, nut butter, or nuts as an afternoon snack.
DINNER Simple and healthy.
You should make your own meals for the following one week in order to make the cleanse work for you. You should include more veggies, protein, and healthy fats, but no fruits and grains. Don’t eat carbs or sugar because they will get stored as fat during your sleep.
Alcohol is a toxin which your body metabolizes while storing more calories into fat cells. You shouldn’t eat anything that contains alcohol as well.
WATER Drink 8 glasses per day.
Since you will be eating less food, you will also get less water from the foods you eat. Therefore, you should drink more water to prevent cravings and keep yourself hydrated.
If you can, you should stop eating after 7 pm because you will set up your body to start burning the fat. When you start this diet you will notice huge changes in your life and you will see that everything is coming back in order.
