Just google detox and you’ll come up with so many different plans — it can make your head spin. How do you detox the right way? As a registered dietitian, I detox quarterly with the science-based D.TOXTM program created by Life Time.

Only 14 days to a better you.

Many of my clients say D.TOX has been their jumpstart to create life-long healthy way of life habits. In only 14 days, the average weight loss is 5 to 7 pounds and most experience increased energy, improved sleep, decreased bloating and notice a clearer complexion. Others identify food sensitivities that may have been the root of skin irritations and physical discomfort for years.

Detoxification not deprivation.

What’s more, our D.TOX won’t leave you feeling deprived — individuals find they’re more satisfied after meals, learn new cooking skills and experience a new found joy with food.

Convenient and cost-effective (it’s free).

This is a free online program — you can listen to the podcasts at your convenience and download the program materials, including recipes and meal plans. 

Safe and supportive.

As a licensed professional, you can trust that I’ll be guiding you through the D.TOX program safely. You’ll receive supportive weekly emails from me (with my personal tips and recipes) as well as access to online support from other world-class dietitians.

Featured D.TOX success stories   

Beth C.

"I've never done a detox or cleanse program before and wasn't looking for a ‘weight-loss’ program but had gotten to a point — despite being a cardio-loving runner, cycle instructor and generally a pretty fit person —where I felt that my metabolism had gotten out of whack. I had slowly put on ~ 5–7 extra pounds that just wouldn't come off, rarely got a sound night sleep and felt run down.   

When an injury put my marathon training on hold, I decided it would be the perfect time to give DTOX a try and still make forward progress getting 'in shape' for my upcoming marathon. 

Within 3 days of eliminating the non-approved foods, my energy level increased, sleep improved and the fog began to clear. I was still able to keep up with my cycling regimen and didn't have to battle any fatigue or lack of energy.

The smoothies were a welcome treat and I felt they really helped boost my overall energy level and excitement for the program. This program has definitely had a life-changing impact. It's the first time that I've felt the impact that nutrition can have on your health, energy and mood.

I have definitely trimmed down and feel more fit. Two weeks after completing the program, I've maintained my weight loss goals and have chosen to avoid the non-approved foods as I've felt the impact they've had on my body.

My husband jumped on board with the program and I've had many friends ask me about DTOX as I've shared my success and the results have been obvious.”

"I started my first D.TOX when I joined the Life Time 90 Day Challenge in Spring 2016. I went in fully committed, head on, and admittedly suffered some headaches and sluggishness my first week by being off caffeine, a substance I have faithfully consumed every morning for the past 35 years. I did not deviate and stuck to the program.

I was pleasantly surprised how yummy the shakes tasted and how long I felt full from my smoothie shake every morning. About one and a half weeks into the program, I started to feel quite amazing. No longer did I crave my morning coffee or my nightly wine with some cheese. I mean why would I want to change my eating habits back to my favorites when I am feeling this incredible?

I kept going, and not only for the full 30 days of the program, but I continued throughout the entire 90 day challenge. During that time I never felt deprived and I even indulged in two glasses of red wine on nights out with friends and two pieces of celebratory birthday cake during the three months I was transforming.

I know my transformation results were 80% because of this program, and I have forever learned amazing eating habits. It is now one year later from my first and I am starting another D.TOX program. I love this program so much, I will commit to doing it at least once a year the rest of my life. Thank you Life Time for educating me about this amazing life changing product because I never would have dreamed I could feel (and look) so good. Especially now that I am over the big 5-0."

"I'm 54 years old, and have always been in generally good health, but noticed a downward trend on my late 40's. I began gaining weight. My hormones were doing 'those things' that happen to women my age. As I got in my early 50's I would tell myself that a few extra pounds didn't matter anyway.

I began my prep on January 15th and started the actual D.TOX on February 1st. Eliminating caffeine from my life was a challenge and took longer than a week. But I knew I could do it and that it would be worth it in the end. I followed the D.TOX program very carefully and am pleased with the results. I only lost a couple of pounds during the two-week detox phase, but after eight weeks (two weeks prep, two weeks detox and four weeks restore), I lost nine pounds and five percent body fat.

I feel that I'm in a good place on my journey to a healthier lifestyle. The biggest short-term impact I noticed was that I didn't need to take ibuprofen any more for daily aches and pains. Even more impressive were my numbers at my annual physical. When I had my screenings earlier this month, I passed all four tests! I know that it is from the changes in my diet due to habits that were introduced as part of the D.TOX program."
