BACKGROUND Start the Diet Now Advertisement

The Cooler Cleanse is a detox diet was created by actress Salma Hayek.

For fifteen years, Salma has used juice cleanses as regular part of her health and beauty maintenance program. In 2008, Salma approached New York City juicing expert Eric Helms to co-create the perfect recipes for her nutritional juice cleanses. Together, they created the Cooler Cleanse, a juice-based detox plan that is packed with nutrients and convenient to follow.

The Cooler Cleanse is a juice-only fast where Cooler Cleanse fresh juices are delivered to your door every day. You simply replace all edible meals and snacks with six Cooler Cleanse juices for three or five days as you give your body a rest from eating and digesting regular food.

There are three Cooler Cleanse plans you can choose from:

  • 3-Day: Short and easy to fit into your busy schedule, the signature cleanse boosts body functioning, increases energy while making you look and feel lighter and brighter.You receive six drinks per day with a combined caloric intake of less than 1,100 daily calories.

  • 5-Day: This cleanse allows you to go a bit deeper into cleanse-mode. Two deliveries of fresh juices are provided, ensuring that your juices are as fresh as possible.

  • Raw Cooler: Artfully prepared raw-food meals can be delivered daily before and after your Cooler Cleanse, to help you ease into, and transition out of the cleanse to obtain maximum benefit from your commitment. The Raw Coolers can also be ordered on their own as a Raw Food Detox or can be used before or after your Cooler Cleanse.

DIET and NUTRITION

Here is how The Cooler Cleanse program works:

You replace your three regular meals with six fresh-pressed juices delivered to your door in an easy-to-carry cooler. You cut out the snacks and stimulants like alcohol and caffeine, and drink plenty of water. You take care of yourself and get plenty of rest.

The six drinks per day have a combined caloric intake of less than 1,100 daily calories.

Juices on the three-day or five-day Cooler Cleanse program include the following:

  • Almond Nut Milk made with almonds, dates, vanilla beans and filtered water.
  • Essential Green made with cucumber, celery, parsley, spinach, kale, dandelion greens, watercress, pear, lemon, and ginger.
  • Essential Red made with carrot, beet, fuji apple, lemon.
  • Grapefruit and mint made with ruby-red grapefruit, mint.
  • Young Coconut water made with 100% pure, raw, young thai coconut water.
  • Pineapple and ginger and watermelon and lime are two additional juices.

Each juice is also designed to accomplish certain health benefits. For instance, the Essential Red rejuvenates tired-looking skin and boosts blood oxygenation and the Essential Green offers cleansing functions of the kidneys and liver.

The Raw Cooler is a complete menu of meals that are delivered to your door every day. This includes colorful, nutritious soups, energizing salads and entrees, and two fresh pressed juices, all created by expert raw-food chef using top-quality, organic ingredients. This food is designed to decrease your caloric intake, relieve your body of hard-to-digest food, and boost functioning with vital nutrients, while showing your senses how pleasurable raw food and juices can be.

EXERCISE

Moderate exercise is recommended for each of the days you are on The Cooler Cleanse diet. No specific guidelines are provided, but since your calorie count is much lower than what you are normally used to, it is probably best to stay away from strenuous activity and instead opt for activities like brisk walking, biking, yoga and light weight-lifting.

CONCLUSION

The Cooler Cleanse is an all-juice detox fast that helps you trim down and healthy-up in three or five days. While detox diets are often criticized by those in the health and medical professions, fresh and all-juice diets like The Cooler Cleanse are nutrient-packed and offer a short-term way to take a break from processed foods, while also jump-starting a healthy eating or weight loss plan.

The Cooler Cleanse receives high marks for its abundance of fresh and nutrient-rich fruits, vegetables and nuts, most notably, coconut water, a low-calorie and electrolyte-packed natural drink. While The Cooler Cleanse may not be ideal for those who need to lose 20 pounds or more, it can be used in a safe and effective way to spur quick weight loss or as motivation to healthy up a diet plan.

But just like anything new, if you have a preexisting health condition, talk to your doc first.

This diet made me so sick that I was in bed for 2 days, and afraid to leave the house on the 3rd day for fear I would be sick in public. When I spoke to the company and tried to return the unused product, they said No recourse, no refund without a doctor's letter.
I am not feeling well enough to go to the doctor and do not want to spend the money for the visit, when a company like this would probably continue to say, "NO recourse; no refund."
