    rnstar43 what i'm doing with the 2013 one is that i made my own shopping list from the recipes... thats a start :)

  • 5 Feb, 2013

    It doesn't appear that anyone is responding here or being very helpful. First time I decide to do a detox diet and this is incredibly disorganized. The shopping lists are incomplete week one does not match week one recipes, the shopping lists are hard to find and the recipes are even harder. You should really consider fixing this immediately, or don't post these diets anymore. Very discouraging. It's difficult enough to begin a diet like this, then the shopping and recipes are incorrect.

    @depauw76 : You have the cleansing broth recipe on this weeb site. Enter the therm in the searching area or look on the week 1 recipes of the Diet plan 2013 (home page). You use it as basic for soups or stew.

  • 20 Jan, 2013

    what is cleansing broth???

  • 20 Jan, 2013

    this looks like a manageable program.....but I just can't eat beets! what could be substituted?....to me beets taste like dirt

  • 16 Jan, 2013

    to babymomma3. Maybe peaches.

  • 16 Jan, 2013

    I'm diabetic and some of the am drinks have a high sugar content. Do I stick to just the green drink which is low in carbs for breakfast.

  • 13 Jan, 2013

    I'm allergic to mangoes. Can anyone recommend a substitute?

  • 13 Jan, 2013

    When will the 2013 Action Plan be posted as mentioned in the Jan/Feb 2013 issue of Whole Living? Or is it the same as 2012??

  • 29 Oct, 2012

    You have to click on read more right after the Avocado with Bell Pepper and Tomatoes recipe.

  • 7 Sep, 2012

    Is anyone giving answers to these questions?

  • 30 Jul, 2012

    Do you have the weekly shopping list in a format to print in which it is more condensed?

  • 21 May, 2012

    I can't get all the recipes either.

  • 21 May, 2012

    I can't get all the recipes either.

  • 4 May, 2012

    I meant grapefruit.

  • 4 May, 2012

    Are you juicing the entire orange or peeling it first?

  • 16 Apr, 2012

    I am unable to access all recipes as well. I would like the Sweet potato, celery and apple salad as well as the roased peppers, cauliflower and almonds meal.

  • 29 Mar, 2012

    I also don't get the full week of recipes when I click on the "print all recipes" link - just the juice ones. I was hoping for an easy way to view and print off each week in one nice clean pdf. darn.

  • 26 Mar, 2012

    hay what up,, this juice is great...

  • 4 Mar, 2012

    Has anyone found a way to add this to Ziplist? I found Ziplist on marthastewart.com and it was so easy to add all of the ingredients and recipes straight to my phone.

  • 2 Mar, 2012

    This is so frustrating! I appreciate the shopping list, but the majority of the recipes simply are not on here. Other than the juice recipes, the only other ones I can find are the ones that are already in the magazine! Has anyone else had success in locating the actual lunch and dinner recipes? I have been looking forward to this cleanse and even talked my boss into joining, but we can't do it successfully without the right tools...

    barb94044 - For the recipes, there's a link just above Breakfast on this page that says "Print Week 1 Recipes."

  • 19 Feb, 2012

    Am I missing something? Where are the recipes at? If the Week 1 Shopping List tells me the ingredients for the Spiced Butternut Squash Soup, where do I get the recipe for it? It's not on the Week 1 Recipe page. Do the rest of the recipes come out of a book or magazine or something?

  • 17 Feb, 2012

    Try not to be so picky and be thankful this website offers free help to people who need it. Instead be thankful not spoiled.

  • 7 Feb, 2012

    I agree... This is not a shopping list, it's an ingredient list per meal... I think it would be a lot easier with 7 onions, 10 garlic cloves, etc... But nice work with this detox plan, trying it this week

  • 1 Feb, 2012

    I wish the Shopping List was condensed so I had a full list of all groceries needed per week. Instead, I am scanning through each meal to make sure I don't miss anything. For instance, why not say in week one I would need a total of 7 carrots, 4 apples, 1 cup of parsley, 1 1/2 bell peppers, etc. for my meals and smoothies...

  • 28 Jan, 2012

    I think you have done a great job with this 2012 detox plan ... between the website and my Whole Living magazine article all the bases are covered - and colorfully! Many thanks,

    These aren't recipes, they are ingredients lists. Where are the actual recipes that tell you how to make things. For example, with the Sweet Potato Apple salad, do you cook the sweet potato?

  • 20 Jan, 2012

    I hope they'll lay it out better in the future because both the last two years have just confused me. It says to double up on recipes, but if I'm only going to eat one serving per meal, then there are actually way more servings than I need for lunch and dinner (not for breakfast, though).

    Also, when I click on the "View all week one recipes" link, it takes me to a PDF of the page out of the print journal that doesn't actually have all of the recipes on it. Come now, really?

  • 20 Jan, 2012

    I want to change my shopping list and go back and forth to the menu. the page with the shopping list does not allow you to edit. Please help

  • 18 Jan, 2012

    I'm having trouble figuring out what ONE serving size is in each of the recipes. I know it says how many it serves so do I just divide the amount of food by that number? I'd rather have a precise serving size amount so I don't overeat. I'm the only one doing this in my household anyway so I don't need to share per say.

  • 15 Jan, 2012

    How do you prepare the lunch and dinner items?
