What is a 3 Day Watermelon Detox

A good  way to cleanse your colon and detox your whole system is with this very simple 3 day watermelon detox-cleanse. No special herbs needed, no extra supplements of any kind, just 3 large watermelons averaging 20 pounds each.  Yes, you will hate watermelon by the end of the 3 days, but you will cleanse your whole system and you will like me count the days till you can do the next one.  I routinely do this twice a year.

You will need 3 large watermelons with seeds. Do not buy the seedless kind.


You can freeze part of the watermelon to make a natural watermelon slushie with if you grow tired of eating just watermelon and yes you can use sea salt on the watermelon.  Try to eat as many of the seeds as possible, as this is good for your kidneys.

On the night before the cleanse, wash your first watermelon well on the outside to free the rind of all pesticides and debree.  Now cut the watermelon in half, cover well and place in the refrigerator to cool.  When you wake up in the morning, plan on eating 1/2 of the watermelon for breakfast.

Note: The best way to do this cleanse is with room temperature watermelon as this is the sweetest and most natural state.

You can freeze part or continue to eat throughout the day.  You must eat the entire watermelon before sleeping.  

The second day you will continue the same procedure and plan on going to the bathroom ALOT!  You can safely do this cleanse on a workday, as you will not be sick.  The 3rd day you will continue to cleanse with the remaining watermelon you have left.

On the 4th day you want to begin eating slowly with soups, fruits and fresh salads.  Do not immediately eat regular food and allow your stomach to relax.  This simple detox is best done 2 or 3 times a year.  

NOTE: If you have a blood sugar imbalance, you need to use the Watermelon Salad throughout the day, as an addition to your regular meal plan or diet, not just watermelon.

Watermelon Salad


Cut up a portion of the watermelon and set aside. Add in some Romaine lettuce, small spinach leaves, green onions, cilantro and iceberg lettuce 

Take a large cucumber and slice them in circles. Next add in some chopped green onions and cilantro. Slice up an avocado and  then toss the greens with some olive oil, salt and pepper. Add this to the watermelon chunks and enjoy.

Do not buy pre-cut watermelon, as it may have lost some of its’ potency and has been refrigerated.
