Have you wondered if you might benefit from a detox diet? Wishing you could whittle your waistline and fit into those skinny jeans? Dr. Mehmet Oz recently explored three different types of detox plans and explained how to choose the right one for weight loss and health. They're among the most popular ways for celebrities to slim down and look fit and fabulous on the red carpet, and now you can get the skinny here!

Dr. Alejandro Junger served as the detox diet expert for this episode of the "Dr. Oz Show." He's the author of "Clean Gut: The Breakthrough Plan for Eliminating the Root Cause of Disease and Revolutionizing Your Health" and "Clean -- Expanded Edition: The Revolutionary Program to Restore the Body's Natural Ability to Heal Itself."

To determine the right detox diet for you, Dr. Junger explained that three types exist: Liquid cleanse, the gut flush and the vegan cleanse. Your symptoms and condition can help you find the right type for you.

If you're sluggish, eat primarily processed food and carry your fat all over your body, Dr. Junger recommends his 3-Day Liquid Cleanse. It will boost your weight loss while detoxifying your entire body.

Meals for Liquid Cleanse

  • Breakfast: Liquid meal: shake
  • Lunch: Liquid meal: shake
  • Dinner: Liquid meal: shake or soup
  • Snacks: Green juice, 1 cup of almonds, or 1 cup of berries

Key Rules

  • No Solid Foods: Drink three liquid meals
  • Add Plant Protein to Shakes: Add at least 14 to 20 grams of plant protein to your shakes throughout the day. Tip: You can find plant protein in health food stores or online, such as Lifetime Life's Basics Plant Protein, which has 22 grams of protein per serving.
  • Include Healthy Fats.
  • Avoid all nightshade vegetables (tomatoes, bell peppers, eggplant, potatoes)
  • Green Juice: Have a green vegetable juice as a snack

Do you have a bloated belly caused by too much sugar, alcohol and fat? Then Dr. Junger recommends the 5-Day Gut Flush Cleanse weight loss plan:
