Dr. Oz said liquid detox cleanses cause rapid weight loss and torch belly fat on the Jan. 27 episode of the Dr. Oz Show.

"Juice and food cleanses are hotter than ever!" said Dr. Oz, who said a detox cleanse strengthens your immune system and invigorates your entire body.

Dr. Oz's guest was Dr. Alejandro Junger, author of Clean Gut. In addition to weight loss, Dr. Junger said detox cleanses prevent heart disease, cancer, insomnia and depression.

Junger said his 3-day all-liquid cleanse detoxifies your body from the damage caused by too much processed food and helps melt away body fat. The 3-Day All-Liquid Cleanse involves the following:

  • Only liquid meals for three days (no solid food allowed).
  • Your diet will be three liquid meals and one liquid snack per day.
  • You should consume 14 to 20 grams of protein a day.
  • Your diet must include healthy fats.

Dr. Oz suggested taking milk thistle to help your liver with the detoxification and a probiotic to promote the growth of good gut bacteria, which have been proven to accelerate weight loss.
