THE DETAILS: Whether you’re looking to try the Paleo diet or want to support your training, there’s a plan for you. And if there isn’t, the team will create a bespoke programme to suit your needs. From £46.95 per day.

Best For A Reset:

Detox Kitchen

If you’ve overdone it this summer, the Detox Kitchen’s three-day Reset could be the perfect choice. An intermittent fasting plan designed in collaboration with a nutritional therapist, the 1,000-calorie programme comprises juices, salads, light stews and snacks, and there’s a vegan option, too. If fasting isn’t for you, explore the Detox Kitchen’s other meal plans, including its bestselling Green Cleanse, a minimum three-day set of grain-free, plant-based meals to kickstart the body’s cleansing processes. Whichever you choose, rest assured the food is delicious – think satay salad, black dhal, vegetable miso stew, fruit and nut-laden bircher muesli, roasted aubergine with sauerkraut, and daily juices and smoothies.

THE DETAILS: The Protein Three-day Reset costs £120, and the vegan option £105. Prices for other cleanses start from £37 per day. There are also discounts for plans lasting over 14 days – ideal if you’re looking to make long-term changes.
