Ashley Conrad's 7-Day Clutch Cleanse

Before you begin an intense training program, you need to prepare your body, mind, and life for what's to come. This simple week-long program is the perfect way to prepare for whatever comes next!

When you start a new training program, you're starting it as the person you are right now. That may sound obvious, but look back at your past and ask yourself: Have you ever gone straight from "couch" to "hardcore" and regretted it afterward?

A lot of people throw themselves into intense training and dieting even though they've been totally off track for months or years. That jolt puts an enormous strain on their body, mind, and lifestyle. They feel awful, and they end up crashing before they can see results.

I'm not interested in just having you start my programs. I want you to finish them! That's why I created this seven-day Clutch Cleanse. It's the first step toward better fitness, no matter what you decide to do afterward. And unlike other cleanses you may have tried, it doesn't have a hard-and-fast meal plan that tells you how to live your life. It's a simple food list, plus a one-sentence workout plan.

You can do this! I've used this program time after time with my clients, and the response has been overwhelmingly positive. The people who try it see their metabolisms rise, their energy levels soar, and they're mentally and physically prepared to challenge themselves in the weeks to come.

Start here, follow it to the letter for just one week, and you'll set yourself up for serious success down the road.

Rules of the 7-Day Cleanse

For the next seven days, focus your nutrition on the basics. Eat poultry and fish, green vegetables, healthy fats and oils, and select, easy-to-digest carbohydrates. That may sound restrictive, but definitely not when you compare it to a lot of the so-called "cleanses" out there these days!

This is all about giving your body food that is easy to digest. I want your body to be able to draw nutrients, raw minerals, and vitamins from everything you consume.

Don't worry, you can survive being away from your guilty pleasures for one week. Remember, what you do—and eat—after this week is up to you.

Non-Approved Foods

  • Heavily processed foods
  • Artificial ingredients
  • Dairy
  • Red meat
  • Alcohol
  • Nuts
  • Soy
  • Most grains, especially those containing gluten

Proteins Keep it Clean

Yes, protein is definitely approved, as long as you get it from vegan protein powders, poultry, wild-caught fish, and eggs. Avoid heavily processed meats with chemical additives, like prepared sausages and lunch meats.



Approved proteins
Serving size: 3.5 oz.

Vegetables Keep it Green

Green vegetables should never leave your diet, so of course you can consume them on this seven-day plan. The nutritional benefits of kale, collard greens, cucumber, and okra are off the charts! Try to eat only organic, raw vegetables when possible, but most importantly, prioritize green vegetables over other types of vegetables this week.



Approved vegetables
Serving size: 1-2 cups
  • Organic cooked greens
  • Organic salad greens
  • Organic asparagus
  • Organic cucumber
  • Organic broccoli
  • Organic zucchini
  • Organic kale
  • Organic okra
  • Organic celery
  • Organic spinach
  • Organic arugula
  • Organic cabbage
  • Organic spaghetti squash

Carbohydrates Keep it Simple

Stick with carbohydrates that are easy for your body to digest. Sweet potatoes, different types of fruit, oats, and quinoa—an easily digested grain—are all perfect for this cleanse. Between the veggies and these carbs, this isn't a "low-carb" cleanse by most definitions, so you should still feel great and have plenty of energy for your daily workout.



Approved carbs
Serving size: 1/3 cup
  • Organic sweet potato
  • Strawberries
  • Organic yams
  • Blueberries
  • Rolled oats
  • Carrots
  • Bananas
  • Beets

Healthy Fats Keep Them Around!

Fats are the first thing to go when many people commit to improving how they eat, and that's a shame. Healthy fats from good sources are vital to this cleanse, as well as to your future fitness success overall. I want you to eat a range of them over the next seven days, not just the same one over and over again.



Approved healthy fats
Serving size: 1-2 tbsp
  • Premium extra-virgin olive oil
  • Virgin coconut oil
  • Virgin pumpkin oil
  • Whole chia seed
  • Whole flax seed (oil)
  • 1/4 avocado
  • Sunflower oil
  • Grapeseed oil

Your Seven-Day Plan

I'm not locking you into a specific food at a specific time. I don't like being told what to eat for lunch, and I don't expect you to do anything I don't like to do. So pick what you want, but stay within the parameters of the food lists and follow the schedule below. I think you can manage that!

You'll begin each day with my Detox Tea right after you wake up.

Clutch Bodyshop Detox Tea

Hot water (filtered): 8 oz.


Powdered ginger: 1/4 tsp


Squeezed organic lemon: 1/2


Organic cayenne: 1 pinch



Then, before you eat anything, perform your cardio. Keep it pretty brief, like 30-45 minutes max. You can break a sweat, but don't go all-out. This is all helping speed up the systems of your body, while not forcing it to recover from intense work.

What you do, like what you eat, is up to you. Here are just a few options:

  • Jogging or running
  • Boxing or kickboxing
  • Hiking
  • Jumping rope
  • Cardio circuit from Clutch Life

When you're done with your cardio, your first meal of the day will be a Clutch Bodyshop Protein Shake. Note that there are slight differences in the fruit servings for the men's and women's shakes. What you eat the rest of the day is up to you.

Protein powder will help you build muscle and stay full, so you can perform and look your best.* I strongly believe that whey protein should be made with only quality ingredients from hormone-free cows.
