No. The body is designed to detox its self as a matter of functioning on a day to day basis.

However, there is research that shows fasting now and again(no food only water) for as little as 16 hours a day(sleeping time is included!) is extremely beneficial to the body.

It turns on some amazing survival genes that have "super powers" to defend your body from invaders(ups your immune system-hyper) and slows aging by about 1/3.

As a diet, no. A light detox a couple of times a year is good.
