Whether you want to shed those excess pounds gained from indulging in comfort food, or simply want to put a little spring in your step, there's a detox method that can work for you.
A top tip is to load up on asparagus, cherries, and artichokes, all of which help boost the body's liver function to help you detox naturally. Eliminating processed foods containing refined carbohydrates and sugars can also let you feel energized and less bloated.
You can also try the popular Elimination Diet. While it's difficult to eliminate all foods, it's proven that cutting out allergy triggering foods such as sugar, alcohol, gluten, dairy and soy milk, caffeine, and factory-farmed meat for a few weeks then slowly reintroducing them into your diet can help you uncover any negative hidden effects.
If you suffer from common illnesses it is helpful to note if changing your diet has elevated your symptoms of conditions such as Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS), fatigue, acid reflux, or eczema which are all associated with excessive dairy, gluten, and caffeine consumption.
Staying properly hydrated is essential to aiding concentration and maintaining healthy organ function. It also plays an important role in eliminating free-radical waste essential for a good detox.
More than half your body weight is made up of water, but we often don't get enough, leading to headaches, water retention, fatigue, or lightheadedness.
By swapping calorie rich coffees and fizzy drinks for water you can also cut out empty calories and help eliminate bloating.
