I always here loads of info about detoxing. For weight loss or health reasons, a lot of people go about it in the wrong way. I've read so many articles about how the body naturally detoxes itself. While this is true, in order for your body to really detox itself as much as possible, I feel like you need to really clean up your diet. If you feel sluggish and really bloated, as I feel often, its important to really tune into your body and give it what it needs to "repair itself." Unfortunately, your body doesn't want candy and cookies. I wish it did and I'm not saying you shouldn't enjoy yourself, but truth of the matter is, your body runs best on whole and clean foods. It also digests these foods far more easily. When you digest more easily, your body runs more efficiently, and this allows for much quicker weight loss.
Here are some REASONABLE ways to detoxing your body, that anyone can incorporate into their diet, without going nuts (and by the way make sure you are eating plenty of these, nuts are great source of omega 3's!)
1. Water with lemon: Preferably in the morning. It helps to not only detox your body and well, not to get gross, but it really helps to get your bowels moving, but it kick starts your metabolism.
2. Green juices: Try any combination. Aim to have at least one a day! I am obsessed with these right now. They make you feel so good.
3. Lots of fruits and vegetables. Lets face it. I think anyone of us can increase our fruit/veggie quota for the day. Its what our bodies want.
4. Nuts/Seeds. I've read numerous times over and over that a plant-based diet is what the body most easily digests.
