Here is why you need to rethink your detox.
As the warmer weather rolls around we all want to feel and look our best to enjoy the sun and longer days. It’s that time of year again where we fall into the sneaky detox and cleanse traps all promising fast weight loss, limitless energy supplies and perfect skin. So how do we achieve this while avoiding drinking liters of detox teas and juices, cups of lemon water and shots of apple cider vinegar in between mouthfuls of kale and spinach?
The general idea behind ‘detoxes’ is to remove specific foods or food groups temporarily from our diet or add certain foods and supplements into our diet. The aim is to eliminate any toxins that have built up in our bodies from factors such as diet, lifestyle and environment, with the end goal to feel healthier, more energetic and lose weight.
Good news, generally crash diets and detoxes don’t work. In fact, they can cause more harm than good. A lot of plans and diets have been written without scientific backing. With a lot of us becoming drawn in by the attractive, quick and easy promises. The truth is our bodies are actually designed to clear and cleanse itself of toxins, chemicals or unwanted substances. Our liver, kidney, lungs and gastrointestinal tract are designed to work together to prevent accumulation of junk build up in our system.
Want that healthy, bright glow all year round? How about waking up bouncing with energy? If we fuel and look after our bodies and organs right, it can do a pretty good job of detoxing on their own. Reducing or removing highly processed foods, refined sugars, saturated fats and alcohol while increasing the amount of plant-based foods and water while incorporating a regular exercise routine will allow your body to function optimally and leave you feeling your best.
In today’s age it can be tempting to reach for easy, quick packaged food options and skip that gym session at the end of a long day. However, with everyday lives becoming more busy and damaging its ever more important to look after our nutrition and bodies to get through the day. We’re not perfect, some days we can make poor choices leaving us guilty and feeling less than normal. A simple, healthy diet and lifestyle routine is more sustainable and effective long term without having to go through strict elimination diets and detoxes. However, sometimes it can be handy to have a little extra help to get back on track and help restore balance in your body.
