Body Cleanse and Detox
Cleanse your Body through Detox
Detoxing your body will boost your energy levels, improve digestion and help remove a few unwanted kilos too. This is not a fad diet nor is it a quick fix for weight loss, but it is IMPORTANT for your body to get in peak condition.
When you flush these toxins out of your body you’ll automatically start to lose weight.
The purpose of a detox plan is to take the load off the organs that detoxify the body - the liver, kidneys and bowel - which will help support and improve their functioning. It will help you accelerate your good health, give your body and organs a well needed break.
Here is a seven day eating plan aimed to restart, refresh and recharge your system, see more at tashinahill.com.
Foods to eat
These are the foods that can be eaten:
Vegetables, beans, legumes, fruit, fish, tofu, sweet potatoes, brown rice, nuts. The best nuts for detox are raw almonds and cashews. Whenever you feel like a snack, just have a piece of fruit or a handful of raw nuts.
There are ways to make these foods tastier if you would prefer.
This is an example of a meal that tastes delicious and is still good for the body detox.
Simply roast or microwave a sweet potato and fill it with sautéed onion, some vegetables and avocado. Then just add cayenne or black pepper and a squeeze of lemon.
Ginger is also a good tast enhancer. It also has a cleansing effect on the body. Also, cumin aids digestion, which is important to any detox strategy.
Have a Detox Drink
There is a detox drink which is a great cleanser. This should be taken morning, noon and night. Here it is:
- Pure water (8 oz.)
- Unfiltered apple juice (2 oz.)
- One tablespoon bentonite clay
- One teaspoon psyllium powder
Add Bentonite to water or juice, then add psyllium, shake well, and drink immediately.
Betonite Clay is a common ingredient in detoxing. It has an alkalizing effect on the body and when taken correctly, it can get rid of toxins and help balance gut bacteria.
The foods to avoid
This list includes all meat products, dairy, coffee, alcohol, wheat, and, unfortunately, condiments. Ketchup!
There are always spices such as I mentioned above cumin and ginger to add flavor so it makes the detox diet much tastier.
Replace butter or margarine with tahini. This is made from sesame seeds and is packed with powerful phytonutrients, essential vitamins and minerals. It is also cold pressed so it only contains healthy fats.
You see, after your body has been through the detoxing process, it naturally want’s to stay that way. This will make it easier to avoid the things that are bad for you. Instead of consuming toxic substances, you’re body will be craving healthy foods.
After the seven days you will be detoxed and have a lot more energy. At which time, continue with your normal diet but focus on avoiding junk food full of bad oils and sugar.
