What to eat during detox?
So, you've got your mind set on a round of detox. Good, your body will thank you. To make the process easier, we've got some tips about what to eat during your detox.
Toxins enter your body every day through just about everything; bad habits, food, cosmetics and environmental pollution. When the toxins become too numerous, your body gets a little overwhelmed and you start feeling like you're hungover every day.
What you shouldn't eat
During your detox, the number 1 food that you should eliminate from your everyday diet is refined sugar in all its forms (juices, sweets, chocolate bars). Try to avoid animal products as well - save the meat and dairy products for another day.
If you absoluetly can't go without, have some cottage cheese, an egg here and there or some lean chicken. You need to eliminate starches as well, especially white bread, pasta, pastry and pizza.
What you should eat
You should eat foods that have a neutralising effect on your body. These are mostly fresh fruit and vegetables, preferably organically grown. The best picks are citrus fruits, apples, pears, watermelon, berries, dark cherries and dark grapes.
Your go-to veggies should be sweet potatoes, pumpkins, carrots, beets, cabbage, celery, parsley and all dark leafy greens. Garlic, onion and ginger have great cleansing effects as well.
It should go without saying, but have plenty of water.
Dieting often isn't enough
Detox isn't only about a short term dietary change, it's about supporting your organism to get rid of toxins, replenish it with micro-nutrients and return it to a balanced state. To make it really effective, you can try our Cleanse Drink.
