With all the diet fads that has been advertised and repeated over and over since time immemorial, people have yet to learn. “Crash diet” is not the way to do it. People mistake not eating for three consecutive meals, or not eating at all, as a way to lose weight and trim down. It does not work that way. The more you fast, the more hungry you become. And honestly, how long can you go not eating right and without catching some problems along the way? These fad diets would only cause you health problems and a trip to the emergency room of your favorite hospital. Not a very smart move, don’t you think?
Studies have shown that the best, yes, the BEST way to lose weight is through exercising and by having a balanced diet. That seems like a tough job to follow since you love food and you definitely love to eat. However, if you really want to have that “to-die-for” body, you must do your part, and work it well. No one will do it for you, so you better start now. We know that when we eat, we also eliminate the remains of them. And by now, we are aware of our body’s own cleansing system, or the “detox” team, consisting of the liver, the kidneys, the intestines and even the skin. They all work hand-in-hand to filter, cleanse and eliminate waste. By the way, detoxification or simply detox is the process of eliminating or removing waste products.
Conversely, if we are to exercise and when we work hard, we sweat and it makes our heart work more, which boosts the blood flow and supply throughout the entire body. This process will aid your natural detox center to do its job. By exercising, you will also lose some calories and fat. And of course, it will make you feel good and healthy at the same time.
Some people follow a certain healthy detox diet that they say helped them, here are the two of them:
• The Natural Detox Diet: In this diet, you will need to cut out on all your alcohol, tea, coffee, processed foods, sugary drinks, chocolate and fast food. Its primary goal is to first lessen the acid levels in your body, and then release all the toxins from the vital organs and out of the body by the help of the lymphatic system; after which you will re-energize. You will also need to perform light aerobic exercises for at least 25-30 minutes for three to four times a week.
• The Three Week Healthy Eating Diet: In this diet, you will have to eliminate your entire carbohydrates intake in the evening for the first two weeks, and should be followed by meals consisting of protein, fruits and vegetables. For the final week, you could already eat carbohydrates in the evening and in mid-morning. During this diet, you should be able to maintain two liters of water intake each day. However, while on the process of this diet, you may have headaches, increased lethargy and nausea because of the unhealthy toxins that are being released.
During the healthy detox diet, it is also important to perform some exercises to help energize both the circulatory and lymphatic systems that will eliminate the toxins. A simple and light routine exercise would be enough. Doing a healthy detox diet is a personal choice, the results may vary from each person and some may feel comfortable doing it, while others do not. Compared to the fad diets, crash diets and who-knows-whatever-kind-of-diet-there-is, this is relatively safe and much reliable in terms of the detoxification process. If you are unsure, consult your doctor first regarding the healthy detox diets available.
