What is Detox?
Detoxing can do more than make your eyes sparkle and your skin low–it can boost energy levels, improve digestion and help shift a few unwanted kilos too.
While it may look like a fad diet–nograins, noalcohol, nomilk, nosugar (andnofun)–a detox is far from aquick fix for weight loss.
The purpose of any detox plan is to take the load off the organs that detoxify the body–the liver, kidneys and bowel–while at the same time supporting and improving their performance.
If you want to fast track your health, you’re your body abreak, or just want to detox diet for a short time, follow this safe and do-ableseven-dayprogram.
What to do
Check your diary and mark a week where you have a clean break from functions or events that might derail your detox, such as weddings, birthdays or special occasion meals. Some people may experience a 'cleansing' reaction in the first few days of detox, including headaches or loose bowel movements. This is due to the sudden withdrawal of certain foods, in addition to stimulation of detoxifying organs. These symptoms should subside in 24 to 48 hours.
