You’ve heard about it, you’ve thought about it, maybe you’ve even done it! We thought we would look into exactly how successful it is…detoxing!

There’s a few different ways to detox, no food, clean foods, detoxing teas and other drinks, shakes… we think there is a healthy and a non healthy way to cleanse  your system!

No food- well that is NEVER a good idea! Whilst you may think it’s working and it will shrink your stomach size, your body will be so confused with how it is meant to get nutrients, it will capture any little bit of food and drink eaten before or after your detox and immediately store it as fat in desperation for something to store! Not to mention you will feel extremely lethargic and unwell.  When you eventually come off your no food detox- chances are you will put any weight you lost back on again! All in all, never a good idea!

Substituting shakes for meals… there is mixed responses to this, but we say to try and avoid this too. The nutrients and sustenance we get from food is vital for our health and wellbeing, whilst these nutrients can be within the shakes, the best source is straight from the natural food source.

Now eating clean foods, that is what we recommend! By cutting fast foods, foods high in fat, sugar and salt and your portion size you will look and feel 100% better. Having a clean diet with a variety of fruits, vegetables, protein, fibre and other nutrient rich foods will help you become the best version of yourself! You can easily lose those few extra kgs you want to shed, achieve that toned body you’ve always wanted and help you to not feel bloated. Not to mention, there’s so much you can do with it and experiment with! A glass of water with lemon or a herbal tea is a great idea when you wake up of a morning, for a cleansing start to the day!
