You’ve heard all about detoxing, whether it’s in the form of a pricey juice cleanse, a super restrictive diet, or a tea regimen.
Some people say a detox can help you slim down and get rid of toxins, while others are of the opinion that it’s one of the worst things you can do for your health.
So what’s the truth?
Sorry to burst your bubble but..
The idea of being able to follow a certain eating/drinking plan for a day or a week and rid your body of toxins, all while kick-starting a new, healthier you, may sound appealing.
But it’s actually complete bull. Toxins are real, but you don’t only get them from what you eat!
Your body absorbs toxins from things like pollution, pesticides, additives in your food, and chemicals in your cleaning and beauty products.
Your body is designed with mechanisms to filter toxins out effectively.
You don’t need to do anything to detoxify because your body is constantly doing it for you.
Most important point is to maintain a healthy diet so you don’t feel the need to scramble to lose weight or “get rid of toxins” ASAP.
