Feeling a little sluggish after the holidays? Then perhaps it’s time to clean up and detoxify your diet. Detoxification of a meal plan is really about taking a break from certain foods and cleaning the body from the inside out. By removing or eliminating toxins in your diet you can start fueling your body with healthy nutrients that can protect you from disease and restore your natural ability to maintain optimal health and wellbeing.
Our bodies were not meant to absorb the large quantities of additives, chemicals and toxins that we are exposed to on a consistent basis. Therefore, by taking a set period of time to consume only fresh natural foods we can remind ourselves, and our digestive system, how good it feels to obtain all our vital nutrients through whole foods. During a detox or cleansing program try to base your food choices on real foods such as: fresh vegetables, fruits, nuts, seeds, lean proteins especially fish and most importantly drink plenty of water.
Before starting any new meal plan or exercise routine it’s wise to consult your doctor or medical professional. Many people find that detoxing their diet can be easy and delicious. There’re many different guidelines and programs to follow when you are looking for the right plan for yourself so be sure to work with a medical professional to find the plan to works best for you.
