ibelong2me saidWhat are some good methods for detox (and not the Lindsey jokes)? Seriously, trying to cleanse myself of all the sups and start over on a clean slate so they have a better effect.
Is it a good or bad idea?
Any trials & errors?
It depends what your goals are. I've always been a bit skeptical because you are basically depriving your body of nourishment so you should be in good health, possibly get advice from your doctor and make sure it's the right 'detox' for you. Although the term to detox is a bit of a marketing tool, there are some good reasons to stop putting additional toxins into your system. So with this in mind, it's not a bad idea to go on a 'detox' or whatever you want to call it but again, you should be in good health. You can also lose those last few stubborn pounds and maintain it as long at you were already a healthy eater, however you will gain the weight back if you go back to 'bad' eating habits.
I've done two detoxes specifically to 'reset' my body and get rid of certain 'bad' habits (caffeine, processed carbs, etc) It's funny you put this post up because I'm actually on one all this week. It's a variation of the "master cleanse", however I'm including 3 protein drinks a day for nourishment as well as the lemon aide concoction drink that you do with the master cleanse, tons of water and I'm also drinking one kombucha a day.
So bottom line, you will encounter critics when it comes to detox programs but do some research yourself and see if it's good for you but do keep in mind the term 'detox' is more a marketing tool because your liver does the detoxing. Lemon juice actually does aid the liver in the detoxification process though. If you embark on something like this make sure you have a specific purpose and goals...i.e. stop processed carbs, caffeine, alcohol, etc; Good luck!
