Do you have a permanent feeling of saturation? Do you feel heavy and your stomach has grown considerably? Then is time to resort to a detox cure to eliminate toxins from the body. More energy, glowing skin, and a flat stomach are just some of the benefits of this diet.
Once in a while, it’s good to deprive our bodies of alcohol, caffeine, nicotine, food additives, preservatives and colorants contained by precooked products. Vitality loss, cellulite, loaded skin, bloating, headaches, chronic fatigue, stress are, in most cases, signs of a wrong diet with a high content of synthetic substances.
Moreover, experts recommend detoxification cure in the treatment of several diseases, not only to combat bloating and stress. But if you are under any treatment or suffer from any illness, consult your doctor before starting such a cure.
Liquids and fruits are the base
The best time for such a cure is the weekend when you presumably have fewer worries and problems to solve. It is imperative, in this period, to smoke less and reduce coffee and alcohol. Otherwise, the positive effects will not be that obvious.
The first thing you have to do after you wake up is to drink a large glass of water, in which you have squeezed the juice of a middle-sized lemon. Then, every hour, drink a glass of water.
At breakfast, lunch and dinner, eat fruit salad with apples and oranges- and possibly other fruits, depending on the season. Also drink herbal teas after every meal.
The second day
Follow the same regime as in the first day, but this time you can add in your fruit salad, at breakfast and lunch, sesame seeds and sunflower seeds.
In the evening, eat light: grilled chicken with green vegetables, boiled or fried without oil.
The third day
A method of eliminating toxins, popular among beautiful Hollywood women, is drinking only fruit juice and/or vegetable for 24 or 48 hours.
Don’t eat anything in the third day, just drink natural juices. And don’t forget about the lemon water in the morning.
Pectin, an organic compound contained by these natural juices, helps cleanse the digestive tract. The most effective are the juices prepared from oranges, apples, grapefruit, and lemons. Among vegetables, the best are those with green leaves like celery, beets or spinach, because they contain lots of chlorophyll. The only condition is to consume these beverages within 24 hours of their preparation, because they lose nutritional value quite quickly.
