Who wouldn’t want to detoxify without starving yourself to death?
It’s a good thing that we fully detox our system at least even once in a month to reboot our body and make it as clean and as health as possible. Yet detoxing isn’t that easy since you’ll have to intake certain foods or liquids for you to have a clean system. You’ll be different forms of mixed drinks and shake that are not that delicious! And you’ll also intake leafy and green foods that if you aren’t used to its taste, you’ll certainly puke! But did you know that there are ways to detoxify without dieting or doing such ridiculous diets? All you have to do is to try these steps!
We’ve all been there with daily bad habits, at some point. Whether it’s continuously indulging in the third large cup of coffee, just one more slice of pizza, or too much beer at Tuesday’s happy hour, the result is the same: You feel like crap, afterward. But there’s good news—you can detox your system to get back on track with your fitness goals. And you don’t have to starve yourself on an extreme liquid cleanse diet to do it.
Not everyone has a tough time digesting dairy products, but there is a huge amount of the population who suffer from lactose intolerance without realizing it. Aside from creating unpleasant bathroom issues, it can also get in the way of detoxing. “Dairy tends to build up mucus and slow down liver function,” says Dr. Bravin. For some people, like New York Times food writer Mark Bittman, eliminating dairy is paramount to a miracle. Recently, he wrote about giving it up after a doctor suggested he “take a vacation from certain foods.” Just 24 hours later the discomfort that he’d felt for a lifetime had virtually disappeared.
TAKE A BREAK FROM CAFFEINE
Dr. Mark Hyman, author of the best-selling anti-diabetes manifesto The Blood Sugar Solution, writes about the lure of caffeine extensively on his website, linking it to liver troubles. “Ingredients in coffee can interfere with normal drug metabolism and detoxification in the liver making it difficult to regulate the normal detoxification process in the liver,” he writes. If giving up your morning Joe is unfathomable, try Dandy Blend, a drink made from chicory and dandelion, which many in the health industry believe tastes very similar to—or even better—than coffee.
