A detox diet is the ideal way to get any diet underway. During this one to two week phase you are going to remove and eliminate all harmful toxins from your body, and you are going to cut out all processed foods. There are many types of detox diet options for you to follow. From an all liquid diet, to one that cuts out meats, processed foods and sugars, and only allows you to eat whole fruits and veggies. There are different options for you to look in to when trying to prepare the body for a diet you will be following longer term.
When following a detox diet, it has to be one that provides you with sufficient nutrients the body needs to survive. You are going to get this from protein rich and nutrient rich veggies and certain fruits that are included in these diet plans. The body is going to be cleaned out as these foods are going to help you flush out the system. Including dark green veggies (broccoli, kale, spinach, and starchy vegetables) are great for a detox plan. You also want to include fruits that are high in protein, like apples, as part of the detox cleanse you complete.
Depending on the goals you have set, and what you want to do, there are different options for you to choose from when you decide to do a detox diet before you actually go on a weight loss diet and regime. This short transition period is a great way to prepare the body, to remove toxins and get rid of harmful chemicals, and to bring the body to a balanced stage, which will help you follow a healthier eating and lifestyle. Once you do complete the diet, for a set time period, and eliminating foods your body should not be consuming, you will notice a clear cut difference in the way you feel.
