Detox diets are very popular and effective. For those who are still in the dark regarding the meaning and benefits of these diet plans, here is a little clarification. Detox diet consists of foods and drinks that you can take to enhance detoxification. Detoxification is the natural process of body cleansing. Detoxification in the body helps to get rid of toxins that cause various illnesses. To detoxify your body means to have a healthy system in the absence of bad bacteria.
There are common foods and drinks that you can consume to increase the rate at which your body detoxifies. Regular consumption of some spicy and heavy foods deteriorates your digestive system, thereby, making detoxification a bit difficult. Detox diets can help to reduce the effects of such foods. There are many detox diet plans to choose from. It all depends on the toxins you wish to flush out. The 3 and 7 day detox diet plan is very common and generally used by people. Going for these diet plans will help to increase your body's natural resistance to illness and at the same time flush out toxins.
The 7 day detox diet plan helps the body to get back in tune and it involves a week long process. The diet menu includes vegetables, fruits, beans, potatoes, tofu, herbs and others. On the first day, you are required to eat a lot of fruits and vegetables. The second and third day, cereals should be included. Drinks like tea or coffee without sugar is also required from day one to four. Then, on the fifth day, foods like macaroni should be eaten until the seventh day. This is just a brief summary of the 7 day plan, it requires more, but its sole aim is to clean your body system.
The 3 - 7 day detox diet plan often includes fruit, juice and soup diets. There are other detox diet plans that focus on various illnesses, such as acne, gallstones and others. You can do a little research to find out which is suitable for you. Pregnant women, children and people with serious medical conditions are advised to refrain from these diet plans.
