detoxification diets

You may not be feeling quite right, but you can’t seem to find a good reason as to why this is. You might have even gone to the doctor only to realize that there is nothing medically wrong with you. You might just have a build up of toxins in your system, and few weeks of eating better might be just what you need. There are many things that can contribute to these problems, and many of them are out of your control. You can control what you eat though, and that is when detoxification diets come into play.

How well these detoxification diets work for you will depend on how well you follow them. I have a friend who does this once a year, and she swears that she always feels better when she is done. Though there are many different detoxification diets you can follow, she always comes up with her own. She cuts out all sugars and all fats. She eats nothing but fruits and vegetables for two weeks, and drinks nothing but water. She works out and does meditation as much as possible. She says it works wonders, but it hard to stay on for any longer than that.

You can probably find some good detoxification diets online, and they may or may not be like the one my friend uses. You have to look through the diet and be realistic when you read. You will know if something might help you clean out your system, or if it might end up being dangerous. You are going into dangerous territory if you think you can live on nothing but water for a week. Anyone should know that, but there are some who try it. If you aren’t sure about something you read, talk to a medical professional about it.

Remember that detoxification diets should only last a week or two. Anything longer and you run the risk of damage to your system. If you choose something that might be dangerous, you are going to feel horrible rather than feeling better. These do take some dedication, and if you can’t seem to eat right day in and day out, you might have huge problems when attempting one of them. If you can get through a good one though, you may find that you feel better than ever. You may have not given much thought to what toxins can do, but once you free yourself from them, you’ll want to keep it up.
