Top Detox Tips

I am going to be honest from the outset, I do not like the term “detox”. When people think of nutrition (which is my thing) and detox at the same time then all sorts of horribly unhealthy ideas spring to mind: cabbage soup diet, juice diet, baby food diet, raw food diet and similar non-sustainable nonsense diets. I am not a fan of people adopting rash, short term nutritional strategies as they attempt to use “detox” as a sticking plaster to cure a bad diet or a long period of calorie excess. Rather, I would like people to make small changes to their diet plan so that over time they make gradual improvements which are far more sustainable and will pay off long term. Here are some simple tips to help you lose weight.

Something that other forms of excercise just don’t reach: a jog for example.

I’m apathetic, bloated and inefficient.

Detoxis something many of us do after a period of excess, when we feel sluggish in the depths of winter, or to kick start our resolve to eat more healthily. Detox helps to support your body's natural elimination processes and should be a pleasurable and gentle health routine. Usually it involves eating and drinking nothing but organic:

Detoxifying made easy
This time of year is always associated with great intention and personal transformation. Like it or not, most of you will stop being good and slip back into old habits. To prevent this, you need to accept that all change takes time and all change needs a catalyst. Now don’t get me wrong here, you and others do have the will and strength to transform yourself, it is just a whole lot easier once you have both support and guidance. A detoxifying process is a superb catalyst and one that should done at least twice a year. I once ran an F12 Detox weekend and thought it a good idea to go through the process myself at the same time as facilitating the weekend.
