For the past two weeks I have been on a detox, a diet specifically designed for the body to remove all its toxins and waste and as a result rejuvenate and allow it to function better. Which means no processed food, no sugars or high fat, no complex carbs, and no caffiene ( which explains my absence from my blog!! I fell asleep so easy! )
The foods that you can have are all sorts of fruits and vegetables, organic yoghurt and cheese( in the strictest versions even the milk and dairy is not allowed) herbal teas and large doses of antioxidents such as strawberries, blueberries, garlic, ginger, citrus, green leafy vegetables etc.
Looking at these pictures make me want to go back to the diet again!
Detox is not easy! Well at least that is what I realised. It requires alot of planning and cooking because your meals are different from those of the rest of the family. In most cases people fumble when it comes down to plannings of the meals. i think I scored a ten this time around in my meal plannings, coz they turned out to be delicious, ontime and had a wonderful effect on me. Whatever the procedures they are worth the effort and work.
The obvious benefits that you will reap at the end of the detox are:
1. Glowing skin
2. skip in your feet.
3. lustrous hair.
5. recovered from indigestion or piles or any other mild dietary condition.
6. better immune system
7. better and more sound sleep
Not only you will recieve compliments from people around you, you will feel the difference yourself. However, it does'nt come easy. At the onset of your detox program you may feel certain unpleasant symptoms such as:
1. light headedness
4. dampened spirits
5. in extreme cases nausea
These symptoms normally occur due to the sudden absence of caffiene from our diet or other complex carbs and high energy sugars and fats. You can make the transition easier by starting to prep for the diet by cutting down on the caffiene and other complex foods so as to get your body accustomed to the new regime you are going to adopt.
Tomorrow I will be posting the two week detox diet plan and than I will be sharing with you guys some more tips and techniques to deepen the detox and make it more effective!
