10 Ways to Detoxify Your Body

May, 2019

The first thought that would come to your mind would be “Why do I need to go for a detox?” Sedentary lifestyle, unhealthy food habits, irregular sleep cycles and extreme work stress tends to create havoc inside your bodies. These toxins make you feel like crap and hence it is imperative to go on a detox to boost your metabolism and flush out all the toxins so as to rejuvenate your body and make you feel better. Most of you think that a detox means starving yourselves and having fancy “weight cutting” drinks. If you are one of them, then you’re in for a surprise as we take you through a series of 10 simple ways in which you can rejuvenate your body!

1. AVOID SUGAR AND PROCESSED FOODS

The first step in detoxifying your body includes getting rid of sugar and processed food like bread, sandwiches, ready to eat meals, cakes, cookies and fast food. Refrain from adding sugar to your drinks and don’t give into your cravings for aerated drinks as they have the highest sugar content! (Don’t fall for the sugar free claim – it’s a scam!!)

2. RELY ON FRESH PRODUCE

Start your day with a bowl of fresh fruits followed by a vegetable soup for lunch and a light Indian curry for dinner. It will make you feel fresh and light. The key is to eat local ingredients and not low-calorie!

3. HYDRATION IS THE KEY

Gulp down fluids throughout the day such as green tea, fruit juices, vegetable juices, coconut water, lemon and mint water and a glass of buttermilk etc. Make sure you stay away from packaged juices and flavoured water as they are packed with sugar and preservatives.

4. PROBIOTICS HELP
