If you are determined to follow a detox diet, it is important to follow certain rules. Of course, such diets are characterized as extreme and therefore it is reasonable not to last them for a long time. The duration of a detox lasts from a few days to a week so that its effects are visible, without overwhelming the body. So, look at what the golden rules of detoxification are and how to follow such a diet.
First, of course you should not follow such a diet because it is fashionable. There are many alternative diets that are popular and will benefit you in the long run. If you still want to follow this type of diet, do it. Keep your identity and do not succumb to the tricks of transitional fashion.
Then, you have to pay attention to the type of detox you choose. For some, detoxification means avoiding drinking coffee and alcohol. For others, it means staying away from any solid food. Realize your own needs and desires first before embarking on a detox diet.
During the detox diet, any form of exercise is prohibited. Although exercise is an important part of daily life and should be included in any diet plan, it can be exhausting in combination with detox. Due to the reduction in food intake, you will not have the energy required to exercise. In order not to push yourself to the extremes, it is advisable to rest and refrain from any tiring energy. You can make up for lost time as soon as your detox is over.
Don’t follow such a diet with your only desire to lose weight. Very often, such diets can help us lose weight temporarily. However, once we return to our previous eating habits, we put back the pounds we lost and probably a little extra. The detoxification diet is meant to detoxify, as its name implies. But it is not a model of long-term healthy eating.
Finally, we need to draw attention to those who wish to start from scratch in their lives by somehow pressing the ‘restart’ button through a detox diet. If you want something like this, start taking care of yourself and offering what you really need. Start a form of exercise and adjust your diet according to the rules of healthy eating. Avoid artificial substances, preservatives, over-processed foods and high-chemical foods.
Instead, prefer the gifts of nature and make sure you spend enough time on yourself.
Detoxification diets have been around for decades. Now that more and more people are becoming more aware of nutrition and healthy living. However, such diets are not the right solution in the long run for the problems you may be facing.
Our lives are holistically changed when we take the situation on our own and take care of ourselves, just as it deserves. So, come closer to nature, without succumbing to extreme dietary choices and without the hassle. This is a journey that will last a lifetime, not a set of jerky, extreme movements. The choice is yours!
