Detoxing is IN. Yall would agree right?
What is a detox? Detoxing is cleansing the body of wastes and toxins.
Do you need to detox? That’s the million dollar question. I’ve seen research to support both sides of the argument on whether a detox is necessary. My response, well-no. Your body has natural detoxifying organs. The biggest and more important is the liver.Your liver is actually the biggest organ in your body and without this thing you wouldn’t be able to survive. (other organs that detox: colon & kidneys)
Well if it’s not really necessary why do people detox? Because it’s in! Duh! Everybody is doing it and everybody is doing a different type of detox. More importantly these people who are doing it, whether it be your friends, family, coworkers & even celebrities, are yielding results… AND QUICKLY!
Personally, I’m neutral on this debate. If you detox great. If you don’t great. If you know what you’re doing when you do detox and you are still nutritionally balanced then yea sure why not. But don’t just do a detox, then pass out mid day on day 3. #NO.
Currently, I guess you could say I’m doing a detox. This is out of the January/February Whole Living Magazine. Theirs is 3 weeks long, it provides breakfasts/lunches/dinners/snacks + more (it’s really a great detox), but I’m not doing all that. I’m taking a few meals and adding them into my life while removing
- Simple carbs (bagels, thin bread, waffles, vanilla almond cold cereal, pasta, rice etc)
- Dairy (yogurt/ice cream/ cheese)
- Sweets (snickers, lollipops, hot chocolate, juice etc)
