Choosing the Right Juice Cleansers in Your Detox Diet
One of the most common types of detox diets is the whole body cleanse that relies on juices as a detoxing agent. This type of diet includes a wide variety of fruits and vegetables that have been juiced for maximum health benefits, although some diets also include protein sources such as fresh, organic eggs or other unprocessed foods. Beginning your spring cleaning with a detox diet will allow you to feel your best for the season to come.
What is a Cleansing Diet?
Detoxification diets are those that remove toxins like heavy metals and food additives from your body. Most people are guilty of having the occasional fast food sandwich or eating processed foods from the frozen section when they are in a rush. Whole foods, like fresh fruits and vegetables, remove the chemicals that build up in your body as a result of eating processed foods, meats, and drinking alcohol. You may need to begin by gradually changing your diet to eliminate things like alcohol and red meat to see the greatest benefits from a whole body cleanse.
A juice based detox diet is preferable over a fast because juices provide you with the nutrients needed to be healthy when the right ingredients are used. For example, the fiber in apples aids in the process of cleansing the body and also provides your body with necessary energy. The types of diets available today vary from two days up to three weeks. You will need to evaluate the different options available to find the cleansing program that is right for your personal needs.
Recipes and Following Your Cleanse
Traditionally, water only was used during a period of fasting to flush the body. Juice cleansers are as effective as water based fasts, but aren’t as harsh as a traditional fast. You will want to choose a diet that includes a transition period both before and after the cleanse officially begins. For example, adding foods such as lean meats back into the diet should be done slowly to ensure the cleansing process is as gentle as possible. If you have questions about following the diet, look for answers on the social networking pages of the book or its author. Information about the foods to eat, and when to eat them, are an important part of cleansing your body.
If you don’t want to follow a liquid diet, you can choose cleanses that include whole foods, such as avocado, celery and squash. You will want to avoid processed foods, meat, alcohol, and drinks containing caffeine during your cleanse. With obesity rates skyrocketing and processed foods becoming a big part of the diet, all-natural juice cleanses can help you reach your fitness goals by preparing you for a change to a healthier diet. Look for a diet that you can use to fit your personal health goals and current fitness levels. With the wide range of detoxification diets available today, the right option simply requires a little research to find. Within just a few short days, you will feel your best and be able to transition to a healthier eating style with juice cleansers.
