Trendy liquid diets and juice cleanses may promise to deliver quick results, but some of these regimens are more dangerous than you think. As Life Science stated, one popular regimen is typically supposed to last anywhere from three days to four weeks, and consists of only drinking a special concoction made of water, lemon juice and cayenne pepper. There are multiple problems with this. For starters, you're not giving your body the vital vitamins, proteins and calories you need to thrive healthfully. Because of this, you're causing mental and physical harm to your body.
On the other hand, a juice cleanse based on fresh vegetable juices and raw juice powders can be a great way to jump start your cleansing. However, if you go back to your old way of eating you are going to undo your cleansing efforts in a hurry.
Cleansing your system of harmful toxins should be more about taking care of your body, not just losing weight in a way that could be more damaging than those existing toxins. By following a healthful, plant-based diet, you can rid your system of poisons you consumed and start on a fresh, clean slate. Here are a few ways to cleanse your body, our way:
1. Avoid Toxic Foods
Eating unhealthy, refined sugars and processed foods does a number on the body. Not only does it lead to weight gain, but it also causes an increased risk of tooth decay, high blood pressure, diabetes, heart disease, stroke, depression, stress and even certain cancers. By eliminating toxic foods from your diet, such as sugary snacks, fast foods and decadent desserts, you can jump-start the cleansing process and prepare your body for nutritional, natural sustenance.
2. Ingest Fiber-Rich Foods
Converting to a primarily raw, plant-based diet is a simple way to detoxify the body, mostly due to the abundance of fiber-rich foods you'll consume. Fiber cleanses the system and promotes better digestion, lowers cholesterol levels, maintains blood sugar levels and enables weight loss and management. According to Dr. Mercola, it also reduces disease risk and improves the quality of your skin - which seem like positive alternative side effects in comparison to those of a fad diet. To cleanse your system properly, we suggest consuming an abundance of root vegetables, green beans, berries, almonds, cauliflower, beans and chia seeds.
3. Try a Vegetable Juice Cleanse
Drinking just juice for three days can jump start the cleansing process. Most people will need at least 2 quarts of juice per day to maintain energy levels during this cleanse. Including some carrot juice or some fruit juice along with the green vegetables will give you energy to keep going. Hallelujah Diet Fiber Cleanse can be used once a day as well for deeper cleansing during this time. Can't do it for 3 days? Consider doing vegetable juice for 24 hours. You will derive benefits even from this short cleansing and you can do it more frequently, even weekly for maintaining your health.
4. Consider Some of Our Helpful Supplements
Beyond following a fiber-rich diet that's free of unhealthy refined sugars and processed foods, and occasional juice cleanses, you can enhance the process with some of our supplements.
