January is a great time to make a change to lifestyle. Instead of trying to detox, simply try "No-Tox" giving your body fewer toxins to deal with e.g. having a regular meals daily, a balanced mix of protein with fruit and vegetables, good fat intake and minimising or eliminating excess carbohydrates and sugar.
1. Reduce toxins by minimising the daily intake of processed foods, sugar, caffeinated drinks and alcohol. Eat regular meals with plenty of vegetables and moderate fruits as well as raw seeds, nuts and oily fish. They contain powerful antioxidants which will support the natural detocification processes.
2. Give up smoking! Tobacco smoke contains 7000 chemicals! The tar sticks to clothes, skin and insides the lungs. Cigarette smoking depletes many nutrients, including Vitamin C, which helps protect and repair you cells in your body.
3. Keep hydrated with plenty of fluids e.g water or herbal tea! Avoid fruit juice due to their hidden sugar content that may spike up your blood sugar levels! Get a blender to make a smoothie as this retains the vegetables and fruit fibre as well as the key nutrients.
4. Supplement yourself with Skin Vitality 2 or Pro-Vitality Formula to help your body detoxifying process. These conveniently blister strips containing a broad spectrum multi-vitamins, powerful antioxidants, omega 3 & 6 fatty acids for radiant skin and healthy hair as well as helping support healthy heart, muscles, bones and energy levels.
5. Keep moving! Aim for 150 minutes of moderate aerobic activity e.g. cyling.brisk walking every as well as strength exercises on two/more days a week. These will work all the major muscles. Sweating is a natural way of eliminating toxins from the body.
6. Sleep! It is important to ensure that you have 7 to 9 hours sleep per day. Sleep is one of the most important factors for successful ageing as well as healing and repair of your heart and blood vessels so its important that you get enough!
The dangers of detox diet can lead to muscle loss, fatigue and irritability. A change to a healthy diet with some exercise will help reduce the development of bowel disease, heart disease, diabetes and strokes.
