There is quite a long food list on what to take if you want to detoxify your body. But there is a real struggle when you don’t know what not to take while on detox. Well, there is good news. You don’t have to totally deprive yourself from these yummy foods. You just have to have a healthy replacement. A food substitution strategy.
As a society today, we are stuffing our bodies full of inflammatory food-like products that is prone to make a person sick, fat and depressed. The key to fat loss, optimal health and joy is so simple: eat whole foods that are plucked from the earth. Foods that do not come in a package, can, bag or jar, and automatically the inflammation will dissipate in your body, freeing up space for your liver to begin processing fat. The best part, you can eat all you want, as long as it’s clean whole foods.
Here are top 6 foods to detox from. Again, you don’t have to take them all away from your regular eating habits– just try substituting them with healthy ones.
1. Processed Sugar
Processed sugar, referred to scientifically as “sucrose”, is not only totally devoid of nutrients, but has added chemicals and raises blood sugar levels faster so you get energy/hunger swings. Think white table sugar, sugar in candy bars, or added sugar in fruit drinks.
Try replacing your processed sugars for raw honey, organic maple syrup, liquid stevia or fruit.
