Post-Easter Detox Tips
Overindulged over the long weekend? Incorporate these 5 Detox tips into your daily routine and you’ll be feeling hundreds in no time! A seasonal detox is an effective way to clear your body of toxins, which will also speed up your metabolism and enhance your overall health.
Eat less sugar: Start by decreasing the amount of sugar you consume, which includes granulated sugars, molasses and artificial sweeteners.
Hydrate: Drink 2-3 litres of water a day and jazz it up with some lemon. Lemon helps re-hydrate the system and promotes digestion, which will help the flow of waste out of your body.
Sweat: Regular exercise encourages circulation in the blood and lymph system, which will in turn also enhance digestion, reduce tension, lubricate joints, and strengthen your body. It’s a proven fact – people who exercise regularly have far fewer total toxins in their systems.
Drink herbal tea: Not only is tea full of antioxidants, it hydrates you and fills you up. This means you will be less likely to overeat or eat the wrong things. Keep in mind, the caffeine in tea is different than the caffeine in coffee—it’s gentler on your system. It’ll also give you a pick-me-up minus the jitters.
Eat right: Incorporate raw whole plant foods into your diet because processed foods lack the nutrients your body needs. Dark green vegetables, for instance, are full of micronutrients and are very low in calories, so don’t hold back!
