Detoxing is a great way to speed up your metabolism and refresh your body and mind. Here are some of the best ways to detox your body.
Eat anti-inflammatory – Whole foods like vegetables, fruit, beans, nuts, seeds, whole grains, lean and protein will help your body heal and reduce inflammation. Look at cutting out processed foods, sugar and refined oils, that causes inflammation and fluctuations in your body’s hormone levels.
Drink more of the right stuff – Alcohol, caffeinated beverages, sugary sodas and packaged juices will cause your body and organs to work overtime, causing tiredness, confusion, and inflammation. Look at drinking water with lime or lemon juice to flush toxins out of your system. If you are looking for a caffeine hit, opt for a green tea or a black tea that delivers half the jolt of caffeine as coffee or caffeinated drinks.
Get moving and get good sleep – Sweating is the bodies way of improving circulation and eliminating toxins. Consider adding 10 minutes of exercise a day and slowly increase it to 30 minutes a day for at least five days a week. Detox your body even further by clocking in at least 8 to 9 hours of sleep at night.
Eat smaller portions and eat it slowly – Big meals cause bloating and are difficult for your body to process. Look at consuming your meals slowly and make sure you are eating your meals in a quiet setting without your phone or your laptop in front of you.
