Spring Absolutions

Doing a detox in Spring is a great way to kick start yourself.  When we detox and have a break from our usual over indulgent food and drink we can release toxins and fat.  Toxins according to some nutritionists make us fat, therefore anyone that eats and drinks too much alcohol, fizzy drinks or sugary and processed food will struggle to keep their weight off.  And who doesn’t over indulge during the social winter festive months?  Toxins are stored in fat cells, so they encourage your body to cling on to fat.  A regular diet will help you to lose weight but when we take it a step further and follow a short term detox programme then we can also target toxins as well as fat, which long term makes us feel great from the inside out.  Our skin glows, we feel lighter and can even sleep better.  It’s always good to kill two birds with one stone!  That’s why following a detox program can work if you are motivated to take a break from the C.R.A.P.

Following a good detox program will require you to take a break from:

  • Carbs
  • Refined sugar
  • Alcohol
  • Processed foods

That’s the C.R.A.P.  And that is what we need to temporarily eliminate (or eliminate for good if you wish).  It is about following a clean eating plan – unprocessed and fresh.  Some people view a detox as starvation or even worse a fast!  A good detox program is about getting you to eat sensible healthy meals whilst following supplements – if any.  It is about having a few days during the program of deep cleanse days by limiting your food intake to a minimum so that your body can go in to its own natural detoxification. It takes 48 hours for our bodies to do this and start cleansing the liver naturally.  Therefore, a good detox program is not starvation or a fast instead it can be easy and fun whilst eating real food and supporting your body’s natural detoxification.  When I work with clients I ask them to eat their favourite healthy meals during shake days as well as drink a nutritionally dense protein shake morning and evening that is full of vitamins, minerals and amino acids.  Having that one main meal doesn’t deprive you and helps you to start putting healthy back on your plate whilst releasing toxins and fat build up.

A detox is not about calorie counting; it’s about upping your healthy food intake and saying goodbye to the fatty and sugary processed foods and drinks we self-sabotage ourselves with.
