Detox, short for detoxification, is the body's natural,

ongoing process of neutralizing or eliminating toxins from the body.

Toxins are chemically changed into less harmful compounds and flushed out of the body through stools or urine.

Detox diet is the method of taking in certain food and drinks with the end purpose

of getting rid of toxins from the body for finest health.

In short, it is a diet which detoxifies the body.

Detox diets may vary in forms and the substances to ingest.

In most of the cases, the food selections are very strict.

On the other hand, some are more lenient but then certain drugs are prescribed to assist in the detoxification.

Detoxification is good for the body if done properly and with professional guidance.

It is highly recommended that a person who wishes to undertake detox diet

must first consult a physician or dietician.

This is because detoxification may be harmful to the body if not conducted properly.

Sometimes the misuse of a detox diet may produce certain diseases or even malnutrition.

But with the proper guidance, detox diet can make a body healthier and stronger.

When a body is detoxified, the toxins are removed from the body through the urine or the stools.

When there are less toxins in the body, blood circulation gets better,

respiration is stronger, stamina is improved, stress is decreased, and the person himself will feel better.

But the most popular reason why people go for a detox diet is that it is the quickest and safest way to lose weight.

Most detox diets comprise of only fruits, vegetables, and water.

Since this sort of diet is very strict, meat, dairy, alcohol, and bread are big no-nos.

This allows the body to absorb less calories and carbohydrates.

Detoxification also produces the effect of lessening harmful substances in the body like fat and cholesterol.

However, since a deox diet is very strict, it is highly advisable that it only be used for a short period of time.

Detox diets are regularly short-term only

and this sort of diet is not recommended to be done for a long period of time because

it may be a cause of malnutrition.

A detox diet is usually low in protein and carbohydrates.

Without these, muscle growth and energy is easily diminished.

So, detox diets must only be used for a short-term basis.

After following a detox diet many people report having ‘more energy and losing weight quickly’

and given that the diet is so restrictive, it is hardly surprising that you will have lost a few pounds.

However, detoxing is not a weight management solution.

Following the detox program will not teach you anything about basic weight management strategies

such as portion control or a healthy meal pattern.

As a result most people gain weight again and feel just as sluggish as usual

once they stop the diet and return to their old eating habits.

The real reason that detox diets work in the short-term is because

people make a special effort to change their eating habits for a few days.

It stands to reason that if you swap chips and fizzy drinks for fruit and water you will loose weight.

Also, if you’re not eating lots of high fat meals,

which slow your body down as it tries to digest them, you will have more energy.
