How to Detox

The Telegraph advises on How to Detox, below is a quick summary:

Look Before You Leap – Keep an honest food diary for two weeks beforehand. Noting what you eat and how you feel afterwards – tired, bloated, still hungry or craving sugar half an hour later.

Spread it Out – A hard-core, no-food weekend will do you no good – gradual, natural detox over four weeks is far more effective.

Cut Out the Culprits – Cut out processed foods, refined sugars and artificial sweeteners. Try eliminating wheat for the four weeks, too.

Balance Your Food Groups – Incorporate carbohydrate, protein and fat into every meal. Aim for equal proportions of complex carbohydrates and lean protein. A probiotic, such as Biocare, to nourish your system.

Don’t Fear Fat – Fat does not make you fat and is vital. Try swapping cooking fats for coconut oil – one of the purest fats.

Opt for Organic – Pesticides and chemicals have to be broken down by your liver, so choose organic.
Organic is more expensive but processed foods contain less nutrients anyway.

Skin Deep – Use natural skincare products; I love the Living Nature range, which is made with manuka honey. Dry body-brush to shift dead skin cells, clear pores and boost circulation.
