The 7-Day Detox Diet Plan For Weight Loss

Posted by Be Healthy Be Loved on

If you have unwanted weight, a great place to start is by going through a healthy detox.

It will flush out the toxins out of your system, while still giving you quality fuel including healthy proteins, grains, fruits and vegetables to support your body’s functions and fuel exercise.

The 7-Day Nutritionist-Approved Detox Diet Plan

Below, I am going to go over with you the 7-Day Detox Diet Plan which follows a simple daily routine of healthy foods and beneficial supplements, allowing your body's natural detox capabilities to eliminate toxins and promote weight loss. 

How do you go through a proper detox?

 

1. Change Your Diet and Eat Less Difficult-to-Digest Food

This means less wheat and dairy, fewer solid foods and more juices. Accordingly, it will give your body more energy to heal and detoxify. 

2. Stay Hydrated

The MOST IMPORTANT part of a detox is water. A quick guide: take your weight, and drink half that amount in ounces of water. If you weigh 160 pounds, you should be drinking 80 ounces of water as a minimum.

It is good to use the washroom every few hours, which indicates you are drinking enough water. 

Drinking water helps you flush out toxins and sodium that cause bloat. 

3. Veggies, Veggies, Veggies

For the 7 days, remember to eat lots of high-fiber, high-water vegetables (spinach, butternut squash, asparagus, artichokes and cucumber etc). These veggies will help enhance a healthier kidney, liver and gastrointestinal system—your body's natural detox systems.

4. Avoid Sugar & Alcoholic Drinks

Avoid alcoholic drinks (such as wine, beer, and spirits) during the detox programme. Alcohol is broken down briefly to acetaldehyde, a chemical that might damage liver cells and body tissues, before it is further broken down and eliminated from your body.

5. Light Workouts

Exercise boost circulation and, in turn, helps your body to eliminate toxins. You During the 7-day cleanse, you can include some simple home workouts in your daily routine. 

But remember to avoid intense training during these early days and whenever you’re feeling weak.

It’s best to simply spend at least twenty minutes every day being active.
