I’m assuming that if you’re reading this you intend on starting a health cleanse or detoxification. Personally, I enjoy starting my health cleanse by doing a 48-hour fast, followed by drinking loose-leaf green tea for another 48 hours. From my experience, there are many elements about cleansing that a lot of people would never have guessed. Read on to find out more.
1. Sluggishness! But not for the reason you may think…
On the second and third day of almost all of my cleanses, I feel achy and sluggish. My mom is the real health nut, and what she told me surprised me to no end. The reason you feel that terrible achiness in the middle of your detox is because your body is purging toxins from your body! Toxins are entering your blood stream, your digestive system, and are even being purged from your pores. Crazy right?
2. You will experience positive effects too!
I found after the third day of fasting that my sense of smell had improved dramatically, and my sinuses had cleared like never before. That’s coming from a guy with terrible allergies. I also found that after a few days of cleansing, I woke up with a huge boost of energy.
3. Cleansing is a great way to jump start fat loss.
If you’re thinking about starting a diet, I highly recommend doing a detox prior to your diet. Doing a detox before starting a diet allows your liver and digestive system a rest. So when you start dieting your body will work with you and not against you in your goal to lose fat.
4. Cleansing will help you lose fat healthfully and naturally.
Guess where a huge amount of toxicity resides in your body. You guessed it! Fat cells. Now guess what happens when you start eliminating those toxins. Right again! All the fat that those toxins were holding onto is now usable for energy. Fat loss at its finest.
5. Don’t think you can just jump right back into eating junk!
Your body is not ready to go right back to all that abrasive junk food. So be smart about it, and ease into it. Take it one small fairly healthy meal at a time.
