2017. A new year, with new goals, res­o­lu­tions and an op­por­tu­nity for a fresh start to the calendar year. De­cem­ber marks a month of hol­i­day deca­dence, in­dul­gence and cel­e­bra­tion. This isn’t a bad thing, but as soon as the calendar switches over to Jan­uary, peo­ple be­gin to re­al­ize the waist­bands of their pants are fit­ting a lit­tle too snug and the spring marathon they’ve signed up for isn’t ac­tu­ally that far away. This is when the fad quick-fix di­ets take over our so­cial me­dia feeds, with lofty pro­pos­als of los­ing weight in a ridicu­lously short amount of time. They might be suc­cess­ful, but not many peo­ple are okay with eat­ing cel­ery and drink­ing some aw­ful tast­ing con­coc­tion for a week straight.

In­stead, swap­ping out some of those the hol­i­day beers for le­mon water; cook­ies for fruit; and calor­i­cally dense dishes for sat­is­fy­ing soups and sal­ads, can pro­vide suc­cess­ful re­sults while en­sur­ing es­sen­tial macro- and mi­cro-nu­tri­ents are be­ing con­sumed.

De­tox­i­fy­ing di­ets are very pop­u­lar at this time of year, but the sug­gested dishes don’t dif­fer much from what peo­ple eat on a daily ba­sis. They in­stead fo­cus on a high in­take of veg­eta­bles, healthy fats, lots of fi­bre, and an­tiox­i­dant in­gre­di­ents. These in­gre­di­ents help to cleanse the in­testines, get rid of tox­ins and get the body back on track.
