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.
