per­son detoxes, the fat cells (where your body iso­lates nasty sub­stances) can shrink. There could be many un­pleas­ant side ef­fects to detox­ing, such as headaches, nau­sea, mus­cle cramps, feel­ing ir­ri­ta­ble, fa­tigue, dizzi­ness, and rashes. Rapid detox dumps such a heavy toxic load on your blood­stream all at once it's no won­der you feel mis­er­able.

My Ex­pe­ri­ence

I've tried sev­eral detoxes, and I must tell you that fad gim­micks don't of­ten work in the long run. If your in­ten­tion is to sim­ply cleanse the body and not lose weight, you could be suc­cess­ful—but if you in­tend to drop weight fast and keep it off, you'll be sorely dis­ap­pointed that most, if not all, of the weight lost will come back the sec­ond you re­turn to nor­mal food habits.

How to Nat­u­rally Detox

Rather than go­ing on a crazy detox diet, con­sider help­ing your body detox nat­u­rally by mak­ing smart food and bev­er­age choices. Ev­ery sin­gle day, the body detoxes nat­u­rally through the liver, kid­neys, in­testines, lungs, and skin. Here are my go-to tips:

Eat or­ganic fruits and veg­eta­bles, healthy fats, lean pro­teins, and un­pro­cessed foods to help the body be more ef­fi­cient

Sweat through ex­er­cise to fa­cil­i­tate the detox process

Drink at least 64 ounces (8 cups) of wa­ter a day

Elim­i­nate or re­duce bev­er­ages like soda (both reg­u­lar and diet) and al­co­hol

Re­duce caf­feine con­sump­tion, which can cause de­hy­dra­tion and lead to wa­ter re­ten­tion

Add a wedge of le­mon or lime to your wa­ter

Have a tea­spoon of ap­ple cider vine­gar a day to im­prove di­ges­tion and pro­mote al­ka­lin­ity

Eat enough fiber (28g/day for women and 35g/day for men)

Add more dark, leafy greens to your diet such as kale, Swiss chard, and spinach

Drink her­bal teas, such as decaf green tea

Re­duce sodium, which can cause wa­ter re­ten­tion and bloat­ing

See­ing Suc­cess

How do you know you've been suc­cess­ful at nat­u­rally detox­ing? You'll have more en­ergy, you'll sleep bet­ter, your stom­ach won't be as bloated, and you'll crave health­ier foods rather than junk food. As a bonus, your skin will be clearer and brighter, your hair will be silkier, and you'll feel bet­ter over­all. When you start to fol­low a health­ier life­style, you'll find that when you do fall off the band­wagon and have some sweets, junk food, or too much al­co­hol, you'll feel it. Lis­ten to your body. It will tell you what it needs—and what it doesn't!
