5 Steps That Will Help You Prepare for a Detox August 12, 2013 By: admin 0 It’s an accepted practice that before you go on a detox diet, a bit of preparation is required. So, here are 5 steps to preparing yourself before you go on a detox diet: #1: A Mini-Makeover Some foods can prevent your detox diet from becoming a complete success. So, not only is it a good idea to plan your diet and shop for it but also begin to remove any foods from your kitchen that might tempt you. Also, make sure that you begin to eliminate foods or drinks from your diet that contain alcohol, sugar, dairy, wheat, artificial sweeteners, trans fats while also avoiding all forms of processed or fast food. #2: Drink more water It’s important to drink plenty of water during a detox diet. At least, eight glasses of water a day will not only keep you hydrated but it will flush out toxins as well. Drinking water, at either room temperature or lukewarm, with a bit of lemon is a good idea. #3: Deal with Caffeine Withdrawal If you drink caffeinated beverages, it’s important to either find low-caffeine substitutes or reduce your caffeine intake altogether. You can try drinking Swiss water decaffeinated coffee or even low-caffeine teas that are available for a few days before you start the detox diet. #4: Buy a Few Tools for Your Detox There are a couple of tools that can help you with your detox. Some of these include using a brush as well as essential oils to enhance circulation in your body while also offering a sense of relaxation during the diet. #5: List down what you shouldn’t cut out If you are taking any medication, it’s important not to avoid taking them during your detox diet, especially if there are serious, life-threatening consequences attached to them.
