Excessive bloating, extra weight that just won’t go away, headaches, fatigue, sluggish digestion, and stomach discomfort. These are all common signs of a body in need of a detoxification.
If extra weight has you stressed, then chances are, you’ll benefit from detoxing. Also if you’re about to begin dieting, then the best way to start off is by using the following daily detoxification rituals to help jump start the weight loss process and improve your body’s functionality so that it can respond properly to your new diet and allow you the results you’re hoping for.
A full inner body cleanse is the best way for you to achieve quick weight loss as it’ll remove toxins and waste build-up from your body. On top of that, cleansing will also provide a positive boost to your entire health.
Let’s go over the most powerful, yet simple remedies that will help you shed weight, detoxify your body, improve your health, and revitalize your energy — all at home and in a single day.
Start by drinking warm citrus and cayenne juice first thing in the morning
This warm juice will stimulate the digestive tract and trigger the detoxification process that’ll help you shed some quick weight since cayenne helps burn fat.
Since lemon has powerful detoxification properties — including flushing the liver of toxins so it can work properly — you’ll be jump starting your way to better health one sip at a time.
Add two tablespoons of lemon juice to a glass of warm water along with a pinch of both black and cayenne pepper to boost your metabolism, and a half a teaspoon of sea salt, for its laxative effect.
Cayenne and black pepper both help burn fat, so include both if you can. Cayenne should be eaten three times daily, so if you aren’t drinking the mixture throughout the day, include cayenne in your meals instead.
Drink the mixture throughout the day, and aim for light, healthy, and nutritious meals the rest of the day.
Try Dandelion for its Cleansing Effects
The dandelion plant has powerful weight loss and cleansing properties that shouldn’t be overlooked it you’re taking on any detoxification regimen. The roots and leaves can be made into a tea or the leafy greens can be eaten alone. The numerous benefits of consuming dandelion include reduced water retention.
If you’re making dandelion tea, go the extra mile and add peppermint. Studies show that just the smell alone will help decrease your appetite. The weight loss, digestive soothing, appetite-reducing, and toxin-removal properties also make peppermint totally worthy of adding to your detox.
Since the liver plays the role of cleansing toxins from your body, any good detoxification diet should include some focus on cleansing the liver.
Milk thistle is another extremely powerful liver cleanser that can be added to your diet. It can even improve liver damage when used regularly.
Hibiscus Tea to Keep the Fat Away
Have a cup of hibiscus tea to boost your weight loss results and provide your liver with extra protection at the same time. Research shows it may prevent fatty liver (non-alcholoic version) as well as improve fatty liver problems. Research has also suggested that hibiscus extract may have the ability to inhibit obesity, so consuming it on a regular basis can help keep the weight off.
When mid-morning hunger strikes, have a green smoothie
Try to stick with fiber-rich fruits and vegetables, whole grains for the carbs you’ll need to replenish your energy, beans, and lean proteins such as turkey breast, chicken, or wild salmon.
If using fats, stick with healthy ones such as olive oil, coconut oil or fish oil.
You can also include carrots and beets to help increase liver function. To keep from over-indulging, have a green smoothie using plenty of healthy, leafy green vegetables like kale, spinach, and wheatgrass for extra health and detoxification benefits. You can also include broccoli and cabbage to flush carcinogens from your liver and help keep you full.
Include Apples for A Clean Digestive System
When build up and toxins are cleansed from your digestive system, weight loss is often the first effect one notices. Eat an apple in place of a midnight snack. Not only will an apple help keep down those sugar cravings while you detox, but the pectin in apples will help flush toxins from your digestive system.
Speed Your Metabolism with Cloves
Include cloves in one of your meals — for example, alongside wild salmon for lunch — to speed your metabolism and burn even more calories.
If you need help keeping your appetite from raging out of control during your detox, include cinnamon and ginger into your diet. Both can be added to a cup of boiling water and drank as a tea, or you can toss a pinch of each into one of the detox teas listed above. Cinnamon and ginger will reduce your appetite and keep cravings at bay. Even after your day of detox, you should incorporate cinnamon into your daily diet to keep fat from being stored, and for its high nutritional profile.
Don’t forget to stay hydrated. Most detox regimens suggest two to four liters of water daily.
