Don’t starve yourself

Detox is great and can give you the desired rights if you do it as it should.

For a successful detox, here are some do’s and don’ts that you should put in mind:

Do’s

1. Stay hydrated

Staying hydrated throughout this period will help flush out toxins from your colon, liver, and kidneys. This will also ensure that the other body processes are not affected in any way.

2. Pay attention to your body

Watch out for any symptoms and see a doctor if necessary. Bodies react differently depending on the detox diet used.

3. Get enough sleep

Your body works best while you are asleep. Sleeping enough will help in flushing out the toxins more effectively.

Don’ts

1. Don’t starve yourself

You don’t need to starve yourself for detox to work. You still need calories and other nutrients for your body to function properly. Eat but eat healthy.

2. Skip your exercise

You may not feel strong enough but you have to go on with your exercise routine. Keep it moderate though.

3. Give in to cravings

Resist the urge to eat unhealthy cravings. Otherwise, you will be flushing out toxins and taking in more if you don’t eat healthy.

4. Stress

Your body cannot absorb some nutrients effectively if you are stressed. Stay out of stress if you can when detoxing.

5. Detox for too long

Depending on your health, you may not be in a position to detox for 10 days like everyone else. If you can’t stand it, start with detoxing for one day or two if that’s what your body can stand.
