If you’re going to pursue a proper detox regiment, then you’ll need a healthy eating plan to ensure the best results. While there are many popular detox plans around today, only a few will properly cleanse the body in a healthy and fulfilling way, so it’s best to pick the plan that leaves you feeling your best. Many people make the mistake that a good detox diet requires no eating. While some detox plans encourage a liquid only diet, these may result in weight gain once the regiment is over, so to avoid excessive gain while achieving detoxification, you’ll need to have a healthy eating plan.
Quantity Of Intake While you’re going to be eating less on your detox plan, you’ll actually be eating more often. One of the best ways to approach a detox plan is to set 5-6 eating times throughout the day, consisting entirely of small meals made up of fruit and vegetables (and the occasional carbohydrate). Eating small meals more often, as compared to larger meals less often, will keep you from getting hungry as the day goes on. Most people will break their detox regiment when they become to hungry, as certain urges may kick in, leaving you vulnerable to your cravings. Eating 5-6 small meals at proper intervals will ensure that your hunger is satiated, so the cravings won’t get too bad.
The quantity of your water intake should also increase to compliment your healthy eating plan. Make sure to drink a full glass of water with each small meal, while also drinking steadily throughout the day. This will ensure that the body stays hydrated, so you won’t confuse dehydration for hunger. An increase in water intake also means better detoxification results, so make sure to drink plenty as the day goes on.
Quality Of Intake A healthy eating plan means better quality food, so be prepared to start thinking green. As mentioned before, your meals will mostly consist of fruits and vegetables, but don’t think that this is all bad. There are plenty of options for fruits and vegetables to choose one, and they don’t always need to be eaten raw. Many vegetables can be grilled or steamed to add a twist to a dish, while fruits can be blended into smoothies for a quick meal on the go.
You can avoid carbohydrates if you wish, but if you’re looking to keep off the weight from your detox diet, then you way want to consider a steady intake of carbohydrates during your regiment. Cutting the carbs out entirely may lead to weight increase after the detox is over, so eating carbohydrates once a day, such as wheat pasta or wheat bread, will help you adjust to the diet without worrying about weight loss later on.
A healthy eating plan for a detox diet will consist of many small meals with a healthier quality. The benefit of this regiment is that the body will go through a process of cleansing, as it will only take in foods with plenty of nutrients, while consuming a lot of water throughout the day to properly drain the body.
