If you're looking for a quick way to lose some weight, try starting a cleansing or detox diet. They are called this because your body goes through a detoxification process when you follow this type of diet. As you under go this detoxification, your body, specifically your liver, rids itself of harmful toxins and other unnatural compounds. One of the more popular kinds of these diets is the Grapefruit Cleanse.
This type of cleanse is a very mild approach used to purify your body from harmful toxins. The grapefruit is consumed at the beginning of each meal. The great thing about grapefruit compared to other modes of cleansing is the fact it is a source of nutrition and sustenance. You can also choose to go on this diet at any time for any length of time without worrying about any harmful side effects either. Here are some steps to follow in using this cleansing diet:
- Before you jump right into the diet, choose a time when it will best to start it. The best time is when you will not be too overwhelmed at work and will not be under a lot of stress. I would not recommend any traveling or road trips either when starting this diet. Grapefruit will cause you to go to the bathroom more frequently than usual.
- In order to go on a grapefruit cleansing diet, you're going to need a lot of fresh grapefruit. Go with a store that sells organically grown grapefruit. True, you'll end up paying more but the health benefits you'll get will be worth it. The rest of the ingredients you'll use are cheap and easy to find.
- As you're following this diet, you should always try to take one hot shower every day. Scrub all over your body with either a sponge or loofah. The scrubbing acts as a stimulus to improve the blood circulation which helps to get rid of toxins. It is also important that you try to get plenty of exercise. Most health experts call for at least 45 minutes every day while on the diet. Try not to overdo it though. This cleansing diet is very low-calorie and you may feel a dramatic loss of energy. Pace yourself.
- Once your cleanse is over, do not jump back into eating a full meal. You'll send your body into shock. Instead, eat sensibly and work your system back to normal slowly. You do not want to ruin all that hard work by gaining everything back either. paying a little more but they will be better and healthier for you. The rest of the ingredients in this cleanse are cheap and easy to find.
- During the cleanse, you'll need a source of vitamins to remain healthy. I recommend finding a good multi-vitamin, preferably with all-natural ingredients. First, start with drinking about 10 eight ounce glasses of purified water every day. It is imperative that you drink this amount. If you can not drink ten, that's fine but always drink more than seven at the very least. Follow whichever variation of the Grapefruit Cleansing Diet you chose to follow strictly. No matter what you are eating grapefruit for every meal so I hope you like its taste.
