After Christmas and New Year’s excesses with the non stop eating, drinking and partying we all feel like going on a detox diet. Be aware that just going on a detox during the month of January is not the answer and you don’t have to fast for a month to burn all those calories.
There are a few sensible steps that can help:
1. Exercise 30 min a day
2. Avoid alcoholic drinks
3. Avoid fat foods and eat more fruits and vegetables
4. Drink water and Tea to cleanse the body from toxins
Tea is an easy and powerful way to get rid of toxins, stimulate the processing of excess fat, stimulate circulation and provide antioxidants, vitamins and minerals.
If you need to avoid caffeine you can create a homemade detox infusion by mixing freshly boiled water, 1 teaspoon of maple syrup (you can also use honey as an alternative), freshly squeezed juice of half a lemon, a zest of ginger and a hint of cayenne pepper (don’t go too crazy on the pepper)!
