Best Detox Cleanse Diet
This natural diet is the healthiest and cheapest way to cleanse your digestive system and detox your entire body. Forget the fad diets, the shakes, fasting, and the expensive pills and bottles of garbage. This detox cleanse diet uses the vitamins, anti-oxidants, and fiber found in natural, unprocessed foods. Its a no-nonsense and straight forward nutritional plan designed to clean your pipes out. This nutritional plan consists of very easy and quick meals that are inexpensive as well. The meals are all filling, tasty, and made from minimially proccessed or unprocessed foods. Legumes, vegetables, and fruits are all cleanse-detox powerhouses that provide vitamins, anti-oxidants, and fiber. You will also notice that there is very little meat in this detox cleanse diet and this is by design. The only meat is occasional salmon to provide you with omega 3 essential fatty acids. Animals concentrate polutants in the environment so we keep their use to an absolute minimum.
The science behind detox and cleanse products
There is zero science behind "detox" and "cleanse" products despite what the advertisers claim. On the other hand, there IS solid research that shows the health benefits of eating vegetables, and fruits because of their fiber, vitamin and anti-oxidant content. Although scientists might not use the terms "cleanse" or "detox" in respect to fruits and vegetables, that is what a diet consisting of these natural nutritional powerhouses do. As an example, naturally occurring fiber like that in vegetables, legumes, and grains like oats has been shown to lower blood cholesterol. Whether you want to call it "cleanse" or not, that is what it does.
Gas and digestional problems
Many of you at this point will say "but beans give me gas". Thats the point! If your nutrition has been poor and you have been eating a lot of processed foods or restaurant meals, its very likely that you have not been getting a lot of fiber. When you switch to this nutritional plan, you WILL have a lot of gas and you will need to poop a lot - thats the idea! Gas means the detox and cleanse is working. Get that junk cleaned out of your system!
How to use this detox cleanse meal diet
Unless you are dangerously underweight, it is suggested that you use a 10% caloric deficit
with this detox cleanse diet. Because of all the fiber, you will never be hungry, in fact, you will have trouble eating all the food. It is suggested that you stick to this plan precisely for at least a week with no cheat meals or beverages at all. This nutritional plan is actually excellent for both muscle gain and for fat loss so you can handle the fact that it is so strict, it would make an excellent nutritional style to stick to 365 days a year!
Doing cardio is a very important part of a detox cleanse! Get at least 30 minute of cardio a day. If you have never exercised before then WALKING is the best exercise. If you are fit then use swimming, running, or whatever sport excites you. The point of cardio is two fold. First, the constant gentle motion is excellent at speeding the food thru your digestional tract. Second because it puts your metabolism into high gear so that things happen faster.
People throw the term "easily digestible" around like its a good thing, its NOT! When we go to the gym, do we bench press with the 1lb dumbbells because they are the easiest to lift? No! We lift as much weight as we can with good form to give our pecs an awesome workout! Similarly, fiber gives your GI system a good workout, thats why its so good for you. Wonderbread is "easily digestible". White rice is "easily digestible". These things are like doing a dumbbell press with 1lb dumbbells. A lot of time people stay away from high fiber foods like beans and vegetables because they dont want to "pass gas". Farting is the sign of a properly functioning digestive system! Not farting means you are ill. Not only does fiber fill you up without any calories but it has many health benefits as well. Fiber can lower chance of cancer. Fiber allows good bacteria to thrive in your digestive tract which helps prevent cancer. Yes, fiber causes a little gas and when you start eating it, it can upset your digestive system until your body becomes accustomed to it.
