Detoxing is not an easy fix

After a whole year of binging on unhealthy and processed foods, the post-New Year's detox can feel right. People love a shortcut. The problem is that shortcuts just not sustainable.

True health is about making long-lasting changes that you can stick to, and that's the opposite of what a detox really is.

Slashing certain macronutrients

Carbs, protein, and fat are the trifecta of perfection for keeping your body healthy.

  • Carbs offer both physical and mental fuel
  • Protein helps keep you full and is the building block of muscle
  • Fat is satiating and often has skin-improving antioxidants.

When you eliminate these important nutrients, you may see slowed metabolism from drastically decreasing calories, dry skin, decreased energy, and crankiness.

Your body's detoxing systems

The effects of modern life — pollution, poor dietary choices, contaminants in our food and water, stress or a sedentary lifestyle — can compromise the body’s ability to effectively detox the way it’s supposed to.

The result of this toxic internal “congestion” is that we gain weight, develop diseases and lose our natural energy and vitality.

Tired or sick

While it’s normal to feel somewhat fatigued during the first few days of detox, most experience more energy and sleeping better once they’ve adjusted. Mostly, detoxing shouldn't make you feel tired or sick.

Part of the reason for this is that your body is doing less work digesting, which means you’re getting the benefit of that saved energy.
