The majority of the people during the holidays get lazy regarding the exercises and they eat a lot of food that comes with sugar and fat, not to mention carbs. This is why it is a very good idea to have a detox after the holidays. How to do it?
You should get some fresh lemons (you would better walk to the grocery store) and when you arrive home, squeeze out the juice of a half of lemon right into a glass of water and consume it. This way it will be easier for you to regain the balance of the chemistry of your body. Trust Eva Longoria when she says this is her liver detox secret.
It is important to be well hydrated, and this is why you should make sure that you have at least 10 glasses of water per day, and it is even better if you have lemon juice added to all of them. This way you can get rid of toxins and fat because both of them are acidic.
Breathing is not only a basic function of your body, but it can also help you with your detox. Take some deep breaths. This way your brain will have more oxygen, and it also helps your cells regain their chemical balance. In case you have healthy cells, you will also have a healthy body.
Jennifer Gardner and Kim Kardashian are two of the celebrities using yoga breathing in their detox routines.
Go for a walk
It is easier to have more oxygen if you are moving, because you are forced to breathe deeper and faster. This is why you should make sure to have some trips away from the sofa. In case you have some exercise you will be able to boost your energy level, you will be in a better mood and you will have mental clarity.
You don’t really need the caffeine that can be found in coke or coffee. Instead you should opt for peppermint tea. The good thing about it is that it can fill you with energy, but unlike caffeine, peppermint doesn’t become addictive and it won’t reduce your energy a couple hours after consuming it. Gwyneth Paltrow is truly fond of this remedy.
When having lunch or dinner, you should really be thinking about having a lot of vegetables. Even if you don’t like some of the veggies, you should make sure that you have the others, such as guacamole and mashed potatoes. There are many different ways in which you can prepare them so that you won’t get bored, and you can also have them raw.
