Many of us have heard the word detox, or detoxification. However, not all of us really know what detox, or detoxification is about and how is it related to slimming.
What is Detox?
Detoxification is the process of removing accumulated toxic substances from a persons body.
Why should we detox?
Every day, our body is exposed to pollutions such as the harsh chemicals from our surroundings. With our hectic lifestyle, most of us have poor dietary habits and tend to consume more processed food for convenience. These cause toxins to build up so rapidly in our body that our body could not detoxify itself fast enough to regain the equilibrium in our body.
These toxins can destroy body tissues and, over time, may lead to:
Poor digestive system
(eg: constipation, indigestion, bloating)
Slower metabolism rate
Lower immunity to illness
How is our slimming regime related to detox?
To slim down effectively (and for long term with no rebound), we have to focus on burning FATS! Our body burns fats faster when our metabolism rate is higher.
When you detox, the accumulated toxins are purge out of your body which in turn lessen the burden on your body, leading to better metabolism rate. This means that your body can now burn more calories and fats than before you detox.
Detox helped me lose weight, therefore detox = slimming?
Some of us will experience weight loss when we detox. However, the weight loss from detoxification is usually due to lesser water retention and excrement of toxins from the body.Therefore, detoxification is the FIRST step to achieving your goal. To achieve your desired slimming goal, it is also important for you to maintain a well balanced diet (2 servings of fruits and 2 servings of vegetables) and healthy lifestyle.
