To detoxify the organism…
The holidays are over, the periods of excesses end and the depurative diets become an excellent option to eliminate all kinds of impurities from the organism, make a healthier life and begin to maintain the line. Therefore the Detox diet helps the body to eliminate toxins and protect against the so-called free radicals (harmful substances that accelerate aging).
The Antioxidants are substances capable of the slow oxidative process caused by the presence of free radicals. The organism possesses oxidizing enzymes but if these can not act due to a large amount of free radicals present then the non-enzymatic antioxidant substances come into play, among which we can highlight the following:
- Vitamins. Vitamin A, Vitamin C, Vitamin E.
- Amino acids. Methionine, Tyrosine, Cysteine.
- Minerals. Zinc, Copper, Selenium.
- Other. Flavonoids, Isoflavones, Carotenoids.
And this is how the body cleans itself through food, the drainage of retained liquids, and for that, we must offer our body the foods that have the highest concentration of vitamins and minerals to guarantee that fight against free radicals.
The Detox diet that we offer below is progressive, that is to say, little by little food is incorporated, but it starts with a detoxifying phase to get the body to cleanse itself in depth and eliminate the toxins that produce an excess of fluids and of weight in our body.
For this, it begins as indicated below with a phase of liquid fasting, and progressively we will add food until we complete the menu making it a balanced diet that does not eliminate any type of nutrients
We can perform this diet every so often repeating the process, but we can not lengthen the phases to lose more weight, as for example happens with the first liquid phase, with which more weight is lost, because few calories are ingested.
We must always repeat the ordered order, remember that it is not worth putting our health at risk.
