Does Detox Diets Work?

By Emma Deangela

Detox (or detoxification) is elimination of toxins from our body. It is done through proper diet of fruit, vegetable and water and avoids high processed foods and red meat. Another component that may be introduced is taking herbal supplements.

Detox may be misinterpreted as to rehabilitation of people with alcohol and drug problems alone. It is a misconception. Detox also deals with diet of natural (organic) foods in nature. Foods that are unprocessed are taken which helps purging the toxins out of our body.

Detox diet usually claims a leaner and healthier body. The health industry is cashing in on different detoxification goods and services that guarantee weight loss and leaner body.

Now, does detox diet really uphold to its claim or is it just one of those programs claiming to a healthier new you, after some time? Many people may be following some kind of regimens of detox diet and attesting to its effectiveness, therefore many others tend to believe and probably try it out themselves. The question is, does it really work or is it just a hype created by (may I say ‘hired’) known personalities to make it appear that everything works well?

There’s only one way to find out, try and find it out for yourself. We have different bodies, needless to say, needs. There are no exact same fit as to the nourishment of one another. It does not mean that when it works out well with them, it will have the same effect on you. You may be encouraged to what seems to be a good procedure, but, it is not necessarily good for you too.

Is detox diet just a fad? No one can exactly say. We all have our own opinion. It may be popular as of the moment, but soon as a new discovery unfolds, then it may fade sooner than we think. But for the meantime, its popularity remains on top and still being followed by many, having accumulated toxics for many years.

Health industry is spending a lot of money to further the improvement on the so called ‘detox’ diet; turning them into diverse forms. But, come take a closer look, the essentials are the same. It is just being presented in a manner that is not the same as what has been already introduced. In reality, detox diet is basically an intake of natural and unprocessed foods as opposed to high fat content foods.

Whether it is a fad or not, remains to be answered by individuals who either tried and benefitted from it or the ones who tried and did not get favorable results from it. At the end of the day, it is truly a well balanced diet that we could trust our body to uphold and adhere. Just do not allow it to be a reservoir of unhealthy foods. All it takes is just the right amount of carbohydrates, protein, fiber and fats. Yes, our body needs fats as well. Moderation is the key. We all know, anything that is too much or too little is unhealthy. We should not bind nor be blinded by any hype. Fad or not, we are the only ones who knew of our own body’s needs.
