What You Need To Know About A Cleansing System

By Guest

The Master Cleanse or Lemon Detox Diet, Fat Flush, 21 Pounds in 21 Days, the Liver Detox Diet;these are just a few of the so-called detox diets that have become all the rage and have holistic healers and diet gurus pushing all sorts of products and regimens that are supposed to help purge our bodies of chemicals and toxins, while helping us to lose weight fast.

Why should a person try to remove these so called toxins? Is your body in danger due to the presence of these toxins. And should you try one of these plans for weight loss and optimal body performance? According to doctors the answer is a resounding no because although a day on a detox diet program probably won’t hurt you, there is little point in following these restrictive diets, and they can do far more harm than good. Extreme diets generally do little more than cause frustration, are potentially dangerous. They often times are a waste of time and money.

Not everyone understands how these cleansing systems work. Most detox diets promote herbs, pills, potions, colonics, and fasts to rid the body of impurities and they also promise a quick way to lose fat naturally, but the truth is that you will shed unwanted pounds, but it is not because of any medical magic, it is because these plans are super-low in calories.

There is a loss of weight that occurs when a person follow one of these programs, but there is also a lack of nutrition that comes with it. Detox diets tend to be extremely restrictive, allowing only unprocessed plant foods. The natural foods are supposedly better for the way that our bodies are supposed to work.

Many of the detox program have mixes that are drunk along with an enormous amount of water on a daily basis. One regimen calls for liquids for 10 days, without any solids. Coffee, tea, alcohol, processed foods, and animal products are not commonly part of any detox diet plans. Enjoying a plant-based diet is perfectly healthy, but most detox diets go to extremes.

Any time that you follow a program that severely restricts your food intake a person should worry if they are getting enough nutrition. It is very difficult to get all the nutrients and energy you need for good health with such restrictive regimens. Most medical experts say that these radical cleansing systems are not safe and should be avoided unless a person has other reasons to use one than health.

A cleansing system can cause harm in a variety of ways. There is a lot of evidence that says that they do not have to be done. Many cases have been documented about a person who followed a cleansing program and got sick from it. Not everyone agrees that they do any good for a person. These experts say you can get the same types of results without going to the drastic measures that are called for. Eating in moderation and getting physical activity can be just as effective. Add more fresh fruits and vegetables to your menu instead of the daily trips to the fast food place. That is one way to keep the poisons from accumulating in our systems.

Our bodies are designed to remove unwanted substances from within. It is hard to not do this. People run into trouble when they take in to many of the unwanted chemicals into their body because of the way they eat and live. These radical plans can be avoided if a person does not overdo the unhealthy things in life. By eating the right foods and only eating unhealthy things in moderation a person will be able to keep their body working efficiently without having to undergo a special program on a regular basis. That can save you a lot of time and wasted money that would be used on a detox program.
