For your weight loss problems, do you know that you can feel lighter, healthier, more energized and focused if you detox your body? And no—I am not talking about detoxifying through artificial juices or herbal supplements, for they may not be the healthiest ways to detoxify. I am talking about the natural way—ways you can immediately implement in your lifestyle right now.

Want to know more? Here goes:

Remove the junk in your diet

The first thing to do is to "de-clutter" and remove the “junk” like processed foods, refined carbs and sugar from your diet. Without them and you'll have more energy through the day and you can say farewell to your afternoon slump.

If you want to start cleansing your body, it is important to eliminate the junk in your body first. Think of it this way, you can't start cleaning your closet if you still have a lot of junk inside. Take everything out, choose what to keep and what to discard. Otherwise, you will be putting the same things back in its place and you will never be able to get out of the cycle.

It may be painful the first few days. But in a few short weeks you will be feeling great and less bloated.

Vegify, organify and fruitify

Now that you've removed the junk from your closet (just kidding)—your diet, you can shift now to healthier  foods. Think of including vegetable, fruits, whole grains, legumes, nuts and seeds, and grass-fed, organic proteins in your meals.  Choose whole, fresh, organic, and all-natural foods.

Unlike taking in processed foods, when you "vegify, fruitify and organify", you will be taking in more nutrient-dense and free of preservatives and chemicals  foods which is great for your body.

And when you eat, make your plate look as colorful as possible. Add in more of the greens and the oranges to ensure you're getting a variety of vitamins, antioxidants, and minerals.

Drink lots of water

The foundation of detoxifying is water — lots of water.  Drinking lots of water will keep you hydrated, prevent constipation and assist your digestive system and liver — which are the key body parts of eliminating the unwanted waste and toxins.

Sweat it out

Sweating is one of the ways the body gets rid of the toxins. So engage in activities that you love which will get you to move.  When you're up and moving you will be reaping the benefits of like losing the pounds, increasing your energy, boosting your mood, more alert mind, keeps you from aging and helping prevent diseases.

Try to relax and rejuvenate your body

Food is only one part of the restoration process.  You would want to focus on the totality of your self. And you can rejuvenate in many different ways to detoxify. For instance, take a good night's rest to repair and restore your body. Then, develop a cheerful attitude and a positive mindset to help you feel calm, loose, and centered. Do meditation or yoga if you like.
