Live Lean Nation, I’ve been asked numerous times about detox and cleanse diets. So on today’s episode of Live Lean TV I’m sharing my thoughts on this and 12 of the best detox foods.
Alright, the word detox and cleanse gets thrown around like crazy in the health industry. I’m often asked, is it necessary? Should you do it? And how should you do it?
Most professionals suggest you do a detox before starting a new “diet”.
– Eliminate cravings
– Increase energy
– Help digestion
– And clean up your liver.
Just so we’re clear, I’m not arguing with any of those claims.
Then they’ll send their clients a list of “detox” foods high in antioxidants and anti-inflammatory properties to help cleanse and detox the liver during the “cleanse” period.
#3. Bussel sprouts
#6. Collard greens
#9. Green tea
All Live Lean approved foods right?
I’ve never done a “detox cleanse” before.
Because I’ve commited to a lifestyle of eating primarily whole foods containing one ingredient. And that’s what I’m teaching you. I’m teaching you that it’s a lifestyle way of eating. Not just a short-term detox.
Guys, when are we going to stop the rollercoaster of eating like crap, feeling like crap, then doing a cleanse, feeling better, but then getting bored with the food, and ultimately falling back into the eating like crap trap.
It’s NOT about detoxes.
It’s NOT about cleanses.
It’s NOT about going on diets.
It’s NOT about perfection.
It’s about progress.
It’s about a lifestyle.
It’s about a commiting to raising your life’s standards.
It’s about striving to be better everyday.
It’s about consistency.
It’s about focusing on eating one ingredient foods.
There’s no magic pill. There’s no magic diet.
But if you have a strong enough “why”, an emotional connection to why you need to change your habits, then you’ll have that driving force behind making these lifestyle changes.
So I ask you…
