Let’s talk a little bit about detoxing and how to tell if you actually need one. Detoxing simply means ridding your body of free radicals and toxins that enter your body through the foods you eat and the air you breathe.

We are exposed to all types of toxins daily and although our body does an amazing job of eliminating them, sometimes extra help is needed.

Also, as we eat unhealthy foods, sugary drinks, or smoke cigarettes, our detoxification system starts to work extra hard to eliminate toxins left behind by these foods.

This causes a multitasking effect on our organs and doing a 3-day cleanse can sometimes be the best option to reset our system.

That said, doing a cleanse and going back to your same old unhealthy eating and lifestyle habits won’t get you long-term results. Here is a low-calorie diet plan to help you lose weight and remain healthy.

Signs You Need A Detox

Some of the most common signs you need a detox are fatigue, low-grade inflammation, unexplained weight gain, allergies, bad breath, stomach problems like bloating and gas along with mood and sleep changes.

It’s important to know that having some or all of these symptoms could indicate other health problems as well. That’s why it’s always important to rule them out before trying to self-treat at home.

Spinach Detox Smoothie Recipes For Weight Loss

When using smoothies to detox your body, always look for ingredients that are high in antioxidants, high in dietary fiber, vitamin C, and anti-inflammatory properties.

Antioxidants and vitamin C are responsible for ridding your body of free radicals while anti-inflammatory foods help reduce inflamamtion which has been linked to weight gain.

Dietary fiber is important for optimal gut health, and digestion, keeps you feeling full longer during the day, reduces cravings, and constipation, and is needed by your digestive system to eliminate toxins.

Citrus fruits and vegetables are high in vitamin C content. Ginger, turmeric, and parsley contain anti-inflammatory properties along with antioxidants while bananas, cucumbers, strawberries, and apples contain dietary fiber.

How To Detox With Smoothies

  • In order to detox your body with smoothies, you will need to consume only fruit or vegetable smoothies and water for the duration of 1 to 3 days.
  • When detoxing, you will need to drink up to 8 glasses of water throughout the day. Water helps flush out toxins and prevent water retention.
  • The fruits and veggies used in your smoothies will provide your body with enough vitamins and minerals to keep your energy levels up.

Are Smoothies Good For Weight Loss?

The short answer is yes, detox smoothies work but you will need to choose the right ingredients and drink them at the right time.

Adding the wrong fruits and vegetables to your smoothies will make you gain weight instead of losing it.

High fiber, high citric, and high protein fruits and vegetables should be your choice of ingredients when adding smoothies to your diet.

In most cases though, fruits and vegetables that are high in fiber and protein are also high in carbs and calories. Therefore, you must follow a low-calorie diet plan or consume them as meal replacement shakes to decrease your calorie intake.
