Detoxing Done Right!

If you've been hip to the healthy eating trend that has seen tons of growth in the last year, then the term "detoxing" should be familiar to you.  With information at your fingertips, the benefits of a detox are easier than ever, but if not done correctly - detoxing can actually do more harm than good. Here at FitxBrit we think information is just as important as results so, what's detoxing done right?  Read more to find out.

NOTE: Checking with a doctor or certified nutritionist before ANY Detox plan is recommended.  Please be conscious about your body.
 
Key 1: Why Detox?
 
Water Detox, Detox Smoothies, 3 Day Cleanse are all things we can Google and find results, but the most important thing to understand about detoxing is that a good detox is designed to rid your body of any waste and toxins. The results? Increased energy levels, potential weight loss, reduction in belly fat, a boost to the immune system, and my personal favorite: more focus and a clear mind. 

Key 2: I Have My Detox. What Next?

Once you've decided on the detox program that will work best for you (hopefully you'll try the detox we provide at the end of this post!), what's next?  EATING, EATING, EATING! There is no real benefit to a detox if you continue bad eating habits.  While there is nothing wrong with the occasional cheat meal, a truly beneficial detox will go to waste if you don't plan healthy meals in addition to your detoxification. Living a healthier life does not have to be boring, just make better choices! If you don't have a clue how, signing up for our specialized meal plans will help you out a ton AND expose you to new recipes that will fit your lifestyle.
