Fasting: As Indians, we're not new to the concept of fasting. However, the benefits of fasting go way beyond religious reasons. A single day of fasting in a week or twice a month, gives your internal organs some time to rejuvenate and recharge. Consume very light food like fresh veggies and fruit juices throughout the day, to sustain you during the fast.
Swap one meal for a detoxifying smoothie: If fasting is not your thing, try replacing one meal with a smoothie instead. A detoxifying smoothie made of green vegetables and natural ingredients provide your body with a wealth of vitamins, minerals and phytonutrients. These natural foods help get rid of toxins and cleanse your body.
Begin your day with lemon, honey and water: Lemon and honey work together as an effective digestive tonic. Mix them up in a big glass of water and drink it early in the morning, on an empty stomach, to flush out the toxins from your body.
Replace coffee with green tea: When you're trying to cleanse your body, you will have to give up caffeine. But if you really want your afternoon energy-kick, choose green tea instead. It may not have high amounts of caffeine, but it's still enough to keep you active. Plus, the antioxidants in green tea further help your body detoxify. Read more on idiva.
