Christmas is almost here and all those feasts will surely need to be followed with some fasting. It doesn't necessarily have to be an intense diet that only allows you to munch on a celery per day. What I like to do is to eat clean, perhaps avoid cooking anything at all and eat everything in it's raw, natural form. That's moderation in it's modern sense no? No need to starve or feel dizzy embarking on the Cabbage Soup diet. Instead eat clean, steer clear of any dairy, processed junk, wheat and sugar.
Pair Teatox with Clean Eating
How long you'd want to do it for varies but in my experience, two weeks post-Christmas seems more than enough to reset the body to it's usual healthy zone and get rid of toxins. Detox tea or the now newly termed teatox is the ultimate cleansing companion in such healthy eating sprees. Of course you can incorporate this in your daily life alongside your usual diet but it shows far more fabulous results if you eat clean and start your mornings with some teatox.
The one by D3tox is absolutely lovely! I'm not sure about you but I personally cannot stand loose tea leaves. I've noticed many teatox providers like to present it in such manner housed in a fancy tin container. Sure it looks pretty but is absolutely inconvenient if you're in a hurry and lazy like myself. The ones by the brand mentioned above come in a handy pyramid shaped teabag making brewing a less tedious task. Simply get this brewing whilst you shower and start your mornings with this instead of the usual lemon water. It contains the super ingredient green tea of course but the addition of a few dried strawberries and papaya thrown in. This works great at neutralising the herbal scent of the concoction and making it smell and taste a bit more fruity, fresh and crisp.
Benefits of Teatox
Perfect for battling excess water retention, bloating and the overall feeling of sluggishness. Salt, sugar and wheat the are main culprits for this which I believe we all will be over-indulging in this festive season. A teatox can help kick start your metabolism, cleanse the digestive system, help you feel energised and rejuvenated and help burn more calories if combined with healthy eating and a decent amount of activity. Seems like the perfect solution as we reach New Year's. The last thing I want to do is to feel guilty for not adhering to 2014's health goals! Well, new year, new start eh?
