Environmental toxins are everywhere, and your body absorbs things like pesticides, pollution, and chemicals on a daily basis. You will lose weight when you begin your weight loss journey, but that doesn’t eliminate the stored hormones, toxins, and other chemicals inside adipose (fat) tissue. Detoxifying after weight loss is important and can eliminate toxins from your body, release stored chemicals, promote weight loss, and improve your overall health.
Every person is different, so the results vary with detoxification. The goal is to make sure you eat a healthy diet and lead an overall healthy lifestyle after the process. These are a few of the best ways to detoxify your body after weight loss:
- Fasting 1-3 days
- Taking supplements
- Using herbs
- Lemon water
- Drinking only juices or smoothies
- Using a sauna
- Cleansing the colon
Detoxing also has other positive results on fat loss, insulin resistance, blood pressure, and skin. Detoxes can encourage habits that may enhance the body’s normal detoxification processes, such as eating a healthy diet, getting enough exercise, and staying hydrated. Depending on the measures you took to lose weight, you can be overly toxic after weight loss, so it is important to lose weight at a healthy rate and engage in a safe detox for the best results and eliminate extra toxins in your body.
