Hey babes! My 3 Day Detox ebook is now live and I am hosting a 3 Day Detox Challenge this Tuesday! Are you in??
Get ready for some delicious, plant-based recipes and a detox challenge that will help you cleanse and rejuvenate your body in a safe and gentle way.
I’ve put together this recap of my 3 Day Detox Challenge Daily Habits and why they are so important. If you follow these eight healthy habits for all three days, you will feel your very best!
This healthy habits checklist is found in your 3 Day Detox ebook. But, I’m also putting it up here for you and explaining why each one is so important to our detox. So, read them over and print out your checklist from your ebook.
1. Drink Warm Lemon Water Upon Rising
You’ve spend 7 to 8 hours not consuming any liquids, your body is dehydrated. Drinking warm lemon water upon rising is a great way to rehydrate. Did you know you can lose water through skin perspiration and even through your breathing? Oh and the vitamin C from the lemons boosts your immune system.
2. Drink 1 Cup of Turmeric Detox Drink before Meals
I love this drink. All of the ingredients in this drink are like rockstars that can help boost the overall detoxification of your body. Research shows that ingredients like Apple Cider Vinegar, Lemons, and Turmeric helps stimulate cardiovascular circulation and helps detoxify your liver.
3. Follow The Detox Meal Plan
All of the recipes in your 3 Day Detox ebook are specifically designed to cleanse your body, remove toxins and flood your system with vitamins, minerals, enzymes, and antioxidants galore!
4. Avoid the Not Allowed Foods
Our bodies are naturally made to cleanse themselves. Our liver, kidneys, lungs, lymph, skin and colon detox our body by eliminating and neutralizing toxins. But…we don’t eat the way generations before us ate. Today we over-consume foods that are fried, full of sugar, white flour, gluten, chemicals, GMO’s, large amounts of animal protein, saturated fats, alcohol and heavy amounts of caffeine. These foods are very taxing on our detox pathways and inhibit our bodies from performing the detoxification processes properly. Ditching the Not Allowed Foods and adding in these detox superstar recipes for a few days will helps out your body tremendously.
5. Drink 8 Cups of Water Daily
Sip, Sip, Sip that water girl! Drinking adequate water during a detox helps your body flush out all of those toxins. It also promotes what’s known as a thermogenic state, which increases your metabolic rate and can help you lose more weight.
6. Close the Kitchen After Dinner.
Make it a goal to have your last meal no later than 7:00 PM during these 3 days. Restaurants have a last-call and so should you. Your last call should be dinner time. When you officially close your kitchen after dinner, as in you don’t enter the kitchen for anything other than water or herbal tea you are making a conscious effort not to over eat. Many of us snack at night without realizing how much were actually consuming.
This is a difficult habit to break, esp…if you like to Netflix and chill after work or doing some online surfings / online shopping / checking emails, etc. But, you can do it! Just follow my rule and close the kitchen after 7:00 pm. Also, readjust your food intake cycle by shifting more of your daily calories to the first part of your day.
7. Avoid Alcoholic Beverages
Alcoholic beverages are mostly empty calories. Drinking alcohol during a detox is just plain counterproductive since our goal is to remove toxins from our body.
8. Optional: Add Supportive Nutritional Supplements
Although, this is not mandatory at all, I’ve listed some of my favorite supplements that I love and personally use for added support while I’m doing a detox. The PGX fiber for example, helps controls the release of sugars into the bloodstream, slowing digestion and creating a feeling of satiation.
These 8 habits are essential to feeling your very best! So, get a jumpstart on these habits NOW and before you know it, they’ll be part of your lifestyle!
