Whenever you are hungry, eat fresh vegetables. Vegetables leave very few toxins behind in your body. Wash off any chemicals from the outside of nonorganic vegetables.

Eat two to three servings of fresh fruit each day. Strawberries and cherries contain an acid that will help to detoxify the body. Use organic fruits or wash chemicals of fruits before consuming.

Eat whole grain. When desiring breads and pastas, select whole-grain varieties. White bread and regular pasta have too many simple carbohydrates and add toxins to the body.

Tip

There are many detoxification diets. Each allows you to lose weight. But you need to find one that you can use for the rest of your life if you are going to maintain the weight loss. Diets like the lemon aid diet will allow you to gain weight that you are likely to regain as soon as you go off the diet. You will not feel as hungry if you chew your food slowly and take time to relax as you eat.

Warning

Many detoxification diets are not healthy for you. They can cause you to get dehydrated, have mood swings and even make your body start to shut down. Find a detox diet that is safe and healthy.
