Detox for Summer

By: Ana Alvarez

It’s that time of the year again!

Summer is just around the corner and many people look forward to rocking that new bathing suit.  Are you already looking and feeling your best? We all like to look great in shorts or a bathing suit so there is motivation. It is time to Detox!

Detoxing involves eating mostly vegetables and fruits for 4-7 days, with some lean proteins and oils, and drinking plenty of water while getting lots of rest. The transition from spring to summer is a great time to move towards losing weight and cleanse your body of toxins and impurities.

Detox will improve your body’s ability to absorb nutrients, jump-start your metabolism to burn fat and reset your palate to crave healthy foods. Detox week is not always easy, but you will love the benefits and how great you are going to feel when you are done.

Before beginning a detox, we recommend that you watch this “Detox” video for additional information:
