 What Every Bride Needs to Know About Detox

If you’re planning on losing some weight and getting healthy before your wedding, a detox can help you a lot. If done right, a detox will make you feel and look healthier, and help you lose some weight before the wedding.

Here is what you should know before starting a detox:

  • Why Detox?

We live in a modern world with lots of conveniences and innovations. But the good living comes with a cost: pollution, harmful substances and toxic chemicals surrounding us and damage our bodies. Detoxing the body is not a luxury treatment anymore - it has become a necessity to stay healthy, especially when you are a bride-to-be. A detox session, minimum once a year, works like a re-boot for your metabolism. Imagine your metabolism like a big wood oven; you need to clean out the burned leftovers like the acid slag, in order that the next fire can work properly. Detoxing your body is not only a healthy kick start for a better feeling; it's also the most natural way to lose weight.

  • How to Detox?

People tend to change their eating habits at once and then can't keep up with the change. My advice: Start slowly and easy. Get used to new routines and they will become very natural. Start detoxing your body with a Green Smoothie every morning before you have your breakfast. The smoothie stimulates your metabolism, flushes out toxics and provides your body with all the needed elements for the day; minerals, vitamins, fatty acids.

  • Here is a simple recipe for a Green Smoothie à la Caroline

2 cups coconut water

1 cup baby spinach leaves

1 green apple

1 orange, peeled

2-3 mint leaves

1 hearty dash of lemon juice

Green smoothies are an awesome and simple way to start detoxing. For an advanced treatment always consult a professional coach.
