3-Day Detox Plan To Remove Fat And Excess Water In Your Body

3-Day Detox Plan To Remove Fat And Excess Water In Your Body

Putting simply, Detox stands short for “Detoxification”, which is a term for eliminating toxins from your body. It is simply a strict kind of diet, dedicated to removing toxins from your bloodstream. Now, it could be that you just said that “it sounds difficult”, and in most cases, not wrongly. Yet, here we have a much more of a “humane” detox plan for you, one that you should not be fretting in trying it out for yourselves.

Oh and if you’re not sold just yet, we should also mention that this plan also helps in removing future fat and any excess water from your system!

Step 1: The Preparations

Just as in any other kind of diet, making preparations is an important part of the process, the groundwork if you will. When it comes to detox diet you should stop consuming any kind of dairy product for at least 2 days prior the detoxification process.

For most, if not all of us, it is hard on our bodies to digest dairy products, something that could very much thwart your detoxing process, which can be very frustrating to realize only when you’re just about to complete your three day diet plan.

Step 2: Diuretic Drinking

The night before you begin your detox plan, you should drink a home grown diuretic drink (tea is highly recommended). Two measures of Dark Forest tea should do the trick. Doing so will help you cleanse your digestive system of any kind of poisons, ensuring that you’ll still be able to achieve some success behind the bathroom doors.

Step 3: If Life Gives You Lemons…

The following morning, be sure to drink lemon water before you drink or chuck down those cereals as a power of habit. The lemon juice should be consisted of two lemons and a half cup of water.

We know, it sounds delicious already.

Step 4: Finally, Juice

You should be thrilled to hear that after drinking that lemon water and eating your breakfast, all that is now required of you is to drink one and a half cups of pineapple/grapefruit juice. The reason is that both posses a plentiful amount of antioxidants, which will serve you respiratory system quite well.

Sounds extremely easy after drinking that lemon juice, doesn’t it?

Step 5: Another Serving Of Juice

If you’re still thirsty, you’re in luck, since you should also drink between one and one and a half cups of carrot juice, between breakfast and lunch. The reasoning this time is that carrot juice is beneficial to your respiratory tract.

Step 6: And… More Juice

Well, you couldn’t expect any different than more drinking, could you? Drinking is known to be a substantial part of a detox plan. This time, you will be drinking one and a half cups of some juice that’s rich in potassium, during lunch. You can find a high concentration of potassium in beets, avocado, bananas, and more (google will name you all the rest).

Potassium will serve as a beneficial factor in cleaning your body.

Step 7: Detox From Mucus

Guess what? Instead of juice, we’re back to tea again! You should drink mucus-cleansing tea one hour before dinner time. Ingredients that should make their presence inside the tea are: peppermint, rose hips and ginger. This should help you prevent mucus build up as well as congestion.

Step 8: Juice Up For Bedtime

Just in case that you were missing juice, you should drink 340 ml of cranberry juice before heading for bed. Cranberry juice will help against bacteria in your lungs.

All of these steps should be repeated for the next two days as well. So drink well, and happy cleansing!

5 Simple Ways to Relieve Stress Effectively

5 Simple Ways to Relieve Stress Effectively

Everyone experiences mental stress at one time or another. Maybe you’re starting a new career, job, or business, or you feel incredibly overwhelmed between work, parenting, and your love life (or a lack of it). It could even be that you simply feel that you have way too much to do and not enough time to do it,  plus, on top of everything, nothing seems to be going the way it should!

Yup, we all experience mental stress from time-to-time, and that’s okay as long as you have the tools, techniques and knowledge that allow you to fully relieve it once it comes.

Here are 5 tips for relieving mental stress when it comes so you can function at your best while feeling good (and doing well) in work, love, or life:

1. Get Rationally Optimistic

Mental stress starts with your perception of your experiences. For instance, most people get stressed out when they perceive their reality as “being wrong” in some way. Essentially, they have a set idea of how things “should be” at any given moment, and when reality ends up being different (not even necessarily bad), they get stressed.

This process is simply a result of perception and can be easily “fixed” by recognizing that although life might not always be going as YOU think it should, it’s still going as it should—for your own benefit.

In fact, once you fully recognize that everything in your life ultimately happens for your own growth, progress, and development—so you can achieve your goals and dreams—your perception works in your favor. You soon process and respond to your experience of life differently, for your advantage. That’s the essence of becoming “rationally optimistic.”

The result: no more mental stress.

2. Unplug

Just like you might need to unplug your computer when it starts acting all crazy, you should also “unplug” your mind.

How on earth do you unplug your mind? Simple: just meditate.

It isn’t nearly difficult or complicated as some people think, so, if you don’t already meditate, give it a try. Whether you meditate for 5 minutes, 30 minutes, or 2 hours, this is a surefire way to reduce mental stress.

Meditation has been scientifically proven to relax your body (resulting in less mental stress), while also reducing anxiety and high blood pressure.

3. Easy on the Caffeine

Yes, we know, we know—everyone loves a nice java buzz, and that’s okay, but there’s a fine line between a small caffeine pick-me-up and a racing heart and mind that throws you into a frenzy of mental stress.

Try giving up caffeine for a while and see how you feel. And, if that’s completely out of the question for you, at least try to minimize it. You might find that lots of your mental stress mysteriously “disappears” as your caffeine intake goes down.

4. Attack Mental Stress Via the Back Door

That’s right: your body and mind are part of the whole being, and are constantly influencing and affecting each other. If you’re experiencing a lot of mental stress, try to reduce it by calming your body down—a calm body equals a calmer mind.

How do you calm your body down and reduce physical stress? A  great way to reduce physical stress (thereby reducing mental stress) is to take natural supplements that are proven to reduce stress and anxiety while lifting your mood. Three good ones to look into are kava-kava, St John’s wort, and rhodiola rosea:

  • Kava-kava is a natural plant known to have mild sedative properties, and you should be able to find it at your natural health food store or vitamin store. It’s available in capsules or liquid extract form.
  • St John’s wort is a natural flower used to treat depression. Again, it’s found at your local health store in capsules or liquid. Because it uplifts mood (enabling you to see the brighter side of all experiences) it helps relieve mental stress as well.
  • Rhodiola rosea is a natural plant shown to reduce stress and uplift mood, and Russian athletes have been using it forever. Like the other two supplements mentioned, rhodiola rosea can be found at your natural health store in capsule or liquid form.

While these supplements are all natural and can be very helpful for most people, always check with your health care provider first as they can cause side-effects depending on your current health situation etc.

5. Good Old-Fashioned Exercise

This tip has been around forever because it works. Nothing relieves mental stress like running, kickboxing—you name it. Anything super-physical will wipe out most of your mental stresses once the exercise endorphins (happy chemicals) are released into your brain.

The result: mental stress will be gone!

So, if you’re feeling overwhelmed or just plain stressed, try using some of the above tips. You can even print this out or save it to refer to regularly.
