If you feel tired all the time and have no energy, or have dark circles under the eyes and the skin is really dry, then you are in need of a detox.
For optimal results, do it twice a year for 10 days. If you can get used to it for this long, try to do it at least over the weekends.
Be more active, and enjoy your morning walk. You can also swim or jog. Drink plenty of water and tea. Dandelion, nettle, and birch tea are nice alternatives you should try.
Drink 250ml of warm water right after you wake up. That’s the base of your detox regimen.
Breakfast: 250ml warm water, 1 cup of oat flakes and a tablespoon of flax seeds, ½ cup fresh blueberries, 250ml Greek yoghurt or green tea, 200ml low-fat yogurt or almond milk
Lunch: 250ml water, 250 grilled hake, Swiss chard and extra virgin olive oil + 1 roasted potato, 2 cups of salad (tomato, green, arugula), 1 small banana and a slice of melon
Snack: 250ml water, 1 apple, ¼ cup pumpkin seeds, 180ml yoghurt
Dinner: 2 cups of salad (dress with lemon juice and extra virgin olive oil), ½ cup steam-cooked veggetables (spinach and broccoli are nice options), green smoothie (use spinach celery, banana and apple), 250ml water or anise tea
Breakfast: 1 cup oat flakes, 200ml almond milk or low-fat yogurt, 1 tablespoon of flax seeds, 1 pear and green tea
