Eat organic food
Try to eat as much organic food as possible. Eat vegetables and fruits, legumes, spinach or any other green leafy vegetable and whole grains. These foods will provide your body the nutrients without adding too many calories.
Lower sugar intake
Cutting down the sugar is also important for detox. Your body is tired and consuming sugar will force your body to work to produce more insulin. So, give your body some rest by lowering the amount of sugar you eat.
Sweat it out
Sweating it out is the best way to detox your body. You can go for a run or do home exercises to sweat out the toxins. It will increase your blood circulation and supply oxygen to every part of your body. You can also sweat it out in a sauna. It is the easiest way to detox your body.
This new year, take care of your body and live healthily.
