Have you ever wanted to drop the pounds fast? Who hasn’t right? You have probably been told by everyone from your doctor to your mom that there is no way to lose that much weight in such a small amount of time, but a detox diet could make it possible.
People who use detox diets swear by them and say that they see the results promised. Even Dr. Oz has created his own detox diet plans that can allow you to lose weight quickly while getting rid of harmful toxins that hide in your body.
Dr. Oz’s newest detox diet promises to not only help you lose up to 10lbs in 10 days, but to also improve your metabolism and provide you with more energy. The diet claims to give your metabolism a complete makeover so you can burn fat and lose weight faster than with other diets.
The diet plan was created by a guest host, Dr. Hyman and the diet plan promises to:
-Lose up to 10 pounds
-Reverse chronic health problems such as joint point and type 2 diabetes
-Alleviate brain fog and allergies
-Prevent conditions such as acne and headaches
-Help autoimmune disease
The 10 day detox diet promotes easting healthy and getting rid of processed foods and empty calories. It also requires dieters to remove certain foods from their diets including:
-Processed foods unless it is a canned whole food such as sardines or artichokes with only a few real ingredients such as water or salt
-Any food or drink that contains added sugar (including honey, molasses, agave, maple syrup, organic cane juice or artificial sweeteners), especially any sugar-sweetened beverages or fruit juices
-Anything that contains hydrogenated oils and refined vegetable oils (like corn or soybean oil)
-Any foods with artificial sweeteners, preservatives, additives, coloring, or dyes
-Anything sugar or flour based (cookies, cakes, candies, etc.)
-Grains (rice, oats, quinoa) and all foods made from flours (crackers, pasta, bread, pretzels, etc.)
-Starches (sweet potato, potato, squash, parsnip, beets, etc.)
-Beans and legumes (chickpeas, lentils, peanuts, kidney beans, etc.)
-Dairy (yogurt, sour cream, cheese, milk, etc.)
-Coffee and anything caffeinated (tea, soft drinks, lattes, etc.)
-Alcohol (wine, beer, spirits, etc.)
As with any diet, it is important to exercise while dieting and afterwards. After you have finished the 10 day diet, you should also continue to eat healthy. Like any diet, the 10 day detox diet should be used as a way to boost your weight loss and get you started on living a healthy lifestyle.
