  • The three major ways to detox would always be
    through food, exercise and sleep. A few things to
    get you in line first
  • Plan for a realistic goal Just because one has
    gorged on Gulab Jamuns or Samosas doesnt mean
    you stay hungry for the next few days for the
    so-called compensate mechanism. 1-2 lbs a week is
    a reasonable goal if you are wanting to shed that
    excess flab.
  • Eat small meals more often to keep the metabolism
    on the better side and running. This will keep
    away cravings, boost your energy and even improve
    moods.
  • Make small changes in your routine like taking a
    walk in fresh air for a few minutes, having that
    long pending spa treatment and so on.
  • Most importantly, remind yourself of the healthy
    journey that you have started on. Pat yourself
    even if its a small win.

Detox the real way!Food and water
5
  • Drink Up
  • The best way to cleanse your body is the eternal
    drink Water and loads of it. It helps to remove
    the toxins, stimulates the digestive system,
    balances the hormones and energizes the entire
    system. Enhance the flavor of water by adding
    some lemon and honey or try infused water using
    slices of cucumber, mint leaves, lemon and
    ginger. Ensure that you drink 2-3 liters per day
    depending on your requirements.
  • Other fluids
  • Though water is the best bet, adding green tea
    and yogurt to your detox list is a good idea.
    Green tea is high in polyphenols, the powerful
    antioxidants great for cleansing the system of
    impurities and toxins. Yogurt is a powerhouse of
    nutrients, especially probiotics and is a wonder
    aid for effective digestion.
  • Cut down on the consumption of caffeine (tea/
    coffee) and alcohol to gain the benefits of the
    above-mentioned fluids. Remember that alcohol is
    a source of calories and caffeine can interfere
    with essential nutrient absorption.

  • Detox juices and smoothies
  • Have some good detox smoothies to hasten the
    results. Take a seasonal fruit of your choice,
    add a few sprigs of mint, an inch of ginger,
    squeeze a fresh lemon or add two dollops of fresh
    yogurt with some honey and crushed ice. Blend the
    ingredients together and have it fresh for that
    magical feel of a clean well hydrated body. Fresh
    cold pressed fruit and vegetable juices provide a
    whole lot of phytonutrients, antioxidants,
    vitamins and minerals. Though not recommended for
    long term, especially fruit juices (for their
    high GI index and zero fiber), they can help the
    body revitalize after the festive binge.

7
  • Energy Foods
  • Kick start your day by eating an energy-rich
    foods like bananas. They are rich in natural
    sugars, and vital nutrients like potassium and
    vitamin B6 to take care of the bloated feeling.
    Add vitamin C rich foods like tomatoes, green
    leafy vegetables and sunflower seeds to boost the
    metabolism.
  • Eating more greens can help increase specific
    phytonutrient compounds which cleanse the gut and
    remove toxins including estrogenic metabolites.
    Include a green salad every day before lunch.
    This is a great way to meet your daily fiber
    requirements too. Indian gooseberry (Amla),
    beetroots, broccoli, cabbage and cauliflower have
    a range of compounds which help in detoxifying
    the body. Also add turmeric, fresh coriander and
    garlic to your foods.

8
  • Eat flaxseeds and flaxseed oil to help detox the
    body. This super food is full of fiber and Omega
    3s, important for cleansing. Dietary fiber also
    plays a major role in detoxifying the body. Oats,
    wheat bran and rice bran are high in insoluble
    fiber. Add them to your everyday list.
  • Avoid processed and junk foods which are high in
    sodium and sugar. They zap away the bodys
    energy. Have healthy carbohydrates within portion
    control.
  • The bottom line is to have a balanced diet with
    an array of foods such as fruits, vegetables,
    meats, dairy, cereals and some healthy fats.

Exercise
10
  • Post the festival week, a light exercise regime
    is easier to unwind and get back on track quickly
    instead of having a heavy or intense work out.
  • Try out a totally new exercise regime which will
    add that extra zing to keep you on track and
    motivated all the times. If you have been doing
    Pilates, try Zumba or learn a martial art for a
    change. Alternatively, set a mission of achieving
    the 10,000 steps a day on your pedometer.
    Sweating out the calories is a double boon as it
    is a great way to detoxify the body apart from
    losing the flab.
  • Incorporating yoga into your exercise routine
    helps your body eliminate toxins and revitalizes
    the mind and the body. Yoga done the right way
    will make you feel new and fresh as it helps your
    posture, builds lean muscle and is a great
    workout to help increase fitness levels.

11
Sleep
12
  • Sleep is not a mere waste of time especially when
    you have been partying late nights. A sleep
    deprived person is prone to irritability,
    tiredness, lack of patience and the ability to
    concentrate. This reflects on the skin health
    too.
  • Make proper arrangements for your beauty sleep of
    at least seven to eight hours to help the body
    recover and repair itself. Take a hot bath before
    bed. Practice relaxation techniques like
    progressive relaxation or meditation which can
    help quiet your mind so you can drift off to
    dreamland.
  • So, help your body to take care of itself. It is
    very precious and cannot be neglected on any
    grounds. Say Cheers to Healthy Living!!
