The Truth About Cleanses and Detox Diets

The following is my personal view and is intended for informational purposes only, it is not medical advice.  Always see your doctor before making health decisions.

Although Cleanses and Detox Diets are popular, they are a BAD choice!

These kind of diets are not really diets and it has not yet been proven that they actually detox or flush your body of toxins.  Subjecting your body to a cleanse or detox is risky, unsafe, and unhealthy.  Your detox diet or cleanse may do you more harm than good.


What you should know about detox diets and cleanses

These kind of diets are short term.  They are a way to lose weight fast and that is what makes them popular.  That is also what makes them unhealthy.  You cannot stay on this kind of diet for long.  

Many of these diets are a 'fast', which means no food.  Some allow you to eat fruits and veggies, but every detox and cleanse that I have looked at, will leave you hungry and feeling weak.  

You are likely to be poorly nourished during this kind of diet.  This means that you can expect lack of energy, low blood sugar, aching muscles, nausea, dizziness, light headedness, and fatigue.  

Whatever weight that you lose will soon return and will probably bring friends.  You are setting your self up to weigh more that when you start!

If you want a cleanse or detox, there are many 'clean eating' diets that will naturally and healthily help you to lose weight and detox without negative or harmful side effects.



I have not found a detox diet worth recommending.  Of all the healthy ways to get your body clean and healthy, detox diets and cleanses are NOT one of them.  Avoid detox diets and cleanses.

My friends, thank you for reading.  Much success on your weight loss quest.

Kindest Regards.,

your body and your

Short Term!

Detoxes and Cleanses are
short term solutions to
weight loss. 

Associating weight loss
with short term is a
normal weight loss
mistake.  It is not
your fault.  You are a
victim, all with the rest
of  us, you are a victim of
unscrupulous marketing
that portrays short term
weight loss as a good

Unfortunately, you are
preparing your body and
your mind to think of
losing weight as a short
term goal rather than a
life long change.

A short term solution for
losing weight is NOT a

#1:  If you have a 'short
term' mindset, that is
exactly what you will get. 
Ultimately, you are teaching
your mind and body to
associate losing weight with
'short term'. 

#2:  As you probably already
know, once you end your
short term choice for weight
loss, the pounds soon return.
Often the pounds that return
bring friends.  In other words,
chances are that you will
end up gaining more
weight than you lost.

#3:  This kind of approach to
weight loss, creates a
YoYo Effect which is not a
healthy way to lose weight.


A cleanse or detox for the
sake of cleansing or
detoxing your body and NOT
for losing weight, may have
merit.  On the other hand,
there are no clinical trials
or studies, that prove that a
cleanse or detox actually does
