Day TWO (✌🏼) and week ONE (😅) of our EIGHT week challenge !! #Detoxifying 🔪🥒
F45’s ’Spring Training’ is designed to detox and alkalise the body, which will do ⚡️wonders⚡️for your metabolism and energy levels🔋. This part of the challenge is based around detoxing your body and ridding it of any 🚫unwanted toxins🚫that could potentially prevent you from getting the most out of your training routine (🏋🏻♂️)and diet.
Certain foods can assist with the detoxification process and help to restore balance:
It gets said a whole lot but that’s because it works! More and more people are jumping on the ‘lemon water in the morning’ bandwagon to kick-start their digestion and flush out any toxins. Lemons assist with the digestive process by helping food move through the gastrointestinal tract smoothly. The acids found in lemon juice also help your body absorb more nutrients resulting in more weight loss and better health overall. If you don’t like the idea of lemon water, drizzle some on your vegetables, salad or protein.
Garlic is renowned for being a detoxification powerhouse. It stimulates the liver to produce enzymes that help to flush the body of toxins and is great for immunity. Add a hint of garlic to your lunch and dinner and you will really reap the benefits.
You may have hated it as a kid but you need to love it now! Broccoli is significantly high in antioxidants that help detox enzymes in the digestive tract and support liver health. Definitely, add some broccoli to your detox routine for maximum results.
Sipping on green tea instead of a coffee can have profound effects on your overall health and weight. The super beverage is loaded with special antioxidants called catechins, which detoxify the body and rid any harmful free radicals. Research has also linked green tea to the reduction of belly fat when combined with exercise. Pass us a glass!
They are absolutely delicious and so good for your body. This fruit contains a high amount of fiber and good fats, which help to lubricate the digestive system, reduce inflammation and eliminate any toxins.
