Best Ways to Kickstart Your Holiday Detox
It's that time of the year again! The time where we promise ourselves that this year is the year we get into shape and get healthy again. But it's always so much easier said than done.
 
How can you ensure your success? Well, there are a few tips and tricks.
 
Here we'll be discussing how to kickstart your detox, which can help you stick to new diets and dietary changes a little easier.

Clean our your pantry

A little preparation will go a long way. It's easier to make changes if you don't have a pantry-full of tempting no-nos. A couple of days before you plan to start your detox, cleanse, or healthy eating changes, clean out your pantry and go shopping for some good stuff.

Bye-bye sugars, flours & refined empty calories

It's pretty common knowledge that refined sugars, flours, and empty calories are bad for us. They can be especially detrimental to someone who's about to undergo a detox. They not only counteract what you're trying to do, they can lead you straight back into bad habits.

Fill your fridge with whole foods

Getting fresh, whole fruits and veggies, lean proteins, and whole grains. You'll want healthy foods that will help you feel better. Having a couple of sweet fruits like strawberries and bananas can help with the sweet cravings when and if they hit. Adding a few superfoods like goji berries, blue berries and acai can be a great way to boost flavor and health!

Ditch the drinks

Alcohol is just another empty carb that will tempt you. Not only that, but it can lead to poor food choices - such as the fatty foods we crave when getting over a hangover.

Get some vitamins

Vitamins are a great way to supplement your diet, especially after a detox. Getting some great probiotics, a basic multivitamin, and some lecithin will not go amiss. They not only help you to feel better, they can help keep you healthier and on the right track.

Prepare for the worst

If you've never done a detox or cleanse, you may not know what to expect. But just like with anything that's not so good for you, you can go through withdrawals from things like sugar and caffeine. This means that while you will feel better than you ever have after a couple of weeks, the first 2 - 4 can be uncomfortable. You may want to premake a few meals, get a couple of great books or shows lined up, and get an extra comfy pillow. It'll likely feel like you have the flu for the first couple of days.

Now you know what to expect and how to prepare for your upcoming detox.
 
Don't worry - while this may be the "worst" part of starting your new health regiment, the best is yet to come (and totally worth it!)
