DETOX DIETS

Do you need to follow a detox diet?  Plain and simple, NO πŸ™…πŸ»‍β™€οΈβ˜οΈ

Fortunately we have these 3 marvelous organs that naturally detox our bodies 24/7😱, they are called the lungs, kidneys and liverπŸ™ŒπŸ˜

The kidneys remove toxins from the blood and excrete them through urine
🚽
The lungs remove gases (like CO2) from the blood and we exhale them out
πŸ’¨πŸ—£οΈ
The liver removes toxins from the blood and gut and are excreted through stools
πŸ’© 

Please don't believe the "amazing"πŸ™„ benefits that detox diets advertise such us weight loss, detoxing your liver, cleansing your gut of bad bacteria, improved digestion, improving skin etc.βŒπŸ™ˆ
.
There is NO SCIENTIFIC EVIDENCE supporting the benefits of a detox diet!!πŸ”ŽπŸ“–
You are more likely to end up with vitamin deficiencies, diarrhoea, dehydration, low blood sugar and a bad relationship with food when following a detox diet.πŸ˜’πŸ“‰πŸ™…πŸ»‍♀️
