Five Great Detox Cleansing Foods

Never mind fasting, here are the top five healthy foods for detox cleansing to slim your mid-section in a hurry.

Feeling tired, bloated, sluggish or ill? Care to change your body into the perfect shape? Detox cleansing may be the answer for you, according to chef Candice Kumai. Whether you are ready to detox now or not, you can change your diet and make some big improvements in your life.  Cut alcohol, sugar, carbs, caffeine and dairy out of your diet and replace them with these top foods in order to gain some real benefits.

The first is tea. Tea leaves contain polyphenols which detoxes the body. Herbal detox teas are a special blend of detoxing and cleansing herbs. These herbal teas are normally caffeine free.

The second great food is cabbage. Cabbage, containing ninety-two percent water, is a diuretic which aids in expelling excess fluid. You may actually burn more calories by chewing the cabbage. This great detoxing food is also nutritional, containing minerals, fiber and vitamins A,E,K,C and folic acid.

The third great detox food is garlic. It is known as a superfood, although you may wish to pass eating this fine food on a date due to the order. But for detoxing, it is another story. Garlic prevents cardiovascular disease, de-stresses and lowers bad cholesterol.

Next are greens. Chlorophyll in greens rids the body of toxins accumulated through the environment and aids well in liver detoxification. They are also fine for reducing fats in blood, thinning blood, controlling blood pressure, cleansing the blood and are a great antibiotic.

The last may be somewhat of a surprise, water. A few eight ounce glasses in the morning and more throughout the day especially before, during and after working out is essential for flushing the liver and kidneys and keeping the body hydrated.
