Essentially, detoxing is the process of removing the toxins from the body, which happens by boosting certain organs, in particular the liver, kidneys and intestines. To promote your body's detox, you need to refuel your body with healthy nutrients whilst avoiding foods that will reverse the good work you're doing. By simplifying your diet, eating more raw fruit and veg and avoiding greasy, fatty foods, you'll allow your body to rid itself of impurities and restore its natural balance. You'll feel healthier, your skin will look brighter, you'll have more energy and this will allow healthy weight loss.
