Detox Diets for Vegetarians

The pressures of the modern lifestyle affect our overall health and wellness. From fatigue and poor digestion to mental confusion and allergies, the impacts of poor diet and lifestyle are many. Detoxification is a highly beneficial process that works to rid the body of harmful toxins and unwanted substances. Taking up a detoxification treatment can help to improve the functioning of your digestive system as well as overall wellness.

The best practices for vegetarians to adopt for a detoxification diet are:

  • Increase Fibre: Increasing the fibre intake helps to detoxify the colon and improve digestion. Some foods to include in the diet are fruits, leafy vegetables and beans.
  • Stay Hydrated: Along with increasing daily water intake, it is also important to consume fruit juices, herbal teas, coconut water and lemon water.
  • Eliminate Unhealthy Food: Remove food items that contain trans fats, saturated fats, refined sugar and processed food from your diet.
  • Eat Lighter Meals: Heavy meals can increase the burden on the digestive system. Consume nutrient-rich foods that are light and easy to digest.

There are various different types of detoxification diets that can be adopted. Consult a doctor before adopting one that best suits your requirements. The common diet forms include:

  • Regular Meals: This diet requires you to drink something or eat a light meal roughly every 90 minutes. This prevents blood sugar levels from dropping and helps to maintain energy throughout the day.
  • Intermittent Fasting: This involves fasting for a single day of the week. This process helps to rid the body of toxins and resets the body on a routine basis.
  • Liquid Diet: Those who take up this diet consume only liquid foods for a period of a few days. This helps to improve digestion and flush out toxins.
  • Reduced Meals: This diet involves eating meals only twice a day. This helps to improve the absorption of nutrients and is also said to help regulate the sleep cycle.
