Swapping junk food and alcohol for fruit, vegetables, and water will cut your calorie intake and help you lose a little weight. It’s also a good move for your detox and general health if you stick to it over the long term, especially if you combine your dietary changes with regular exercise.
Detox that involves the use of laxatives, diuretics, and fasting will also dramatically cut back on how many calories you absorb or consume, and can result in rapid weight loss. But this type of weight loss can also be achieved by having a sauna. The weight lost from fasting, laxatives, and diuretics— and from sweating profusely in a sauna—is predominantly from a reduction in the amount of water stored in your body. In other words, you weigh less.
But you will also be dehydrated, and not necessarily any healthier. Severe calorie restriction can also trigger the breakdown of muscle to provide fuel for essential functions. If you use the bathroom scales as a measure of success, then short-term detox diets may appear successful.
If you are also concerned about losing body fat, staying strong, and feeling well, then a longer-term lifestyle change will be considerably more successful. It’s also worth considering that any weight lost without exercise is likely to return in nearly all cases.
The idea of a detox diet as a weight loss tool is embraceable, but whilst such a diet may cause initial weight loss, it is certainly not a long term solution. As a general rule, if your energy intake is less than the calories you burn, you will lose weight.
Due to the extreme calorie restriction when on a detox diet, you are bound to drop at least a few pounds. However, as a detox diet is very low in energy, during the initial stages, this is likely to be due to a loss of water.
A healthier way to lose weight? There is no one diet or detox that is suitable for everyone, so it is important to discuss with a dietician or doctor before embarking on any extreme or unusual weight loss regime. In general, a healthy weight loss of about one to two pounds per week can be achieved simply by reducing your calories slightly and increasing physical activity levels.
A healthy diet that is low in saturated fat and refined carbohydrates, as well as high in whole grains, unsaturated fats, fruit and vegetables is ideal for optimum health and well-being.

DKN Vibration Trainers are widely used in homes, physical therapy, rehabilitation, gyms and professional sports. Without having a 30-minute workout and a 30-minute massage, you can achieve the same results in less than 15 minutes while standing still and watching TV!
Similar to a massage or workout, a whole body vibration exercise machine helps improve blood circulation and enhances lymphatic function. When the lymphatic system gets blocked, it fails to eliminate toxins that can cause depression, fatigue, and chronic health problems like joint and muscular pain.
Proper lymphatic drainage prevents the accumulation of harmful toxins in the body’s systems and increases the production of good hormones, including endorphins, serotonin, and collagen, and helps improve flexibility and range of motion. This reduces stress and physical pain while achieving a slimmer and tighter body.
