Spring means the return of the beautiful days! In a little over two months, summer will already be here. The sun makes us want to change our way of life. We have to take advantage of spring to start off on the right foot. And yes, the expression "spring cleaning" should not be interpreted literally! After spending the winter warm under the comforter every night and eating comfort food, our bodies now want to eliminate excess and get moving! So the time for a detox has arrived... Don't worry, we'll give you some tips!
To eliminate toxins, it is very important to hydrate a lot. We advise you to drink at least 1,5 liter of water per day. Drink water in the morning, then green tea, the ally of detox. If you are more of a coffee drinker, don't worry, caffeine also helps to evacuate toxins. However, don't overdo it because the excitement caused by an excess of caffeine promotes stress, enemy number one of a detox cure. Throughout the day, remember to drink, preferably between meals. Water combined with lemon juice is an excellent combo to drain your body. Infusions and herbal teas are excellent slimming allies, remember to drink them at the end of the afternoon and in the evening before going to bed.
It is also very important to control your diet. Be careful, the goal here is not to eat less than before. The goal is to eat the same quantities as before, but to change the foods. Instead of eating foods that are high in calories and low in nutrients, choose foods that are low in calories and high in nutrients! Replace starchy foods with seasonal vegetables. Stop eating processed industrial foods, eat only natural products, not necessarily organic: vegetables, legumes, meat, fish, shellfish, fruits, oilseeds, etc. If you are afraid that your dishes will be bland without cream, add soy cream, which is much lower in calories. To replace an industrial ketchup sauce in your burger, tomato sauce plus spices and you're done! Let your culinary creativity speak for itself and pay attention to your relationship with your body and your relationship with nature.
Also think about food supplements to maintain your energy! Even the most balanced diet in the world will remain incomplete on certain points. To make the most of your vitality, food supplements such as spirulina, magnesium, chlorella or even vitamins are your best allies. You just have to think about it.
To regenerate your body, it is important to think about moving. Walk more, go for a run once a week, go for bike rides, do sports and outdoor activities. If you don't live too far away, go for a walk near the sea as much as possible. The sea air is the best remedy against all ills and the best ally for positivity.
Take care of yourself, pamper your body, moisturize your skin, relax to the maximum. The body is the reflection of our well-being. Excessive weight is often linked to stress. It is important to take care of your mind if you want to take care of your body. Take care of yourself and above all treat yourself. And don't forget, in any case you will be at the top for this summer!
