There are dozens of detoxification, or cleansing diets, from juice diets to liver detox. Detox diets are extremely popular, but there’s no scientific evidence that they work, according to the Mayo Clinic .
Detox diets are advertised as a way to remove toxins from the body. Specific detox diets vary — but typically a period of fasting is followed by a strict diet of raw vegetables, fruit and fruit juices, and water. In addition, some detox diets advocate using herbs and other supplements along with colon cleansing to empty the intestines.
Some people report feeling more focused and energetic during and after detox diets.
However, there’s little evidence that detox diets actually remove toxins from the body. The benefits from a detox diet may come from avoiding highly processed foods that have solid fats and added sugar.
If you’re considering a detox diet, get the OK from your doctor first. It’s also important to consider possible side effects, which can include:
• Vitamin and mineral deficiencies.
• Cramping, bloating, nausea and vomiting, if colon cleansing is part of the diet plan.
Quick weight-loss or fad diets aren’t a good long-term solution. For healthy weight loss and lasting results, it’s best is to eat a healthy diet based on fruits and vegetables, whole grains, and lean sources of protein.
