Tips for Detoxing Your Body Post Diwali

Diwali is a festival of happiness, and this day is celebrated with sweets. Perhaps in the older times, people never had to worry about post-festival detox or post festive weight loss like today. This is because never in the past centuries, people at large have restricted their daily physical activities like many do today while doing a desk job, using personal vehicles, enjoying fast food, and suffering from too much stress.

Today people often complain about bloated stomach, acidity or constipation after the festivities, because weak digestive system and poor body metabolism cannot manage the excess intake of sweets and deep-fried food.

In such situations, people can adopt a detox diet to flush out the toxins from the body while giving good rest to their liver and kidney. Here are some of the key do’s and don’ts for detoxification after festive seasons.

1. Avoid Sugar Consumption

Avoid taking artificial sugar-laden food for 1 to 2 weeks. Stop consuming sweets, bakeries after Diwali so that your system gets time to recover and no more burdened with sweets.

2. Luke Warm lemon water in the morning

Begin your day by drinking a glass of warm water with half a spoon of lemon juice but do not add sugar to it. Lemon water will help your body to detox fast.

3. Stay hydrated

Drink at least 8 to 9 glass of waters every day to keep your body maximum hydrated so there is adequate fluid in the body to keep you hydrated

4. Avoid Heavy Meals

Keep your meals light to put the least pressure on your digestions, hence go for plant protein and avoid red meat that is difficult to digest.

5. Add more fiber to your meals

Fibre is a natural detoxifying agent hence, add a lot of fiber  to your diet.

Some fiber rich foods  are  cucumber, carrots, salads, sprouts and leafy green vegetables.
