How to Detox your Body with Food Combinations Keeping your body in good shape requires a lot of things. One of the first to consider is keeping a proper diet, which can be complicated especially when it requires you to eat beyond your preferences. Good examples of a good diet are the detox diets, which oblige you to eat few food groups for a time. Although these are said to be helpful, a lot of times they can be dangerous and cause long term health effects if not done in the right way. This following is a safe and easy way to do detox, which is focused on combining different foods at a time.

Foods that Cleanse 1. Water – known to have a flushing power, water is good to detoxify the body and maintain a good state of hydration. It is still best to drink 8 glasses of water every day no matter what diet you are following. 2. Fruit – fruits are packed with vitamins and antioxidants to keep our body in great shape and a healthy state. 3. Vegetables – with its high nutrients and low-calorie profile, vegetables are used in almost all weight-loss diets, including detox ones. 4. Whole grains – these food items are beneficial to get sufficient soluble and insoluble fibers that are very important to get rid of unwanted substances in the body. 5. Good proteins – low-fat proteins and vegetables proteins also provide nutrition as you go along with a detox diet. 6. Healthy oils – vegetable oils should be consumed, as they do not contain harmful substances, which may interrupt your detoxification regimen.

Trophology - The Science of Combining Foods This science of combining food goes with a study that each food has a certain substance that when digested, produces amounts of alkalinity and/or acidity, so when eaten together with other foods that contradicts to the digestion, it can cause inefficient absorption in the body. In simpler sense, the yin and yang of diets is the bottom line of Trophology.

No-go Combinations: 1. Carbohydrates + Carbohydrates 2. Carbohydrates + Acid Fruit 3. Carbohydrates + Proteins 4. Carbohydrates + Sugar 5. Protein + Acid Fruit 6. Protein + Protein 7. Protein + Fat 8. Melons + other foods Detoxifying the body with the right amounts of good food combinations are essential to maintain health while flushing out harmful substances. It may seem a bit confusing to look at the combinations above, so here is an easier way to follow. 1. No meat and carbohydrates together – this means no to eating meat and pasta, chicken and potatoes and any kinds of meat with carbohydrates. 2. Eat fruits in a separate meal – they can be eaten for breakfast or snacks. An apple for snacks or a combination of fruits, like apple and cranberry, are okay as long as they are not combined with carbs, fats, and other foods. 3. Put together starchy vegetables and healthy proteins – For example fresh salads with nuts or steamed veggies with cheese and whole grain breads are good to combine. 4. Be aware of the acidic foods. – It inhibits the digestion of protein and starch. Acid foods are tomatoes, lemons, limes, oranges, pineapples, grapefruits, strawberries and cranberries. Sub-acids are melons, apples, pears, peaches, plums, grapes, cherries, raspberries, blackberries. 5. Eat melons alone – in Trophology, melons require no digestion and passes quickly through the stomach without excreting acids and alkalines.

Considerations before taking a detoxification diet Before Detoxing, be sure to check out the considerations below. Ideally this kind of diet is good for people without any medical conditions, since this has minimal calories and nutrients that may compromise health if taken without doctor’s consent.

1. Consult your Doctor Some health problems are asymptomatic. This means there is no feeling of illness or any physical manifestations seen while a condition or disease develops. It is always safe to seek the advice of your doctor so you won’t be aggravating any health conditions. Generally, you should not start a detox program if you are: • Pregnant • Breastfeeding • Currently ill or recovering from illness • Taking medications prescribed by your physician • Undergoing medications for any health conditions

2. Know your Body No one knows your body but you. Consider observing your body on how it reacts to hunger or, in case you had undergone a low-calorie diet, the changes in lesser food intake. Some develops altered metabolism, hyperacidity and other health problems. If you did not experience any, then you can go to number 3.

3. Check your Daily Schedule Doing a diet includes lesser physical activity, simply because fewer calories are taken. If you usually have a busy lifestyle, even on weekends, you may want to adjust a day or two to give way to do detox. If you are okay with this, then proceed to the last consideration.

4. Potential Symptoms There are also some potential symptoms, which you may experience while doing Detox. These symptoms may include one or more of the following: nausea, flatulence, diarrhea and headache. This diet will also increase your urination and bowel movements. As toxins leave your body it may also give you bad breath (from the lungs) and rashes (from the skin). These symptoms may be temporary and will eventually disappear as the body adjusts to the diet. If the problems persist, better visit your doctor for advice or choose a detox plan that is more suitable for you.

Transition from Detox to Regular Meal After 2 days of detoxifying, it is necessary to have a transition diet. A transition diet is important to avoid gastrointestinal distress since the body has just regulated its functions to eating mostly fiber. A slow upgrade should be done first before going back to your usual meal. Here are step-by-step tips to do a transition diet; this phase will also take about 2 days depending on how your body easily adjusts to solid foods. 1. Begin eating carbohydrate food items that are easy to digest. Examples are oatmeal, mashed potato, rice, pasta and noodles. 2. Incorporate dairy products that have low fat content gradually. 3. Do not eat greasy foods for awhile like hamburgers, fries and chips. Also avoid carbonated drinks. 4. Begin eating green leafy vegetable, salad greens with vinaigrette. 5. Drink lots of water. Here’s an example of a transition diet: Day 1 Breakfast

Day 2 1/2 cup oatmeal

Breakfast

2 slices whole wheat bread

1 piece banana AM Snack

1 oz light crackers

AM Snack

1/2 cup fruit juice Lunch

1 cup pasta with marinara sauce

PM Snack

8 oz plain yogurt 1 glass of water

Dinner

1/2 cup fruit juice

1 oz light crackers 1/2 cup fruit juice

Lunch

1 serving chicken stew 1 slice bread

PM Snack

1 oz broiled tuna 1/2 cup mashed potato

Scrambled Egg

8 oz plain yogurt 1 glass of water

Dinner

1 oz meatloaf 1/2 cup buttered carrots and cucumber 1/2 cup fruit juice

The transition diet can be extended for more than 2 days, if you feel that your body has not coped up with the changes yet. After this, you can now go back to usual meals. If you have undergone a detox diet to initiate a weight loss, you better start choosing foods afterwards with low-fat and lower calories, since overeating after detox may lead to yo-yo dieting, a cycle of weight loss and gain due to an unsustainable diet program. To determine the amount you need, visit your doctor, nutritionist, or contact our personal coaches on www.formezones.com.

In Summary A detox Diet is not simple to start since you need to consider your body’s ability to cope up with drastic changes. To better be safe than sorry, here is a quick recap of what you need to do before, during, and after a detox diet. 1. Begin a prep-up diet which mainly consists of high-fiber food items, low fat proteins, fruits and vegetables. No fried foods and high-fat food items should be consumed at this time. Do this for 2 days. 2. Progress to Detox Diet. This should all be in fresh and raw form that consists of water, vegetables with veggies, fruits, nuts and yogurt. These can be made into salads, soups, juices, etc. 3. Take a quick look at the foods to be avoided while undergoing the diet. Foods to be avoided include high-fat meats and dairy products, some sweeteners and additives, refined carbohydrates and processed foods. 4. Lessen physical activity and stress as you progress. With lesser intake, it is best to avoid physical, mental, and even emotional problems that you may experience. Focus on the diet by keeping yourself busy and focus on feel-good activities you like. 5. After detox, undergo a transition diet. This will help your body recuperate from the drastic changes it has undergone. 6. While in transition, eat foods that are easily digested. Some of which are dairy products, potatoes, yams, pastas, etc. Avoid fried and greasy foods. 7. After 2 days or so, your system is now cleansed and you can go back to your usual meal. Remember to avoid yo-yo dieting by choosing the right amount and kinds of food you eat. A diet can be a good kickstart to a general change into a healthier lifestyle. Living a clean life does not only happen by personal grooming or maintaining a spotless kitchen. There are times when our body needs help in renewing its inner cleansing, so we can attain better quality of life. Doing a detox diet can be a good regimen, whether it may be liquid, all-fruit, or all-veggie types of foods. “If you put lots of good things into your body, you won’t need to worry about clearing things out.”
