10 Foods That Help Detoxify the Body


If you went a little overboard and are now feeling the urge to eat clean, you've come to the right place. Since most detoxes are usually calorie-deprivation diets in disguise, it's wise to steer clear of them, but not to worry — there are still ways to get your body back on track. Exercising, cutting out alcohol and refined sugars, and eating a healthy diet do wonders. A little extra help doesn't hurt either.

Here are 10 healthy foods with natural cleansing properties. Include them in your next meal and get rid of that extra junk left over from the big feast.

I wish the article would tell us the best way of cooking them too, I.e, I love artichokes, but i boiled them for a long time and i imagine this process kills all the vitamins... is the other way to cook it without losing the health nutrients?

Warm lemon water is a great way to alkalize the body. These are great tips that can be done a lifetime & not just during a "detox" http://fullbodytransformation.wordpress.com/

It's weird how this is a detox list, this should be titled "Foods everyone should be eating on a regular basis."

What a great list! After a couple weeks of holiday parties and cookie gift boxes I'm trying to cut back on refined sugar, so these added suggestions are so helpful!

My mom always makes me have a glass of warm water with lemon when I wake up! She also suggests warming honey in a heat proof bowl over a stove, squeeze some limes on top then mix and pour into a glass of warm water and stir...It has quite the acrid taste, but it definitely cleanses your system!
