Sugar and Salt Detox

A balanced nutrition is important for maintaining the regular function of all the structures in the body. While many people follow restricted diets, most commonly centered around weight loss, following the discipline closely and avoiding the cravings can be challenging. These nutritional goals are not impossible to achieve although, starting out by detoxifying the body can help.

First and foremost, in order to detox your body, one must begin by breaking the sugar cycle. Ultimately, the key to detox the body of sugar is to simply avoid consuming it all together rather than moderating its consumption. Sugar stimulates cravings which can lead people to eat more and in turn stimulate more cravings. If you can avoid sugar for three full days, your cravings will improve and settle down.

After you’ve dealt with the sugar cravings, detoxifying the body of salt should follow. At this point in the detox, it’s important to avoid the consumption of foods containing large amounts of salt for a couple of weeks. The goal of this type of detox is to maintain an individual’s cravings under control in order to avoid making poor nutritional choices.

After completing the detox, fill up your daily meals with plenty of fruits and vegetables, lean meats, as well as whole grains and a smaller portion of dairy products and you would have achieved your health goals and managed unhealthy food cravings.

A large percentage of food products sold on the market contain large amounts of sugar and salts. While higher quantities of these are unhealthy to our daily nutritional intake, a majority of people choose to consume these over the healthier options. Both sugar and salt can stimulate cravings, usually increasing the consumption of these type of products. By detoxing the body from sugar and salt, individuals can achieve their desired nutritional goals.
