One diet trend that is all over TV, radio and the web is detoxification. There are many selling this supplement or that detox diet plan that is supposed to ‘clean out’ the impacted matter in your colon. Their theory is that this causes health issues, and contributes to your belly fat.
Truly, detox diet recipes don’t help you lose weight, and they can be dangerous. You really don’t have ‘impacted’ matter in your colon – ask anyone who has had a colonoscopy. This is a myth that is what I call ‘sham science’. It sounds good and reasonable, but is just not true.
Your quickest way to weight loss is to enroll in a reasonable and proven diet program that does not put your body in danger. You’ll lose weight fast and won’t have to eat all of the unpleasant foods and fluids that are part of typical detox diet recipes.
Try one of the new internet-based diet plans instead. You’ll get step-by-step instructions for diets that are proven to work, without starving or eating too much of any one food. Try one of these plans instead of a potentially dangerous and avoid the bogus claims made by those in the ‘detox’ diet area.
