Ahh spring! The perfect hi-five to warm weather and a see-ya-later door slam on the chilly fingers of winter. It’s the natural season of renewal and rebirth for all things on earth. Treetops green up, flowers blossom, caterpillars emerge as pollen-hungry butterflies flitting around, showing off their new wings. We humans are no different. With longer days comes the desire to rejuvenate ourselves. We spring clean our homes and trade coats for sunglasses. But sometimes we forget to extend our squeaky cleaning to ourselves. I’m not talking about just showers and scrubs. A deep clean from the inside out. A total reset. And it all starts with what we eat in our daily diets.
For those who get scared, like me, when they hear the word diet (NOOOOO!), let’s think of “diet” in this case, as what you are eating day to day. NOT a gimmicky, unbalanced, unsustainable calorie deficit over a short period of time to get even shorter-term results.
A DETOX DIET is a great way to clean out your system, it can be done anytime, and if it’s done right – is totally delicious, sustainable and the opposite of cleanse-starving yourself. A Detox Diet Reset cleanses you from the inside and will be like hitting a “reset” button on your inner systems. Here are 5 benefits to using a detox diet to Reset yourself for spring (in addition to kicking toxins to the curb).
1. Clear Skin
Our skin is a major system in our body that happens to be on the outside. It’s an outward expression of what’s going on inside. Eating healthier, plant-based foods in a Diet Detox Reset will help glowify your skin and give you that dewy refreshed look all day long.
2. Lose Weight
Whole plant-based foods are great because they are calorie dense and packed with toxin-destroying nutrients. The result – you get fuller faster and stay satisfied with less food. A reset detox diet uses these foods for double duty. They naturally work easier with your body to get rid of toxins and because you are energizing your body with less food, you will sustainably lose weight.
3. More Energy
A detox diet reset helps your body with nutrients, efficiency, and energy on a cellular level. When you get that proper, ground-level, molecular reset, one of the results is more energy tingling from head to toe. Feelin’ good, feelin’ great, skipping and smiling because you are properly fueling your body the natural way!
4. Healthy Heart
Your diet detox reset foods will give you delicious, full flavor without skipping a beat. All this feel-good running through your body also pumps up your heart. Eating more of green good stuff from the earth lowers your bad cholesterol and you reduce you risk for heart disease and other chronic diseases in the same bite.
5. Less Stress
It’s impossible to cut out stress from your life, but we can give our bodies the best shot at managing it and in some areas, eliminating it. Eating plant-based for a body reset is the ultra lux-primo fuel to run your body like a Swiss timepiece. With your systems running tip-top, you create less stress inside and can keep stress in those running late in rush hour moments – or MAYBE you’ll start daily books-on-taping it to the point of enjoying traffic 🙂
Looking at these benefits, you can see how the body and mind come together in powerful harmony and it’s pretty clear it starts on the inside – with the foods we eat. Our bodies are perfect filtration and adaptation machines. We could live off gummy bears if we had to. But eating a plant-based diet is like giving our bodies premium, unleaded, solar-powered, turbine-in-a-windstorm, never-running-out-of-energy kind of fuel for life. We just run better on plants.
