The Truth Behind "Detox" Diet Plans.

The truth behind "Detox".

Detox diet plans are very popular with the "thin crowd". Not just the thin crowd, but the EXTREMELY thin crowd. Detox is becoming the new starvation diet. I personally have been asked about these diets that have "detox drinks" or Cayenne Pepper with syrup and lemons with water. These diets are usually colon cleansing of some sort, and can actually create more harm than good to your colon because they can lead to malnutrition as well as chronic colon problems in the future. Detox drinks are also very very high in potassium usually, which can cause abnormal heart rhythms.

The thing about detox diet drinks is that you are not going to be drinking them for the rest of your life.  You know that you will eventually stray from this plan, and the bottom line---it is not healthy to crash diet.  My advice. Stay away from it completely.
