Post Diwali detox tips: Do’s and don’ts

After a heavy and calorie-laden festive week, it is essential to detox in a safe and healthy way to get the body and system back on track. Today people often complain about bloated stomach, acidity or constipation after the festivities, because of a weak digestive system and poor body metabolism.

Here are some of the key do’s and don’ts for detoxification after festive seasons:

Avoid artificial sugar

Post-Diwali, avoid taking artificial sugar-laden food for 1 to 2 weeks. Say no to consuming sweets, bakeries, and colas after Diwali so that your system gets time to recover and is no more burdened with sweets.

Hot lemon water in the morning
Post Diwali, begin your day by drinking a glass of warm water with half a spoon of lemon juice but do not add sugar to it. The lemon water will help your body to detox fast.

Stay hydrated
Drink at least 8 to 9 glasses of water every day to keep your body maximum hydrated and so there is adequate fluid in the body to flush out the toxins through urine and sweat.

Avoid meat
Post Diwali, keep your meals light to put the least pressure on your digestions, hence go for plant protein and avoid red meat that is difficult to digest.

Add more fibre
Fibre is a natural detoxifying agent hence, add a lot of fibre to your diet, post Diwali. You can do it by adding cucumber, carrots, salads, sprouts, and by adding more leafy green vegetables.
