Here are a few changes you can implement along with the detox drinks:
Eat at the right hour – consuming healthy foods every three to four hours will keep your blood sugar at an even level. Consume snacks that contain protein in the afternoon. Some great snacks to consider include a piece of low-fat cheese, a protein bar, or some almonds with an organic apple.
Cut out alcohol – Reducing your intake will be beneficial because the liver processes alcohol before protein and carbs.
Get enough sleep – Sleep deprivation causes alterations in your ghrelin and serum leptin levels, resulting in increased hunger and appetite.
Incorporate cardio into your daily workout – Cardio helps build lean muscle. Resistance training, when done two to three times per week will help increase overall body strength.
