A cleanse is a great way to jump start a diet or reset your body after a period of poor habits or unhealthy eating. Also known as a detox diet, a cleanse is a short-term dietary intervention designed to remove toxins from your body. While there are many different types of cleanses out there, they each follow a similar format.
Most cleanses involve a brief period of fasting followed by a diet that instructs you to only drink certain types of juices and eliminated a list of foods.
Before starting any cleanse, it is important to read up on it. Familiarize yourself with every step to make sure that it is not going to be harmful to your specific health and look into reviews of people who have tried the cleanse before to ensure that you understand what to expect during the cleanse and after.
Many people have been trying out an apple cider vinegar cleanse because it helps you to lose belly fat fast. Apple cider vinegar has been known to aid in weight loss because it helps to curb hunger and help you feel satiated. It is also low in calories but high in amino acids and antioxidants, plus it is believed to lower blood sugar and cholesterol levels.
An apple cider vinegar cleanse is less risky than other types of detoxes because it doesn’t require any fasting or eliminating any types of foods. Instead, the cleanse simply requires you to have a drink made with the vinegar three times a day for a week.
The recipe is:
- 1 to 2 tablespoons of raw, unfiltered apple cider vinegar
- 8 ounces of purified or distilled water
- 1 to 2 tablespoons sweetener (organic honey, maple syrup, or 4 drops of Stevia)
Some research has supported that an apple cider vinegar detox can help you lose weight, regulate blood sugar. Other believed benefits are lowered cholesterol, improved heart health and immune benefits, though these benefits are not backed up by hard evidence.
