Don’t Detox!

A detox diet (i.e.“crash diet”) can actually raise stress hormones which may lead to a binge later. Any weight loss is mostly water.

Science does not support detox diets to remove toxins from your body - that is the job of your liver & kidneys

To jump start your weight loss:

  • aim for 3 small meals from nutrient rich foods
  • fruit as snacks
  • 1200-1500 calorie
