New Year Improved You

As 2022 comes to an end we look forward to 2023 and the opportunity it presents for a shift in our choices. We consider if detoxes are necessary, and if actually good nutrition and hydration is a better choice.

Does your body detox when you start eating healthily?

Detoxing is a popular term these days, but it's mostly nonsense. There is no evidence that our bodies have any special detoxification mechanisms. The liver and kidneys do a great job of filtering out toxins, and there's no need for special detox diets or supplements.

However, eating healthily does have many benefits for overall health. A diet high in fruits and vegetables provides plenty of antioxidants and other nutrients that help protect against disease. So, eating healthily is definitely the best way to detoxify your body!

How can you promote good nutrition and hydration?

Good nutrition and hydration are essential for good health. Here are some tips to promote good nutrition and hydration:

1. Eat a healthy diet consisting of fruits, vegetables, whole grains, and lean protein.

2. Avoid processed foods and sugary drinks.

3. Make sure you're getting enough vitamins and minerals.

4. Stay hydrated by drinking plenty of fluids during the day, especially alkaline water.

How to be motivated to eat healthily?

There are a few things that can help motivate you to eat healthily. Firstly, keep in mind that eating healthily has many benefits, including reducing your risk of diseases such as heart disease and cancer, maintaining a healthy weight, and having more energy. Secondly, try to make eating healthy a habit by setting aside time for meals and snacks, packing snacks and lunch for work or school, and making healthy recipes a part of your regular routine.

And thirdly, make sure you have plenty of healthy foods that you enjoy in your pantry and fridge so you'll be more likely to reach for them when you're hungry. Some examples of healthy foods that are also delicious include fruits and vegetables, whole grains, legumes, nuts, seeds etc.
