Tired of Calorie-Restrictive Cleanses? Try a Teatox

Excerpt:
Have you tried a hunger-ridden juice cleanse only to break your diet in a midnight snacking frenzy after laying in bed with a rumbling tummy? If calorie-restrictive detoxing just isn’t your thing, maybe some iteration of the celebrity-endorsed Teatox is for you. Teatoxing allows you to cleanse while you eat, since being satisfied is an important part of creating a sustainable diet. “Detoxing is great, it’s just how you do it,” nutritionist and wellness coach Dorit Jaffe of Whole Healthy Glow tells Yahoo Beauty.

“[Juice cleanse programs] tend to be abused. People think if they restrict themselves from food that they will lose fat and keep that weight off.” Teatoxing has none of those negative implications since you can continue to eat. Likewise, teas are anti-inflammatory and water alone flushes toxins out of your system, so the increased intake of water associated with teatoxing will be helpful to relieve bloating and symptoms of toxins in your system. Jaffe finds that cleanses are best when the seasons are in flux — fall and spring — or to get you on the right track for a healthier eating plan. In that case, the day after Thanksgiving is the perfect time to gear up for a teatox.

I Tried a Charcoal-and-Lemon Detox Cleanse For 2 Weeks (And It Didn't Suck)

Excerpt:
I've never been the type of person to try a cleanse. If I can't have a glass of Malbec or copious amounts of cheese, it's pretty much not an option for me. But then I heard about the Dirty Lemon cleanse, a juice that can be added to your usual diet without the need for any other changes. There are no rules, no limitations, no schedule. The only tips the company offers? "It works best on a full stomach. So, drink post-pancakes," the included literature advises. Now that I can handle. And then came another nudge in the right direction: the juice, a blend of water, raw cold-pressed lemon juice, activated charcoal sourced from coconut shells, dandelion root extract, and ginger root extract, is absolutely freakin' delicious. Upon first sip, I knew this was something I could get on board with.

Unlike many sugar-laden juice cleanses, Dirty Lemon contains only one gram of sugar per 16-oz bottle. It tastes like unsweetened lemonade, which, if you're a Sour Patch Kids fiend like me, is code for mouthwateringly addictive. (If you couldn't handle War Heads back in fifth grade, you might not love it; only one of four editor/taste-testers coiled from the pucker-inducing taste.) And though there's something initially off-putting about sipping black liquid, you don't really notice the charcoal. Be sure to give the bottle a good shake before you open it, and you shouldn't notice any grittiness (though, full disclosure, I did sip up a clump of charcoal that had congealed at the bottom once).

An Attempt at a One-Week Juice Cleanse

Excerpt:
It’s a warm November morning and I’m staying in bed as long as possible to avoid my first of multiple juices that I will be solely sipping on for the next week.

As I drink my beet, apple, carrot, ginger liquid breakfast, I reflect on why I keep falling for health trends and put myself through this misery. Since I can remember, I’ve always worried about my health. I have this weird dynamic where the constant feed of health fads and “treat yo self” come together to form what my diet usually is — not healthy.

We all struggle with our health growing up; I think it’s a vital part of accepting yourself. So here’s the story of how my newest venture went and whether I think it’s worth it for you to follow this path.

Juice cleanses: they’ve been around for a long time in comparison to other health trends that die out in a couple years. Even our little Kingston has multiple juice shops. If people are making a living off of this, there must be something there, right?
