The story goes like this: by only eating certain foods in crazy combinations — with a few other stipulations — your body will “detox” and get rid of all the bad stuff stored inside it, leaving you with a clean slate.

Almost always, there are fancy drinks, pills, or special supplements involved—“the secret recipe.”

One of the most popular detoxes says drinking six to twelve glasses daily of a maple syrup, lemon juice, water, cayenne pepper lemonade while taking daily laxatives is the answer. They call this one “The Master Cleanse.”

No doubt, when you do these detoxes, you feel amazing. And it’s this feeling that confirms the power of the detox.

It must be working, right?

Do you want in on the secret?

The “detox feeling” you get during these programs is really about what you’re NOT eating anymore — it has little to do with these stupid juice concoctions.

If all you drink is juice and whatever else they say, then you’re NOT consuming grains, gluten, inflammatory seed oils, dairy (which you could be sensitive to), and other ANTI foods.

This gives your body a huge break!

And that’s the secret.

Physiologically, your liver is what “detoxes” you. There’s nothing special about these drinks or protocols. If you were to instead focus on eating real food, cutting down on alcohol, getting more sleep, and moving your body in a healthy manner, your body would “detox” just the same.

Focusing on nourishing your body with real food does the same job of eliminating the harmful foods that overload your system, drive up inflammation, harm your gut, and destroy your health and energy levels.

A “detox” sounds great, but it’s not a sustainable approach. It doesn’t help you change your relationship with food. It doesn’t address sugar addiction or dependency. It doesn’t give you authentic, long term tools for living a healthy lifestyle.

It does distract you from doing those things, though, which is really unfortunate.

Do yourself and favor and stop paying attention to the tricks, gimmicks, and magic pills—the B.S. in pretty packaging.

Instead, transition to a lifestyle that isn’t full of harmful foods, stress, and chronic exercise. When that happens, you’ll experience the “detox feeling” all year round.
