Castle Personal Training is a Corstorphine, Edinburgh based company who specialise in weightloss/toning and Pre and Post Natal exercise.
Just a very quick one; It’s the day after Christmas, Boxing day in the UK, as I’m writing this. It’s a lovely, rainy and chili, day in Edinburgh and I’ve spent most of it meeting up with good friends and answering emails from clients.
I just came across the first Facebook post mentioning the dreaded “D” word…..Detox. I hate that word and the way it’s currently being used by many in the Health and Fitness industry. I’ve written on this subject before but feel it’s well worth repeating.
You know my opinion on Personal Trainers selling weightloss shakes and supplements. It really is complete and utter hokum. All these Detox-diets, -shakes,-pills, -wraps and -teas that many people will try to push on you over the next few weeks do NOTHING for you. As long as you stop putting rubbish in your body you will find that your body will reward you by “detoxing” all by itsself. It’s what your liver and kidneys were designed to do, you see? These magic-potions contribute absolutely nothing.
It’s a wonderful thing, the human body.
Here’s how you “detox”
1; You cut out processed foods and take-aways.
Enough is enough.
2; Eat well. 50% of your plate will be vegetables and you take on board enoughy high-quality protein.
Grilled chicken and spinach salad, yum!
3; Drink enough water. I’ve written about this before.
In short; Eat the way you’re supposed to eat and drink the way you’re supposed to drink.
Job done, your body will do the rest. No “21 day detox” pack, no “detox breakfast teas” and no magic potions that will cost you a fortune but will do nothing for you.
Stay healthy in the New Year and do it by being sensible and not buying quick-fixes that will only make your wallet lighter.
