In the last post, I wrote about some of the good things about cleansing diets. But, if you’re going to do one, then you should be well prepared. Below are a list of some of the challenges that could come with a cleanse.
1. Unpleasant symptoms. There are a number of unpleasant side effects people feel when on a cleansing diet. You may suffer from:
• Feeling weak
• Digestive distress
• Feeling dizzy
• Feeling irritable
Proponents of cleansing diets will remind you that these side effects are only temporary and you’ll feel much better after.
2. Temporary weight loss. The weight loss you’re likely to see from a cleansing diet is most often temporary. As soon as your diet ends, the weight is put back on. The goal of these types of diets is not to lose weight but to eliminate toxins.
3. Difficult to do correctly. Cleansing diets can be difficult to do correctly and can be unsafe. It is recommended that you do a lot of research on your chosen diet and see a doctor before undertaking any extreme changes in your diet.
Cleansing diets can be a good thing if they’re handled correctly and you’re prepared for all of the potential side effects. Take the time to research, and visit your doctor before you make a decision.
