Now.....DETOX DIET. I personally believe that this is just another scam/fad diet. Why? First you need to understand about this diet.
What is detox diet?
Detox, short for detoxification, is the body's natural, ongoing process of neutralizing or eliminating toxins from the body. Toxins (anything that can potentially harm body tissue) are transformed chemically to less harmful compounds and excreted via stools or urine. ( the source: FROM HERE)
What do you do in this diet?
This is just one example of this diet: You just consume the liquid or designated products that they sell with this diet like in Lemon Detox Diet; you need to to ONLY drink squeezed lemons, Madal Bar Natural Tree Syrup and Cayenne Pepper for 7 to 10 days.You also must drink a litre of sea salt water every morning, a detox tea in the evenings, and fresh orange juice and peppermint tea if necessary.

So in short, you replace your food with the products that they sell and they promise that you can lose weight in no time.
What really happen to your body? It just make your metabolic rate to drop, cut down your muscle mass and the scariest thing is you might gain more weight once you stop using this diet.
Still not convince? Let's see this video from youtube.com:
You can just google up more information about this kind of diet if you are still not convinced. My intention is just to highlight and share what I've been reading and hopefully more people know about this. There are actually thousands of people in US, Australia and New Zealand who had tried this diet and they really thought this is a good diet. Some really believe and stand by their opinions about this diet.
I'm not a dietitian nor a nutritionist. Hence I might not be the best person to advice you on this. But, I have this urge in my mind that I think I should share some info. that I've gathered with you. The best diet is just going back to basic and do a lot of exercises! It always work because all you need is to motivate yourself to get up and DO IT!
