To shift fat and release toxins, you need to drink LOTS of liquids, such as green tea, still water or detoxifying juices. It is also a good idea to minimize your exposure to toxins, such as not using cans that are lined with bisphenol-A, extreme emotions, plastics, chronic stress, and allergens.
Here is a scrumptious detoxifying juice recipe that stimulates fat metabolism, cleanses the lymphatic system, and shifts retained fluids. Enjoy it on an empty stomach.
- 1 Apple or Pear
- 2 Celery Sticks
- 6 Mint Leaves
- 1 Grapefruit
