    Is it wise to be drinking tea with caffeine in it on a detox? i know white and green are quite low in it but it is still there. red tea is of course caffeine free.

    It very important to drink a lot of water during a detox.
    Not tea can replace the cleansing function of water.

    There are many herbal teas that are caffeine free that you can drink. For example red tea.

    Green and white tea are low in caffeine and they help the body to detox. They increase the level of increase detoxification enzymes (GST enzymes).

    I’m having trouble trying to comment because of the math question. I don’t understand what it is asking me. It says “Please add 2 and 4″. I enter 6, and it says I can’t add. Oh well, interesting post Carolin. I have often thought I’d like to try a detox diet for awhile – just for health purposes. This post has given me another kick in the rear to try a detox diet.

    Most people think if they eat less they will loose weight and if you invest in a healthy diet plan you will learn that this isn’t always the case. Sometimes it isn’t the quantity of the foods you eat it is the quality or lack there of.

  10. Richard from healthy weight loss on April 21st, 2010 8:55 pm

    Sometimes your system does need a good clean out to flush out all the toxins. It’s obviously not sustainable for long term weight loss can be effective to give it a kick start as this suggest.
