Get Your Glow On: 5 Easy Ways To A Summer Detox
With the summer months hitting their full stride, we, too, find ourselves hustling to arrive at our best and brightest selves. With bikini bods and youthful glowy skin on our minds, it’s time to dive head first into a quick summer detox.
Although our body has a natural detoxification process, there are a few things you can do to speed up the process and help shed those last-minute pounds.
Here are five easy ways to boost your body with a quick summer detox.

1. Probiotics
Microflora reduces cravings for carbohydrates, sugar, and alcohol. And new research has found that obese people have different bacteria in their intestines than people of normal weight. Scientists think that good bacteria can keep you from gaining pounds. Introducing probiotics into your daily routine may be the game changer you’ve been waiting for!
2. Water, Water, And More Water
Grab that gallon jug of water and chug till you’re pretty! The National Institute of Health estimates that 48% of the adult population of the United States is chronically dehydrated (which can also make your complexion look years older!). Water plumps up the body’s tissues, creating an internal space that allows blood platelets to separate and trapped toxins to wash away.
3. Fiber
Increasing the fiber content helps combat bloating ( your bikini will thank you).  Fiber also has  tremendous benefits for your skin. Some simple ways to add fiber into your daily diet is to start your day with oatmeal or add some leafy greens for your lunch.
4. Sulfur-Rich Foods
Sulfur aids in the detoxification of your body (reducing inflammation) that is believed to contribute to weight gain. Incorporate these simple foods into your diet to accelerate the process: grilled tuna, avocado, chicken burgers, zucchini, carrots, onions, asparagus, lentils, smoked salmon, cucumbers, hummus, garlic, scallions, cauliflower, broccoli, cabbage, collard greens, tomatoes, turkey jerky, olives, almonds, and eggs.
5. Eat Raw
You don’t have to starve yourself to detox, but one of the easiest adjustments to make is to incorporate a wide variety of fruits and raw vegetables into your daily routine.  Try it for a week and you’ll see that your digestion immediately improves and you feel lighter and less sluggish over all. Happy eating!
