Nutrition expert Jackie Keller reveals the truth about common diet myths
Diet Myth #2: Detox Diets are the Only Way to Jump Start your Weight Loss
Detox diets sound like a great way to cleanse your body, but Jackie strongly advises against them. Detox diets trigger your body to go into starvation mode, which can actually slow down your metabolism. When your body believes it is starving, it protects you by slowing down metabolism in order to conserve energy. People on starvation diets will find that they regain the weight once they start eating again. So instead of going straight to the detox diet, examine what you eat on a daily basis and work to eliminate processed foods by replacing them with nutrient rich foods.
