I will let you know what helped me detox from eating too much junk food, so keep reading!

How to Detox Your Body After Eating Junk Food

How To Detox After Eating Junk Food

Detoxing occurs naturally within your body. The whole job of the liver is to get rid of toxins, so really, you don’t have to worry about doing any crazy detoxes. BUT, when you overload your liver and body with, well, crap, your liver will need a helping hand.

Here’s what I typically do to detox after eating junk food.

  • Drink Loads Of Water! Water helps your body flush out toxins. Water is so good for us, and most of us don’t drink enough of it! So yeah, I would drink 2-3L a day during my fast food detox.
  • Get Some Nutrients In You. You will need to do exactly the opposite of what you did before, from eating junk food, you will need to eat nutrient-dense foods. I like to eat a big salad for lunch and have a homemade smoothie, typically packed with antioxidants.
  • Get Some Quality Sleep! Sleep is extremely important when it comes to your body recovering, flushing out toxins, etc.
  • Don’t Drink Alcohol. There are a couple of things that happen when you drink alcohol during your detox, first you will feel hungry, and when you are tipsy, you will just end up eating bad food. Secondly, there is nothing healthy about alcohol, you will just end up back in square one.
  • Take That Supplement. Okay, here is my secret. I took this epic supplement that I got by accident, and oh my god, did it work. I am not one to be promoting that stuff, because I believe in natural remedies, but seriously, this one saved me many times.
  • Take Some Probiotics they can be either in the form of a pill or through food, typically yogurt. If you are a woman, and you want to start taking a probiotic, I recommend this one here. I use it every day.

I Took Detox Pure.

It not only helped me detox A LOT faster, but it also helped me lose weight. l looked at what Detox Pure does exactly when I had these amazing results, and according to the website it helps with:

  • Helps to eliminate nasty toxins
  • Boosts antioxidant support
  • Supports immune health
  • Promotes metabolism

I think because it promoted metabolism, that’s what must have resulted in a weight loss. Because I honestly didn’t change a thing about my daily eating habits.
Give it a try, if it’s not your thing that’s also fine, just follow my suggestions above.

How Long Does It Take For Your Body to Detox From Bad Food

This can vary, and there isn’t a fixed answer. However, you are looking at roughly 36 hours for your body to digest and pass the stools out.
However, there are things you could do to get relief quicker. Drink water, eat well, sleep well, and take a supplement if you need a quicker fix.
But generally, if you solely rely on your body to get rid of the toxins, you are looking at around 36 hours.

Too much sugar can make you feel sluggish, tired, and even hungry!
