Detox Diets/Cleanses

A new diet trend is detoxing/cleansing your body. This means that you either fast, drink only liquids, or stick to a specific diet of vegetables and fruit. They're short-term diets, it's impossible to use one for more than a short period without extreme adverse effects. The diets can cause you to lose weight, but majority of that is water-weight, and once a normal diet begins again, the weight will be gained back. The purpose of this is to flush out toxins. However, the human body is an expert at keeping itself toxin-free without the need of cleansing. 

There is currently no proof that the diets cleanse. Overall, keeping a healthy diet with exercise is the best way to lose weight and stay healthy. However, there are many healthy diets as an alternative to cleansing.
