What you eat and drink can have a remarkable impact on your health. I think somewhere deep down we all know this, but our environment is not geared to allow us to live it.

Since there are no patents involved in prescribing food, pharmaceuticals are not interested in paying scientists to study it. Meanwhile during medical school doctors receive on average only 23.9 contact hours of nutrition (range: 2–70 h). Schools are notorious for offering unhealthy lunches that are cheaper to purchase and distribute. Overwhelmed and under informed parents struggle to create and execute healthy meal plans. Restaurants and supermarkets of course prefer foods with a longer shelf life life to maximize profits and supply foods that are in demand. Put it all together and you won’t be surprised to know that in the US “most calories are consumed from processed foods”.

Unfortunately, the research we have today (including observational studies and some randomized controlled trials) tells us that we should be eating real foods and mostly plants. Yuck… right?

So how do you incorporate the benefits of eating fruits, vegetables, legumes, nuts, seeds and whole grains into your diet without giving up on all of your sinful pleasures?

Take a shortcut: use detox drinks.

Adding detox drinks to your daily regimen are a great way to do just that. In essence, you simply put all of your favorite foods together to create a beverage that will keep your body functioning at maximum capacity and your mind vibrating at the frequency you desire. You will feel light, yet full.

If you begin by adding a detox drink to your diet, you are on the right path. If you go one step further and put some thought into what results you want to achieve and look for ingredients, or combination of ingredients, that can support you, then you will see a difference in how you look and feel in a matter of days. Since you are consuming liquids, these are absorbed much quicker into your system and results will become apparent faster.
