When one goes on a “detox” diet or plan, one tries to eat more wholesome foods and avoid fast food or already prepared foods. If you go back to your regular diet, you are going to feel tired and sluggish again and in time will think you have to “detox” again. By learning to incorporate healthier foods on a daily basis you will avoid this rollercoaster effect. Try changing things slowly and not go back to your past routine. Your body will love you for it and you will feel better in the long run.
