Detoxification Diet and Fat Loss

Excessive eating, stress, skipping meals, genetic disorders, medicine, and long-term illnesses are the main culprits behind heavy fat gain. One fine day, when you realize that your body fat is posing a great threat for you, you start running around to find out effective ways for fat loss. In this hurry, you will somehow succeed in losing some fat temporarily or end up with more complications.

It effectively tones the digestive system and helps in fat loss.

2. Reduce your intake of yogurt, eggs, fish, legumes, meat and take very small portions of it once or twice a week, in one meal.
