It seems that detox diets are the latest rage. I personally can see how a short term detox can be a beneficial way to give your digestive system a rest. In the animal world sick animals will fast on only water and let their bodies heal themselves, obviously an instinctive response to illness.
Detox programs are not being used that way with the current rage. Turn on any late night infomercial and you will see several programs with the latest detox diet. The current rage on detox diets are just that, diets, a quick way to lose a few pounds. I don't think that is a good idea. A lifestyle of change, one involving exercise, rest, and nutritional awareness is the only way to get it done right. Moderation not extremism.
