New Year’s resolutions seem to be synonymous with losing weight. And quick weight loss tends to be synonymous with gimmicks. A very popular gimmick nowadays is a five letter word that begins with D and ends with X.
We constantly see too-good-to-be-true detoxing cleanses that promise six-pack abs, quick weight loss, and the cure-all feeling of youth.
Unfortunately, it turns out that most of these cleanses are, in fact, too good to be true. They are typically very expensive and usually ineffective – or worse, harmful. The truth is that millions of people are still attempting these detoxes in 2018 because of persuasive marketing that makes promises too brilliant to resist. Here are a few words and phrases you need to know and look out for in order to be safe if you’re considering a cleanse this year.
The bad news is that there is no quick fix to good health. The good news is that, with the right resources, the path to good health can be a simple and enjoyable one. Eat a nutritious and balanced diet and find an activity that you love to keep your body moving. Do these two things every day and see for yourself!
Wishing you a Happy and Healthy New Year!
