Farhan Akhtar on Detox diet

Moreoever, our busy schedule and stress also puts burden on the organs, affecting their natural functioning, which may result in pockets of waste getting accumulated in the body. To detoxify the body from such waste pile-up, you should partake in healthy activities that support the body's natural detoxification process. There can be several types of detox, though a vegetation diet detox is said to be the best, especially for a non-vegetarian. Why else would Farhan Akhtar stick to a completely vegetarian diet to detox his body?

Few weeks ago, the actor suffered a throat infection and the doctors recommended him to switch to a lighter, completely vegetarian diet. Thus, understanding the benefits of a vegetarian diet for detox, he has since then remained on a light vegetarian diet. Detox implies removing unwanted toxins from the organs as well as getting rid of stress and emotional toxins. If you’re new to detox, switch to a vegetarian detox diet for one weekend to cleanse your physical and psychological self.


Steamed Vegetables


How to start?

To start, reduce intake of caffeine, sugar, wheat, dairy, and alcohol a day before you are to begin the detoxification process. It will reduce withdrawal symptoms during the detox when you will also not get any of these foods or drinks. When it's time to detox, switch to a completely vegetarian diet. Eat light green, steamed vegetables or legumes, beans twice or thrice during the day in small servings.

You can also crunch on a few raw nuts. However, be sure of a couple of things. First, you need to get ample sleep on friday night and second, you need to avoid stress and anxiety during the detox. So, keep your weekend free for yourself. Working while detoxifying may have a negative impact on your detox program.

Detox will help remove all the impure substances from your body so that your body finds itself in normal conditions. The organs will not be under any unwanted and harmful stress. Switch to a completely vegetarian diet just like Farhan Akhtar to keep yourself healthy.
