Among the detox diets to eliminate toxins from our body, the mono diet is becoming more and more popular. But what type of diet is it, and is it safe for our organism?

The Diet to Eliminate Toxins

There are lots of toxins that accumulate in our body from different sources: pollution, tobacco, alcohol, energy drinks, food additives... Several diets have been developed to eliminate all these toxins from our body, such as fasting, for example. The mono diet is also part of these "miracle" diets whose objective is to purify our organism.

But what is that exactly? The mono diet corresponds to the ingestion of a single food, often a fruit, a vegetable, or a complete cereal, in all its possible forms (juice, puree, compote...) for up to three days. For example, many apple, carrot, celery, cherry or rice mono diets have emerged in recent years.

Regenerating Our Organs

The goal is to regenerate our organs, mainly the intestine, which is often neglected when it is the source of many disorders if not taken care of. Moreover, it is one of the organs that accumulates the greatest number of toxins!

To detoxify the body, the mono diet is usually done in the following manner: count three days of preparation, three days of diet based on a single food, and three days of return to normal. On the first day of preparation, remove sugar, fat and meats. On the second day, it is necessary to eliminate cereals, dairy products and fish. On the third day, eat only fruits and vegetables. You can then begin your three-day diet, for example, an apple-based one (cooked or raw), while drinking plenty of water. After three days, gradually resume your usual diet by following the same pattern.

A Diet That Is Not Without Danger

Currently, no medical studies can prove the beneficial effects of a mono diet. And, if some say that mono diets are effective, many testimonials darken the picture with adverse effects: intestinal disorders, stomach ache, weight gain, great fatigue, etc. Thus, eating only one food for three days could have adverse effects on your organism, depending on the selected food.

Moreover, this type of diet can also create disgust with a certain type of food: it would be a pity to deprive yourself of delicious vegetables and fruits! Finally, fruit-based mono diets can cause too high a sugar intake, for example, in the case of grape-based mono diets. Finally, you may suffer from severe nutritional deficiencies if you consume only one kind of food. As a result, health professionals say it is a hazardous diet and do not recommend it.

How Can You Purify Your Organism?

Yet, there are many techniques to purify your body! First, practicing physical activity is essential to detoxify your body. You do not have to go to the gym three times a week, but just walking every day can already have beneficial effects. In addition, it is possible to go through a "detox diet" without constraint, for example, by eating only whole fruits, vegetables and various cereals for two days, or by severely limiting red meats and fats.

And, in the case of "little guilty pleasures," like a three-cheese lasagna in the middle of the winter, prefer soups and broths during the following two days! A balanced and diversified diet allows your organs to regenerate and your body to regain strength, while sports and the consumption of certain drinks (green tea and sugar-free infusions) will detoxify your body every day. So no need to deprive yourself!
