To break it down for you, detoxes and cleanses are unnecessary agony that cost you a boatload of money. Instead of throwing good money after bad, Dr. Pojednic suggests the always solid, never appreciated advice to, "Play the long game of committed nutritious eating and physical activity, because health doesn't come in three-day spurts of juice, tea, and cayenne pepper."
Quick and easy
Sadly, changing bad habits and revamping your health is never quick or easy, no matter how many "experts" tell you it is… that is, if you'll buy into their latest, greatest program designed to solve all your problems in less than 10 days. As Josh York, founder and CEO of the mobile fitness concept, GYMGUYZ points out, "If it were easy, we wouldn't have an epidemic of obesity in our country."
And as it relates to "quick," short, high-intensity workouts can certainly be effective, but it takes consistency and effort that's maintained for weeks, months, and even years to see lasting results.
