There’s something you should know: detoxing – the idea that you can flush your system of impurities and leave your organs squeaky clean and raring to go – is a scam. It’s a pseudo-medical concept designed to sell you things.
Deep down, I think we all know that there are no short-cuts. But eating healthily, taking alcohol in moderation, getting some exercise and drinking plenty of water all sound so boring! So we’re attracted to the magic pill or elixir or cream that claims to do the job for us in half the time – especially in the run up to the Christmas party season.
My party prep this year involves swapping fatty lunch time sandwiches for vegetable soups and trying to be sensible about alcohol – for instance actually ordering the glass of water with every alcoholic drink instead of just thinking about it!
