Detox is something everyone wants to do to cleanse the body, wipe toxins out and stay fit & flab-free. However, if you are the one who dreads detox concocts and tough follow-throughs, then here’s a list of 5 simple foods that can detoxify your body with zero efforts.

1. Beetroots

Add beetroots to your salads each day. Beets contain betalains – an antioxidant that helps repair and regenerate liver cells. A healthy liver is the pre-requisite for detoxification and beets keep your liver in pink of health.

2. Grapefruit

Grapefruit or Chakotra is full of phytochemicals that fight the flab. The chemicals found in grapefruit also activate brown fat cells that aide burning calories. A bowl of grapefruit can improve your metabolism and help you stay slim.

3. White-Tea

You can directly fight belly fat with white-tea. White tea has proven to be a double-edged sword against fat cells, first it aides lipolysis (the process of breakdown of fat) and second, it stops adipogenesis ( the process of formation of fat cells).

4. Kiwi

Kiwi is a great source of fiber as well as vitamins and other nutrients. If you have a sluggish bowel movement or constipation, then eating Kiwi every day can help you cleanse your stomach easily. Double the power of Kiwi by eating it along with a cup of hot Green Tea, the combination is fat-zapping!

5. De-Limonene

Well, De-Limonene is not a detoxifying recipe but a detoxifier itself. Found in peels of citrus fruits, De-Limonene is an antioxidant that stimulates the liver enzymes to detoxify and kick bowel movements. If you crave for a great skin and a flab-free body, then you must slice citrus fruits like lemons and oranges in a pitcher of water and drink from it through the day.
