I want to talk about so-called detox or cleanse diets. First things first. I recognize that there may be distinctions between detoxing and cleansing depending on your definition, but generally speaking these terms are interchangeable and I’m going to use them as such. Examples of types of cleanses include the “master cleanse”, juice fasting, raw or vegan cleanses.

General terms you should know are macronutrients or macromolecules, overall nutrition, and metabolism including anabolism (building) and catabolism (breaking down). Protein metabolism refers to the breakdown of proteins into amino acids. Terms you should understand include protein synthesis and breakdown, catabolism and anabolism, fed, fasting and starvation state. Protein is important for building muscle, skeletal muscle. Carbs or carbohydrates generally refers to sugar, glucose. They can be simple or complex. Their purpose is to produce cellular energy, adenosine triphosphate, ATP and includes electron transports chain. You should know how to count carbs and terms such as glycogen, gluconeogenesis, and glycolysis. Fat metabolism refers to the breakdown of fatty acids, saturated, unsaturated, monounsaturated, polyunsaturated, trans, hydrogenated, cholesterol, triglycerides, hydrocarbons, low density lipoprotein or LDL, high density lipoprotein or HDL, lipids, MUFA, PUFA, and phospholipids. Calories are how we quantify energy in food.

Detox diets and cleanse diets are helpful. It sounds like common sense to stop eating junk food and drink juices for a few days that are filled with vitamins and minerals. THE BEST DETOX are the ones that help your body detox the toxins in foods.
