    Hi IL,

    I would like to start new thread about weight loss which is specifically related to cleansing/detoxing of body which play important role to loose weight as well. This is not talked much about or explained.

    We have been discussing different aspects of weight loss such as Excercise regimen & Healthy diets in blogs and threads.

    I am including here few things related to detoxing body regularly, please feel to include information which will help to everybody:

    - 1- 2 glass of warm water as soon as you get up ( as per Ramdev baba suggestion) this works fast.
    - Pear/Apple in the morning for breakfast and after dinner
    - High fiber breakfast
    - Drink luke warm water whole day (this will keep moisten the food that is intaken and body as well and helps evacation easily)
    - Dinner before 3-4 hours before going to bed
    - Walking
    - Stretches

    Waiting for reply..

    Thanks for starting good thread :thumbsup

    Just read these points online..

    1. Eat plenty of fiber, including brown rice and organically-grown fresh fruits and vegetables. Beets, radishes, artichokes, cabbage, broccoli, spirulina, chlorella, and seaweed are excellent detoxifying foods.

    2. Cleanse and protect the liver by taking herbs such as dandelion root, burdock and milk thistle, and drinking green tea.

    3. Take vitamin C, which helps the body produce glutathione, a liver compound that drives away toxins.

    4. Drink at least 2 quarts of water daily.

    5. Breathe deeply to allow oxygen to circulate more completely through your system.

    6. Transform stress by emphasizing positive emotions.

    7. Practice hydrotherapy by taking a very hot shower for five minutes, allowing the water to run on your back. Follow with cold water for 30 seconds. Do this three times, and then get into bed for 30 minutes.

    8. Sweat in a sauna so your body can eliminate wastes through perspiration.

    9. Dry-brush your skin or try detoxifying patches or detox foot spas / foot baths to remove toxins through your pores. Special brushes are available at natural products stores.

    10. What is the most important way to detoxify? "Exercise," says Bennett. "Yoga or jump-roping are good. One hour every day." Also try qigong, a martial-arts based exercise system that includes exercises specifically for detoxifying or cleansing, as well as many other exercises with specific health benefits.

    Smoking tobacco, consuming too much tea and coffee, or intake of prescription or illegal drugs can also cause constipation.

    Hi Marathimulgi,

    U have started a nice thread:thumbsup,
    I have also read that, choosing 1 day in a week and have only fruits / fruit juices w/o sugar and no salt for the entire day will cleanse the body.

    And also having carrot, tomato and beetroot juice in the morning will cleanse the body

    Iam following the routine of eating only fruits/ fruit juices and vegetables for a day. It really works, i feel very light the next day

    I agree with deethijv.
    5 years back when I was trying to lose weight, I used to have carrot, tomato, beetroot salad for breakfast. Just squeeze a lime. No salt.

    Dear Marathi
    The suggestions for weight loss and detoxification are seems to be incomplete. Well, diet monitoring and consumption of type of fat (Hydrogenated) is another essential steps to reduce wieght apart from regular physical exercise and intake of luke warm water.

    Kapalbhati Yoga and sudershan kriya will be another plus points
