7 Ways to Reset Your Gut For 2022 — Juice Cleanses, Meal Plans, and More
If you've been feeling fatigued, constipated, or you can't put word to it but "bleh" makes sense, you'll want to look into a reset for your gut. Your gut (aka your digestive system) is responsible for digestion and nutrient absorption, while being the home to part of your immune system. So, if it's talking to you, listen. Cleanses can come with a range of benefits from an increase in nutrients from fruits and vegetables to an increase in energy.
Depending on your lifestyle, you might go for a one-day cleanse or a 21-day reset. Ahead, we've listed seven resets including meal plans, smoothies, soups, and the classic juice cleanse, so that you can find what works for you. Before you start investing in a cleanse, here are a few things to keep in mind:
- Low-calorie cleanses are not meant to be done long term.
- By eliminating certain foods for a period of time you may find undiscovered food sensitivities.
- While you can lose weight with a cleanse, it's not a guarantee.
- If you're unsure that a cleanse is safe for your lifestyle, be sure to contact your provider beforehand.
