"Hot" foods, often minced and always well digestible, are the protagonists of the Hot diet, developed by the Canadian holistic nutritionist Julie Daniluk, author of the best seller of the same name.
«If you base your soups, purees and smoothies: if followed for just 3 days, it detoxifies in depth the spleen, lungs, kidneys, liver, skin and intestines ”, explains the creator herself. "The reason? They heat the core of the organism, or rather the digestive system, stimulating intestinal peristalsis and thus favoring the physiological processes of purification ».
One more advantage
Heating foods or shredding them in the blender also opens up their cell structure and makes detox nutrients more accessible: «An example is that of broccoli, a source of sulforaphane, a substance capable of stimulate liver detoxification, which is activated only when these vegetables are crushed, ”continues Julie Daniluk.
Other foods ok
In the Hot diet they are also present different alkalizing foods, such as almost all vegetables, most of the fruit, herbs and spices, which keep intestinal pH in balance, ensuring the efficiency of the digestive system. "On the other hand, the consumption of acidic ones, such as refined flours, sugar, red meat and industrial products».
Then there are foods that offer a natural purifying effect: «You prefer animal proteins poultry and shrimp, while among the vegetables you choose lentils, raspberries, avocado, pumpkin and onion», Concludes the Canadian nutritionist.
