Eat your greens
Every morning, Elle drinks a green concoction of filtered water mixed with two teaspoons of her Super Elixir alkalizing supplement, which contains dandelion to flush toxins from the liver.
Drink 2 liters of water a day
Elle hydrates her body by drinking two liters of filtered water a day and skips on the plastic water bottles which not only are bad for the environment, but can contain harmful chemicals.
Reduce your MSG consumption
Elle takes care to minimize her consumption of food rich in additives and MSGs – foods without these are much easier on the liver.
A coffee a day…
Like many of us, Elle is fan of coffee but limits herself to one per day – an hour or so before or after a meal, as caffeine can take hinder the absorption of healthy nutrients from food.
Replace bad fats with good fats
Fat isn’t all bad. Yes, the fats found in processed and packaged foods like cakes, cookies and margarine aren’t great but Elle enjoys the benefits of the friendly fats found in linseeds, olive oil, fish oils and avocados. In fact, 20% of the fats found in these foods are reduced during digestion.
Take advantage of plant-based proteins
Swapping out animal protein for vegan or vegetarian sources can seriously reduce the amount of toxins that enter your body.
Do cardio 4 times a week
Sweating it out isn’t just for sculpting those abs – is great for your liver too
Limit your alcohol consumption
We all know that alcohol is bad for the liver. One glass a day for women and two for men will do no harm but excessive binge drinking will take its toll later on in life…
Reduce how many medications you take
Instead of reaching for the aspirin the second her head starts to ache, Elle often searches for more natural solutions such as drinking water, reducing caffeine intake and exercise.
Drinking in moderation
Swap your chardonnay for a refreshing and healthy granita. Your body will thank you for it.
