Clearing the body of toxins is an important part of losing excess fat and reaching the ideal weight for yourself. There are many healthy foods out there that will help accomplish this goal, but here are four readily available foods that you can incorporate into your menu more often to get the best results.
Start your morning off with a serving or two of blueberries and you’ll be helping your body get into fat-burning mode. The best part of blueberries is their ability to specifically target belly fat, thanks to a specific type of catechin they contain. You’d be doing yourself a disservice not to include blueberries in an effort to burn fat and detoxify the body.
The antioxidants in blueberries give your body a big boost in fighting free radicals, which if left unchecked can leave you feeling run down, and over the long term can lead to a variety of illnesses.
Blueberries are also high in fiber, which is important when releasing toxins because they have to make it all the way out of the body. A sluggish digestive system can impede that process and could lead to you reabsorbing already released toxins back into the body.

Spinach didn’t earn its reputation as a healthy food by accident, it contains many elements that factor into a fit, healthy body free of excess fat and toxins. It’s a nutritional powerhouse with Vitamin C and Vitamin A that act as antioxidants inside the body.
Spinach also contains important phytonutrients that the body uses to fire on all cylinders, and is one of the most nutrient-dense foods you can eat. It will not only help your body purge itself of toxins, but will give it the vitamins and minerals needed to repair itself once the toxins have left.
Fiber is another big contributor to the fat loss equation, and spinach provides 8% of what you need in a 100 gram serving. We’ve already seen how fiber helps release toxins, and spinach can help you reach your daily fiber goal.

Broccoli is a healthy food that you’re probably well aware of, but if you’re looking to burn fat and help your body become less toxic, broccoli becomes even more important. It helps get the body into a fat-burning state instead of storing fat, and when combined with the other foods on this list and a healthy lifestyle you’ll see the fat go away and an improvement in your general health.
When you eat broccoli you’ll feel full quicker during the meal, and stay full longer after the meal. It’s also a good source of fiber, which will help you stay regular and keep you at a more natural weight.
[color-box color=”main”]Ways to Eat More Broccoli: We’re the first to admit that if you’re not a fan of broccoli, the thought of increasing its intake may send you running away. But the trick is to mix it up, and try not to have the same style twice. You might try roasting it once, steaming it the next time, and then adding it to a soup the time after that.[/color-box]
