What if there was a way to feel more love? “That was the aim of this three-day detox workshop,” explains Nuthan Manohar, a yoga instructor, wellness expert and founder at Me Met Me, a wellness institution. The last weekend (February 11 to 13), Nuthan along with celebrity nutritionist Gayatri Asokan conducted a ‘Love Detox’ workshop.
“The participants were given foods like avocado, banana, honey and chocolate to fit the theme along with regular detox foods like berry smoothies, lot of fruits and vegetables’” says Gayatri. “The aim of a detox is to eliminate all toxins from your body,” she explains. Our body tends to accumulate toxins by eating junk food like pizzas, pastries, drinking alcohol, colas, etc. “The idea is to eat light food to meet your calorie requirement and purge your body of these toxins in the process.”
“Organs affected when you fill your body with unwanted food and pollution mainly are lungs, liver, kidney and colon,” explains Nuthan Manohar. A monthly detox, like fasting or eating a larger share of fruits and vegetables will help you cleanse these organs. “It will help in resolving issues like constipation and will give you glowing skin,” Gayatri adds.
