Detox programs are not only for those individuals looking to lose weight. Many people feel that their bodies are being held down by pollutants and poisons in our environment and they want to free themselves of the toxins. Being at a healthy weight already, these people have already won half the battle that toxins present, which means they need to be able to detox their bodies without losing additional weight. One of the best ways to do this is by utilizing protein shakes.

When you are on detox programs known to cause you to lose weight, you can reverse this by consuming one or two protein shakes on a daily basis. Look for shakes that include eggs, soy and/or whey. Whey is the remaining liquid after milk has been curdled and strained. You also want to be certain that the protein shakes you use in your detox programs do not include any ingredients that you may be allergic to. They should also include all nine essential amino acids and have a high protein to carbohydrate ratio.

While taking part in detox programs, mix your protein shake with water, soy, rice or almond milk rather than cow’s milk. For additional flavor, you can add fruit such as bananas or extracts of vanilla, almond or cinnamon. You can also mix with orange juice as well.
