With the holidays right around the corner, many of us are going to wreak havoc on our bodies. This is the time of year where we slack off on our diets through overeating and drinking too much alcohol. Furthermore, we're more sedentary, not getting as much Vitamin D from the sun, and generally cooped up in the house. Because of this, the wintertime is notorious for developing ailments, gaining weight, and feeling less than our best selves. One of the ways we can promote our health, remove toxins, and potentially even lose weight this season is through a cleanse.
In this post, I'm going to walk you through what a cleanse is, why they're becoming more popular amongst men, and go over a few cleanses that could keep you in tip-top shape going into the new year.

What is a cleanse?
A cleanse, often known as a "detox", is any kind of diet or lifestyle regimen that is aimed at detoxing or purifying the body. The aim of many cleanses are to make you feel better, be more energetic, lose weight, reduce inflammation, restore important organs, improve your digestive system, clear your skin, and support your body's natural detoxification systems. Different cleanses can impact different areas of your health, but here are the 10 most common cleanses:
- liver cleanse
- juice cleanse
- master cleanse
- detox herbs
- colon cleanse
- parasite cleanse
- foot detox
- nasal irrigation
- oxygen detox
Why are cleanses becoming more popular?
As millennials in the US turn towards cleaner eating and more health-focused lifestyles, new startups centered on cleanses are popping up left and right. As it stands, just the fresh-juices market alone is already a multi-billion dollar industry.
According to New York Times, Teddy Bass, an L.A.-based personal trainer who works with celebrities, notes that one reason cleanses have caught on is because of our belief as a society in the lifestyles of the rich and famous. Whether it's social media fueling these trends or the actual drive to be healthier than the fast-food generation, something has to be said about their rise in popularity.
What are the downsides of cleanses?
Detractors and critics of cleanses often state that cleanses are not all glitz and glam. Some experts claim that cleanses could:
- Lead to bloating, gas, and diarrhea as your body adjust to high-fiber, fruity heavy cleanses
Be harmful to teenagers, pregnant women, and people with preexisting conditions as cleanses could impact the calories and proteins consumed
Be looked at as a long-term solution, when in fact, they are meant to be a short, jumpstart towards healthier lifestyle
Detoxes and cleanses are not intended for long-term weight loss, but rather a short, jump-start to healthy eating and exercising habits.
Detoxes are not proven to rid the body of toxins better than your body’s own natural mechanisms.
