Detox the next big thing in diets?

August 18, 2004

Albany -- The Low Carb diet craze has taken over America. Now, some health experts believe detox diets will be the next big thing. That involves cleansing the body of toxins and includes eating natural and raw foods.

Some health professionals think many people will soon move away from Low-carb diets and be drawn to detoxing.

"You are going to leave weight naturally because when you detox you are going to get rid of the weight. You sometimes become more aware of what you put in your body," says Rachel Floyd of Aloe Herbs For Life a health store in Albany.

Critics say some detoxing regiments may deprive you of certain proteins you need.
