5. Fun ways to drink more water

Lemon water is fine, but if you’re serious about spring cleaning with detox foods, you’ll need more water of any and every type. How much should you drink? Dr. Axe advises his clients divide their body weight by half and drink that much in ounces. So, if you weigh 130 pounds your water intake should be 65 ounces a day. If that seems overwhelming, make your water more interesting with flavorful additions like berries and crushed mint, cubed melon, and sliced jalapeno, or cooling slices of cucumber with lemongrass.

6. Mucho matcha

Among its many benefits, matcha green tea is known as a powerful anti-carcinogen, and it also helps you lose fat. Epigallocatechin (EGCG) is a component found in the leaves used to make matcha that can transform fat into fuel in the bloodstream through a process called thermogenesis. The process helps you shed pounds, especially when you add the caffeine in matcha; it has three times more than regular green tea. High-quality matcha—it’s worth spending a bit more—is a brilliant green color with a slightly grassy, mildly bitter aftertaste. It makes a refreshing iced tea as well as a hot tea. Dr. Axe points out that matcha’s detox ability is due to its naturally high amount of chlorophyll, which helps cleanse your body and remove toxins from the liver.
