Detox your body, Eat in moderation. Remember the idiom anything in excess is poison. Use low fat ingredients in your sweets like skimmed milk. Instead of refined sugars use honey, jaggery, fruits, or dates. Prefer dry fruits over deep fried foods. Drink water before meals, it reduces appetite helping you to consume less. Eat slowly Avoid second helpings. Say no to carbonated drinks. Lose the booze and tobacco. If you can part with caffeine then lose that as well. But if youre a coffee-junkie then try to cut your intake to half. Lose the meat and all processed foods. If you can't lose all the meat then cut down your intake and stick to grass-fed, organic meat. Add lots of fiber. Once again, plenty of organic fruits and veggies. Add lots of water and natural juices. Plenty of liquids are key to any successful detox so try to consume at least 12-16 glasses per day. Add some exercise, preferably yoga.

If yoga is not your thing then walking for 20-30 minutes at a good pace should suffice.

Try for 8 hours of sleep and basic relaxation if possible
