You stopped smoking? But apart from the nicotine crisis you are starting to feel various symptoms such as acne, or constant hunger; this definitely doesn’t mean that you should light a cigarette and put yourself out of the misery – It only means that your organism is trying to rid itself of the poison you’ve been systematically consuming.
These foods will help you feel great in no time:
Green tea – due to smoking, your cells lose necessary water and it makes the organism dehydrated. Drinking large quantities of green tea encourages lymphatic drainage and ejection of nicotine from the body. First results will be noticeable when urinating – the urine will be darker in color.
Lemon – apart from water, smoking also makes your body “lose” vitamins A, C, and E, which are in charge of strengthening your immune system. In order to make up for lost vitamins, drink a glass of lukewarm water with the juice of 1 lemon each morning before breakfast.
Spinach and broccoli – folic acid is very important for the normal functioning of cells, especially of blood cells. If you are a smoker, your organism uses up considerably higher amount of this acid, but the good news are that spinach and broccoli are high in folic acid.
Fresh carrot – nicotine makes skin dry and lifeless, but eating fresh carrot is the fastest way to fix this problem. It is high in vitamins A, K, C, and B, which are the main “collectors” of the remaining nicotine. You can make a tasty vitamin shake by mixing carrots, apples and lemon in a blender or you can simply slice it up as a salad.
Orange juice – another great source of vitamin C is a great source of energy to start off your day with, since vitamin C helps produce Carnitine, which turns fat into energy. Also, the sour taste of the orange juice will curb your cravings for a morning cigarette.
