Artificial trans fats are found in processed junk food and they can clog your arteries and put you at risk of heart disease. So far, so nasty.

But the scariest part about trans fats is that they stay in your body for years - what else can you expect from the hydrogenated animal fats and plant oils that give food a long shelf life?

Purify your system now with these top 5 detox diet tips...

Cut your addiction to junk food


There's no point making a decision to eliminate trans fats if you're going to keep eating them, so cut out junk food, processed food and those quiet baddies like bottled salad dressings and cereal bars.

Eat more fibre


Fibre is capable of binding to fats allowing them to be released naturally. Try and eat between 30 and 50 grams of fibre per day through wholegrains, brown rice, fruit, vegetables and oats.

Try a green juice detox cleanse


Flush your system with healthy juices like spinach, kale and lemon or carrot, beet and orange. Not only are they rich in nutrients and antioxidants, but they contain enzymes that aid your body in releasing fat.

Eat more organic food


Pick up organic fruit and vegetables and grass fed meats and opt for raw or steamed cooking methods to drastically reduce your use of cooking oils and dressings.

Cleanse your body with water


On a detox drink eight glasses of water per day, plus two more with lemon or ginger to aid digestion. Swap your coffee and tea with herbal options and green tea to give your metabolism a kick.
