Detox diets in Thailand & Eating Out: The Natural Restaurant Phuket & Mor Mu Dong

Michael Massey, the director at Atmanjai Wellness Center in Phuket Thailand, speaks about detox diets and why he’s a passionate advocate of body cleansing. To cleanse your body requires techniques, supplements, having fresh ingredients that induce wellness from within and an environment conducive to stimulating overall wellbeing. Since juice fasting, eating natural foods and choosing what supplements to take during a detoxification program requires more than willpower but an understanding of how the body functions, Michael recommends submersing yourself in an environment such as the one he’s created at Atmanjai. It’s well worth being in a place that’s comfortable where trained staff guide you through an effective cleansing and detox experience. The results are what count, and there’s no shortage of healthy smiling faces to attest to the power of body cleansing that Atmanjai delivers at their resort on Soi Mittrapap, Wiset Road, Rawai, Phuket. The customized programs help guests get rid of cellulite and lose weight fast, but most of all they assist people in regaining energy and vibrant health. Detox diets in Thailand are about changing your lifestyle, not about crash diet for weight loss. But…

When the body cleansing program is over and you leave the center, what about eating out at Thai restaurants? A healthy Phuket restaurant and another that’s rustic but fresh…

If you stay in Thailand for a while after the body cleansing or detox diet is over, there will be many benefits. Fresh Thailand foods, lightly sautéed vegetable stir-fries, the abundance of tropical fruits and the variety of freshly made juices are a marvelous way to get back into the swing of life. Even if you’re not into spicy dishes, the average Thai food menu at Phuket restaurants will include healthy choices. Although it will depend on what the detox specialist has recommended when you leave the clinic or resort, in most cases the local dishes are healthy, but…beware of MSG in stir fries, curries and soups.

Especially after completing a body cleansing program, it’s important to refrain from processed and chemical laden foods, even those that appear to be fresh. Of course freshly squeezed or extracted fruit juices and vegetable drinks are usually free of additives, but even the best seafood restaurant in Phuket may be adding MSG to their dishes. If a restaurant seasons with monosodium glutamate, don’t expect your dish to be exempt even if you’ve ask it to be omitted. It’s better to choose restaurants known for NEVER using the deadly ingredient. One place that’s well-known for being delicious and health conscious, is Thamachat Natural Restaurant Phuket (in Phuket town). They have all the favorite Thai foods, but no dishes with MSG. They specialize in “natural” foods.

A Healthy Rustic Dinning Experience – Mor Mu Dong Phuket restaurant

For an “experience” as well as a healthy Phuket restaurant to dine at, make your way to a place that’s off the usual tourist trail and well worth the effort: Mor Mu Dong Restaurant. They serve authentic Thai food that’s cooked using traditional techniques. Try the pla pao – a whole fish encrusting with sea salt and steamed in leaves. No MSG. Mor Mu Dong Phuket restaurant may be the most rustic little place you’ve ever been to, where you sit on the floor of a Thai Sala to eat, but they serve fresh fruit and veggies as starters before you even place an order. It’s a great place to relax and continue the body cleansing process without feeling as if you’re on any kind of diet.
