Ever stop to think about why there are so many detox diet programs around? On an intuitive level it seems to resonates with people a lot, apart from it becoming a buzz word, we all recognize that we are very toxic.
But the real truth and meaning behind why we detox seems lost. Detoxification is something that happens continuously within the body every single day. When we breathe, urinate and eliminate we are detoxing.
From my past experiences when I am offering or creating a detox diet program I have realized that for it to be successful it must be flexible, not difficult to follow and must be practical.
The thing is, most human beings like variation from time to time, something different, something of interest for our taste buds. At the same time a nutritional program must have some essential components like:
Something I want you to always keep in mind ... Your body is always rebuilding, from the inside out, so be aware of the foods you are eating that transforms into the structural part of your body. These foods must be of the best material. It is a detox diet for a healthier you.
At the same time, if you have certain problems with a specific food, please, listen to your body because it’s the best way to assess the suitability of any food.
I have read this statement and you might have also – ‘you become what you eat’. Know that there are foods that accelerate aging and others that renew and revitalize the body.
Foods can heal and renew and at the same time be your anti-aging medicine.
My seasonal whole food detox program is an ideal way to access your keys to a sustainable ideal body weight, without the premise of extremes, and a way of eating that can be followed for a lifetime. Its a roadmap to body detox for better health.
Take a look at the seasonal detox programs to see what I am offering and join, to kick-start your health with a good mix of complex carbohydrates, fats and oils.
As part of any detox diet managing the inflammation within the body is critical. Because age-related diseases have a common root: chronic, low-level inflammation.
Chronic inflammation makes you more susceptible to chronic diseases, like obesity, and inflammatory conditions, like rheumatoid arthritis. Certain foods, like lower glycemic foods and foods high in omega-3 fatty acids and antioxidants can decrease inflammation and protect tissues from inflammatory damage.
Keep in mind that limiting consumption of animal and processed foods can help reduce inflammation. Always opt for the highest quality products – fresh, in season, local, and/or organic when possible.
How you eat is as important as what you eat, so be mindful when eating.
Your body sends signals to the brain continuously, like when its hurting, hungry, and thirsty. Most people eat because its time to eat and not because their body is asking for food.
You have the power to listen to your body and are in control of how much you put into your stomach. You wouldn’t add water to a bucket if it’s already full, would you? So think of your stomach in that way.
By not overeating you are doing your digestive organs a favor. You are allowing them to work at an optimal level. And remember to drink a glass of water before you start your meal. Water work wonders within the body … you’ll see.
As you transition your approach to health and wellness from focusing on short term goals to cultivating a lasting lifestyle, you may find yourself struggling to quantify the shifts you feel in your mind, body, and spirit.
I suggest you shift your perspective and celebrate each small step along the way as you embrace your detox diet journey. Here are some action steps to guide you.
