December Detox - Say No to December Weight Gain

Let's face it most of us are one of these, chronic snackers (eat all day), binge eaters (only eating once a day) or make poor food choices (fast food) most of the time. During the holiday season it's seems worse!  Everywhere there are cookies, cakes, pies, chips, or basically anything processed in sight, we eat it, then immediately regret it. You know you are not going to feel good but you eating anyway. Processed foods and foods high in fat, sugar, sodium and cholesterol can quickly leave you feeling bloated, fatigued, and, well, yuck. 

I say, let's nip this in the bud. Join us for our December Detox Healthy for the Holidays, let’s work on staying and getting healthy during December and get a Jump Start on January this year. You don’t have to be one of the millions who gain 10 – 15 lbs. over the holidays this year.

In  7 Day Detox Plan to Kick-start Your Metabolism. She like many of us decided enough is enough. She had decided to "detox" her body of all the junk she continually put into it and flush out as many toxins as possible. 

To discuss detoxing plans, New York City dietitian Maria Bella, founder of Top Balance Nutrition in New York and Miami weighted in.  Bella suggested that we should stop using the word "detox." She explains: "'Detoxing' has become such a fad lately, from juice cleanses to craze diets, but these often have no scientific research to back them up and leave you feeling tired and hungry. The scientific truth is your body has natural detox capabilities when your diet is full of whole foods including whole grains, fruits, vegetables, lean protein and healthy fats."

Dr. Mehmet Oz weighs in with his article Eliminate harmful toxins and reset your body with a detox “When a detox is done right, it’s just another word to describe a diet rich in whole foods. By removing artificial flavors and chemical substances from your diet, you’re helping prepare your body to live a healthier and more natural lifestyle.

I prefer Dr. Mitra Ray, developer of Transform30 & Shred10 explanation in her Message on DetoxificationThe body is a miraculous machine and when it is operating optimally, it can repair damaged tissue and cleanse dead material out of the body as well as foreign chemical pollutants. This is done by the numerous biochemical reactions that require a whole plethora of enzymes. However, without the variety of plant matter in the modern diet, for most of us, this process of detoxification remains incomplete.

This is because with our modern diet, we do not get enough vegetables and fruits in our diet to adequately nourish all the cells to make their full complement of enzymes to facilitate all the possible trillions 
of biochemical reactions that the body wants to engage in to operate optimally.”

They all agree. Detoxification using fruits, and veggies is your best bet, to sustaining good health. The frequency is up for debate. I choose Shred10 once a month, to get myself back on track, it a continuous cycle, cleanse, detox, rejuvenate, repeat your way to longevity
