What is a detox?
Let’s start with what a detox is not. A detox is not a skinny tea, it is not a starvation diet, it is not a magic pill and it is not taking fat burners. Some people resort to these things as a type of quick fix, and while some may work, the results are only temporary. The weight will come back.
A true detox is when you are giving your organs a break, such as your liver, your kidneys and just your lymphatic system in general. By giving your organs a break, you are giving them a chance to rejuvenate, replenish the cells and get the toxins out.
There are many different ways you can get the toxins out of your body, but I always emphasize doing it through the use of whole foods and drinking a lot of water. This is what my 14 Day Detox is based on. This is a jumpstart program, meaning it is not just a quick fix to temporarily drop those extra pounds, but rather an introduction to a lifestyle that will help you clear out toxins and keep weight off.
When your body becomes sick, that sickness can manifest itself in many different ways. For example, you can begin to have acne on different areas of your face. Acne on your chin is usually an indication of issues with your intestines, acne on your upper lip can indicate hormonal issues, and acne on your forehead can indicate liver problem. Different ailments can begin to show up in different areas of your body.
Fat Loss and Detox
Fat loss begins with your liver, because that is your filtration system. Think of your body as a car. If you want your car to continue to run well, you make sure to get the oil changed and the air filters replaced so that you can keep it running clean and it doesn’t break down. So, why would you not apply this same concept to your body? You want it to keep running well and not break down, so you need to be sure that it runs clean by getting rid of the toxins. But unlike a car, you only have one body.
This is why you need to constantly detox. It is not something that you do for a week and you’re done. You need to constantly detox and replenish your cells and you can do this by eating whole foods. Your food, literally, becomes you, so when you begin to incorporate a whole food diet into your life, you are beginning a detox.
The Fat Loss Plateau
The build up of toxins is one reason that plateaus happen during fat loss and in order to get through this, you need to restart your metabolism. There are many different ways you can do this, but you want to make sure you do so in a way that is sustainable, so you can continue to keep that fat off, rather than gaining it all back.
Because of my background, I would never want to promote something that isn’t sustainable, healthy or realistic. No matter what you are doing in your life or how you try to avoid things that are not all natural, there are environmental toxins that you just can’t avoid, such as something that comes in contact with your skin or the air pollutant that you ingest just by breathing in the city air. Toxins find a way into your body. When you are toxic, it can manifest itself in many different ways, whether it be hormonal issues, where women aren’t able to have their menstrual cycles or you become fatigued. If you are fatigued, you are absolutely toxic, as it is not normal to walk around tired all day and you must to restart your system.
Restarting Your System
Restarting your system is important for clearing out the toxins in your body and for restarting your metabolism and your fat loss. This is why I highly recommend the 14 day Inner Goddess Detox. If you have already done this program, please let me know what it did for you. I’d love to hear your feedback!
Again, detox is something that you should do daily and not something you just do for a week and forget about. It isn’t just a quick fix, it is a higher quality lifestyle that you live. Get on the Detox and incorporate it into a whole food diet.
