Why is important?
For many people, discussing about digestive problems can be hard which leaves them suffering in silence. But a healthy, functional gastrointestinal system is important so we are in perfect conditions to clean out what we don’t need and keep what will cover our bodies’ necessities.
Detox to Burn Fat & Lose Weight!
Chemicals and toxins initially accumulate in fat tissue. The more chemicals and toxins in the body, the more fat the body will manufacture as a natural protectant, keeping toxins away from the liver, kidneys and brain. Therefore, in terms of countering body toxins, fat has its upsides.
However, the body will store fat as long as it is exposed to high toxic levels. This toxin-body fat paradox is at the foundation of why dieting and losing weight is challenging, and many times, disappointing. Therefore, it is essential to decrease toxin levels to give the body a fighting chance to rid itself of fat permanently.
What’s the answer to the toxin/body fat paradox?
Detoxification is a core failure in most diet programs since most typically ignore body toxins and focus solely on weight loss. Most diet plans will deprive the body of the essential nutrients necessary to maintain health and lean muscle. Any weight loss through these means is primarily a result of a loss from water and lean muscle. Minimal fat is lost because these “diets” rarely address the issue of cleansing toxins from the system. Without proper cleansing, the lost lean muscle and water eventually return as fat, thus creating fatter versions of our prior selves. This is commonly known as the yo-yo effect.
To effectively lose weight, we must first effectively lose toxins. We are becoming more aware of the importance of eating sensibly, exercising moderately, drinking sizeable quantities of clean water, consuming quality supplements, and managing weight. There is no shortage of diet plans. They may each have a slightly different viewpoint, but the same basic formula remains – low carbs, low calories, low fat, low success. Our diet is much more comprehensive than placing emphasis solely on restriction of certain foods. In reality, a diet is anything we put into our mouths: food, beverages, the air we breathe, and what penetrates our skin. True ‘dieting’ is being aware of and appropriately moderating what we allow into our bodies through all avenues. Taking this into consideration, do we want to be healthy, clean and lean? If so, then we need to modify our lifestyles to incorporate the removal of toxins from our body’s cells. This, in addition to sensible eating and effective exercise, will send us on our way to a lifetime of improved health and wellness. Remember that a toxic body can make weight loss impossible, as toxins contribute to excess weight, cellulite, and the inability to lose weight, even when on a strict diet program.
There is of course a much better defense to toxic living than storing excess weight.
