Losing Weight through Cleansing
Build up of toxic wastes in the liver and Fatty tissue may impede weight loss. Toxin deposits can lead to weight gain by repressing traditional weight loss efforts. Purifying the body of these toxic wastes will not only make you slimmer, but fitter and healthier too.
For those that are not familiar with the concept of cleansing, it may seem confuting to traditional weight loss techniques. Cleansing is not about counting your calories or restricting your hunger, instead it affects the body in a diverse way. Cleansing involves eating the right foods and taking supplements to purify your body of the toxic wastes that get stored in different organs such as liver or in the fatty tissues.
The Pattern of Weight Gain and Loss:
The scheme of weight gain and loss is simple; the body stores excess calories in the form of fats and when there is a food deficit, this stored fat is mobilized to fulfill energy requirements. This means that the body weight depends upon
- An individual’s particular metabolic rate
- His/Her daily food consumption
According to the new holistic approach, weight gain does not occur due to the calories; instead, it is the result of toxic chemicals present in our environment and in our food. Things such as pesticides, preservatives, artificial colors, added sweeteners etc.
How our Body deals with Toxins:
Nature has gifted our body some intricate systems to wash out the metabolic waste products. These toxins are excreted through colon, liver, lungs, skin and kidneys. However, when exposed to large amounts of such chemicals on a regular basis (food additives, air and water pollution etc.), the body may not be able to detoxify them properly.
These undetoxified chemicals are deposited in different body organs, mainly the liver, or are quarantined in the adipose (fatty) tissue.
Why Dieting is not always effective:
According to the above-mentioned theory, the body isolates the uneliminated toxins in the form of fats; therefore, a quick weight loss diet that does not help the body get rid of these toxins would be of short-term benefit only.
Cleansing is essential for a stable weight loss, as with out it, any weight loss effort would result in mobilization of stored fat, releasing the isolated toxins into the blood circulation. This affects the body in a negative way causing headaches, dizzines, fatigue, lethargy and other undesired effects.
To maintain its physiology, the body tends to quarantine the uneliminated toxins in fats, re-acquiring the lost weight, once the dieting is over.
A slimmer forever body through cleansing:
To shed off the extra pound for good, one needs to cleanse the body of the harmful toxins. To achieve this, the following protocole would help.
- Avoid DIETS:
Not the good one’s though. However, common diet drinks and sugar free junk is loaded with artificial food additives that undermine your efforts for achieving a slimmer figure.
- No WHITE:
Avoid white bread, white sugar, and white flour, as they are excessively refined and processed.
- Avoid ARTIFICIAL:
The artificial sweeteners in low calorie diets are more harmful than refined sugars. Go for healthier sweeteners such as honey or maple syrup, which not only prevent weight gain but also aid the pancreas by maintaining blood sugar levels.
- Eat MORE:
Instead of slowing down your metabolism by eating less, speed it up with the help of natural, easily processed sugars, and the abundant supply of enzymes found in raw fruits and vegetables. A well-maintained metabolic rate helps in clearing up fats and stored toxins.
- Eat NATURAL:
Go for organic fruits and vegetables. The non-organic variety contains pesticides that add up to the toxins in the body.
- Add ANTIOXIDANTS:
Eat healthy. Use more antioxidants as they not only aid weight loss but also promote better health. Use lots of fresh lemons, berries, raw virgin olive oil, coconut oil and apple cider vinegar.
