Many of us associate a detox with deprivation, or sometimes even worse. Hunger, weird food and kale juice are the first things than come to mind. We ask ourselves that even though we might feel better at the end, is it really worth the pain and suffering? However, suffering doesn’t have to be part of a detox. A different kind of detox exists. A way that’s all about delicious food. This new kind of detox can be an amazing jump start for your health and completely reboot your metabolism. This revolutionary detox is fun, easy to do and a direct path to feeling great.
Tens of thousands of people suffer from the harmful effects of eating the wrong foods. These include industrial, factory-made foods and tons of sugar and flour. This type of diet can create struggles with weight. In addition, it completely derails your health.
Too many people feel terrible in there every day lives. A poor diet can show in annoying little symptoms such as pain in the joints or muscles, fatigue, headaches, allergies or gas.

5 REASONS YOU NEED TO DETOX
You feel terrible
When you wake up you don’t feel vital, joyful or full of energy. You might be thin but still have symptoms of being toxic. If you experience fatigue, brain fog, pains, digestive issues, allergies, and frequent headaches this detox can help you heal. Too many of us make the connection between what we eat and how we feeldon’t connect what we’re eating to how we feel. Instead, we put up with needless suffering. The good news is, you can start feeling good in only a few days.
You have trouble losing weight and keeping it off
For too long we’ve been told that losing weight is simple math. That keeping energy balance, calories in/calories out, and eating less and exercising more are the key to losing weight. As many people can testify, this is often not the case. The main problem is, theory greatly differs from practice. Practice has shown us that sugar and flour calories are very different. First, they can lead to addiction and overeating. Second, they make insulin spikes and result in inflammation. This makes you store belly fat and prevents you from feeling full. The conclusion is clear: sugar calories are worse than whole food calories. Sugar makes any attempt at long-term weight loss much, much harder.
You crave sugar and carbs
It’s been shown that both sugar and flour are biologically addictive. The facts that point to his are clear and conclusive. Still, too often we blame a fat person for their weight, considering them lazy or a glutton. This leads to shame and guilt. However, your biology has been abused by the food industry. They have figured out how to seduce your taste buds, brain chemistry, hormones and metabolism. Many food industries hire so-called “craving experts” whose purpose is to figure out how to create an addiction to junk food. In many ways sugar has become the new nicotine. It’s been shown that sugar is eight times more addictive than even cocaine! Trying to use only your willpower to lose weight will lead to failure. First you must learn how to free yourself from the addictive power of sugar, flour and over-processed foods.
You never have detoxed.
It’s sadly very common that most of us have never lived whole 10 days eating nothing except delicious, whole and clean food. You might feel good and think you are healthy; however your normal state might not be you at your best. Too many people do not realize that they could be functioning much better. You might think you are healthy and feel good, not realizing that your normal state is not your optimal state. A detox can be a kind of tune-up, a quick and easy way to boost your health.
You need a staycation
Sadly, none of us live in a way that best supports our health. We don’t sleep or exercise enough, while consuming too much bad food. Too much stress and not enough time for ourselves all lead to serious consequences for our health. The best way to quickly improve your life is by committing to a 10-day detox. This detox cuts out all toxins and drugs: sugar, flour, processed foods, caffeine and alcohol. It encourages self-nurturing behaviors such deep breathing, sleeping 7-8 hours, exercising and self-love. The combined effect gets your body and mind to their optimal settings very quickly!
5 WAYS TO DETOX, FEEL GREAT and LOSE WEIGHT
What is the way to detox without any pain and suffering? Is there really a shortcut to feeling great? The secret is that most of us are only a few days away from feeling healthy and happy. At the moment, you might be feeling pretty terrible; however food is the most powerful and simplest way to fix this. After all, we are what we eat.
Do it cold turkey.
Stopping completely is the best way to handle a true physiological addiction. Just as addicts can’t have just one drink, you need to go cold turkey. However, this won’t be a struggle if you follow the 5 ways to detox. They automatically reset your body’s neurotransmitters and hormones, bringing them back to normal. Cutting out sugar, flour products and artificial sweeteners is the first thing you need to do. All of them can cause increased cravings and slow down metabolism. This leads to fat storage. Liquid sugar calories are especially tricky. More sugar might be hiding in your latte than in a can of soda. Another thing to remove is anything that contains trans or hydrogenated fats and MSG.
Ideally, during these 10 days you will not consume any foods that are in a box, package or can. Stick to eating whole and fresh REAL food. Another important thing in order to truly detox is to give up all grains. After sugar, caffeine and alcohol are the two biggest drugs we consume. Give them up as well.
The Power of Protein
Eat protein at every meal. Breakfast is especially crucial, it’s the key to balancing blood sugar and insulin levels. Additionally, it will reduce cravings during the day. Begin your day with whole farm fresh eggs or a protein shake. Many different sources of protein are available. You can use nuts, seeds, eggs, fish, chicken or grass-fed meat for protein at every meal. Make sure you don’t overeat though! Serving sizes matter.
Eat plenty of carbs (the right ones).
Plenty of people don’t know enough about carbs. For example, did you know that vegetables are carbs? You can eat as much as you want. There is only one condition. You’re allowed to eat plenty of non-starchy vegetables. These include greens, broccoli, cauliflower, kale, collards, asparagus, green beans, mushrooms, onions, zucchini, tomatoes, fennel, eggplant, artichokes, peppers and many more. For 10 days, you may not consume potatoes, sweet potatoes, winter squash and beets. Another thing to skip is grains and beans. This will result in you losing weight while still feeling great!
Fight sugar with fat.
Fat is actually not the thing that makes you fat. That would be sugar. Fat has the great benefits of making you full, balancing your blood sugar and is necessary as fuel for your cells. In addition to protein, eat good fats with every meal and snack. Nuts and seeds are a great choice as they also contain protein. Extra virgin olive oil, coconut butter, avocados and omega-3 fats from fish are more great choices for a better detox.
Friends over willpower
Obesity has been shown to be contagious. If you are surrounded by people who are overweight, you are more likely to be overweight as well. Also, the chances of this are higher if your friends are overweight rather than your parents or siblings. On the same principle, health is contagious too. People who meet in small groups and offer help, love and support to each other are much more likely to lose twice the weight and become twice as healthy in comparison to those who try to do it alone. Finding a friend or two to do the detox with you can be extremely helpful!
