HEALTH BENEFITS OF A DETOX DIET PLAN

  DETOX DIET PLAN If you are looking to improve your general health, or have a specific health condition that you are wanting to support, starting a detox diet may be helpful for you. Detox diets can take many shapes and forms, ranging from an increase in gentle physical activity while drinking more water and eating more whole foods, to a program of formulated meals, herbal medicines, and/or nutritional supplements. Many doctors and dieticians, including The Mayo Clinic, consider doing detox diets unnecessary, as the body is actually processing and detoxifying every single day. But in modern life, we are dealing with a regular onslaught of chemicals and pollutants never before experienced in human history. For more info on what detox diet will be best for you, talk with your doctor, nutritionist or naturopath. Better Energy Many people report improved energy levels following a detox diet, and this is often the main reason people begin a detox diet in the first place. While there are still sceptics from both the lay and the medical community, there are in fact multiple studies that show short-term fasting protocols have significant benefits for memory, cognition, and energy levels.

Protein Shake Diet For Weight Loss

THE PROTEIN SHAKE DIET.  If you are looking to lose weight in a way that benefits your health, you may want to go onto a protein shake diet. Protein is made out of essential amino acids that you need from the diet to build new tissues, balance blood sugars and stabilise metabolism. Though most people eat high-protein foods with their main meals, protein powders have a much higher protein content per 100g, which assists with weight loss without having to starve the body of food.  How The Protein Shake Diet Works In the protein shake diet, you replace anywhere from one to three main meals with shake or smoothie, made up of your chosen protein powder and water. In order to avoid malnutrition, you may want to add other ingredients into your shake, such as fibre (flaxseed, psyllium, LSA, green leafy vegetables, slippery elm, etc), fat (healthy fats that support weight loss, including Greek yogurt, flax oil, fish oil, etc), minerals (kelp powder) and vitamins (berries, fresh fruit, dried fruit, etc). Over time, the high protein in the daily diet helps to balance the body in a number of ways. Research shows that ingesting protein shakes regularly has a significant effect on body ...

Why Can't I Lose Weight? That's the question many people ask when their weight loss plan isn't working. Asking yourself 'Why can't I lose weight?' is actually one of the best things you can do for yourself. It says you know that what you're currently doing isn't working for you. You're at the place where you're ready to look at alternatives - try something different to get a result you want. So why can't you lose weight? Here are 3 possible reasons you may not be losing weight - and some suggestions on what you can do about it. #1) Medical Reasons Now this is not the same as saying you're genetically programmed to be overweight.

Cholesterol Diet

Cholesterol Diet - The single biggest influence for our cholesterol condition. Cholesterol was not a factor when Charles Darwin's proposed his theory "Survival of the fittest". He would certainly re-write his theory if he existed today, battling with the cause himself. Survive - we do: fittest -? that needs speculation, with half of the world population battling with a cholesterol diet condition. Our ancestors had lived most of their life feeding on fruits, grasses, herbs, nuts, leaves, roots, water , seeds, cereals and hunting meat which was often a daunting task without the four wheel drives and buffalo shotguns. Today, surviving, unlike our ancestors is not fighting with tigers, running after antelopes, or working the ground for roots. It is often fighting with ourselves that makes us weak. Of the fierce predators is the commonplace cholesterol which we find in abundance. Cookies, cakes, colas, chemicals, pesticides, chocolate, cool drinks, preservatives and the list could go on for a few hundred pages. Some people develop dangerous tumors. Other people have Cholesterol levels that are through the roof. For you, your  Cholesterol intake and lifestyle are causing the condition commonly referred to as Cholesterol diet. This condition is simply a SYMPTOM of a very fundamental and dangerous ...
