One of the biggest reasons I see in my practice nutritionally why people don’t lose weight is Toxicity.
(Don't feel like reading? You can watch the video above with the same information!)
We become toxic from our beauty products like shampoos, lotions, perfumes, what we’re cleaning our homes with, processed and convenience foods and the environment around us. Our toxic exposure is incredibly high and toxic exposure is a big contributor to diseases like cancer.
Now, our bodies have the ability to break those toxins down and eliminate them, but we need to nutritionally support those processes.
If we’re eating a lot of convenience foods and fast foods and we’re not getting enough whole foods, specifically fruits and vegetables, we’re not supporting those metabolic pathways in our liver and our body isn’t capable of breaking down and eliminating those toxins.
So, it does the next best thing -which is to wrap it in a fat cell and store it. The problem with that is we end up with toxic bodies and our bodies become really resistant to weight loss and fat loss because it has to deal with the toxins stored inside.
Remember, our bodies number one priority is to protect us first and foremost.
This is why the Shred10 program using Juice Plus products works so well, because the only foods your body needs to support these metabolic pathways are plant foods. If you’re getting a variety of plant foods into your body every single day, then you’re supporting those metabolic pathways and your body’s ability to break down and eliminate these toxins.
Most of us are not getting the recommended 7-13 servings every day of a wide variety of fruits and veggies, not even myself who is a nutritionist. When I stop and think about it, I really eat the same foods over and over and I don’t get the wide variety of fruits and veggies that ultimately my body needs.
The Shred10® program that I’ve been running and am running again very soon is designed to give your body what it needs and eliminate what it doesn’t need, so your body can break down and eliminate toxins, which then allows you to lose weight more easily, have brighter skin and a brighter smile, more energy, less foggy thinking and irritability and overall vastly improved health with the ability to fight off illness and disease.
Our next Shred10 will be starting soon, so if you want in on this Jumpstart to shredding the habits that no longer serve you, send me a message here and I’ll help you get started.
Until next time,
