I am a big believer of using the foods we eat as medicine, as opposed to countless pills and tablets to sort us out. I take a very natural approach to being healthy, and it works. I am not a big promoter of ‘going on a diet’, and obviously, it is a short term solution to your problem.
What we are trying to achieve is a long term solution of consistent gradual fat loss through healthy eating choices and a good exercise programme. Before starting your new healthy eating initiative the first step I would advise is to undergo a period of detoxification, rather than a diet.
Why is it important to detox before changing your nutritional habits?
This will help you to get rid of some of the initial fat loss, give you a good start to eating right but most importantly get rid of a lot of the harmful toxins which will prevent you from losing fat effectively. So many people go on a diet without a period of detoxification first. They cut out all of the bad things that they consume at once and as they haven’t detoxed first they often become ill while dieting as their liver can’t handle the pressure. This leads to one thing which is returning to the bad habits and putting the weightback on.
