You could need a detox. Our bodies are bombarded by toxins in our environment and food. So how does detoxing help me with weight loss? One of the jobs of the fat cell is to hold and sequester toxins keeping them from the vital organs. When we detox, we release the toxins from the cells thus releasing the fat with it. It is important that you drink a lot of water during detox to flush out the toxins and fat. I will often put people on a detox program when they want to lose weight to kick start the release of fat.
So how does one detox? There are so many detox programs (kits) available today at nutrition house. You can start by doing a liver detox first, then a full body detox. Some kits are for one week, some for 2 weeks and some for 30 days. Some of them are really easy to follow you simply take the products as directed on the product. I always suggest that you don’t eat red meat or pork during the detox to give the digestive system a break. Proteins such as fish and chicken are far easier to digest. I also suggest that you don’t eat any wheat or gluten or dairy during the detox phase. This will not only help you lose weight quicker but you will feel so much more energy after 48-72 hours.
After the detox phase, stick to the keto diet as instructed in my blog. You should have lost some weight during the detox which will keep you motivated to continue with your low carb diet. Visit your local nutrition house store and ask the sales expert to guide you to the right detox for you. Good luck!
