You cannot expect to improve your metabolism, lose weight permanently, or drastically increase your metabolism without first cleaning out all of the built up âsludgeâ that may have accumulated inside your eliminatory system/colon.
Skipping this step will make the weight loss/fat loss process far harder, and it will create a destiny for you of achieving only temporary results.
There are 3 initial steps to take for your cleanse to be most effective:
1stâ¦Decide how long you want your cleanse to last. I usually recommend to my personal clients that their cleanse last no less than 1 full day and no longer than 7-10 days. For example, if they have lived a life of eating fast food and little or no physical activity, then their cleanse should last closer to the 7-10 day mark. But if they have lived a healthy! life, eating lots of fresh raw vegetables, exercising regularly, and possibly even doing another type of cleanse every now and thenâ¦then you need only follow this cleanse 1 or 2 days in a row (but most of my clients â even those who come to me in excellent condition, usually choose to stay on the cleanse longer than just 1 â 2 daysâ¦the average is 3 â 5 days initially, then once a month thereafter they can do a mini cleanse lasting 1 â 2 days).
2ndâ¦Decide what youâre going to consume on the cleanse (this is a great time to get all the junk food cleaned out of your kitchen â give it away, throw it away, just get rid of it â but donât get rid of it by eating it yourself!!!). After youâve cleaned out your kitchen, you should stock it with healthy foods, and the only healthy foods youâll be consuming on your cleanse are plain, fresh, clean water (preferably âdistilledâ or âpurifiedâ water), vegetable juices, and possibly some decaffeinated herbal tea (if you desire it).
The term âvegetable juiceâ, when used here, refers ONLY to juices that you juice yourself. So get yourself a vegetable juicer and a wide variety of fresh, raw, preferably organic vegetables. Then 2 or 3 times per day juice enough vegetables to fill a glass and drink it down (some people, including diabetics, find it beneficial to water down their juice with 50% water â this simply dilutes the sugar found in some vegetables).
You should add a small pinch of cayenne pepper to a few of your drinks throughout the day â this strengthens your blood, increases circulation, improves the assimilation of nutrients from the vegetable juices into your body, and helps your bowels eliminate the built up waste from your system (which gets rid of any constipation).
3rdâ¦Do some light cardiovascular exercise like walking or bike riding for 20 â 30 minutes each day of your cleanse. Avoid any heavy physical exertion if possible â your goal is to relax and let your system rebuild an! d repair itself during your cleanse. Finally, rent a funny movie and laugh (a lot). When you have a good laugh, your body secretes chemicals that aid in digestion and promote good metabolic health.
Review this or any other dietary or lifestyle changes with your physician first.
A far more thorough version of the cleanse is explained in detail in Maximize Your Metabolism, or you can have a cleanse and a diet designed just for you in one of Christopher’s e-classes or in his mentor program – information on all of these products and services can be found at www.MaximizeYourMetabolism.com.
This is an embarrassing question, but I have really bad constipation a lot of the time. My parents have been telling me for years to eat right, but I didn't listen because I didn't like healthy foods and it didn't really bother me, but as I've gotten older it's gradually gotten more and more painful. What should I do? My mom is willing to get me medicine for it. We already got Phillips stool softeners but they don't work much. It really hurts and I don't think I can handle it anymore, so I'm willing to do whatever I have to to make it stop. Please don't make fun of me, I know this is a question lots of people would love to make fun of, but I'm hoping a nice nurse or someone will answer. Thank you for your time and for helping me.
First go to a doctor if it as bad as you say. They will adive you on any futher action.
However the proper diet is usually key to solve constipation problems. To help my constipation I usually eat the following foods to help me. Of course not all of them in one sitting – wholemeal bread covered in honey or jam, weetabix, fruit – apples are especially good, hard boiled eggs.
Also natural remedies such as Senna will help too. You can get them in tablet form from most shops.
I hope that helps. I hope it gets better soon.
Although many people find it embarrassing to talk about colon health it is not something to be in denial of. Yes it is not something you discuss during dinner but there is no harm in knowing the basics as it might affect you one day. In fact most Americans these days suffer from some sort of colon ailment or the other.
Our colon is made to handle anything between 5 to 25 pounds of waste matter at a time. But since our dietary habits and our lifestyle has gone through a significant change our colon often finds it difficult to deal with the ‘excess baggage’. Before it starts showing serious problems it is always a good idea to get our colon cleansed. This will ensure nothing untoward happens because of our negligence and we can enjoy a fit and healthy body all our life.
The general prescription of your medical practitioner would be that you have to eat healthy foods and try to find some time out of your schedule which you can set aside for exercise. These are the best ways to maintain a healthy colon. While proper diet would mean plenty of fibers and water so that the waste matter can make its way out and the system remains clean, exercise also helps in good bowel movements and encourages us to have good eating habits. But the problem with this prescription is that you already need to have a colon in proper condition which can be taken care of by following these suggestions. But if your colon has already started to show problems then following these steps wouldn’t be enough. And your medical practitioner wouldn’t prescribe you laxatives as he would tell you that they are generally meant to be administered only before health examinations like the ultra-sonography and the x-ray.
In case you think your colon has a severe problem and you are always constipated or you feel bloated all the while you can try some of the colon cleansing herbs. But use them moderately as they are quite potent and the action is quite prompt. But as potent they are, they also come with some sever side effects if taken continuously for a considerable period of time. Consumption of these products regularly can lead to your organs like liver and kidneys being harmed. So it is advisable not to use them for over a week continuously.
