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.
