I am doing a colon cleanse before i start a fairly large diet [at least 50 lbs by august!] and i was wondering what the colon does and how many pounds on average that you might loose. thanks!
Yes – you can lose weight with a colon cleanse!
The colon is part of your digestive system – it’s main function is to absorb the vitamins and nutrients from the food you eat, and to pass the waste on to… the end of the line. lol!
The problem is that our digestive system isn’t set up to process a lot of the foods we eat – like meat products, processed foods and some dairy. Little bits can get left behind in the colon and, over time, these can really add up, leading to weight gain, gas, bloating and even more serious conditions like diverticulitis.
This is where colon cleanse products come in – they help to remove all this built up gunk and replace the natural bacteria that grow in your colon. When all the stuff comes out, it makes sense that you lose weight.
Personally, I lost about 43 pounds using colon cleanse products along with another supplement. To read my story, click on the link below:
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.
If you think that too much of unwanted toxins have accumulated inside your colon it may be time for you to go for a colon cleanse. Excess of waste matter in your colon can cause you to feel sick and depressed. On the other hand a clean colon will make you feel healthier and happier. So if you want a better life and make the most of it then get your colon cleansed.
One of the great benefits of having your colon cleansed is to lose excess weight. Of course having your colon cleaned will reduce your weight directly by quite a few pounds. But a clean colon will mean that you would be able to digest your food better. So you would no longer feel uncomfortable and would tend to stay away from junk foods. Since a major cause of binging is depression and having a clean colon helps you stay happy and cheerful, there is less chance of you going for a binging bout.
It must be understood that our country has the most number of reported cases of colon cancer among both men and women. This should obviously tell us to take extra care of our colon. Colon cleansing is a very important part of that process of care. As you are more aware of your colon health you will reduce the chances of colon cancer by that much.
A clean colon also has a very positive effect on your mind. You will no longer feel tired or depressed. You will remain always cheerful and there would be renewed interest in life. You will once again be ready to do things which you would have been afraid of lately. In fact it is told that having a clean colon also improves one’s sex drive.
Eliminating waste from your body can also ensure that you will have less of aches and pains. The toxins produced by the waste matter are often held responsible for headaches. You will no longer need to worry about those headaches any more. Get your colon cleansed and such headaches will be a thing of the past.
Undergoing a colon cleansing program will also make you look good with a skin that will glow and feel much better. The effects of ageing are significantly reduced if you go for colon cleansing. After the process you will not only feel younger, you will look much younger too.
