Spring has arrived! Just as we get rid of unnecessary waste in our houses, we must also get rid of the toxic waste that has built up in our bodies. This is the time to reactivate health goals from the New Year. Follow through on your goal so that you can attain the healthy body you desire.
Tip #1: 80% Diet, 20% Exercise
“When it comes to losing weight, most people don’t realize that it is 80% diet and 20% exercise.” A lot of people think that exercise will magically make the weight fall off. The exercise doesn’t cancel out a poor diet of processed foods, meat, dairy products, and junk foods. “Eat the foods that help clean out your body while providing it with the nutrients it needs. These foods include fresh fruits, vegetables, nuts & seeds, legumes, and whole grains.” And it’s also important to learn how to work out for your body type. Try doing higher reps with lighter weight, or get your sweat on by doing hot yoga.
Tip #2: Cleanse, Cleanse, and, oh yeah, Cleanse
Taking part in the Dherbs Full Body Cleanse is one of the best ways to get rid of that winter weight you’ve been harboring. “The cleanse consists of 6 herbal formulas that are geared to clean out your major eliminative channels. That’s your heart, your colon, your liver, gallbladder, kidneys, your colon, your spleen, your lungs, your adrenal glands, your blood, and your skin.” You can hold up to 25lbs of undigested food within your body. The cleanse helps clear that waste from your system and when you step on the scale after the cleanse, “…it will reflect a smaller number than where you started.”
Tip #3: Flush Your System with Water & Teas
“Staying hydrated is one of the best ways to keep things moving through your body.” Drinking enough water each day helps improve circulation and keep your skin looking healthy. You can add herbal teas to your beverage list to reap their benefits as well. “Great examples of teas include, mint, ginger, lemon, chamomile, dandelion, and hibiscus, all of which have different cleansing properties that help nourish the organs in your body.”
Tip #4: Manage Stress Levels
Stress is not something that you want around when you’re trying to achieve your health goals. Stress hormones can cause you to have unhealthy cravings and can inhibit a healthy sleep schedule. “Since stress can cause inflammation, it is best to practice deep breathing exercises or stress-relieving exercises like yoga or Tai Chi.” Another thing to be aware of is that stress can cause blockages in the body’s eliminative channels. “Make sure you eat magnesium rich foods like avocados, bananas, almonds, Brazil nuts, or dark leafy greens to lower stress levels.”
Tip #5: Drink Homemade Smoothies & Juices
“I love drinking homemade smoothies when I’m cleansing my body. It is one of the best ways to load up on a variety of essential vitamins and minerals.” Freshly made juices and smoothies can provide your body with healthy enzymes that help promote healthy gut flora, which is beneficial for a healthy digestive tract. “Don’t buy bottled juices because they usually have sugar and preservatives.” The advantage of consuming your own juices or smoothies is that you have control of making them. Use cleansing fruits and vegetables like chard, kale, beets, apples, cucumber, lemon, carrot, blueberries, ginger, parsley, and pears.
