Transitioning to a healthier lifestyle is not the easiest thing to do. Take it from the CEO of Dherbs, A.D. Dolphin, who had to turn his life around after developing unhealthy eating habits over 15 years ago. He was introduced to cleansing and has been introducing the world to the Full Body Cleanse, Dherbs’ most popular product, ever since. A.D. stopped by the Breakfast Club to talk about how integral it is to regularly cleanse the body and continually eat healthier.

 

Breakfast Club radio hosts D.J Envy and Angela Yee are no strangers to living healthy. They recently opened a Brooklyn location of the Juices For Life franchise, which was started by Jadakiss and Styles P. The goal of the juicery is to spread awareness about eating your way healthy. If you ate your way into poor health, it stands to reason that you can eat your way out of it by putting beneficial foods in your body. This is exactly the message that A.D. has been promoting ever since he started Dherbs Inc.

 

A.D. gave each member of the Breakfast Club a cleanse, and they discussed it in great detail. The Full Body Cleanse completely immerses the user in a newer, healthier way of life because that is what it takes to turn your life around. Stay healthy, people!

Using these detox waters, you can help to improve digestion, release water, and boost metabolism.

One of the most important rules of cleansing or losing weight is staying hydrated. When you are continually replenishing your body with fluids, specifically water, you can help to boost your metabolism and flush toxins from your body. When you start to add ingredients to the water to enrich the nutrient content, you start to absorb those vitamins and minerals, which also help to promote natural detoxification.

 

Note: These detox waters are not sold in stores. You have to make them yourself, using fresh ingredients to reap maximum benefits.

 

These detox waters aim to do several things for your body. The various fruits, vegetables, and herbs work to hydrate your body, curb your cravings for unhealthy foods, remove toxins, prevent bloating, and improve overall digestion. By doing all of these things, you set yourself up on a path to achieve your weight loss goals. What you eat and how much you exercise will determine how much weight you lose.

 

You cannot expect to lose weight if you are eating poorly and are not exercising. These detox waters help you out, but they do not do the work for you. Let’s explore what some of our favorite ingredients do for the body.

 

Fruits:

The best fruits to add to your detox waters include apples, pineapple, grapefruit, kiwis, lemons, berries, or limes. All of these fruits are packed with antioxidants and enzymes that help to nourish cells during the detoxification process. A lot of these fruits are also rich in vitamin C, which helps to boost the metabolism and eliminate waste more rapidly.

 

Apple Cider Vinegar:

We always promote the use of raw apple cider vinegar, especially when it comes to the digestive system. Apple cider vinegar works to soothe digestive discomfort and the acetic acid works to suppress appetite and reduce the number of calories that enter the bloodstream. Additionally, it helps the body release excess water.

 

Cinnamon:

While cinnamon may seem like an odd ingredient to add to water, this spice works to improve insulin secretion, which stabilizes blood sugar levels and increases glucose metabolism; these things are integral to the weight loss process. Cinnamon also gives you the sensation of being full. Pair it with fresh apples and a tablespoon of raw honey.

 

There are many other ingredients you can use to make detox waters sensational. Try some of the following recipes and let us know how they work out for you. For all of the recipes, combine the ingredients in a large pitcher or water bottle, refrigerate for a couple hours to let the flavors infuse, and then enjoy drinking it throughout the day!

 

Strawberry, Lemon, & Mint:

  • 1 lemon, cut into thin rounds
  • 10-15 strawberries, tops thinly sliced
  • 5-6 mint leaves
  • 4 cups filtered water

Weight Loss Lemonade:

  • Juice of 1 large lemon
  • 2 tablespoons raw honey
  • ¼ cup grated ginger
  • 2 cups lukewarm filtered water

Grapefruit Cider Vinegar:

  • 2 red grapefruits, cut into thin rounds
  • 2 tablespoons raw apple cider vinegar
  • 4 cups filtered water
  • ice cubes, for serving

Citrus Mint Detox Water:

  • 4 limes, cut into thin rounds
  • 2 lemons, cut into thin rounds
  • 1 handful fresh mint leaves
  • 4 cups filtered water

Cucumber, Lemon, Ginger, And Mint:

  • 1 medium cucumber, cut into thin rounds
  • 1 lemon, cut into thin rounds
  • 10-12 mint leaves
  • 1 tablespoon grated ginger
  • 4 cups filtered water

Hunger Vs Appetite: What’s The Difference? https://www.dherbs.com/articles/hunger-vs-appetite-whats-the-difference/ https://www.dherbs.com/articles/hunger-vs-appetite-whats-the-difference/#comments Wed, 06 Jun 2018 11:30:58 +0000 https://www.dherbs.com/?p=81519 How do you know when you are actually hungry or if you just have a craving? Learn how to feel satiated while you are cleansing.

]]>

By adopting the raw foods diet that accompanies any of our cleanses, it is common to experience feelings of hunger. People typically don’t eat enough while they are cleansing, which can lead to fatigue or headaches. On the other end of the spectrum, people may also feel as though they don’t need to eat or don’t want to eat. It’s important to eat, people! It is also good to recognize the difference between hunger and appetite.

 

The Difference Between Hunger And Appetite:

Food keeps you going, which is why you need to keep replenishing your body with sustenance. Hunger is the need for food; for example, you may feel some sort of discomfort if you have not eaten for a while. Hunger typically indicates that glucose levels in the blood are low and it is your body’s way of telling you to fuel up again. Appetite, on the other hand, is a sensory reaction when you see or smell food. This means that you can eat food even if you aren’t hungry.

 

Appetite has been closely linked to behavior because it is commonly associated with an emotional connection formed with food. Someone with an increased appetite doesn’t necessarily crave something like broccoli or carrot sticks. These cravings are typically for processed foods, refined sugars, caffeine, or fatty/acidic foods. This is because appetite controls your cravings and is influenced by how you react to food. Hormonal factors or stress, for example, can also lead to an increased or decreased appetite.

 

Because of the fast-paced, on-the-go world that we live in, people don’t have the time to feel satiated. People eat while they are distracted, driving some place, or watching videos/shows, all of which keep them from feeling like they have eaten enough food. You may feel satiated after eating something that has been deep-fried because it is full of energy, but it doesn’t contain micronutrients. Eating half of an avocado, for instance, gives you sustained energy via the monounsaturated fats and 19 essential vitamins and minerals. The battle to acknowledge cravings and choose the better and more beneficial food option is ongoing.

 

We can’t talk about hunger and appetite without mentioning the metabolism, which ultimately affects hunger. Metabolism is the rate at which the body converts food to energy. The speed of your metabolism is regulated by the thyroid gland, but metabolism is also influenced by muscle mass and hormones. People with more muscle mass typically have a higher metabolic rate, typically meaning that they have a greater level of hunger. But…this is not always the case, due to hormonal and emotional factors.

 

Your brain chases satiety (signaling that you have eaten), not the feeling of a full stomach. The brain gets signaled by different hormones to indicate whether or not food is needed. Eating different foods can change the dopamine output to the brain’s reward center, which controls your motivation for food. Lower levels of dopamine have been linked to overeating. 

How Do You Know When To Eat?

Remember that you have to eat more on a raw foods diet. If your body is telling you that it is hungry, listen to it. If you eat a meal and feel that you are still hungry, perhaps your meal was not large enough. While cleansing, many people say that they ate salad for a meal, but how big was this salad? You have to eat a large bowl, and we mean a large bowl. A small side salad will not fill you up. The amount of food each person will need to eat is dictated by his/her weight, age, and level of physical activity, so there isn’t a blanket statement for how much one should eat and when.

Be Patient After Eating:

Feeling full is the result of the brain reacting to chemicals that are in the foods or liquids in the stomach. It may take 20 minutes for the brain to register these chemicals. If you do not feel full directly after you finish eating, give yourself some time to absorb the nutrients you just consumed. As the chemical levels rise, the hunger will dissipate.

Tips For Feeling Satiated:

Always drink a hefty glass of water about 10 minutes before each meal. Not only is this a great way to stay hydrated, but the brain will realize that you are partially full by the time you actually start eating. Have another glass of water while you are eating, drinking between bites. Not only does this slow down your eating, but it also helps you to thoroughly chew each bite. Once you finish your meal, remove any food from your sights and occupy yourself with another hobby like reading, walking, or conversation.

 

Always remember that foods containing added sugars, refined sugars, or artificial sweeteners can stimulate your appetite, even if you aren’t hungry. They can make you crave carbohydrates and even stimulate fat storage, which is how a lot of people start to gain weight.

Achieving your weight loss goals can be difficult, even discouraging, at times, especially when you feel like the weight is no longer coming off. Several causes can result in a plateau, so to speak, and Dherbs CEO, A.D. Dolphin, has tips to help you achieve your desired weight.

 

Over the past couple months, A.D. has helped a woman, Rachel, get in shape for summer. Rachel is a 40-year old mother with a three-year old daughter and her goal was to set a healthy example for her. She struggled with weight loss for quite some time and felt like she had exhausted all her options. At a weight of 200lbs, she thought that the only thing left to do was accept “just being fat.”

 

Being an avid Steve TV watcher, Rachel reached out to the show asking for weight loss assistance. Steve Harvey put her in touch with his health coach, A.D., who put Rachel on a life-changing plan, the Dherbs Full Body Cleanse. Alongside her cleansing experience, A.D. helped her exercise for her body type and even went to various classes with her to support her on her health journey.

 

Watch Rachel reveal her new body and see how A.D. helped Rachel along the way in the clip below.

Abandon The Car For National Bike To Work Day 2018 https://www.dherbs.com/articles/abandon-the-car-for-national-bike-to-work-day-2018/ https://www.dherbs.com/articles/abandon-the-car-for-national-bike-to-work-day-2018/#comments Thu, 17 May 2018 23:40:28 +0000 https://www.dherbs.com/?p=80972 Dust of the old bicycle and get to pedaling because May 18th is National Bike To Work Day. Click on this article for great bike riding tips.

The month of May is National Bike Month and National Bike To Work Day is the third Friday in May. Bike-related events happen from coast to coast this entire month! National Bike Month was actually established by the League of American Bicyclists in 1956 and it gives people the chance to experience the many benefits of biking. More people might even start biking regularly!

 

While we are celebrating National Bike To Work Day on May 18th, 2018, we encourage people to get those pedals moving anywhere they desire. People ride bikes to lessen their carbon footprint, to get a cardiovascular workout, or they just ride for fun with the family. Biking is a healthy alternative to driving and more people should give it a shot. In fact, the number of American bicycle commuters grew by more than 47% from the year 2000 to 2011.

 

How To Ride:

Bicycles are designed to have your body be in a position for smooth aerodynamic movement. You should not feel discomfort in your neck, back, knees, or wrists; if you do then you probably need to adjust the seat placement, seat height, or handlebar height. You can visit a bike shop for helpful tips on how to properly adjust your bicycle.

 

Important Tip #1: You should never be leaning forward so that all of your weight is resting on the handlebars. It is integral to keep your back straight and shoulders down to keep you from hunching over. Sit back in your seat to avoid pressure on your wrists.

 

When you are pedaling, the extended leg should be pretty straight, but it should have a subtle bend. You want to avoid locking your kneecap, so lower the seat if this is the case. You also want to ensure that your seat isn’t too far forward or too far back. Your kneecap should be directly over the ball of your foot. Additionally, make sure you aren’t reaching too far for the handlebars. Your back should be at a 45-degree angle to avoid neck, shoulder, and wrist discomfort.

 

Important Tip #2: Do not pedal in a way that your knees go out to the sides. Not only is this bad for your hips and knees, but it also means that you are not engaging your inner thighs, which you should be using.

 

We hope you get on two wheels and pedal your heart out on your way to work tomorrow! If you can’t bike to work, try to go on a bike ride this weekend.

Why This Detox Drink Is A Must Have Every Day https://www.dherbs.com/articles/why-this-detox-drink-is-a-must-have-every-day/ https://www.dherbs.com/articles/why-this-detox-drink-is-a-must-have-every-day/#comments Wed, 16 May 2018 00:05:02 +0000 https://www.dherbs.com/?p=80904 Are you tired of feeling sluggish? Do you want to feel rejuvenated every day? Drink this detox beverage to flush toxins from the body.

In the present day, people are constantly exposed to everyday chemicals and pollutants that can negatively affect their health. People most commonly ingest these chemicals by way of processed foods or hormone-filled meats & dairy products; however, they can also be absorbed via beauty products, clothing, furniture, or airborne toxins.

 

This toxic overload can prompt the body to experience a variety of symptoms, including bloating, fatigue, sore muscles, acne, and impaired digestive function. To help maintain a healthy body and avoid feeling sluggish, it is beneficial to consume an easy-to-make beverage to help with regular cleansing. You can add the drink in this article to your daily routine to help feel more energized and clear-headed.

 

Lemon Juice:

While lemons contain citric acid, they have an alkalizing effect on the body when you ingest them. In addition to boosting energy levels and improving your immune function, lemons work to reduce oxidative stress by fighting free radicals.

 

Ginger:

Magnesium, potassium, and chromium all help to promote healthier blood circulation. Ginger has all three of these minerals and more! A mere 5 slices of raw ginger can help to improve circulation and overall heart health. In fact, Eastern cultures have used ginger to optimize heart health for thousands of years.

 

Cayenne:

There’s a reason why eating this spice helps you stay warm. In addition to containing more vitamin C than oranges, cayenne has been known to increase metabolic rate. Cayenne also helps strengthen arteries and blood vessels. The best way to eat this spice is to add it to salad dressings, nut pastes, or in homemade juices.

 

Cinnamon:

Because cinnamon has strong anti-inflammatory properties, it has been proven to lower the risk of high cholesterol, high blood pressure, and other forms of heart disease. The properties in cinnamon help to reduce bad levels of cholesterol, while keeping good cholesterol levels the same. It also helps your blood clot!

 

Ingredients:

  • 12-16 ounces filtered warm water
  • 2 tablespoons raw apple cider vinegar
  • ½ teaspoon ginger powder
  • ¼ teaspoon cinnamon
  • dash of cayenne pepper
  • 2 tablespoons freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon raw agave for sweetening (optional)

Instructions:

  • Stir the apple cider vinegar into the warm water and then add the ginger, cinnamon, and cayenne and mix well.
  • Finally stir in the lemon juice and raw agave if you’d like to sweeten the drink.
  • It is beneficial to drink this once a day 20 minutes before breakfast or lunch.

A.D. Dolphin Explains Why It’s Harder For Women To Lose Weight https://www.dherbs.com/articles/womens-health/a-d-dolphin-explains-why-its-harder-for-women-to-lose-weight/ https://www.dherbs.com/articles/womens-health/a-d-dolphin-explains-why-its-harder-for-women-to-lose-weight/#comments Mon, 14 May 2018 23:52:10 +0000 https://www.dherbs.com/?p=80818 It can be frustrating when you are working so hard, but aren't losing any weight.

A.D. Dolphin will appear on Steve TV Tuesday, May 15th, 2018, to explain why it is harder for women to lose weight. There are a couple reasons why women have more difficulty shedding unwanted pounds. First off, men typically have more muscle mass than women, meaning that they have a faster resting metabolism, which helps men burn calories at a faster rate (roughly 3-10% faster). According to research, women also have more of an emotional attachment to food than men do.

 

Another reason why it is harder for women to lose weight is because of hormonal fluctuation. Certain things hormones can cause are stress eating, binge eating, or cravings for foods that are sugary, fatty, and salty, all of which lead to weight gain. Women can lose weight and commit to healthier lifestyles, but it may take a little more effort. And A.D. is going to share the information that women need to help them achieve their weight loss goals.

 

One woman, Kaiya, who he helped lose weight, will accompany him on the show to talk about her success. After some personal hardships and multiple attempts to lose weight, Kaiya didn’t know if losing weight was possible, but she knew that she needed a lifestyle change. A.D. extended a helping hand and has propelled her toward a healthier lifestyle. Watch her reveal her new body and listen to A.D. give more weight loss and cleansing tips in the clip below.

What You Need To Know About Strength Training https://www.dherbs.com/articles/what-you-need-to-know-about-strength-training/ https://www.dherbs.com/articles/what-you-need-to-know-about-strength-training/#comments Tue, 17 Apr 2018 12:15:54 +0000 https://www.dherbs.com/?p=79300 Exercising is an integral part of cleansing because it can help you reach your goals. Here are some important things to know about exercising.

Strength training is a great way to build muscle and burn fat. It can help you retain existing muscle and boost your metabolism in the process. It helps to boost the metabolism by increasing your Resting Metabolic Rate (RMR). Your RMR is the rate at which your body burns energy at a complete rest. For every pound of muscle you gain, your RMR increases by 30-50 calories, meaning your body must use more calories to maintain muscle than it does to maintain fat.

 

In addition to boosting your metabolism, strength training is a great way to boost your mood, relieve anxiety, decrease stress, improve cholesterol levels, and improve overall blood flow. This is enticing to a lot of people, but some people get intimidated or don’t know where to start. We have several workout routines in our Articles section that can help ease you into strength training, so you aren’t going from zero to sixty and setting yourself up for failure.

Have You Done Workout Training?

If you have never done any of the exercises that you come across, always start out with your bodyweight. Let’s say you encounter an exercise that requires dumbbells. Hold two water bottles or two things that are very lightweight to take the place of dumbbells. The idea behind not using any additional weight is to focus on form. Maintaining correct form is more important than lifting heavy. Doing exercises improperly can increase your risk of injury.

Adding Weight:

Dumbbells are great strength training tools. While most gyms have an array of dumbbells, you may only need a couple sets or an adjustable dumbbell set at home. Additionally, dumbbells are less intimidating than barbell training, e.g. bench presses, squats, or deadlifts. They also help you work harder at balancing during the exercise.

What Are Reps & Sets?

A rep, or repetition, is a single movement through a range of motion and back again. A full movement, from start to finish, of a squat, push-up, dip, or pull-up is considered to be a single rep. A group of reps is called a set. If the exercise calls for two sets of ten reps, you will do ten consecutive reps, rest, and repeat ten reps.

Combos:

Most of our workouts are combo exercises, especially if you are using our second and third exercise guides. By using combo workouts, you don’t have to exercise for long periods of time. Additionally, you exercise various muscle groups when you do combo exercises, as opposed to doing exercises that focus on a specific area of the body. The important thing to remember is to not rest between combos.

 

We hope you enjoyed these strength training tips and wish you well on sculpting your body.
