Feelings of fatigue and lack of energy can be diminished simply by changing your eating habits. A body cleansing meal plan will guide you through the key foods to eat to clean out your digestive tract of the chemicals, toxins and fats that have built up over the years. Without realizing it, we regularly contribute to the general wearing down of our inside simply by eating and drinking things that are unhealthy. Processed and artificial foods as well as beverages with alcohol and caffeine dump sugars into our body to be absorbed by fat. Sugars wreak havoc on our bodies and contribute to the deterioration of our arteries. This can ultimately lead to obesity, diabetes and heart failure.
Starting a body cleansing meal plan doesn’t require any special hard –to- find foods, pills or supplements. I it is simply about changing what you eat to eliminate the cravings for fats and sugars and eating foods that promote overall body health.
The first step is to eat only fruits before noon. The natural occurring sugars in fruits help curb your sweet tooth without sending your body on a sugar high and low roller coaster. Fruits are also a great source of fiber, which helps curb hunger. Blueberries, strawberries and raspberries are loaded up with powerful antioxidants that fight off free radicals. Free radicals are lurking around our bodies slowly destroying how well it functions. The second step in the body cleansing meal plan is not to mix starches and carbohydrates during lunch and dinner.
Gas, bloating and constipation are just a few of the signs that your body is not digesting foods properly. It takes two different enzymes to breakdown carbohydrates and starches. When you eat a meal, such as pasta with meatballs, and combine these two enzymes they partially neutralize each other which slows digestion and nutrient absorption. Within a few weeks you will feel more energized and see improvements in your skin, hair and nails.
An additional ways to help make the most out of your body cleansing meal plan is to increase your intake of sulfur. Increasing sulfur in the body leads to an increase in bile production. An increase in bile production results in better liver function. Egg yolks, onion and garlic are all high in fiber. For garlic it is important to eat 2-3 cloves per day of crushed garlic. The garlic needs to be crushed in order to release active ingredients. Sulfur also helps the body eliminate the chemicals, toxins and waste that are built up in your tissues.
For the best digestion, stop eating 2-3 hours before bed. While we are sleeping, digestion slow down. This can result in undigested foods remaining the stomach longer. While sticking to any body cleansing meal plan it is imperative to drink ample amounts of water. Water helps flush out the toxins in your body. The best water should be filtered, unflavored tap water. When eating drink warm or hot water to help promote healthy digestion. Cold water slows digestion. A person should drink half of their weight in ounces of water each day. Therefore, if you weigh 150lbs you should drink 75 ounces of water each day.
