Naturopathic doctors and holistic nutritionists have understood the benefits of natural detox diets for years. They’ve been using these cleansing “rituals” to clear patients’ bodies of excess weight and accumulated toxins for centuries. Similar to fasting diets, these natural detox diets limit what an individual can eat or drink for a period of a day or more, allowing the body to process out (or purge):
Are you more interested in living a healthy lifestyle than simply losing weight? If so, you’re not alone. More and more people are making personal health a priority and tossing traditional dieting tactics to the curb.
Whether you’re a morning person or a night owl, we all start our day at some point. And we all seem to start it differently.
Some of us hop online to check social media, others dive in to email, still others eat breakfast, exercise, or pack lunches for the kids. There are a number of ways your morning could go. But one thing is for sure…….
Intermittent Fasting is not a new concept. Many cultures around the world have been fasting to demonstrate piety during holy days for centuries. However, fasting as a form of weight loss has often been saddled with a bad reputation. Many opponents say (often without scientific basis) that fasting is bad for you, that it depletes the body of necessary nutrients, and that it can destroy muscle mass in as little as 12 hours.
Don’t believe everything you see on T.V. (and certainly not everything you read on the Internet). These “new” fasting diets that everyone is talking about –The Fast Diet, the 5:2 Diet, and seemingly endless variations of alternate-day or intermittent fasting “IF” diets – aren’t really “new” at all! They’re built on research that has been around for decades … research that helped launch the Hollywood Miracle Diet® more than 16 years ago!
All of these other diets are cashing in on what we already knew!
