Blast through that weight plateau
If you’ve ever been on a weight-loss program you are familiar with that unfortunate few weeks of a weight plateau. There are many reasons why people cannot bust through this plateau. Unfortunately, some people even lose momentum and stop trying altogether.
The most important thing to consider when starting a weight-loss program is detoxification. Now I’m not talking about a juice fast or fruit and vegetable cleanse rather something that concerns your liver and quenching fat soluble toxins into water soluble toxins to be excreted. Over time toxins enter the body through various ways. To name a few ways toxins get in our system- pesticides on our food, even stress creates toxins, harsh chemical laden cleaners and products, the air we breathe and the water we drink. Our cells start to lose their function with this toxic overload and cannot do the things we need to do efficiently such as excrete toxins and absorb nutrients. This build up over time slows down our cellular function and metabolism overall.

A few other tips to bust through weight plateaus include the following:
Make sure you are eating adequate amounts of protein. Your body will end up stealing from muscle stores to utilize energy if intake is not adequate. Hence slowing down metabolism.
Choose organic versions of fruits and vegetables. At least make sure you are getting the dirty dozen organic! Pesticides and herbicides have known to get into our cells and slow down our systems.
Drink enough water! We need at least half of our body weight in ounces every single day. If you sweat or work outside or live in a tropical environment you may need two more cups in addition. Dehydration causes the body to slow down and go into preservation and conservation mode.
These few tips will help boost your metabolism and increase your propensity to bust through that weight loss plateau! First and foremost a medically based detoxification program will do wonders for your body and your weight long term. Contact me if you are interested!
