You want to lose weight, but how? You’ve tried everything, dieting, starvation, exercise but it doesn’t seem to do anything. The problem is that sugar and flour are so prevalent in the foods that we eat and so addictive that they cause us not only to over eat but they spike insulin and inflammation within the body causing us to store belly fat. Losing weight is about putting the right types of food into your body so that it can rid the body of the bad stuff. This can be done by cleansing or detoxing to jumpstart your weight loss and reboot your metabolism. Don’t think of detox as deprivation, but as ridding your body of sugar and all the things that turn into sugar. The foods that you will eat will not only cleanse your body, but they will help to eliminate cravings, headaches, and keep you feeling fuller for longer. Whole foods provide the body with essential vitamins, minerals and nutrients to promote speedy digestion, clean out the GI tract and ultimately lose weight. Check out these foods to start your journey to weight loss.
