Watch Your Coffee Intake

There are people who would suggest that you cut it out of your diet completely. You won’t hear  that here. However, if you can limit your intake to one or two cups a day you will be better off.

Remember that what goes up must come down, and down makes for a long work day.

A couple of quick suggestions: consider green tea as a possible compliment after your first cup or two. Also, for each cup of coffee you have drink a bottle of water. In fact, just drink more water. Don’t do it for a day but rather each day.

Why You Need A Diet That Detoxifies Your Body

Losing weight doesn’t necessarily correlate to being healthy. Cutting down on eating may pose negative impacts to your health. With all of the weight loss routines, don’t even bother.

There are negative ways of losing weight. Too much dieting may result in having gall stones and malnutrition. Some researches were conducted to study the impact of dieting on the gall bladder. With instant weight loss, the gall bladder might experience producing bile. This increases the risk of developing gall stones.

Some dieting methods do not consider proper nutrition. Improper nutrition may dull down the immune system.This is why we need to learn how to lose weight without severely impacting our health. There are proper ways of dieting without eliminating necessary food groups. To maintain our health, we have to maintain the recommended dietary allowance for proteins, fibers and vitamins.

Our bodies though still need fat in order to keep warm. The best way to lose weight therefore is to do it in a slow and steady pace. Instant weight loss is never healthy. Intensive dieting never works in the long run because the weight you lose by abstaining from food triggers chemical signals that tell your body to store food when ever you eat any, so, as soon as you are back to a regular diet, you start gaining weight.

Other than proper dieting, it is also important to go through detoxification. Everyday, we face off against toxins. Toxins can be found on germs as well as the food that we eat. Some of these toxins are a result of metabolism and some are extrinsic, they come from the environment like the air you breathe, the fast foods.

Detoxification can be done in several different ways. There are 3 day detox programs, master cleanse programs and water therapy programs. Detoxification means eating high fiber diets that are rich in minerals that can flush out toxins. Detox programs usually include juicing fruits.

If you are serious about your diet, go on a master cleanse detox program. It’s also called a juice fast wherein the diet relies on freshly squeezed fruits. Fresh fruit juice is healthy because it provides essential vitamins, minerals and glucose without any fats.

Aside from lowering down harmful toxins, Detox also lowers down cholesterol. With detoxifying foods, fat elimination also occurs. If you want to eat and burn fat at the same time, try oats, lentils and citrus fruits. This is a high fiber low calorie diet.

Vitamin C is used to metabolize fat, insoluble fibers reduce fat profile, and dietary fibers lower bad cholesterol. As the fats in the body are burned, slowly, we start losing weight. We have to remember, when it comes to our bodies, we cannot rush things.
