Can Detoxing Help Me Lose Weight?

Do you experience any of these symptoms for prolonged periods of time?

  • No energy even after a good sleep
  • Poor digestion and bloating
  • Acne
  • Irritability
  • Brain fog (trouble thinking)
  • Headaches
  • Anxiety
  • Weight gain
  • White or yellow coated tongue
  • Bad breath
  • Moodiness

You could need a detox.  Our bodies are bombarded by toxins in our environment and food.  So how does detoxing help me with weight loss?  One of the jobs of the fat cell is to hold and sequester toxins keeping them from the vital organs.  When we detox, we release the toxins from the cells thus releasing the fat with it.  It is important that you drink a lot of water during detox to flush out the toxins and fat.  I will often put people on a detox program when they want to lose weight to kick start the release of fat.

So how does one detox?  There are so many detox programs (kits) available today at nutrition house.  You can start by doing a liver detox first, then a full body detox.  Some kits are for one week, some for 2 weeks and some for 30 days.  Some of them are really easy to follow you simply take the products as directed on the product.  I always suggest that you don’t eat red meat or pork during the detox to give the digestive system a break.  Proteins such as fish and chicken are far easier to digest.  I also suggest that you don’t eat any wheat or gluten or dairy during the detox phase.  This will not only help you lose weight quicker but you will feel so much more energy after 48-72 hours.

After the detox phase, stick to the keto diet as instructed in my blog.  You should have lost some weight during the detox which will keep you motivated to continue with your low carb diet.  Visit your local nutrition house store and ask the sales expert to guide you to the right detox for you.  Good luck!

    1. Hi Laina. Thanks for your comment. If you have never done a detox before Renew Life has one called First Cleanse. It is a 2 week program and very mild and gentle. After that you can do their Cleanse Smart which is a 30 day detox. I leave them at my bed side and in the morning upon waking I take 2 of the #1 product and then when I go to bed I take 2 of the #2 pills (there are 2 bottles in the kit). This is as easy as it gets. Besides what I mentioned regarding food while on a detox, this program does not have many dietary restrictions. If you want to be more strict there is a detox called Wild Rose Detox Kit. This detox eliminates all wheat, gluten, dairy and other known allergens. It is a 12 day program and it is pretty challenging and strict. Some people like that. On a daily basis, I personally take Himalaya Liver Care. This is to keep up with the daily toxins you are exposed to, or if you indulge in alcoholic drinks (I really like red wine). The scientific studies on this particular product are completely amazing! It is very important to drink a lot of water while doing a detox. I hope this helps and please let me know if you need further information.
