The phase weight loss detox has assumed greater importance in the weight loss and body detox circles in recent years. It is basically a combination of a weight loss program and a body detox program. We all know that weight loss will occur when calorie intake is lowered. This actually occurs when someone is going through a body detox program to cleanse his body of the toxic materials and pollutants that has been absorbed by the body through breathing and food intake. The two processes seem to achieve a 'one stone kill two bird' effect in terms of initiating weight loss and detoxifying the body at the same time. How true and effective is this weight loss detox phenomenon? In fact, there has been more and more evidence suggesting that this duel process can be very effective.
When unhealthy habits of eating, drinking and living starts to become predominant in our lives, our body becomes more and more burdened by our excesses and ineffective. This is very true when we look at the metabolic processes that are inherent in a naturally developed state of being. Think back to some of the ancient historically based films that you have come across. Do you notice that in ancient Roman, Greek or Chinese times, there are few obese characters in the movie plots? That is because in ancient times, foods are more natural. Very little artificial processing took place. Also, ancient people do not have to face issues like global warming and pollution of the environment. In our times, processed foods and chemically enhanced food products are all over the place. The polluted environment also means that we are breathing in more toxic air. This has had its effect on our body shape. It is no wonder that obesity has become a modern problem. As more toxic substances are absorbed by the body, our body metabolism becomes more hindered by these toxins, which in turns has its effect on fat metabolism. This is where reducing weight detox programs can come in to redress the imbalance here.
The weight loss detox actually starts with a diet detox. A diet detox is basically reducing or cutting off all unnatural food products and replacing these with more natural food products. If processed-meat like sausages and hamburger patties is predominant in ones' diet, diet detox simply means replacing this processed-meat by more natural meat like fresh steaks and fish fillet. This applies to not just meat but also other food types like carbohydrates, vegetables and minerals. Sometimes detox supplements are also integrated in the diet to enhance the effects. As our diet becomes healthier, fewer toxins will be added to our body system. At the same time, it will allow the body systems to get rid of more existing toxins in the body, thus reducing the burdens placed on metabolism. This will have longer term implication on our weight. This form of program through body detox and diet detox also stimulates the production of digestive enzymes that are important in helping weight loss. This extra secretion of digestive enzymes allows foods to be broken down more effectively, thus allowing for fuller absorption of nutrients that will help in maintain optimal body shape. As the body gets used to weight loss detox, it will initially exhibit some signs of adaptations. But such detox side effects need not be of great concern.
Some of these detox side effects includes weight loss, fatigue and headaches. Weight reduction is an obvious side effect when we go on a weight loss detox program. The mechanism of weight reduction from this process has been discussed as above. We now know that it is advantageous to detox as it aids weight loss. Fatigue comes about because a body detox and diet detox program generally encompass a reduction in carbohydrate intake. This will reduce sugar levels within the body in the short run, thus causing some form of fatigue. However, as the body adapts and become more efficient this will disappear. Remember we mentioned that the body becomes more efficient in a weight loss detox program? This efficiency is translated into better food break down thus releasing more energy for daily purposes. Headaches are a result of the body coming to terms with a dramatic reduction in body toxins. It is actually a good thing. With time, the body will adjust and the mind will feel more refresh free of toxins.
