Cleansing Diet for Weight Loss

Excess weight can be caused by a number of reasons from slow metabolism to sluggish thyroid. A cleansing diet for weight loss will assist your body’s natural cleansing processes to rid your body of excess waste.

Our small intestine has what is called an intestinal mucosa, which is basically a mucus lining or membrane whose purpose is digestion and assimilation of nutrients. When we eat junk foods, processed foods, overeat or eat while stressed, our bodies’ defense is to excrete excess mucus to stop the absorption of the toxins into the bloodstream.

If this happens a couple times a month, our body will simply digest this excess and eliminate it. Unfortunately, because of our fast-paced lifestyles, many of us eat like this every day. This keeps the body on defense, excreting excess mucus and leaving no time for digesting and eliminating the excess.

This can lead to a buildup of the mucus lining, which eventually turns to a mucosal plaque. Many experts in the health field say the average person has approximately 10 pounds of this buildup, which may inhibit metabolism. This buildup can also cause your system to become sluggish over the years. Could this be why we say our metabolism slows, as we get older?

Certain chemical toxins found in our environment can inhibit the function of organs such as the liver or the thyroid. This can result in weight gain or at least difficulty in losing excess weight.

For example, according to the Environmental Protection Agency, perchlorate, a chemical compound used in rocket fuel, is frequently being found in our drinking water supplies. (Go to EPA) This chemical is known to build up on the thyroid and may cause it to become sluggish. Some of this contaminated water can be used to process foods. In addition, there are many other known toxins such as food additives, preservatives and so on.

A cleansing diet for weight loss should therefore start with the elimination of all junk foods, processed foods, and fried foods. Also exclude for now: products that contain white flour, white sugar, all sodas, milk products (except a little butter) and canned foods.

For the next four weeks, eat mostly whole, fresh organic fruits, vegetables, omega-3 eggs, fresh veggie and/or fruit juices, whole, unprocessed grains (quinoa, buckwheat, oatmeal, barley, wild or brown rice), sprouts, organic beans, herbal teas and plenty of fresh drinking water.

Include a fiber supplement and a green superfood in your cleansing diet for weight loss. This will help break down buildup that slows your system, and will also help to absorb and eliminate toxins that buildup on various organs such as the thyroid and liver.

The bottom line; eat lightly to allow your body to cleanse itself. Many people find their cravings for junk foods become less after a colon cleanse. Others find that after a colon cleanse they don’t want to go back to their old habits because they feel so good. The internet is filled with testimonials of people gaining more energy, losing more weight and feeling more healthy after a cleanse.

By choosing a cleansing diet for weight loss, you too can gain these benefits. The weight loss detox may help where diets have failed; it's a new solution for a new era.
