Having trouble losing weight? This type of body cleanse may help. A weight loss detox is not the same as a traditional weight loss diet. Traditional diets used to help a person lose weight often include processed foods, frozen foods (which are highly processed), foods that contain hidden chemicals and sugars but labeled as 'light' or 'natural'. Often the goal is to eat less calories than burned and gaining enough "nutrition" without a focus on the actual source of the nutrition.
A detox, also known as a body cleanse or weight loss cleanse, utilizes foods and/or supplements that are known to help your body naturally lose weight. The foods and supplements are often considered cleaner since the use of additives, fake nutrients or even pesticides are avoided. Removing this type of burden from your internal organs along with healthy food supplements for extra nutrition may help your body shed weight more easily and naturally.
A weight loss detox can help your body remove excess fat, which is waste that your body does not need. Toxins like pesticides and other chemicals can make losing weight difficult.
Some facts about excess weight:
Often we don't realize our foods contain substances that may cause us to gain weight easier or even hinder weight loss efforts. Some of these culprits are found in fast food, junk food and many other processed foods and they often do not leave "naturally." Instead, as our body becomes overburdened and cannot keep up, these environmental toxins get stored in fat cells and fatty tissue, making it more difficult to get rid of.
These are only a couple of the chemicals that are invading our bodies. As you can see not only are they harmful, but they are known to cause hormonal dysfunction, damage the liver and inhibit thyroid function.
Improper hormonal function, or hormonal imbalances, make it easier for your body to gain weight, accumulate excess fat and not allow you to lose it – no matter how hard you try.
A sluggish and over-burdened liver cannot efficiently burn fat. You have the power to help restore your liver back to its fat-burning capabilities. Here are some tips to help you put together a body cleanse geared for a weight loss detox.
Don't fall into the trap that a weight loss detox is a quick jump start or an easy fix. It takes effort as with any lifestyle change, however when done right, the rewards will be worth it.

This book though, is about holistic cleansing of the colon and other systems of the body. It gives the science behind on why eating so much junk can harm your body, and the solutions to correct your eating habits. I found this very informative and easy to read and understand. If you are looking for a new reason to change, read this. by E***Amazon Verified Review
