Detoxification Occurs In Our Bodies Daily 

Our internal organs, the colon, liver and intestines, help our bodies eliminate toxic and harmful matter from our bloodstreams and tissues. Often, our systems become overloaded with waste. 
The very air we breathe, and all of its pollutants, build up in our bodies. 
Today’s over processed foods and environmental pollutants can easily overwhelm our delicate systems and cause toxic matter to build up in our bodies. 

Detox Diets Are Designed To Help Your Body Rid Itself Of The Toxic Matter Buildup And Lose Weight

 If you feel sluggish, have frequent colds, digestive problems or just aren’t feeling your best, you may have a toxicity issue. A detox diet will help you clean the harmful matter from your body and lose weight.  

A Detox Diet Will Help Your Body By Increasing Stamina And Energy, Making The Digestive Process Easier

 It will help in increasing mental clarity and decreasing allergies. Most detox diets don’t involve weird or unhealthy foods, simply fresh and whole foods like fruits and vegetables. Eat plenty of fresh fruit, except grapefruit. Enzymes in grapefruit interfere with the proper functioning of enzymes in the liver, so they should not be used during detox diets. 
Grapefruits should not be eaten during detox programs, but they are great for anytime else.  

Fresh Vegetables Are Also Great On The Detox Diet 

The best vegetables for detoxing are broccoli, garlic, artichokes, beets, cauliflower and red and green vegetables. Avoid corn products, as corn often contains allergens. Rice is also acceptable on a detox diet, and beans, nuts and seeds are great as well. 

Drink Plenty Of Water 

You need about 6 to 8 glasses a day to aid the body in flushing out toxins. A hydrated body helps your body organs to function in an optimal fashion. Drink plenty of crystalline, pure water… as pure as you can get it. 

A Simple Detox Diet Plan

A simple detox diet plan may just involve staying off meat for a couple of days. For a more detailed plan, consult a professional on what to eat for each meal during the detox period. Stay away from meats during your detox program.  

Navigating The Paleo Diet 

Whether we like it or not, the health of our society is bad and getting worse.   
As technology continues to develop, convenience does as well and ordering food is literally as simple as the clicking of a button. Long gone are the days of having to find your own food, let alone having to drive to a restaurant to get dinner.  Cooking dinner looks less and less appealing when compared to the food conveniences and choices amongst diners, catering services, fast food and takeout.According to the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics, diabetes is now the seventh leading cause of death, just in the United States alone.  

  Type 2 diabetes has been on the rise due to poor lifestyle choices, such as too much unhealthy food and not enough exercise. “Globesity,” a term coined by the World Health Organization to describe the worldwide obesity epidemic, is another problem as well. These numbers continue to rise as do the associated health problems and diseases.   

As governments and local communities start to feel the impact of obesity, diabetes, hypertension, etc. due to poor lifestyle choices, awareness is increasing.   
Cheap, processed foods are so readily available and overwhelm the shelves in supermarkets. Toss desk-jobs, long drives or commutes and electronics into the mix, and we do a lot of sitting around and very little to burn off that processed food.   

Americans spent about twenty-five percent of their net income on food ninety-years ago, according to a study done by RAND on why Americans are so fat. In the present day, we spend less than ten-percent of that income on food. But we’re certainly not eating less- we’re eating more, unhealthier, cheaper foods.But perhaps we are finally seeing a turning point. The last three quarters, McDonalds has seen a global decline of about 3.3% in sales, perhaps indicative of less consumption of fast food.  

With media covering the obesity epidemic and health and quality of life plummeting, some people are starting to see the light. Documentaries such as Fed Up are exposing food manufacturers concerns that lie only with profits and not health, and how added sugar is in over 80% of supermarket foods.   

We may be a long ways off from getting back to “the good old days” where dinner was made from whatever was in the garden and processed foods were nearly unheard of. But the best we can do is inform ourselves on why healthy choices are the best for long-term health and quality of life. 

Exercise Without Effort

 It is a fact of modern life that most people do not exercise enough. This , allied to a diet which is heavy on sugar and fat laden fast foods, has led to a tidal wave of overweight and obese people in most Western countries, a tidal wave that is becoming increasingly difficult to turn back. 

The problem is that, for most people, it is all too easy and convenient not to take exercise. If you need the basic everyday groceries – even if it is only a carton of milk or a loaf of bread – it is quicker and more convenient to hop in the car and drive to the store than walk. If you have to get to the third or fourth floor when you go to the office, it is easier (although not always quicker) to take the elevator as opposed to the stairs. Yet many people are willing to pay hundreds or even thousands of dollars every year to be a member of a gymnasium or a fashionable fitness club in order to stay in shape. 

That really does not make a great deal of sense, so this book is here to tell you that it does not have to be that way! I am going to show you how to keep your money in your pocket and exercise the natural way, in a way that you don’t even really notice. Mankind managed to survive for thousands of years before anyone ever came up with the idea of ‘working out at the gym’. Sure, the life expectancy of modern man has increased significantly over the past couple of hundred years, but I suspect that this has little to do with the proliferation of fancy fitness clubs and expensive gymnasia. 

The good news is that exercise can be taken naturally every day. With a little thought, it is not difficult to think of lots of opportunities for taking exercise without resorting to spending your hard earned cash on fitness club fees. Let us start by looking at why exercise is so important in modern life.
