Cellulite detox

Intense Fat and Sugar Cleanse

Is your body showing signs that it needs a fat and sugar cleanse?

• Is cellulite collecting on your hips, thighs or tummy? Cellulite is a mixture of fat, water and wastes trapped beneath the skin.
• Are your upper arms slightly flabby? Is your waistline, wrists and ankles noticeably thicker?  
• Does your face look jowl-y or puffy?
If your diet problem is eating too much fat and sugars, try my light detox from fats and sugars for 1 – 3 days. It makes you feel terrific and it’s so easy. Sugary foods and highly processed foods like fast foods are so devoid of digestive enzymes that they collect as excess fat. If you are congested, your body tries to dump its metabolic wastes to get them out of the way. One of the places that receives metabolic wastes is excess fat. 

Start the night before with a green leafy salad to sweep your intestines. Dry brush your skin all over for five minutes before you go to bed to open your pores for the night’s cleansing eliminations. 
Upon rising: have a cup of green tea to cut through and eliminate fatty wastes. For maximum results, add drops of ginseng extract to control sugar cravings, or licorice extract for sugar stabilizing.
Breakfast: have a Fat Melt Down Juice: juice 2 apples, 2 pears, 1 slice of fresh ginger to help reduce fat from places where it is stored in cellulite. The ginger stimulates better blood circulation.
Mid-morning: a green superfood drink once a day helps cleanse your body of fatty build-up.
Lunch: enjoy a mixed vegetable juice, like Knudsen’s Very Veggie. Regular V-8 juice works fine. 
Mid-afternoon: Take a glass of papaya-pineapple juice, or a cup of green tea to enhance enzyme production. Enzymes are a dieter’s best friend!     
Dinner: Have miso soup with snipped sea greens. Sea veggies add minerals and improve sluggish metabolism.  Add spices like cayenne, mustard and ginger to speed up fat burning. 
Before bed: have a cup of apple juice, licorice or peppermint tea to restore normal body pH.

Focus on reducing fats and sugars in your diet. Add more fiber to get rid of excess sugar, especially from whole grains, legumes like peas, and vegetables. High fiber foods improve glucose metabolism, help promote weight loss and reduce cravings for sugar. 
Take a 15 minute dry sauna several days a week for a month. Raising your body temperature with dry heat really helps balance sugar levels. When I worked at a European spa, we used this technique for weight loss and blood sugar problems with great results!
Expert dieters drink 8 glasses of water a day. Water naturally suppresses appetite and helps maintain a high metabolic rate. In fact, water is the most important catalyst for increased fat burning. It enhances the liver’s ability to detox and metabolize so it can process more fats. Don’t worry about fluid retention; high water intake actually decreases bloating, because it flushes out sodium and toxins. 

Bodywork techniques really enhance the results of your fat/cellulite detox

Choose 2-3 of the following techniques: 10-minute daily cellulite exercises work: They support a slim subcutaneous fat layer, increase circulation, maintain underlying tissue integrity. Do them all each day for 10 minutes. 1. Standing arm swings 50 count both arms. 2. 100 tummy sucks. 3. 100 torso twists. 4. Wall pushups with each arm and both arms. 5. Standing leg circles, 50 each leg. 6. Weight lifting that focuses on the lower body helps develop the muscles in the hips and thighs. 7. Deep breathing moves out lymph congestion that shows as cellulite (one reason why yoga and pilates are so effective).

Dry brushing: Fatty wastes can get trapped beneath the skin’s surface easily (especially in women) when the liver or lymphatic systems are sluggish. Use a natural bristle brush—brush vigorously in a rotary motion and massage every part of your body in this order: feet and legs, hands and arms, back and abdomen, chest and neck. Five to fifteen minutes is the average time.

Rub-on cellulite-fighting essential oils: Antioxidant oils rosemary and thyme. Peppermint oil increases metabolism. Juniper stimulates circulation. Or, try Cellulite gel (with a hint of cayenne for an extra flushing boost).

Massage: Have a massage therapy treatment at the beginning and end of your cleanse to move excess fluid wastes and unattached fats into elimination systems, and to stimulate skin circulation. You can also do light massage work on your cellulitic areas yourself with good results.

Bathe away toxins: Try a Hot Seaweed Bath; or a sea salt bath: add 1 cup Dead Sea salts, 1 cup Epsom salts, ½ cup regular sea salt and ¼ baking soda to a tub; swish in 3 drops lavender oil, 2 geranium drops  oil, 2 drops sandalwood oil and 1 drop neroli oil.

Weight loss after 40 through healthy detoxification!

Even though Americans are still looking for the “miracle magic bullet” for slimness, everyone is slowly realizing that a good diet has to be front and center for health and body tone. Long term weight control is always the result of a sound nutritious eating plan and regular exercise, rather than a try at the latest fad diet. One of the great advantages of achieving weight loss through a cleansing program is the extra energy you feel from the fresh juices, superfoods, herb teas and healing broths. Most weight loss diets have little nutrition to offer so they leave you feeling tired and lifeless. In the end, even if you lose weight, your body feels so deprived that it starts ravenous cravings for foods that put the weight right back on.  A cleanse is one of the best ways to jump start a new health program. Unhealthy fats, like saturated fats in meats and dairy foods, trans-fats like those in many dairy foods, hydrogenated or partially hydrogenated oils like those in margarine, shortening and many snack foods, and oxidized fats, like those in all fried foods, collect into excess body fat. Sugary foods and highly processed foods (like fast foods) are so devoid of digestive enzymes that they end up collecting as excess fat, too. Further, if you are congested, your body tries to dump its metabolic wastes to get them out of the way — one of the places that receives metabolic wastes is excess fat.

A 2-3 week Detox Diet for Weight Loss

Making a healing diet change and losing excess weight is one of the best things you can do for your health. The rewards are high - a longer, healthier life - and control of your life.

On rising: Squeeze 2 lemons in a glass of water, and drink for a quick liver flush.

Breakfast: Have a poached or baked egg with bran muffins or whole grain toast with ghee or a healthy jam; or have low fat yogurt and some whole grain cereal.; or Try a healthy meal replacement shake.

Mid-morning: Have a green veggie drink, or natural V-8 juice or peppermint tea; or a cup of miso soup with sea greens snipped on top; or crunchy raw veggies with yogurt cheese dip.

Lunch: Have fresh leafy green salad with a lemon/oil or yogurt dressing with baked tofu; or miso soup, with steamed veggies and a light sauce.

Mid-afternoon: Have a bottle of mineral water, or a cup of peppermint tea, or apple or cranberry juice; or have a superfood drink like Energy Green.

Dinner: Have a stir-fry with lots of greens, onions, mushrooms, with clear soup and brown rice; or baked/broiled fish or seafood with some steamed veggies, brown rice or millet.

Evening snack: Have some un-buttered spicy popcorn. It’s good for you and its airiness will fill you up and keep you from wanting heavier or “habit” foods.

Bodywork techniques accelerate and round out your cleanse

Daily exercise releases fat from cells. A brisk walk burns calories and cuts cravings. An outdoor walk in winter raises low serotonin levels. Exercise early in the day raises metabolism as much as 25%! Exercising before breakfast helps the body dip into its fat stores for quick energy and curbs the munchies all day. Even if eating habits just slightly change, you can still lose weight with a brisk hour’s walk or 15 minutes of aerobic exercise.

To Life-long health,
