We are at the beginning of a new year, and with a new year many people often set resolutions. While these resolutions vary from person to person, losing weight seems to be a popular one year after year. It may seem that certain individuals have an easier time losing weight and keeping that weight off; however, for some, it can be a struggle. Have you ever felt that no matter what you eat or what exercises you do, you can’t can’t lose weight? Did you know that toxic build up in the body can sometimes prevent weight loss? Here’s why.
How Toxic Build Up in the Body Can Prevent Weight Loss
When a toxin enters the body it finds a place to settle. While there are a number of places for a toxin to go, it is not uncommon for a toxin to settle into fatty tissue found in the body. So how is it that toxins can prevent weight loss? Fatty tissue can be a common location for toxins due to the fact that it is one of the ‘safest’ places for the body to store them. Less damage is done in the fatty tissue verses the heart, the lungs, and so forth. However, when toxins are stored in fatty tissue, losing weight can become a stubborn task.
Detoxing the Body with Food
One of the most convenient ways to detox is through diet. This includes excluding some foods as well as adding others in.
Foods to Avoid: sugar, sweetened drinks, gluten, processed foods, refined foods, foods that may be a sensitivity
Best Foods for Detoxing the Body: grapefruit, berries, brussels sprouts, chia seeds, nuts, bone broth, asparagus, broccoli, kale, collard greens, artichokes, avocado, spinach
Other Things to Remember When Trying to Lose Weight
While we certainly need to remove toxins from our body, it is important to remember one needs to maintain a well-balanced diet, provide movement on a regular basis, get a restful night sleep (eight hours is ideal), and manage stress. For ideas, click here.
