JUNETOX (Detox month)
So I bet you're looking down at your scale...and asking yourself.. "wtf?!" Where did the last 6 months go? I'm with you! But this is not when to get discouraged. June is mid-way through the year.. you still can hop back in the game!
Sometimes, its difficult for us to lose weight because we just jump into a weight loss program and our body goes into shock! It's difficult for us to get use to our new eating regimen and we slip up. But this month.. I am doing a detox! Everyone can go at their own speed until they feel they are ready to go to the next level. Each level should be no longer than 7 days. If you're capable of doing two phases at once you may.
Here it goes!
Phase 1: WATER ONLY (this is a great way and natural way for the body to detox. It flushes out your system and helps clean the livers and kidneys. water makes your skin clear, fights belly bloat, and speeds up metabolism.)
Phase 2: ALCOHOL, COFFEE, SMOKING, DRUGS (During this time, you want to make sure you aren't putting anything into your body that can manipulate the detox process.)
Phase 3: FAST FOODS (No Mcdonalds, no dunkin donuts, nothing that has a drive through. Nothing that is flat out a cheap restaurant. Avoid all restaurants IF possible. If you must eat at a restaurant.. choose an item from the health conscious menu
Phase 4: ALL SUGAR, REFINED, PROCESSED FOODS (No cereal, no bread, no pasta, nothing with more than 5 ingredients in it. No candy)
Phase 5: DAIRY & MEAT (Opt for almond milk if you must have milk. stay away from cheese and yogurt. Eggs aren't considered really dairy so its fine. If you must have meat, choose lean proteins.
This is where it gets good :-) If you want to take it a step further...
Phase 6: CARBS (no brown rice, potatoes, yams.)
Phase 7: JUICE FAST!
The ultimate goal here is to ease your body for the juice fast. I am aiming to juice on Sunday 6/16/17 - Sunday 2/23/13. So far, I am done with Phase 1. I'm moving on to phase 2 and 3 simultaneously.
