I unjunked my body!

Section: Nutrition - Category: Diet

Do you need a detox?
  • Are you often tired ?
  • Do you get headaches frequently ?
  • Do you have hard time losing weight ?
  • Are you bloated or retaining water ?
  • Mental cloudiness ?
  • Is you skin getting bad ?
If you answered “Yes” to more than three questions above there is a good chance your system experience a toxic overload.

Detoxing once or twice a year is often recommended as a solution.

Every day our bodies are exposed to toxins from the water we drink, the air we breathe and especially from the processed foods we eat. If our bodies get overwhelmed with toxins, our liver suffers and we start seeing the effect on our health: our skin is affected, we get tired, we retain water, get headaches, digestion problems, bad breath and find it especially hard to loose weight.

Researches have now discovered the biological cause of those stubborn pounds: toxic particles bind water in the body’s soft tissue and inhibit your metabolism from burning fat efficiently.

It definitely makes sense that we get tired and bloated from too many toxins from our foods and from our environment, but gaining weight and retaining water are not as obvious. Well, it is now scientifically proven that detoxifying our bodies helps to lose weight too.

Less weight, a brighter cleaner skin, means a more beautiful and healthier person.

Conclusion: to loose weight it may be necessary to cleanse your body first: Effective detox diet

Dealing with type 2 diabetes

Section: Nutrition - Category: Diet

It is quite obvious that diet is very important in managing type 2 diabetes or the risk of developing this dreaded illness. Most people think that reducing only the sugar in their diet is enough. What is not known is the stealth adverse effect of carbohydrates on circulating blood sugar.

Carbohydrates are not all created equal. Some of them rise more than others the amount of circulating blood sugar. The body response is to create insulin in the pancreas. If this happens too often, an insulin resistance may develop: the pancreas produces more insulin than the body needs. This is called diabetes type 2 and it is not good for you. It may bring along blindness, heart attacks, strokes, kidney damage, inflammation and colon and prostate cancer.

Mind quotes

There are as many nights as days, and the one is just as long as the other in the year's course. Even a happy life cannot be without a measure of darkness, and the word 'happy' would lose its meaning if it were not balanced by sadness.

Carl Jung
