Cleansing for Weight Loss

Aug 17, 2007
According to the Center for Disease Control, an estimated 66 percent of U.S. adults are overweight. 32 percent are obese. A new study by researchers at RTI International and the Centers for Disease Control estimates that U.S. obesity-attributable medical expenditures reached $75 billion in 2003 and that taxpayers finance about half of these costs through Medicare and Medicaid. Some estimates claim that obesity contributes to over 300,000 deaths per year in the U.S. and has surpassed smoking as the #1 killer.

75 million people go on a diet every year. The weight loss industry rakes in over $109 million every day. Despite the incredible monetary gains of the weight loss industry, people are getting sicker and more overweight with over 60 diseases being related to obesity.

Why is this happening? Two Reasons:

Reason number one:
There are chemicals from food, preservatives, pesticides, fertilizers. We consume over 700 chemicals in our water. We deal with 700,000 tons of pollution in the air. We have chemicals from cosmetics and cleaning fluids. Animals are injected with hormones, steroids and antibiotics. These toxins we ingest every day are stored in the fat cells in your body.

Reason number two:
Most diets that promote rapid weight loss use harsh diuretics which rob the body of important nutrients and minerals (especially potassium, magnesium, calcium) which can dangerously upset your electrolyte balance - causing dehydration and often depression.
They also use harmful stimulants - like MaHuang, Ephedra or Caffeine which speed up your metabolism in an unhealthy way - increasing your blood pressure and heart rate. Diets for weight loss typically attempt to cause imbalances in carbohydrate, fat and protein rations. Perhaps for this reason alone, diets are not sustainable and dieters nearly always yo-yo their weight over time causing progressive increases in percentage of body fat. This composition change is a result of losing lean muscle mass during the diet phase and adding extra fat as the weight is put back on over time.

So the question is, how do you cleanse your body of the toxins and lose unwanted fat without robbing your body of muscle mass, calcium, and nutrients that are required to maintain optimal health?

First, realize that there is no miracle pill that will save you. Also realize that these fasting diets are only going to cause a yo-yo affect because you are robbing your body of nutrients. Exercise is extremely important, but it must be combined with the proper eating habits.

You need a plan. That plan must include the following:
1) A cleansing formula with superior-quality aloe, cleansing herbal teas, lipotropic nutrients, and ionic trace minerals that can help your body to naturally release harmful impurities that slow down your metabolism. Lose the toxins that are stored in the fat cells and you help your body shed the fat.
2) Meals that include a blend of organic whey protein, vitamins, active enzymes, and minerals that are low in calories and high in fiber. This will maximize your fat burning while safely reducing your caloric intake.

You must do this WITHOUT STIMULANTS. Stimulants are harmful and you don't want to create the yo-yo affect that will cause you to gain the weight right back.

Combining this with proper exercise will cause the weight to come off, and more importantly, stay off. This combination has not only helped people who are obese quickly lose an incredible amount of pounds quickly and safely, it has also helped with that very stubborn 5 to 10 pounds of fat that just won't go away.
