Healthy Detox Diets–LifeTime Fitness Article

11 Day Detox Diet From Experience Life Magazine

As a chiropractor, I am frequently asked about fad diets, my dietary preferences and supplements. This field is changing constantly and I feel that to be an expert in nutrition, it has to be a full time job. None the less, I’d like to share an article today about an 11 day detox program that I recently tried.

The article I read was in Experience Life Magazine, put out by Life Time Fitness that gave me a very clear and concise game plan to follow.

For the last ten years, I have done a detox plan at least once a year. It seems that sometimes no matter how hard I try, once off track with my diet, I can’t get back on. I end up feeling bloated, gaining a couple pounds and have irresistible cravings. Salt, sugar, fat, salt…sugar…fat…repeat. You get the idea! This is when I know that I need to do a detox diet. Typically, I start off by eliminating either sugar or alcohol since my sugar cravings are the worst. I then eliminate all bread, white rice, pasta, all products made from white flour and simple carbs of any kind. After about a week of this, I do a one day juice fast and then typically eat with a lot more intention for awhile until my diet all goes to hell again.

What was different about this detox, is that I felt so good when I was on it, weeks later I still am sticking to parts of the program. Though I have given many workshops on nutrition, I am the quintessential “do as I say, not as I do” when it comes to nutrition. I knew logically why you should eat small meals, but didn’t really understand how that was possible. After a couple weeks on this detox plan, I felt great by constantly and consistently fueling myself with small meals throughout the day. I would highly recommend taking a look at this article and trying it yourself.
