If you are setting up some new health and weight loss goals for 2018- you may want to begin by treating the WHOLE you from the inside out. The WHOLESTIC Method Transformation program starts with a five day detox and reset challenge to help rest the digestive system, clean your liver, eliminate toxins and reduce stressors. We need to treat our body just as we would for our cars! We drive our cars everyday and create a lot of stress and toxic build up on the inside. Just as you need to check under the hood of your car – getting an oil change and tune up a few times a year is just as essential for your own body.
We put our body through so much stress every day including toxins in our environment, the food we eat, the beverages we consume and the products we put on our body daily. Sometimes you don’t even realize that you are feeling run down, tired, bloated, inflammed, congested and mentally slow. You may just need a reset and clean out your filter- your liver while resting your digestive system then work on cleaning up your diet with an elimination plan while consuming foods/nutrients and supplements that heal your gut.
You may be struggling with deficiencies as in low:
- Vagal Tone
- Digestive process
- Gut health
- Chronic stressors
In The WHOLESTIC Method Transformation program, we are going to address all of these issues or rather “areas of opportunities” with our Phase One 5-day DETOX and RESET Challenge then even more focus on healing the gut in our Phase Two 21-day Sugar DETOX and RESET Challenge.
The 21-day food plan will focus on more of a reset plan to switch you from a sugar burner to a fat burner -as we are designed to be doing throughout the day. The food plan will be lower carbohydrates with the focus on eating lots of colorful, organic low-glycemic vegetables paired with clean sources protein and high healthy fat intake to feel full, satiated and mentally strong. The result in metabolizing fat for fuel in the liver are by-products called KETONES. This time of year, we are hearing a lot about KETOSIS and KETO-ADAPTED because the lower carbohydrate, moderate protein and higher healthy fat food plan works for most people. In Phase Three of The WHOLESTIC Method transformation program, we switch to the “80/20” plan with is also known as “cyclical” keto and more realistic long term for most people to follow while keeping your body burning fat for its main fuel source, optimizing health from the inside out resulting in a healthy gut and improving digestion. Not only will you be burning more fat and getting lean – but you will also feel more focused, improved concentration and better memory.
Don’t be scared of a few days of fasting- drinking mostly bone broth, liver detox tea and fresh green vegetable drinks! It is easier than you think- and often what we don’t like or what we avoid is what we need to do the most to grow and change for the better!
Try it out and find out for yourself! Everyone is different and we all have different symptoms that may be addressed in the program- or a more individualized Nutritional Therapy program is strongly recommended.
Here is an explaination on KETOSIS from Dr. Josh Axe (another top leader/influencer in the industry behind keto programs and their benefits!): “Following a ketogenic diet can put the body into a state of “ketosis…
Here’s what it all means: When the body has the ability to burn fat as fuel, the liver naturally creates fats called ketones. Ketones can burn fat more efficiently than carbs can, which, in turn, creates a balanced environment for maintaining a healthy weight and overall health. Long story short, eating fewer carbs, more healthy fats and moderate protein fuels the body to achieve ketosis, in which most of the body’s energy comes from ketone bodies in the blood, rather than from glucose. This is in contrast to a glycolytic state, where blood glucose (sugar) provides most of the body’s fuel (or energy). Once ketone levels in the blood rise to a certain point, then the person has officially entered into a state of ketosis. While everyone is different, generally, people usually enter into ketosis after 3-to- 4 days of following a low-carbohydrate, high-fat diet that forces the need for an alternative energy source: body fat! Typically, when following a ketogenic diet, the body burns fat for energy rather than carbohydrates. In the process, a person can enter the fat-burning zone rapidly, even when consuming lots of fat and adequate calories through the diet.
