Many people who are trying to lose weight, after a period of time and weight loss, experience a plateau. It seems nothing you do makes you lose more weight. You try dieting more and you try exercising more, but to no avail. There are only so many calories you can cut before you aren’t eating anything and that isn’t a viable option for weight loss, or life.
Maybe that current stop in weight loss has nothing to do with your eating plan? What if the problem lies in your colon? Obviously all your food passes through your colon, but if that is blocked the food ends up sticking to the walls. Your body hangs on to the weight. At the same time nutrients are not being absorbed by your body. This results in you being even hungrier and wanted to eat more food. Well, if you eat more food you will not only fail to lose weight you will gain some back. Not really what you want. This can be exacerbated by eating processed foods which make your colon slow to digest and your body slow to gain nutrients.
What is the answer? A colon cleanse. And there are products to take care of this. With the blockage gone after a colon cleanse, food no longer stick to the walls. Instead it is digested and passed out of your body. The nutrients from the food are absorbed by your body thus your body will not need to be hungry and demand more food. You won’t be eating more. Instead you need to eat less.
But just cleansing your colon is not enough. This must be done with other weight loss strategies. You already need to be eating properly and exercising before you choose to do a colon cleanse. Here are some tips to combine all these methods for weight loss.
In preparing for the cleanse, you must consume half your body weight in ounces of water. A cleanse will push more water out of your system so you need to compensate for that. If you are 200 pounds, you must drink 100 ounces of water before and during the cleanse.
Your colon uses probiotics to breakdown food. A colon cleanse will wash those away. It is vital for you to consume them after a cleanse to replenish what has been washed away.
Eating a healthy diet, especially leafy greens, is essential. A colon cleanse is not a miracle cure so there is no reason to stop eating healthy.
Being consistent and completing the cleanse will greatly increase the likelihood that the cleanse will be effective. A cleanse will make you go to the bathroom more, but don’t be put off by that. That is a crystal clear sign that the cleanse is working.
Now realize that if you do the above, you will lose weight, but that is no reason to splurge on your eating. Be prepared to resume your diet regimen after the cleanse.
Through cleansing your colon and sticking to a healthy diet and exercising, you will get over your weight loss plateau. You’ve come this far. No reason to stop now.
