There are many factors that contribute to weight gain, and one factor that is most overlooked by traditional diets is excess toxins in the body. More simply put, people often have difficulty losing weight because their bodies are full of toxins. The more toxins you take in or get exposed to every day, the more toxins you store as fat cells in the body. Toxins stored in fat cells are difficult to get rid of through dieting alone. You must first detoxify the body. When the body is overloaded with toxins, the body transfers its energy away from burning calories and uses that energy to work harder to detoxify the body. In other words, the body does not have the energy to burn calories. However, when the body is efficiently detoxifying and getting rid of toxins, the energy can be used to burn fat. In my new book Lose Weight Without Dieting or Working Out! I provide a 3-part system that starts with detoxification as the first step in helping you shed pounds.
Simply put, traditional diets so often don’t work because they don’t address the toxic waste in the body. Counting calories does not detoxify and cleanse the body. Weight loss won’t be permanent if your body’s systems are sluggish or impacted with waste matter or toxins. You must first rid your body of toxins if you want to get rid of excess fat in the body.
I believe the most effective weight-loss programs should focus on both fat loss and detoxification. Detoxification, which is the process of removing toxins from the body, is critical to losing fat because many of the toxins the body holds onto are stored in fat cells. So, by getting rid of toxins, you get rid of the fat cells in your body.
