Think you’re safe? • Age continues after season ends • Weight accumulates (source of evil) • Imported food = bad nutrition/calorie ratio • Season of calorie dense foods begins • Activity goes indoors expenditure decreases • Sun goes away/nature says hibernate • DCA (direct to consumer advertising) says buy/try/fly • Side effects of bandaid meds/fast foods = more!
  4. 4. Detoxing • Fasting (religious roots) • Jump starts your enthusiasm to suffer through • Misery loves company (u ain’t alone) • Made to dovetail into a sustainable change (most diets end with same weight and more hunting post restriction) • Not necessary for change but hallmarks above

  6. 6. Post Detox Sensation • Get past the post carb crave (high fruc corn sy -from 15g to current 70-150g/d=22tsp sugar) • Bowels have less irritants/more fiber • Withdrawals are done (tobacco/aspartame/msg/refined sugar/caffeine/wheat) • Medicines may have less side effects • Organs can prob function easier (less dopamine/insulin/cortisol)

  14. 14. Plan ahead • Its not the detox event that matters; • It’s the sustainable lifestyle you maintain that impacts your future.

Steps • Ask the herbalist/vitamin expert about side effects to expect with the detox-in-a-box • Ask your nutritionist about nutrient dense foods that you can take advantage of and which MRE’s you should plan on • Ask you exercise physiologist/trainer/yoga or tai chi instructor how much to cut down while on detox (an then how to ramp up while on the 12 Weeks after detox) • Stay in touch with your counselor/spiritual guide/pastor/psychologist while finishing the detox and initiating the 12 Weeks to Change (…yes you will be very termpermental/emotional/hungry/sleepy/achey!!!)
