What is nutritional cleansing?




Nutritional cleansing is a healthy lifestyle system based on calorie-restrictive meals, in the form of shakes and healthy food choices,  followed by 2 cleanse days at least two times a month.  The combination of these components helps reset your digestive system and improve your health down to the cellular level.

People have been fasting as long as humans have been on this planet.  It is the ancient secret to health.  Recently the idea seems to be making a resurgence.  There are plenty of ways to fast, such as the cleansing.   It can lead to significant health benefits when done correctly: weight loss and removal of belly fat, lower the risk of Type 2 diabetes, increase energy, reduce stress and inflammation in the body among other things.  The most basic way to describe it is that fasting allows you body to burn body fat for fuel. By not providing calories from your meals the body must rely on the stored fat you have for energy.

So I know what you are saying, “starving yourself can’t possible be good for you.”.  First of all you aren’t starving yourself.  Starving yourself is involuntary, meaning you don’t have access to food.  Fasting is voluntary, you are choosing to withhold food for health or other reasons.

I refer to nutritional cleansing as a lifestyle because it is permanent and realistic way to eat for the rest of your life.  When you follow this lifestyle, you learn all about moderation.   Most days you follow the shake and healthy eating plan along with a few cleanse days a month.  But when you follow this plan it allows space for occasionally indulging in not so healthy options without compromising your health or the weight loss.

It most cases people look to nutritional cleansing for weight loss (See Testimonials) but the non-scale victories are actually even more important.  Nutritional cleansing provides the body with the nutrients it needs, removes toxins, increases energy, builds lean muscle and improves mental clarity.  It’s the best decision I’ve ever made for myself and I love having this blog so I can share my experiences and hopefully encourage others to join me in this healthy lifestyle.
