Banish Bloat With These 7 Detox Tips

TOP 7 DETOX TIPS TO BANISH THE BLOAT

1. Get Fruity

So many folks think that detox juices have to be all veggies, and that fruit is banned.

This is not the case.

The natural sugars in fruit are completely different to the sugars you get in candy bars and cakes and will help lift your mood and energy levels.

Include 1 fruit serving per 2 vegetable servings.

2. The Darker the Better 

On the topic of fruit, the darker it is, the better it is for you.

This is due to the fact that dark-skinned fruits have better protection from the sun, and so keep their nutritional values more effectively. Think blackberries, blueberries, and elderberries.

Thick-skinned fruits such as mangos, limes, and pineapples work on the same principle too.

3. Look at the Liquid

You can use water in your detox smoothies, but why would you, when varying the liquid component adds flavor, texture and extra nutrition?

Almond milk is a real winner, as is coconut water, coconut milk, and even the juice from fresh fruits such as lemons and limes.

4. Go Green

As much as possible, aim to include something green in your drink.

When combined with other ingredients you won’t taste these at all. So get some spinach, kale, broccoli, or even lettuce and aloe vera leaves in there.

5. Make it Nice with Spice

One incredibly simple tip to make your smoothies so much tastier (yet few people know about) is to add a dash of spice to each one.

If you’ve not tried ginger, cinnamon, or even a dash of natural sea salt with your concoctions, you’re seriously missing out. A little of these goes a long way.

6. Neat n’ Sweet

A big problem many people face when making their own detox drinks at home is working out how to make them sweet without adding a ton of syrup, sugar or artificial sweeteners.

Well, that problem can be solved by raiding nature’s store cupboard.

Raw honey and agave nectar are godsends and don’t forget that many sweeter fruits, like bananas, apples, papaya and apples pack more than enough sweet punch on their own.

7. Factor in Fat

Fat?

In a weight loss smoothie?

Absolutely!

Your body needs healthy dietary fats to function optimally, produce hormones, and burn body fat as fast as physically possible.

Some easy ways to get in a small serving of this essential nutrient is by adding in a small handful of almonds, walnuts or pistachios to each drink, or blending in half a tablespoon of macadamia nut oil or coconut oil.

There you have it…

7 ways to not only make your detox even more effective in terms of weight loss, fat burning, metabolic rate and energy levels, but also in taste.

Because what good is following a diet, if you don’t enjoy it!?
Why detox, though?

It’s that typical scenario …

You feel fat.

Your abs are bloated.

You’re sluggish, tired, and downright miserable with your physique.

You know you need to “diet” – but it’s just such a horrendous thought.

Weeks and months of grilled chicken breast, broccoli, garden salads and egg white omelets are not appealing in any way whatsoever.

Plus, from past experiences, you know that actually, it can take a while to see the benefits from such an eating plan. So not only are you depressed and bored with what you’re eating, but you’re not even reaping the rewards.

There must be a quicker way, right?

The #1 Way to Burn Fat Above All Else

Do you know how we burn most of our calories?

Surprisingly, it’s not through exercise.

It’s not by simply being active day today.

And it’s not through what we eat. (That includes even if you eat a high-protein diet, which encourages a greater calorie burn.)

Nope, the way we burn most of our calories is through our Resting Metabolic Rate or RMR.

Redefining RMR

So what exactly is RMR?

Essentially, it’s the calories you burn while at rest, but not sleeping.

It might sound crazy – your body actually burns calories and torches fat while you do more or less nothing, but here’s the cool thing – your body is ALWAYS working.

Just think about it – your organs are working, you’re breathing, blood is pumping in and around your body, you’re creating hormones and enzymes – so many things are going on, that your body has to keep on burning calories while you rest.

Even when you sleep you’re burning calories.

In fact, this is so important, that 60 to 70% of the calories you burn every single day come from RMR.

That’s compared to 20 to 30% that comes from exercise, and 10 to 15% from digestion (Thermic Effect Of Food).

I explain more in this video –

So now, can you see just how critical RMR is?

But that leaves us with a question:

If RMR plays such a huge role in how many calories we burn, and how quickly and how efficiently we burn body fat, then what can we do to increase this and accelerate our progress?

More Muscle

You know me – I always talk about how having more muscle is critical.

And sometimes, I think people assume that I’m trying to turn them into bodybuilders and strongmen – but I’m not.

The reason why muscle mass matters, is because the more muscle you have, the higher your RMR.

It takes your body more energy (and therefore more calories) to preserve lean muscle mass than it does to preserve fat, which means that if you’re carrying extra muscle, your metabolism is higher, you’re burning calories faster, and you’ll lose fat quicker.

Lose an Extra 7-10 Pounds This Year?

Let’s put some math into the equation here, to look at just how effective more muscle can be when it comes to losing fat.

The average woman, weighing 140 pounds at a height of 5’5 has an RMR of around 1400.

A man, at 180 pounds and 5’10 has an RMR of roughly 1900.

Can you imagine – if you could add a few pounds of muscle and boost your RMR by even just 5%, that could have an enormous impact.

An extra 5% on 1400 means an additional calorie burn of 70 per day for our lady, and 5% of 1900 is an extra 95 calories for the guy.

Over the course of a year, that adds up to 25,550 calories and 34,675 calories respectively.

Or, to put it another way (bearing in mind there are 3,500 calories in 1 pound of fat) – a little more muscle could mean our 140-pound girl could lose over 7 pounds of fat, and for our man – almost 10 pounds.

Muscle Myths

Adding muscle will not make you big and bulky.

The guys you see in the bodybuilding magazine specifically train to get that way.

They have ultra-complex routines, follow mass gain diets, and take a whole host of supplements. Additionally, it’s taken them years, if not decades, to get that big.

All we’re talking about here is adding a little lean mass by way of weight training, circuits, bodyweight moves, and even HIIT work.

The Bottom Line: Build Muscle to Lose Fat

You can do all the cardio you like – as much jogging as your heart’s desire.

You can cut your calorie obscenely low and live off salads and grilled chicken breast.

And you might lose a little weight, but eventually, that will slow right down, as your body has no mass to keep your metabolism ticking.

Or, you could focus on building a little muscle, taking your RMR through the roof, burning extra calories every single minute of every single day, and making your fat loss easier for life.

One Diet That’s Best for Everyone

Paleo?

Low-carb?

Vegetarian?

IIFYM (If It Fits Your Macros)?

Fruitarian?

Every single day, we’re assaulted by a plethora of different diets.

Everyone seems to think that whatever eating plan they’re following is the “right” one.

The Paleo freaks claim that the only way to get lean and shredded is to get rid of grains, ban gluten, and ditch dairy.

Vegetarians espouse the benefits of plant-based living.

IIFYM-ers are all about calories and macros.

While fruitarians – well, the clue’s in the name.

And I tell you what – it can get really, really confusing.

Who are we to believe? Everyone seems to put across a compelling case.

There’s certainly no doubt that with Paleo, you reduce processed foods, refined carbs, and sugars, and place your emphasis on whole foods and natural products, and get healthier as a result.

But do we really need to ban so many other foods?

As for macro-based dieting, no one can argue with the fact that lowering your calories and aiming to hit a certain macronutrient intake works in theory, and allows for flexible living, but does this type of diet neglect food quality and overall health?

And could some “healthy” diets make you sick or even kill you?

Well today, I’m here to reveal what exactly is the “best” diet for everyone.

My B-I-G Mistake

I lost the majority of my body fat by following a Paleo style diet.

That meant eating like a caveman – meat, fish, nuts, veggies, and berries, with a complete ban on dairy, grains, sweeteners, alcohol, and anything processed.

I took a firm stance that this was the perfect diet for everyone …

I was wrong.

The Paleo diet is great if it works for you.

But it doesn’t work for everyone.

The 1 Thing You Need to Know 

If you only take one thing from this blog post, make it this –

The most important component in any diet is whole foods.

This has to come first and foremost.

That means you limit supplements, limit “fake foods” chocked full of additives, chemicals, and fillers, and place your focus instead on foods from as close to nature as possible.

So you eat your lean meats, your oily fish, your fruits and vegetables, nuts and seeds, your beans your whole-grains.

This is similar to the main basis of the Paleo diet but allows for much more flexibility – for instance, you can eat high-quality dairy products with this approach, as well as legumes, both of which are banned on most Paleo diets.

This approach should stand whether you’re a vegan, a vegetarian, and IIFYM-er, or a bodybuilder.

If you have a little-processed food here and there, that’s okay, but 90% of your nutrition should come from real foods.

If you need something to remember that, try this –

How I Can Give YOU The Perfect Diet

This is a bit of a special announcement.

While I’ve given you more or less everything you need to construct your perfect diet here in this article, nutrition can still be a confusing topic.

And it’s for that very reason that I’ve hired some of the best nutritionists in the world to come under my wing, to help me create the highest quality custom meal planning service in the world.

These plans will be based on your schedule, your tastes, and even your preferred dieting style.

It’s completely customized to you.

So whether you want to eat meat-free, dislike dairy, thrive on fruit, or if you simply can’t fathom giving up your cappuccinos and croissants, don’t worry – we can factor all that in.
