Are You Toxic?

If you remember my last detox blog, I talked about what a detox is and why you should be doing it. Now, I want to talk to you about how you can go about eliminating those toxins from your body and how you don’t store body fat when doing so.

Our bodies get filled with toxins by the foods and medications we consume, products we use and through our environment, such as the pollutants in the air that we breathe. At some point, our body tells us that we need a break from all of this and we need to eliminate those toxins and rejuvenate.

In Chinese medicine, they state that the liver gets clogged, which then leads to disease, whether it be an autoimmune disease, lymphatic issues, meaning your skin, which is also your body’s largest organ and what you will normally detox through. As you take in toxins, they accumulate in your body and get into your bloodstream. It is important to get these toxins out.

The number one sign that people will see showing they are toxic is their inability to lose weight. If you are on a Custom Meal Plan and are constantly working out, but you aren’t seeing any results, being toxic is probably the number one reason.

The second biggest sign of being toxic is chronic fatigue. When you think of chronic fatigue, you think of being tired all the time and waking up tired after having 8 hours of sleep. That is not normal and is a major signal that you have a toxic liver.

Although there are many signs of being toxic, such as muscle aches, joint pains, headaches or sinus issues, trouble with weight loss and chronic fatigue are the two biggest signs that you will see. Everything that you eat and drink is filtered through your liver and your kidneys and if you are not drinking enough water or you are not supplying your body with adequate vitamins and minerals, this is where everything builds up and becomes super toxic.

Detoxing is something that you should be doing on a daily basis, not just something you do once for a week. There are several things that you can do to detoxify yourself that is not nutrition based. The first way is through exercising intensely and sweating the toxins out. You can also dry brush and try different herbs and remedies.

Top Foods to Remove Toxins:

  • Apples
  • Asparagus
  • Artichokes
  • Beets
  • Milk Thistle
  • Turmeric
  • Alpha lipoic acid
  • Burdock tea
  • Dandelion root
  • Vitamin E
  • Zinc
  • Selenium

All of these things are great to use for cleansing. This is why we suggest using Detox Organics with on our 7 Day Detox Drop.

The idea is to lessen your toxic load by pulling out the toxins from your body, removing the toxins and adding in different herbs, supplements, and whole foods. If you are on the 7 Day Detox Drop, I wouldn’t recommend eating anything outside of what is in the program unless it was raw veggies. The point is to detox, so be careful not to add in anything you aren’t supposed to add. When you buy the 7 Day Detox Drop, you receive all of the information that you will need to complete the program.

Here is what you get when you purchase the 7 Day Detox Drop:

  • Jumpstart – In this book, we talk about what a detox is, why it is important and how to go about using the program.
  • Macro List – This will tell you all of the nutritional information of the food that you will be eating.
  • Grocery Guide – This will give you a list of what food you will need for each phase, as well as how much you will need to purchase.
  • Recipe Guide – This guide will provide all of the recipes you will need throughout the detox. Take note that this book is full of whole foods and real meals, not just juices.

As mentioned, Morellifit Nutrition and Detox Organics are made from all natural ingredients that are clean and great while you are cleansing.

Detoxing is something that everyone should be doing as almost everyone is toxic. It is also something that you should be doing if you are trying to lose weight or can’t get rid of that belly fat. Again, detoxing isn’t something that you do once, but a change in lifestyle, so get started now.

Dial in Your Nutrition – #SweetPotatoDiet

If you are not on a custom meal plan at the moment and you are struggling with dialing in your nutrition, I want to tell you some things you can do to help you shed those extra pounds. Here are 4 things that you should do in with your diet if you are still struggling to get those extra pounds off and you want to tweak your nutrition to work in your favor.

  1. Replace all of your carbohydrates with sweet potatoes. It doesn’t matter if the carb is processed, unprocessed, refined or unrefined, I want you to replace all the active carbohydrates in your diet with sweet potato. These don’t mean to replace your vegetables with sweet potatoes as they are not active carbs. If you are eating your sweet potato with a meal, you will want to eat about the size of your fist and if you are eating them as a snack, you will want to eat about half a fist.

While you are doing this and posting to your social media accounts, please use the hashtag #sweetpotatodiet. This is because I will have a book coming out in January 2017 called The Sweet Potato Diet and it will be 250 pages of carb cycling, why it makes sense, anabolic versus catabolic and how to balance it.

  1. Make sure you are staying hydrated. You should be drinking half of your body weight in ounces every single day. For example, if you weigh 200 pounds, you need to consume 100 ounces of water a day.
  1. You need to be eating a palm-sized piece of protein at every meal throughout your day. Whether you are eating beef, chicken, pork, lamb, or turkey, you need to be eating a palm size amount of protein for each meal. The catch is, when you begin to eat, you need to eat your protein first, before your carbohydrates or your fats. This is because protein is the most satiating food and has the highest thermic effect of food, which means it takes more for your body to digest it. This means that you burn more calories digesting protein than your carbohydrates or your fats.
  1. The last thing you should be doing is drinking an 8-ounce cup of coffee 30 minutes before your workout and you need to drink it black. No sugars and no cream. Down it. Not only will it give you added energy, but it also boosts your metabolism and acts as a fat burner.

The key to getting this strategy to work is consistency. Proper nutrition is a lifestyle and consistency is what makes it work.

It is also crucial to remember that nutrition only plays half the role in losing fat and getting into shape and its fat loss is your goal, HIIT workouts are the best because they target fat, only take 15-20 minutes, and will keep burning fat hours after your workout is done.

Now, mix HIIT workouts, as seen in HIIT MAX™, with an easily to follow, Custom Meal Plan, in which you can incorporate all of these tips, and you will be burning fat faster than you ever have before! You won’t have to wait for results, as you will begin to see them for yourself, fast!

There is one thing that we all do, whether we are willing to admit it or not, that we shouldn’t do and it is something that even I am guilty of. We all want to make ourselves better and to make our lives better, but too often we define “better” by comparing ourselves to others. We tend to look at other people and tell ourselves that somehow, that other person, is better, for whatever reason. Some do it more often than others, but we have all done it. We try to convince ourselves that we need to keep up with other people. We tell ourselves, “I want a big house like that guy”, or “I want to be famous like that person”.

What Happens When We Compare

What happens when asking ourselves these questions? What do we do to the mind and the psyche when we tell ourselves this? And what happens when we become obsessed with our own deficiencies, as opposed to the things we are really good and efficient at?

Instead of looking at another man or a woman and comparing ourselves to them, telling ourselves “I’m not that” and “I’m not as good as him or her”, why don’t we look at our own achievements and accomplishments? This type of thinking and comparing ourselves to others does nothing but cause us pain through envy and jealousy.

Let me put this into perspective for you, because it is something that we do every single day. We are only human after all. We do it when we see an ad in a magazine or when we are on social media.

Looking In On Ourselves

Instead of comparing ourselves to others that we see on the street, in magazines, television or social media, take a look at yourself in the mirror and identify the progress that you’ve made. Learn to recognize your accomplishments and achievements and allow yourself to be proud of the things you’ve done. The reality is that when you compare yourself to others, there is a chance you are comparing your beginning to somebody else’s middle or end. Are you comparing yourself to somebody who has been in the gym for their whole life, yet you are just starting out on your first training program?

Be you, be authentic and be transparent. Serve others unconditionally and live a more simplistic life. Many people chase the things that they don’t have and often these things are items and materialistic things that we don’t need. We keep buying more stuff because we think that it will make us better and make us happier, yet almost right away we are wanting the next thing and then the next. Understand why you are doing this, understand why you are constantly comparing yourself to others and telling yourself you are deficient in some way so that you can be truly happy and proud of yourself for being you.
