The beautiful fall season followed by the winter chill is the right time to balance your body with weight loss detox. A natural cleanse and a few exercise secrets will allow you to enjoy the season with less stress and to be ready for the cold and flu season.
You can do an easy weight loss detox to reach your body or metabolic balance by changing your food and nutrition preferences based on your bio-individuality.
Winter Detox Cleansing Foods
As we know, processed foods contain chemically derived ingredients our bodies don’t know how to read. This creates a metabolic disaster-imbalance.
Coupled with chronic stress and low level of exercises empty nutrition food contributes to chronic inflammation, which can lead to imbalance in the female hormones in our body.
Toxic chemicals in the water we drink and the air we breathe also affect our metabolic balance and contribute to inflammation in our body, which can lead to all types illnesses.
Fall is the right time to start and easy fall natural cleanse detox with seasonal whole foods. To do so, incorporate as many seasonal, local and freshly harvested vegetables in your diet: greens (kale, dandelion, beet greens, etc.), vegetables (fall squashes, beets, carrots, cauliflower, onions, garlic, zucchini, pumpkin, etc) fruits (avocado, apples, pears, kiwi, watermelon, etc.) beans (mung beans, lentils, etc.) nuts (walnuts, pistachios, pumpkin seeds). They all are full of fiber and help elimination.
Don’t forget to enjoy local the harvest with juices and smoothies you can drink in the morning or as a snack.
You can always use some fruits and vegetables for homemade cleansing detox recipes or rejuvenating facials (tomatoes, avocado, grapes, watermelon, apples, pears, etc.).
Fall and Winter Exercise Shortcuts
We are moving towards Winter, and it means that the days are getting shorter and shorter following naturally after the many long days of light. But there is no excuse for us to exercise less because we don’t have time. Why? Well, we always can find exercise shortcuts to burn some calories:
- park your car as far as possible;
- take stairs whenever you can;
- get up every fifteen minutes to stretch and deep breathe toh help reduce stress and detox;
- dance / move / jump / stretch in the kitchen while you preparing a meal;
- use more bending and stretching any time you clean the house, do gardening or talk on the phone (you can do the whole working out routine while text massaging).
We have to learn how to prioritize our health, our relationships, our jobs, etc., to sort them out and start a wonderful journey to wellness – a journey that will help us to get back our happy mind and healthy body.
Let us be smart, patient and full of a sense of humor if we want to feel and look fabulous this fall and winter season.
Breathe, smile and be happy.
