Video: Cleansing VS. Balanced Nutrition
Hi, this is Dr. Reuben Chen and welcome to another FitTip. Juice cleanses and liquid-only "detox" diets are a popular health trend today. Some people see them as a quick fix for weight loss and a method of flushing "toxins" from the body. Some cleanses even claim you can lose up to 10 lbs. in a week. The fact is that even though you may lose some weight in a short time, cleanses and extremely low-calorie diets invariably lower the body’s metabolism as it struggles to conserve energy.
Many cleanses and detoxes often cause side effects too, like headaches, fatigue, moodiness, stomach pain, hunger pangs, and changes in bowel function. And after you complete one of these programs, you'll be inclined to eat more due to prolonged caloric deprivation. And following cleansing diets, there aren’t proper recommendations for proper nutrition to replenish the minerals and nutrients lost during the cleanse. Most people return to their original diets and any gains that were made are quickly lost. This is all bad news. But here’s the good news. If we eat a balanced diet, we cleanse and nourish all the time. A healthy diet with the right balance of nutrients enables our bodies to function optimally and break down toxins by supporting the organs responsible for detoxifying, namely, the liver, kidneys, lungs, and the colon. And a balanced diet will help replenish nutrients and minerals lost during the body’s cleansing process.
However, getting complete, balanced nutrition can be challenging. But it doesn’t have to be with the SunFit® Pack, which provides the nutrition needed to help keep the body operating at its best. It also contains products specifically targeted to cleanse and nourish. All Sunrider® products are based on the Philosophy of Regeneration®, the concept of cleansing and nourishing the body to promote balance and optimal health. Fortune Delight® and SunTrim® Plus are specially formulated with powerful antioxidants and herbal extracts to cleanse the body from the inside, protecting it from free radicals and assisting in the removal of fat and toxins. But after the body is cleansed of toxins and waste, nutrients need to be replenished which is where nutrient-dense products like SunBar® and VitaShake® come into play. Formulated from highly concentrated whole foods and select herbs, these convenient, great-tasting foods provide a complete array of vitamins, minerals, fiber, GMO-free soy protein, and healthy fatty acids that the body can easily absorb and use.
Combined with a regular fitness program like the Fitness Brigade, these formulas help you rev up your metabolism, build lean muscle, and burn unwanted body fat.
