Cleaning

The first part of the spring natural detoxification will focus on cleaning operations. In essence, digestion is one of important processes for health and beauty, therefore, a cleaning based on the consumption of fiber and nutritious foods will give your body the opportunity to purify.

The process will last five days, from Monday to Friday, because usually, weekends are difficult times for nutritional changes.

In general, it may be enough to eat foods with low glycemic index and high fiber to provide a feeling of fullness and energy to match.

Another way of cleansing the body is fasting, because along its health benefits, fasting include improving of general health, reduce inflammation and optimize digestion, but not everybody can do this.

A lot of people have not optimum blood sugar for fasting and in these cases, the rapid feeling of dizziness and hunger will occur, while their daily activities may become difficult to complete.

1. Eliminate coffee – coffee is acidic and has diuretic role. This can be replaced with herbal tea (green tea or white tea) antioxidant to help avoid withdrawal symptoms of quitting caffeine.

In addition, always, if there is a food or beverage in your diet that provides addictive and may even miss five days of diet, it’s a clear sign that you should definitively give up on him.

2. Eat larger amounts of colored foods. Fruits and vegetables are rich in fiber, minerals, vitamins and phytonutrients that help prevent and even treat disease. The more you eat more fresh food so health will be better.

From tomatoes to broccoli and blueberries, fruits and vegetables have a low glycemic index and will keep energy levels high while the body is cleansed of toxins.

3. Eat lean protein such as egg whites, chicken or turkey, fish and soy at every meal or snack. Proteins secrete a hormone called glucagon which helps eliminate fat. Avoid red meat and dairy for 5 days.

4. Enter quality multivitamin dietary supplements with fish oils and probiotics such as acidophilus which is a friendly bacteria that help maintain healthy digestive micro-flora. Healthy digestion and nutrient absorption are the base of a good health.

5. Add essential oils and fats in the diet. Among these, the healthiest would be flaxseed, sunflower seeds, olive oil, avocados and nuts oils – for anti-inflammatory effect.

6. Drink eight glasses of water a day. Fresh, clean water helps in the cleaning process and stimulates the metabolism, giving a feeling of fullness and helps maintain a high level of energy.

Indicated would be that purification take five days at the beginning of each season. Although there is a drastic change in diet, there will be a diet plan for five days and will pay attention to the foods you eat in order to be as healthy as possible.


Nutrition

The next phase of spring detoxification will focus on nutrition quality. Although the latest trends regarding diets cause some confusion about what and how you should eat, there are four basic principles that should be followed by anyone who wants to feel and look better:

1. You are what you eat
2. The body requires all three types of macronutrients: carbohydrates, proteins and fats
3. To stay in shape you need to eat as many vegetables
4. Drink plenty of water

1. Principle: “You are what you eat”. Some nutritionists believe that we are indeed more than what we eat but what we eat can help us to be more than what we are. The statement refers to the fact that we have a deeply rooted emotional and chemical relationship with food.

Quality nutritional choices such as fruits, vegetables, whole grains, dairy products low in fat, etc. can positively influence a beauty of a person and can help prevent the onset of disease in the future.

2. Principle: “The body requires all three types of macronutrients”. The three macronutrients that are very important for diet and give your body the primary sources of energy are carbohydrates, proteins and fats. Although the body requires micronutrients such as vitamins and minerals, these are essential for the body only in small quantities.

Unfortunately, because of some diet’s restrictions and health advice for supporting low consumption of protein, fat and calories, people often try to eliminate them or greatly diminish the consumption.

Another approach would be to reduce consumption of macronutrients because of the desire to lose weight. For a healthy weight and optimal health, every person should eat the macronutrients needed by the body. The secret is to select them correctly, as follow:

- Carbohydrates with low glycemic index – these include most fruits, beans and whole grain bread or pasta. It will eliminate all foods that contain refined sugar and white flour, white potatoes, white bread and pasta. A person should try to use a minimum amount of dark green vegetables per day (broccoli, spinach) and a orange food (carrots, pumpkin, sweet potatoes).

- Lean protein – This category includes dairy products with a low fat content, but also chicken, fish, soy protein powder, eggs, lean meat, beef and turkey. It is recommended to eat as little fat red meat and cheese. Proteins have a role in muscle repair, blood sugar control and weight loss.

- Good fats – These include monounsaturated fats like olive oil and avocados. It should be consumed foods containing omega-3 essential fats that the body can’t produce. These include flaxseed, almonds, walnuts oils, cold water fish (salmon and tuna) and fish oil. Omega-3 fats are anti- inflammatory and help improve the appearance of skin, hair and nails. It will completely eliminate trans fatty acids from your diet (partially hydrogenated fats).

3. Principle: “To be fit you need to eat as many vegetables”. An adult needs at least 5-9 servings of colorful fruits and vegetables a day to have a state of optimum health and beauty. Fruits and vegetables contain not only an abundant amount of minerals and vitamins, but they also offer a rich blend of phytonutrients – plant occurring chemical that can prevent a number of diseases. Examples of phytonutrients are: lycopene in tomatoes, sulfurophane of broccoli, flavonoids in dark chocolate, berries and grapes.

4. Principle: “Drink plenty of water.” The body needs sufficient liquid to eliminate toxins, to digest and to maintain functions of cells. Without water, a person can see a lot of symptoms like constipation, lack of energy, loss of skin elasticity and weight gain.

Other quality ingredients that are considered to have a role in treatment and can be included in the diet are dark chocolate (70%) and red wine, but only in small quantities.


Hydration

The third part of the spring detox focuses on hair and skin hydration in the most natural way. Many people associate this hydration with moisturizing creams that offer youthful skin and hair conditioners after which the hair remains soft.

Spring hydration is an internal process that involves food and supplements. There are some foods that can help a person look 10 years younger.

Essential for health.

Fats can be good or bad. Bad fats that must be eliminated from the diet are those created chemical called trans-fats (or partially hydrogenated fats). Many foods contain these types of fats that are designed to extend the life of the product, being very stable, but the body did not approve these at all, as they can increase cholesterol levels, affecting the health of the arteries and can cause certain types of cancer.

Other types of fats that are designed to minimize pro-inflammatory reactions in the body are saturated fats that are found fat cheeses, ice cream and red meat, but they should be eaten only occasionally.

Fats are necessary to moisturize the skin, hair and nails from the inside out; these are called essential fatty acids. These fats can’t be produced by the body and therefore must be consumed through diet. Specifically, essential fatty acid called alpha-linolenic acid or omega-3 essential fats has been shown to provide many health benefits, including:
- Reduce inflammation
- Reducing the risk of heart disease
- Lower cholesterol
- Improve mood and attention
- Stimulate healthy skin.

Sources of omega-3

Omega-3 are available in many dietary sources such as flaxseed oil, eggs (which have high concentrations of omega-3), cold-water fish (tuna and salmon), walnuts and almonds, and other types of seeds. However, it is often difficult to eat enough food for the body to receive the ideal amount of omega-3 fatty acids.

In addition, the researchers investigate how safe it is to include salmon and tuna in a person’s daily diet, because although fish is a great source of protein, selenium, vitamin D and omega-3 essential fats, its toxicity level is often quite high.

In addition to eating foods rich in omega-3, experts recommend daily consumption of fish oil. Fats have twice as many calories as protein and carbohydrates and should not be consumed in the same amount as these.

Realize what you eat

This refers to focus less on what you eat and focus more on how you eat. Certain eating behaviors may have significant positive effects on weight loss, digestion and overall health. Simply will implement the following recommendations, and after two weeks you will notice that your health status has changed positively.

Food behaviors listed below focus on awareness of eating. Unfortunately, many people are rushed and busy, used to eat very fast.

1. Do not skip breakfast! – Researchers have shown over time that people are constantly serving breakfast are much healthier, have more energy and lose weight over the long term. Examples of food options which can be eaten for breakfast:
- Protein shake
- Cheese, fruit and nuts
- Yogurt, fruit and nuts
- Egg white omelet
- Whole grains and milk.

2. Eat until you feel your stomach almost full, not full. Most of us ingest food in a hurry, in a maximum of 5-10 minutes.

Besides digestion will suffer because of chewing food improperly, this fast pace of eating does not give your body time to register a feeling of fullness. In fact, it would take 20 minutes to reach the receptors in the brain and to register a feeling of fullness. By extending the time for meals, at least 20 minutes, you will feel full and thus you eat fewer calories.

3. Do not eat after 7 pm. When you make behavioral changes related to eating habits, these may be the most difficult to initiate and follow. When you feel the need to chew something, you can choose cucumbers, celery or broccoli bouquets. In addition, you can drink herbal teas or water to reduce sugar cravings and provide a feeling of full stomach.
