5 Foods to Detox Your Body in the New Year

When people say the word “detox,” they often think master cleanse, juice diet or some form of fasting. What you may not know is that there are 5 foods to detox your body in the New Year—no fasting required!
Every day we eliminate or neutralize toxins through our colon, liver, lungs, skin and kidneys. However, with the volume of toxins we are exposed to through pollution, animal products and processed foods, our organs are working overtime and can’t always do the job 100%.
What you should do is incorporate foods that have detoxifying properties to speed the natural detox process along! Here are 5 foods to detox your body that are easy to incorporate into your Diet Center plan that support your body’s natural cleansing system. Don’t feel like you have to eat all of them at once—even just incorporating one of these 5 foods to detox your body adds real benefits you can see.
1. Cauliflower
Full of antioxidants, this cruciferous vegetable aids your body’s natural detoxification system and reduces inflammation. Roast with a little olive oil and garlic for a tasty treat! There are many other Diet Center recipes that incorporate this powerful vegetable as well, including Cauliflower Soup and Cauliflower “Smashed” Potatoes.
2. Broccoli
This vitamin-packed green machine helps neutralize and eliminate toxins. A perfect addition to your favorite Gold Protein Chicken Soup! Check out the recipe for Fat Burning Spicy Broccoli and Chicken Chowder.
3. Herbal II Formula
Our Herbal II nutraceutical detox supplement helps to: break through stubborn plateaus, improve metabolic rate, balance stress to energize and enhance weight loss! The perfect companion to your healthy new you, Herbal II is a health powerhouse! Ask your Diet Center Counselor for details.
4. Grapefruit
A good source of fiber, grapefruit helps lower cholesterol and aids digestion. If it’s too sour try a sprinkle of stevia on half a grapefruit for a sweet and tangy snack.
5. Cucumber
When you need to flush out toxins, reach for a cucumber! Ninety-five percent water and packed with nutrients, cucumbers sliced with Morton Lite Salt is a detox delight.
Your challenge next week is to try to add just one of these into your meals. Come back and tell us what you ate and how it made you feel!

Here’s to a healthy and happy 2018!

Healthy Holidays the Diet Center Way

Some people like to use holiday parties as a good excuse to be lenient with their weight loss plan, but between “friends-giving” and the countless holiday parties, those off-plan days can really start to add up! When you’re faced with a beautiful spread of holiday treats, ask yourself if that food item will help you achieve your long term health goals, or if it will only satisfy you in the moment.

Before heading out to your holiday festivities this year, make a promise to yourself that you WILL stick to your meal plan and you WON’T let the next few hours keep you from achieving your goals!

Healthy Holiday Tips

  1. Get Active – Even though the weather is getting cooler, there are many fun ways to get active through the holidays. Go sledding at a local park or make a giant snowman in your front yard, and try taking the stairs instead of the escalator while you’re out finishing holiday shopping!
  2. Ditch the Alcohol – The calories on alcoholic beverages add up quickly, and the way alcohol interacts with your body actually slows the metabolism of food, causing unnecessary weight gain.
  3. Plan Ahead – Planning is one of the key components to successful weight loss AND a healthy holiday season. If you know that the dessert buffet is going to be a challenge for you to avoid, bring along your favorite sweet Diet Center snack!
  4. Drink Plenty of Water – Make sure that you are drinking plenty of water, as dehydration can often be confused for hunger! Water also helps the body support a natural detox, and reduces excess bloating.
  5. Try New Recipes – Even if you’re trying to lose or maintain your weight loss, your holiday meals can (and should!) taste delicious. Using real food, and a little preparation, you can serve and enjoy a tasty holiday feast without feeling guilty about it the next day! Your Diet Center Counselor can load you up with all kinds of tasty treats you can make at home. Give one of our holiday recipes a try, and let us know how YOU plan to have a deliciously on-plan holiday by sharing tips and recipes on our Facebook page.

Breakfast Basics

Many studies support the benefits of consuming breakfast daily when it comes to managing weight. Breakfast refuels your body after a night of fasting. Think about it.  If you have have dinner at 6, skip breakfast and wait until lunch to eat– your body is going 18 hours without nourishment.  It will suffocate you fat burning fire! It also gives your metabolism a boost for the day. Furthermore, people who have lost at least 30 pounds and kept it off for at least 3 years, regularly consume breakfast as part of their weight maintenance efforts.
