Quick StartDrink more water. You can't ask people to give up coffee in the morning. Trade daytime beverages for good water. Let your body rinse itself out.
Anytime there is a shift from over indulging to less indulging when it comes to food and rink intake, a matter of wast removal may become more noticeable.
Extra water consumption is a good way to ease into this.
Healthy StartSubstitute more unprocessed foods for processed foods is a slow but sure change that needs to be made, if health and vitality are goals. Getting to a good body weight will occur naturally. Slow but sure is the healthy way to go. What this means finding a healthier life style that works and you can live with. Then fine tune it for the rest of your healthier life.
The body is always replacing itself with new cells and such. Rejuvenating might is providing better supplies for the body to work with. Cleaner fuel so to speak. Cleaner fuel from healthier more nutritious ingredients. Over the years the body can be considered to be "getting dirty". Some bodies will clean themselves better than others. Everyone is a little different and reacts differently to their environment. Everyone will benefit from steps to cleanse the body. Cleansing the body allows a buildup of fat and other debris (toxins?) to be eliminated. Some discomfort may arise from this. Taking it slow will be comfortable and prone to something you stick with. It's better to be slow and consistent!
Slow but sure! Since rejuvenating your body can take years, this is a lifestyle. Get used to the idea that food needn't be such a thrill. I here "That type of food sounds too boring". I say, I'm not this easily amused. I get my kicks in other ways. I would rather grow old gracefully and healthy! Over eating is as bad as or worse than what you eat. The idea here isn't that you can't join the crow at an occasional dinner with whatever is on the menu, it's that your overall food intake on a daily basis come from fresh produce and natural foods.
I'm a big believer in moderation when it comes to altering your lifestyle. You don't want to lose more than 1/2 lb to 1 lb per week. Preferably have weeks with less loss. Ideally a lifestyle change will allow a slow but steady step into the right direction. People who try too much too fast tend to overdo and risk not getting enough nutrients or too much elimination all at once of un-wanted fat and stored toxins.
- Walking is good exercise! Part of growing old is growing out of shape. Walking will help you stay in shape in a nice low-impact way. Walk regularly and feel a spring in your step. Walking is good exercise to lose weight.
- Enough Clean Water
6 to 8 8oz glasses of water daily minimum. If once a week, you were to take a day and drink half a gallon of distilled water over several hours without food, you will feel and see results. It gives your body a time to clean more efficiently.
- Plenty of clean water. Did I mention this already? Ok, it's that important!
Substitute water for pop or whatever non-water drink you frequent. It makes a big difference over time.
