Detox Results

21-Day Detox Challenge Complete

Our office just finished up our 21-Day Detox Challenge and it went great!

We used the Standard Process 21-Day Program that really focuses on eating the right things, and getting back to good habits in diet and fitness. It is not a replacement of food or a liquid diet like a lot of other programs that restrict your calories. You can eat as much vegetables as you want and you should never feel hungry.

The detox really helps you get back to portion control & healthy, nutritious eating habits. It puts you in tune with how you eat and what you eat. In our modern society there is a great disconnect with the food we eat. Many of us get into this fast paced lifestyle where we think we only have time for fast food and don’t bother to take the time to enjoy the pleasure of eating.

All the participants lost weight, which is a welcome side effect of eating the right things and taking time for exercise. Participants also saw a decrease in body fat % and BMI.

Some felt more energized, like the cloudiness in their heads was cleared.

It was hard but others were able to quit caffeine and sugar and are still resisting today!

What’s next: We hope everyone will slowly add certain foods that were limited during the detox to their new normal healthy diet lifestyle. The detox can also aid as an elimination diet to see if your body may be intolerant to certain foods (gluten, egg, soy).

We will definitely be doing this challenge at least once a year, and hope to help anyone who can benefit!

Vegan Diet

Vegan Diet Trumps Other Diets In Weight Loss

A recent study conducted by the University of South Carolina looked at how much weight people lost on five different types of diets. The biggest weight loss was seen in those on a vegan diet (surprisingly?).

The Study: Participants were randomly assigned to one of five diets to follow over a six-month period. They also attended educational seminars about their diets and were provided healthy snacks. The diets followed were vegan, omnivore, semi-vegetarian (who ate meat periodically), pescatarian (fish and vegetables), and vegetarian (no meat, but animal products were ok). Even though the vegan diet is high in carbohydrates, participants were able to loose an average of 16.5 pounds more than those on diets that contained meat or animal products. At the end of the study those in the vegan diet group had lower body mass indexes (BMIs), lower amounts of saturated fats, and a better balance of macronutrients (carbs, fats, proteins).

Vegans: This diet is characterized by the absence of meat and animal products. People on this diet do not consume eggs, dairy products, or honey. People may choose this diet for health, ethical, or personal reasons.

Remember: Everyone is different. What works for one person in losing weight may not be optimal for another. Moderation and long-term success should be the end goals of any diet. Eating any diet that includes refined grains that we find today may not be the healthiest or easiest way to lose weight. Whole grains should be used to reach your daily carbohydrate needs. Whole grains are more filling, nutritious, and sustainable than refined grains. There are many healthy and unhealthy ways to lose weight. Try to find a healthy way to keep weight off that aligns with your lifestyle.
