Effective Weight Loss Programs Cause Fat Loss And Detoxification

The most effective weight loss programs are those that result in fat loss and balanced detoxification. Weight loss, specifically fat loss, and enhanced detoxification are synonymous when done correctly.  Detoxification is a term that technically refers to the two-phase process of removing toxins from the body. Many of the toxins the body holds onto are stored in fat.  When one undergoes a proper fat loss program, toxins are released and eliminated from the body.  Therefore, detoxification results in not only effective weight loss and fat loss, looking and feeling better, but overall health improvement.

Not all weight loss programs cause primarily fat loss, and not all fat loss programs enhance detoxification.  For long-term and effective weight loss, you have to have a fat loss program that enhances detoxification.

Weight Loss Programs With Detoxification Results in Significant Fat Loss

Most toxins are lipophilic compounds, meaning, they are literally “fat loving” compounds.  They love to hang out in fat cells.  They also promote fat gain.  The more fat present on a person’s body, the more room for toxins to be stored.  In addition, the more stored toxins, the more they can promote more fat stored.  Thus, a vicious cycle goes on, unless you remove the toxins from the stored fat.

Why Detoxification Is Important in Weight Loss Programs

Research data implies that the obesity epidemic in the U.S. is due to toxic overload. An article in the April 2002 issue of The Journal of Alternative and Complementary Medicine1 concluded that: “The commonly held causes of obesity -overeating and inactivity- do not explain the current obesity epidemic.  Because the obesity epidemic occured rather quickly, it has been suggested that environmental causes instead of genetic factors may be largely responsible”.  In other words, they are saying that environmental toxins created in large amounts over the last 50 to 100 years could explain the widespread obesity epidemic.

We All Have Toxins In Our Bodies

In our current environment, we have toxins everywhere: from chemicals used in cleaning products, to outgassing of newly installed flooring and newly painted rooms, and from exposure to pesticides and plastic food containers.  Many of these toxins have estrogen-like activity.  As Harry Eidenier, PhD stated: “We are swimming in a sea of estrogens”.  So what?  Excess estrogens in the body cause fat storage.

It is not a question of whether or not we are exposed to toxins, we are all exposed.  The questions should be what is the extent of exposure and how many of these toxins are stored in our fat cells. Toxins are even found in babies in their mothers’ wombs!  In a study overseen by the Environmental Working Group (EWG), researchers at two major laboratories found an average of 200 industrial compounds, pollutants and other chemicals in 10 newborn babies, with a total of 287 chemicals found in the group. Of the 287 chemicals found in newborn umbilical cord blood, 180 cause cancer in humans or animals, 217 are toxic to the brain and nervous system, and 208 cause developmental problems.  EWG detected 287 chemicals of 413 tested (69 percent) in umbilical cord blood samples from 10 newborn babies, with a range of between 154 and 231 for each child. They found 101 chemicals in all babies tested. You can go to the Humane Toxome Project homepage to find toxic exposure results in your area.

What Happens During Detoxification?

Technically speaking, detoxification occurs in all the cells of the body, not just the liver.  Cellular detoxification is a two-phase process.  A simplified explanation in a multi-step process is being provided for the scope of this article.  Phase 1 detoxification essentially pulls toxins stored in fat cells and converts them to a form so they can be circulated in the bloodstream.  Phase 2 detoxification essentially converts the toxins circulating in the bloodstream to a form where they can be excreted from the body via urine, feces and sweat.  Balanced phase 1 and 2 detoxification is crucial.

For the beginning of the year, we are having a detoxification program designed to pull toxins from fat stores and decrease stored fat as described above.  On Saturday, January 9th from 12:30 to 2:00 pm, we are having our introductory session for the “Post Holiday Group Detox/Weight Loss Program“.

We covered all bases for an effective weight loss program:

  • Patient program guides and instructions are included.
  • Suggested meal plans are included.
  • All detox-enhancing supplements are included in the price of the 3 week detox program.
  • No time to make your meals?  Can’t cook?  We have chosen CookSF as an optional part of this program because they deliver organic and gluten-free meals at very reasonable prices.  Most of their prepared meal choices are in line with the principles of our detoxification program. You may purchase detox meals during the program at an additional cost.  Get a taste of their food when you attend on Saturday.
  • Selected personal exercise trainers will be present this Saturday as an option to help you get correctly started on a sustained exercise program.

Come join us on January 9th to find out more about the weight loss/detoxification program that is unlike the vast majority of weight loss programs out there.  You will end up having sustainable, effective weight loss and fat loss, look and feel better.  Contact us now to reserve your seat with program guides and materials, and of course, your free meal.  For those outside the San Francisco bay area, contact us, too.  If we get enough interest from outside our area, we will do a webinar version of the program.
