Learn About Detox Cleansing Foods

If you feel tired, sick, or weighed down you need to start exercising and eating right.  “The Perfect Little Body Workout” will motivate you to exercise for better health.  Start slow, try a couple exercises each day.  In time you will be able to exercise longer and feel better.

Eating right is also very important.  Food isn’t just calories.  The type of food or how you get the calories makes a difference.  Every bite we take is fuel for our body.  It is important for us to start making the connection between what we eat and how we feel.

Creating and trying new healthy recipes is my passion.  I like to steam, grill and bake raw veggies which helps me detox my body.  I often eat raw veggies though out the day in small portions.

As an example, in addition to being very healthy in general – beets, Brussels sprouts, and sweet potatoes will also act as a cleanse to flush you out if you are feeling sluggish.

Beets are wonderfully sweet and are also said to lower blood pressure.   Brussels sprouts have high cancer-fighting properties, and sweet potatoes pack a super beta-carotene punch.

They taste great alone or with other veggies, such as ginger, which is good for your heart.

Exercise and healthy eating will also help your mental attitude and will help you to begin thinking in a more positive way.  It is all about learning ways to stay healthy.

Wake Up to Water

Everyone should start rehydrating immediately after a full night’s sleep. If possible drink at least 16 ounces of H2O as soon as you wake up in the morning. Doing this boosts metabolism by 24 percent.

A study determined that muscle cells grow faster when they’re well hydrated. A general rule, drink 2 liters or a half gallon of water a day. Drinking more water will increase your fat loss over a period of 6 months.

Also drinking lots of water throughout the day helps your entire body. You will notice your skin will be softer and your eyes will not be as dry.

Listen to your body. Drink how much you feel you need. Everyone has different activies and body sizes. For some very active people,1 gallon is a good target.

The way you know if you are drinking enough water is by your urine. If you are hydrated healthy urine is usually clear. If your urine is yellowish, then you need to increase your water intake.

Note that after taking vitamins or medications your urine will often turn yellow for a couple hours.

Remember:

2 glasses of water after waking up – helps activate internal organs
1 glass of water 30 minutes before a meal – helps digestion
1 glass of water before taking a bath – helps lower blood pressure
1 glass of water before going to bed – avoids stroke or heart attack
