Are you trying to lose weight, reduce bloating and clear up your skin? You can lose weight with a cleanse and also reduce these symptoms of food intolerance with an elimination challenge!
Most of us go through our lives not always feeling fit and happy and the main reason is because of the food we are eating. Gluten and Sugar can get in the way of weight loss mainly because of their inflammatory response. It can be very frustrating when we are not achieving the results we want, especially when we are working out and watching our portion size when we eat. If weight loss isn’t your number one motivator, a few more reasons to try the elimination cleanse are to increase energy, get rid of arthritis, and reduce bloating and allergies.
How can I lose weight with a cleanse?
By eliminating sugar and gluten for 7 days, you will give your body a chance to heal on the inside, reduce inflammation, increase insulin sensitivity and improve functioning. Symptoms of food intolerance get in the way of living a Fit and Happy lifestyle. Just by reducing inflammation and increasing insulin sensitivity, your body will burn fat more efficiently and improve your hunger and satiety signals, helping you to lose weight. Get rid of the symptoms and inflammation and start burning fat! Also, by keeping your blood sugar stabilized, you will not experience the crashing after you eat something containing too much sugar. Instead, your energy levels will stay up and you will not experience the cravings you once had. You may even experience improvement in your skin, and look and feel younger!
If you’re suffering from food intolerances or sensitivities, or even if you don’t know you are, an elimination challenge could be the most profound dietary experiment you’ll ever try.
