It seems like the hot summer weather has finally arrived. This means more people will be spending time at the cottage, on a beach or hanging out around the pool. Spending time in a bathing suit is scary for a lot of people, especially us women. This is the time we really want to feel comfortable in our body.
It’s not about being stick thin, but about being fit, healthy, and confident. We all know exercise, especially strength training is a major factor in having a toned, healthy body, but it’s not all about exercise. Nutrition also plays a huge role in body composition and health. Two areas in particular come to mind when talking about weight loss and promoting muscle building, consuming enough protein and reducing inflammation by alkalinizing your body. Today we are going to talk a little more about the second point as it aligns perfectly with detoxing, a topic many are interested in during the hot summer months.
Detox’s are a great way to reset your body and nutrition. They force us to focus on eating whole foods, removing processed junk foods, and staying hydrated.

- Stay hydrated – hydration is key to kidney function and the removal of water soluble toxins. Drink at least 2 litres of clean beverages daily.
- Be a morning person – start your day at the same time and enjoy an alkalinizing glass of warm lemon water. This helps stimulate your liver, increase liver enzymes, reduce inflammation, and improve digestion. Squeeze half a lemon into 8 oz. of warm water and drink on an empty stomach.
- Get green – enjoy a variety of green vegetables. Loaded with fiber and detox supporting minerals, greens are essential to promoting detox.
- Ditch the sweets – sugar increases inflammation and promotes toxicity. Say good bye to the late night sweets and hello to better sleep, energy and health!
Detoxes don’t have to be scary and the principles can help promote everyday health and happiness. It is important to live a life celebrating whole foods, nature and balance!
