Step 3 Avoid These 10 Common Food Additives (Free Download)
Food additives find their way into our foods to help ease processing, packaging and storage. But these additives are foreign toxins for our body and can lead to over toxicity and weight gain. One of the best things you can do when cleansing and detoxing your body to lose weight and increase your energy is to avoid these additives where possible. To make it easy for you we have put together a free shopping guide on the top 10 Food Additives To Avoid.
Step 4 Get A Good Quality Juicer
Juicing is critical for optimal health as it helps to deliver life-giving nutrients to the cells and eliminate toxins. This simple process builds immunity helping activate and strengthen the body's immune system. A good quality ‘cold pressed’ juicer is an essential tool in the kitchen.
Step 5 Shop Organic
Using organic produce in the process of healing the body is essential. Reducing toxic load in all forms is a primary aim so as to reduce the load on one's immune system allowing it to activate the body's own healing mechanism. It should go without saying but eat less processed foods and more wholesome foods! This means reading labels. The fewer ingredients the better, and if you see chemical additives, preservatives, artificial colors or flavors (usually represented by numbers) leave it on the shelf or as David Wolfe says "use it as a house brick".
Step 6 Eat More Superfoods
Superfoods are a special category of foods found in nature. By definition they are calorie sparse and nutrient dense meaning they pack a lot of punch for their weight as far as goodness goes. They are superior sources of anti-oxidants and essential nutrients - nutrients we need but cannot make ourselves. Incorporating more of them into your diet makes perfect sense for optimal health.
Step 7 Learn How To Prepare Delicious Healthy Foods
Knowing it's important to include fresh/raw foods in your diet and actually doing it are two different things. We have received hundreds of emails from people asking to be shown how to prepare more healthy and delicious meals. This cooking class series on DVD is the best way to start preparing delicious and easy meals for the whole family to enjoy.
Step 8 Practice Yoga And Meditation
A regular practice of Yoga and meditation has a profound effect on physiological systems and one’s state of mind. Yoga is well known for its therapeutic health benefits, especially as it is such a great tool to help to deal with stress.
Step 9 Join The Food Matters Community
Sharing your ideas and successes with other like minded people is a great way to learn and grow. Healing is as much about good nutrition and good decisions as it is about connecting with like minded individuals in a nurturing environment.
