Top 10 Reasons to Detox

Wednesday, April 29, 2015 1:15:33 PM America/Los_Angeles

Top 10 Reasons to Detox

#1 Increase Energy

–The more efficient your metabolism, the more you get the end product of metabolism energy.


#2 Toxins

-Toxins from pollutants, chemicals, preservatives and pesticides, are stored in our bodies, tissues, and cells. They take their toll on our metabolism, slowing it down and causing inefficiency. A detox’s first goal is to clear away those toxins and jump-start your sluggish metabolism


#3 Prevention-

 Toxins don’t just slow down our metabolism, they’re responsible for many chronic diseases. A focused detox assists our bodies in ridding those toxins that are linked to cancer, heart disease, and many more.


#4 Immune System

- When our immune system isn’t at it’s a-game, we’re an open door for the cold and flu. A detox strengthens the immune system and gives our body a fighting chance against infection.


#5 Lose Weight

- Detoxing flushes toxins in fat cells, speeds up the metabolism, and ignites the burn.


#6 Slow Aging

-Toxins prematurely kill healthy cells wrecking havoc on the skins ability to generate collagen and elastin and creates crepey skin. Detoxing increases absorption of antioxidants and vitamins that help the body fight premature aging.


#7 Improve Quality of Life

- Our bodies aren’t operating at their prime when they’re loaded down with toxins. Do you suffer from depression, memory loss, headaches, digestive problems or insomnia? A detoxification can be a fresh start and the beginning of a new quality of life you haven’t experienced in quite some time.


#8 Give Your Skin a Glow

- I want you to feel as good on the outside, as you feel on the inside. Detoxing strengthens hair and nails, and will undeniably give you a natural healthy glow by nurturing the issue that creates these elements in the body


#9 Align Mind and Emotions

- When our body is working on all 8 cylinders, we can better face the world around us, grounded, secure and clear. You’ll make better decisions, and see the world differently and your feel good hormones are produced by the same metabolic pathways that toxins can bog down.


#10 Bring Balance Back

-All our body systems are designed to work together, but when they’re overloaded with toxins it becomes burdened and don’t have the performance body or health we desire. Detoxing brings back balance and helps all systems of the body work in unison.

5 Sneaky Reasons You're Not Losing Weight

Wednesday, April 22, 2015 3:47:40 PM America/Los_Angeles

Five Sneaky Reasons Why You Cannot Seem to Lose Weight While Dieting and Exercising


One of the most frustrating feelings a person can get is when they try to do everything right yet they never get the results that they want. Examples of this are people who exercise regularly but aren’t lose weight. When you fail to lose weight even with all the exercising or dieting, it is obvious that you are doing something wrong. Do not blame your body composition or genetic history because all people lose weight similarly. Here are five sneaky reasons why you are not losing weight effectively.


You may not be burning an ideal amount of calories


When people perform cardiovascular exercises at the gym, you may notice that they are holding on to the railings found in the treadmill or elliptical machine. People who do this fail to burn an ideal amount of calories because they are getting a lot of help from holding on to the railings. In order to burn an ideal amount of calories, you must run or jog without any “crutches” aiding you.


Your cardiovascular exercise consists only of walking or mild jogging


How do you expect your body to lose excess fat when all you do is walk on a treadmill for 10 to 15 minutes? While this low-resistance level of exercise is beneficial to your heart functions; it does not cause you to lose weight. People who are successful at losing weight burn two to three times the calories that they eat in a single day. You may need to consider exercising more intensely.


You regularly eat low calorie diet food


For those unaware about this term, low calorie diet food is the equivalent of junk food that contains artificial fillers and chemicals. More and more research today suggests that these fillers such as artificial sweeteners actually make you hungrier, thus forcing you to binge eat on the wrong type of food. This results in you gaining more calories at the end of the day.


You are not consuming enough calories


Consuming way too few calories is a result of crash diets known as starvation dieting. When you starve yourself, you rob your entire body of receiving essential protein, fats, and vitamins to name a few. When your body does not have sustenance, it will ruin your metabolism, which will result in your body holding on to excess fat because it has no other source of food.


You regularly eat processed carbohydrates


Eating carbohydrates is not as simple as calories in and calories out. When you eat processed carbohydrates, these load your body with glucose, which is sugar. Examples of processed carbohydrates are white bread, white rice, and pasta that contain high amounts of glucose. For your body to burn excess fat, it must have very low amounts of sugar. With high amounts of sugar, your body will waste its energy into burning sugar instead of protein or fat.

Why Acai is a Superfood Worth Taking

Thursday, April 9, 2015 11:24:29 AM America/Los_Angeles

Why Acai is a Superfood Worth Taking


With many licensed dieticians, the Acai (asa-ee) berry is a favorite fruit that they recommend to their clients because it presents numerous healthy benefits. The Acai fruit is a native berry that you can find in South America and it has been used as an ingredient in juices, yogurts and today, health supplements. Acai is used as a health supplement because it contains body cleansing properties that you may know as antioxidants. In fact, Acai contains a very high amount of antioxidants that many experts have proclaimed this fruit to be a superfood worth taking. Let us take a journey into why this fruit is considered super healthy.

 Acai the anti-sickness berry

 The Acai berry has been a staple nutritious diet of native Amazonians for many centuries because unlike most types of berries, Acai has high caloric fat, which is a requirement of a healthy body. Aside from containing essential fats, the Acai berry fights many types of sickness that plagues many people today such as:


  • It fights against aging in your body
  • It provides anti-inflammatory properties in your body
  • It fights against free radicals that causes cancer
  • It contains anti-infection properties
  • Contains anti-hemorrhagic properties


Nutrients found in the Acai

 To understand why the Acai is considered a superfood that battles against all types of sicknesses and diseases, you must take a closer look to what the food naturally contains such as Medium Chain Fatty Acids oleic acid (Omega 9) and linoleic acid (Omega 6). These fatty acids work to reduce or regulate LDL cholesterol levels and at the same time, raise good HDL cholesterol in the body. These functions benefit your heart functions substantially. Additional nutrients found in the Acai are:




  • Vitamin B1
  • Vitamin B6
  • Riboflavin
  • Vitamin K

 These vitamins help your body metabolize carbohydrates, protein, and fat from the food that you eat.




  • Potassium
  • Manganese
  • Copper
  • Iron
  • Magnesium

 These minerals provide numerous antioxidants that your body requires to fight against free radicals such as toxins and germs that are present in the food that you eat and the environment that you live in.


Acai is even beneficial for your skin

 As the Acai fruits contain fatty acids that are good for your cholesterol, these also benefit your skin functions because it helps prevent skin dryness by providing your skin with moisture. It even works to maintain moisture on your skin so that you do not experience rashes, pimples, and other types of skin problems that most people have to deal with regularly.


Acai is a good for dieting

 Acai contains high levels of dietary fiber, which is good for your bowel movement functions.



 You are aware of the function of multivitamins in your body. Consider the Acai berry a super multivitamin that contains more nutrients and anti-sickness properties that really make your body stronger and more unsusceptible to disease. What is even better is that the Acai berry is all natural, which anybody can use to become healthier.

What You Eat is How You Act

Wednesday, April 1, 2015 1:42:31 PM America/Los_Angeles

What You Eat is How You Act    by wholelisfestyle nutrition 


 We all know that your mood can make you affect your eating habits from overeating to completely killing your appetite. If your mood can effect your food, the opposite holds true! What you Eat plays a huge part in the way you feel and act.

 Sometimes you will notice right after you eat and sometimes gradually overtime as your diet shapes your mentality from the inside out

 A good analogy made by Dr. Mercola is you have two brains, one in your head and one in your gut. They are both created from the same tissue during fetal development.

 Having a healthy gut is first and foremost when trying to address your mental state.

 Foods like the ones below can cause chemical reactions in your brain that play a huge role in your mental health.

  • genetically modified foods
  • glyphosate
  • high-fructose diets
  • sugar
  • artificial sweeteners (aspartame)

 Providing your gut the nutrients it needs is essential to maintaining a positive mood. To start changing your mood day by day there are certain foods you should look in to.

 7 Foods to uplift your mood


  1. Dark Chocolate-   Anandamide, temporarily blocks feelings of pain and depression. Dark chocolate has been referred to as “the new anti-anxiety drug”
  2. Protein-     High quality protein like eggs or almonds keeps your blood sugar levels steady for more energy.
  3. Bananas-    Dopamine, a natural chemical that boosts your mood, rich in B vitamins which help your nervous system, and magnesium  which can also boost your mood.
  4. Coffee-   Research tells that coffee triggers something in your brain to activate stem cells which improves your overall brain health.
  5. Turmeric (Curcumin)-     Has neuroprotective properties and may uplift mood and help with depression
  6. Purple Berries -    Anthocyanins, aid your brain in the production of dopamine which helps coordination, memory function and your mood.
  7. Animal-Based Omega- 3 Fats found in salmon or supplement form, one study showed a 20 % reduction in anxiety among medical students who took Omega-3, while they also work as an anti-depressent without any side effects.


We also thought we’d throw in 3 mood-dropping foods to DITCH 

  1. Sugar-   Leads to fluctuations in blood sugar, which contribute to mood swings, and exert a toxic effect on your mood and mental health.
  2. Gluten-    Can promote depression and even more serious mental health problems.
  3. Processed Foods-    This includes all foods with trans fats, artificial colors, sweeteners, and other synthetic ingredients are linked to irritability and poor mood.

When you are eating right and giving your body the nourishing nutrients it needs you will look better physically and feel better mentally.
