A nutritional cleanse is a way of dumping the junk out of the body. A diet full of processed, high sugar, and high fat foods (the typical busy American diet) can leave behind metabolic waste products in the system and even interrupt the normal hormonal fluctuations of the body. This, in turn, can make for a breeding ground for illness as well as a terrible environment to promote weight loss. A nutritional cleanse is kind of like hitting the restart button!
Traditional "cleanses" consist of severely restricting calories and nutrients and usually end up with clients feeling weak, sick, and dizzy all the time. A nutritional cleanse is a way to get the junk out while putting the grade A fuel into the body. Nutritional cleanses are lighter on calories, which does promote a better environment for toxin loss, but they have enough nutrition to keep you fueled and functioning normally. Hence the name, nutritional cleanses.
While there are many ways to do a nutritional cleanse, I have found that for myself and my patients Shakeology nutritional cleanse is by far the most functional and effective cleanse. You can learn more about Shakeology and the cleanse here -www.myshakeology.com/MichelleCFIT
Remember that the focus with any nutritional cleanse is nutrition. Aim to rid the diet of any and all processed and sugary foods, depending on nutritionally dense foods to fuel the body.
