As recommended by Dr. Turner, if you are allergic to any type of food, even on a relatively harmless level, cut it from your diet. Foods with a high glycemic index are also off limits, as they encourage the food cravings described above. These include foods that are rich in carbs and sugar such as white bread, soda, baked goods, pasta and most processed foods.
Food to Eat
A rule of thumb, according to Dr. Turner, is to eat food with low glycemic index to keep hormones balanced. Foods high in fiber, such as bananas, artichokes, raisins, oatmeal, beans and nuts will help keep your digestive tract from irritation. It’s very important, when it comes to detox is getting enough water each day.Approximately eight cups every day are enough to help boost your metabolism and give your body a medium to flush out the unwanted toxins in the liver and body.
Targeting Specific Fat Areas
Some fat deposits are more problematic than others. Stubborn areas might seem to always remain chubby as a result of biological misfortunes. Certain types of supplements and food can be used to target individual fat areas. And here is what Dr. Turner recommends:
Everyone has ab muscles. It’s the fat on the stomach that keeps them from showing. Several studies have shown that too much cortisol could be a major factor behind the accumulation of stomach fat.Holy basil – an Indian herb, helps maintain healthy cortisol levels and is commonly taken in capsule form.For reducing cortisol, you can also use spinach, citrus, nuts, beans and barley.
Less common than stomach fat but equally as challenging to take on is the fat on the back and upper trunk.It’s also a likely indication that you have high insulin levels. Eating foods containing conjugated linoleic acid such as milk, yogurt, cheese and beef are sure to help.You should also lean toward whole-grain options and green vegetables.
There are people that are “fans” of big butts, but everyone has a limit. Excess body fat on your bottom, could be due to high levels of estrogen. High in estrogen-blocking phytochemicals are cruciferous vegetables such as broccoli, cauliflower and cabbage.Chia, flax and sesame seeds have polyphenols that get rid of estrogen in the bloodstream. Pomegranates and red grapes are good fruit choices for lower estrogen levels as well.
