If you’ve ever tried to lose weight before, you already know there are tons of options at your disposal. From shakes and crash diets, to drugs and hormones, some of these solutions may actually work for an initial, short-term weight loss. Still, doctors and dietitians agree – if you don’t change your lifestyle, you’ll never keep the weight off.
Cleansing the Body for Weight Loss
Cleansing is a broad term that generally refers to eliminating unhealthy toxins from the body and implementing new and nourishing lifestyle changes. For ultimate weight loss, cleansing can help you “get back to the basics” and focus on a healthier routine. These five lifestyle changes are the pillars of an effective cleanse for weight loss
Perform Light Exercise
There’s no reason to become a marathoner or triathlete just to lose an adequate amount and maintain a healthy weight. Instead, just a few days of light exercise week can help motivate a healthier metabolism, which will in turn, boost your weight loss efforts.
For starters, make sure you begin slowly. Don’t bite off more than you can chew. A good idea is to simply take a walk around the block every weekday, on your work break, or every evening after dinner. Then, after a few weeks, you can amp up the time you walk, try going on bike rides, join a community exercise class, or even do a short workout video at home. Even small physical activity changes like these can be highly effective.
