3 Steps to Successful Cleansing

Most of my patients can reset their metabolism by switching from sugar and processed foods to real, whole, fresh food. But there are some who need a more powerful reboot, a cleanse. And there are so many programs and cleanses out there—some good, some not. Some even include a lot of fruit juice, which can be a problem if you have diabesity or struggle with sugar issues.

For those who are interested in a trying a cleanse, who need a reboot, who have FLC Syndrome (where you feel like crap), there are a few things to keep in mind.

Not just any cleanse out there will work—there are a lot of fad diets with potential short- and long-term consequences masquerading around the internet as legit medical cleanses. You need to follow the guidance of someone who understands the science behind how the body functions and what nutrients it needs to thrive.

That is why I recently wrote The Blood Sugar Solution 10-Day Detox Diet, which explains the root causes of our toxic bodies and minds. One single ingredient in our food supply leaves millions of us desperate for a quick reboot on our health along with a yearning to press pause on the craving and food addiction cycle. What’s the culprit? Sugar!

The fact that we eat 152 pounds of sugar and 146 pounds of flour per person per year in America makes it impossible for people to control their behavior around food. These substances are highly addictive; in fact, they are eight times as addictive as cocaine. Rats will keep eating sugar even while they are getting electric shocks to make them stop!

The truth is that we blame people for being overweight, but it’s not their fault. Our taste buds, hormones, brain chemistry and hormones have been hijacked by the food industry. The 10-Day Detox Diet helps reset your hormones and brain chemistry and turns off inflammation in just 10 days, and the result is not only a significant jump-start on weight loss but also a dramatic change in health.

When you eat real, whole, fresh foods that are highly concentrated in vitamins and minerals, phytonutrients and fiber, you provide your body with the fuel it needs to stay healthy and prevent and heal from disease. But you also have to remove the junk. All the sugar, flour and processed foods in our supermarkets today interfere with a healthy, functioning body. By literally following the meal plan I provide for you in my book, you will automatically indulge in the good stuff and avoid the bad stuff. It couldn’t be easier!

I learned about creating these delicious, wholesome, hypoallergenic meals by observing my good friend Jill Pettijohn. She is the person I picked to design and prepare healing meals on my detox retreats. She was the one I picked to create the meals for The 10-Day Detox Diet. Jill is a chef and leader in safe, effective cleansing. Jill’s cleanses are the hallmark of healthy eating. They are low glycemic, organic and toxin-free, as well as fresh and phytonutrient-rich. This means your insulin levels won’t spike when you follow any one of her cleanses and your blood sugar levels will normalize. Maintaining low circulating insulin is the first and most important step in leading a vital life at the right weight for your body.

As importantly, your body will be flooded with nutrients it depends on to stay healthy. One of my favorite meals on Jill’s Cleanse is the Spinach Watercress Soup. It’s made with creamy avocado that supports your fat burning hormones and has watercress, which is a green leafy plant that is high in antioxidants and disease-preventive compounds called isothiocyanates that may inhibit cancer growth.

When I want something sweet but I don’t want to send my blood sugars soaring, I love sipping on her Almond Chai, which is made with real vanilla bean, raw almonds and chai spices like cinnamon and clove, which, studies show, lower blood sugar levels.

Since Jill is the expert in creating great-tasting juices and soups for cleansing, I asked her what tips she has for you:

  1. Choose raw, LIVE ingredients in order to optimize your nutrition status while cleansing. Not all raw food is alive (like raw meat!). Make sure you take the time to soak or sprout your ingredients, like nuts and seeds, in order to activate important enzymes necessary for proper digestion and assimilation.
  2. Ensure a variety of flavors, colors and ingredients to maintain pleasure and sustain interest. Jill’s Cleanse has every color of the rainbow from bright green to deep pink—all from using real ingredients like vegetables, nuts and berries. This not only ups your enjoyment factor but also ensures a variety of nutrients, so you maximize nutrition.
  3. Keep it quick, simple and accessible for your on-the-go lifestyle. I love Jill’s Cleanse because I can actually enjoy it! Because her products are already prepared for you (and can be shipped via FedEx anywhere in the country), it is easy to incorporate them into my busy schedule.

7 Things That Vegans and Paleo Dieters Agree on

Woman Holding a Bundle of CarrotsThere is no “right” diet for everyone.

What works for one person may not work for the next.

For this reason… the argument about which diet is best is pretty much pointless.

The only right answer, is that it depends on the individual.

There are all sorts of things that need to be taken into account.

This includes age, activity levels, food culture, metabolic health… and, last but not least, personal preference.

That being said, healthy diets (or “ways of eating”) that are seemingly polar opposites of each other do have more things in common than some might think.

For example… the paleo diet seems to be pretty much the opposite of a vegan diet, or a whole-foods, plant-based diet as some like to call it.

There are glaring success stories for both diets, and even some clinical trials showing impressive health benefits (1, 2).

If we take a look at what these diets have in common, instead of what they don’t, then we can start to form some conclusions about what truly constitutes a healthy diet.

Here are 7 things that the vegans and paleo folks actually agree on…

1. The Standard American Diet (SAD) is a Disaster

The typical modern diet is often termed the Standard American Diet (or SAD… an appropriate acronym).

Greedy, Overweight Man Eating Junk Food

This is the diet the average person is consuming every day, and it is an absolute disaster.

It involves all sorts of processed, packaged foods that don’t resemble anything humans were exposed to throughout evolution.

These foods are extremely low in essential nutrients and can cause people to become deficient in key nutrients over time.

Not only is this diet low in healthy foods, it is also very high in ingredients that are downright harmful.

This is a double whammy. Very little good stuff, but plenty of disease promoting crap.

Everywhere the “modern” diet goes, diseases follow… this awful diet may just be the single largest preventable risk factor for some of the world’s most serious diseases.

The vegans and paleo dieters may disagree on why this diet is bad, but they pretty much all agree that it is a disaster.

Bottom Line: The paleo folks and vegans may disagree on why the Western diet is bad, but both groups agree that this is a very harmful way of eating.

2. Diet is Better Than Drugs


Most chronic, Western diseases are preventable.

Not only that, but in many cases they are even reversible using changes in diet (and lifestyle).

This includes obesity, metabolic syndrome and type 2 diabetes.

That being said, just because it is possible, it doesn’t mean that it is easy.

A dramatic lifestyle change can be difficult and most people don’t succeed in the long run when they try to do it (3).

But at the very least, people should be given the option of doing this, with support from their health professionals.

Most vegans and paleo people agree that changing the diet is a much better option than trying to solve these chronic diseases with drugs.

As we know, these drugs don’t really “cure” anything… they don’t address the root cause of the problem, only the symptoms.

Even with drugs, these diseases usually get worse over time.

Bottom Line: Many chronic, Western diseases like obesity and type 2 diabetes are reversible using changes in diet and lifestyle.

3. Refined Carbs and Sugar Are Bad

Most vegans and paleo folks do agree that refined carbs and sugar are unhealthy.

In fact, pretty much everyone agrees that this is true… although some like to put the major emphasis on other aspects of the diet.

Refined carbs have little to no fiber, are stripped of many of their beneficial nutrients and can lead to rapid spikes in blood sugar, contributing to hunger, obesity and disease (4, 5, 6).

Sugar can be even more problematic… it is 100% “empty” calories and can contribute to severe metabolic problems when consumed in excess (7, 8).

If you’re going to eat carbs, then eat whole, unprocessed carbs that resemble what they looked like in nature.

Bottom Line: Pretty much everyone agrees that refined carbohydrates and added sugars are harmful, including most vegan and paleo proponents.

4. Processed Oils Are Unhealthy

Bottles of Vegetable Oil

Some of the most popular versions of the vegan diet are ultra low-fat.

They basically shun all sources of added fats.

The paleo diet endorses some fats, but shuns trans fats and refined vegetable oils.

Therefore, even though vegans and paleo folks disagree on certain fats, both are in agreement that refined vegetable oils and trans fats are unhealthy.

It is well known that trans fats are harmful. They are linked to a drastically increased risk of heart disease and many other diseases (9, 10).

Processed vegetable oils, on the other hand, are low in essential nutrients, easily oxidized and contain way too many Omega-6 fatty acids, which can contribute to an imbalance in important biochemical processes (11, 12, 13).

Bottom Line: Both paleo and vegan diets shun processed seed- and vegetable oils, as well as artificial trans fats.

5. Plant Foods Are Super Healthy

It is a huge misunderstanding that the paleo diet is mostly a meat based diet.

This diet encourages consumption of vegetables, fruits, nuts, seeds and even tubers… which are all plant foods.

Blonde Woman Eating an Apple

I personally eat a low-carb diet that is mostly paleo and I have room for a ton of vegetables. I have honestly never eaten even close to this amount of vegetables before.

Looking at calorie breakdown, my diet is mostly animal foods. But looking at volume or weight, my diet is about 2/3rds plants.

Even very low-carb diets leave room for a ton of vegetables and people who adopt such a diet often end up eating much more vegetables than they were doing before.

Only extremist versions of low-carb/paleo are zero carb (barely any veggies), pretty much all the books and key opinion leaders of these diets advocate consumption of plants.

Bottom Line: The importance of eating plenty of plant foods is something that pretty much everyone agrees on, including paleo and low-carb dieters.

6. Optimal Health Goes Way Beyond Just Nutrition

Woman Holding a Carrot, Looking Skeptical

Optimal health is about more than just eating healthy.

There are several other lifestyle factors that are just as important.

One of the reasons for the success of “diets” is that people tend to make other lifestyle improvements at the same time.

Exercise is a major factor here… it is an essential part of being healthy.

It leads to all sorts of benefits for both physical and mental health, can dramatically lower the risk of chronic disease and help you live longer (14, 15).

Sleep is another huge factor… poor sleep is one of the strongest risk factors for obesity and many chronic diseases (16).

Although often underemphasized, getting quality sleep may just be the most important thing you can do for your health.

Diet is just one part of the puzzle, it is incomplete without the rest.

7. Real Food is The Key to Good Health

Humans can thrive eating a variety of diets.

Some people do best eating a low-carb diet high in animal foods, others a low-fat diet high in plants.

Vegan, paleo, Mediterranean, etc… these diets can all work, for different people.

As long as you stick to real, unprocessed foods, then the exact types of foods you choose becomes less important.

Real food is the key to good health, processed junk food is not. Period.
