Detox Recipes For Slimming, Carb Craving, and Belly Flattening

*Also see Post 46 for Raw Meal  Smoothies All of the information in the following material is provided with the assumption that a healthy diet and lifestyle is a given.  Eliminating junk food, processed foods, rancid inflammatory fats, etc. from your diet is required in order to build health and correct problems.  Eating ONE serving of nuts per day facilitates weight loss.  More than one serving can cause weight gain. If you crave carbs, these recipes may help.  Breads and grains are starches which convert to sugar. It doesn’t matter whether these grains are healthy whole grains or white flour, all of them convert to sugar which adds pounds and results in inflammation.  Your body also over time begins to adapt to how it burns fuel for energy.  If you are a carb seeker you are likely burning sugar for fuel. The goal is to help your body burn fat instead of sugar.  Because sugar is so addictive, you will “feel” cravings.  So our goal here is to get the sugar you crave without the starch, by focusing on complex sugars instead of the simple.  We can do this through fruits and some vegetables.  These fruits and vegetables need to be raw. Here is a key to judging the quality of your carbs-

Add supplements to your smoothies and juices to boost your health. Use products such as;

  • Organic 8 Greens
  • Any single green
  • All Reds
  • All Purples/Blues
  • All Yellows
  • Organic Proteins-  whey, hemp, egg, rice, pea
  • Herbs
  • Herb Formulas
  • Turmeric or Anti-Inflammatory Powder
  • Spices- such as cinnamon for example
  • Oils- coconut, hemp, flaxseed oil

Simple verses Complex Carbohydrates in Fruits & Vegetables

Pasteurized = Simple

 Cooked Between or Above 150 to 168 Degrees = Simple

Uncooked = Complex

Simple sugars put pounds on and raise your blood sugar levels.  The rise is quick the fall is quick. The energy is inefficient and leaves your body tired and supports cravings for more sugar.  Complex sugars on the other hand still raise your blood sugar, but at a slower and more moderate rate. Complex carbohydrates being raw fruits and vegetables, are good for you.  Fruits should not be as plentiful as vegetables but regardless they are health supportive.

Complex Carbohydrates

Vegetables = Builders

Fruits = Cleansers

5 Healing Fruits That Do Not Raise Your Blood Sugar & Alkalize Your Body

Lemon

Lime

Grapefruit

Avocado

Tomato

Frozen verses Fresh Fresh of course is best, but frozen is always a good option so long as no sugar is added, or any chemical; organic is also always the best choice if you can afford it.  Canned is never an option as only 10% of the value is present even if fruits are “packed in 100% juice without added sugar”.  What little value there is, has converted to a simple carbohydrate.  “Sugar-free” is also never an option as it is almost certainly sweetened with aspartame, which is a neuro toxin.  Frozen fruits are allowed to ripen in order to package them for sale, so frozen can be a great option in any climate and especially in the winter when out of season. Fruits as cleaners are amazing in restoring health.  Fruits should be eaten every day in some form just as vegetables.  Ultimately, eating 1 fruit to every 5 vegetables is considered a good balance.  However, if your health is poor or you are overweight, trying to adjust the carb cravings, you will need more fruits for a period of time.  During this restorative period, most find a 1:1 ratio, or equal parts, helpful during the transition to a new lifestyle.  Fruits and vegetables should be seen as a simple lifestyle and never a diet.  These foods are nature’s medicine.

 

Detox Recipes For Slimming, Carb Craving, and Belly Flattening

Detox Lemon, lime, grapefruit, celery, carrot, beet, ginger root, apple, parsley, cilantro, green apple, kiwi, pear, watermelon, garlic, asparagus, onion, leek, artichoke, cilantro, sage, rosemary, thyme, chai spice blends

Detox Soup Ingredients For Cold Seasons or Rainy Chilly Days Garlic, onion, fermented miso, bone broth, leek, carrot, celery, seaweed, greens, artichoke, asparagus, parsley, cilantro, green onion, rosemary, sage, thyme, beans

Water Retention & Bloating Banana, asparagus, dark leafy greens, seaweed, green apple, parsley, cilantro, watermelon, cocoa, almonds, almond butter, almond milk, high fiber—psyllium, beans, nuts.  Always drink plenty of water.

Carb Craving Apple, pear, banana, carrot, yam, beet, berries, melons, parsnips, orange, pineapple, mango, peach, all fruits, all vegetables which are higher in natural sugars will be beneficial.  Balancing this with leafy greens and non-sweet fruits and vegetables will yield the best long term results while keeping blood sugar in check.  As carb cravings begin to level out, convert to less fruits and more vegetables until reaching the improved ratio of 1 fruit to 5 vegetables. Carb-carvers can sometimes experience low blood sugar as they attempt to move away from burning sugar for fuel.  If you experience low blood sugar,  you may need to eat more raw fruit between meals to help your body transition to burning fat.

Belly Flattening Coconut oil affects the thyroid positively which in turn flattens the belly.  Flaxseed oil, high lignin, organic, is excellent for binding bad estrogens and reducing this type of fat storage.  Berries, fruits with bromelain like pineapple, and tropical fruits, are great fruits to help flatten out the belly.  Grains will add fat around the waist—remember that grains are the food of choice to fatten up the cow for slaughter. Grains need to be seriously curbed if reducing belly fat is your goal.
