The end of the winter is the best time of year to purify our whole organism. During the harshest season, the body naturally keeps fat and toxins from bigger meals and lack of exercise. A good method for purifying the body is detoxification. Its purpose is to eliminate toxins (such as the accretion of cigarette smoke and air pollution, chemicals and heavy metals) from the body by turning them into waste, enhance the action of the organs responsible for the body purification – liver, stomach, intestines (digestive and urinary system).
Signs of body intoxication are fatigue, headache, joint pain, hypertension, constipation, rapid changes in mood, depression and irritation without obvious reasons. These states are visible when and toxins were sent to the intestines to be removed from the body but, because of the interruption of the cathartic process, they were sucked back into the blood.
Purification and detoxification of the body, which are part of the Lucky Fit program, would have a beneficial and healing effect on you. Purification does not mean to starve yourself completely but to regulate your daily nutrition and diet.
Besides the digestive system, our gastrointestinal tract has a cleaning mode. When the body has finished the digestion process, and there was enough time for this to happen, intestines switch to cleaning mode. Very often we perceive this feeling as hunger and start to eat which then interrupts the process of cleaning. For the body, this of course is not good.
In the first half of the day, until noon, it is best to consume a very light meal, such as fruits or even better – some fresh-squeezed juices, also known simply as “fresh”, as their quantity may be significantly higher like a liter or even more in cases where people have an increased appetite in the morning. Juices can only be made out of fruits or mixtures of fruits and vegetables as well, one of the best options is carrots + apples + beets. At night, the body usually starts cathartic processes and these processes continue in the morning, but the moment you eat a heavy meal is the moment your digestive system turns on and any cleaning processes get interrupted. Juices are absorbed without digestion which allows the body to continue the purifying processes, so at the same time we provide our organism with nutrients and energy and we do not interfere with its own automated purifying processes.
