Is Copying A Cleanse Diet Worth The Pain?

By Admin1 May 5, 2014 Uncategorized

Cleanse diets are a really complicated topic to discuss within a short article. This is mostly because a lot of the information out there is advertisements and testimonials regarding certain cleanse diets. For what it is worth, it seems like they mostly do not work.

During a fast, a person limits restricts their diet to only fruit juices and fresh vegetables from anywhere from a few days to several weeks. It is mostly similar to a fast. You focus on freshly made juice.

Generally, people either buy the juices from a manufacturer of juice cleanse products or they make the juice themselves using their own juicers. They tend to rely on 1,000 to 1,200 calories a day. They also include a nut milk component to provide a small amount of protein and fat.

In raw food, there are usually pathogens. Packaged juices go through a process of pasteurization that kills those pathogens. If you do make the juices at home, you have to make sure that you only make enough juice for one serving so that you do not give dangerous organisms a chance to develop. You must make sure that the produce is clean.

The claims are that these cleanses are an easy way to add more vegetables and fruits to your diet. The latest dietary guidelines recommend five to thirteen servings of vegetables and fruits per day, which amounts to 2.5 to 6.5 cups a day).

Another claim by the Muscle Maximizer System is that we become healthier from fruits and vegetables in fruit form. Proponents of these cleans claim that the drinking juice serve as a break for your digestive system. But, in reality, fiber is necessary for digestion.

The truth is that these cleanses can be very dangerous to some people. People with diabetes, nutritional deficiencies, people with kidney disease, and people undergoing chemotherapy should not be juice fasting.

The high sugar consumption in juice fasts can result in increasing blood sugar levels dramatically in diabetics, which can lead to fatigue, blurry vision, weight loss, excessive hunger and thirsts, and wounds that heal more slowly than usual.

According to USA Today, the high levels of minerals and potassium from juice consumption can build up in the blood to dangerous levels in those with kidney disease. In addition, the high levels of antioxidants coupled with the low levels of protein can be dangerous for those who are undergoing chemotherapy.

Besides, juicing removes some of the nutrients in fruits and veggies. There is no reliable scientific research to support that juicing fruits and veggies is a healthier way to consume produce. The fiber found in the skin and antioxidants found in seeds of fruits and vegetables are often removed when juicing.

Because the juice does not contain fiber that fruits and vegetables, our body absorbs fructose sugar much easily, which can affect blood sugar levels.

The other issue that arises with juicing, and I have experienced this one firsthand, is that it is not filling at all. You feel hungry all the time because chewing gives you a sense of satisfaction. The fiber left out from the juice could have helped you with consumption of the fruit or vegetable and make you feel more full.

So, the question becomes this: do we need to stop juicing altogether? No, not at all. But it the cleansing idea is not so good. You can have the occasional fruit juice (I went through a period where I had a juice for breakfast every day. And, I consider those days to be my healthiest ones, honestly). However, a diet that depends on juice alone is not healthy.

Copy These Foods For Muscle Building Success

Eggs help you provide protein for your body. They have the highest biological value of protein! You need to eat the yolk, though, remember that! Eggs contain a lot of vitamins: riboflavin, vitamins B12, B6, E, D, iron, phosphorous, and zinc.

Almonds are another food item that help you build muscles. They are a good source for alpha-tocopherol vitamin E, which is the best kind of vitamin E for your body. Vitamin E is an antioxidant that can help stop free-radical damage after a tough workout. The fewer free-radicals in your system, the faster your muscles can recover from an exercise and thus can keep growing.

Two handfuls a day should do the trick for you, according to a Toronto University study. The study showed that two handfuls do not make you gain weight. Almonds are also good for your brain insurance. An American Medical Association found that men who consumed the most vitamin E had a 67 percent lower risk of Alzheimer’s disease.

Next, there is salmon. It has a high quality of a protein and omega 3 fatty acids. Omega 3’s prevent the muscle protein breakdown. Salmon helps you improve recovery time of your muscles. Muscles build faster with new protein, so salmon is definitely a must for muscle building.

Salmon also reduces your risk of diabetes and heart disease. Researchers at Louisiana State University found that when people added omega 3 fatty acids in fish oil to their diets, their insulin resistance decreased by over 70 percent within in 12 weeks.

Yogurt is another food that helps build muscles. It is a combination of carbohydrates and protein which helps muscle growth and recovery from exercise. Make sure you buy regular yogurt, not the sugar free kind. Your yogurt needs to have fruit throughout it. The carbohydrates from the fruit will increase your blood levels of insulin, which is one of the important elements that prevent post exercise protein breakdown! How cool is that!
It keeps you healthy by reducing body fat, too.

In addition, there is beef as a food source for protein. Beef is a source for iron and zinc, which are two important muscle building nutrients, and it is the number one food source for creatine. Creatine is the number one source of energy and increasing iron in your body. Beef  is full of selenium, which, according to a Fat Loss Factor study, men with low levels of selenium are more than five times likely to have prostate cancer.

If you want to build muscles without wasting calories, look for extra lean meat. 

Moreover, there is olive oil as a good source for building muscle. It acts as anticatabolicnutrient. That was a big scary word for preventing muscle breakdown by lowering levels of a protein called tumor necrosis factor-A. This protein is connected to muscle weakness and wasting. All olive oil is high in monounsaturated fats, but extra virgin olive oil is better for you, because it has a higher level of vitamin E, which is a free radical vitamin.  Olive oil has been linked with everything from reducing osteoporosis, diabetes, lowering rates for colon cancer, and lower rates for heart disease.

And finally, the “food” that helps in muscle building is water. You did not see that coming, huh? Me neither, but my research shows that body water can hinder an exercise routine. The more thirsty you are, the slower your body relies on protein to build muscle.  Water makes up a huge portion of our bodies, 70%, so consuming it while working out helps us process and build muscle and recover.
