We diet, we exercise, we do all the right things.
Except we forget about the “toxic onslaught”.
You’ve definitely heard of some of the ones I’m about
to share with you, but not all of them…
And there’s a 99.9% chance you don’t have them all
Why does this matter? Because, there are 13 toxins
and chemicals “trapped” in your fat cells.
They cause deep inflammation in the GI tract which
makes you bloated, cramped, sprinting to the toilet,
Plus, this inflammation causes leaky gut syndrome.
Basically, if you have a “leaky gut”, tiny holes are
created in your GI tract.
From these holes, a flood of toxins, chemicals and
partially digested food seep into your bloodstream.
The result? A massive inflammatory and immune
response that attacks everything entering your body.
Besides the fact that doctors are now recognizing
this as one of the underlying causes of ALL major
This is closely tied in with the 3 fat triggers (especially
fat triggers #2 and #3).
This is what you MUST fix if you want to burn fat,
firm up, and feel great…fast.
Here are 13 toxins keeping you from a leaner, happier you
1. Processed, GMO-contaminated foods (anything made
with non-organic wheat, corn and soy)
2. Blood-sugar spiking foods & allergens (including most
wheat & gluten products)
3. Pesticides/insecticides in fruit and vegetables and
4. Estrogen, antibiotics and powerful hormones in meat
5. Perfluorooctanoic acid (PFOA) in Aluminum Pans
and Teflon/non-stick cookware
6. Toxic air contaminants (11, to be exact) in paraffin
candles, and benzene chemicals in air fresheners
7. Airborne & environmental pollutants (from vehicular
emissions, factories, residual smoke, and other sources).
8. Parabens, propylene glycol, and other toxins hiding
in skin care products (even “natural” ones)
9. Petrochemicals in everyday cleaning sprays, detergents,
and air fresheners
10. Mold spores in damp, dark corners of our homes
and stuffy, unfiltered indoor air (breeding ground for
11. Formaldehyde in furniture and carcinogens in
12. Chlorine, fluoride and 300+ chemicals in our
13. Bisphenol-A (BPA) hidden in the seals of all canned
foods, and found in plastics — the particularly dangerous
ones are plastic #3,6, and 7 on the plastic resin chart
(#1,2,4 and 5 are a little better)
Now, sure, you might have some of these “weak points”
You may avoid wheat, gluten and other allergens…and
eat certified organic (therefore avoiding GMOs).
You may have high-quality reverse osmosis water filters
and the best air filters money can buy.
And you might even bathe and wash in 100% natural
(even homemade) products.
But with the state of our modern world, there’s very
little chance you’re 100% in the clear.
Heck, unless you’re out in the wilderness in a hand-built
log cabin and living off the land…you’re almost guaranteed
to be exposed to millions of toxins the second you walk outside.
I know you don’t want to hear that, and that it even sounds
“crazy”, but it’s true.
And if you’re smart, you’ll want to reduce as many of these
And you’ll want to have extra protection, with herbs that
reduce toxic inflammation, protect the liver, and speed up
Here’s the simplest and easiest way to get started:
Trigger-Killing Secret #1: Strategic Carb-Cycling
===> Your #1 goal for rapid weight loss should be to reduce the 3 fat triggers (insulin resistance, chronic inflammation, and liver clogging).
Since insulin problems are often caused by high carb intake, and inflammation & liver clogging is usually caused by too many toxins & chemicals…eat LESS carbs…and eat MORE real food.
But DON’T do this forever. Instead, eat low-carb on non-workout/rest days, and eat moderate/high carb on workout days. A good starting point for low-carb days is 50 grams of carbs per day for women, and 75 grams for men. On moderate/high carb days, eat between .75 – 1 gram of carbs per pound (example: If you weigh 150 lbs, eat 150 grams of carbs).
While you’re doing this, make sure you also focus on reducing toxins & chemicals by eating less processed and refined foods…and instead stick to whole, natural fats and proteins. Make your low-carb days grain-free, and stick to only eating fiber-rich veggies & fruits.
The best part? Some TASTY low carb, fat-burning meals include grass-fed steaks, pasture-raised eggs, fresh bacon, and more…all with fresh veggies sauteed in grass-fed butter! Remember…eating well does NOT have to mean eating bland, boring foods.
Trigger-Killing Secret #2: Metabolic “Burst” Workouts
===> Since these 3 triggers are also improved a ton with exercise…do some short, simple “burst” workouts.These are NOT complicated or crazy…you should definitely NOT spend hours on the treadmill or elliptical (I post these workouts every Wednesday on my FB Fan Page!)
The best “burst” style fat-burning workouts last no longer than 20-30 minutes. They are intense & will make your cells MORE sensitive to insulin (meaning carbs won’t be so much of a problem).
PLUS: a bit of exercise will make you sweat meaning you clear out a bit of the GUNK clogging up your liver and inflaming your cells.
A good burst protocol includes bodyweight movements like pushups, squats, mountain climbers, planks, burpees, and more — do them in a circuit with 8-10 reps per set, and no rest in between sets. Repeat each circuit 3-5 times or by using an interval timer and going for time vs reps.
The best part? If you’re not used to exercise, or if you have bad joints…or heck, if you’re just lazy…you can take a brisk walk 20-30 minutes, 3x a week. That’s it! Just get moving a bit and eat well.
