Tips To Get You Started

  • If you are a coffee drinker start now to cut back to cut out.  It’s not forever, just for the first 11 days or so.  Coffee is very acidic and it takes 64 ounces of water to replace the ph level that one 8 ounce cup of coffee removes from your body.  Decaf is even worse.  You will have to drink 84 ounces of water.  Coffee will rob your bones of vital minerals and makes them very brittle.
  • Soda is more dangerous than you think.  One can of soda a day will put as much as 20 co a year on you.  It also is very acidic and as a result depletes your bones of minerals causing them to be very brittle. Diet soda is worse so stay away from all  soda.
  • Carbonation of any kind will rob your bones of minerals making them very brittle and this includes club soda and sparkling water. It doesn’t mean you can never enjoy sparkling water.  You don’t want to make it a daily routine. The best daily routine is water.
  • Water is key for many reasons. Our body is 75% water.  It is a fact that if you think you are hungry you really are thirsty. We should drink half our body weight in ounces of water every day up to 100 ounces.  If you exercise add an additional 20 ounces. You can add lemon or lime.  Adding some lemon will jump start your detox so add some lemon to your water.  If you like cucumber water, peel half a cucumber, slice it and seed it and let it sit in a pitcher of water overnight.
  • Sea Salt Protocol.  Incorporate this when you drink your water to help you with energy, keep hunger at bay, help with headaches, muscle cramps, aid in sleep, strengthen your bones.  Take a pinch of fine sea salt or kosher salt and put it on the tip of your tongue.  Roll your tongue against the roof of your mouth to dissolve it and drink back a glass of water.  Because these two types of salts are not iodized they benefit you not harm you. The optimal amount is ½ tsp. per day.  Just get some in you and don’t worry if you don’t consume the entire ½ tsp.
  • Set your cell phone timer for every 90 minutes and when it goes off drink 10 ounces of water and follow the sea salt protocol. Even if you can’t drink the water at that time you are training your brain to drink water. It’s about progress not perfection.
  • If you head to the bathroom 20 minutes after drinking water than you are severely dehydrated.  It will take about a week to get your body hydrated.
  • To prevent you from disturbing your sleep at night stop drinking water 2 hours before bedtime.
  • Start now by cutting out carbohydrates and sugar.
  • This is not a diet but a program that you incorporate into your life that will help you build your immune system and flood your body with nutrition. You will notice you are sleeping better, have clearer thinking, clearer complexion, more energy, stronger hair and nails, just to name a few benefits.
  • Artificial sugars are a proven carcinogenic and actually trigger the brain to eat more. They do much more harm than good. Stay away from all diet drinks and colored flavored waters.
  • Think nutrition, not calories.  The body runs on nutrition, not calories.
  • Refrain from eating any processed foods.  This includes frozen pre-made meals, including Weight Watchers, etc.  These types of foods are loaded with chemicals and have no nutritional value at all.  In the long run they are far more expensive as well so stay away from them.
  • If you are going to eat a salad make it the size of a dinner plate and load up with veggies and protein such as fish, grilled chicken,  hard boiled egg, beef, and some good fat such as avocado, hearts of palm etc.
  • At your meal load up on veggies with the exception of carrots, peas and corn as they have a high sugar content.  You can enjoy them after your first 11 days but in moderation.
  • Get some RAW UNSALTED almonds and eat a few in between meals.  They are very good at lowering your cholesterol as well as keeping you satisfied.  They are also a good fat.
