If you want to lose weight, detoxify.

We all know that if you want to lose weight you should eat less and exercise more. But overweight is caused by more than just too much food and too little exercise. A hidden enemy has crept upon us and has an adverse effect on our health and well-being. Our bodies are being poisoned by toxic substances present in our food and the environment Do you put on weight immediately after you lose it? Are you frequently tired? Do you suffer from bloating, mood swings or cellulite? Toxic substances trapped in your fat cells could be the cause for this. Detoxification could be the answer to your problems.


Recent research has shown that toxic substances present in our bodies are partly responsible for people gaining unwanted weight. Toxins are all around us and can become embedded in our fat cells making it difficult to lose weight. Certain foods expose us to toxins like

–         Heavy metals and PCBs

–         Plastics (from drinking from plastic bottles)

–         PAKs (from meat burned on a barbeque)

–         Dioxins (in certain oily fish)

–         Pesticides and herbicides

How can you get rid of toxins?

Detoxification is a process of eliminating toxic substances from your body so you can regain optimum health. This can be done by consuming fewer animal products and more plant products like vegetables, fruit, green tea and seaweed. Periodic fasting also helps reduce weight and removes toxins stored in fat cells.

Don’t forget to exercise and sweat

It is important to exercise while detoxing. If you don’t, the toxins that are eliminated from your fat cells just continue to circulate around your body and will be reabsorbed! You might lose weight initially but it will just come back on again. You need to exercise and, literally, sweat them out. This increases your chance of keeping the weight off.

Support your detox with extra greens

Support your detoxification process by adding extra green vegetables and seaweed to your diet. Research has shown that green vegetables protect cells from ageing and assist in eliminating toxins from our bodies. Chlorella and Spirulina are two types of seaweed noted for their detoxification qualities. Green tea also assists in the fat burning process.

Do you eat enough fruit and vegetables?

Even though we know how important it is to eat sufficient fruit and vegetables every day, it remains difficult to do it consistently.


Greens is a perfect supplement as it gives you your daily dose of fruit and veg in one go. All you need to do is add one spoon of Greens powder to a glass of water or your favourite smoothie and enjoy a delicious drink full of healthy nutrients like fruit, vegetables, antioxidants and polyphenols.
