Saltwater Detox Flush
I have been doing sooo good on my goals since getting back from NC and having family in town. I put on 5 lbs, I was a little depressed about it, but then I researched a healthy liquid fast that can help me reset my gut, speed up my metabolism and gently cleanse/detox my kidneys, colon, and intestines.
Fasting has been a part of my lifestyle for almost 6 months. I typically use Intermittent Fasting, especially during 80 Day Obsession to reach my goals faster. My body works best with a smaller feasting window and a larger fasting window. When you are trying to lose weight efficiently, I highly suggest trying IF. Start small, 8 hr eating winds, 16 hr fasting. Did you know that "Breakfast" is for "breaking the fast" when you sleep your body is in a fasted state.
Saturday & Sunday, I am going to do this Saltwater Detox Flush. Curious about it? I recommend checking with your doctor before trying any detox, but this drink is basically an IV in a bag. This is an electrolyte water that is Gatorade minus the artificial color or sugar. It keeps you from feeling hungry.
Ingredients for 1 Bottle. If you do this for 48 hrs, you'll need to make 2 of these)
1- 1.5 L of Evian water (or any bottled water that has an alkaline level between 7-8)
1 tsp No Salt (Amazon, Walmart, most groceries have it)
1/2 tsp Red Mill's Baking Soda
1/2 tsp Pink Himalayan sea salt
2 TBSP Bragg's Apple Cider Vinegar (it's imperative that the bottle says it has the "Mother" in it- that is the good stuff!)
2 TBSP Santa Cruz Lemon Juice (optional)
Why the alkaline water?
Drinking alkaline water significantly helps in weight loss because fat storage is reduced.
Why the No Salt?
No Salt is made of Potassium Chloride. Potassium Chloride is essential in the function of the heart, muscles, kidneys, nerves, and digestive system.
Why the Red Mill's Baking Soda?
Baking soda in small doses is actually a kidney cleanser. It detoxifies the kidney. You may have heard of it as a treatment for UTI's too, it's the same concept.
Why Himalayan Pink Salt?
Pink Himalayan sea salt contains over 84 minerals and trace elements, including calcium, magnesium, potassium, copper and iron. It helps toxins release from the body.
Why Apple Cider Vinegar?
Antibacterial, gut-cleansing, immune system boosting, I mean I could be here all day telling you the benefits of ACV. Your tummy, your skin, your blood all benefit from ACV, it's important that you buy a brand that says "the Mother is inside". I know that sounds weird, but the mother contains strains of proteins, enzymes and good bacteria that most health benefits come from. What are these benefits?
Regulates Blood Sugar Levels.
Enhances Weight Loss.
Improves Skin Health.
Reduces Blood Pressure.
Relieves Symptoms of Acid Reflux.
Boosts Gut Health
Why Lemon Juice?
I use Santa Cruz 100% Organic Lemon Juice because I love my Saltwater to taste like lemonade. Lemon juice aids in digestion, promotes hydration, and supports weight loss.
