One of the biggest areas of confusion when it comes to nutrition and weight loss relates to interpreting the symptoms and changes to the body following the start of a better nutritional program.
When you change you current eating habits, or begin a diet such as the Herbalife diet program, the food and nutrition coming into your body is a higher quality than what you have been used to. The body begins to discard the lower grade materials and tissues (toxins) in order to make room for the more nutritious materials. It will then use this to make new and healthier tissue. This is a detoxification process.
This process is commonly referred to as Detoxification. The body begins to “clean house”. As these toxins are being discarded and exit the body, you may experience a variety of symptoms depending on the level and type of toxins leaving the body. These symptoms may include:
- Flu-like feelings
- Frequent urination, etc.
Most people find these reactions tolerable and are encouraged to bear with them for the short term. Reactions become milder as the body adjusts. Continuing with the Herbalife diet and healthy nutritional shakes, drinking lots of water, and getting plenty of rest will help to make symptoms milder and terminate quicker. The benefit to going through this process is that your body is becoming younger and healthier as you get rid of the wastes and toxins. These toxins may ultimately cause your body pain, disease, and suffering.
Use this knowledge as an inspiration to push through any unpleasantness that may occur as you start your Herbalife diet program and know that incredible energy, weight control, and vibrant health are to follow! Many people never notice any symptoms at all. Aggrevating factors may include: smoking, alcohol consumption, poor dietary habits, prescription drug use, high stress, etc.
