Detox Done Right!
I’ve talked to my clients many times about detoxification. (I was just talking to some of them about that today actually!) If you want to lose fat you will have to detoxify and if you are detoxifying you are probably losing fat as that is where toxins are readily stored. My one client Dave, the class clown, says, “sweat is fat crying”. Well, I can’t really back that with science. But sweating is a good way to detox because of the toxins released. On a side note, shower – or at least rinse off – after, as your skin can re-absorb some of these toxins.
Ironically, yesterday’s blog post from Charles Poliquin was about sweating and detox so I thought I would share it.
Here is the first paragraph:
Train hard and make sure you do some serious sweating to detoxify the body and prevent disease. Research shows that people who perform regular intense exercise detoxify more heavy metals through a variety of mechanisms than the less active population, and sweating is one of the best ways to regularly remove toxins.
Recent media reports have incorrectly suggested that helping the body to detoxify is not necessary, and that sweating won’t remove toxins. They’re wrong. The bad news is that everyone must support the body’s natural detoxification by any reasonable means because we are constantly and overwhelmingly exposed to heavy metals, petrochemical toxins, and pollutants that mimic hormones. The good news is that if you eat right, train hard, and make sure you sweat regularly, you can significantly improve the detox process.
