How to Improve and Slow Stomach Digestion to Increase Fat Burning
There are several natural ways you can improve stomach digestion, which will have the added benefit of weight loss. Many people are struggling to reach their ideal weight. Most have only temporary success and eventually end up with more weight than they started their diet. The problem is that many of the foods eaten in the western diet will continually decrease the bodies ability to efficiently burn fat. A diet high in hydrogenated fats and oils, refined white sugar and white flour, diet food products, and exposure to any of the 14,000 food chemicals within American processed foods and medications and low fiber intake all lead to a sluggish and inefficient fat burning system. The good news is that it is possible with change of diet to eventually restore the body to maximum fat burning capability.
There are numerous substances today that do not help stomach digestion. The food additives, alcohol, caffeine, herbicides, pesticides, and household chemicals all have something in common. Each must be made harmless by the body’s detoxification system in order for you to stay lean and healthy. The thousands of toxins that overwhelm our detoxification system also increase our susceptibility to disease and slow metabolism. So these toxins not only make us sick, they may also make us fat!
Researchers from the Occupational and Environmental Health Research Group at Stirling University in Scotland developed a hypothesis saying there is evidence indicating that the body’s metabolism does not function properly in those suffering from obesity. Researchers went on to say that the current level of human exposure to synthetic organic and inorganic chemicals might be responsible for damaging many of the body’s natural weight-control mechanisms.
Other research conducted by Dr. Theo Colborn at the University of Florida in Gainesville has revealed a direct correlation between environmental chemicals and their adverse effects on our hormonal systems. Many chemicals have a xenoestrogenic effect due to their estrogen-mimicking activity inside the body. These chemicals can easily create an enhanced environment for our bodies to store fat, all the while making it difficult to lose it.
The liver is our greatest fat burning organ as long as it is running at maximum capacity and isn’t overloaded with toxins. Research published in the International Journal of Obesity indicates that liver toxicity can often lead to excess body fat accumulation. Moderately obese people frequently suffer from liver dysfunction.
Cleansing your body will help restore the body's balance, eliminate the waste building up and make our systems run much more efficiently. During autopsies, coroners often find colons that are more than 75% clogged with waste matter. The walls of the colon are intended to absorb nutrients but low fiber, high fat, high sugar foods create a build up on the colon walls inhibiting proper nutrient absorption resulting in weight gain. This causes the systems that clean our blood and intestinal tracts to back up. Symptoms of fatigue and irritability begin to develop. Health issues often follow.
Cleaning the colon and the liver often completely relieves these clogs and allows your body to return to optimum functioning. Nutrients are used efficiently and you may find that the detox program has such powerful results that you simply do not crave sugar and fried foods any more. You may also find that you feel so good after detoxifying that you are motivated to eat more carefully. Benefits of detoxification include efficient stomach digestion, increased energy, better quality sleep, healthier bowel movements (eliminates constipation problems), improved look and strength of hair, skin, and nails, elimination of fatty wastes, mucus, and other toxic build-ups, decreased cholesterol and an overall feeling of improved health and well being.
Losing weight is more difficult than ever because of the toxic build up in our systems. The body can not work efficiently to eliminate fat due to toxins interfering with metobolic functions. Juice fasting or cleansing with herbal formulations are two healthy and natural way to eliminate these toxins and improve stomach digestion.
