How A Supported Cleanse Day Can Get You Your Vigour Back!
By Sophie Parkes - The Body Advocate
Intermittent fasting (IF) is an eating pattern that cycles between periods of fasting and eating. It doesn’t really specify which foods you should eat but rather when you should eat them. Fasting normally is performed for a period of one or two days per week or month.
Previously the benefits of intermittent fasting weren’t really understood, but now with testing conducted on humans, multiple benefits of intermittent fasting have been studied and understood and are being encouraged.
While weight loss or weight maintenance is seen as a primary benefit of intermittent fasting, the practice has demonstrated efficacy for reducing abdominal, or visceral fat and promoting gut health.
Additionally, research has found that fasting can allow the body to go into something of a restorative mode. This is a process called ‘autophagy,’ which involves the recycling of old cells and is thought of as a cellular self-cleaning mechanism suggested to have benefits for overall health.
So, How Does Isagenix Tie In?
Isagenix has a proven system called ‘Cleanse Days’ which in conjunction with ‘Shake Days’ can support with weight loss, weight maintenance and even improving metabolic health. Cleanse Days are supported fasts, which don’t deprive you of food but allow your stomach to have a well-earned rest. With its range of botanical products, Isagenix offers solutions for the cravings and supports you through the day with Cleanse Day approved snacks.
No Juices, Laxatives, or Diuretics
A common concern about intermittent fasting programmes is the involvement of drastic starvation, the use of sugary juices, or ingredients that act as laxatives and diuretics. You’ll be pleased to hear that there are no laxatives or diuretics in Nourish for Life, an Isagenix drink that supports Cleanse Days.
With the right preparation and a little motivation (both to yourself and with the support of others), participants are often pleasantly surprised at how effortless Cleanse Days can be. After seeing and feeling the results in the form of consistent weight loss or management, you’ll never look back from adding Cleanse Days into your nutrition plan. I personally incorporate them quite regularly into my lifestyle and have never looked back!
