What factors interfere with our metabolism and how to lose weight better.
After a long winter, the desire to finally lose weight and feel the lightness of spring in our own bodies is particularly strong. Full of verve, many of us follow the common diet recommendations - like eating salad, raw vegetables and yoghurt - and still hardly lose any weight. Why is that? This question is the first step to understanding how our body works and what it needs to feel good. Our digestion, first and foremost the intestines, needs warm, valuable, balanced, regular food in order to function optimally. And with that, our problems are obvious. We often eat hasty, irregular, cold or industrially produced meals, making it difficult for our digestive system to work, slowing down our metabolism and making it almost impossible for us to lose weight. In addition, the foods we eat every day are low in minerals and vitamins. The reason lies in the soils that have been depleted by monocultures, which can provide fewer and fewer nutrients to the plants grown on them.
In addition, electrosmog and a stressful lifestyle - with nicotine, alcohol and too much sugar - rob us of minerals and vitamins. One of the greatest challenges of our time is therefore to still meet our nutrient needs sufficiently. Food supplements can help, but first our body has to be ready to absorb them in the first place. Because the path to a feel-good body with a healthy diet plan leads via a healthy gut and an active liver.
Healthy weight loss from the inside
Billions of bacteria - the intestinal flora - settle in our intestines. These microorganisms live in close symbiosis with us and perform valuable services for our health. Among other things, the intestinal flora is responsible for the metabolisation of food and thus for the optimal utilisation of nutrients. But if the digestive system is overloaded or even overloaded, the body can no longer achieve the necessary balance between absorption and release. Waste products accumulate in the intestines, in the connective tissue and in the subcutaneous fatty tissue, and there is also a backlog of unprocessed substances in the liver. Industrially produced, poorly chewed food with too much sugar is one of the main burdens on our intestines. Sugar feeds the "wrong" bacteria and fungi, which can lead to a shift in the intestinal environment. Cow's milk and wheat products cause slime and promote intolerances. Digestive disorders are joined by a constantly bloated belly and skin problems. And if the metabolism is disturbed in such a way, losing weight doesn't work either. It's high time to finally clear the air - with the help of a colon cleanse, the development of healthy intestinal flora and a change to food that not only tastes good, but also does us good holistically.

The following is our recommendation for healthy weight loss:
Phase 1: I clean up
Duration: 1 month
Let's imagine our body looks like after a big feast. Used dishes, leftovers and clutter everywhere. Time to tidy up thoroughly and clean up. To do this successfully, we follow the nutrition plan for phase 1 and support our body in cleaning with the right natural ingredients. We can do this with vigour, will and joy.
Purge 1 to 10 days
During the purge we leave out everything that is harmful to us, i.e. stimulants such as alcohol, nicotine and coffee. With plenty of water we flush out the waste products left behind by unhealthy convenience foods. By avoiding sugar, carbohydrates (e.g. bread, pasta) and fruit, we relieve the intestines.
CLEANSING Day 11 to 20 Now we can slightly defuse the rules from phase 1. From now on, cereals may be eaten every other day. Instead of wheat, we turn to buckwheat, millet and oats. In addition, regional fruits provide us with vitamins, minerals and fibre every two days.
HALTING from day 21 We continue to watch our diet. A little sugar and a little alcohol here and there are fine as long as it doesn't become too much. We only ever eat raw vegetables before 3pm so that we can tolerate them better. The rule of thumb is: regional, seasonal and organic.
Phase 2: I fill up my depots
Duration: 1 month
After the cleansing phase, our body is now ready for the intake of minerals and vitamins. We eat a varied diet and replenish our depots with the appropriate food supplements - our body is vitalised.
Phase 3: I enjoy my life
Duration: the rest of the year
Our body is now cleansed, the mineral and vitamin depots are replenished. We continue to pay attention to a balanced lifestyle and an adequate supply of magnesium and vitamin C. Now we can set our table fresh again, celebrate festivities and enjoy life in moderation.
