Sometimes you just need to give your body a reset. Check out some of our tips below on our favorite ways to hit the reset button!
THINGS TO PRACTICE:
1. Intermittent Fasting. Try starting this week with a 24-48 hour fast to give your body a jump start. Fasting can help jump start cellular repair helping fight against disease processes. It can lower insulin resistance seen in pre-diabetes. Fasting can also give weight lost a jump start if that is your goal. Drink plenty of water and other clear liquids during your fast. For the most pure version of fasting, you can drink herbal teas for your caffeine fix rather than coffee. But if you are like me, a cup of coffee is tough to sacrifice and you can make a pour-over or french press style coffee with organic beans to avoid as many impurities as possible.
2. Antioxidants. With all of the metabolic processes going on in your body, it creates a lot of free radicals. Free radicals do do all kinds of cellular damage and have also been linked to disease. Do your best to keep your antioxidant foods high to help neutralize free radicals in your system. Check out our favorite list of antioxidant foods below.
- Acai berries
- Goji berries
- Red cabbage
- Dark chocolate
