3 Reasons why you Could Have a Slow Metabolism. Boost it with my Tropical Mood-Boosting Smoothie
Let’s transform you and turn you loose on the red carpets of the world. Maybe your red carpet, like mine, is on the sidelines of your child’s soccer game. No matter where you are or what you are doing, it feels so good to put your best foot and best you forward. So what’s the source of your weight loss resistance? In most cases, weight loss stalls for one of these three reasons:
- The body is holding on to excess fluid - water and lymph - in an attempt to mitigate reactivity by diluting toxicity. The slowdown in the body’s natural systems of elimination causes a rise in acidity of the body’s tissues and systemic inflammation. This, in turn, causes excess subcutaneous fat accumulation, or cellulite, as the body seeks to find places to store the toxins that are building up.
- The gastrointestinal system isn’t working properly and is getting backed up. This also slows down another of the body’s natural toxin elimination systems, causing the accumulation of thick, heavy, resistant yellow fat, as the body looks for additional toxin storage facilities.
- The micronutrients in the food you are eating aren’t getting synthesized properly into the chemicals/hormones you need to keep your weight in check, causing aggressive accumulation of soft, fluffy, lumpy white fat, which takes on some of the characteristics of hormones and causes an even further hormonal imbalance in your system.
Use targeted micronutrients to incinerate weight loss roadblocks, flush out toxins and subcutaneous fat and repair and facilitate the proper synthesis of hormones to reshape lumps and bumps into gorgeous curves.
Tropical Mood-Boosting Smoothie
I-Burn | Serves: 1
1/4 cup pine nuts
1 lemon, peeled
1 cup water
1/2 grapefruit + the pith (that’s the white layer between the outer peel and the flesh of the fruit – you can scoop it with a spoon)
1/2 cup watermelon
Optional: a dash of cinnamon
Optional: birch xylitol or pure stevia, if you need more sweetness
MOOD-ELEVATING SMOOTHIE BOOST:
1 cup arugula
Arugula is a potent source of micronutrients. These leafy greens are rich in many vitamins, minerals, and phytochemicals that reduce inflammation and encourage detoxification, such as vitamins C, A, and E and the B vitamins; calcium, potassium, magnesium; a wide variety of anti-inflammatory flavonoids and carotenoids; and omega-3 fatty acids. The isothiocyanates in kale have demonstrated cellular detoxification action. Pop them into your Mood-Boosting Smoothie for anti-inflammatory boost.
Dry-blend the nuts. Add the lemon, water, ice, pink grapefruit + pith, watermelon, cucumber, and avocado. If you’re adding the Mood-Elevating Smoothie Boost, also add the arugula. Blend all the ingredients until smooth. If you need more flavor, you can add a sprinkle of cinnamon and/or a few drops of pure stevia or birch xylitol to taste.
