During the holidays you are spoiled with all kinds of culinary delights and you have rested. All well and good. However there’s little energy and everything you want is to rest. But this is not the solution to feel better. On the contrary …

Heavy foods eaten during the holidays, combined with alcohol, sweets and physical inactivity are the main factors that kidnap you energy. Your body has the ability to eliminate toxins and substances which are not useful. The main organs responsible for these features are liver and kidney. But bombarding your body days in a row, with toxins and fat has the effect of overloading your system of purification.

Like I said, the body has its own “purification system” that manages to fix excessive amounts of fatty foods and alcohol. But because that system is overloaded can cause serious diseases of the kidneys, digestive system.

Saturated fats are among the main enemies of your health. Are generally found in animal food, they are harmful because it causes high levels of LDL cholesterol, a type of cholesterol to be submitted inside blood vessels while causing serious health problems. A diet high in fat and generally consist of hardly digestible foods can lead to the appearance of biliary colic.

The first step that we need to do is detoxification, of course, removing the harmful foods. You need to remove fatty meats, sausages, fried foods, sweets, pasta and alcohol.

Do not forget to drink two liters of water throughout the day! Try to drink plenty of water and avoid carbonated soda as possible. Even natural fruit juices, although are much healthier than soda should be avoided, are high in sugar.

Exercise is essential to stimulate the body’s detoxification. Physical activity stimulates blood circulation, eliminate toxins, because blood flow increases, the cells receive a greater amount of oxygen, which is essential for their regeneration. The lymph system also has an important role in this process, choose outdoor activities such as walking and jogging park, because you need as much oxygen. A massage, in conjunction with a balanced diet, exercise and a healthy diet can help to eliminate cellulite.

Seaweed helps to reduce cellulite and fat and at the same time, provides a detoxification, hydration, remineralization and toning. Algae contain hydrated, are rich in trace elements (iodine, Iron, magnesium, potassium, zinc, selenium), protein, vitamins and carbohydrates, all help to revitalize, toxins, collagen synthesis and neutralize free radicals.
