Chia Detox Shake

If you're in our D.TOXSM program you know shakes become a part of your day and finding a handful of go-to shake or smoothie recipes makes it so much easier to give up those non-D.TOX approved sweet treats! 

Here's a recipe that’s taste-tested and dietitian-approved. If you’re not in the D.TOX program, just substitute the MediClear™ and FiberMend® for a protein powder. I suggest our grass-fed whey protein. The strawberry cream is a great combo with the berries in this shake. I also like to add in Life Greens in the double chocolate flavor for an added nutrient and flavor kick. What’s your go-to add-ins for shakes and smoothies?

Why Gut Health Matters for Metabolism

What organ is the source of greater metabolic activity than the liver, supplies over 70% of the immune system, and consists of 10 times the number of cells than the whole rest of the body put together? The gut!

An amazing and surprising fact: 70% of Americans have digestive symptoms or disease, yet don’t think twice about its impact on their weight and health.

Gut health breaks down due to many factors in our lifestyles and environment. These factors can over-activate the immune system and ultimately cause internal havoc. Conditions such as migraines or chronic headaches, food or environmental allergies, autoimmune conditions like Hashimoto’s thyroiditis, psoriasis, chronic fatigue syndrome and celiac disease have all been shown to correlate with digestive dysfunction.

Today, we'll discuss the roles of the gut, what factors disrupt its functioning, and tips for improving gut health to ultimately enhance metabolism, weight management and overall health.

6 Reasons to Detox

Whether you want to jump-start your fat loss or detoxify from an indulgent holiday season, there are many reasons to seek out a safe and effective detoxification program.

Each day we’re exposed to a variety of toxins through the food we eat, the beverages we drink, the air we breathe and the products we use on our skin. How well we fare depends on how well our bodies can keep up with removing these substances.

By supporting our body's own natural processes with a well-balanced detoxification system, we improve our ability to function at our best and to maintain optimal health. Detox benefits are varied and significant. Let's look at the top six advantages detoxification can offer.

8 Uncommon Tips for Women’s Wellness

Women’s health is a complicated matter.

A woman’s well-being is impacted by an intricate balance of hormone systems such as adrenal, thyroid and sex hormones.

As women progress through the decades of life, hormones ebb and flow and can knock each other off track. This oftentimes makes attaining optimal health and weight loss more challenging as women age.

The good news is that we have significant influence over our hormones and genes by what we choose to do or not do in our lives. Many factors impact hormone balance such as nutrition, supplementation, exercise, stress management, sleep and living environment.

Learn how you can use these areas of influence to enhance your well-being!

How to Detox the Right Way

A Detox Diet, done the RIGHT way, can set in motion a 5-7 pound weight loss over just a 2-week period. If you don't need to lose weight, a Detox Diet can make you feel more energized AND improve your appearance.

This type of weight loss program is based on both hard science and real world success. LIFE TIME Fitness has now developed a FREE, online and telephonic program that teaches you the safe and effective way to do a Detox, as well as what to NEVER do during a Detox process - ever.  

This weight loss program also represents a quantum leap over traditional portion control diets, which we are all familiar with. This is because all calories are not created equal, and a Detox done the right way literally programs your body to burn fat - starting at breakfast each day.

Our next FREE program begins June 12th, but you can start the prep work TODAY. Just sign up below and you will be on your way to becoming a master Detoxer. And don't worry - this isn't a weird L.A. thing. In fact, it's so easy and practical you'll wish you'd started a Detox routine years ago!

If the idea of a Detox sounds appealing but you're not ready to sign up yet, check out the podcast below. You'll be able to listen to Coach Anika and Amber from the Life Time Weight Loss team share more about how the Life Time 14-day D.TOX℠ guides you on combining wholesome food with supportive detoxification supplements - whether you’re looking to lose weight, improve energy or reset nutritional habits.

What our past participants are saying:

Ernie T:

"We did have a point (during the 90 day challenge) where we felt like we might have hit a plateau and searched for something to help us overcome it. We found it in the Life Time D.Tox Program Kit. I again give credit to my wife for keeping us on the program but I’m glad she did because, IT WORKED! Initially it was hard to get through all the cravings but, after the program, I don’t hunger for junk food anymore and can take it or leave it. I would highly recommend anyone trying it in order to reset your body for nutrition and healthy eating habits. It was so simple to follow. The program included easy to prepare recipes like homemade hummus that were actually appetizing. My favorite was the chili. I think I could have eaten that every night and will be preparing it to entertain house guests in the future. I’m sure it will be a hit. "

Michael D:

"One resource I would be remiss in mentioning is the D.TOX program. It made a huge difference in helping me shed significant weight and body fat. I am a big fan and plan on repeating it every 6 months going forward. " 

Jennifer C:

"I figured I better cleanse my system of toxins, so I did the Life Time Fitness D.TOX. I heard stories of how hard it was but it honestly wasn’t. I felt that I was eating more than before and the smoothies are fantastic! The recipes were super easy and packed with flavor. The Morning Muesli is still my go to if I need a great breakfast, and Sweet Potato, Black Bean and Turkey Hash makes a recurring appearance in my dinner rotation."  

Nathan P:

"I was introduced to the D.Tox program by my trainer. I gave it a try……and it helped a lot. That program helped me learn what to eat, how much to eat and that healthy food can taste delicious. The D.Tox program helped jump start the weight loss by losing 7 pounds over 2 weeks time. 



The Healthy Way to Detox - Part 1

Spring can feel like the perfect time to start fresh with health goals.

In fact, it's a common time to read about detox regimens that kickstart those efforts.

Not every detoxification regimen, however, is safe or effective. It’s important to not only understand the benefits of detoxification but the ways an individual detox plan can support (or hinder) your body’s own detoxification efforts.

In this three part article series, we'll examine these issues and offer a guide that can help you make the best choices for your detoxification goals.
