What to do if you get some unwanted side effects

or your body starts to detox on the program?

Depending on your current levels on fitness and health your body can experience a wide range of effects when starting any new nutrition and exercise program.

Some of the positive results are fat loss, increased energy, better sleep and overall happiness. If you stick with the program long enough these are the results that stick with you and the reason why so many of our community members make our programs part of their lifestyles.

Others have experienced some less than desirable side effects when starting the program such as, intestinal discomfort, soreness, fatigue, insomnia and headaches. While these uncomfortable effect usually only last a few days and tend to decrease in intensity quickly we wanted to provide you with some tips that others have found useful in dealing with them.

Many of these negative results are because of your body going into detox. The program is flooding your body with so much good stuff that your body has to get rid of the toxins and other junk in your system. This is what causes the detox. The good news is that while uncomfortable it means your body is beginning to heal and is moving towards a more healthy and positive state. It also shows that the bad feelings will not last.

Here are some tips that will help you speed up this process and will minimize these symptoms:

  1. Increase your water intake to avoid dehydration
  2.  Switch out the broccoli for another vegetable on the approved list for a day or two
  3. Try skipping the coffee for a couple days and see if that helps
  4. Chamomile tea or fresh ginger will help calm unsettled stomachs.
  5. Take a hot bath with Epsom salts (1 cup) to draw out any toxins
  6. Make sure to stretch before and after your workouts and try using a foam roller to help remove lactic acid stored in your muscles.
  7. Breathe. Practice deep breathes. Try to breathe in through your nose for a count of 4. Have the breathe start low in your body image it going into your lower stomach and not your chest. Hold for a count of 4. Then slowly exhale through your mouth for a count of 4. Do this for 2-4 minutes every day. This can also help with feelings of sleeplessness.
  8. Try not to stress. Don’t worry too much about the program. You don’t have to get everything exactly right. The key to any system is consistency. So do your best to just stick with it and you will start to see results quickly.

    If this does not work and if the issue continues you may want to see your doctor to make sure nothing else is going on.
