Detox Supplements to Lose Your Bloat | Project 8 – Phase 1

CONGRATULATIONS

You have taken an important step to take control of your health and transform your body. You’re going, to begin with, a 7-day detox. Detoxing is like giving your body a proper oil change. Imagine getting an oil change for your car, but not changing the oil filter. So no matter what type of new oil you add, all of it will be processed through a dirty filter. It’s the same with your body.

Eating healthy foods without detoxing is like getting an oil change without changing your filter. By detoxing, you will clean your body’s filters so it can become a well-oiled machine!

During this phase, you will also learn the importance of “Eating in 3s”— eating a combination of protein, fat, and carbs every 3 hours. We call it “PFC Every 3.” This balanced approach to nutrition will be a key to your success. Now it’s time for you to rock it! In 7 days you will feel better and have more energy. And the progress you make during this phase will fuel the rest of your transformation!

Your DETOX Phase is designed to cleanse your body and help you lose your bloat. Extend your DETOX Phase to 14 days (instead of 7) if one or more of these describes you:

• You have 50 lbs. or more to lose.
• You drink alcoholic beverages 3+ times per week.
• You are a smoker.

1) BEGIN CUTTING FOODS THAT CAUSE BLOATING

Foods and Drinks that cause water retention and bloating:

• Gluten
• Soy
• Cheese & Yogurt
• Refined Sugar
• Sugar Sweeteners (besides Stevia)
• Salt
• Grains (just for DETOX)
• Soda (diet & regular)
• Alcohol (1)
• Coffee & Tea (2)
• Also cut exercise (just for DETOX Phase) (3)

(1) Remove alcohol in DETOX & IGNITE Phases.

(2) If you experience headaches, you can have one cup of coffee or tea in the
morning. Decaffeinated herbal tea is fine.

(3) Exercise can cause inflammation. Your goal in Phase 1 (DETOX)
is to clean your body and flush your system by removing as much
inflammation as possible. This is best accomplished by NOT exercising in
the 7-day DETOX Phase. Low impact cardio, like walking, is okay.

GUIDELINES TO OPTIMIZE YOUR PORTION SIZES

• Let go of the calorie mindset. Simply follow the portion sizes and the meal plan designed for your gender.

• You can measure your portion sizes by weight or with your hands (palm, fist, and thumb). Do whatever is easiest and most convenient.

• Make sure you’re hungry (ready to eat but never starving) before each meal and satisfied (never full) after. If you’re hungry before 3 hours, simply eat a balanced meal before the 3-hour mark.

• If you measure food with a scale, always measure it precooked since the weight will be lost during cooking. If you measure portion sizes with your hands, always measure after it’s cooked (only applies to cooked food).

GUIDELINES TO OPTIMIZE YOUR RESULTS

• You will be eating in threes: eating every 3 hours with a balance of protein, fat, and carbs.

• Eat your first meal within an hour of waking and your last meal within an hour of bedtime.

• If you fall off your IGNITE or THRIVE plan for more than 3 days, you can reboot your plan by simply repeating this 7-day DETOX Phase.

• If you prefer a shake for breakfast, simply switch your breakfast and midmorning meals.

• Add a sixth meal if you’re still hungry after dinner: have a shake or a meal with protein + carb + fat.
