Lazy version of the Cold Water Thermogenesis Protocol
Do you know what those big words mean to your lazy desire to get healthier? Ultimately, they mean that if you expose yourself to cold water, like swimmers do, you burn fat at a highly accelerated rate. I first learned about it from Jack Kruse, MD and you will have to trust me that his blog is intensely thorough and you will have to feel very motivated to read it all! It has also become a popular topic with biohackers like Tim Feriss and in the paleo world.
If you want the lazy version it requires that you stick your face in a bowl of ice water for approximately 10 minutes every day. You need to start slowly (maybe with 1 minute) and work your way up to 10 minutes. Never keep your face in water when it hurts or feels uncomfortable, you adapt to the cold over time and that's what causes you to burn more fat. If you want to further this practice- and it does get way more intense, make sure you do a lot of reading and talk with your doctor before doing a full body cold bath.
Drinking ice water does help also, you do have to raise the temperature of the liquid to your body temp and that burns calories, approximately 70 per day.
Cranberry lemonade detox water challenge
I just LOVE this fat burning drink, its amazing at cleaning out the toxins and keeping you hydrated, you can really feel all your systems working better and it keeps you full. Sometimes I mix it with Newport Skinny Tea!
Cranberry lemonade recipe:
- Glass gallon jar
- Safe, clean, spring water
- 1 cup of organic 100% cranberry juice, not from concentrate
- 3 organic fresh lemons
- A citrus juicer
- Liquid stevia
- Liquid cayenne
Fill the jar to about 85% capacity with spring water. Squeeze the lemons and pour the juice into the water. Add cranberry juice. Add stevia to taste and then add cayenne to taste. The amount of cayenne used is up to you, but the more the better.
If you don't have access to a good spring water source, use other clean drinking water that does not have fluoride. If you don't have access to organic lemons, use conventional. If there are no fresh lemons, use bottle lemon juice. If you can't get cranberry juice that is not from concentrate, get the reconstituted kind (just don't get any kind of cranberry juice that has any other ingredients like sweeteners or other juices). If you can't stand cayenne, don't use it. No glass jar? Use plastic. No excuses.
If you have powdered cayenne and/or powdered stevia, I recommend using a blender to mix some of the liquid with the powders so they don't settle later.
Here's a new challenge: the one gallon challenge. Drink a gallon of cranberry lemonade a day, sweetened with stevia, and spiced with cayenne. This is one of the best ways to detoxify, lose weight, and clean out your system. It's also a much better choice for most people than The Master Cleanse
Drinking a gallon of water a day makes an amazing difference to your health and your appearance (google gallon a day water before and after). Drinking this much fluid flushes the organs and the lymph nodes, hydrates the skin, and helps the body to rebuild cells and regenerate in ways that most people do not get to experience. The cranberry and the lemon help flush the liver and the kidneys even more, and in my experience it's a lot easier to drink a gallon of cranberry lemonade than it is to drink a gallon of plain water. And cayenne has a ton of amazing health benefits.
Please use common sense with this. If you do not follow a healthy diet with lots of produce, the amount of liquid consumed on this regimen can deplete the body of much needed minerals. Do not attempt to drink a gallon of anything in one sitting, EVER. This has been known to kill people, even with just water. If you have kidney problems, this may be the best thing for you. On the other hand, depending on your health issues, it may overload the kidneys. I find that smaller people who weigh less than 120 pounds can see the benefits at 1/2 to 1/3 of a gallon. Your health is in your hands. Again, please use good judgment and ALWAYS check with your doctor before making changes to your medication or doctor prescribed routine.
Tea + Detox Program = Teatox
A traditional detox program is not necessarily a weight loss program, but often weight loss is a result of following a detox diet, especially when using beneficial herbs along with the diet. A Newport Skinny Tea teatox is for a specific period of time during which herbs are used in a tea form for retraining our digestive systems to release excess water and waste materials and to deeply nourish tissues. The use of tea makes sticking to your diet far easier for several reasons discussed later.
Some of the more powerful detoxifying herbs in Newport Skinny Tea are: Cinnamon bark, Dandelion Leaf, Ginger Root and Slippery Elm Bark.
Cinnamon Bark is used to warm and energize the body, promoting sweating and stimulating circulation. Ginger Root has many of these same properties and also calms the stomach and reduces nausea, which can occur during a detox. Ginger can also soothe a sore throat, reducing inflammation and it helps build hydrochloric acid in the body, which aids in digestion of plant matter and stopping candida overgrowth in the body.
Dandelion is a major general health-building tonic and a great source of potassium. Used to clean the liver, it reduces congestion and improves the flow of bile, both which benefit digestion, allowing nutrients to be more easily absorbed by the body and allowing greater energy to flow. In the kidneys, dandelion enhances the flow of urine, helping to remove fluid trapped in the tissues, reducing the appearance of cellulite.
Slippery Elm soothes the lining of the intestinal tract and aids in the expulsion of toxins by providing gentle laxative action.
Tea is an easy, effective way to curb hunger and give the body loads of great health benefits at the same time. Tea is very satisfying to our taste buds and helps break destructive snacking and compulsive eating patterns because it changes our habits. It only takes a couple of days to train yourself to reach for tea when you feel hungry instead of food and soon you’re craving it instead! Often we eat when we are actually thirsty, and reaching for tea allows us to rehydrate our bodies and retrain our hunger meters, as well.
It is a widely held myth that tea is dehydrating, it is actually large amounts of caffeine that are dehydrating, so feel free to reach for tea, hot or cold, whenever you want, limit your daily intake of Newport Skinny Tea to the recommended amount, 2 cups of the daytime tea and 1 cup of the evening tea. Use plain green, black or herbal teas at other times.
For thousands of years herbs have been used as healing agents, they are powerful and gentle at the same time. Treat herbs with the same respect that you would any drug or medicine, consulting your doctor to make sure they are safe for your individual needs.
Disclaimer: We cannot guarantee weight loss.
Everything you put into your body will have either a positive or negative affect on your overall physical appearance. This is especially true when it comes to what you drink each day. Most people who are watching what they eat will end up consuming more calories because of their daily beverage choice increase their sugar and calorie intake. They use sweet beverages to curb their food cravings and they don’t realize how many calories they are actually drinking each day.
Here are a few helpful tips on how to drink your way to a better body:
- Drink More Water
There are so many incredible benefits to drinking water. Water is essential for digestion, skincare, blood flow, and weight loss. It also helps to flush toxins from your body and increase your energy level, plus it will make you feel full. The best part about drinking more water is that it has no calories. That is why it can help you achieve the better body that you desire. Adding lemon to your water will help your liver digest fats.
- Newport Skinny Tea
One of the easiest and most effective ways to drink your way to a better body is Newport Skinny Tea, we call this a teatox, or detoxing fast with tea. It is jam-packed with powerful ingredients designed to inspire good metabolism. The lotus leaf in Newport Skinny Tea helps break down fat, the rose hip in it is a mild laxative and diuretic designed to flush out toxins, and it has ginseng in it for increased energy. It also has Kokum rind which improves digestion and supresses the enzymes that converts excess calories into body fat. Newport Skinny Tea has both a morning and an evening blend that will keep you feeling full and satisfied all day long.
- Avoiding Sugary Drinks
If you want a better body, you need to start by replacing any sugary drinks you usually drink with water. So many people mistake fruit juices for being healthy choices. It is only good for you if it is 100% natural fruit juice with no added sugar.
- Limit Alcohol Consumption
There is nothing wrong with a glass or two of wine each week, but it should not be a regular occurrence if your ultimate goal is to develop a better body. Like most fruit juices, alcohol is high in sugar. In one night of drinking, most people can easily consume an entire day’s worth of calories. Try to save alcohol for special occasions and keep it to only a couple of drinks per night.
- Real Fruit Shakes & Smoothies
A filling and rewarding snack that you should allow in your daily diet is thick and creamy fruit smoothies. They make the perfect breakfast and they will help ensure your body is getting all the nutrients and antioxidants it needs. Keeping your smoothie low sugar is wise.
Making the right drink choices can be very beneficial to your health and it will help you achieve a better body. Try to drink more water, drink Newport Skinny Tea twice a day, avoid sugary drinks, limit your alcohol consumption, and fill up on real fruit shakes and smoothies. You’ll notice a positive change in your body within the first few weeks.
