Don’t just make resolutions, achieve them

Welcome to 2019! Are you one of the many Americans who make New Year’s resolutions? Are you successful at achieving them? Research says that more than 50% of people who make New Year’s resolutions generally keep them for the first two weeks, but by the end of the first month that number declines and at six months many people have completely abandoned those resolutions.

Any guesses as to what the number-one New Year’s resolution was in 2018? Losing weight topped the list. How many of you agree and even have it on the top of your resolution list for 2019? I know it has frequently topped my list. Do you wonder how and if you can succeed with your resolution? You can, and I’ll explain.

Dieting versus healthy eating

Losing weight can feel like a never-ending cycle. Sometimes it seems like you try every “diet” plan and workout on the market, but they turn out to be failures. There is a difference between healthy eating and dieting. Dieting makes you hungry. Diets are temporary and often unrealistic.

A philosophy of ours at PURE, called Cleanse, Balance, Build, Focus, teaches that when you give the body what it needs, it will be able to do what it was created to do. In other words, if you feed your body health and wellness, it will provide health and wellness in return. If you feed the body garbage, well, that’s what will come out.

Cleanse, Balance, Build and Focus with CORE4

Begin with a strong foundation. The products in CORE4 help set the stage for optimal wellness. Start by cleansing your body of internal and environmental toxins. Next balance your mood and stress levels. Then, build key nutrients and provide focus and mental well-being.

  • Cleanse your body with HealthTrim® Cleanse. Our world is swarming with toxins. They are in the air we breathe, the water we drink, and the food we eat. And, they’re not just physical. We have mental toxins, too. Check out PURE’s Detox Program below.
  • Balance your body with GoYin. Every system in the body strives to maintain status quo. When something is out of balance, our bodies will do what’s necessary to get that balance back. This isn’t just about physical balance, but emotional, mental and spiritual balance, too.
  • Build your body with Daily Build. We must provide our body with the basic nutrients needed to be strong and healthy. Also, one size NEVER fits all. You must find and give your body what it needs to be healthy.
  • Focus with ENERGY. You are doing this for you; not for someone else. You must get healthy for you, and you can do this when you focus.

PURE Detox Program

A way to jump-start the cleanse/detoxification process is to start with the Detox program and then you go into CORE4. Or, if you started with the CORE4 and you are ready to take your detoxing a step further then we recommend participating in PURE’s Detox program. Successful weight loss consists of healthy eating and regular physical activity.

The scoop on poop

Are you regular or do you suffer from occasional constipation?  Doctors often say that we all have different schedules. We may eliminate a number of times per week, or, on the contrary, eliminate once or twice per week. Is one healthier than the other?

If you look to nature, you’ll notice that animals poop shortly after they eat. Americans tend to be constipated. The biggest reason is that our diet is highly processed and lacking of fiber needed for healthy bowel function. Consequently, the healthy “two to three bowel movements per day” is significantly dwindled to once or twice a week, or even less frequent than that.

Does it matter how frequently you poop? 

To answer this question, think of a toilet. If everyone used the toilet but didn’t flush it, bacteria would form and it would become an unhealthy environment. Additionally, the toilet would be so full, that it may get clogged. So what do you think happens to your body when you fail to properly eliminate your waste? The colon builds up toxins that eventually cause the body to break down.

In order to maintain healthy bowel function you need to: 1) eat a proper diet, 2) drink plenty of water, 3) get adequate exercise, and 4) maintain healthy stress levels.

Eat a proper diet

That includes fiber! High-fiber diets help with digestion. Whole, fresh fruits and vegetables; plant-based proteins like nuts and seeds, and whole grains like brown rice, quinoa, amaranth, millet, and oats contain fiber. Soda, sugar, baked goods, fast food and processed foods do not.

Women need 25 grams of fiber per day, and men need 38 grams per day, according to the Institute of Medicine. Our 360 Complete Shake contains 11g of dietary fiber. Half an ounce of Mila contains a hefty 5.5 grams of fiber, important for supporting digestion, promoting weight loss and helping prevent constipation. Additionally, Probiotic has been shown to promote gut health.

Drink plenty of water

Water helps hydrate the body, including the digestive tract. Dehydration is a common culprit for constipation. Sixty percent1 of your body is made up of water. It’s essential for maintaining life-sustaining reactions. It carries nutrients, oxygen, and waste products throughout the body.

Exercise regularly

Your digestive tract is one long muscular tube from your mouth, all the way down to your anus.  When you exercise, you tone ALL muscles in your body, including your digestive tract.  Exercising also helps stimulate peristalsis, which is the contraction of the muscle tissue in the intestines.

Maintain healthy stress levels

Stress in any form may impede the body’s ability to eliminate waste.  When the body tenses up, it is unable to flow and perform optimally. Look for ways you can mitigate your stress throughout the day. Adopt a breathing technique, take a walk, do a five-minute meditation.  In the evening before bed try taking a warm bath. Getting healthy sleep at night will help you better manage stress during the day and maintain your body’s natural schedule.

Provide gentle relief with HealthTrim® Cleanse

Our HealthTrim Cleanse (liquid and capsule) products contain an all-natural, proprietary blend of herbs and botanicals formulated for the purpose of providing gentle relief of occasional constipation.* The primary ingredient in this product is cascara sagrada. Based on anecdotal reports, cascara as ingredient alone can produce a bowel movement within 6-8 hours, but it may not occur for 24 hours after administration.  Learn more about HealthTrim Cleanse.

Creating healthy bowel habits takes time.  Be patient with the process; but also be consistent.  For example, even if you do not have the urge to eliminate first thing in the morning, sit on the toilet for three to five minutes anyway. Create the space for your body to do what it is naturally designed to do, and it will likely follow suit. Developing healthy bowel activity may help you maintain better health and well-being.
