Are organically grown foods really that important to buy? They are expensive.
Minimizing exposure to pesticides, insecticides, herbicides, and GMOs is the reason to buy organically grown food, especially when it comes to animal-based foods. They may be more expensive; however, the health effects from these toxins can be far more costly. Buy foods in season and from local farmers to keep the costs down. Making purchase decisions according to the annual “Dirty Dozen” and “Clean 15” from the Environmental Working Group (www. ewg.org) can help people make purchases more efficiently.
What are some of the hardest parts of doing Studio Detox?
You might experience mood swings, energy fluctuations, and intense cravings in the first few weeks. You may experience “carb flu” – you will feel sluggish and drained while your body tries to figure out how to perform without sugar. If you do experience these symptoms, it is due to a withdrawal of toxic foods and it will pass.
What do I do if I become constipated?
If you are consuming enough water on the program, your stools should remain soft and you should not struggle with regularity. However, if you experience constipation, magnesium citrate is safe to use to relieve this condition while on the program.
What can I take if I have a headache?
Taking over-the-counter medications formulated to address aches and pains will not impact your success on the program. Make sure you are drinking enough water. Dehydration can cause hunger and headaches.
Do I need assistance from my primary doctor?
If you are on prescription medications, it is strongly recommended that you maintain good communication with your primary care physician. The doses of your medication often need to be adjusted as you experience the benefits of the detox.
What are some tips to help me get through Studio Detox?
• Make sure your home and workspace are “program ready.” Clear your pantry of any junk, processed food, or anything not listed on your grocery shopping guide.
• Don’t focus on calories. Eating enough and at the right time is the most important aspect.
• Inform friends and family you are striving toward a healthier lifestyle so they can support and encourage you throughout your journey.
• Eat enough to be satiated. It’s better to eat too much good food than to get ravenously hungry from deprivation and then binge on off-program foods.
• Blend raw almonds and flax seeds together to put on a salad. This adds fiber, flavor, texture, and lots of good fats necessary for burning the fat stored in your body.
• Meal prep. Each week, plan your meals and have your groceries and meals ready to “grab and go” at the beginning of each week. This will ensure you avoid excuses to cheat.
Why can’t I have eggs?
Eggs are not allowed on the program because they are considered one of the top 5 food allergens.
Do you have to walk for 30 minutes every day in addition to the prescribed HIIT training?
Yes. In addition to HIIT, it is recommended and encouraged to walk for 30 minutes every day.
If I already have a workout regimen, do I need to decrease my workouts to 2-4 days a week, 20 minutes a day?
No, however, HIIT exercising is much more effective for muscle building and fat burning.
Why can’t I have Splenda, Equal, Sweet ‘n’ Low, or similar sweeteners on the program?
Part of the success of the program and your journey toward long-term health involves eliminating processed foods and artificial ingredients. Artificial sweeteners are a common contributor to a sluggish metabolism.
SweetLeaf stevia is the purest of the stevia sweeteners. Truvia, Purvia, and similar stevia products add other unnatural ingredients such as erythritol or dextrose to their formulation. SweetLeaf stevia is the only recommended sweetener on the program. Eating an apple or having a handful of fresh blueberries can help to quell sugar cravings.
What happens if I miss a dose of MedPax?
If you miss a dose of MedPax and it’s within the same day, take the missed dose with your next meal. If you realized you missed a dose from the previous day, do not double up.
How can this plan become even more personalized?
Detoxification requires energy. Calories are needed to fuel the pathways to move toxins through the system. Therefore, this detox is not limited to calories. However, a specific calorie level may be prescribed if there are other aspects that are being addressed, such as blood sugar concerns, guided weight loss, or improved body composition. Provided in this program is a formula to calculate your Basil Metabolic Rate (BMR), along with specific food guides for during the 28-day detox and after the detox.
