How to Detox For Fat Loss Without Going Hungry

detox for fat loss

The idea of detoxing might scare the shizzle out of you, especially when you consider that many detoxes literally keep you on the toilet all day. Besides this, detoxing can be downright uncomfortable as you may feel starved while drinking some chalky shake or weird 50-calorie meal that tastes like hyena giblets.

Although detoxing does require you to be without some of your favorite foods for a short time, there’s a better way to go about it. You don’t need to feel robbed, starved, miserable throughout your detox.

The safe, gentle and sensible method for how to detox for fat loss will help you to:  

  • Lose weight
  • Gain control over cravings
  • Reduce abdominal bloat
  • Avoid water booty (aka, detox diarrhea)
  • Keep you satiated instead of starving
  • Achieve higher level of discipline with eating habits for long term fitness success.

Weekend Newsflash: Food Shame at School, It Happened To My kid. Plus, Body Transformation Inspiration.

FOOD SHAME. MY DAUGHTER WAS THE TARGET.

food shame

Just look at her. Gracie (aka, Greedy Baby) is growing up fast. We took this pic after one of her All Star cheer competitions. I am instilling into the child that she is an athlete and must be certain to make good food choices. Little did I know, she actually listened to my guidance and began buying salads for lunch everyday, and encouraged her friend to do the same.

Gracie was the target of food shame because of salad. Some of her Kindergarten classmates teased her for choosing salads at lunchtime. Apparently it’s a “stupid and disgusting” meal, according to her peers.  Good thing she doesn’t cave to pressure.

Her reaction? “Mommy, the kids at school don’t understand that I’m an athlete. I’m going to keep buying my salads”.

I’m so proud of this little bug. She also eats salad and a healthy a protein after each practice. It’s what she asks for.

Ps. Greedy Baby now has her very own website called GracieGlitter.com I’m still in the process of making her blog extra fab, but the site is live. This is Gracie’s space to blog and share the fun things happening in her life. If you have young daughters who you think might enjoy Gracie’s blog, go on and check it out!

BODY TRANSFORMATION INSPIRATION

I came across this pic on the interwebs. This chick has done a fantastic job at transforming her body. Be inspired, my friends. Be inspired into action.

Knockoff! Olive Garden Chicken and Gnocchi Soup Recipe

olive garden chicken gnocchi soup

This is a real belly-pleaser. I promise. It only takes about 30 minutes to make a large pot that serves about 7-8 hungry beasts.

I’m just gonna go ahead and say it — my version of Olive Garden Chicken and Gnocchi Soup Recipe is better than going to the restaurant to grab a bowl. This is the my 4th winter of cooking up this bowl of deliciousness, and the whole family loves it. My adaption is “souped-up” by the addition of more thyme and the introduction of rosemary to the recipe.

GATHER YOUR INGREDIENTS

  • 6 cups chicken stock, or use Herb Ox bullion packets to create the broth — no MSG!
  • 3 cups light cream
  • 4 cooked chicken breasts, cubed or pulled into small pieces. I boiled my breasts in broth. Just sayin’.
  • 1 to 1.5 packages gnocchi (in the pasta aisle)
  • 1.5 cups raw spinach
  • 4-5 dashes of thyme
  • 1 tsp. rosemary
  • sprinklings of pepper

NOW LET’S GET ‘TA COOKING!

  1. Prepare cooked breasts and set aside. If you boiled your breasts, you may be able to use some of the left over broth for the soup.
  2. Add broth and light cream to large pot.
  3. Slowly add thyme, rosemary and pepper to taste. If using dried rosemary, smash it into smaller pieces with your fingers before throwing into the pot. Allow spices to marinate with a slow simmer for approx 15 minutes.
  4. Adjust the texture of the soup by adding more broth or cream depending on desired consistency. Broth will make it lighter, cream will make it thicker.
  5. Add gnocchi and continue cooking for approximately 10 minutes. You can opt for the mini gnocchi I used, as pictured, or use the standard size gnocchi.
  6. While the gnocchi cooks, cut fresh spinach into small pieces and add to the pot.
  7. Add your cooked chicken to the pot last.
  8. Now SLURP

There was actually an argument in my house about who was going to get the last bowl. If you desire increased arguments and soup-factions to rise up in your home, go ahead and make this soup immediately.
