The Ultimate OMG Detox Guide to Becoming a Perfect 10 in 2010 (Part I)

Summer is a week away and the heat is on high already …toes painted in bright summer colors and tan time is long overdue. WELL…OhMyGosh Alternative Medicine & Aromatherapy Spa/Salon Formulations FINALLY wants to offer it’s OMG fans the Ultimate Detox Program. From calorie counting  daily meals to reestablishing your fitness momentum – we at OMG are not stopping there. Learn about the latest detox beauty products, kid mini detox and literature as well to assist you in this OMG experience. So what are you waiting for let’s get started.

First let’s give you the real 411 on what actually is detox and the purpose it serves to get you to be an OMG Perfect 10 in 2010. Chemicals in the foods we eat such as artificial coloring, artificial flavorings, preservatives, synthetic foods, genetically engineered foods, salt and sugar are only few of the chemicals we ingest each day through the foods we eat. Our bodies do not digest or eliminate these chemicals, so they accumulate in our fluids and tissues resulting in feeling less active leading to low immunity (colds/flu).**Some think this is signs of old age WHEN ACTUALLY THIS IS TOXIFICATION. To further understand this process observe the figure below.


OMG DETOX DEFINITION: Elimination of unwanted waste and cleansing your temple to allow good bacteria/nutrients to be consumed through healing, nourishment and rejuvenation.  As well as natural, ongoing process of neutralizing and eliminating potentially harmful compounds (called toxins) from the body. Detox has been considered as a way for natural anti-aging, weight loss, and cancer treatment. Strong healthy cells produce a strong healthy body and key lies in the foods you put in your mouth, the thoughts you put in you head, and the feelings you place in you heart. If you want to be that Perfect 10 all around it starts with every spoonful of food you  bring to your mouth. So food portion and the amount of nutrients you receive on a daily basis definitely is a great place to start.

The body’s need for nutrition always reflects the level of cell destruction occurring in the body. This is of the utmost importance, for if we have the option of choosing to eat foods that stop premature cell destruction, we can make this our goal. If there is no premature cell destruction, there is no aging. Carbs, unsaturated fats, protein, sugar and more…puts everyone in overload as to whats good, the bad and the ugly. OMG has a couple of tips and recipes to help you out.

  • 5 STAR CHICK – If you are not overweight (5 lbs or less) but have a couple of curves to conquer try cutting down on the number of red meat and cheese portions you consume daily/White carbs can be swapped for whole-grain bread and gluten free pasta
  • STAYING SLIM FOR HIM -If you are already a petite slimmy its still always great to continue to get a lot of your omega 3  and vital nutrition through plenty of fish and greens (OMG Summer Green Salad- recipe in next section)
  • SCULPTURE MONA LISA – If you ready to show off a super sculpted figure by the end of the summer cut out the salt, sugar and carbs/Try to start your day out with a shake (OMG Detox Smoothie) followed by a wheat tortilla with turkey, cheese and low fat mayo for lunch then chicken with green beans for dinner
