2015 New Years Detox Program
Our bodies naturally detoxify everyday as part of normal body functioning. Detoxification is one of the body’s most basic automatic functions of eliminating and neutralizing toxins through the colon, liver, kidneys, lungs, lymph and skin. Unfortunately just by living in a modern world we are exposed to toxins in our environment, ingest toxins in our food supply, and drink toxins in our water. Our bodies have a hard time keeping up. Even the best paleo diet can get out of balance changing our internal ecosystem. A detox program can also be the perfect accelerator to change your body composition to lose fat while maintaining lean muscle tissue, getting you in the best shape to excel in the Cross Fit Open this year or what ever you want to do.
Body systems and organs that were once capable of cleaning out unwanted substances can be over-loaded (especially during the holidays) to the point where toxic material remains inside our tissues. Our bodies try to protect us from dangerous substances by surrounding them with mucous and fat, and storing it away from vital organs. Lose the toxins – and you lose the fat and inflammation as they’re no longer needed. We will be following Paleo nutritional guidelines along with an option for strategic supplementation to accelerate and support the detoxification process.
Meetings will be Tuesdays at 6:30 at CrossFit San Ramon, based on the last two years participant that attend all the meetings have the most success, so please come to as many as you possibly can. It is possible to do the program without coming to the meetings but it is much harder to stay true to the program without the group support. Plus the recipes, snacks, and cooking demonstrations are most participants’ favorite parts.
Kick off – January 13 th
Week 1 –January 20th
Week 2 – January 27th
Week 3– February 3th
Wrap Up – February 10th
The program will focus on whole foods and sustainable lifestyle choices in addition to an option for strategic supplementation. You will be learning how optimally support your own health no matter which option you pick.
RX - $175.00 per person to cover the cost of the supplements and class materials. We will be using the highest quality natural supplements that support your body in the detoxification process at the base coast a physician would pay for them. Supplements used will be Lymph, Kidney, and Liver drainage drops from Apex Energetics, as well as a Detox Support Pack from Designs for Health. In addition we will be using Apex Energetics’ Fish Oil available from the gym.
The supplements are enough for two people so if you are signing up with someone you live with then, have one participant sign up for RX and one for Scaled.
Scaled – $75 per individual. This option is for people who are pregnant or have other reasons for completing the program with out supplementation (except fish oil) using only whole foods and teas to complete the process. We offer this option to people who have a solid understanding of nutrition and are disciplined enough to keep a very close eye on what they eat in what portions to insure the right nutrient mix. If that’s not you, pick the RX version above.
All classes will be taught by Sarah Pate who has a Master’s degree in Health Education, specializing in nutrition. The goal of the program is to not only optimize body composition and health, but to increase each individuals knowledge about what makes them thrive to create sustainable healthy eating practices.
So talk to anyone who has taken the class and sign up. What do you have to loose – toxins, inflammation, less than optimal cooking and eating practices, extra fat? What do you have to gain – energy, confidence, and performance in and out of the gym? Yeah 2015 is going to be a great year.
Deadline – You must register and pay Lori or Tim NO LATER THAN JANUARY 4th to hold your spot.
