Get Red Carpet Ready with Zoe Bingley-Pullin's 5 Day Alkalise Plan
14th OF March 2012
With all those gorgeous, lean actresses on the red carpet, it is little wonder Red Carpet Season is always inspiration for crash dieting! Nutrition expert Zoe Bingley-Pullin shares with RESCU the 5 Day Alkalise Plan, a surefire way to lose weight ahead of a big event without compromising our health!
With the red carpet season around the corner a quick and healthy way to get into that sexy dress is following an Alkalise Cleanse. Your body needs to be slightly alkaline to be at its healthiest. An acidic body means your systems do not work as efficiently as they should.
This cleanse will help to alkalise your system. Eating too much meat, alcohol, sugar, salt and caffeine all make your body's systems over-acid and also help to detoxify your system. The spinach has a mild laxative effect and will stimulate the liver, gall bladder and aid blood and lymph circulation. Drink approx. 500ml, warmed, daily during all stages of the cleanse.
Drink at least 6-8 glasses (approx. 300ml per glass) of fresh vegetable juice and vegetable broth throughout the day at 2 to 2½ hour intervals. Carrot, spinach, beetroot and cucumber juice are all suggested. Juices are useful in weight-loss programs because they are filling yet low in calories, high in water and nutrients. In addition, drink plenty of purified non-carbonated mineral water and herbal teas to ensure you are not dehydrated.
Continue to drink the juices, broth, water and teas, adding raw or cooked vegetables and fruits. Grape fruit is particularly recommended – like other citrus fruit it helps the digestive system breakdown fats. It also cleanses the urinary system and is a diuretic. Watermelon is probably the most potent diuretic amongst the fruits and can help with fluid retention.
In addition to the above introduce a serving of wholegrain bread (1 slice), beans (½ a cup), nuts and seeds (¼ a cup)
In addition to the above introduce a serving of fish (160g) (extra two day) DAY 5: in addition to the above introduce a serving of dairy products and/or a serving of lean chicken or lean red meant (150g)
