Every day we are exposed to various types of toxins through the environment, air, water, food that needs to be metabolized and eliminated so that they are not accumulated, causing overload and organic dysfunctions that can lead to the development of chronic degenerative diseases.
Our body performs the natural process of detoxification which purpose is to eliminate certain toxic substances (exogenous or endogenous). The two main organs that exert this mechanism are the liver (60%) and the intestine (20%), although it can occur in all cells of the body.
Toxins are called xenobiotics and come from:
- Food sources: food additives from industrialized products, agrochemicals, heavy metals (aluminium, mercury, lead, etc.)
- Environmental origin: plastics, utensils, pollution, cosmetics, medicines etc.
- Endogenous origin: metabolites from the cells that need to be eliminated.
In order for the detoxification process to take place effectively in the body, it is important to prefer foods and...
The first step that many take when they want to lose weight is to do exercises: running, gym or functional training.
I recommend the practice of exercises, mainly for the benefits already proven to our physical and mental health and also to prevent diseases.
The truth is that doing exercises will not help you lose weight, why?
Because the exercises will not be able to compensate for a bad diet. Here's an example: if you walk 30 minutes you burn 200Kcal, which represents only 4 cookies or 1 ice cream (Sunday).
It is totally disproportionate how many exercises you have to do to burn just a few more bites. You have to climb several floors of a building to burn off a few calories.
Collaborating with this, studies have already revealed that:
Also doing exercises greatly increases your hunger and if you do not know how to make the right food choices will eat a lot more...
With more than 10 years of experience helping thousands of people to lose weight, I decided to share here the 5 best tips for you to start losing weight now!

Choose to eat more real food instead of processed foods because they contain a lot of sugar, salt and hydrogenated fats that will add a lot more calories to your food.
The drinks are very caloric and only add empty calories and quickly turn into energy and are stored as fat, so drink water and stay well hydrated because our brain confuses thirst with hunger, so if we ingest enough water we will avoid eating too much.

The low carb diet has been gaining more and more adepts and this nutritional strategy for weight loss is based on a lower intake of carbohydrates and a higher intake of healthy fats and proteins, as well as being based on the ingestion of vegetables, fruits (type and amounts recommended), seeds and oilseeds.
The top 10 benefits of a low carb diet are:
The healthy fats and proteins present in greater amounts in the diet are responsible for giving a greater sense of satiety compared to the consumption of carbohydrates. And also because having a smaller amount of insulin being released into the bloodstream also there is a reduction in the feeling of hunger.
Insulin is the hormone responsible for storing body fat and preventing body fat from being used as a source of energy, so by having a lower release of insulin into the bloodstream, there is greater use of body fat as a source of energy.

What do you think about eating meat, just meat and still improve your productivity and mental clarity, boost your libido, and control your blood pressure? Well, that's what the followers of the carnivore diet believe in, and the basis of this diet is just meat, offal, and eggs (some include fish and cured cheese) and no vegetable or plant-based foods or any kind of supplement.
It is totally the opposite of the vegan diet. The carnivore diet is based on high protein and saturated fats and no carbohydrates, and there is no defined protocol for the number of proteins and fats to be ingested.
In some countries, people have migrated from the low carb and ketogenic diet to the carnivore diet, and one of the most famous adepts of this diet is Shawn Baker. In his profile on social media, he said that the diet is very easy because he does not need meal plans or counting calories. "I just have to think about how hungry I am and how many steaks I want to eat," he said.
Followers of this diet...
See a summary of my interview with Dr Aseem Malhotra - famous cardiologist and writer of The Pioppi Diet.
Here are the main points:
- People generally have misconceptions and distortions about eating, for example, believe that the consumption of saturated fat and cholesterol increase the risk of cardiovascular disease and death, which is a myth.
- The current diet of the majority of the population contains much more carbohydrate than is healthy for our body and this causes many problems.
- Dr Aseem reveals to us that medicine is not an exact science, and it is in constant advances and updates and we need to update ourselves.
- Dr Aseem Malhotra explains that current research and studies show that the consumption of saturated fats and cholesterol does not block your arteries.
- One of the biggest villains to increase the risk of cardiovascular disease is insulin resistance caused by excessive consumption of refined carbohydrates, sugars, and also influenced by a sedentary lifestyle,...
Non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (steatohepatitis) is the accumulation of fat in liver cells impairing liver function and is one of the most common forms of liver disease that is mainly related to increased obesity around the world. Approximately half of the cases can progress to more severe forms of the disease like liver cirrhosis and cancer.
The most common risk factors for non-alcoholic steatohepatitis are obesity, diabetes, carbohydrate-rich diet with rapid absorption and saturated fat, rapid weight loss, viral hepatitis, insulin resistance, elevated LDL cholesterol and triglycerides, high levels of estrogen, surgeries and sedentary lifestyle.
In mild cases of steatohepatitis, the disease is asymptomatic (it does not have symptoms), with slow and gradual evolution being the most common signs and symptoms pains, fatigue, weakness, loss of appetite and increase of the liver.
The good news is that it is reversible, and the best way to treat steatohepatitis is to...
