About the 14 Day Detox and Cleanse
Posted: Sep 11 2013GABBY AND LAIRD'S TRUITION DETOXIFICATION PHILOSOPHY
The harsh reality is that we live in an ever-increasingly toxic environment. Many of the toxins abundant today did not exist just a few years ago. As a result of living in today’s high-tech age, we are constantly exposed to pesticides, herbicides, and chemicals that enter our bodies through the food we eat, the water we drink and even the air we breathe. These toxins which we unconsciously ingest get trapped in our organs and tissues, which over time can negatively impact our health and contribute to the development of chronic disease.
Our 14-day detox and cleanse supports your body’s natural ability to remove toxins from the body and will also help jump-start your fitness program. Our 14-day detox is easy to follow, highly effective, and totally safe. In just two weeks you can completely put your health and fitness on a totally new path and be well on your way to a new and much healthier lifestyle.

Liver and Kidneys Provide a Two-Phase Detoxification Process
Our body utilizes a two-phase system in detoxifying harmful substances. Almost every day environmental and dietary toxins enter our body and are stored in our organs, tissues, and body fat. These unhealthy toxins enter the bloodstream where the liver transforms them into water soluble compounds. Our kidneys then further process these toxins, after which they are eliminated via the bladder and GI tract. Our TRUition 14-day detox nutrition supplement program and diet plan elevates this detoxifying process.
14-Day Detox & Cleanse Meal ScheduleThis 14-day detox and cleanse program generally consists of 2 meal replacement shakes per day (breakfast and dinner), plus one healthy meal.

ENERGY DRINKS OR SNACKS
Energy DrinksMost everyone on a detox & cleanse program will get a late afternoon decline in energy or food craving. This is usually the result of a dip in blood sugar after your lunch has been fully digested and the available calories have been used as fuel through the day. Once all available calories have been burned as fuel, your body will begin to convert fat to fuel, which overtime will cause weight loss and a visible reduction in body fat.
In order to offset a late afternoon decline in energy, mix one sachet of TRUition Energy in 8 to 12 ounces of water. In just 10 to 15 minutes you will feel a surge in energy and attention, which will be sustained for several hours. With only 15 calories per serving, TRUition Energy uses vitamin B, niacin and a small amount of caffeine to stimulate your metabolism; instead of sugar like most other energy drinks (you can drink up to two (2) TRUtion energy sachets per day as needed).
SNACKSIf you must eat between meals, you need to snack in moderation. Some of the suggested snacks you can eat are as follows:
Carb Energy Options (low calorie)
• Small sliced apple
• Cucumber slices (with salsa)
• Celery stick (with salsa)
• ½ sliced red pepper
• ½ cup strawberries
Protein, Carb & Healthy Fat Energy Options (medium calorie)
• Hardboiled egg
• Cucumber Slices with Hummus
• Sliced apple with a ½ teaspoon of nut butter
• Celery stick with a nut butter
• 8 to 10 unsalted almonds, cashes or pecans
• ½ sliced tomato (with olive oil drizzle)
For many 14-day detox participants, weight loss and a reduction in body fat is a primary goal, so avoiding snacks whenever possible will help maximize weight loss results.
FOODS TO AVOIDA core element of our 14-Day detox and cleanse is to eat healthfully and reduce or eliminate the consumption of grains (especially those which contain Gluten). Those grains which should be avoided include wheat, rye, barely, and oats. Additionally, soy and corn are foods which can contain allergens and can cause inflammation and therefore should also be eliminated from your diet during this program.
Gabby and Laird also strongly recommend you start every day with 8-12 ounces of water mixed with fresh squeezed lemon and teaspoon of Pink Himalayan sea salt, in order to help properly hydrate your body, provide a broad spectrum of essential minerals, plus help kickstart the digestion process and help cleanse your liver.
The general guidelines for foods you should avoid and other helpful hints are as follows:
• Sugar in all forms
• Artificial sweeteners
• Grains (which contain gluten)
• Dairy products (including cheese, yogurt, and ice cream)
• All alcohol and caffeine
• Soy and tofu
• Chocolate, candy, cakes, cookies
• Highly processed and packaged foods
• Fried foods
• Avoid plastics
• Minimize microwave use
• Drink 9 to 13 Cups of Clean water
EXERCISE AND PHYSICAL ACTIVITY PHILOSOPHYRoutine daily, physical, activity is essential to a healthy lifestyle at any age. The US Center for Disease Control (CDC) recommends one hour or more of daily physical activity for all adults (as well as children). Our philosophy is that everyone should do a combination of high intensity interval training (3 days per week), along with low intensity recreational activity on the alternate days, with a full day of rest one day per week.
For both men and women (young and old), it is essential to focus on strength and muscle development, as well as improved cardiovascular health, flexibility and balance. A well designed exercise program that incorporates high intensity functional movements can stimulate improved muscle development as well as a reduction in body fat, while improving cardiovascular health, balance and coordination all at the same time. Remember, it is important to only do high intensity exercise just 3 days per week, so your body has a chance to recover on the opposite days.
EXERCISE AND PHYSICAL ACTIVITY SCHEDULEThe correct intensity of physical activity will vary depending on your age, weight, medical conditions, and previous exercise history. When you start any new exercise program, you need to begin with an intensity level that is initially comfortable for you. As your body acclimates and begins to adapt to your new exercise regimen, you should slowly increase the intensity level to ensure that your fitness level and results continue to progress.
Assuming that you have been generally inactive for several months, we would recommend that you start with our beginner level functional training workouts. However, for those individuals who find our beginner workouts too easy, we also offer advanced, intermediate, and extreme functional workouts for you to choose from. The goal is to select a starting exercise level that is right for you and then gradually progress over time. There are 12 functional workouts for each fitness level, so it will take at least 4 weeks to complete all the workouts in each difficulty level.
An example 14-day functional fitness program is as follows:• Day 1 – Beginner functional workout 1 (M/F)
• Day 2 – 60 minutes brisk walking (3 to 4 miles)
• Day 3 – Beginner functional workout 2 (M/F)
• Day 4 – 1 hour hill climb (2 to 3 miles round trip)
• Day 5 - Beginner functional workout 3 (M/F)
• Day 6 - Bike ride (10 to 12 mile street ride)
• Day 7 – REST!
• Day 8 – Beginner workout 4 (M/F)
• Day 9 – Mountain bike ride (8 to 10 miles round trip)
• Day 10 – Beginner workout 5 (M/F)
• Day 11 - Pool swim & pool walk (60 minutes total)
• Day 12 – Beginner workout 6 (M/F)
• Day 13 – Interval running (8 to 10 100-yard runs, walk back)
• Day 14 – REST!
Once again, it is important to stay within your body’s capabilities. During your functional workouts, you should exercise at an intensity level that causes you to breath heavy enough that having a continuous conversation would be difficult (difficulty level 7 to 8 out of 10). On the opposite days (recreational activity), it is ok to exercise at a difficulty level where having a conversation is possible (difficulty level 5 or 6 out of 10).
14-Day Detox & Cleanse Expected ResultsAs a general rule, the expected, safe and sustainable level of weight loss is 1 to 4 pounds per week. For those people who have previously had poor nutrition habits and been inactive, our 14-Day detox & cleanse will result in 6 to 8 pounds (or more) of initial weight loss.
Remember, the overall goal of our 14-Day detox is not just weight loss, but to detoxify your body, jump-start your fitness program, and return you back to healthy living behaviors. Most medical professionals will advocate a 14-day detox & cleanse at least once per year in order to help offset the potential damage caused by environmental toxins, but it is also important to try to sustain healthy eating habits and regular physical activity year round.
After just two weeks of healthy eating, proper nutritional support, and the proper level of physical activity you will feel fantastic as well as notice a significant reduction in body fat and improved sports performance. Once you achieve your initial weight loss and fitness goals we encourage you to utilize all the free tools and resourcea at gabbyandlaird.com to keep yourself progressing, as well as use our TRUition products to help supply your body the quality nutrition it needs to thrive.
