Fat loss can be challenging for most people. Different professionals including fitness trainers and doctors, have varying viewpoints about why we are fat. If you have been trying to lose weight along with fat, you may have been given excuses by those trying to help.

Some people have a sluggish metabolism while some have problems with their thyroid or other parts of their hormone system. You may have been told that your problem is genetic. Perhaps you were told that only prescription drugs would help. This is simply not true.

Most people start with the same mistake that is common to becoming overweight - we just eat too much of the wrong foods. Okay, so we have identified the problem and want to correct it. Here's the hard part. You start eating what you are supposed to so you can lose weight - but you don't. You are told it's a "plateau" so you keep going. Food cravings get the best of you and you falter. Now you have to start all over.

If this sounds familiar, like you've been there and done that, just know that you are not alone. And - you are not the problem. The problem lies in the fact that your body is stuck. What exactly does this mean?

It means that your body and metabolism are clogged with impurities that stop it from doing what it is supposed to do. Normal body functions are supposed to happen to keep the body in balance. This balance includes your thyroid function, your weight, your ability to lose fat and balance in your moods.

In order for your body to stay in balance, all systems must work the right way. It is supposed to be a natural ability to lose excess fat and excess weight. However, this doesn't happen for many reasons, and all of these reasons lead back to the same thing - impurities or toxins.

If your thyroid is sluggish, chances are that chemicals toxins such as bleach and perchlorate are causing this. (Just so you know, perchlorate is used in the manufacture of rocket fuel and has been leaking into our drinking water for at least 15 years if not more. Check the EPA's website to learn more.)

It all comes down to toxins. Some toxins mimic hormones, causing imbalances. Other toxins cause you to store fat. You could even call high-fructose corn syrup a toxin now that it is becoming clear it may be a major cause of obesity and food cravings.

If you have fat around your stomach area, your body is obviously not eliminating everything it doesn't need - because you certainly don't need that.

This is the reason it is important to help your body cleanse away toxins. You must help your body eliminate waste and flush fat.

Cleansing your body means you must stop eating foods that have harmful byproducts in them and to start eating food that is easier to digest. Taking extra fiber can help soften and remove buildup that can cause your body to not work the way it is supposed to.

Remember that it took years to create an unhealthy body and you are trying to undo the damage in a shorter period of time. You can easily help your body remove 40 pounds and more in just a couple or few months that took years to pack on.

Any type of diet or program that helps your body lose excess waste and junk it doesn't need is a type of cleanse. So take it a step further and add a colon cleanse or body cleanse to your program. It will expedite the process and make your fat loss more permanent.

There are many resources and loads of information to help your. Do your research and don't overlook one of the most important aspects of fat loss and weight loss. Do yourself and your body a favor by helping it to cleanse.
