‘Clean Living’ is a term that has been coined to encompass not only a diet-based movement but also looks at our lifestyle as a whole… something we subscribe to at Mammoth Health as we are passionate about incorporating our 7 core principles of Optimum Health.
The secret to Clean Living lies in its simplicity… a diet based around the notion of eating foods in their most natural state. This means eliminating (or at the very least minimising) the following:
● Processed foods
● Preservatives and additives
● Foods with added sugars
● Fast foods
● Foods with high levels of bad fats (i.e. trans fats & excess saturated fats)
● Refined grains and sugars
These foods are replaced with local, fresh, organic (if possible) fruit and vegetables, free-range and grass-fed meat and dairy, and nutrient-rich whole grains.
With 60% of Australians classified as overweight and the implications of this on increased metabolic disorders, diabetes, cancer and cardiovascular disease, a focus on weight control is important. But equally important is focusing on the underlining causes of weight gain – toxin overload, stress, poor digestion, excess sugar consumption, a compromised gut integrity and a lack of exercise.
Weight and body fat levels are but one piece of the puzzle that makes up our complete health and well-being. Practitioners and Programs that not only show you how to eat and exercise, but focus on safe elimination of stored toxins and enhance digestive health, as well as help you sleep better and deal with stress, are more likely to get the best results.
Whole Health Eating Focuses Not Just On Weight-Loss But On Healthier Lifestyles
The ‘Clean Living’ approach is all about getting away from highly processed foods and back into eating whole foods. Whole health eating focuses not just on weight loss but on healthier lifestyles. With emphasis on eating and enjoying seasonal foods sourced locally– we’ve finally embraced the notion of eating watermelon in the middle of a Victorian Winter just doesn’t seem right. Thank goodness summer is just around the corner and we can again enjoy the bounty of summer fruits.
After fourteen years of being in the health and wellness industry, I have heard the many issues and struggles of those who are desperate to lose weight. It is understandable to ‘buy into’ the promise for a quick fix when all else has seemingly failed.
Many have had weight issues for most of their life, and essentially tried every diet, every magic pill, everything, it would seem, to try and lose weight. Most stick with the new promise for a few weeks and then fall off the wagon and blame themselves – the guilt, the self-loathing, the feeling of helplessness and despair – and their self-fulfilling prophecy of failure is reinforced.
And every time a new magic weight-loss pill or diet is released the cycle continues. Back on the wagon, I suspect to convince others (but mostly themselves) that they are trying and are taking control.
But inevitably they don’t really believe it’ll work because it never has before. And it doesn’t.
Introducing Summer Ready 2014
At Mammoth Health we are also very frustrated about the misinformation out there mostly around the marketing of quick- fix weight-loss pills and programs, empty promises and yo-yo dieting.
And so it’s time to launch “Summer Ready 2014”, our four-week program, whereby you will work one-on-one with Kate, our gorgeous naturopath to transform not only your physical health but also your mental health in time to embrace and enjoy Summer.
Mammoth Health’s Summer Ready 2014 program had been designed to aid elimination of toxins, fluid build-up and excess sugar molecules, regulate insulin production and optimise gut integrity. The ultimate aim is to increase energy and vitality, promote weight loss and enhance digestive health all in time for Summer.
Your dietary habits will be assessed and overhauled and Kate will design an individual eating guide every 2 weeks for you whilst you’re on the program. This means she’ll address your individual needs – your likes, dislikes, allergies, intolerances and aversions and optimise your diet so you get great results.
Fat burning, liver support, gut repair and lymphatics will be addressed and enhanced to get results fast. Body measurements, weight readings, iridology, pH level monitoring and tongue and nail analysis will be done throughout the program to track your progress and provide support and motivation to keep you on track.
Summer Ready 2014 is launched today and unfortunately the first intake is capped to ten people (i.e. the first ten people to sign up are in). Intake for this program will close on Wednesday November 5th.
So if you are sick of being overweight, feeling lethargic, unmotivated, sluggish and tired; if you are sick of the quick fix, magic pills and magic promises and the yo-yo dieting that just doesn’t work; and if you are committed and ready to make a change, this program is for you.
