- Stimulate the process of peristalsis in the colon to remove excess waste that may be impairing its function
- Cleanse the digestive system of microorganisms and, fungi and parasites that may be creating a toxic environment in the gut that is sabotaging weight loss
- Halt the growth of the yeast Candida that contributes to metabolic disorders and weight gain

Understand that your success should be one to two pounds a week. The first 10% of your weight loss should be considered water weight.

There are encouraging recent studies about weight loss through intermittent fasting and low carbohydrate food consumption. Without exercising, consider the intermittent fasting.
