Knowing your oxidation rate is an important piece of information for your health. Your rate of oxidation in simple terms is how fast do you burn food? Some people burn food slowly, while others burn food quickly. In any case, knowing this important piece of information has a great effect of bringing you the right recipes for the detox diet and your health.
A person burning food quickly is called a fast oxidizer, and a person slowly burning food is called a slow oxidizer. A fast oxidizer needs slower burning food like a diet with more good quality, good fat and oil. The slow-burning food is a good supplement for the fast oxidizer, as this person gets energy.
In contrast, the slow oxidizer may have a diet of faster-burning foods, such as cereal products, but less of the high-quality fat and oil. So there is a big difference between the two in terms of their metabolic needs.
If your diet does not match your rate of oxidation, you will not get the right nutrition for the speed at which your body burns food. This right element for proper nutrition is one of the most important keys to good health.
Now that you know that your oxidation rate is critical, how do you find out your oxidation rate?
The key is your hair, although your hair is dead, it is a storage place for all your macro-minerals, trace elements and toxic metals. As hair grows, these minerals and toxins deposit in the hair over a period of 3 to 4 months. Using a hair manure test and the experience of a lab that is scrutinizing your hair, you can determine your rate of oxidation. Once this important information is known, you can choose your exact diet for you and only for you. (See Analytical Research Laboratory)
No more guessing games! And for the people who had the intuition that all foods are not all equally affecting, bravo, you were right and the two oxidation rates are why. An example would be if you are a fast oxidizer than many grains, and fruits are not a good choice, because grains and fruits burn very fast, and sustained energy for fast oxidation may not be possible. The fast oxidizer will not be hungry long after eating. I know, there are those who say it's me, I get hungry one hour after eating, and the reason is a bad diet.
In contrast, if the fast oxidizer eats slow-burning food such as eggs, olive oil, butter, or some nuts (as an example), sustained energy will pass and the need to eat will slow down. Slow oxidizers have the opposite effect, they need and can eat faster burning food that will sustain their energy.
To simplify that, there are some people who are like a car on a highway that burns fuel quickly. (fast oxidizer) And the other is the car driving slowly down a side street. (slow oxidants)
If we take the analogy a step further, it's like a car that needs unleaded gasoline, but some diesel fuel mixed with some unleaded gasoline. It is the wrong fuel! It will work but not at its best and repairs will be required over time.
Now that the concept of your oxidation and diet has been explained, you can talk about detox diet. The keyword "detox diet" is often thrown out there, but if you do not know your oxidation rate, you often eat the wrong food or food. Detox diets must match a person's rate of oxidation.
In this article, I present a sample schedule for both slow and fast oxidants.
Recipes for detox diet:
Breakfast for Slow Oxidizer:
2 eggs with spinach omelette, in 1 teaspoon of olive oil or butter
1 slice of Ezekiel bread level
1/4 cup blueberries
Breakfast for Fast Oxidizer:
2 eggs with spinach omelette, in 3 tablespoons of olive oil or butter
2 links organic turkey sausage
1 celery with almond butter
In this example, the slow oxidation breakfast has much less fat and oil in its meal and may have a high quality cereal product as well as a small amount of fruit. The slow oxidizer will burn this food slowly and maintain energy throughout the morning.
In contrast, the fast oxidizer requires more olive oil or butter in the diet and more fat and oil in the almond
Butter and turkey sausage. This combination of food will burn slowly for the fast oxidizer and sustain that individual with sustainable energy throughout the morning.
Lunch for the Slow Oxidizer:
4 oz roasted chicken breast, very light butter and garlic
1 cup of steamed carrots with 1 teaspoon of butter and sea salt
1/2 cup brown rice
Lunch for the Fast Oxidizer:
4 oz roasted chicken thighs, with a little butter and garlic
1 cup steamed carrots with 3 tablespoons butter and sea salt
In this example, you can see again that the slow oxidant contains much less fat and oil than the fast oxidant.
Both have protein and vegetables there. Slowly the grain (brown rice) has the fast has more fat and oil.
(dark meat chicken, butter and pecan nut) Which slowly has the chicken breast much less fat.
Dinner for the Slow Oxidizer:
Fried 4 ounces of flounder with garlic and lemon juice
Swiss chard with cranberries, small amount of olive oil
Sweet Potato level
Dinner for Fast Oxidizer:
4 ounces of flounder with butter and garlic
Swiss chard with almonds and butter and olive oil
Sweet potato with 3 tablespoons butter
Again we see that the slow oxidizer may have flounder with lemon and the slow one may have the cranberries and simple sweet potato. The fast has the flounder with butter, which has more fat and also the fast has more butter on the sweet potato and fat in the almonds.
These recipes are examples of the distinction between the oxidation rates of slow and fast individuals. Without knowing how fast your body burns food, all the detox diets in the world will have little or no positive effect and even be harmful.
For example, the popular lemon detox diet is not a good choice for fast oxidizers as their rate of oxidation requires slower burning food. Lemon is a fruit and therefore burns very fast and this kind of detoxification should be avoided.
Adjusting your body with the right detox diet as well as adjusting your body with the right supplements and lifestyle changes are so much more in the long run than diets or bland liquid berry drinks. Not only will you be properly and properly detoxified, your right diet will have excellent effects on weight loss and weight gain. It's very easy, you know your oxidation rate!
I'd like to quickly point out that the rule of thumb is to avoid foods that have added or taken away something. The best quality foods are those that are in a natural state just like your great-grandmother uses to eat them.
