Recipes for a detox diet and your oxidation rate

Lifestyle Fashion

Knowing your rate of oxidation is critical information for your health. Your oxidation rate in simple terms is how fast do you burn food? Some people burn off food slowly, while others burn off food fast. In any case, knowing this critical information goes a long way toward finding the right detox diet recipes and your health.

A person who burns food fast is called a fast oxidizer and a person who burns food slowly is called a slow oxidizer. A fast oxidizer needs more slow-burning foods, such as a diet with more high-quality, good fats and oils. Slow burning food is a good match for the fast oxidizer as that person will maintain energy.

In contrast, the slow oxidizer may have a diet of more rapidly burning foods, such as grain products, but less high-quality fat and oil. So there is a big distinction between the two in terms of your metabolic needs.
If your diet doesn’t match your oxidation rate, you’re not getting the right foods for the rate at which your body burns food. This matching element for proper nutrition is one of the main keys to good health.

Now that you know 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 site for all your macro minerals, trace elements and toxic metals. As the hair grows, these minerals and toxins are deposited in the hair over a period of 3-4 months. Through a hair mineral test and the expertise of a lab that examines your hair properly, you can determine your rate of oxidation. Once this vital information is known, you can pin down your exact diet for you and you alone. (See Analytical Research Laboratory)

No more guesswork! And for the people who had the intuition that all foods do not affect everyone in the same way, bravo, they were right and the two rates of oxidation are the reason. An example would be if you are a fast oxidizer that a lot of grains, and fruits are not a great choice because grains and fruits burn very fast and for fast oxidation it is not possible to hold energy. The fast oxidizer will always be hungry shortly after eating. I know there are those who say that it’s me, I get hungry an hour after eating and the reason is wrong diet.

Now, in contrast, if the fast oxidizer eats slow-burning foods like eggs, olive oil, butter, or some nuts (for example), sustained energy will be produced and the urge to eat will slow down. Slow oxidizers have the opposite effect, they need and can eat faster burning foods that will keep their energy levels up.

So to simplify this, there are some people who are like a car speeding down a highway that burns fuel very quickly. (fast oxidizer) And the other is the car driving slowly down a side street. (slow oxidants)
If we take the analogy one step further, it’s like a car that needs unleaded gasoline, but you’re putting in some diesel fuel mixed with some unleaded gasoline. It’s the wrong fuel! It will work but not at its best and eventually repairs will be needed.

Now that the concept of oxidation and diet has been explained, let’s talk about the detox diet. The buzzword “detox diet” gets thrown around a lot, but unless you know your oxidation rate, you may be eating the wrong food or the wrong food most of the time. Detox diets must match a person’s rate of oxidation.

In this article, I present a sample meal plan for slow and fast oxidizers.

Recipes for the Detox Diet:

Slow Oxidizing Breakfast:

2 eggs with spinach omelette, in 1 teaspoon olive oil or butter
1 slice of plain Ezekiel bread
1/4 cup blueberries

Breakfast for Rapid Oxidizer:

2 eggs with spinach omelette, in 3 tablespoons of olive oil or butter
2-Link Organic Turkey Sausage
1 stalk of celery with almond butter

In this example, the slow-oxidation breakfast has much less fat and oil in your meal and allows you to have a high-quality grain product as well as a small amount of fruit. The slow oxidizer will burn off that food slowly and keep you energized throughout the morning.

In contrast, the fast oxidizer needs more olive oil or butter in its diet and more fat and oil in the almond.
butter and turkey sausage. This combination of foods will burn slowly for the fast oxidizer and will keep that person with sustained energy throughout the morning.

Lunch for the Slow Oxidizer:

4 oz grilled chicken breast, very light butter and garlic
1 cup steamed carrots with 1 teaspoon butter and sea salt
1/2 cup brown rice
Lunch for the Fast Oxidizer:

4 oz grilled chicken thighs, made with a modest amount of butter and garlic
1 cup steamed carrots with 3 tablespoons butter and sea salt
Pecans 6-8

Again in this example, you can see that the slow oxidizer has much less fat and oil than the fast oxidizer.
They both have protein and vegetables. Slow has the grain (brown rice) the fast has more fat and oil.
(dark meat chicken, butter and walnut) The slow chicken breast has much less fat.

Dinner for the Slow Oxidizer:

4 oz Roasted Flounder with Garlic and a Squeeze of Lemon
Chard with blueberries, small amount of olive oil
plain sweet potato

Fast Oxidizer Dinner:

4 oz Flounder with Butter and Garlic
Chard with almonds and butter and olive oil
Sweet potato with 3 tablespoons of butter

Again we see that the slow oxidizer can have lemon flounder and the slow oxidizer can have blueberries and plain sweet potato. The fast has the buttered flounder which has more fat and also the fast has more butter in 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 to no positive effect and may even be harmful.

For example, the popular lemon detox diet is not a good choice for fast oxidizers, as its speed of oxidation requires food to be burned more slowly. Lemon is a fruit and therefore burns very quickly and this type of detox regimen should be avoided.

Matching your body with the right detox diet as well as matching your body with the right supplements and lifestyle modifications are much healthier in the long run than fad diets or fad berry liquid drinks. Not only will you detox properly and safely, your correct diet will have great effects on weight loss and weight gain. It’s very simple, know your oxidation rate!

I’d like to quickly mention that, as a general rule, avoid foods that have something added or taken away from them. The best quality foods are those in a natural state like your great-grandmother ate.
