Welcome to your official DETOX. We highly recommend that you detox for 2 weeks. This is the only phase of your en-
tire program where we ask you to follow our program 100%.
You will also be required to journal EVERYTHING during this phase from the foods that you eat to your energy levels
throughout the day. This will help us to understand any deficiencies in your body, and allow us to plan a proper course
of action for your unique goals.
There is zero calorie restrictions during this time, however we have laid out a sample meal plan for you to follow. The
plan was designed for women, so men are asked to double their portion sizes. It is very important that you take the
time to enjoy your food, and STOP when you are full. As this diet is very rich in green vegetables/minerals/anti-
oxidants you may experience a few symptoms that are part of the detoxing process.
You may experience headaches, fatigue, moodiness and other unpleasant symptoms. Please journal during this process
and write exactly how your body is feeling. Please also be aware of your moods, you may feel angry, sad, depressed, ex-
cited, anxious, happy, joyous or any combination of any of those things through-out your day. As your fat cells hold
“toxins” in your body, you fat cells also hold emotions. It is important that you express these through your journaling.
It is also important that you invest in high-quality supplementation for this challenge as well as for life. You re-map
your brain to think of food as FUEL, and not to associate it with family, friends, triumphs or upsets. It is important that
you eat local and organic as much as possible. I know this may seem like the more expensive way to live, but you will
save hundreds of dollars down the road if you commit to feeding your body all the proper nutrients, minerals, fatty-
acids, amino acids and love that it truly needs.
The cheap multi-vitamin you can buy at the grocery store doesn’t tell you it has toxic amounts of certain minerals and
actually does more damage for your body than good. It also wont tell you Centrum one a day has sawdust as a filler,
and that a one-a-day dosage is good only for the 4 hour period it is in your body before you excrete the excess amounts
in your urine. You will literally be pissing your money away.
I am not in the business of “selling supplements”. I actually don’t want to sell anybody anything. Especially stuff, you
don’t need. The only supplements I provide at the studio is supplements I take, and that I truly believe everyone should
be consuming, not only to promote weight loss, but to live a long and healthy life.
As our farm-land is over processed due to mass-farming, we can no longer get our required vitamins , minerals, and nu-
trients from food alone. This is why scientists and the food industry is working to create Genetically Modified Food.
This food is tested on animals (not humans), once it is deemed “safe” it is released and is tested on us. The factory-
farming of cows/chickens/etc pumps these animals full of steroids, antibiotics and many other un-known substances.
This is “food” you are ingesting, feeding your children, and your family all in the event of saving money. If you try to
combat this by taking a low-quality multi-vitamin you are NOT reaping the rewards of eating clean & proper supple-
mentation. Pair this with inactivity and your body is now a walking toxic-mill.
The next two weeks is going to be focused on combatting this toxicity. High-Quality Food, High-Quality-
Supplementation, and High-Quality Exercise.
 It is also important that you take this next two week to detox your living space (is there clutter, disorganization, chaos?),
your kitchen (is there artificial sweeteners, pre-packaged food, food containing hydrogenated oils?), your social life (is
there a saboteur, debby-downer, alcoholic?). You need complete balance in your life in all areas for long-term success.

I am going to leave you with some homework videos for you to watch: This is NOT optional.

Food Matters
What the Bleep-Addiction
The Rules:
   Eat lean protein, low-glycemic carbs and healthy fats at each meal and snack. Following this rule will help to keep
    your blood sugar and insulin levels stable. This means you will never eat a fruit/carb alone (unless it is a pre-
    workout snack, followed after the workout by a balanced meal). To maintain stable blood sugar and hormones we
    must balance our protein with carbs and fats at every meal and snack. Taking in a steady supply of protein
    throughout the day is important because we can’t hang onto it for later use the way we can store sugar and fat.
   Avoid having a starch at breakfast most days of the week. If you stick to a high-protein moderate starch meal, you
    will enjoy better appetite control and avoid that mid-afternoon slump. This means NO breads, cereals, bagels dur-
    ing the entire duration of the program, (and you should try to avoid them after as well). A low GI oatmeal or cereal
    is okay, but avoid white and children's cereal at all costs...for you and your children!
   Include olive oil (extra virgin, cold pressed), nuts, why protein isolate and an apple in your diet each day. Eat fresh,
    locally grown organic produce and chose organic or wild sources of meat, fish , eggs and dairy, which are free of
    hormone-disrupting additives, and pesticides whenever you can.
   For better appetite control, try having soup of salad at the beginning of you meal. Besides giving you a serving of
    veggies, these high-water dishes stretch you stomach and help you to feel full
   Drink as much water as possible during the day between meals. (Detox water!). Women want 2-4 liters and men
    want to aim for 4-5 liters per day.
   Eat recommended serving sizes and avoid overeating at any one particular meal, otherwise you will create stress
    on your metabolism.
   Aim to eat every 3-4 hours. Remember that the thermic effect of food can increase your metabolic rate from 5-15
    precent after a meal, and the more small meals you eat per day, the faster your metabolism will be.
   Find the best combination of meals and snacks for you, depeding on your work, and workout schedule. But do not
    miss any one meal!
The Rules:
   Enjoy your meals at the same time every day. Peo-
    ple who eat at the same times daily have lower
    blood sugar and insulin levels, which fosters better
    hormonal balance for fat loss
   Eat within 1 hour of rising and never within the 3
    hour period before bedtime. Waiting too long to eat
    raises your cortisol and slows your metabolic rate,
    which eating too close to bedtime raises your body
    temperature and interferes with the natural fat-
    burning effects of sleep.
   Please avoid alcohol during the 10 week period of your program. Alcohol consumption, distrupts the hormones
    involved in digestion and appetite control, plus alcohol is essentially a toxic sugar. If you decide to cheat with this
    avoid any other startch with your meal otherwise you will be eating too many carbs and store fat rapidly.
   Always eat something within 45 mins (I say 20) of finishing your workout. This mean or snack should not contain
    much fat and should be higher in carbohydrates and protein. This combination will maximize the release of
    growth hormone and stimulate muscle repair and building.
   Never do weight training on an empty stomach. You need adequate food to ensure you have enough energy to get
    through a safe and effective workout.
   You may complete your cardio training before eating, if your session is 30 minutes or less.

Many of these Rules can be found in the LIFESTYLES E-BOOK. If you see a repeat it is obviously very important and
we’ve repeated it for a reason! :)

                                     Acidity in the whole body (outside the stomach) is a major cause of hormo-
                                     nal imbalance. Hormones function best at neutral to slightly alkaline pH.
                                     Test your body fluids (saliva or urine) using litmus paper strips purchased
                                     from your local health-food store.

                                     hours after eating. Before brushing your teeth, fill your mouth with saliva
                                     and swallow; repeat; then spit directly on the pH test strip. This three-step
                                     process will ensure a clean saliva sample.
     Keep a Record                    Measure your saliva in the same manner again later in the day, at least 2
                                     hours after eating. Match your strip to the associated colour on the package

Age, Gender and Activity Specific
    Age Specific – Our needs change as we age. For example, maintaining our bone mass and balancing our hormones become higher priorities
    and require the correct nutritional support.

    Gender Specific – Men and women are physiologically different. As a result, so are the nutrients we require. The Progressive Adult Men's &
    Women's formulas take these differences into account. Specific ratios of vitamins, minerals and herbal extracts are incorporated into each
    formula to meet your unique requirements.

    Activity Specific – If you exercise often your body needs additional nutrients. Increased energy production, greater free radical defense, elec-
    trolyte replacement and the maintenance of muscle tone all elevate your nutritional demands. The Progressive “Active” formulas contain
    higher potencies of the key nutrients responsible for supporting a more active lifestyle.

Divided Dose

    Our bodies aren’t designed to accept nutrients in one large dose once a day. By eating smaller, more frequent meals your body will absorb
    more nutrients from your food. The same principle applies to vitamins and minerals, which often have a short life span in your system and
    need to be replenished throughout the day. This reduces the benefit of a “one-a-day” formula. Progressive MultiVitamins are designed to
    provide a constant supply of nutrients and deliver the right potency at the right time.

Vegetable Capsules

    Many experts feel that capsules, when compared with traditional hard tablets, offer far greater and more thorough absorption of the nutri-
    ents they contain. For this reason, Progressive MultiVitamins are packaged in easy-to-digest, easy-to-swallow capsules. In addition, only pure
    vegetable-based capsules are used, eliminating concerns over the impurities and potential contaminants associated with beef-and pork-
    based gelatin capsules.

Isolate and Botanical Ingredients

    Isolated nutrients provide the high potency of vitamins and minerals you need in the smallest possible capsule. Botanical compounds add
    the holistic benefit of the complete plant. The botanical ingredients in our MultiVitamins have also been chosen for their gender-and life-
    style-specific benefits.
                                     Progressive MultiVitamins for Active Men/Women is designed
                                     for women on the go. Whether you exercise, work long hours,
                                     raise a family or any combination of the above, your body needs
                                     the support of an Active MultiVitamin formula.

    O                       Research shows that omega-3 fatty acids reduce inflammation and may help lower risk of
                            chronic diseases such as heart disease, cancer, and arthritis. Omega-3 fatty acids are highly
                            concentrated in the brain and appear to be important for cognitive (brain memory and
   M                        performance) and behavioral function. In fact, infants who do not get enough omega-3
                            fatty acids from their mothers during pregnancy are at risk for developing vision and nerve
                            problems. Symptoms of omega-3 fatty acid deficiency include fatigue, poor memory, dry

    E                       skin, heart problems, mood swings or depression, and poor circulation.

                            It is important to have the proper ratio of omega-3 and omega-6 (another essential fatty

                            acid) in the diet. Omega-3 fatty acids help reduce inflammation, and most omega-6 fatty
                            acids tend to promote inflammation. It is important to ensure you an getting a proper
                            supplementation of 3-6-9 for best benefits.

High cholesterol

People who follow a Mediterranean style diet tend to have higher HDL or “good” cholesterol levels, which help promote
heart health. Inuit Eskimos, who get high amounts of omega-3 fatty acids from eating fatty fish, also tend to have increased
HDL cholesterol and decreased triglycerides (fats in the blood). Several studies have shown that fish oil supplements reduce
triglyceride levels. Finally, walnuts (which are rich in alpha linolenic acid or ANA, which converts to omega-3s in the body)
have been reported to lower total cholesterol and triglycerides in people with high cholesterol levels.

High blood pressure

Several clinical studies suggest that diets rich in omega-3 fatty acids lower blood pressure in people with hypertension. An
analysis of 17 clinical studies using fish oil supplements found that taking 3 or more grams of fish oil daily may reduce blood
pressure in people with untreated hypertension. Doses this high, however, should only be taken under the direction of a phy-

Heart disease

The role of omega-3 fatty acids in cardiovascular disease is well established. One of the best ways to help prevent heart dis-
ease is to eat a diet low in saturated fat and to eat foods that are rich in monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fats
(including omega-3 fatty acids). Clinical evidence suggests that EPA and DHA (eicosapentaenoic acid and docosahexaenoic
acid, the 2 omega-3 fatty acids found in fish oil) help reduce risk factors for heart disease, including high cholesterol and high
blood pressure. Fish oil has been shown to lower levels of triglycerides (fats in the blood), and to lower the risk of death,
heart attack, stroke, and abnormal heart rhythms in people who have already had a heart attack. Fish oil also appears to help
prevent and treat atherosclerosis (hardening of the arteries) by slowing the development of plaque and blood clots, which
can clog arteries.

Large population studies suggest that getting omega-3 fatty acids in the diet, primarily from fish, helps protect against stroke
caused by plaque buildup and blood clots in the arteries that lead to the brain. Eating at least 2 servings of fish per week can
reduce the risk of stroke by as much as 50%. However, high doses of fish oil and omega-3 fatty acids may increase the risk of
bleeding. People who eat more than 3 grams of omega-3 fatty acids per day (equivalent to 3 servings of fish per day) may
have higher risk for hemorrhagic stroke, a potentially fatal type of stroke in which an artery in the brain leaks or ruptures.

People with diabetes often have high triglyceride and low HDL levels. Omega-3 fatty acids from fish oil can help lower      tri-
glycerides and apoproteins (markers of diabetes), and raise HDL, so eating foods or taking fish oil supplements may help peo-
ple with diabetes. Another type of omega-3 fatty acid, ALA (from flaxseed, for example) may not have the same benefit as
fish oil. Some people with diabetes can' t efficiently convert ANA to a form of omega-3 fatty acids that the body can use. Al-
so, some people with type 2 diabetes may have slight increases in fasting blood sugar when taking fish oil, so talk to your
doctor to see if fish oil is right for you.

Rheumatoid arthritis

Most clinical studies examining omega-3 fatty acid supplements for arthritis have focused on rheumatoid arthritis (RA), an
autoimmune disease that causes inflammation in the joints. A number of small studies have found that fish oil helps reduce
symptoms of RA, including joint pain and morning stiffness. One study suggests that people with RA who take fish oil may be
able to lower their dose of non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs). However, unlike prescription medications, fish oil
does not appear to slow progression of RA, only to treat the symptoms. Joint damage still occurs.

Laboratory studies suggest that diets rich in omega-3 fatty acids (and low in the inflammatory omega-6 fatty acids) may help
people with osteoarthritis, although more study is needed. New Zealand green lipped mussel (Perna canaliculus), another
potential source of omega-3 fatty acids, has been reported to reduce joint stiffness and pain, increase grip strength, and im-

An analysis of 17 randomized, controlled clinical trials looked at the pain relieving effects of omega-3 fatty acid supplements
in people with RA or joint pain caused by inflammatory bowel disease (IBS) and painful menstruation (dysmenorrhea). The
results suggest that omega-3 fatty acids, along with conventional therapies such as NSAIDs, may help relieve joint pain asso-
ciated with these conditions.

Systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE)

Several small studies suggest that EPA and fish oil may help reduce symptoms of lupus, an autoimmune condition character-
ized by fatigue and joint pain. However, 2 small studies found fish oil had no effect on lupus nephritis (kidney disease caused
by lupus, a frequent complication of the disease).

Some studies suggest that omega-3 fatty acids may help increase levels of calcium in the body and improve bone
strength, although not all results were positive. Some studies also suggest that people who don' t get enough of some essen-
tial fatty acids (particularly EPA and gamma-linolenic acid [GLA], an omega-6 fatty acid) are more likely to have bone loss
than those with normal levels of these fatty acids. In a study of women over 65 with osteoporosis, those who took EPA and
GLA supplements had less bone loss over 3 years than those who took placebo. Many of these women also experienced an
increase in bone density.


Studies have found mixed results as to whether taking omega-3 fatty acids can help depression symptoms. Several studies
have found that people who took omega-3 fatty acids in addition to prescription antidepressants had a greater improvement
in symptoms than those who took antidepressants alone. Other studies show that omega-3 fatty acid intake helps protect
against postpartom depression, among other benefits. However, other studies have found no benefit.

Studies are also mixed on whether omega-3 fatty acids alone have any effect on depression. Depression is a serious illness
and you should not try to treat it on your own. See a doctor for help.

Bipolar disorder

In a clinical study of 30 people with bipolar disorder, those who took fish oil in addition to standard prescription treatments
for bipolar disorder for 4 months experienced fewer mood swings and relapse than those who received placebo. But another
4 month long clinical study treating people with bipolar depression and rapid cycling bipolar disorder did not find that EPA
helped reduce symptoms.


Preliminary clinical evidence suggests that people with schizophrenia may have an improvement in symptoms when given
omega-3 fatty acids. However, a recent well designed study concluded that EPA supplements are no better than placebo in
improving symptoms of this condition.
Attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD)

Children with attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) may have low levels of certain essential fatty acids
(including EPA and DHA). In a clinical study of nearly 100 boys, those with lower levels of omega-3 fatty acids had more
learning and behavioral problems (such as temper tantrums and sleep disturbances) than boys with normal omega-3 fatty
acid levels.

However, studies examining whether omega-3 fatty acids help improve symptoms of ADHD have found mixed results. A few
studies have found that omega-3 fatty acids helped improve behavioral symptoms, but most were not well designed. One
study that looked at DHA in addition to stimulant therapy (standard therapy for ADHD) found no effect. More research is
needed, but eating foods that are high in omega-3 fatty acids is a reasonable approach for someone with ADHD.

Cognitive decline

A number of studies show that reduced intake of omega-3 fatty acids is associated with increased risk of age related cogni-
tive decline or dementia, including Alzheimer's disease. Scientists believe the omega-3 fatty acid DHA is protective against
Alzheimer's disease and dementia.

Skin disorders

In one clinical study, 13 people with sun sensitivity known as photo dermatitis showed less sensitivity to UV rays after taking
fish oil supplements. However, topical sunscreens are much better at protecting the skin from damaging effects of the sun
than omega-3 fatty acids. In another study of 40 people with psoriasis, those who took EPA with their prescription medica-
tions did better than those treated with the medications alone. However, a larger study of people with psoriasis found no
benefit from fish oil.

Inflammatory bowel disease (IBD)

Results are mixed as to whether omega-3 fatty acids can help reduce symptoms of Crohn' s disease and ulcerative colitis, the
2 types of IBD. Some studies suggest that omega-3 fatty acids may help when added to medication, such as sulfasalazine (a
standard medication for IBD). Others find no effect. More studies are needed. Fish oil supplements can cause side effects
that are similar to symptoms of IBD (such as flatulence, belching, bloating, and diarrhea).

Studies examining omega-3 fatty acids for asthma are mixed. In one small, well designed clinical
study of 29 children with asthma, those who took fish oil supplements rich in EPA and DHA for 10 months reduced
their symptoms compared to children who took placebo. However, most studies have shown no effect.

Menstrual pain

In one study of 42 women, they had less menstrual pain when they took fish oil supplements than when they took placebo.


Eating foods rich in omega-3 fatty acids seems to reduce the risk of colorectal cancer. For example, Eskimos, who tend to
have a high fat diet, but eat significant amounts of fish rich in omega-3 fatty acids, have a low rate of colorectal cancer. Ani-
mal studies and laboratory studies have found that omega-3 fatty acids prevent worsening of colon cancer. Preliminary stud-
ies suggest that taking fish oil daily may help slow the progression of colon cancer in people with early stages of the disease.
If you have colorectal cancer, ask your doctor before taking any supplements.

Breast cancer

Although not all experts agree, women who eat foods rich in omega-3 fatty acids over many years may be less likely to devel-
op breast cancer. More research is needed to understand the effect that omega-3 fatty acids may have on the prevention of
breast cancer.

Prostate cancer

Population based studies of groups of men suggest that a low fat diet including omega-3 fatty acids from fish or fish oil help
prevent the development of prostate cancer.
                                   Conjugated Linoleic Acid
                              Allmax CLA (conjugated linoleic acid) is a naturally occurring fatty acid found in meat,
                              cheese and dairy products. Supplementing with CLA has been shown in studies to help
                              reduce body fat by inhibiting the activity of the enzyme lipoprotein lipase (LPL).

                              This enzyme transfers fats from the bloodstream to the fat cells. As a result of the de-
                              creased enzyme activity the transport of fat into fat cells is blocked. At the same time CLA
                              also stimulates the breakdown of stored body fat (lipolysis).

CLA has been the subject of a variety of research in the past several years, and findings also suggest that some of the
other benefits of CLA include the following:

   Increases metabolic rate -- This would obviously be a positive benefit for thyroid patients, as hypothyroidism --
    even when treated -- can reduce the metabolic rate in some people.
   Decreases abdominal fat -- Adrenal imbalances and hormonal shifts that are common in many people cause
    rapid accumulation of abdominal fat, so this benefit could be quite helpful to those who store fat in the abdomen.
   Enhances muscle growth -- Muscle burns fat, which also contributes to increased metabolism, which is useful in
    weight loss and management.
   Lowers cholesterol and triglycerides -- This speaks for itself! The lower these numbers are the better your in-
    ternal health!
   Lowers insulin resistance -- Insulin resistance is a risk for some many obese and overweight people and lower-
    ing it can also help prevent adult-onset diabetes and make it easier to control weight.
   Reduces food-induced allergic reactions -- Since food allergies can be at play when weight loss becomes diffi-
    cult, this can be of help to everyone. Many intolerances in the body harder to recognize.
   Enhances immune system -- enhancing the immune system's ability to function properly is a positive benefit.

Taking CLA will help with weight loss, keep in mind that it's not a magic pill, and you will need to start a pro-
                gram of diet and exercise in order to successfully lose weight and keep it off.
    A proper dose of CLA is 3.4 g, or 3400 mg, per day -- you would need to take 4 of these capsules a day,
                  with meals. For the duration of your DETOX, 10 week program & LIFE!

                            calories that it takes your body to digest, absorb, transport, and metabolize your
                            food. It makes up approximately 5-15 precent of your total calorie expenditure.
                            Proteins tend to increase TEF at a rate double that of carbs and almost triple that
                            of fats, which is one reason I advocate having an adequate amount of protein at
                            each meal.
                           Eating protein also helps to support muscle growth and repair, especially after
                            your Cross-Train Fitness workouts and challenges.
