No matter how well you eat (meaning your diet consists of mostly fats, secondly proteins, and fresh, colorful veggies), you’ll be tempted to eat something else.
If you limit such an event to be a truly rare one, you can virtually eliminate the bad effects with the pill!
Note: Although I lived Tim Ferriss’s 4-Hour Body for a year and a half, I must say that his cheat days really can hinder progress. You will see constant progress but it’s far too slow and the carb-hit most of us take on that day is a massive shock. I strongly urge you to forego that and have a cheat item that you really look forward to once in a while. And take the pill to reverse even that!
Let’s Charcoal – Here’s The Pill
It’s true. One (or two) pills can basically reverse the bad effects of a bad good treat.
It’s a lot easier than the ol’ Two Throated Thumbs to Thinner Thighs purge-after-splurge. And healthier too!
Take one or two activated charcoal pills. Yep, these literally are made from charcoal.
Warning: Various forms exist, most are probably fine, but these made from ground, burnt coconut shells seems to be the highest quality and most effective.
That’s right. Black, dusty, dirty charcoal cleans great!
I discussed activated charcoal when I ghost-wrote the book, Natural Detox – 8 Cheap Ways to Detox and Cleanse Your Body for Jennifer Jolan.
(I just looked through that little powerful book. It’s got some great advice in it. But of course it does, I wrote it.)
People can brush their teeth with it (rinse well!) to help maintain healthy, clean, white teeth.
Charcoal filters in the best water filter ever invented clean your water of everything bad.
Charcoal in little, portable masks can save your life in a building fire or airplane emergency by cleaning the air you breathe.
And after you eat something you shouldn’t have, take one or two activated charcoal pills. The bad stuff binds well to the charcoal and exits your system more than it otherwise do.
Activated charcoal is just good stuff. Some of the less costly activated charcoal is from Source Naturals. There are others better and lower quality, but the Source Naturals 100% Pure this is a good entry-level activated charcoal if you’re budget conscious but still want a decent brand.
Here’s the best quality for the money that I’ve found:
I like the Bulletproof Upgraded Coconut Charcoal because it seems to me to be a little lowered-powered than the others. I can adjust the dosage a little better. I can take one if I didn’t eat too badly, or two and even three (rare) if more uumph is needed. I’ve found taking two daily for 4 days (while on a trip to Austin recently) didn’t have the usual side effect (which is fairly minor: stool darkening and possibly minor constipation after a few days; just drink a lot of water, you’ll be fine even if you take any of them several days in a row). The Bulletproof brand produced no expected and completely minor side effect that the others can bring about.
Note: One thing I failed to say in the book I wrote for Jennifer is that activated charcoal binds to everything possible. Don’t take it within a couple of hours or taking vitamins and minerals or it’ll leech those right out of you along with the dessert you indulged in.
In the Car Backup
Except in hot summer, keep a few backups in your car in case you find yourself in the middle of an unplanned piece of pie.
You’ll thank me for this.
