How is Dr. Cabral's Weight Loss Program Different 18:20

- There is no long term solution to weight loss with high intensity exercise and super low calories

- Dr. Cabral does functional detox for 21 days, lower inflammatory diet plan, helping rebalance blood sugar, improving thermogenesis

- 3-4 days a week of exercise, 10,000 steps a day, eating 3 meals per day, intermittent fasting

- They help people lose the weight, but not to struggle with it the rest of their life

- Estrogen dominance is a big reason why women cannot lose long term weight

- Lab tests: Blood sugar, Vitamin D, Thyroid, Cortisol, Estrogen Dominance, irritability, digestive issues

 - Helps people become carb adapted and fat adapted

- Takes 12-16 weeks for cells to turn over in the body, so you need to test and make sure the program works for longer

Why is Detox important 23:30

- Every natural medical system uses Detox in their programs, and typically do it seasonally

- Before 1940, there were only 2,000 chemicals in the environment

- Real industrial revolution has caused over 100,000 man made chemicals, and over 50% are being identified as carcinogenic

- Average woman uses 12 different bath products and cosmetic product which contain 126 chemicals - all before leaving the house

- These have never been tested over a long time, or tested in combinations that we are being exposed to

- Can do an environmental toxicity test and figure out what is in your system, this is a urine based test

- For heavy metals, you have to run a mineral and metals test. This is a hair test.

- Dr. Cabral recommends the big 5: Gut health, food sensitivities, heave metals, vitamin levels, regular mineral levels, Omega-3
