Psalm 51:10-12 - Create in me a clean heart, O God; and renew a right spirit within me.11 Cast me not away from thy presence; and take not thy holy spirit from me. 12 Restore unto me the joy of thy salvation; and uphold me with thy free spirit.
Today's Christian weight loss program is the practice of exercising our faith to cleanse our heart, soul and mind. For years we have been victims of toxic thoughts running through our head, toxic foods getting in our body from junk food and toxic relationships we have allowed to fill our lives.
Let us come to the Father and pray to cleanse us in ways we might of not been aware of until today. Let's learn about the benefits of food God created for wholesome living so that we can break free from binge eating and have better control to make wise choices of our eating habits.
Here are my Top 12 detox foods that come from God to help stop binge eating on junk food.
Blueberries are truly one of the most powerful healing foods, blueberries contain natural aspirin that helps lessen the tissue-damaging effects of chronic inflammation, while lessening pain. Blueberries also act as antibiotics by blocking bacteria in the urinary tract, thereby helping to prevent infections. They also have antiviral properties and help to block toxins from crossing the blood-brain barrier to gain access to the delicate brain.
Apples help to stop binge eating, because apples are high in pectin, a type of fiber that binds to cholesterol and heavy metals in the body, they help eliminate toxic build up and to cleanse the intestines. Feel satisfied before you start eating your next meal.
Avocados. We rarely think of avocados as a cleansing food but these nutritional powerhouses lower cholesterol and dilate blood vessels while blocking artery-destroying toxicity. Avocados contain a nutrient called glutathione, which blocks at least thirty different carcinogens while helping the liver detoxify synthetic chemicals.
Beans. Try eating Hummus by adding to your next meal since they loaded with fiber that helps lower cholesterol, cleanses the intestines and regulates blood sugar levels. Legumes also help protect the body against cancer.
Cooked Beets. I love to cook beets in a saucepan on the stove top in 3 cups of filtered water and I then add 3 tablespoons of apple cider vinegar and sweeten with 4-6 envelopes of Whole Earth natural NO chemical NO calorie sweetener. contain a unique mixture of natural plant compounds that make them superb blood purifiers and liver cleansers.
Cabbage. Cabbage contains numerous anticancer and antioxidant compounds and helps the liver break down excess hormones. Cabbage also cleanses the digestive tract and neutralizes some of the damaging compounds found in cigarette smoke (and second-hand smoke). It also strengthens the liver’s ability to detoxify. I like to put some in my food processor with baby carrots to shred it. Put in a bowl in your fridge and add to salads and stir fry’s.
Celery and Celery Seeds. Celery and celery seeds are excellent blood cleansers and contain many different anticancer compounds that help detoxify cancer cells from the body. Celery seeds contain over twenty anti-inflammatory substances. It is particularly good for detoxifying substances found in processed food.
Flaxseeds and Flaxseed Oil. Loaded with essential fatty acids, particularly the Omega-3s, flaxseeds and flaxseed oil are essential for many cleansing functions throughout the body.
Fresh Cranberries. Cleanse your body from harmful bacteria and viruses that may be lingering in your urinary tract with cranberries since they contain antibiotic and antiviral substances.
Garlic. Eat garlic to cleanse harmful bacteria, intestinal parasites and viruses from your body, especially from the blood and intestines. It also helps cleanse build-up from the arteries and has anti-cancer and antioxidant properties that help detoxify the body of harmful substances. Additionally, garlic assists with cleansing the respiratory tract by expelling mucous build-up in the lungs and sinuses. For the health benefits, choose only fresh garlic, not garlic powder, which has virtually none of the above properties.
Grapefruit. Add a ruby red grapefruit to your breakfast to benefit from pectin fiber that binds to cholesterol, thereby cleansing the blood. Pectin also binds to heavy metals and helps escort them out of the body. It also has antiviral compounds that cleanse harmful viruses out of the body. Detox your intestines and liver with grapefruit.
Lemons are my go to to stop binge eating, and lemons are excellent liver detoxifiers, lemons contain high amounts of vitamin C, a vitamin needed by the body to make an important substance called glutathione. Glutathione helps the liver detoxify harmful chemicals. Add a squeeze of fresh lemon juice (not the bottled variety) to pure water, salads and plain yogurt to support your cleansing efforts on a daily basis.
Cleansing the mind
The Lord says, we will have trouble in this life but take heart, for I have overcome the world. Take captive those painful thoughts with prayer. Most often if we give it to God and sit still, he will work on our behalf because the worst-case scenario is never the worst case with God. Start each waking morning with gratitude and remember God is good to us. God makes all things possible! Yes God's love peace and power will help you eat real food so you can stop binge eating as you see the desire slip away. God bless you!
