You’ve heard of Dr. Colbert’s 21 Day Detox and Fast, and you’ve heard of the Keto Zone. Both are amazing programs to improve your health. But, which is right for you? Where should you start, 21 Day Detox or Keto Zone?
There are a few key differences between the 21 Day Detox and Keto Zone. One is designed to flush toxins out of your cells, support your immune and detoxification systems, rid your body of individual foods that cause inflammation, and promote cellular health and vitality. The other is a lifestyle that omits harmful sugars and carbohydrates in your diet, uses ketones as your energy source, promotes efficient fat loss, and supports reduced inflammation and better digestion.
Here’s how each can help you toward your wellness and health goals, which is right for you right now, and how to get started.
When choosing any health program, diet, or nutrition plan, I believe it’s always best to start with your own goals. Are you looking to rid your body of the toxins, microbes, and inflammatory compounds that build up in it day after day? Or, are you looking for a complete lifestyle and diet change for weight loss and health?
The 21 Day Detox is all about supporting your immune system and detoxifying your body. Never before have humans been exposed to as many man-made chemicals as now. We breathe toxic air, we drink water with toxic substances and heavy metals, and we eat highly processed foods with harmful additives, chemicals, and pesticides. Many of us are mostly sedentary and have unhealthy bodies that trap toxins in fat cells with no efficient way of ridding them.
Dr. Colbert’s 21 Day Detox and Fast can help your body eliminate them. It supports detoxification systems with the nutrients they need, helps you fast from sugars and harmful substances, and promotes full-body health.
The Keto Zone is designed to help you lose fat and achieve a healthy weight. It is a plan specifically for those who have had trouble losing weight in the past, have accumulated dangerous abdominal fat, have sensitive digestive systems, and whose blood sugars, insulin, energy, and moods swing when they consume sugars and carbohydrates.
In fact, ketogenic diets have been proven to promote efficient abdominal fat loss, within just weeks or months of initiating it. They omit most carbohydrates from the diet and vastly increase fat intake. This allows the body to make ketones for energy instead of using glucose. Ketones provide amazing, steady energy for the brain and body without the peaks and valleys of glucose. Also, the absence of carbohydrates promotes fat loss, which in turn improves the health of the entire body (1).
The 21 Day Detox is designed to be used in the short-term, for just 21 days. In fact, you can use it several times per year to “reset” your systems, detoxify, and feel great. If you are a beginner to detox and/or keto, the 21 Day Detox can be a great place to start. It provides a jump-start and mental transition between unhealthy eating and healthy eating.
Likewise, if you’ve used the Keto Zone for years and are a veteran of healthy eating, the 21 Day Detox can provide a “challenge” to your body by changing your nutrient intake. It can also make Keto more effective by first supporting your immune, digestive, and detox systems.
Why 21 days? This is the amount of time needed to form a new habit. By accomplishing the detox for 21 days, you can move forward with healthy eating and wellness goals.
Keto Zone, on the other hand, is used as a way of eating for life. It’s not a “diet,” but an entire low-carbohydrate, high-fat lifestyle that utilizes healthy whole foods including healthy fats, vegetables, spices, proteins, and more. The Keto Zone can be easily implemented and also used for years. Try new recipes, add more foods, and enjoy a healthy lifestyle!
Both programs are healthy, science-backed nutrition plans that deliver great wellness results.
The Science of the 21 Day Detox: Toxins and Detoxification
First, there is now no doubt that our bodies are filled with man-made, measurable, chemicals, and toxins.
One study from the Environmental Working Group (EWG) on newborns found 287 chemicals and toxins present in umbilical cord blood immediately after birth. These chemicals included pesticides, consumer product ingredients, and wastes or byproducts from burning coals, gas, and garbage. Of these 287 chemicals, 180 are linked to malignancy in humans or animals, 217 are toxic to the brain and nervous system, and 208 may cause birth defects or abnormal development. This study was the first of its kind and would have likely found more toxins had the researchers used a broadened scope of testing. It left little room for doubt that toxins accumulate in adults and are even shared via the umbilical cord when pregnant (2).
Another expert in the field, Joseph Pizzano, ND, has found that toxins affect and contribute to almost every harmful health condition faced in industrialized countries (3). In fact, studies have found that:
For these reasons, it’s vital to detoxify and support the health of the 6 systems that detoxify the body, annually or more often. You can do this with Dr. Colbert’s 21 Day Detox and Fast.
The Science of Keto Zone
Ketogenic diets have been well-studied. They are, without a doubt, successful at promoting healthy weights, reduced body fat and visceral fat, and improved health outcomes.
In fact, studies have found ketogenic diets produce significant fat loss efficiently, and more effectively than low-fat diets.
One study of 120 participants compared the effects of eating a low-carbohydrate ketogenic diet (with less than 20 grams of carbs per day) versus a low-fat diet (<30% of calories from fat), for 24 weeks. Both diets were calorie restricted. The ketogenic diet group lost almost 2 times the percentage of body weight as the low-fat group (an average of 12.9% vs. 6.7%). This included an average of 20.7 pounds of fat loss for the ketogenic diet group, versus just 10.5 pounds in the low-fat. The ketogenic diet group also had greater reductions in triglyceride levels and greater increases in HDL cholesterol, while low-density cholesterol losses were similar. What’s possibly most telling is the low-carbohydrate group had a significantly better completion rate of the trial, indicating a diet that’s easier to stick with (9).
Another study compared a low-carb diet with the United Kingdom’s Diabetes dietary guidelines. The researchers found that the low-carb group lost 15.2 pounds compared to the dietary guidelines group, who only lost an average of 4.6 pounds in 3 months (10).
Moreover, many other studies have also found low-carbohydrate ketogenic diets (<20 grams of carbs per day) promote 200-300% more weight reduction than low-fat diets, and they’re often able to do it without hunger (11). Most impressive, very-low-carbohydrate ketogenic diets target harmful visceral fat (12, 13).
In addition, ketogenic diets improve many health markers beyond weight. Studies have shown:
