Nutrition, Fitness, and Wellness articles for busy women who want to lead a healthy, fulfilled life they love.
If you’ve recently gotten remotivated about your health goals, you might be wondering: What’s the best way to get started with new, healthier nutrition habits?
A quick Google search will almost certainly direct you to a variety of choices: crash-diets, juice cleanses, detoxes, etc. You probably know by now that anything that sounds like a magic pill is too good to be true—but does that mean that ALL cleanses and detoxes are a no-go? How should you decide whether a cleanse or detox is right for you?
When it comes to completing a detox, it’s important to ask yourself what you’re hoping to achieve.
If you think that you can drink carrot juice for a week and lose 15 pounds . . . Well, sorry, but that’s probably not gonna happen. However, if you’re just looking to jumpstart your progress and start feeling healthier, more energetic, and all-around better, then participating in a detox might be a great choice for you!
“Detox” can mean a lot of things to a lot of different people. For the purposes of our conversation, when I say “detox,” I don’t mean consuming only juices and shakes, starving yourself, or fasting. I mean cleaning out your system by cutting out the stuff that makes us feel icky. I’m talking about getting back to square one by making extremely intentional, healthy choices for seven days—and then preparing yourself to move forward with more long-term, sustainable healthy habits.
From that angle, a detox week doesn’t have to be extreme, complicated, or expensive—in fact, a truly healthy detox (one that involves real food as opposed to pre-packaged drink mixes or supplements) is pretty simple. And to make things even simpler, I’m offering my readers the opportunity to come along with me on a detox week to kick off the new year!
Starting January 23, I’ll be embarking on my first detox week of the new year, along with all the members of my Thrive VIP community. Together, we’ll spend seven days cleansing our bodies of the ick we built up over the holiday season by consuming only clean foods. I’ll lead members through a full week of eating frequent, intentional, strategically-planned meals so that by the end of day seven, we’ll all be feeling rejuvenated and totally ready to tackle our new year’s health goals. Not only that, but we’ll talk all about my basic nutritional strategies, how blood sugar stabilization can be a total game-changer for your health, and why making healthy choices should NOT equal depriving yourself of the foods that you love.
Wondering how you can join us?? It’s not too late! Sign up for Thrive before January 22 and get access to my 7-Day Real Food Detox—plus all the other amazing perks that come with being a Thrive VIP member! Click here to learn more.
