Sick and tired of feeling sick and tired? Even after getting a good night’s sleep? You are not alone. I went through this cycle for the last six months. Each day I would eat pretty decent meals, workout and do all the things I tell my clients to do. But I felt like I was always dragging with my energy and could not accomplish the things I wanted to get done. Even worse, I started to rely heavily on coffee in the mornings and sugar at night, when in reality, my body was completely exhausted.
Many experts agree that our current fatigue epidemic may have a surprising cause….toxins.
They are all around us. In the air we breath. Absorbed into the foods we eat. Our bodies are working hard to eliminate them, but it’s an uphill battle. And the more we struggle, the more tired we become.
So, I started to look at some options to cleanse my body form all these harmful toxins. And I did not come up empty handed. There are hundreds of different cleanses and detox programs on the market. The traditional ones are little or no food. Just enough calories to keep your body functioning. Topped off with a foul-tasting brew designed to purge your system and send you sprinting to the toilet! But the problem with all these liquid diets or no-food detox programs is that it can purge away the very nutrients your body needs to lose weight safely- and keep it off!
Last year, Beachbody came out with the new 21-Day Reset Challenge. Every single program they unveil delivers tried and true results and I knew this was something to look into. In just three weeks, the program gets rid of toxins you’ve been taking in for years as you replace processed food…with healthy food. There are 3 sensible meals a day that are wholesome and pretty easy to cook. Pair that with (6) supplements to help aid with the digestion and absorption of the food and that’s it. Reset. Renewed. Restored.
So, here I am on Day 13. Never would I have thought that I could kick caffeine to the curb or be full after a big meal of vegetables. Here I am waking up naturally when my body is ready and having energy that stays constant throughout the day. And I’ve lost 4.5 lbs already so I’ll take that too!
Whether you want a jump start to lose weight this summer or sick and tired of feeling sick and tired, a detox is a good thing to consider. Just like you get by with light housework during the year at home, we still need a deep spring cleaning each year to really get things back on track and at optimal health!
