I plan to guide about three online cleanses per year. Exact dates for the next cleanse are not yet set, but feel free to e-mail me to inquire about possible times.
My online supported cleanse is inspired by Dr. Alejandro Junger’s world-renowned “Clean Cleanse,” an anti-inflammatory, elimination diet. The cleanse is three weeks of clean and intentional eating from a list of whole foods known to be beneficial for body and mind. The main foods we remove from our diets during the cleanse are gluten, dairy, processed sugar, coffee and alcohol. We shift the focus to eating good quality meats, fish, fruit, rice, beans, legumes, vegetables, nuts and seeds, avocado and oils such as coconut and olive. (Here is a one-page printable list of what we eat and avoid during a cleanse.) Like anything that challenges our habits, a cleanse is easier when you have the support of others.
When you sign up for my online supported cleanse, I will add you to a private Facebook group, where you can ask unlimited questions, get to know other people who are also working to improve their health, and be supported by me and by others in your group. I will answer questions daily and post recipes and articles that I feel are helpful. Please note: because of its structure, participants will use Facebook (FB) to take part in this cleanse. Alternatively, my “5-Day Reset” can be done on its own, without the need for FB interaction.
Here’s what I love about this cleanse:
- You can remain athletic, work a full-time job and be a great parent during the three weeks.
- It’s affordable; eating clean does not have to be expensive.
During a cleanse many people report:
- Increased energy, usually in the first week.
- Better digestion including less bloating.
- Better sleep.
- Glowing skin.
- Less physical pain due to the anti-inflammatory nature of the food.
- Increase in happiness.
- And while this is not a cleanse designed for weight loss, many participants do lose some unwanted weight.
The cost to participate is $45. After you sign up you will receive a link to download my “5-Day Reset” ebook. This ebook outlines the first 5 days of everyone’s 3-week cleanse. Please begin to familiarize yourself with this right away! The ebook gives you 7 days of instructions; The first two days are prep work, because one of the keys to your success is being prepared. While following along in the ebook you will know exactly what to eat for breakfast, lunch and dinner.
For weeks 2 and 3 you will begin to plan your own food, but don’t worry, I will still post recipes and the group will have great ideas and be there for you if you ever feel at a loss. The basic cleanse structure is a smoothie in the morning, a nice big lunch and a soup or lighter meal in the evening. Healthy snacks are encouraged. This cleanse is not a calorie-restrictive plan. It’s simply a highly nourishing and very intentional structure for eating that limits potentially inflammatory items for 3 weeks and replaces them with nutrient-dense and healing foods. In fact, many people realize it’s as much a lifestyle as it is a “cleanse,” finding that when the 3 weeks are over, they posess the beginnings of new healthy habits, rather than memories of a diet. If you have additional questions please e-mail me! I look forward to supporting you in this experience that could completely shift your relationship with food.
