January is #CleanseMonth

Preparation is crucial when planning to enter into a cleanse. To get the results the cleanse is designed to give you, you need to wean yourself off a few things leading up to your start date. You’ll be happy you did.

HYDRATING

This is paramount! The majority of us suffer from mild dehydration and many of us are chronically dehydrated. If you follow the instructions, the cleanse will leave you hydrated, replenished and recharged.

At least 3 days before your cleanse, integrate the following into your daily routine (if you don’t already):

  • Start each day with warm water and lemon. Drinking this throughout the day is great too!
  • Drink at least 2 quarts of pure, filtered water a day.
  • Sneak in a few herbal teas if you can!
  • Eliminate caffeine, alcohol, soda and nicotine products.

  • NUTRITION

    At lease three days before your cleanse, we recommend you eat wholesome, whole foods and try to avoid the following:

  • Meat and poultry
  • Processed starches like bread, white rice and pasta
  • Organic dairy and cage-free eggs

  • We recommend you do eat:

  • Some fatty acids. We suggest soaking flax seeds overnight and eating a few big spoonfuls throughout the day (on salads or on their own.)
  • Organic fruits, raw organic salads, raw or steamed organic vegetable and vegetable soups. If eliminating meat seems too difficult, eat small portions of wild-caught fish.
  • Good organic olive oil, coconut oil, spices and lemon juice to kick the flavor up.
  • Some soaked organic almonds if you like, just be sure they are fully chewed.

  • The bottom line here is to eat as clean as you can and you will do very well.
