As a fitness and nutrition coach, one of the hardest things for my clients to do was stay on track. Cravings and peer pressure can be horrendous (I KNOW, trust me!). In the Spring of 2011 I was introduced to nutritional cleansing and I was skeptical. First off, when I heard the word “cleanse” I had thoughts of my system being cleaned out like prior to a colonoscopy. Fortunately my friend Barb, a fitness mentor and friend, educated me that this program was different. I would not have to be five feet from a bathroom all day long, this was “cellular cleansing” a nutrient-dense whole organ/body one or two day aloe – based intermittent fast that would leave me with mental clarity and tons of energy. At the time I was tired of being tired all the time as having had Graves Disease 14 years earlier which led to my thyroid being removed. I thought the cross I had to bear for the rest of my life was sluggishness, brain fog, “fluffy” body, etc.
I started my first 30-day system on a Monday, wondering what was I doing, but I put the products in my body. About day three I wasn’t hitting my snooze 10 times a morning trying to get “just five more minutes” of sleep, I was either awake before the alarm or when it did wake me up, I got up immediately and was AWAKE! By day four I knew exactly what the mental clarity Barb and my other friends were talking about was! I went home from work that afternoon and for the first time in months, didn’t take an hour-long nap to make it through the rest of the night. Within two weeks, I had lost 10 lbs. and by the end of my 30 days I was down a jean size and had lost a total of 15 lbs., but that was a bonus. I had more energy than I had before my thyroid was removed, I felt 20 years younger and still do today. Mark who was SUPER skeptical (and a little upset I did this without telling him), saw the results and decided he too wanted what I was feeling!
People who I haven’t seen us 10 years cannot believe that we look better now we did the last time they saw us! And NO, we have not had any cosmetic surgery, unless hair dye and having braces are considered cosmetic surgery.
