How are you guys doing on your cleanse? Whether you are still on the Lemonade detox, or have already started the 30 days Elimination diet, I want to hear from you.
What are your challenges? Any strong detox symptoms? What has changed? Maybe you want to add some action to your regimen; something that will inspire you, get your energy flowing and your metabolism stimulated.
Listen to your body, do some deep breathing in fresh air (or open window), while visualizing your body clean and energized. In your mind, hold the vision of your perfect body, now breathe in the new good eating habits, breathe out the old bad habits. Do this for at least 3 Minutes, then smile, or laugh out loud, or do the chicken dance, real or in your mind. Just really feel it, with energy and excitement. Now go into your bathroom, strip naked and look at your body. Yes look at yourself and say out loud: "I love you! I really love and appreciate you!" If you can say that with some conviction (even if you don't believe it fully yet), your body will become more responsive and cooperative. Just imagine you tell your best friend constantly how you don't like this and that, and always look with critique and disgust at her/him. How long do you think your best friend will stay with you? Right...not for long. So, your body IS you best friend; treat it like one!!
Makes sense? I thought so.
Let me hear from you by following my blog and signing up for it. Explore the options you have here.
Let's make it fun, o.k.?

Starting with the Master Cleanser?

Yes, by all means. The Lemonade Fast is a great way to get to a clean slate before the elimination diet. It gets you definately on the right track. After 3-5 days on the Lemonade Cleanse, you will be so happy to eat some good nutricious food. So, you may want to take a break from food all together for a few days while you clean out your cupboards, and prepare for the 30 days by making your shopping list, for the following plan. Don't forget to state your intention for the day EVERY MORNING after you wake up. Maybe have "post it" with your affirmation all over your home; especially on your bathroom mirror! Drink a large glass of water to cleanse your internal digestive tract from mucous that has accumulated during the night. Do some deep breathing and sit in meditation for at least 5 minutes. Smile, and ( if it gets your energy rise ) do the "chicken dance" in joyful acknowledgment while you visualize having reached your goal. Now you are ready to do some vigorous exercise form your personal program. Your breakfast should include some protein (if you are not on the Lemonade Fast). Enjoy every moment of your morning, because it will set the tone for the day. Shower, and off you go to work, or wherever you may spend your day. More later.....

Weightloss and detox challenge

To all of my brave warriors for health.
First I have to tell you how proud I am of you to have made up your mind to cleanse your body and get rid of the accumulated toxic waste within the next 30 days. Why 30 days? Because if you have been disciplined and eliminated all toxic elements from your diet, it will be much easier for you to continue on a healthy path.
So here we go with day 1
After you have removed all processed and packaged food from your cupboards and refrigerators, let's get started with a day on the "master cleanser" the lemonade diet. If you have not gotten the instructions from me yet, e-mail me, or come by the Center to pick it up.
Next get some meal plans and other hand outs by e-mailing me.
You have to be in this 100%, no cheating, no faltering. I am with you all the way.
For this reason did I create this blog.
Please use it to tell me how you are doing from day to day. Yes, I want to hear from you OFTEN!
