Cleansing for the New Year

With the new year quickly approaching, many of us are enjoying the holiday food and festivities, and maybe packing on a little extra holiday weight. While it’s easy to indulge around this time of year, it’s also the perfect time to think about your health for the upcoming year. While many of us make New Year’s Resolutions with the best of intentions, what if we dedicate one this year that vows to see our health resolutions through to the end? I’m going to fill you in on how you can make this the year of fabulous health and wellness for yourself. By committing to a 5-day cleanse to ring in the new year, I’ll get you back on the path to the best version of YOU!


The Purpose of a Cleanse

So, why choose a cleanse over a typical diet to start the year off right? Think of a cleanse as a rapid reset to your system and a jumpstart to your dieting changes. Your body is exposed to numerous toxins daily, some preventable, but some not. Yep, you do your fair share of contributing to the damage of your cells. Think about the choices you make - the foods you eat, the cleaning products you use, and the fragrances you scent your home with. These all hold potential dangers and affect the wellbeing of your mind and body. You can choose to make some positive changes in these departments, but like it or not, you are still exposed to a multitude of environmental toxins you have little to no control over. The purpose of cleansing is to repair the damage done by toxins and provide your body with a rapid reset. It will leave you with a remarkably refreshed and rejuvenated feeling.


A cleansing rapid reset is a commitment to rid your body of toxins by temporarily limiting your portions and the types of foods and liquids you consume. A healthy cleanse with the proper foods will repair damaged cells and areas throughout your body by targeting your digestive system. You’ll bathe your toxin-exposed cells in essential nutrients, vitamins, and other vital cleansing necessities. Not only will the right rapid reset leave you re-energized, but your body will look and feel youthful once again. Piques your interest, doesn’t it?


The 5-Day Cleanse: A Safe and Healthy Choice

Starting your year off the right way also means doing it the safe way. If you’ve experienced a cleanse that left you feeling run down, unmotivated to see it through, or seeing few results, then you know that not all cleanses provide a true rapid reset. While you can undoubtedly cleanse to shed a few pounds and slink your way into that sexy outfit in under a week, there's a vast difference between genuinely cleansing, and starving. That’s why I developed a 5-day cleanse that focuses on building you up while slimming you down. It's a rapid reset of your system that will nourish, hydrate, and energize you, while stripping only the toxins, waste, premature signs of aging, and stubborn belly fat. No joke. When you stick to my 5-day cleanse, you will practically watch the pounds melt away before your eyes, as the fine lines, and dull, saggy skin return to a vibrant, youthful glow! And this is only the beginning! If you can expect this much change in the first few days of your year, imagine how the rest of it is going to look!

The Target of Your 5-Day Cleanse

I always try to educate people about the detrimental effects that inflammation inflicts on the entire body. Inflammation is no joke. It’s the root of so many health issues, diseases, skin, and mental health concerns. When you utilize a safe and nutritious cleanse, you target inflammation that started it all. That’s why I know my 5-day cleanse can make this the year you are feeling and looking your best!


Starting with your unhappy gut, my collagen-filled cleanse will soothe and nourish your digestive tract. While battling the inflammation, then healing and coating your gut, the flood of bone-broth will restore it to a healthy, happy gut. Only then can it function optimally and hold power to influence the health and wellness of your entire body. There’s just no better way to provide your body with an efficient rapid reset.


A Satisfying Cleanse

A rapid reset is possible with anti-inflammatories, amino acids, and clean proteins, all contributing to fighting off and protecting your health. But they do need time to do this. While there are many cleanses out there with varying timeframes, there is actual science behind the 5-day cleanse that gives these essential nutrients enough time to thoroughly cleanse, repair, and reset your system. Now, before you groan and wonder how you’ll survive five days of hunger, some serious grouchiness, and lack of energy, I’ll tell you right now, you won’t experience that here. It shouldn’t ever be that way during a cleanse! My nourishing cleanse is designed to perk you up and keep your stomach feeling satisfied. It provides the energy to not only get through your day but sustain you through exercise as well.


More Benefits of Cleansing for the New Year

When you start the new year with my five-day cleanse and reset program, you will get your fill of delicious bone broth; reaping the anti-inflammatory and healing benefits of:


  •       Gelatin
  •       Collagen
  •       clean protein
  •       Amino acids


Even during your first day of cleansing, you’ll start to notice:


  •       A boost in your energy level
  •       Bloating is subsiding
  •       Your mood and mindset will shift


By the end of your rapid reset, your tummy will be slimmer, and your skin will be unbelievably renewed. It will not only be restored with tone, firmness, and hydration; it will have its fresh, youthful glow again. But that’s not all! The nutritious ingredients in my bone broth, soups, smoothies, and shakes will:


  •       Support heart health
  •       Relieve aches and pains in your joints, including rheumatoid arthritis
  •       Heal your digestive tract
  •       Regulate your thyroid

  •       Heal acne, eczema, dryness, and additional skin concerns
  •       Relieve constipation
  •       Support the health and function of your liver and kidneys



Cleansing Throughout the New Year

Many people have asked if it's safe to repeat a cleanse and, if so, how often it should be done. I can tell you with certainty; this is a cleanse that is safe enough to repeat as often as once a month if you choose to. I routinely cleanse once every three to four months since my own health crash, and I have never felt better! Some have asked why the cleanse should be repeated if they are on a healthy path now. Even when you don’t stray from your healthy lifestyle, don’t forget about all those damaging environmental toxins you’re exposed to daily. Implementing a periodic rapid reset will flush out those nasty havoc-causing toxins and have your systems rebooted again in no time. While you work hard to maintain your health and wellness, it certainly doesn’t hurt to do a little wash, rinse, and repeat now and then to show your body some extra support.


The five-day cleanse nurtures your body with an abundance of vital nutrients proven to cleanse damaged cells, reduce inflammation, and restore your health. This makes it a gentle cleanse that IS safe enough to repeat. Rather than strip you of energy to get you through these five days, you’ll feel a fantastic surge of energy that will push you through to the end. It's a cleanse, unlike any other, you’ll experience and will provide you with all the essentials your body is craving. Repeating my cleanse offers:


  •       Periodic time off for your gut to rest
  •       Protection against inflammation that may be building up again
  •       Incredible weight loss maintenance
  •       Healthy nails, silky hair, and radiant skin


Results That Last

After you jumpstart your healthy lifestyle resolution, you won’t want to lose the incredible energy, uplifted spirits, or any of the other fabulous benefits you gain. And the good news is, sticking to this healthier way of life won’t be hard now that you’ve put in your five days!


Maintain Your Weight

If one of your goals was to get rid of the stubborn belly fat or trim down throughout your body, why risk the chance it will sneak back up on you? The five-day cleanse will help you reach your goal, but then it’s up to you to keep it off. But you’ll have all the tools you need to maintain your after-cleanse life too!


The “No” Foods are Still a NO

Your palette has become accustomed to some pretty incredible new tastes, so don't lose that momentum. Stick with your "yes" foods, and you can't go wrong. Don't let the "no" foods, like unhealthy fats, grains, and sugars, suck you back into your old eating habits.

Instead, continue to fill up on clean proteins, healthy fats, and tons of veggies. Utilize those recipes from the rapid reset and spice them up a bit, giving them your flare, so you never get bored eating the same foods. Continue to add plenty of non-starchy veggies to your daily meal plan. Don’t forget those small portions of healthy carbs to help keep your energy level up and your cravings down. When you keep loading your body with nutrient-rich collagen and bone broth, you stay healthy and protected. Not to mention, sexy and youthful! All of these guidelines will benefit by:


  •       Lowering insulin levels
  •       Strengthening the wall of your gut
  •       Bringing healing and restoration to your cells
  •       Keeping your skin healthy, firm, and hydrated
  •       Ridding your body of inflammation and the risks associated with it
  •       Burning off belly fat
  •       Supporting brain health


The Lifestyle Plan

One of my favorite parts of this plan is the 80/20 Lifestyle Plan. Think of it as your helping hand through maintenance. The 80/20 method keeps you on your course without being overly restrictive and causing you to stray. This tool will allow you to eat the foods you love without ever feeling like you’re cheating or feeling any guilt. Eighty percent of your meals will consist of nutritious superfoods that will help keep your blood sugar low, fight off inflammation, and support your metabolism. Twenty percent of your meals will be made up of sensible portions of foods you enjoy. It allows you to let yourself indulge at those get-togethers and feel good about the choices you make instead of drooling from the sidelines. When you focus eighty percent of your meals on following your new lifestyle, with room to enjoy now and then, you set yourself up for success. Think about it. No feelings of being deprived. No temptation to give up. It’s a win any way you look at it!


Maintaining the results of your 5-day cleanse benefits and making this your year are very attainable and incredibly rewarding. Ready to start your new year off the best way possible? Make it your year!
