As the Fall season gets in full-swing we have started pulling out the sweaters, coats and boots that will carry us through the next six months of cooler weather.
Here in the Pacific Northwest we all look forward to the beautiful foliage as it changes from green to gold and red. As the days get shorter we start to spend more time indoors and if you’re like me, you’re looking forward to the change in the season and the coming holidays with family and friends. These fun get-togethers also bring so many opportunities for eating good food; sometimes a little too much good food.
We love the season, with the parties and celebrations, but we don’t like the prospect of eating food that leaves us feeling heavy, bloated and foggy-brained. As the parties begin and the food and drinks start to show up at work and at home, you may be worried whether you’ll have to step into the next size jeans come Spring. What if there was a way to slow down the eating and provide you with a way to hit “pause” to help you select healthier food this time? What if you could learn how to listen to your body and get different results this year? What if this time you could float through the holidays lighter, healthier and slimmer?
This is not only possible, but it may just be the best thing you could do for your health right now. You’ve heard of cleansing diets and want to know whether this is something that might make sense for you to do. There are many types of cleanse programs and not all of them are suitable for everyone. We will discuss the benefits of a well-designed cleanse and how it can benefit you.
The purpose of a cleanse program is to clear the body of the most common inflammatory foods and toxic substances for a limited time; to give your hard-working organs a period when they don’t have to work so hard to get rid of chemicals, irritants and sugar.
