Detox Cleanse

Well, it’s that time of the year when we all start making resolutions for change.  We aspire to become better people and to take better care of ourselves.  We set unrealistic goals, take an all-or-nothing approach, and most of us will epically fail within the first few months.  Weight loss, nutrition, and self-improvement are choices that we make daily, every time we open our mouths to put something into our bodies. 

Many of you have asked about cleansing and detox kits.  Don’t buy them!  Anything that is artificial or comes as a supplement or powder isn’t worth chancing.

I do think cleansing and detox can be healthy and play a good role in jump starting you into a new healthier lifestyle.  I came across a 14 day detox program that uses only real food to detox which I think is safe for most.  It also incorporates social support for the program which is where many of us fail in our New Year’s Resolutions.  You can learn more about this at http://www.yurielkaim.com/
