14 Day Gentle Fall Cleanse – Online Program

Did you indulge a wee bit this past summer?http://www.dreamstime.com/-image973884

Starting to feel those jeans getting snug?

Still trying to shed those last few pounds?

Do you need a kick-start to get you on your way to feeling better?

Do you want to feel the health benefits of a gentle cleanse?

It’s true, our bodies are eliminating toxins every day.  By reducing our exposure to these toxins such as free radicals, environmental pollution, food additives, pesticides and more, we can help our bodies do a more effective job.  This will result in more energy, increased immune function and better overall health.

I will be following this cleanse myself.  Yes, I am a nutritionist and I eat healthy.  Most of the time.  Hey, I’m a person too and I also like to have fun sometimes!  I will be starting this cleanse in just a few days and I hope you will join me.

It will only cost you $2 a day!

Have a healthy day!

KAREN’S PERSONAL WEIGHT LOSS JOURNAL

May 26, 2014.  Week 10.  Day 64.  7 lbs down.

Seven pounds in nine weeks.  Some might say that’s not a great accomplishment.  Even I expected more from myself.

But, the truth is, I have been carrying around this extra weight for nearly four years.  I don’t expect to lose it (and keep it off!) in a short amount of time.  Even if it takes me a year, I’m ok with that.  What’s one more year?  Time flies!

I’m getting stronger.  I’m seeing shape and definition forming on my body!  I’m feeling good!

I also want to remind you, I didn’t have a lot to lose.  My goal is to lose 25 pounds.  Only 18 more pounds to go and I will be the weight I was when I got pregnant, and in a healthy BMI range.  A bigger, secondary goal is to gain muscle mass.

Me on the Ottawa River.

In my last written blog, I wrote about starting a nutritional detox.  Unfortunately, that hasn’t happened yet.  The stars were not aligned for me.  Meaning, the timing wasn’t quite right.   My biggest obstacle last week was a dinner I had planned with a friend.  We went to a popular restaurant.  I had a Thai noodle bowl.  It was delicious!  Now, are you wondering what’s wrong with a Thai noodle bowl?  Or why didn’t I order something like a salad instead?  Well, first, I will say there’s nothing wrong with a Thai noodle bowl.  But, restaurants rarely or never use organic ingredients (unless it’s an organic restaurant).  Thai sauce contains sugar.  Basically, a lot of restaurant meals will be low on nutrition, and high on calories.  By the way, I checked after my dinner when I got home, and that Thai noodle bowl was a whopping 900 calories!  And yes, I ate the whole thing.

If you’re still wondering why I didn’t order a salad, it’s because when I go to a restaurant I like to enjoy my meal.  I sometimes do eat salads.  And sometimes noodles.

Tomorrow I start my detox and I’ll admit, it’s not easy for me.  Yes, I’m a holistic nutritionist.  Yes, I eat healthy.  But hey, I am just like you.  I like my treats too.

Tomorrow I start my detox and I plan to follow it for seven days.  Seven days without wheat, dairy, sugar, coffee…and the list goes on…

I’ll keep you posted.

 

KAREN’S PERSONAL WEIGHT LOSS JOURNAL

April 16, 2014.  Week 4.  Day 24.  3 lbs down.

I need to step this up.  My new goal is 2 – 3 lbs per week.  I should reach my pre-pregnancy weight of 150 lbs by mid-July, if  not sooner.  I talked about my food choices in my last Youtube video and basically said that I’m not going to change the way I eat.  True, I eat well with treats in moderation.  Treats like chocolate, French fries, and yes, cheese.  If you saw the video you know that I made lasagna for dinner.  I ate that lasagna for three days in a row.  I like to prepare big meals that I can save for left-overs.  This way I don’t have to cook every day.  🙂

Well, maybe that ooey-gooey-yummy-lasagna came at a price.  Maybe it’s ok to eat cheesy pasta while ‘maintaining’ a healthy weight, but for a 2 – 3 lb weight loss I need to lose the cheese.  And probably the gluten too.

In fact, I’ll be preparing for a complete nutritional cleanse or detox in the next few days.  If you’re in the Rockland area, I would love to see you at my upcoming detox workshop.  To be perfectly clear, the purpose of a detox is not to lose weight.  It’s health benefits are so much more than that!  A detox will reduce your toxic load, resulting in an improved immune system and increased energy to name just a few.  Of course, by eliminating foods such as wheat and dairy, I’m sure to lose some extra pounds!
