Yep, it's that time of year, the time when all of the get thin quick schemes are bombarding you from all sides. I'm here to tell you, THEY DON'T WORK!!!! Unless you're ready to change permanently by eating clean you will not get the results you're looking for. How about we take it one step at a time, okay? Let's start by giving your liver and digestive system a boost!
Step 1: Add juices to your diet. Nope, not that sugar laden fruit juice! I want you to add fresh squeezed vegetable and fruit juices to your daily menu.
I like to start the day with a shot of juice from a whole lime or lemon or 1/2 an orange followed by two 10-oz glasses of purified water. This alone will immediately stimulate your digestion.
About fifteen minutes after the water and citrus juice drink a large glass of vegetable juice. NOT V8, I'm talking fresh vegetable juice! I would really suggest you invest in a vegetable juicer. It is so much cheaper and healthier to make your own juice than buy pre-bottled juices. I have a Hurom juicer and it is the BEST! You can make your juice with leafy greens, carrots, celery and/or any fresh green herbs( parsley, mint, basil, etc.). The greener the juice the better! I highly suggest that all of your produce be organic. Organic is best, you don't want your liver bogged down filtering out the pesticides. Check the Dirty Dozen list for the top priority organic produce. I like to make my juice with chard, kale, celery, cucumber, a few carrots and parsley. Both celery and parsley have great detoxifying qualities and the carrots add a little sweetness:) Most bottled vegetable juices are flash-pasteurized so a lot of the enzymes are killed in the process, sniff, sniff.....
I usually workout after the vegetable juice then have breakfast.
Oh, what to have for breakfast? Stay tuned and I'll let you know!
