A Detox Cleanse Made For A Busy Life
Detoxes have always terrified me. Being a busy mom of 2 children and currently nursing one of them, I felt that a detox would just deplete my body instead of boosting my body and just make me feel hungry all the time. But then I discovered the AMAZING D14 Challenge. This challenge not only allows me to detox without depleting my body, but instead it pumps my body FULL of nutrients, allows me to eat when I'm hungry, and eliminates all the foods that I should be avoiding anyway, especially while I'm nursing!
D14 is a 14 day detox where you eat 5-6 meals a day, or when you're hungry, avoiding toxic foods such as gluten, dairy, caffeine, sugar, alcohol, processed foods, etc. It also includes drinking a homemade detox drink 3x a day with items bought from your grocery store. This detox drink cleanses your liver and helps to metabolize fat allowing your body to reset, functioning, and looking how it should naturally. In addition to eating whole clean foods, avoiding toxic foods, and drinking your detox drink, D14 incorporates my favorite whole food nutrition powdered produce in a capsule. You eat this every day, and drink a DELICIOUS whole food shake every day. One of my FAVORITE parts is the online FaceBook support group. We will have 20-50+ people ready to D14 at a time and it is such an amazing community where we share recipes, thoughts, struggles, accomplishments, workouts, and so much more. It's wonderful to be a part of a group of people committing to health.
I have completed the D14 MANY times and am starting a fresh D14 today as we speak! I can say first hand, that after the 14 days is over, there is a clarity you have that feels amazing! Cravings are gone, bloating in the belly is gone, energy is high, sleep is better, mood is more stable, which is a biggie when you have kids. After the 14 days, I go into maintenance mode where I maintain the healthy habits that I've practiced but still allow myself a treat now and then. However, I can honestly say that I don't crave junkie foods after those 14 days. Then I simply repeat the D14 every 4 months! Being a busy on-the-go mom, even planning meals is easy on the D14, especially with the meal plans that are incorporated in the FaceBook support group. I also know that my nursing baby boy is getting the most nutrient dense milk that he can. I have fallen in LOVE with this program and highly recommend it to anyone looking for a cleanse but not wanting to starve themselves of nutrients or food. It's time for me to go DETOX!!
