I often see people posting pictures of themselves going on green smoothies and green juice feasting to kick start their weight loss.
If you haven't tried it yourself, you've probably at least heard of green juicing and green smoothies.
People typically get into it to cleanse, alkalize, lose weight or simply to get more veggies into their diet.
"They" tell us that greens are super healthy for us, so naturally green juicing and making green smoothies seem like an easy (more palatable) way to ge…
Cleansing is often thought of as a fad.
But cleansing isn’t a new concept at all.
We've been fasting and detoxing since the dawn of civilization.
I created this sweet little compilation of cleansing throughout history with a list of resources for you to follow up with.
An early account of fasting is in the “Essene Gospel of Peace,” translated by Aramaic by E. B. Szekey in the 1930s. In this account, Jesus encourages fasting and instructs lepers to do enemas.

Before I had my son I weighed 125lbs.
After the birth my weight went up and down and then settled at 155lbs despite no change in my diet.
I ate a whole foods vegetarian diet before I had him, during the pregnancy and after that too.
I just couldn't understand how nothing had changed in my diet, and yet my body did not return to my pre-pregnancy weight.
So after 2 and half years of being annoyed at the extra weight, I did the only thing I knew how at the time, I did the 'mas…
If you are stiff, your muscles hurt and your joints ache, your body has a message for you.
You are toxic, acidic and dehydrated.
You need to flush those acids from your tissues, eliminate toxic inflammatory foods from your diet and nourish your muscles and joints through movement - yoga is ideal in this regard.
Have you ever noticed that a lot of retreats combine raw foods with yoga?
That's because raw foods are cleansing and they help flush acids out of your tissues and joints - in other wo…
This is part of my story of how I discovered that dieting doesn't work and what actually does.
The attached photo is a reverse before and after photo.
It's more like an after, and after that photo.
I starved myself to fit into my grad dress.
This first photo of me is after having starved myself down for grad.
The second photo is at some kind of community event soon after having gained back about 15lbs.
I still remember feeling especially not good about myself that day - ashamed to be seen …
Have you ever bought one of those health food store detox kits?
One thing that I know about detox (with a lot of experience customizing my own food based cleanses) is that you can add as many herbs and supplements as you want to a cleansing regime, but if you don’t make specific fundamental shifts in your diet and lifestyle at the same time, any benefits you get from the program will be short lived at best.
And really the results you can get are pretty minimal, because the dietary changes thes…
Cleansing is the only way to get quick results with weight loss while getting healthier than you’ve ever been - in contrast to dieting and calorie restriction which just depletes your nutrition and screws up your hormones - thus making it harder and harder to lose weight.
In fact with dieting and calorie restriction, you not only gain the weight back - but more often than not, you gain back more than you started with because reducing calories for prolonged periods of time, reduces your metabol…
