Life is wonderful and amazing, it offers us a lot of opportunities, but we can't enjoy them if we are not healthy. Our health must be our first priority in life. It is a shame we are not educated in that way. We are told to go to school, then go to work to get money, and have a family. They forgot to teach us to watch what we eat!
Nowadays, products have harmful chemicals in order to make them last longer and extend their shelf life, and animals are not fed right and are also given hormones in order to make them grow bigger or produce more by products (milk, eggs, etc.). That's great for the big corporations and their owners because they are making more money, but it is terrible for us, the consumers. It is crazy because we end up consuming all of those chemicals and hormones.
The good thing is now people are paying attention to what they eat, for example we see people starting to eat organic vegetables and fruits, people choosing grass fed meats and free range poultry, and more people even started to become vegetarian or vegan! Not just that, people are also looking at the ingredients in their skincare products, body cream, soap, shampoo, etc, because most of them are harmful for our skin. The fact is that we are what we eat, but also what we absorb through our skin. When we eat, our organs are in charge of filtering out the bad things before digestion, but our skin doesn't have a filter system, everything that we put on it is absorbed in approximately 25 seconds.
In this order of ideas, a friend told me about this botanically based company whose products are vegan certified, non GMO, gluten free, cruelty-free, no animal product or byproducts. Free of parabens (linked to breast cancer), mineral oil or petroleum, phthalates, sodium laurel sulfate and other hormone disrupting chemicals. I was amazed at how this company cares about health, wellness and beauty from the inside out. After checking out all the great products they have, I couldn't help it and I just joined them because I knew I could help people choose better options for their body and skin.
The first thing I decided to try was their nutrition program called "30 days Healthy Living", which is designed to detox your body, make your digestive system work better and prepare your body to eat healthier. The program is based in plant-powered nutritional products that provide all the nutrients that we need. The products are vegan and gluten-free certified, they are blend with premium vitamins, minerals, botanicals, antioxidants, enzymes, prebiotics, and probiotics for maximum product effectiveness.
The challenge is made twice per month during the whole year, which means that if you are interested in doing it, there is no excuse not to make it lol. Once you sign up, you will be included in a private group on Facebook, which is a supporting team who will be there to help you through the 30 days. They will give you recipes, tips and cheer you up. Your job is being disciplined and focus in your objective: detox your body, learn to eat healthier and maintain or lose weight.
Hey! I am not going to lie and say that it is an easy challenge, but is not impossible. The first week is hard, but after it, it feels great. We are not required to skip meals, just to eat healthier and maybe replace one meal per a protein shake and exercise a minimum of 30 minutes per day. After my 30 days, I am feeling great. I jogged 25 minutes per day, I did 5 minutes of abs and replaced one meal. At the end, I lost 12lbs (5,4kg), my digestive system is way better than before and my skin feels amazing.
Once you detox your body and learn how to eat healthier most of your health issues will improve and you will lose or maintain your weight, depending on what you want.
The detox program contains the following products:
* 60 servings protein shake mix for meals. You can choose chocolate, vanilla or one of each.
* 60 servings energy fizz sticks. You can choose pomegranate, citrus or one of each.
* 40 servings of daily detox tea.
* 30 servings of daily probiotics, prebiotics and digestive enzymes.
* 7 packages of 7-Day whole body cleanse.
* 30 day supply of Fiber Boost.
