Kickstart Your Cleanse


There are so many different cleanses out there. Before making your choices be aware of these 3 factors.

1. Is the cleanse requiring you to eliminate beneficial things from your diet, i.e. lemonade, grapefruit, juice cleanses that all require that you consume nothing else? You are not doing a healthy cleanse in this manner. You are, instead, starving your body of vital nutrients and minerals.

2. Is the cleanse time specific? The 48 hour, 72 hour, or week long cleanse is a fallacy.  A true cleansing is not time specific.  You want to create an ongoing cleanse of any toxins that slip unaware into your body, not just a short term “scrub” to get them out for a little while.

3. Is the cleanse target specific? The colon cleanse and other such organ specific cleanses don’t focus on the overall body.  Toxins get stored all over the body, not just in one specific location.  Don’t let the fads deceive you.

The healthiest cleanse is one that cleanses your entire body of toxins permanently over a long span of time.  It increases your metabolism, changes your habits, and improves your overall health.

My personal preference is Take Shape for Life™ for food-borne toxin cleansing.  It provides the daily requirement of vitamins and nutrients, fuels the body, and encourages the flushing of fat and toxins. It can be used as long as needed and the program instructs and teaches healthy lifestyle habits for the long term. You can learn more here.

For all other toxin cleansing, I prefer essential oils and megavitamins. These encourage cellular cleansing and repair and toxin flushing at the cellular level (another place insidious toxins can reside and most cleanses do not address). Here is more information.

Educate yourself.  Avoid the fads. They are all hype, want your hard earned cash, and give you nothing in return. Do your research. You can create the healthy lifestyle you want and live a life free from toxin based illnesses.


About leisatwatkins

In May 2011, I hit an all time low in my life and an all time high in my weight. I was 199 pounds and the idea of hitting 200 scared me. I had tried every known diet, HCG, Weight Watchers, Jenny Craig, Atkins, the grapefruit diet. I'd even tried Phen-phen when I was younger and Dexatrim before that. While I'd lose a little weight, I would always gain it back and then more. I knew the yo-yo dieting was not healthy for my body and it was definitely wreaking havoc on my mental wellness. I didn't know what to do and I was looking into taking drastic surgical measures to lose weight. That's when a friend of mine told me his story about losing over 200 pounds without pills, surgery, or starving himself. Not only did he lose the weight, but he kept it off. What did I have to lose? I asked him to share the secret with me. Now, only six short months later, I weigh 140 lbs and am working on losing 5 more. That will put me back to my weight that I was in HS, college, and before I had children. And I've done it with my friend's help as my Health Coach, without starving or even exercising, although I love to walk everyday. I haven't felt hungry at all in this process. How many "diets" can say that? I feel fantastic! I've felt great since the first week on this program. Let me be very clear about this. This is NOT a diet. This is not something you do for a little while, lose the weight, then go back to your old eating habits. This program is a life changing plan to help you eat healthier, make food choices that are tailored to your body, and bring you to a state of optimal physical health. If like me, you are tired of diets that don't work, then let me show you a life style plan that does.
