Let me answer that question with some questions (don’t you just love that) – actually, it will help you better understand the importance of doing a detox and why we’re excited to kick off the Summer Season…
It’s Spring and you really want to get healthier and finally lose that excess weight before the Bikini Season hits, don’t you?
Well, what’s holding you back?
If you answered “YES!” to any of those questions, well my friend, you’re not alone. I’m right there with you. So is my wife, and business partner, Jill. And, so are MILLIONS of other Americans who struggle to lose weight and keep it off.
"I have plenty of energy and none of the low blood sugar jitters I usually have a few times a day.
I'm truly proud of how strong I have been in resisting all of the temptations at work. The Support within the Program helps tremendously. My coworkers are truly impressed and one is interested in participating in the next round of the Detox!"
Jeans fit much better now. Very much enjoyed the healthy recipes suggested . I did not experience the low energy periods I would get before, especially in mid-afternoon.
“The Detox program was an eye opening experience. I found it very insightful and educational. I really appreciated the daily tips, recipes and the Facebook Group interactions were.
"I got better sleep, less cravings for alcohol,sugar and caffeine and more mental clarity.”
"The daily tips and weekly check ins were perfect motivations and provided ways to get support."
Jill, my future wife asked me the first time she stopped by my place when we lived in San Diego (Geez has that been 16 years ago?):
Jill: “Did you have a party last night?” As she looked a recycle bin overflowing with Coke cans.
Me: (Que fully embarrassed tone) “Uhhhh, no I drank those.”
Jill: “Wow, you like coke that much? How long did it take you to drink those?”
Me: “At least a week.” I lied, probably more like 3 days.
Until she pointed it out to me directly I never really thought about it. I didn’t enjoy soda all that much it was just what I did since I was in my teens.
When she said that to me I was at a point where I could eat or drink practically anything and it never affected my athletic performance much. My health? Well my nutrition and choices were absolutely rotting me from the inside.
For as long as I can remember, I’ve loved to move and be active. In the past as a collegiate athlete my practice and game regimens were intense and I could pretty much eat and drink what I wanted when I wanted. As I transitioned from playing in organized athletics to just an active lifestyle I noticed something. Those extra calories seemed to stick around longer and it showed. I also felt much more tired more often…
So I refocused, worked out like a madman and practically eliminated all fat from my diet. I “lived” on egg whites & oatmeal for breakfast, tuna & rice for lunch, and chicken & broccoli for dinner. I tried more protein shakes and weight loss supplements than you can imagine…
All the while, never achieving the long-lasting weight loss or stamina I was after. Sure, I dropped weight. Hell, I even got super-lean and looked stronger than when I was playing collegiate level sports. But, in the end, the weight always came back and my strength just wasn’t there, the weight got harder and harder to lose each time, and my stamina would go way down.. Until now…
Today, I look and feel better than ever, and it’s all because I learned to “kick the habit.” By the way, did you know that sugar has been shown in recent studies to be MORE addictive than cocaine! Yup, sugar is probably the worst “drug” on the market because it’s addictive, legal, and encouraged…plus, it’s in everything!
But, it’s not just sugar that’s the enemy…
Each and every day of our lives we are exposed to other harmful toxins in our food and environment. These come in the form of food additives, air pollution, plastics, skin “care” products, soaps, dry cleaning, and hundreds of others.
These toxins can lead to a host of less than pleasant problems:
More serious conditions that may benefit from a proper detox program include:
That’s a pretty ugly list of issues. I want no part of any of them, and neither do you…
