When my diet starts to go south (i.e. more sweets, processed, fatty foods, drink less water) I notice:
- More facial acne
- Greater water retention
- Feeling of sluggishness
- Cravings of even more bad food!
In order to get back into the swing of things with a healthy diet, I like to wipe the plate clean and start fresh…literally! For one week, I eat non or minimally processed meals and drink cleansing beverages.
A sample of one day’s menu is:
- Lemon Water
- Blueberries & Blackberries
- Salad: (walnuts, craisins, lettuce, orange pepper. Salad dressing: mustard and olive oil)
- Egg, Avocado & Tomato
- Lots of water!
When I cleanse my body I begin to crave candy less, experience a decreased desire for processed food, gain more energy, wake up more easily in the morning, notice fewer breakouts, and produce less facial oil and shine throughout the day.
This may seem like an unrealistic or intimidating diet to consume for a week. If you are nervous, try swapping one or two less-than-ideal food choices like a donut, for a healthy sweet-tooth satisfying banana.
I will be updating my progress with this new rejuvenating dietary cleanse and I’m sure I’ll be good as new in a week’s time!
