I have learned SO many important details about nutrition since beginning my journey with Arbonne.
Completing the #Arbonne30, their 30 Days to Healthy Living program, was an eye opener and complete game changer for me. NOTHING had changed my physique in 30 years. Truly. No diet, no amount of exercise, three lovely kids, eating well, and thankfully a fairly stress-free life.
Yet, after 30 days of removing the top five allergens/foods high in alkalinity causing inflammation (wheat, dairy, sugar, coffee and alcohol) I saw a dramatic increase in afternoon energy, loss of sugar cravings, better sleep and yes! pounds lost. Using the Arbonne products made the whole process SO easy.
And now I have a term for this process; Cellular Cleansing.
What is this Cellular Cleansing you ask? Excellent question! First of all "pesticides, fertilizers, hormones, air pollutants, preservatives and other chemicals enter our body through foods or the environment. Alternative medicine practitioners believe these substances accumulate in your cells, causing fatigue, gastrointestinal problems and weight gain. A homemade cellular cleanse eliminates these toxins and restores good health.
Homemade body cleanses restrict the types of foods you eat. Cut all processed foods from your diet for the duration of the cleanse. Replace your typical diet with fresh fruits, vegetables and whole grains. Eliminate all white flour, dairy, caffeine, alcohol and sugar for the duration of the cleanse. Choose organic foods to eliminate intake of pesticides and other toxins." Thanks Aurora Harklute.
According to Dr. Daniel Pompa, "The average fad diet or clean eating program lasts for a few days or weeks, but regular cellular cleansing is a lifestyle change. Dramatic shifts in health may not occur overnight (although people have lost 5 to 30lbs in a month, have come off medications, and improved their overall quality of life using the Arbonne30), but cleansing on a cellular level is the only way to get real and lasting results in your health."
I had no idea. I understand clean eating, but not to this extent. And by continuing to eat clean, let's say following the program 80/20, really does keep the energy up, the cravings at bay and the weight off. Wicked cool.
