Questions about detox…
Detox can be an amazing experience, but knowing the ins and outs of the process is so beneficial to a successful cleanse.

These questions have been compiled during my work with thousands of clients. You might be asking yourself some of these questions as you embark on this clean living adventure. Make sure to refer to this section before you start your detox - and during - if concerns come up.


Top 5 Energy Boosters To Add Into Your Life
"I don't have enough energy to get through my day."
"I crash around
3:00 every afternoon."
" By the time I get home from work, there is NO way I have energy left to exercise."
"I wish I could keep up with the kids. I just don't have the energy to play with them."

It seems that lack of energy is an epidemic in North America. We have so much on our plates, and it is overwhelming even to think of getting it all done.
Overwhelm has taken over!
Most likely you know that your calendar is never going to be empty, and your to-do lists will never be short. You may want to make a few simple changes to boost your energy so you can everything done and more.

Think of your body as an automobile. You need to fuel up your car by using premium gas just like you need to fuel your body with whole foods. You can wait until the gas gauge is on empty before going to the gas station to refill... but your car won't run as efficiently.

Your body is the same way. It is very resilient. It will work for you unconditionally. But after a certain point, the gas tank hits empty. Your body becomes exhausted.

Here are the top 5 ways to get more energy and keep your tank full:

1. Drink water throughout the day. The first sign of dehydration is fatigue. Try beginning your day with a glass of water and take sips throughout the day to stay hydrated. Anytime you crave sweets, try having a glass of water instead. If you're thirsty, that means you're already dehydrated.

2. Eat a healthy carbohydrate/protein based snack about half hour before you tend to start losing steam. This will help get rid of the 3pm slump. Try lentil soup with rice crackers, salsa, celery and hummus, apples and almond butter, or trail mix with lots of seeds and nuts. Build your snacks with a good fat (ex. avocado), good carb (ex. veggies and fruit), and good protein ( ex. nuts, quinoa).

3. Increase your iron intake. Iron is a trace element which gives you energy and helps your immune system function. You'll get iron from nuts, sunflower seeds, pumpkin seeds, brown rice, millet, and those dark leafy greens like kale and spinach.

4. Eat foods that are ALIVE. Try replacing your crackers and chips with vegetables and fruits. Their energy levels will give YOU energy. Pick the foods that look most alive and fresh in the grocery store. Try carrots, snap peas, celery, juicy tomatoes, spinach salad, strawberries, broccoli, oranges, or squash. These veggies and fruits have all the vitamins and minerals your body needs for energy.

9. Get more rest and relax. Stress makes us tired. Very tired. So does lack of sleep. You have to make sure to get some downtime in order to give your body a chance to rejuvenate. Instead of pushing your body past its breaking point each day, why not listen to it and give in every once in a while? Try taking a nap (my favorite), taking a walk, reading a book, sleeping in late, getting a massage... these will all increase your energy. AND they are fun, too. J

All of these strategies can be practiced while doing a 10 day detox. As you clear toxins from your body, you will be able to energize as well as form new habits with your food and managing stress. Ready to try a detox and feel amazing?

My Review :
Although I did not do the full detox in the book, I did take many of these tips and implement them in my daily routine.  I traded some of my "go to" snacks for healthier alternatives and my favorite soda for water or sugar-free tea.  I have already lost 4 pounds in the past few days just by replacing some of the bad for me quick grabs for healthier and more nutritious options.  I do feel a bit better and seem to have a little more energy than usual.  I plan to continue this and after the kids go back to school, I plan to try the detox as well when I have less distractions around daily.

I like the practical advice and step by step instructions in the book.  Lisa's Renewal guide shows how to live a healthy life by taking care of yourself first.  Using Step by step processes from detox to easing back into a regular eating routine.  A good book to have on hand to give weight loss and healthy eating a kick start.
