Eat Better, Feel Better
I used to think that the food I eat doesn’t really matter. As long as I include fruits and vegetables in my diet and I don’t eat too much sugar, that’s all I thought I needed to do in order to be healthy and feel good.
Now that I’m more aware of aging, I’m starting to think more about my health and my quality of life as I get older. I’m more worried about aches and pains that stick around longer and about my memory getting worse. My grandmother had dementia. Is there anything I can do to maintain good health as I age or is my health only going to get worse?
Eating healthy is hard. You have to form new habits around eating, which takes time and effort.
You have to plan meals, buy only healthy foods at the grocery store, and stop treating yourself. You have to give up comfort foods and drinks, and it just isn’t any fun. Who wants to do that?
But what’s the alternative? You can keep doing what you’re doing, eating what you’re eating, feeling how you’re feeling, and probably feeling even worse down the road.
Does this sound familiar?
- You’re always tired and no amount of sleep seems to help, if you can get a full night’s sleep.
- Sometimes it feels like your body is falling apart and the pills you’re taking aren’t making you feel any better. In fact, you wonder if why you feel bad is from their side effects.
- If this is how you’re feeling now, how will you feel in 10 or 20 years? You’re afraid of what this will mean for you as you reach retirement and beyond. You don’t even want to think about it.
But what can you do about it? Isn’t this just the normal aging process that we have to accept?
No, you don’t. The good news is that 75% of the factors that determine your health in later life are not the aging process. Rather, they have to do with lifestyle.
This is good news because it means that we have a lot more control over our health and how we age than we may have thought.
You CAN live well, eat well, and feel fantastic.
Even better, reclaiming your health doesn’t have to mean eating tasteless or unappetizing meals, and you can heal yourself naturally without taking lots of pills.
But where and how do you start? There are plenty of fad diets out there that help with weight loss, but losing weight isn’t the whole story.
Losing weight can help you become healthier, but
- If a fad diet requires you to restrict calories, it’s hard to maintain and you may not be getting all the nutrients you need to heal and feel good. This is why most people lose weight while they’re on them but then gain it all back and then some because they can’t maintain it.
- Fad diets can give you too much of foods that don’t agree with you that you may not be aware of, which can make your symptoms worse, even though those foods are generally considered healthy.
- Fad diets don’t necessarily cleanse your body in a healthy way so that it can heal and recalibrate.
There’s a better way of achieving optimal health without going on fad diets.
- You knew exactly which foods typically cause health issues, such as fatigue, aches and pains, headaches, and other allergy symptoms
- You had a healthy way of excluding them without feeling like you’re eating like a bunny
- You could eat well, lose weight, and feel better in as little as 3 weeks
- You were getting the nutrients you need to heal and cleanse your body
- You were eating a diet consisting of foods you’re familiar with, many of which you’re likely already eating
- Meal plans are done for you, so you don’t have to wonder what you’re going to eat every day
- You don’t have to run to the grocery store at the last minute for missing ingredients
- You don’t have to spend hours figuring out your weekly meals and then creating the grocery list
- You don’t have to spend hours in the kitchen every day
- You get to prepare simple meals using simple ingredients and simple instructions
- You don’t have to search for recipes every day
- You get healthy balanced meals full of nutritious ingredients that taste delicious
Introducing the 3-Week Anti-Inflammatory Cleanse
The 3-Week Anti-Inflammatory Cleanse will help you remove foods from your diet that may be causing inflammation in your body and that are behind the symptoms you’re experiencing. Reducing inflammation will help your body heal and put you on the path to optimal health.
Ready to start feeling better?
Eating healthy is hard. There are so many temptations at the grocery store, not to mention fast food chains and restaurants. Many of us think we’re eating healthy but we could be doing a lot better. How?
Many of us don’t know. Today, many diseases that we commonly associate with aging (cancer, Alzheimer’s, arthritis) are caused by inflammation. Inflammation can be controlled by the foods we eat.
How do you know what to eat to reduce inflammation and stave off the diseases of aging? The answer is simple: Eat a diet that reduces inflammation in your body.
How? Where do you start?
That’s why I created this 3-Week Anti-Inflammatory Cleanse. I did all the hard work --- the meal plans, grocery lists, and recipes --- for myself, my dad, and my clients. I set it up so that there’s no thinking involved. We’re all busy and finding the time and motivation to start something new is always a challenge.
With this cleanse, all you have to do is shop, cook, and eat your way to optimal health, now and as you age.
Are you wondering if this cleanse will work for YOU?
This cleanse is for you if:
- You have weight issues. You've been gaining weight, especially around your abdomen. You've tried dieting but this stubborn weight just won't come off.
- Your hormones are out of whack. You get moody, especially around that time of the month, and you have sleep issues: problems falling asleep, staying asleep, or both. You're also depressed and anxious.
- You have aches and pains, especially in your joints. You take painkillers, which help but only for a little while.
- Your digestive system is also out of whack. You get gas and bloating as well as constipation and diarrhea, which affects your mood.
- You get food cravings, especially for sugar. You feel better for a little while but then the depression or anxiety returns along with your cravings, and you keep gaining weight.
- You get breakouts on your skin. The over-the-counter products you're using don't seem to help much.
- Your brain is in a perpetual fog. You can't think clearly. You drink coffee and it may help a little bit but not much.
- You’re able to commit for 3 whole weeks
- You’re willing and ready to make a change
- You can commit to going grocery shopping once every week or two
- You have 30-60 minutes a day to cook all 3 meals
- You eat white meat and fish
Even though this cleanse is safe for most people, you will want to check with a healthcare professional if you have any underlying health conditions such as severe allergies or anaphylaxis to certain foods.
This cleanse is NOT for you if
- you're not prepared to change the food you eat for 3 weeks
- you're not open to trying new foods you haven't tried before
- you don't want to cook
- someone else does the cooking and they aren’t willing to change for 3 weeks
- you don’t have time to cook for 30-60 minutes every day
Are you ready to make the change that will change your life?
The best time to improve your health may have been 10 years ago. The next best time is right now!
Truth be told, when it comes to making positive changes in life, the hardest part is actually starting: getting around to it, making the change. Even when I tried to do this cleanse with my dad, it was on my to-do list for the longest time. It was something I would recommend to clients but had never done myself. I had all the usual excuses: I'm too busy, I can't find the time, it's too hard right now, maybe next week or next month, etc.
Finally I bit the bullet and decided I'm just going to start. And I'm so happy that I did! Not only do I now know what I'm recommending to clients, but it was life-changing for me too. I experienced many of the effects the cleanse promised: no more brain fog, more energy, better mood, and even some weight loss, which wasn't even a goal for me.
I realized that the most difficult part of doing this cleanse is actually starting. Once you start, you feel amazing and there's no going back. That got me thinking, how can I make it easier to start so more people will do it? That's why I put together this program of a 3-week anti-inflammatory cleanse comprising meal plans, recipes, and grocery lists. That way it's a no brainer! You still have to take the leap and start, but at least it's all laid out for you and there's no planning involved. It makes it much easier to just do it.
Frequently Asked Questions
How many people is it for?
- The cleanse is set up for two people.
What if I want to do the cleanse as a single person?
- You have several options. You can buy half the groceries, make half the amount of food, make the full amount of food and freeze what you don't eat so you can extend the cleanse past the 3 weeks, or select which recipes you want to prepare and buy only those groceries. You can also invite another single person to do the diet with you, split the cost, and have extra moral support.
What if I want to do the cleanse with my family?
- Buy double or triple the amount of groceries, depending on how many family members you have.
Is this cleanse appropriate for kids?
- Yes. It’s great to get kids started eating healthy at a young age.
Is it vegetarian?
- No. This diet includes chicken and fish. Many dishes are vegetarian.
Can I do this diet if I’m vegetarian?
- Chicken is on the menu once per week and fish -- twice per week. For most of these recipes it's pretty easy to substitute beans for fish or chicken, especially the stir-fries.
How much will groceries cost me?
- For the first week, groceries will cost about $200 (for two people) if you're starting from scratch, less if you already have some of the common ingredients. Groceries will cost less in weeks 2 and 3 because you will be reusing some of the ingredients.
What do I do if I have leftovers? I hate wasting food.
- I hate wasting food too. You can freeze your leftovers and eat them at a later date so you need to prepare less food; or you can eat them the next day and prolong the cleanse.
Do I have to cook 3 times a day? That’s a lot of time in the kitchen that I don’t have.
- You can make food ahead of time. The daily support emails tell you which foods you can prepare in advance to save time and effort. Also, the meal plans are set up so you eat dinner leftovers for lunch the next day. In addition, breakfast smoothies can be made in advance and kept in the freezer.
