Feeling like you totally lost track of healthy eating and working out due to stress, emotional eating or temptations during the holiday season? Patricia felt the same way… here’s what she did about it:
"My diet has been pretty healthy for quite some time now - but having lots of stress at work and christmas time threw me out of balance. I ate out a lot, didn't take time to sit down and enjoy my meals and craved a lot of sweets (like a looot).
I also feel like that’s partly due to emotional eating… I just tend to snack when I’m sad, stressed or bored."
Emotional eating is actually very common and most of us rely on food to change the way we feel. Try to listen to your body and nourish it with the nutrients it needs to diminish cravings!
"To get back on track and create new healthy eating habits I decided to give the #yourfreshstart Detox a go - and commit for 5 days. The bundle comes with a detox plan, 3 YSF mixes and planning sheets - which are super handy by the way!
What can I say - it was really the fresh start I needed. The recipes were easy and delicious, I wasn't hungry and took the time to enjoy my meals consciously again. I tried not to snack in between to reconnect with my body and learn to listen to its signals again."
We recommend being mindful about snacking during the detox plan, so your body can focus on detoxing and is not constantly tied up with digestion. But nevertheless, you should always listen to your body and refuel when needed.
"I tried lots of the tips from the e-Book and actually implemented many of them in my routine - like for example dry-brushing and walking more!
I even do a Detox Monday now every week to reset my body once in a while. On these days I remake the recipes from the detox plan and I really enjoy starting fresh after having a lazy weekend full of food.
I use the Super Green Mix in my smoothies regularly to get in more greens, strenghten my immune system and support my body with detoxing."
The Super Green Mix with organic wheatgrass, barley grass, moringa leaves, baobab fruit, spirulina and chlorella. All these greens additionally contain chlorophyll, which cleans the blood and draws toxins, like heavy metals, herbicides, pesticides and environmental toxins, out of your body. They also increase oxygen content in your body and promotes digestive health. Greens are essential building blocks of any healthy and vibrant diet!
"I don't crave unhealthy food and sweets as much anymore and actually want to eat healthy and fresh food. My body loves it!"
