This allows us to become a community, and nothing yields results more than having a support system.
In this introductory video we will review what to expect over the next 21 days as we detox our bodies from refined sugars and processed foods. We will go over the grocery lists, meal plans, recipes, and guidelines and explain how your body will be changing and how you can expect to feel as a result. No more feeling like crap, we will explain why all those addicting processed foods are so bad and how they affect the way we look and feel.
We have all heard the terms proteins, fats, and carbohydrates but what do they really mean, what happens in the body when we eat them, and how does each of these benefit us? We explain the difference between simple and complex carbohydrates, complete and incomplete proteins, and differentiate between the various kinds of fat: trans, saturated, and monounsaturated. We believe that in order to be truly successful in this journey you have to know why you’re eating these foods instead of just knowing which foods to eat. Knowledge is power!
We all go to the grocery store and have a pretty good idea of what foods we’re going to buy. But how much do we really know about how these foods are made and processed? In this video, we will go over everything you need to know about reading food labels and understanding ingredients. We will discuss the term "cheat meal" and how to incorporate it into your week without letting it hinder your progress. In fact, we'll give you eight reasons why an occasional cheat meal could actually be an aid and catalyst to weight loss.
In our final video, we teach you how to take all the tools and knowledge you’ve learned throughout the program and apply it to your daily life. We will give you tips on how to dine with family and friends, with work colleagues and on vacation.
