Don’t miss the awesome giveaway at the end!
Urban Girl Wellness
offered me the opportunity to try their 14 Day Fresh Start Cleanse
a few weeks back. I said yes because it’s not a total detox (I need my food!) but more of a reset button to healthy eating. I can definitely use that! I immediately signed up on their website and selected my flavor options.
My package came yesterday and I sent an email saying that today would be the first day of the 14 day program. The timing works well because in exactly two weeks from now I’m leaving for Vancouver!
Every day I will receive emails with what I should eat for the next day and other related tips, recipes, videos, etc.
The first five days are a RESET where I eat mostly the meal shakes, protein bars, a little fruit and unlimited dressing. I have some long workouts planned during these next five days so, as directed, I will add in an extra shake if I need it, in addition to all my produce!
From the website:
The 1st 5 days of your program will go like this: Each day for 5 days you drink 3 delicious and filling shakes at mealtime, eat a yummy nutrition bar for both your morning and afternoon snacks, plus one serving of fruit and unlimited raw vegetables anytime during the day. You will feel full and not hungry during these 5 days! While on the 5 Day RESET, you also drink eight to ten glasses of water and exercise moderately for 20-30 minutes per day. Those who want to lose weight may lose as much as 4-5 pounds on the RESET, and the fat comes off the waist first. But the most important result of the RESET is that it puts the body in a healthy state so that it is easier to make healthy food choices.
I’ll blog my experience as I go through this. What I hope for is a two week reset to my habits and cravings and to feel balanced, healthy and strong throughout the program and after. Here we go!
But there’s more…!
