Why real food?
Real food is great for your body, supports farmers, and is gentle on the planet. It also helps to eliminate toxins from your organs, which strengthens your immune system and improves your metabolism. Eating seasonal fruits and vegetables (and a few exotic treats) will prepare your body for the cooler fall months and help you to resist sugar cravings as the holidays approach.
Is the challenge right for me?
If you experience low energy, indigestion, skin problems, insomnia, or just feel like you weigh a little more than you’d like, this challenge will help you to rejuvenate and energize. It’s a gentle way to learn about seasonally detoxifying the body, and the perfect way to get happy and healthy before the holidays.
What results can I expect?
Eating real food – and only real food – can have a dramatic impact on your health and overall wellbeing. In addition to improved digestion, reduced toxicity, and improved immunity, you may also feel lighter, more energized, better rested, and more aware of what foods best fuel your body. Many people will lose weight during the challenge and others may experience better sleep, more mental clarity, and a steadier emotional state.
A friend of mine did a juice cleanse – is this like that?
Nope, not really. You will be eating delicious, healthy, and fresh meals to nourish your body. But, like other cleanses, you will also gently eliminate toxins, boost your immune system, and lose excess weight. The challenge is really a starting point – you’ll learn to create amazing meals and find ways to de-stress so you can stay happy and healthy beyond the 10 day challenge.
Wait, I have to give up coffee? and red wine?
Well, it's really up to you. To experience the full benefits of the challenge it's best to choose non-caffeinated beverages and abstain from alcohol for the full 10 days. If you're a caffeine addict you can start to taper the amount you drink about a week before the challenge so you don't suffer from headaches or decide that you'll just have one cup a day (but without cream or sugar...!). Some people may choose to allow themselves 2-3 glasses of wine, beer, or spirits over the 10 days, it's really up to you.
