Last week, I started my full-out, no-holds-barred commitment to getting back in shape and losing the 10 pounds I had gained since my accident.  With the accident 2 months ago, I had been unable to work out and with that came a downward spiral of eating more.  I am just beginning to work out again now and with that my healthy food choices come easier.  By staying true to the cleanse I was able to drop 10 pounds in 2 weeks. I decided I was done with the steady incline of the scale and took control. The power that making up your mind brings is endless. What you believe in, will happen.  

The amazing power your belief and mind have over a situation, outcome, or overall life is fascinating.  Point in case, recently we read a case study that certainly attests to the power of belief.  

Anthony Robbin’s Unlimited Power describes a case of a psychiatric patient with a split personality. One of her personalities was diabetic, while another was not. Her blood sugars would be nor...

Yes, we do say stay clear of coffee when on our cleanse program, but for sustainable living a cup of Joe every once in a while may not be all bad (anyone who has been around Carrie knows she has a strong affinity towards a freshly brewed cup).

We know its very hard for many of you to quit the liquid black gold during our program, but there are is a good reason why.  Primarily the motivation  for making you suffer through a week without coffee is hydration. Many of us drink it because it has caffeine, which acts as a diuretic and forces the body to expel water.

Start a good habit of waiting until you pee clear 2-3 times before you drink a caffeinated beverage. 

Think of your body as a swimming pool. When you drink coffee you unplug a drain at the bottom of the pool. As you drink water all day to fill your pool, the water unfortunately empties through the open drain.  Many of us think we are hydrating, but in reality water is not being absorbed like it should be in the large intes...

Although healthy food choices are a key to healthy living, it’s also important to eat the correct portion of food.  Pounds appear easier and easier with each year we age. Cutting calories is one easy way to stop weight gain.  Eating an extra 100 calories a day than you burn can cause you to gain 10 pounds a year, (which is so easy to do - add a small cup of coffee from Dunkin Donuts with cream and sugar and at 120 calories - you just added that 10 pounds) whereas eating 100 calories less than usual may result in a loss of 10 pounds.  Although the cleanse helps you cut those calories and still enjoy eating on cleanse weeks - this blog centers on tips to reduce calories on off cleanse weeks.  

During the time that I (Carrie) was losing my weight, from time to time, Andy and I would go out for lunch and the good Italian in me would always clear my plate.  I wouldn’t stop eating until I had finished, while Andy would never finish and always leave 4 or 5 bites.  It always both...
