Fruit & Veggie Cleanse

Fruit & Veggie Cleanse

Every once in awhile I like to switch things up and motivate myself to lose more than a pound or 2 for the week - which is my current norm through proper eating habits. That being said, this week I've decided to only consume raw fruits and vegetables for lunch and dinner.
  Here are 4 tips on how to join me and try it for yourself:
  • Purchase A Veggie Tray - This stems back to my bulk buying advice. Purchasing a veggie tray from Sam's Club or Costco will allow you to have fresh choices all week long without breaking the bank. Pre-sort all of the veggies into ziplock bags for easy grabbing. A good girlfriend taught me this trick when she sends her hubby off each week.

  • Stock Up On Fresh Fruit - Fruit is a great source of sugar that your body needs. It is also low in calories, and high in water. Like vegetables, eat as much as you like!

  • Increase Your Water Intake...Even More - Considering the type of food that you'll be "restricted" to, be sure to consume a great deal of water throughout the day. This helps even more with the cleansing process.
  • Lean Meat - Can't commit to 100% raw fruits and veggies all day? That's ok! You have to start somewhere, and I'm all about improvising versus giving up altogether. Throw in a piece of lean chicken or fish with your raw fruit or vegetable to satisfy protein cravings.
Remember, it's only for a week and you may just like it! Cleansing is a great choice for those looking to jumpstart your weightloss, clear your skin, and overall feel great. Let me know how things go for your fruit & veggie cleanse, and what some of your favorite fruits and vegetables are.
