It’s that time of year again and many of us are creating our goals for 2016. I’m more apt to create goals rather than resolutions, as resolutions don’t last much longer than the middle of January. What are your health goals for next year?
We have a few options to help you get back on track or create a whole new lifestyle plan, whichever is most relevant for you.
My personal goal? Kick sugar to the curb (yes, again!). I am not good at having just a little bit of sugar, so when I ate most of a Terry’s Dark Chocolate Orange in early December, I knew I would be battling my cravings this month. A week of vacation in Florida, where the treats are cheap, didn’t help much. Besides the sugar, the rest of my diet is in tune with the 30 Day Whole Body Detox, so I won’t be doing this program again until the spring, as I always partake in the yearly program with my clients. I’ll be starting the 5 Day RESET Jumpstart program on Monday Jan 4th. The traditional program is a 5 day program that comes in a box, and includes all of your meal replacements for 3 meals a day plus 2 protein snacks and your USANA HealthPak of vitamins (my favorite!). However, this program contains dairy, so I do a modified program with the Nutrimeal Free (included in the detox) and the Berry Nutty bars (optional item for the detox). Pricing depends on whether or not you want the dairy free version. The results? Kicking the sugar and carb cravings to the curb and for many people, a 4-5 lb weight loss in 5 days.
Ready to take a on a longer challenge? The good news is that there a group of people who are planning to do the full 30 Day Whole Body Detox this month. Winter is a more challenging time to do this program, however with the support of a program coach, you will be able to stick to the program and find your own success. Use the recipes from the Fall Supplement (included with your program purchase) and visit Oh She Glows for more inspiration – her recipes are vegan and gluten-free, so they are in line with the program for the most part. She recently posted this Hot Detox Tonic which I will be trying tomorrow morning. Most paleo recipes are also in line with the detox as well.
Finally, if the detox program is not a challenge you’re ready to undertake for the winter, we have another 30 day program called the 30 Day Transformation Challenge. This program focuses on 2 meal replacements a day, with 2 healthy snacks and one low glycemic meal, usually dinner. It also comes with a guidebook and grocery list as well and the pricing is similar to the detox. You can choose to be dairy-free and gluten-free on this program as well.
