Live Launch of the 30 Day Whole Body Detox 5th Edition

30 day whole body detox Last night was the LIVE launch of the 5th edition of the 30 Day Whole Body Detox. It was thrilling to see something I have envisioned for the last 4 years come to life! We’ve done events to launch the program every year, and this one was truly the most amazing – yet!

Our event took place at the Burlington Golf and Country Club, an ideal location overlooking Lake Ontario, and the sun was setting as we started the event – a great atmosphere for a seminar. For those who weren’t able to attend, we had a LIVE stream broadcasting across the globe! A huge thank you to Dieter Staudinger who had the vision to make the live stream happen. This meant that the event was also recorded, so you’ll see some of the videos on our website in the future.

My role was to share the details of the 30 Day Whole Body Detox program, the story behind the program and what’s new and exciting for 2016. The room was filled with many first time guests who had never done the program before, so there was a lot of information to be absorbed! Dr. Erica Mattia did an amazing job of sharing why we choose the USANA product line as our partner for this program and how each of the products is important during the program. Following Erica were our juicing gurus, Dieter & Rebecca, who shared their experience doing a 40 day juice cleanse and 8 reasons why it’s important to adding fresh vegetable juice to your diet and lifestyle. The juice chapter in the Recipe & Guidebook was added thanks to Dieter & Rebecca.

Following a short break, we welcomed our keynote speaker, Dr. Olinca Trejo, Naturopath. Dr. Trejo is the three-time Diamond award winner for the Burlington Post Reader’s Choice as the Best Naturopath in Burlington. Once a year, Dr. Trejo makes the time to speak to our group about the liver, the gut and toxins in our environment. She loves to stay current with all of the new research and so we’re always learning so much! She shared a lot about the connections between gut health and brain health, and how many medical conditions may now stem from what is going on with the bacteria in our gut. It was truly fascinating and a lot of information to take in. Dr. Trejo works with Doctors Naturae in Burlington, 905-336-9721.

The evening ended with an introduction to the coach’s program, followed by many raffle items. Thank you to those who donated items, included a copy of the Made with Love Cookbook by Kelly Childs & Erinn Weatherbie (to be picked up on launch date next week), A gift certificate for Bloom Organic Spa in Oakville, several Sensé skin care product donations from USANA Canada, plus a copy of The Health Home by Dr. Myron Wentz and David Wentz, and a copy of the international bestselling book, Juice Your Way to Health by Dieter Staudinger and Rebecca Reble.

Our group of detoxers starting on April 4th grew as well! Not to worry if that date doesn’t fit your schedule, we have groups starting every week in April and May, so we’ll find a date that works for you. You can order online or simply connect with your USANA distributor and program coach to order.

An Early Start This Year

Simple Vegetarian Chili from the 30 Day Whole Body Detox Recipe & Guidebook

Looks like a few of us will be starting early this year! Pat Birnie, veteran detoxer started over 2 weeks ago, all on her own. Myself (program founder) and Dr. Erica Mattia, Chiropractor and program designer, are starting tomorrow, on Tuesday March 29th, the same day as the live launch event here in Burlington.  I wasn’t planning on starting so soon but because I had already planned to make several of the recipes this week already, I decided to give it a go! I will have to make another trip to the grocery store to pick up the ingredients to make fresh juice however, as that wasn’t yet on my radar today.

Tonight, I’m printing out some of the bonuses from the program, including the pre and post detox program checklist. Even though I’m the founder, I still do the program as I were a client – and I commit to it to the same degree. This year will be my 5th year completing the program and let me tell you, it gets easier and easier every year! I made a decision to give up alcohol (with the exception of a few special events here and there) in August 2015, so that part of the program won’t be as hard. I do still enjoy REV3 powder in my morning shake, a small dose of caffeine from green tea, white tea and black tea. This product is actually allowed on the program for those who have a serious caffeine addiction but for me, it’s best if I cut it out altogether.

My biggest challenge has always been SUGAR. I have a serious addiction to sugar. It only takes a few bars of chocolate (even the dark chocolate) to send me into a sugar craving frenzy! I shared how badly I was addicted to sugar 2 years ago before I did the detox program that year. It literally saved my life as I was slipping into a depression – and it was due to the sugar addiction. I’m sure that there is a link between those who have been diagnosed at one time or another with depression and sugar addiction, as there is a definite link. Even after having only a little bit of Easter chocolate, I am already feeling it affect my mood and energy – hence my desire to start the detox as soon as possible.

Much like Diet Coke, which I was addicted to for years, I cannot even handle a taste. Sugar is very dangerous for me, and I know that when I choose to eat it (because now I can make the choice), I tend to quickly crave it again. And I use my lifestyle strategies including the 30 Day Whole Body Detox, to quickly break the cycle. Perhaps after this year’s program I’ll be able to resist sugar for even longer. I find that after the program, my sugar cravings are gone and my desire for chocolate is diminished. I am very proud of myself for having resisted eating Eggies this year. These candy coated chocolate eggs have been my nemesis for YEARS. I knew that having just one would set me off. It was VERY hard to resist temptation, but I stayed strong and Easter is over so they will be gone for another 10 months or so, thankfully.

These are my reasons for doing the detox program every year. What about you? Are you a veteran of the program? How many times have you done the program? What are your program goals this year? Share with us in the comments.

What Are You Most Looking Forward to This Year?

I asked our veteran detoxers: What are you most looking forward to for this year’s 30 Day Whole Body Detox?

For me, it’s cutting out sugar. I am (thankfully) not addicted to it again, but I find that even a bit of sugar makes me feel awful. When I do the detox, I don’t even cheat because I’ve made the commitment to the program. – Julie

I am so looking forward to the new addition cause the program keeps me focused and mindful of what I am putting into my body and with every day into the program my body gets stronger, my mind clearer and my energy is incredible!! Not to mention the amazing recipes…especially my fav the BUDDHA BOWL!! – Stacey

I feel the same way Julie Boyer! AND I feel horrible when I eat gluten … it may taste sooooo good but the consequences? Not worth it! I too don’t cheat – at all! I am sooooo looking forward to this … my second time! – Christine

I have been off most grains including gluten since Dec. 28th. Now on to the next level of optimal health. Lets see how if feel without caffeine and dairy:)
Excited to do this. – Sara, our new guest blogger

The First Signs of Spring, It’s Almost Time for Detox!

Ready for Detox, 30 day whole body detox. grateful entrepreneur, julie boyerThis morning I woke up to the sound of rain falling on the windows. It’s a grey, late winter day and I’m thankful for rain rather than snow. My family in BC would probably prefer a break from the rain with a bit of snow! Our winter has been rather mild and it seems like spring is just around the corner, with temperatures above 10°C this week and all of the snow has melted. And one of our detox veterans, Pat Birnie, has already started her yearly 30 Day Whole Body Detox – 3 weeks before the ‘early bird’ group. It’s quickly approaching my 2nd favorite time of the year – Detox time!

Gratitude Tip: Spring is a beautiful time of renewal. It is the best time of year for a gentle detox program. Our 30 Day Whole Body Detox is a healthy, whole food detox program that nourishes your body at a cellular level. Taking 30 days to pay attention to your body, to nourish your cells and give your liver a break is a wonderful way to release the toxins that may have accumulated of the winter and to look and feel your best going into the summer season. The program is about doing something for YOU. This holistic program is all about giving your self and your cells some love.

Before I created this program, I had never done any kind of detox program before, as I thought that a ‘detox’ program had to be very restrictive and involved ways of eating that could not be maintained for more that a few days or weeks. I wasn’t interested in any quick fix program, just to go back to my old habits afterwards. I was looking to create a program that could lead to lifestyle changes, not only for me, but for my clients as well.

What is detoxification? From the Medical Dictionary onlineDetoxification is one of the more widely used treatments and concepts in alternative medicine. It is based on the principle that illnesses can be caused by the accumulation of toxic substances (toxins) in the body. Eliminating existing toxins and avoiding new toxins are essential parts of the healing process. Detoxification utilizes a variety of tests and techniques. The rest of this dictionary entry is well written and explains may of the same principles that we built our program on, including the use of supplements to support the detoxification process.

30 day whole body detoxThe 5th edition of the program will be launching on Monday March 14th, and existing program coaches will be able to renew and receive the new program for only $9.99! New program coaches can enroll for only $49.95 to receive the entire program and license to share with up to 9 clients. All of the details can be found here. Registration will be open Monday. I will be doing a LIVE call for new and existing coaches on Monday March 14th at 8:30 pm EST, please join me here: www.watchourwebinar.com for an update on the new program, key dates for 2016 and why now is the time to join our program.

Live Launch! julie boyer, 30 day whole body detoxFor those who are interested in completing the program as a clients, either as a new client or program veteran, the first group start will be on April 4th. To enroll online (new clients only), please visit our online enrollment form.

Are You Ready for a Spring Detox?

Are You Ready for a Spring Detox?

30DayWholeBodyDetox2016As I look outside and see the snow falling, it seems like spring is a long way from today. Yet it’s less than a month til the first day of spring! Every year at this time, we are hard at work on updating the 30 Day Whole Body Detox program – this year is no exception. The 5th edition is coming together really well and will be our best and biggest program to date. This program is a healthy, whole food detox program that will nourish your body at the cellular level.

Gratitude Tip: Why do a spring detox program? First, it’s all about giving your cells some love and nourishment. Our bodies are made up of trillions of cells and they are constantly being renewed on a daily basis. Taking 30 days of our 365 to nourish and feed our cells with healthy, whole foods and optimal supplementation is a real gift to our bodies. And what usually happens after the program is that our habits are changed for the better and we continue to feel the healthy effects of the program for months after. 

In early 2012, I found myself driving Dr. Libby Weaver, internationally acclaimed nutritional biochemist, to a luncheon with some of my teammates. If you’ve ever met Dr. Libby, you know that a conversation about your digestion will be certain to come up. I mentioned that yes, I did have some bowel issues and stomach pain after meals. Dr. Libby recommended that I try and see how I would feel when I removed gluten from my diet for a month. I nodded and smiled and agreed that would be a good idea.
However, initially I didn’t really agree. Being a lifelong vegetarian and former triathlete, I didn’t really think I could live without gluten. In 2012, gluten-free was not the buzz word that it is today. Gluten-free meant eliminating all grain products, breads, crackers and of course desserts and baking.
I had already been in the nutrition and wellness business for six years, and had created many different programs over the years. The first time I ran a new program, I would do it with my clients to experience it myself. When the idea of a 30 gluten-free program was planted by Dr. Libby, I decided to go ahead and create the program, and invited my clients along. I knew that I would some need help putting the program together, so I asked Dr. Olinca Trejo, Naturopathic Doctor and Laura Townsend, Registered Holistic Nutritionist to work with me on that first program.
About two dozen people joined me that first year. The next year it grew to a hundred. And in 2015, the 4th edition of the program, over 300 people enrolled in the detox. We added a coach’s program that allowed for more wellness specialists to lead their clients through the program. The majority of clients completed the program in the spring, and with the launch of a Summer Supplement and a Fall Supplement, the program was now able to be completed year round. The 4th edition of the 30 Day Whole Body Detox Recipe & Guidebook was launched on Amazon and become a global bestseller in June 2015.

What’s next for this program? The 5th edition is now a year-round program, with the emphasis on completing the program every spring. And we are collaborating with more and more experts and contributors across Canada. The program will also be available in French at the Détox complète de 30 jours – pre-sale pricing is only $39.95 which contributes directly to the cost of the translation project.

Detox for the New Year?

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.

Traditional 5 Day RESET Jumpstart

Traditional 5 Day RESET Jumpstart

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.

Nutrimeal Free, vegan & gluten-free

Nutrimeal Free, vegan & gluten-free

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.

Berry Nutty Bars - vegan & gluten-free

Berry Nutty Bars – vegan & gluten-free

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.

Which program will serve you best? To order the 5 Day RESET program, simply visit www.julieboyer.usana.com and click on Products I Love – you’ll see it at the top. Don’t forget to order a Blender Bottle to go with it! The 30 Day Whole Body Detox can be ordered from this site, and you can indicate who referred you and they will take care of you.  And finally, details about the 30 Day Transformation can be found here.

NEW Fall Program!

sunrise, fall, autumn, julie boyer, daily gratitude, gratitude projectToday is the first official day of autumn (also known as fall) here in the northern hemisphere. For many of us, this is our favourite time of the year. It’s a time of transition, not only in our wardrobes but in our behaviours, attitudes and lifestyle.

Gratitude Tip: Embrace the changing of the seasons, as there are many places in the world that do not experience the fall. Breathe a bit more deeply when you’re outside. Take an extra moment in the morning to give thanks for the colours of the leaves, the crispness in the air and warmth of the mid-day sun that comes after the coolness of the morning.

This year is the first time we’ve ever had a fall edition of the 30 Day Whole Body Detox. I was hesitant to promote this program in the fall but the demand has increased of over the years and when I looked at the Chinese Medicine theory of the 5 elements, I noticed that autumn is the season for the lungs/large intestine (spring is for liver, hence the launch of the program in the spring). As we move into the winter season, and into ‘hibernation’ and a state of contraction (not a good time for a detox), a gentle fall detox program can make the transition easier and also keep us from gaining extra pounds during the holiday season. I started 10 days ago with a small group, and we have groups starting weekly from now until Oct 13th (immediately following Canadian Thanksgiving). Would you like to join us? If you joined us in the spring, you are welcome to do the program again and you’ll receive a copy of the new Fall Supplement with 13 new recipes.

What changes are you making during this transition season? What do you like best about the fall?

Are You A Sugar Addict?

Food containing sugarSugar addiction. It’s a real thing. I’ve been a recovering sugar addict for a few years now. When I completed the 30 Day Whole Body Detox for the 3rd time in 2014, I was finally free of my (lifelong) sugar addiction – and I thought I would be for good. It was amazing to have no desire to eat chocolate and to feel totally in control of what I was eating without any cravings. When I started the program again this spring (April 2015), I knew that a mild sugar addiction had crept up again and that I needed to make a clean break for 30 days. And I did.

Here we are in September of 2015. And I am feeling once again like I am craving sugar. What I’ve realized is that for me personally (and likely a few of you share this with me), eating just a bit of sugar, indulging every once in a while or simply having a few smores around the campfire is a trigger for my sugar addiction. It’s actually astounding to me that it only takes a few indulgences to get back into the vicious cycle. I have been secretly fighting it for about a month or two and am ready to let go.

It’s not about whether or not you’re going to fall off the healthy eating wagon, it’s simply about when. The best way to deal with it is to forgive yourself and take immediate steps to get back on board. Be grateful for your amazing body and know that you can reverse the symptoms of sugar addiction by taking care of your body and nourishing your cells.

For the first time since I developed the program in 2012, I will be doing a second 30 Day Whole Body Detox in the fall. My reasons for doing it now are different than in the spring. The main goal is to release my sugar cravings (yes, again) and go into the holiday season with my cravings under control. I already have a dozen people who are going on this journey with me. It is a bit harder to detox in the fall, but we’re creating a fall supplement using seasonal vegetables and soups & stews to take advantage of the fall weather.

If you feel like your sugar cravings are out of control (read this blog post if you’re not sure) or simply want to get back on track after indulging this summer, you may register to join us here. The group start is Sept 13th and ends right before Canadian Thanksgiving. Previous clients are welcome to join us too! Deadline to order and receive your products on time is Wed Sept 9th.  Are you in?
