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.

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.

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!

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?

Sexy Summer Sun-Kissed Skin

Sexy Summer Sun-Kissed Skin

julie boyer, 30 day whole body detoxThe safest way to get sun-kissed skin is through a sunless tanner, but if you’re like me and spending a lot of time outside this summer, a natural glow is almost unavoidable. My daughter loves to spend hours in the pool so I am getting a dark tan for the first time in a very very long time – and yes, I use sunscreen daily. Here are my tips for keeping your skin healthy this summer:

alba sunscreen1. Use a natural sunscreen. I apply it before leaving the house in the morning and again before going to the pool. It’s important to apply it at least 30 min before going into the water so it can be absorbed. Mineral suncreens provide a great sun block, however I find them very streaky and not that pleasant to apply. My choice is Alba Botanica Sunscreen for Kids, SPF 40. Works for both my daughter and I. Neither of us have had a sunburn when using it even after 2 hours in the pool.

 

2. Protect your face. My favorite skin care line is Sensé Beautiful Science and I use the *Daytime Protective Emulsion with SPF 15 for my face. I apply in the morning and will reapply when I am going to the pool. It works really well and feels amazing on your skin.Sense Daytime Protective Emulsion_CA

3. Wear a hat and sunglasses. A wide-brimmed hat provides extra protection for your ears and face, I wear a hat in the pool. Sunglasses are essential for eye protection as water reflects even more of the sun’s ray on to your face and eyes. I have given up on getting my daughter to wear hers in the pool now that she is swimming. I reapply her sunscreen during our swim breaks to help.

4. Rinse off immediately if possible after swimming in a pool or hot tub with chlorine. Your skin will be much drier if you leave the pool chemicals on too long.

Sense Firming Body Nourisher_CA5. After you shower, use my secret weapon: *Firming Body Nourisher. I LOVE this stuff. It smells lovely (mild citrus) and goes on nicely, not too thick or thin. I have been using this for 9 years and it’s a product I cannot do without. Great for keeping your skin moisturized and avoids the flaking tan.

6. Keep your skin hydrated by drinking lots of water, especially when you are swimming. You may not notice that you are thirsty when you’re in the water and but you can get very dehydrated from the water and the sun.

 

 

Proflavanol C100_CA7. Take extra care of your skin from the inside out with *Proflavanol C100 – a combo of grapeseed extract and vitamin C that is a ‘facelift in a bottle’ according to Dr. Libby Weaver. It helps to plump up the collagen in our skin, especially on our faces.

8. Shade is your friend. Take breaks in the shade when possible.

Find Alba Suncreen at your local grocery store in the organic section.

Detox As A Couple

Sara Martel is a veteran of the 30 Day Whole Body Detox program but this is the first year that her and her hubby did the program. Here is her short testimonial and their pictures that say a thousand words.

‘We did it !! John and I completed the 30 Day Whole Body Detox despite weddings and showers, birthday and dinner parties and everything in between. We got off track a little at times but what we did really well was to get right back on track. John lost two inches around his waist, his clothes fit better and he has more energy ! I lost another inch as well and with 6 months under my belt of eating almost no dairy or grains this 30 Day Whole Body Detox continued to reinforce these habits. And most importantly it reinforced for John this fun and delicious way of nourishing our bodies for life. So in short..it’s not really over !’

It's more fun to do it with your spouse!

Sara’s creativity in the kitchen has inspired her to write her own eCookbook – stay tuned as we will be launching it on the blog. Did you know that we are launching the Kindle version of the 30 Day Whole Body Detox Recipe & Guidebook on Tuesday June 4th? Mark your calendars to get the promo price of $0.99!!!

Detox Veteran Shares Her Results for 2015

Cherlynn Moore has been a contributor and participant from the start! She loves the program and also loves sharing it with her clients every year. Here is her story from 2015:

Cherlynn before and after her detox

Cherlynn before and after her detox

‘My 30th Day has arrived and I’m starting it out right! Gluten free waffles with berries and beet, carrot and apple juice with my supplements! I’m not much for bikini selfies as weight loss is never a goal of mine, but more of a happy result of the detox. The photo on the beach was taken while on vacation in Florida this March/April. Following my trip I began the detox the next day. I was slightly bloated while on vacation and I had some serious skin issues as you can see in the other pictures.

This is my 4th year doing the detox so I wasn’t a stranger to what I was going to feel during the 30 days. I will say that it was much easier after my first week. Week 1 I felt exhausted, cranky, I got headaches and was super hungry. Half way into week two I felt much better and I wasn’t as hungry and able to go places while detoxing rather than hiding in at home afraid my “hang-er” would take over. Mid way through week 3 I got a bad case of a flu bug which kept me from worrying about the hunger issue. But I continued to push on through the detox.

cherlynn glowing skin

Her skin is glowing!

I will say I had a couple of cheat days on weekends as sometimes it was hard to stick 100% with my busy schedule this past month but when I was out for dinners I always asked for the gluten free menu. I even stayed away from the cupcakes at Kelly’s bake shoppe on a trip there with my son! (That was so hard lol). I am a self proclaimed sugar addict and therefore I have made the choice to continue this program into the month of May as best as I possibly can. I will also be honest in saying that I will do my best as it was difficult to cook two meals for me and my husband and kids. They were incredibly supportive which I think made it that much easier and because it wasn’t my first time and no one gave me a hard time for making the choice to eliminate certain items from my diet. I did not do a weigh in or measurements as that was not a goal of mine but I have noticed it is a result that my bloated stomach is gone and that I have more definition. I also have incredible energy so I have been taking advantage of it working outside in my yard and it gives me immense happiness that I can keep up with my busy 2-year old and 5-year old!’
