Can your healthy efforts get ruined by a couple of days of junk eating?

I was chatting with my best friend on the phone, we were both expressing how crappy we feel and we need to get our eating back on track. Which is funny, because we are both healthy eaters. It’s only that the May long weekend just ended and we didn’t put much effort into healthy eating. We weren’t together on the weekend, I think it’s just typical of a lot of people to not be as strict with the way they eat on weekends, especially on long weekends with company around. Eating way more, drinking celebratory drinks, treating yourself with ice cream, and roasting hot dogs over the fire. I love all those things, but they do not make my body and especially my digestive system feel good.


My very good friend is currently in a weight loss challenge, so she’s watching her weight very closely. She was really bummed out that she gained 4 pounds over the weekend. Felt like her previous effort was wasted and undone. It is crazy to think how quickly your body reacts to what goes into it. 

It’s so cliche and I say it so much, but you are what you eat. Eating good will make you feel good, so eating junk will make you feel like junk. Your body will change everyday based on what you put into it. Your food becomes your blood, your cells, and your vital body systems. It can take a long time to flush out the toxic stuff, but when it’s reintroduced it knows the routine and takes over quickly.

This might be depressing, but if you have ever cleaned up your diet you know how amazing it is! If you haven’t had that clarity and feeling of vitality, you might think cleaning up your food isn’t worth the trouble if it can all be undone so easily. The good part about it is that once you’ve cleaned up your diet once and let it all go, it’s easier to get back. When you already know what to do you’re body will crave the good food when it’s reintroduced. Eating clean is best described as being high on life, the natural energy, the clear mind, the feeling of balance and control over your life. There is nothing like it, it’s a powerful feeling and something clicks when it happens. Everything comes together and it’s like “Yes, this is what living is suppose to feel like. It’s actually not suppose to be that hard.”

I’m re-cleaning up my diet with the 6 week New You Plan. It’s a 6 week guide with meal plans, recipes, shopping lists, and educational handouts. It’s the guide to feeling your best, especially helpful if you’re not into meal planning. It is really handy when navigating what the good food is. Eating this way you will feel what I’m talking about above, vibrant energy and vitality. 

Join me! Starting Monday May 30. Just in time for bikini season.
