Simple 3 Day Detox

SIMPLE 3 DAY DETOX CLEANSE CLEAN EATING RESET
Just 3 days of super healthy eating can work WONDERS on your body. Basically, during a detox you cut back on food intake for a bit, eat super clean, drink a BOAT load of water and take a break from any strenuous working out or activity.

After just 3 days, I always feel WAY more energetic, healthy, my clothes fit better and my belly is flatter :) It's great for before or AFTER a vacation or if you just feel your diet hasn't been where it should be for a period of time. It's also great as a jump start before starting a new workout routine. I have lost between 4 and 7lbs with 3 Day Detoxes like this. Yes, some of it is water weight, but it just feels GREAT!
