If you think doing a 30 day clean eating reset is all about weight loss, you may be missing the point. Here are 5 reasons to start the next decade with a nutritional cleanse that have nothing to do with weight loss.
Your gut is your second brain. Like almost literally your second brain. It is the only other organ in the body that has its own nervous system. It is made of the same embryonic tissue as the brain and the two communicate with each other constantly. 95% of your serotonin, a neurotransmitter in your body responsible for your mood, is produced by the gut. Do you suffer from mood swings, depression, anxiety, ADHD? Heal your gut and you can positively impact the way you feel.
Skin conditions like acne, eczema, rosacea, psoriasis, or unexplained rashes, can originate in the gut. Your skin is your largest elimination organ (think sweat) and your body uses your skin to eliminate the toxins that have entered your body through the food you eat and drink, the air you breathe, the products you use on your body and hair, and even your thoughts! Clean your gut and watch the changes in your skin as a result.
3. Immune System
60% of your immune system is contained in the gut. 60%! Keep your gut healthy by taking a daily probiotic and eating a diet rich in gut friendly foods and it will keep you healthy!
The lining of your gut is supposed to absorb nutrients and keep toxins and bacteria out. It is kept in balance by a nutrient-dense diet that contains essential fats (think Omega-3s), proteins (think fish, chicken, beans, nuts, seeds), carbohydrates (think plant foods), vitamins and minerals. If that lining is compromised, inflammation sets in. That inflammation can lead to systemic issues including inflammation of the brain and chronic disease.
5. Because You Said You Would
At the end of the day, we don’t lose weight and get healthy. We get healthy and the weight comes off. You said you would take care of yourself. You said you were going to start eating better. You said you were tired of feeling tired, irritable, headachy, taking multiple medications, the aches and pains, the bloating, all of it. You wouldn’t let a friend continue to make promises to you and then break them, would you? You wouldn’t stay friends with someone who continually said they were going to do something and then didn’t follow through, would you? Do it because you said you would and keeping promises to yourself is just as important as keeping promises to everyone else. It’s a new decade and it’s time you were your own best friend!
Arbonne’s 30 Day Clean Eating Program
Arbonne’s 30 day clean eating program allows you to push pause. It is an opportunity to eliminate the most common allergenic, inflammatory, and acidic foods from your diet and replace them with clean eating and vegan, gluten free nutritional supplements. In so doing, you allow your body to begin the process of eliminating the toxins that are clogging your drains (think liver, kidneys, GI, and skin), and learn how to feed your body differently. With recipes, shopping lists, and a private Facebook page full of information, support, and suggestions, as well as your Arbonne health coach, you will begin to create healthy habits that will be sustainable even beyond the 30 days.
Groups start the first and third Monday of every month. Reach out to the Arbonne consultant in your Circle for more information about our first 30 day group of 2020 kicking off January 6!
Here’s to becoming the best version of you in 2020 and beyond!
