The 2 Best Reasons to Cleanse

Most of us can come up a slew of reasons NOT to cleanse. It's time consuming, it's challenging, it's limiting and yadayaydayada. So why bother? I can think of two great reasons off the top of my head:

1.) To feel better.  Trust me on this one. After you go through the intial withdrawal from eliminating caffeine, sugar and alcohol, you'll feel more awake, alert, and energetic than you've felt in years. And instead of relying on outside sources to give you a kickstart, you'll be self-propelled. What a way to travel!

2.) Look better.  While you're cleansing you'll be eliminating foods that are difficult to digest (animal products), inflammatory (sugar, gluten), and toxic (caffeine, alcohol). And your body will thank you for it. Your cells are designed to heal and replenish themselves and by elminating foods that hinder the process, you'll allow them to do their job to the fullest. You'll probably notice that you feel less bloated. Your eyes might sparkle a little more than usual. And your skin might even become more radiant. Many people also report having stronger nails by the end of the cleanse. It's different for everyone, but chances are you'll see favorable results.

Okay, they're pretty simple reasons. But think about those days when you feel good and look good. I don't know about you, but those are the days when I feel invincible! Don't you think we all should have more days like that?
