benefits of clean eating 

there are many reasons a person may choose to clean-up the way they eat. as you go through the process, you will find that even if you started off with just one reason, the benefits you experience are often broader and further-reaching. to cleanse or detoxify by itself, however, is not the solution.

getting rid of the toxins and minimizing exposure to new toxins must always be balanced with replenishing the body’s vitamin, mineral, and macronutrient reserves. when we simply cleanse without rebuilding, it is like removing the old oil from your car without replenishing it with new oil. your body is left running on empty!

benefits of the 10-day clean eating challenge:

increased energy

mental clarity

improved digestion

allergy relief

weight loss

hormonal balance

radiant skin

improved physical appearance

longevity and disease prevention

relief from minor health conditions

clarity in life path and goals

tissue regeneration

increased general well-being

personal confidence and empowerment

this is a gentle and relatively short diet and lifestyle clean-up designed to jump-start your journey to health. the diet may seem fairly restrictive compared to the modern day american diet, but you won’t go hungry and this is NOT a fast.

eat abundantly from whole foods that are listed for each phase of the program and use the menus and the recipes as guides to make the most of your experience.

this clallenge is designed to be gentle yet effective. it is also intended to be doable while you work, play, or go about your normal routine.

your normal routine, however, will be a bit different during this program, simply because you will be eating, doing and thinking differently during the challenge.
one incredible benefit of the clean eating challenge is the awareness you will gain. you experience how different foods have an effect on your energy, your mood and even your sleep. foods make you feel physically, emotionally, and energetically differently when you pay attention.

your taste buds will begin to change and you will begin to understand how your body is responding to the foods you are consuming. this will give you more control of reactions you were not aware were caused by foods.

you begin to crave healthy foods.

there are thousands of different dietary recommendations and philosophies, and new ones come up every day. the very best way to figure out your personalized diet is to begin to pay attention to how you feel as you explore different ways of eating and being. during the practice of clean eating, you will begin to recognize which foods may not be serving you, despite what you have read or been told.

clean-up your insides

every toxin you come into contact with must be filtered through the liver. the liver is the second largest organ in our body and it is also the most overworked.

given that we now understand the degree to which we are exposed to toxins on a daily basis, it is easy to see how our livers are being put into overdrive. when the liver becomes overburdened, it loses its ability to function efficiently. this leads to a cascade of potentially serious health consequences and uncomfortable reactions.
what happens when the liver is not functioning properly or is overburdened? toxins begin to find their way into other organs, skin, fatty tissues, and the blood. this is when we begin to see and feel the manifestation of some of the common ailments described below:

bad breath

bloating, gas, constipation, and diarrhea

canker sores

difficulty concentrating

excess weight or difficulty losing weight


fluid retention

food cravings



joint pain

muscle aches

puffy eyes and dark circles

postnasal drip

sinus congestion

skin rashes and acne

sleep problems

toxins can also block thyroid function, impair female hormones, and may account for depression, anxiety, and fatigue.

this basic 10-day clean eating challenge is focused on cleansing the liver. however, it will also provide support to other systems in your body, such as the colon, skin, lymph, lungs, kidneys and bladder, mind, and even your emotions.

as the liver starts the process to release toxins, these other organ systems will also provide pathways to efficient elimination.
