If you answered yes to any of the above questions, then keep reading…

Take the 30 day nutrition challenge with me and jump into spring feeling better with less pain, less fatigue, a decrease in headaches, improved sleep and mood, better digestion, less sinus congestion, and the added bonus of a smaller waistline. Some will even notice chronic conditions may reverse or get significantly better, such as high blood pressure, diabetes, high cholesterol, allergies, acne and other skin issues, acid reflux, depression and more. I know that it sounds too good to be true, but I guarantee if you take this 30 day journey with me you will notice a positive change somewhere in your body.

Why do it? Eating whole, nutrient dense, real food without all vegetables the added colors and preservatives will have a profound impact on how you feel today and down the road. Food is powerful and what we put into our bodies has a direct impact on how our bodies look and feel. To quote Hippocrates “Let food be thy medicine.”

Eating our standard American diet (acronym is S.A.D for a reason) with its high amounts of sugars, grains, and processed foods is wreaking havoc on our bodies and causing all sorts of chronic health issues. We are sicker and heavier than we have ever been before. Even if you are eating what are considered to be healthy choices such as whole grains and legumes, it could still be having a negative impact on your body and creating inflammation. So give your body a break for 30 days and cut out all the foods that may be causing inflammation, disrupting your hormones, disturbing your gut flora, or impacting your mood and just see how you feel. You can do it…

 

Just what exactly is this challenge? To put it simply: eat real food for 30 days. 

What to eat: meat, seafood, lots of vegetables, some fruits, good fats from fruits, oils and nuts and seeds.
What not to eat: cut out all sugars, real or artificial, grains (breads, pasta, rice, etc) alcohol, legumes, dairy and most processed foods.

I am inviting you to take this journey with me starting on Monday, March 11th.

I had plans to do this on my own and then decided why not invite others to join me and then we can all support and encourage one another. We will be following The Whole30 Program.  Check out their website for more great tips and ideas.
I have also set up a Facebook Group called the “30 Day Nutrition Challenge” and will be posting various tips on what to buy, eat, meal ideas, meal planning, nutrition facts and more.

To take this journey to improved health, please email me at maryjean@greenlotusacupuncture.com and I will add you to the Facebook group. If you don’t have Facebook or wish not to use Facebook, no problem, I will email you the tips instead. 

In the next two weeks, I will start posting information about ways to prepare for the 30 day challenge.  The sooner you sign-up, the sooner you will start to receive helpful tips.

Here’s to feeling better and healthy eating!
