As a mum with 3 kids, I honestly didn’t know how I’d fit a detox program into my already crazy life. I knew I needed to do something to move my extra kilos, but just didn’t feel like I had the energy to do it. Chantelle recommended this program to me during school holidays.
What I found was that by pre-planning and shopping for our meals at the start of the week, meant I didn’t spend any other time thinking about it or shopping during the week. It actually bought me time. By cooking extra at dinner and having it for lunch the next day, again, more time. These things are valuable as a Mum!. I felt good in myself that I was eating such healthy food and trying hard to drink water (which I’m usually terrible at so I carried my drink bottle everywhere). I knew what snacks I could have so I wasn’t hungry and they were always at hand. Aside from the pre-planning at the start of the week, I really didn’t even think about it. We modified meals for the kids so they ate similar to us, but they weren’t up for everything. Without us even asking, I found the kids heading for the fruit bowl instead of the biscuit tin. We even managed a weekend of camping on our first week of detox!
I’m not going to lie though, it wasn’t all rosy – day 3 in particular was terrible for me. I just felt yuk that day – grumpy, irritable and short with everyone. But… the next day I felt amazing, it’s hard to explain but I just felt happy!
That in itself is enough of a reason for me to recommend this program, but we also found that the scales were pretty happy with it too. My husband and I each lost over 4kg in 3 weeks and have incorporated so many of the program’s meals into our everyday menu. So…. don’t wait, get out there. You’ll feel amazing for it!”
