Most of us are pretty great at eating, drinking and being merry throughout the holiday season. All this festivity and cheer, however, often means veering away from normal eating habits. We tend to greet each new year with a few extra pounds and vow to make things right for the year ahead!
Instead of a crash diet, join Erin to learn healthful skills that you can use throughout the entire year and beyond. For two weeks, you will ditch habit-forming and processed foods and embrace a simple, whole food approach to eating. This cleanse is for EVERY BODY. No matter what your current eating habits are – all are welcome.
This cleanse DOES NOT involve fasting, supplements, pills or powders. This cleanse DOES involve real food, recipes, nutrition information, group interaction via a private Facebook group, daily email support, and 3 meetings and yoga classes to keep you on track.
