The Cleanse....

The Cleanse....

We aren't that unique - we want to make "lifestyle" changes in 2017.  I'd be lying if I said this is the first year we've done this.  The difference in this year is that we were introduced to the CKLS Cleanse, a 7 day cleanse that requires participants to drink 16 oz. of olive oil (chased with lemon juice) on day one and then follow a raw diet for 6 days.  The verdict?  Day One was torture. There is nothing sensational or glamorous about drinking olive oil.  In fact, I felt pretty crummy on Day 1 - waiting around to "release".  Once the releasing begins, you feel better, but really all you want to do is sleep - which you can't do because you shouldn't lay down (for fear of the olive oil "coming back up.").  Post Day 1, the raw diet is rather easy to follow with fruits in the a.m. and veggies in the p.m.  

Overall, our energy levels are up and we are remarkably less sluggish and tired...not to mention our bodies seem to be functioning appropriately.  So overall - the Cleanse was a good idea, but not one that we will rush into again any time soon (and we will be avoiding olive oil for the foreseeable future)....
