How many of these ring true for you? If you can answer “yes” to most of these, then we’d say joining in on our 7 Day Cleanse for Gap Week is just what the doctor ordered.

1. You’re feeling lethargic more often than not

You want to hit the hay at the same time the kids do. When you wake up you don’t feel rested, even though you went to bed early. This may be because you’re filling your body with the right foods – too much sugar consumption or you’ve hit a plateau in your diet and exercise routine. Flush out whatever it is that’s making you feel like a zombie.

2. Abdominal bloating

You’ve just eaten a salad and cannot wait to take off your jeans. “Why am I so bloated and I’m eating healthy?” Constipation can cause bloating and this may be because something in your digestive system is off. A lack of fibre in your diet is also a contributing factor to abdominal bloating and can cause major discomfort and actually make you feel low.

3. You can’t seem to shift the weight

You may have an unwanted amount of toxins in your body, stopping you from losing weight.

4. You have trouble actually falling asleep

An excessively toxic body can reduce the amount of melatonin that is released, which is needed for sleep.

5. You become stressed in menial situations

The kids have drunk half of your smoothie and you lose the plot. If your body isn’t ‘clean’ it is less equipped to deal with stressful situations. More stress is then put on your body and you may turn to caffeine or alcohol for relief.

6. If you’re craving whatever it is they’re advertising on the bus shelter

Usually that’s processed foods in the form of chocolate bars which let’s face it, are addictive.

7. You’re sweating through your shirt when the air con is blasting

Your body is working overtime to push out the toxins in your body itself. You need to help it out here!

8. You’re feeling depressed

Processed foods cause your blood sugar levels to drop and with that your mood. As the saying goes, “you are what you eat.” Some ingredients found in these foods are also toxic to the body, causing your moods to swing like a see-saw.

9. Your skin no longer looks airbrushed

This is different for everyone, depending on their hormones, but the majority of people tend to break out when they’ve had too much of something like sugar. This is the body’s way of telling you, “I’ve had enough, no more please.”

10. Want more energy?

By eating clean and ridding your body of toxins you’ll find you not only have more energy but a stronger immune system.

The 7 Day Cleanse meal plan is loaded with fresh, light and delicious recipes. Think citrus, grapefruit, greens and berries!

The Meal Plan is SPECIFICALLY designed to assist your body with its cleansing processes, help you load up on fibre and soak up plenty of vitamins and minerals to help you feel motivated, prepared and REFRESHED for next month’s 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge.

7 Day Cleanse Starts Monday 2
