WELLNESS GIRL REBOOT CLEANSE
In order to ease the confusion and overwhelm that you may experience by questioning ‘another’ cleanse, I’ve created a FAQs below. If you don’t find what you’re looking for, no problem – reach out to me – I’m happy to answer any other questions you may have.
“If you don’t address inflammation by eliminating hidden food allergens or sensitivities and by eating an anti-inflammatory diet, you will never succeed at effective and permanent weight loss.”
– Dr. Mark Hyman
“Many things seemed to bother my stomach, although I couldn’t necessarily pin it down. Now, I haven’t taken a Zantac in 2 weeks! Wellness Girl took the fear away from doing a cleanse. The program is comprehensive, well organized, supportive, informative and, yes, fun. The cleanse helped expose me to new foods and ways to eat where you’re still full and satisfied. Karen is the voice of reason. There is no right or wrong, it just is. This Wellness Girl really knows her stuff.”
– Bill, Publicist
1. What’s the difference between this program and a diet?
> In a diet, you find yourself trying to count every calorie you eat, which understandably causes you to become frustrated and give up. At the end of the day, you find yourself hungry and lethargic. This 7-Day Jumpstart program isn’t about starving your body, fasting, juicing, eating strange food combinations, or taking lots of supplements.
> It’s about reminding your body and taste buds which foods make it thrive and returning to a place of balance.
2. I struggle with weight loss resistance? Will this cleanse help?
> Let me first answer this with a question - Did you know that food sensitivities are a hidden cause of weight loss resistance? Unlike food allergies, food sensitivities often go undiagnosed because they often don’t produce a clear and immediate reaction. When you eat foods your body is sensitive to, it creates inflammation in your body. And,...
> INFLAMMATION = WEIGHT GAIN
3. Tell me more about this program.
> In this program you will identify hidden food sensitivities.
> I’ve developed a program that will explore what foods work best (and which don’t) to give you optimum energy, kickstart changes in your body, and reduce your waistline. During this program, you’re going to remove toxins from your body. Toxins are stored in fat cells. The more toxins stored in your body, the more fat your body needs to hold on to. Once you remove the toxins, your body will be able to release excess weight. I will take you step-by-step through a simple program that will make a huge difference in how you feel and look – in just 7 days!
4. What can I expect on this Reboot Cleanse?
> Lose an average of 3-5 pounds.
> Say good-bye to cravings, begin to lose unwanted weight gain, and reduce bloating.
> Feel energized, clear and confident.
> De-stress, no matter what busy environment you live in.
> Transition into a healthy lifestyle you can live with, and leave those old habits behind!
5. What’s included?
> Program Guide A complete program guide so you know what to do, when and most importantly, why.
> Daily Protocol An easy to follow document that you can print out and post on your fridge so you can stay on track.
> 4 Seasons of over 100 Delicious Recipes I’ve included the recipes from all four seasons that I’ve run this cleanse - that’s over 100 recipes for Winter, Spring, Summer & Fall,... (all you have to do is call, and I’ll be there…).
> Toxin Reduction & Meditation Tips. Learn what supplements and actions can help you support toxin removal for this Cleanse and beyond. Meditation is the key to keeping your stress in check. Adopt the practice that suits you best so you can learn to employ it regularly.
> Transition Diet. The most important feature of this Cleanse is learning what foods you’re sensitive to and how to eat outside of the Cleanse. After all, the Cleanse is only 7 days! That’s what I love about this program - learn how to eat for your body during and after the Cleanse.
> Products List. A handy list with links to items that will support you in having a successful cleanse.
> Teleseminar Recordings. Use the recordings to frame the Cleanse prior to your start and then during it to guide you through the rest of the program, as well as what to expect when it ends. Much of the information is contained in the Guidebook, though I do share a few nuggets of information to support you during the Reboot and onward.
6. Will I be hungry on this program? Is this a juice or smoothie fast? If not, what do I eat?
> You may experience slight hunger the first two days of the program, but you can always add in a snack from the meal plans I have put together for you. The meal plans are packed with amazing recipes that will likely become favorites of yours, even after the program.
> This Reboot isn’t about starving your body, juicing, eating strange food combinations, or taking lots of supplements. It’s not a fast at all, and while juices and smoothies are encouraged, the recipes I provide are delicious, filling and ones that you’ll want to put into regular rotation after you complete the Reboot.
> This is primarily a plant-based Reboot. Animal proteins are allowed for Phase 1 of the program.
7. Do you provide food or supplements?
While I don’t provide food or supplements, I do provide over 100 recipes, a 7-day suggested menu and product recommendations. Several supplements are encouraged but not required and you may already be using them.
8. What if I want a longer Reboot?
The beauty of this Reboot is that it’s flexible. It comprises 3 phases.
> Phase 1 is the preparation phase, eliminating particular foods and readying the body for Phase 2.
> Phase 2 is the essence & foundation of the program, and
> Phase 3 is transitioning you back to your life.
> If you’re interested in modifying any of the phases, no problem. The materials provide that instruction.
9. What happens after the 7 days?
> At the end of the 7 days, you will implement Phase 3, which is simply transitioning you back into the reality of your life and reintroducing foods you removed during the Reboot. Phase 3 is also a repeat of Phase 1.
> This is when you learn which foods are friends & which are foes. This is a critically important part of the process. Jumping back to your pre-Reboot ways can undo your efforts made during the Reboot.
10. Is this Reboot for everyone?
> This Reboot is NOT for those who don’t want to remove inflammatory foods from their food protocol for the duration of the Reboot. Some of those inflammatory foods include sugar, soy, and gluten.
> This Reboot is NOT for those who don’t feel comfortable preparing meals for themselves. Preparation of the recipes is essential to a successful reboot. If you would like to have meals prepared, please contact me for those contacts.
11. What is the difference between a cleanse, a detox and a reboot?
> A cleanse provides your body with a baseline for optimal functioning & as importantly, gives your gut an opportunity to reset and rebalance. We’re taking out the substances that slow you down, make you sick, cause gas and bloating, make you retain unnecessary weight and leave you feeling tired and foggy.
> A detox is a more intense removal of toxins with the support of targeted supplements and herbs. During this reboot, you may experience some detox symptoms if you are used to a SAD [standard American diet] way of eating. Typical symptoms include headaches, irritability, and the like.
> A reboot is an opportunity to give your body a jumpstart on your health goals. Removing inflammatory foods or foods to which you are sensitive, for a period of time, allows the body to heal and function optimally. While it incorporates the premise of the ‘Cleanse’ I have offered in the past, the Reboot Cleanse is designed to consider all of the body systems, and not just a focus on the liver.
12. How can I be most successful on this Reboot?
> Read the materials I provide you in advance of the weekend so that if you’d like to purchase any items from Amazon, for example, there will be time to receive them.
> Select a time period in which
> Being prepared is the key to success on this Reboot. Review & plan your menu for the reboot and prepare several recipes on Sunday [JANUARY 29th] that will cover several days.
> The reboot is not only about what foods to eat or eliminate. I encourage you to set aside time each day [or evening] to implement the non-food nutrient-filled activities that are essential to a healthy body & happy life.
13. I participated in your last Cleanse. Any benefits for me?
YES! So glad you asked. If you’ve purchased a Cleanse from me in the past, please email me at email@example.com for a specially discounted offering. I appreciate your trust in me and want to reward you with fringe benefits.
“On the 4th day, my brain actually felt “crispier”, more clearer and more focused. I realize I “pop” too much junk food into my mouth each day, and felt like my liver needed a cleansing. It’s easy to give up some foods and replace them with ones that are better for me.”
