Can you believe it’s almost AUGUST???

The NHS Summer Shred groups have been so FUN! I can’t believe they are all coming to an end. I loved coaching so many amazing men & women and watch them make ‘clean eating’ and exercise a part of their lifestyle!

As the summer comes to an end (sad to say this), our normal routines have been thrown off a bit and we may need a little recharge! I know for me with all the travel and vacationing, I need a little detox from the above average intake of coffee, sugar and wine! Amanda from RunToTheFinish did a wonderful ‘Sugar Detox’ on her blog last month and sadly I missed out on it… however… I am excited to announce that we are teaming up for a little fun SUMMER DETOX CHALLENGE!!!

The challenge will be to give up the following for 21 days…
  • Sugar
  • Coffee
  • Red Meat & Poultry
  • Alcohol
  • Gluten
  • Dairy
  • Corn
  • Whey Protein
What we can enjoy…
  • Fish
  • Eggs
  • Fruit
  • Quinoa
  • Legumes
  • Brown Rice
  • Nuts
  • All Vegetables
  • Sweet Potatoes
  • Green Tea
  • Kambucha
  • Homemade Juice (No Added Sugar)
  • Plant Based Protein
  • Tofu & Temph
  • Avocados

It’s a final-call SUMMER DETOX to feel completely refreshed!!! This is kinda like the CRAZY SEXY VEGAN DIET that I do twice a year, but we are allowing eggs & fish (for a bigger protein source as we are very active). We are cutting out the most common food sensitivities to help reduce inflammation, cravings and bloating that can make losing weight tougher. No counting calories, just eating 100% CLEAN and low acidity.

In case you need a reminder as to why we’re cutting out all these processed food:

  • It suppresses your immune system
  • It promotes weight gain and obesity
  • It contributes to depression, anxiety and mood swings
  • It causes an insulin response, contributing to insulin resistance and diabetes
  • It can cause hormonal imbalances
  • It increases risk for Crohn’s Disease and Ulcerative Colitis
  • It reduces Good HDL Cholesterol and increases Bad LDL Cholesterol
  • It prohibits weight loss

So what will I get if I sign up?
We won’t necessarily be giving any new meal plans or workouts, but we will be giving meal planning advice, recipe ideas, weekly e-mails, encouragement and tips! We will also all be in a FACEBOOK GROUP together!!! There will be some VLOGGING action as well as accountability! The best part is we are only charging $20!!! This is because we know that putting a little money forward is the best way to have you fully invested!

I know this challenge sounds SUPER HARD, but I know that if we do this together, we will DO GREAT and FEEL GREAT!!! If you want to kick those last couple pounds and get glowing, then SIGN UP TODAY!!! It will run from August 5 – August 26. We are only allowing the first 50 to sign up get in on this challenge!!!

SOLD OUT! Please Check BACK in SEPTEMBER!!!

We give below a few tips for men to achieve this goal.
Are you a woman who is interested in losing weight. Again it can be found in liver, red meat, milk and
cheese.

SarahJeanne @InMidStride July 29, 2013 at 7:35 pm

Can’t wait to bump it up a notch with you all!!!

Julie July 29, 2013 at 3:54 pm

I just found your blog through Amanda (obvs! because she posted about the detox) and I am looking forward to giving it a try. I am already vegetarian and did a 12 week vegan experiment that was really challenging! I feel like giving up sugar is a completely different ball game! Looking forward to it!

Amber July 29, 2013 at 11:34 am

I really want to do this but I’m running my first ultra (a 50 km) on August 10 and I feel like it might not be the best thing to do the week leading up to it. But I could start the week after. Would it work OK to follow the program but just start it a week late and also go an extra week?

Amy July 29, 2013 at 11:16 am

I am the biggest sugar addict in the world, totally rules my life it sucks! I have tried and failed a million times at giving it up. I signed up for this detox and praying this time will be different 🙂 Will you be emailing with more info or how will we bet getting info?

Jennifer July 29, 2013 at 7:57 am

I recently discovered your blog and really enjoy reading it! This cleanse is a great idea but the one item that sticks out to me is corn… not that I can’t live without it, but I am wondering why it’s part of a cleanse? I’ve just never read anything about that before (and at this time of year fresh corn is SO delicious…) Thanks!

I’m curious why whey protein is on the list of no-nos. Suggestions as to what will replace my after workout protein shake, if I join the detox group.

SarahJeanne July 29, 2013 at 7:30 pm

pea protein! SO much better for us than whey or soy proteins. myVega.com is what I use, but SunWarrior also has a wonderful product!!! Stick with it!

Christy July 26, 2013 at 11:57 am

I just discovered your blog a few weeks ago and I’ve really enjoyed it, thanks for being so inspiring!

I’m super interested in your detox, it sounds challenging but amazing. When you (or people in general) say no sugar, does that just refer to processed sugar, or are “natural” sugars (like honey? stevia?) off-limits too?

Rebecca @ Runner with an Appetite July 29, 2013 at 9:05 am

I am curious to hear about the other types of sweeteners, too!

SarahJeanne July 29, 2013 at 7:34 pm

I’m thinking naturally occurring sugars are fine since fruit is on the okay list. And Stevia is a plant so that’s fine, I *think*. Honey you want to find local and pure. i *think*.

I would LOVE to do this, but it’s smack dab in the middle of fall marathon training. I 100% agree with Aria; it would be awesome if you could do this again as a pre-Holiday detox in early November. Would get all of us girls on the right track with lots of motivation going into the holiday season. And, selfishly, I think this is what my body will need post marathon training 🙂 Gotta mix things up a bit!

SarahJeanne @InMidStride July 29, 2013 at 7:39 pm

I ate the very cleanest when I was marathon training! Towards the end, during taper, I purposefully put on 3 pounds, still by eating clean and allowing one cheat meal a week. I do agree though that pre-holiday would also be good time, as would post holiday… No time like the present too!

Hali July 25, 2013 at 10:05 pm

Sounds great!!!

Aria July 25, 2013 at 8:00 pm

Loveeee this idea but I’m on vacation smack in the middle of it and I know I won’t enjoy being limited on vacation. Maybe you can do another one of these in the fall or winter?? I’d love to try it!! 🙂

Sara @ LovingOnTheRun July 25, 2013 at 6:12 pm

What a great idea!! I have tried to give up sugar many times but always seem to fail – maybe this is what I need to finally do it for real!
