D3: #DetoxDiet #TransitionWeek So Far So Good

Because I’m emphasizing a transition week, I’m allowing myself some slack and much needed time to gradually get into the Detox Diet.

As we all know, diets can fail if you go into it cold turkey.

And now to address the notion that diets fail, this Detox Diet is not a permanent thing. It’s a temporary solution to cleanse the body and help the body to rejuvenate.

It’s a known fact that the human body is always trying to heal itself. When you get a cut on your finger your body will heal the wound. And when you get sick with the cold or flu, your body is trying to fight off microorganisms attacking your body.

In my humble opinion, a Detox Diet or Cleanse would help the body rejuvenate and heal from whatever illnesses or health issues we may have.

A good analogy would be to get your car tuned up to improved its performance and the health of the vehicle. How do we tune up our bodies? Well, we eat healthier and we do the cardio and strength training to get our bodies in optimum shape.

A Detox Diet can’t really fail if it has accomplished its purpose, and there will be an end to the diet, so the goal is its conclusion and the health benefits.

Another good analogy is the garden, in which I finished my 30 Day Challenge to improve and rejuvenate. It looks good now and it took time and effort to improve it. So too must we set goals to improve our health and our well-being. And we are given one body in this world. It’s purely logical to take care of it the best we can
