I want to firstly start by wishing you all a Happy and Healthy New Year. Undertaking the Go Detox Juice cleanse towards the end of last year helped me to re-address my relationship with food and helped me to get rid of my sweet craving. Yes, I do have an odd sweet here and there; particularly during my menstrual cycle. However, I would go as far as describing myself as a sweet addict. I would consume up to two packs of sweets a day, more often these would be the ones covered in sugar. I turned to sweets because I struggled with the continuous bitter mouth that I had to endure each day. However, as I began to develop my understanding of sugary food and drinks; it became apparent to me that it was these such things that were attributing to the bitter taste I was struggling to shake.
With New Years comes with it New Years resolutions. The majority of us who do make some, often break them; days into the year, and just like that; we feel like a failure. We promise ourselves that we won’t set ourselves to be let down again and make the commitment to ourselves to not set any the following year. Yet, I can say that last year, I was one of those individuals who made the decision to embark on a diet. Yet, then by going on a diet, I didn’t see the desired results I had hoped for and instead fell right down that slippery slope; falling back into bad habits. The issue is, I never really thought much about what I was consuming. Yes, my inner voice would recognise that I was eating yet it had got to the point that I only ate what I wanted to eat and what ‘I believed’ would quench my intense hunger. Yet, I was never truly fulfilled.

I will be honest with you by saying that when embarking on a cleanse, it is vital that your mind is in the right place too. A few weeks prior to beginning my cleanse; I wasn’t in the best head space and am quite adamant that I wouldn’t have been able to begin this program or be committed to completing it. However, in preparation for this; I embarked on reading a number of self help books to help keep negative thought patterns at bay.
