The Detox (that isn't really a detox...)
My favourite phrase to overhear in January is typically: “I think I’ve been eating non-stop for an entire month.” We’ve all been there when we’re sick of the sight of mince pies and even the spinach-haters among us start craving something green. Welcome to 2017, everyone!
The temptation is to go all-out and attempt some radical new diet where you fast for hours, drink specially-pressed juices and generally feel a bit hungry and miserable for a few weeks before you give up, because it’s completely unsustainable.
What if I told you there is a detox that allows you to eat loads of REAL FOOD, still drink coffee, have more energy and lose up to a stone in 28 days?
We trialled two detoxes at Fit Missions in November – one vegetarian and one Paleo – and the results were so good that we’re re-running them with new recipes, enhanced support and a new gluten and dairy-free menu from January 6th . Tim Hutchinson, who joined us in September 2016, has lost 35lbs since starting, including over 1 stone on the November Detox. Here's Tim's story:
“My fitness has always been pretty good and at home we eat relatively healthy food. We make as much as possible from scratch, washed down with a beer or a nice bottle of wine, and sometimes a chocolate bar as a treat because I’ve been good with my healthy food and a long walk or bike ride. But ‘I just can’t shift this weight’ – who was I kidding?!
“I found myself signing up for a free two weeks at Fit Missions, and when they told me about the detox I thought I’d give it a try. The plan was easy to follow and didn’t contain ingredients you can only get from obscure places. I had more energy and the weight started to drop off. I was even allowed a treat day which I took full advantage of. Although the detox is over it has completely changed how I think about food and I continue to follow much of the same routine as I did during those 4 weeks. It is not a chore by any means, this is now just a way of life. The team at Fit Missions have been incredible and I owe them such a debt of gratitude for all their support and encouragement. Long may it continue!”
