Why is it that skinny people love diets? (And by skinny I mean can afford to lose a pound or gain five and look fantastic either way.) Taking part in the irony myself, the thrill of starting a great diet is hard to resist and kind of fun when there is no pressure. Cabbage soup, grapefruit, South Beach and the Skinny Bitch, which hooked me with the title, had me at water and lost me with an intense rant about coffee. I realized that I wasn’t ready for this diet, but I got the gist of it and kept it in mind for a rainy day. When I stumbled upon the Skinny Bitch blog, Healthy Bitch Daily, it was no surprise to find the latest detox – Kaeng Raeng, an all natural cleanse. Now a cleanse, this is something I can do.
“Feeling fatigued, bloated or just plain gross?”
No? Well, in a few shorts weeks it will be Halloween (armed with a candy ration far greater than the amount handed out, then Thanksgiving (feast!) and then Christmas (cookies!). Which means that the holidays will be wrecking havoc on our waistlines for quite some time before that New Year’s Resolution can be put into place. So why wait? Cleanse now, indulge later (because no one wants a party pooper at the holidays and being the low-carb option at the table is a bit of a downer…)…and then detox as needed.
The Kaeng Raeng cleanse flushes out toxins naturally with fibers and water. Although there is no such thing as a “quick fix,” a cleanse is pretty darn close in my opinion. It is straightforward (drink!), makes you feel better from the inside out and doesn’t require a steady long term commitment or drastic lifestyle change. It holds true to my belief that if you feel good, you look good and you do good things (which makes you look even better).
The program has three levels and two timelines so you do the one that is right for you. Of course, every body is different and sometimes a cleanse can be too extreme. Find out if it’s okay for you but do not use if you’re diabetic, allergic, pregnant (or planning), breastfeeding or under the age of 15.
