That subject line was just too cute to resist… But what the heck does it mean? 🙂

As many of you know, we  are about to collectively embark on a 28 day Elimination and Detoxification Diet.
My husband Darren has agreed to take this on as well. This comes as a HUGE surprise to me as I have never seen the man go one day with out ample amounts of bread and cheese! He’s British and I’m not sure he can imagine a breakfast that does not include at the very least a well jammed English muffin.

The purpose of the 28 day program is not to lose weight (although most people do), or to deprive oneself of food pleasure, or to create a scenario desperate for an inevitable binge. It is very beautifully designed to do a few key things:

1. Give your entire body a chance to “catch up” and recover. To detoxify stuff that it has not been able to deal with due to stress (internal or external). The world is indeed more polluted than it has ever been and the ramifications are evident in our “interiors.”

2. To allow subsequent building up of systems and reconnection of internal communication. This equals greater clarity, sense of connectedness, and sheer vitality.

3. To find out what foods may be causing problems in your system. Food sensitivities are absolutely pervasive within the US. There are many factors involved in this, but what we know is that if one continues to eat what they are sensitive to, it causes a whole host of problems. This is a perfect opportunity to find out what may be contributing to any symptom you may be experiencing.

It is not a fast, although you have the option of doing the first two days with just “green smoothies“.  It is a lovely time for feasting on simple whole, life giving foods!

I will be posting the basic instructions within the week. I sure hope you’ll join us starting April 3rd!! You might in the meantime like to order the book The Whole Life Nutrition Cookbook. It has the entire 28 day program spelled out in the back and is filled with over 200 recipes that will keep you eating beautifully and with ease during the entire 28 days.

We’ll also be providing recipes and support on our EFE community site. I’m so looking forward to it!

Here’s to internal Spring cleaning and Darren’s very first Elimination and Detoxification diet!
