What's the Deal With Cleanses?

Lately I keep reading about cleanses. There is no way in hell that I would ever do a cleanse where you only drink cayenne pepper and lemon juice for a week (sounds weird, but people do it). I don’t think it’s healthy and you’d gain any weight you lost doing the cleanse right back as soon as you started eating real people food again. But there is a cleanse I’m actually interested in trying. It’s the SkinnyGirl Cleanse and it’s designed by my future BFF Bethenny Frankel. Here are the things I’ve heard about this cleanse that make me want to try it: you can eat normally while you’re on it, it’s full of nutrients, it’s naturally made and doesn’t contain tons of artificial colors or flavors. Here are the things that make me nervous: I’ve never done a cleanse before so I don’t know what to expect. Will it really reduce bloating and make me feel more energized? Is it worth the money? There’s some good information about the cleanse on Bethenny’s site. The cleanse is sold at Wal-Mart, so I might head over there this weekend and investigate. She also has a line of skin care products and makeup that I’m interested in checking out. What are your thoughts on cleanses? Would you give one a shot? Have you done one before?

I absolutely adore Bethenny and trust her products. I’m actually re-reading her phenomenal book A Place of Yes as a way of jump-starting my new year and working on my New Year’s resolutions (which were taking action on my goals and thinking positively/eliminating negative energy from my life). When I read this book I literally feel like I can go out and conquer the world. It’s amazing and inspiring. Her advice is so useful in such a wide variety of situations. If you haven’t already read it, I would absolutely suggest you get yourself a copy. It will change your perspective on yourself, your relationships, and your life in general.

  1. I’m sure cleanses have their positive points. I honestly would never do one because I’m not that brave haha. My friend tried one this past summer where he had to go 10 days of salt water and lemonade. I think it’s called the lemonade cleanse? He made it 9 days out of 10 which is longer than anyone I know who’s done it, but he got really weak (and it probably doesn’t help that he had to work haha). But the one who posted about seems a lot safer. and if you’re willing to, I think you should go for it 🙂
