Are you ready for a quick Spring Clean of your Health?


Sponsored Post

There is less than a month until Christmas and it appears that the party season is in full swing!  By now I imagine that you would have been spending a bit of time catching up with family, friends and work colleagues.  Not to mention the kids end of year celebrations!

I'm also wondering if anyone is starting to feel a little worse for wear?  You know, starting to feel run down,  sluggish or just plain exhausted.

Maybe it's time to change some habits before the New Year rolls around.  I know, you're thinking 'as if that's going to happen with Christmas only a month away! ' but it is possible to do a quick clean up of your health so that you are feeling great and full of energy by Christmas. 


Kathleen Alleaume (MSc), who is an Accredited Exercise Physiologist, Nutritionist and author of What's Eating You has developed a new lifestyle plan.  10 Days to a Healthier You is an easy to follow, all in one guide that helps people get back on track and create long lasting healthy habits that will stay with you.  Supported by Equal Stevia, the plan focuses on low GI, high protein and low sugar, yet still offers great tasting meal options.



"This is not a typical fad diet that promises 'quick fixes' or that you ditch after ten days," said Kathleen.  "It is a sensible eating plan designed to be flexible, nutritionally balanced, health enhancing and can be adopted permanently."
"Incorporating low calorie sweeteners, such as Equal Stevia, into a healthy eating routine also means you can still enjoy sweetness in your meals and hot drinks, without the calories of sugar."


10 Days to a Healthier You includes
·           Clinically tested weight loss principles
·         Nutritionally balanced and health enhancing meal plans
·         Delicious recipes based on everyday seasonal whole foods
·         Exercise guidelines
·         Essential pantry / fridge and shopping list
·         Healthy snacking suggestions
·         Eating out tips
·         Advice on how to maintain weight loss post 10 days
·         Suitable for vegetarians and gluten free diets

I have been given the opportunity to have a look through the 10 day plan and I think it is a great option for anyone who would like a little extra guidance on how to incorporate a healthy, balanced eating plan and exercise into their lives.

For those of you who prefer to have a more detailed guide on what to eat Kathleen's plan gives you a weekly menu so that you know what you are eating, when .. great for when you need to plan your shopping list and some extra inspiration!  And check out this recipe .. quick and easy!

Sounds like a great idea before the silly season - or even just after to cleanse! That chicken recipe looks delicious:)

I'm trying the "CHemical Diet" recommended by a workplace colleague ... it's hard, but so far so good.

Would love to know your thoughts ... my blog is;

So far I have lost 4 kgs in 4 days so I know it's working but I also know it's not sustainable.
