I WENT ON MY FIRST DIET WHEN I WAS 13!

I went on my first diet when I was 13 with my mom, sister, and cousin.

It was the Scarsdale diet and I could only consume 1,200 calories a day.  I wasn't fat.  I was athletic and muscular with a big butt and legs.  I danced 5 days a week.  I played sports.  I wasn't fat.  But I remember that diet so well and for the next 30 years my relationship with food was horrible.

I yo-yo'ed through college, got pretty skinny (aka...starved myself) for my wedding, and then went on the no-fat high sugar diet (blah!!!) in my late 20's that really put on the pounds and sent my sugar addiction and cravings into overdrive.

I was addicted to Lucky Charms cereal during my first pregnancy and drank a gallon of skim milk every few days.  My IBS and weight were out of control, but I had no idea it was my food.  Sugar, gluten, and dairy are the worst foods to eat, and I was completely addicted to them.

After I had my second child I was 50 pounds over my wedding day and felt disgusting.  I went on countless more diets over the next 10 years and managed to get off a bit of the 50, but my cravings and IBS were still horrible.  Not to mention I had developed eczema and headaches too.

I went to countless doctors because of my IBS with diarrhea and eczema, but not one of them helped me.  I was told "you have IBS, go home and live with it", and then thrown steroid cream for my eczema.

IBS and eczema are the result of internal inflammation and food sensitivities, and no one should "go home and live with them!".

But most conventional doctors still don't know this and it makes me crazy.

Food controls every system in the body and all health starts in the gut.

I get how frustrated and alone you feel.  I was there for 40+ years and it sucks!  I now admit...

I am a sugar addict and it's hard.

But being a sugar addict doesn't mean your life is over.  It simply means that you need a plan on HOW TO LIVE WITH IT.  It's possible...I promise.

It's not about being perfect, because believe me I'm not, but it is about acceptance.  It's much easier to manage an imperfection once you accept it.

My relationship with food finally healed when I figured out that I needed to stop dieting, and instead eat real, whole, nourishing foods.  Bye, bye Lucky Charms!

My sugar addiction and out of control cravings and hunger have (mostly) disappeared, and now I rarely eat simple carbs...because if I do then I can't stop!  (Remember I said manage:))

Eating whole foods is the FIRST step towards losing weight for good, and healing your relationship with food. 

When you eat the right food then you will reduce inflammation, feel full, eliminate cravings, nourish your gut, and lose weight naturally.

I promise it works.

If you're at your wits end and out of trust, I don't blame you.  It's really hard figuring this stuff out, but I promise that starting with a simple plan is best.

This is not a diet, it's simply a 10 day guide.  You can do anything for 10 days.

Sometimes we all need a little guidance and believe me this is as simple as it gets.  It's a small investment with HUGE RESULTS!

xoxo,

Margaret

WHAT OTHERS HAVE SAID...

Good morning and thank you so much.

I have seen great results from the meal plan and I am excited to finish up my 10 days and start another round. This is the only thing that has helped me loose weight for awhile!

I really appreciate you calling me the other day, it is hard for me to open up to people. But your encouragement helped me feel like I can really do this.

Have a wonderful day,
Elizabeth

Hi Margaret.  Vince and I have been on the meal plan for three weeks now and we just love it. 

In fact, I have some terrific news to share with you.  I had blood work done last week and my doctor could not believe the results...and neither could I!  My total cholesterol has never been so low, 163. I am simply thrilled with the results without using drugs.  

Your plan is so easy to maintain and the food is so delicious.

60 DAY RISK-FREE MONEY BACK GUARANTEE

I want you to be completely satisfied and successful so that’s why I’m offering this great guarantee.  All I ask is you give 100% effort and complete the program you purchase in its entirety.  If you feel dissatisfied in any way after that, then we will refund your money with no questions asked!

FAQ'S

  • IS DETOXING SOME SORT OF WEIRD DIET?

    No, detoxing is not a diet at all, but about eating real food.  You will eat tons of non-starchy veggies, fruit, nuts, seeds and high quality meat.  You will give your digestive system a break from sugar, high glycemic grains and the processed food world in general.

    No fast food, gluten, sugar, dairy, alcohol or caffeine allowed.  Sorry:(

  • WILL I BE HUNGRY?

    NO, you should’t be, and in fact you should feel more satiated.  This is not a calorie restrictive program, it is a RESTORATIVE program.  You are restoring your body from the inside out.

  • WHY IS DETOXING IMPORTANT?

    Because food is very misunderstood.  Our country is slowly killing us with low quality convenience foods full of preservatives and no nutrients.  We need vitamins, minerals and anti-oxidants from our FOOD so we can lead a healthy and vibrant life.

    Eating processed food and taking a multi-vitamin is NOT the same.  Getting everything your body needs to survive from real food is of the utmost importance for your daily, and aging life.  Disease prevention is the ultimate goal, but living every day with high energy and feeling phenomenal is the immediate goal.

  • IS IT HARD?

    The only part that may be hard is coming off caffeine and sugar.  These two may give you withdrawals for a few days since they affect you the same way as real drugs.  Yes, sugar lights up the same area of the brain as cocaine and heroin!

    Cut back slowly over 3-4 days and the affect should be minimal.  You may experience headaches, irritability and cravings.  Sorry, those are the worst days, I promise:)

    Nothing else should be hard and in fact I don’t even like to cook, so I made everything super easy for you.  As long as your kitchen is stocked, preparing real food meals is a snap!

  • WHAT'S HAPPENING INSIDE MY BODY?

    Internal inflammation is being reduced which allows the body to heal.  Many issues like diarrhea, constipation, headaches, extra weight, eczema, acne, fatigue and joint pain can be caused by food sensitivities and toxins of which we are not aware.  When we remove these foods and toxins our symptoms go away, then we know we’re onto something.  It’s truly amazing to FEEL the results!

  • WHAT IS INTERNAL INFLAMMATION?

    It’s just like a cut you can see on the outside of your body –  red, swollen and sore tissue.  Now put all of that inside your body.  That’s internal inflammation.

    Your body is on a continual fight inside because of the food and toxins you are ingesting so it stays in a constant state of unhealthy turmoil.  This is what leads to all of the pain, which can manifest differently in everyone.  I don’t get joint pain, but I do get diarrhea, headaches, belly bloat and eczema.

  • WHY DO I HAVE BELLY FAT AND BLOATING?

    There are many reasons we can have belly fat.  Age, genetics, out of balance hormones, lack of exercise, toxins and poor quality food are the main causes.  We can’t do much about our genetics and age, but we can manage the others.

    Lack of exercise and poor quality food can cause us to have visceral fat which is the one that causes belly fat and out of balance hormones.  Eating clean, healthy foods makes a huge difference.

  • HOW SHOULD I FEEL DURING THE 10 DAYS?

    Days 1 – 3 you may feel cranky and have cravings.  If you didn’t cut back on sugar and caffeine prior to the start date, then you may also have a headache.

    Days 4 – 7 you should start to have more energy and you may notice your skin clearing and your digestive system feeling more normal.  Weight loss is also common.

    Days 8 – 10 you should feel great.  Clear skin, more energy, normal bowels, flatter belly and weight loss are what most people experience.

  • IS THERE A MEAL PLAN OR SHOPPING LIST?

    Yes, to both!  Prior to the start date you will get a shopping list and meal plan so you can get organized and start to prepare your meals.

    I want this to be super easy for you.  Getting started on a project is always the hardest part, so once you get organized I know you will be successful and you will feel amazing!

  • ARE THERE ANY KITCHEN TOOLS TO PURCHASE?

    Just one for making veggie “noodles” called a vegetable spiral cutter.  You can find the Vegetti Spiral Vegetable Cutter at Bed Bath and Beyond or you can buy the Spiralizer from Amazon which is the one I have and I love it.

CLIENT SUCCESS

Working with Margaret has been great! She's given me very specific tools that I can use the rest of my life. Besides the 10 day detox that I can always use to get back on track, she's given me help in several other areas, such as organization and nutrition education. She's motivating, organized, and reliable. She's still checking on me after our time has ended. She's really helped me to approach this as a life long way of living and not dieting which has helped me relax and not feel the frustration of dieting. I highly recommend Margaret as a health coach.
