The end of the year is a notorious time for over-taxing your system – overeating, eating poorly (dips, cheeseballs, cookies, eggnogs, anyone?) and over-imbibing. Between friends’ outings, family gatherings, and workplace celebrations, not to mention the stress of holiday shopping, it’s hard to maintain a balance, let alone squeezing in a workout here or there. The result is always the same: you end up feeling sluggish, bloated, erratic, and mentally and emotionally spent.
That’s why, when I had the opportunity to try a three-day cleanse right between Thanksgiving and New Year’s Eve, I jumped on it. Once committed, though, I began having second thoughts.
