Increasing Your Nutrient Intake
Due to the overabundance of pre-packaged and fast food, many people today are overweight yet malnourished. They carry toxic fat while their bodies are starving for real nutrition. Eating whole foods, drinking water and supplementing with nutrients to fill in possible deficiencies created by mineral deficient farm soils can reverse this condition.
With Healthy Living we are fueling our bodies with CLEAN WHOLE FOODS that help to reduce the overload on our system, we want to make sure that we are actually ABSORBING these nutrients and SUPPLEMENTING where needed. One way we do this is through the targeted and intentional Arbonne Essentials Nutrition support aligned with this program. Take a look at the products and their ingredients to understand how we’re increasing our nutrient density with these supplements.
Eliminate Allergenic and Addictive Foods and Beverages
Allergies and sensitivities have increased radically in our lifetime — acute and chronic allergies and intolerances are all up — so much so that by some estimates over 60 million Americans now suffer from allergies, and millions more from sensitivities. This program helps you to identify what triggers your body and interferes with you looking and feeling your best.
It usually holds true that the things you struggle with giving up the most are the things causing you the most trouble. Our goal is to help you get your vices under control. We want you to regain the power in your daily “food relationship”. It can seem challenging but the allergenic, addictive, and/or inflammatory foods within your body actually work AGAINST what we are aiming to achieve in these 30 Days and for long-term optimal health.
The great thing is that even with this elimination list there is still A LOT of great foods that we keep in and enjoy throughout the program. Our recommended recipes prove it, and watch this space for more about what we’re enjoying abundantly and in balance at every meal!
Balance Blood Sugar
We Balance Blood Sugars with what we eat and when we eat. We eat alkaline foods that are moderate to low on the glycemic load.
Knowing how to maintain balanced blood sugar is one of the biggest keys to unlocking better health, all around. You will naturally increase your metabolism, ward off unhealthy cravings, and have more energy throughout the day. With consistently even blood-glucose levels, you’ll have better concentration and memory, and generally feel better. Most importantly, having healthy blood sugar is one of the best ways to lower your risk of diabetes and heart disease.

Blood Sugar Balancing TIPS to remember:
> Eat every 4-5 hours each day
> Avoid skipping meals
> Include fiber in every meal
> Eat hormonally balanced meals
Support Your Elimination Organs
Why detoxify and how does it help you?
We wouldn’t think about going a day without brushing our teeth, let alone years and years. Because we can’t see our liver, kidneys, and intestines we forget the important role they play in detoxification. The liver has over 500 functions and the kidneys filter 200 quarts of blood per day. You can hold 5-25 lbs. of waste in your large intestine (colon). All elimination organs need a “tune-up” and proper maintenance. The Healthy Living program supports the natural detoxification and cleansing properties of our bodies.
Our bodies are designed to detoxify and cleanse themselves. We have 7 different pathways to achieve this: liver, lungs, lymphatic system, blood, skin, colon, and kidneys. When these areas are clogged, our bodies don’t work as efficiently as they are designed to do. Decreasing the external and internal toxins over the next 30 days will decrease inflammation and increase your overall HEALTH!
We want to ELIMINATE these toxins by using whole organic foods, and supporting products such as FIBER, DIGESTION PLUS, DETOX TEA and the 7-DAY CLEANSE. It’s time to CLEAN the DRAIN!!
