I have received many questions regarding the 21-Day New Year, Wellness You Program from several of you. If you haven’t asked these yet, chances are that you are wondering some of them as well.
Here are some of the questions I am receiving and the answers to them.
Why is the program 21 days?
I have found that 21 days is about the time it takes to start feeling some relief and/or having ah-ha moments about the food(s) and lifestyle decisions that are affecting you. In other words, this is the amount of time when you will start to reap the benefits of your hard work – any less and you might only experience the “die-off symptoms” (which you could experience even past 21 days, depending on your current gut state). 21 days also allows for plenty of time for people to work out the kinks and to ask me questions along the way.
I know you eat meat, but I don’t. Do I have to eat meat to do it?
Absolutely not! The traditional “cleaning out the gut/detox” completely cuts out meat. I don’t prescribe to the theory that meat is awful for the gut. I prescribe to the theory that it does, in fact, heal. That said, any and all meat consumed will be grass-fed and as clean and pure as possible during this time. It must. Furthermore, if you do not eat meat there will be plenty of ideas and foods to choose from.
I want to do the program, but I can’t sign up until January 1. Will you still have room?
As of today, December 14, 2015, several of the spots are already filled. You can absolutely wait until January 1 if you need to, but I cannot guarantee there will still be spaces available as I’m getting inquiries daily.
I want to do the program, but I’m not sure I can afford the $99.
I wish I could run programs like this 24/7 and do them for people for free. Unfortunately, I cannot. Two options for you:
- You can pay half now and the other half by January 4th. If you would like to do this, simply contact me and we can work out the payment.
- Ask to have it “gifted” to you for Christmas! They can contact me to work it out.
What if I want to start January 1?
Great! Start whenever you’d like. From January 1 – January 4, it’s a good idea to start cutting back and preparing all around. This will help so it’s not a huge shock to you come January 4th.
Will I lose weight from your program?
I cannot guarantee that. I do not promote “weight loss programs” because gut healing is not a diet. I don’t believe in them as a stand alone benefit. I believe in living healthier, stronger lives with a properly-functioning digestive system. With that, the weight usually drops without even trying. But don’t take my word for it, take my client Heather’s word!
What if my digestive system feels fine, but I just want to kick off the New Year with something new. Would this be a program for me?
Yes! We will be learning how to eat cleaner and living heathier, less stressful lives. The last time I checked, most women could benefit from this 🙂 That said, please know that we will be cutting a lot of foods out. If you absolutely love dairy and sugar-free candies as part of your healthy lifestyle, they are just a couple of the things that will not be a part of our 21 days together. There are plenty of “healthy lifestyle” bloggers out there who believe in the power of “skinny-this, fat-free that.” I do NOT, so you might not enjoy the wholeness of what we’ll embrace. This is a New Year, Wellness You program for a reason.
What if 21 days is not enough for me? Will there be any special deals or discounts to keep working with you beyond the 21 days?
Yes! For anyone who wants/needs it, you’ll get 25% off any program you choose to work with me further.
What if I have a special event or outing during the 21 days?
That’s okay! Remember, my goal is to teach you a lifestyle and strategies for uncovering the food(s) and lifestyle ways that are not currently working for you. I don’t believe in fresh starts. Let’s stop pretending our lives aren’t good enough and that we must make some brand new grand entrance into the world. The best fresh start we can make is the one that never has to be fresh or a start. It is the one that helps us grow into our own; molding, shaping, becoming – being our very best. Live your life, every single day, even during these 21 days.
Will coffee be allowed?
Depends. For some of you, I’d strongly urge no, but for others, I’d recommend just trying to limit it as much as possible. Coffee is my most favorite thing in the world. The mornings seem so “complete” with it. However, coffee poses a couple main problems for those with gut issues. One is further gut irritation and the other is the fact that (most) coffee is processed, making it even harder for the body to digest. I have plenty of ideas for replacements during the 21 days!
Can I do this program if I’m traveling or have client lunches?
Yes! The first time I did it, I had client lunches almost every single day. I will tell you this now -> there will never, ever, ever be a “right” time to do this – to start. Life always throws curve balls. It’s not about having or not having willpower; it’s about being ready to change and making consistent changes.
