Look Better Naked

I am a fan of Women's Health Magazine and had recently came across an article on the book called 'Look Better Naked'. The book's created by the magazine's Editor-in-Chief and has been receiving good response all over the world. The book's all about you having a good 'nude attitude' and then believing and ultimately living a lifestyle that centres around you as a healthy and good looking person. You know how sometimes when you strip down in front of the mirror and find yourself crinching at your own reflection? "Ohhh, when is that bulge will ever disappear?" "Ooh, when did that flabby arms appear?" "Oooh, I now have cellulite?" Sounds familiar?

Don't think I'll buy the book but the article on cleansing's kinda interesting. You know how people are currently raving about detoxication. Notice the abundance of detox products sold in the pharmacies? Well, my favourite is the apple cider vinegar but I might try this 2-day cleanse plan one day. One fine day! Haha..Anyway, here's sharing it with you guys. Credit to Women's Health Magazine. You guys have your own detox recipes or plans?

The Cleanse Plan is to jump-start whatever weight loss plan you have, make you feel healthy, drop some water weight and never leave you deprived ;)

Breakfast : Light shake
  • Blend 1 cup skim milk
  • 1 cup berries
  • 1 tsp peanut butter (or flaxseed oil)
  • 1 cup of ice until frothy
  • You may add cocoa powder (yeay!)
  • 1 cup sliced cucumbers
  • 1 cup green tea
  • Steamed or raw greens (romaine, spinach, mesclun mix, lettuce, bak choy, arugula etc)
  • 4 oz lean protein (white meat, firm tofu, lean beef, fish)
  • 2 tsp oil (olive, sunflower, walnut) - use oil with some herbs as vinaigrette to saute greens and protein source
  • 10 asparagus, blanched (can dip in non-fat yogurt or swirl Dijon mustard for taste)
  • 1 cup green tea

  • Steamed or raw greens
  • 4 oz lean protein
  • 2 tsp oil
Have fun detoxing peeps! ;)
