Do a Google search of cleansing diets and you instantly flush out 8.7 million results. Let us do you a favor by introducing you to one of the best cleansing programs we know – Joulebody!
While the hottest detox plan around is the lemonade cleanse that calls for little more than lemons, maple syrup, cayenne pepper and purified water, we keep coming back to Joulebody, the cleanse created by Yvette Rose.
Why? Well, for starters, Joulebody is a vegan cleansing program that helps with weight loss and will help ease you into a healthier way of eating. It’s NOT an all-liquid plan. It includes yummy whole foods to help curb your hunger and make the dietary transition easier on your body.
We think the Joulebody approach is much more satisfying than any of the many juice diets that sprang up a few years back when it seemed like all the world thirsted for a jumpstart to weight loss and better health.
A cleansing program is meant to detoxify your body. A good plan allows the liver and kidneys to take a break while you replace solid foods with liquefied vitamins, minerals and nutrients harvested from organic green vegetables and fruit.
If done properly, cleansing helps rid the body of free radicals – the toxins produced by pollutants and processed foods.
Weight loss is just one of the many side effects. You’ll also stop retaining water, calm digestive problems, banish fatigue and even clear up bad skin. Oh, and you’ll look and feel younger as well!
The creator of the Joulebody Cleanse stresses that her plan is comprised of 75% raw foods. The ingredients are vegan, gluten free and wheat free.
“We created this program to not only replenish your body, but to satisfy your taste buds too!” Rose notes. “Our meals taste delicious, and have a pleasant smell, great mouth feel, and are light on the digestive system. Our meal plan is part of a lifestyle that is attainable. It can be done periodically and you will get a big impact in a short amount of time”
Fashion stylist Rachel Zoe finds the Joulebody Cleanse to be a good fit. So too do thousands of everyday people just like you. Here are a few testimonials from actual users.
“Hands down this has been the best choice I've made in several months regarding food. I feel blessed to have encountered Yvette's system and I thank her for this YUMMY cleanse! :) So fresh and tasty!”
“I just feel great all around… I am more mindful of what I put in my mouth. The portions that I eat are smaller and I have not eaten meat. I don't crave most of that stuff… it’s a way of life, rather than a fad diet.”
“I've lost my taste for all the sweets I was eating before and I'm really just craving greens, salads, and fruits and drinking tons of water. I haven't even gone back to drinking coffee – and I don't miss it a bit.”
“If I was a millionaire I'd pay Yvette to prepare food for me every day – it is so good!”
Joulebody has provided holistic cleansing and detox solutions since 2009 when Rose, a nutrition specialist and certified holistic practitioner, opened her business in New York City. Rose has since padded her product line to include detox meal replacement bars and detoxifying snacks.
So, what makes Joulebody so different from other cleansing programs?
Rose explains: “Here at Joulebody we believe in developing a healthier lifestyle without renouncing food in favor of your daily raw egg and celery stick. Ours is the only cleansing program that uses fresh, vegan whole foods. Yes, you heard it here first, folks… it’s actual food, not just juice or diet pills to detoxify your system.”
Amber Shea Crawley is a 28-year-old linguist, classically trained chef, and cookbook author. She's also a big fan of the Joulebody Cleanse.
"At the beginning of my Joulebody Cleanse, I wasn’t totally jazzed by the juice drinks, but by Day 3, I was actually craving them. Ditto for the food—though some of it seemed a little bland at first, it actually helped awaken my taste buds over the course of three days to become more finely tuned and able to detect subtle, natural flavors. All in all, this cleanse was very different from the juice cleanses I’ve done, not only because it includes solid food, but because it was so low in sugar (even natural sugars).
“The benefits were different from other cleanses, too—though it didn’t ‘clean me out’ the way pure juice can, it helped retrain my body and mind to expect and enjoy milder, ‘healthy-tasting’ food. If a Joulebody cleanse is within your budget, I think it’s a unique and worthwhile way to reset your taste buds and help you move away from excessive sugar, salt, and fat in your diet."
