Simple Free 1 Day Raw Food Cleanse Menu to Prepare for Weight Loss

Cleanse Smarter

There are many causes of unwanted weight gain, including stress, hormones, a poor diet, injury, even organ health. There’s so much out there being marketed for weight loss and really, when you’re in the thick of it, it can feel like your head is spinning.

What diet works, what diet can you actually stick with without going insane, etc. The one thing I’ve found that works is to find something that feels good on a vibrational level. At certain times, if I’m feeling stressed or uncomfortable in my body, I resort to eating raw foods because they help me feel more calm and relaxed.

Now I’ve designed this one day cleanse for you to prepare for weight loss but I want you to remember a few things, this is only 1 day and rome wasn’t built in a day, neither was your dream body.

You’re beautiful as you are and it’s totally natural to want to improve if you feel heavy and bloated. That said, weight loss is a process and requires consistency and low stress levels.

Raw food cleansing has successfully worked for me to shed unwanted weight (about 30 pounds in about 2 months without exercise at one time in my life.

This is a way for you to get your foot in the door so to speak and give raw a try for a day and then you can decide if you want to transition into the next stage – which is the 21 Day Raw Food Reset Cleanse.

The 21 Day Raw Food Reset Cleanse is an extremely successful program that thousands of people in the Young and Raw community have used to support cleansing, healing, reducing inflammation and yes, a nice side effect is weight loss. In some cases, up to 25 pounds, but every body is different.

The 21 Day Raw Food Reset Cleanse includes a 14 day raw food cleanse menu with all your meals and shopping lists pre-planned and mapped out for you, a 7 day optional juice cleanse with recipes included, an emotional eating hypnosis audio that can be extremely helpful if you’re having a head time with your relationship to food or eating when you’re stressed, and a private members only group so you can seek support and don’t have to feel like you’re doing it all alone, even if your friends or family aren’t supportive.

Below, I’ve mapped out 1 day for you to prepare your body and mind to heal, and start taking action towards the body you want and deserve. Just commit, give it a day, and then, perhaps you’ll be ready to go all in with us. I’ll be in the private group waiting for you 🙂

2 cups warm lemon water

1 tbsp. hemp seeds
small piece of ginger or about 1/5 tbsp.

3 tbsp. chia seeds
1 tsp. vanilla bean powder or extract
2-4 drops stevia
