Research shows that nearly 40% of U.K. adults are actively trying to lose weight. Does this include you?
In your effort to feel better, get healthier, and become more fit, you might have tried every so-called trick in the book. Yet, even with the crash dieting, complicated meal plans, and trendy workout routines, there can still be a nagging sense that something isn't working.
That's because slimming down for good can't be a flash-in-the-pan effort. Rather, it requires a reinvention of the way you look at nutrition, with an emphasis on filling your body with whole, plant-based foods that nourish it from the inside out.
Today, we're taking a look at how you can achieve the balance you're after by changing your routine for the better.
Why Crash Diets Don't Work
There's a reason crash diets have earned that moniker over the years.
These are meal plans that usually revolve around a set of unhealthy caloric restrictions, designed to give you an initial wave of confidence but ultimately leave you burnt out, exhausted and frustrated, not to mention hungry.
In addition to their unrealistic guidelines, crash diets don't work because they don't require or encourage a full-blown lifestyle change. They allure with promises of quick weight loss but never reveal that unless you get to the core of your condition, any short-term victories you see will be short-lived.
Sure, you might shed a few pounds when you cut out carbs completely, but the second you pick the starches back up, it's all too easy to gain them back just as quickly. Not only are these diets elusive, but they're also expensive and many carry dangerous health risks.
At the end of the day, there is no fad diet, pill, or supplement that can take the place of serious nutrition. If you're tired of researching the latest trends and trying every plan in the book, it's time to take a step in a new direction.
The Benefits of a Food Programme
You love the idea of abandoning your current diet craze and shifting completely to a lifestyle that honours your body. The only problem? You're not exactly a Michelin-star chef in your home kitchen.
The good news? That's perfectly OK.
Even beginners can learn how to make gorgeous, healthy meals that are as delectable as they look. The key is to choose ingredients and flavours you love and look for new and exciting combinations. Yet, this step is often easier said than done.
You've got a busy life, and between personal and professional commitments, you might be feeling pretty stretched thin by the time mealtime rolls around.

The Role of Juicing and Cleansing
Over time, your body can become full of toxins, including those it absorbs from the environment as well as the food you eat. While a nutritious food programme can help keep you on track on a daily basis, it's important to periodically rid your body of impurities so it's better equipped to receive those benefits.
A raw juice cleanse can get you there.
This involves drinking only raw juice for a set period of time, usually around a week or less. Unlike a fad diet, a juice cleanse isn't meant to stress your body. Rather, it gives your body a time to rest from the work of active digestion it's used to accomplishing around the clock. At the same time, the juices deliver powerful vitamins and minerals right into your body.
In response, you're able to naturally reset years of conditioning around your cravings. In the days that follow, you should notice the difference in both your appetite and your waistline. You'll also notice higher energy, along with an increased metabolic rate.
When you team with us, you can rest assured that the juice cleanses you get are 100% natural. They're also delicious, even though they're devoid of additional sugars.
Why Choose Raw, Fresh Juices?
Be wary of any diet that requires you to consume copious amounts of soup or any other warm dish to lose weight and get healthy. When you heat-treat or pasturize most food, you lessen its nutritional value.
That's why we stick to freshly-blended smoothies and juices. This approach allows the ingredients to retain more vitamins, minerals and enzymes. Whether you love fruits, vegetables, or both, we have a juice cleanse for you.
If you're craving something naturally sweet, start with our Raw Fruity Cleanse. These juices combine carrots, apples and oranges and are refreshingly satisfying and filling. For those who prefer a more savoury approach, try our many Detox Raw Veggie Cleanses.
Slimming Down, Made Simple and Delicious
It's easy to get caught up in the hustle and bustle of life and forget your weight-loss and nutrition goals.
Yet, slimming down effectively can take time. It requires a full lifestyle change, with a commitment to stick mostly to the foods you know are the best for your overall health.
