When you hear the word “diet” what comes to mind? Do you have a positive or negative reaction to that word? I guess it depends upon the meaning that word has for you. Is it deprivation, starvation, calorie reduction, restriction, temporary or short term abstinence from food? Or, do you see the word diet to mean nourishment, sustenance, provisions, the usual food and drink that is enjoyed or provided regularly?
The word diet comes from the Greek word diaita meaning “a way of life, mode of living” and here at Sunflower Shoppe we believe a person’s diet should be a simple and healthy way of life. So we have designed a program that will support you throughout your journey to health and wellness!
The Everyday Diet program is for everyone, and the focus of this plan is to reduce inflammation in the body and support stable blood sugar levels.
1. You begin with a cleanse that will last for 21 days. During this time you are eliminating foods that can trigger inflammation. We support you with a complete food menu plan, recipes and even a shopping list! Simple and effective.
2. We have included a supplement regimen that will support your efforts and your body’s ability to purify.
3. We have teamed up with fitness experts to provide you a simple and customizable exercise program so that you don’t have to come up with your own or join a gym.
And the best part is, after the initial 21 days you will start to look and feel better, and you will not be stuck with a restrictive diet that is impossible to maintain for a lifetime. You will then be able to reintroduce foods that you and your body love in order to achieve your personal goals.
Plus we’ll be right here to support you throughout the process as your “diet” becomes your way of life. Everyday.
