If you want to lose fat, feel great in your body, and experience better health there are a number of programs and eating plans out there that work. Some of them are very restrictive (paleo) and some are downright crazy (Atkins). When we designed the BRD lifestyle our main goal was to create something that worked really well and was seriously simple and sustainable.
BRD is just that program, and we’re proud of it.
Isagenix products can provide crucial, time-saving and vitamin and mineral dense nutrition. Rah’s been a testimonial for the products for 5 years! Of course you can abide by the guidelines while eating clean, whole, foods 99% of the time but inevitably there will be situations where BRD approved food isn’t readily available. If you’re hungry and stuck with no options you’ll spiral. Fast.
This is where Isagenix comes in. Having bars and meal replacement shake packets (just mix with water) on hand can be the difference between a nacho meltdown at happy hour and enjoying a glass of sparkling wine before heading home to eat your BRD approved din-din. Beyond the Isagenix meal replacements they have cleanse products. In this vlog we share the benefits of the Isagenix cleanse products, how, and when to use them.
The top 3 benefits of cleansing on a road trip:
- No Meal Prep Necessary
Our 6 hour drive from Zagreb to Dubrovnik, Croatia included a few stops at gas stations. Luckily since we decided to do a cleanse day we didn’t have to worry about the pastries and junk that were assaulting our senses. This leads us to #2…
- Give Your Digestion A Break + A Clean Out
Our 16 hour trip from MN to Zagreb, Croatia included 2 Delta Sky lounges and a free epic upgrade to first class. This meant free yummy and not exactly BRD approved food + free and yummy alcoholic beverages. More than the approved single glass of wine? Duh. It was free. Taking this cleanse day gave our bodies a bit of a break after we’d indulged a bit and allowed us a chance to clean out.
- Mental Challenge
Perhaps one of the greatest benefits of taking a cleanse day is the opportunity to flex your self-control muscle. It’s always good to take yourself out for an occasional test run and be reminded that you’re in control of your choices 100% of the time. Even when the options aren’t great (and face it, they rarely are on a road trip) you get to decide what you feed your body. To paraphrase Invictus: ‘You’re the master of your food, Captain of your culinary adventures.’
The next time you’ve got a road trip planned consider taking a cleanse day while on the road and avoid getting stalled out with your nutrition. Send us a postcard and let us know how it goes!
