so every year people make new years resolutions and by month 2 or 3 they've already broken them. well here is one that you can do and keep cos it only takes 1 month to do, and what better time that the first month of the year to do it and thus get it out of the way? so here it is: the maker's diet. yes, i'm redoing it (again) and will be at a minimum of every january (it marks my anniversary, coincidentally, of when i redid it at the direction of the diet's author which got me feeling this good). so start off the new year with me and detox and prime your system to endure the punishment it just took from the holidays and also to get it ready for the next 11 months of cheats.
so this is advanced notice to you all. get your book, read it, get your food, and get ready. diets, especially difficult ones like this, are always easier to do with some on else for support and encouragement. by february you should be on phase 3, which is the maintenance phase. so if you can get by january, just one month out of the year, one month out of your entire life, you should pat yourself on the back for the accomplishment and hopefully also be feeling a little better as well.
