After the holidays I find it more difficult than usual to get back into eating a normal, healthy and well balanced diet. Usually getting off track doesn't take a lot of commitment to regain focus and start to eat clean again but there is something about all of the Christmas food and the holidays that makes it especially difficult to start eating healthy again. Whenever I find it more difficult than usual I will do a juice cleanse, more of a smoothie cleanse I guess because I use whole fruits and vegetables and blend them rather than use a juicer. I find restricting my diet to this, or even partially this, for three to five days leaves less room for snacking and helps recharge and jumpstart my diet back to normal.
