Feel like a “splodge” after your Christmas dinner and festive season celebrations – eaten and drunk too much and of strange, yummy foods you save for these special occasions?
The word “splodge” describes it well – tummy still feels full even a week later, you crave sugar more than usual, you have some brain fuzz, you’re finding it hard to return to your exercise routine, your skin feels greasy and is looking dull – you generally feel like a fat cat in the sun!
You need to return to normal to achieve all your New Year’s resolutions!
It’s not all doom and gloom, though. Hopefully, you’ve enriched your body with extra Vitamin D by enjoying some soul-building sunshine. You feel well-rested. You’ve got some nice tan lines and haven’t been red at all and, most importantly, there were some wonderful fun times with family and friends. Maybe some you haven’t seen for ages and ages. Oh yeah, it was good!
The festive season is about bringing people together, celebrating the year that’s been and letting your hair down – just a little. This is particularly relevant in Australia because it happens that we have Summer at this time. So, whilst the other half of the world are tucked up cosy in front of fires and drinking warm eggnog, we are sipping our Rosé, turning the snags and watching the kids play on the beach.
Now that reality is returning, though, you’re thinking it’s time to resist the sugar, get back on the treadmill and shed the few kilos you’ve put on. You know you’ll feel better, your skin will clear up and your mind will be as sharp as a tack – again!
Two ways to do a New Year detox
Addicted to sugar? The Osmosis Sugar Detox should help with that. I suggest you begin this either prior to the FAST program below or following. We are talking refined sugar, rather than the natural type in good foods. Sugar is such a demon for our bodies, our skin and our mind. It is a difficult thing to give up, but help is at hand.
Need to shift some weight and/or detox? Miessence FAST Weight Loss Superfood is a detox and weight loss supplement. In 3 days, you’ll turn your mindset around, lose weight and, most importantly, reset your body into “healthy mode”. It provides you with everything your body needs for 9 meals – you feel empty, but not hungry.
Super bonus – for 3 days, no shopping, cooking or cleaning up – blissful!! That’s good for your stress levels!
Tried it Before…
…and couldn’t manage the taste? It’s been reformulated, so is worth another try. Apparently, bitter is required on the tongue in order to begin the detox process, which is why some people find it not-so-nice.

Having good skin that ages well is as much about your gut health as the products you apply. It is important for your total wellbeing to enjoy a healthy well-rounded diet, get sufficient sleep, drink enough water and manage your stress. The products above are an adjunct to these – you’ll find you manage life better when you take them and you’ll find they are more effective if you manage your diet and life well.
Which comes first – the chicken or the egg?!
Enjoy your 2019!!
