A Post Easter Detox From The A Department

Are you feeling a little sluggish after the Easter choc-fest? Well this three day detox may be JUST what you need!

But just before we get to the food plan – here’s some tips and tricks!

1: As much as possible, clear away any leftover chocolate. Put it away, out of sight and commit to not touching it.

2: Stock up on the good stuff! Fruit and vegetables. Pack the fridge with healthy options.

3: Prepare! Pack tomorrow’s lunch and snacks. Plan your meals and don’t be caught short. The best way to ruin your healthy eating goals is to be underprepared.

4: Write out an exercise routine and stick to it. Pencil it into your diary and keep each session as though its any other important appointment.

And now onto the detox….
