Hello all,

Spring is on the way!

Are you ready for Spring?

Need something to focus on that is positive while winter is still kicking ass? To prepare you to emerge from the cocoon of winter into spring?

I have just finished writing my Spring Detox Plan. You will not want to miss this plan if your goals are to feel healthy and vibrant and to shed some of the winter pounds gained as a consequence of the appalling winter weather this year or if you are looking ahead in the feeling great stakes in anticipation of spring and summer.

“Andrea ,
I have only now got around to reading your e book for Spring detox ( two weeks after our appointment !) and I just wanted to say I think it is FANTASTIC !
It is so clearly laid out and so comprehensive . Very inspirational ….EOH April 2014”

To order the plan you may follow this link or email the office on  

This e-book is a step by step 7 to 14-day diet guide, which can be stretched into thirty days or even longer or tweaked into a Monday-Friday with the weekends off (recommended when at maintenance). It is perfectly balanced so there are no concerns about long-term use.

The plan is simple to follow and does not require that you take any health supplements (these are an optional bonus); just honest to goodness foods with science to back their inclusion in this plan for many “science nerd” reasons.

If you wish to keep this plan to a budget aim to focus on foods like cabbage, leeks, onions, kale, Brussels sprouts, onions, chili, fresh herbs (in pots), dried turmeric, frozen berries, packets of dried beans and lentils, soups, stocks and broths, beef bones from the butcher, and smaller cuts of quality fish. Focus on everything that is local to us and available from the market or vegetable store. Interestingly these foods are the super powers for detoxification and liver function. No need for tropical or foreign foods that inflate the shopping bill.

Home-prepared foods cut back on expense and preparing soups, broths, bean dips, and vegetables in bulk quantities or ahead of time saves valuable time.

A bonus of this plan is that due to the exclusion of gluten and dairy containing foods many clients quote improved energy, reduced tummy bloating, and reduced fluid retention.

This plan is especially effective to shift stubborn fat from the waist, hips and thighs and for men from problem pectoral and triceps areas. If this is you I suggest that you follow the supplement plan as detailed in the e-book for faster results.

The plan is completely balanced in nutrition, there are no fads or gimmicks; and if anything it is a super boost to health so may be followed for other health reasons and not only in the spring time.

This style of eating is recommended for health, longevity, cancer prevention and body composition benefits in the long-term.

Many of the foods in this plan hold powerful anti-inflammatory, detoxification supporting, environmental oestrogen eliminating properties and hold potent antioxidant nutrients to boot. This plan takes the headache out of putting all these foods together by providing you with guidance, specific meal plans and tasty recipes.

People have been asking me questions about the plan so here are a few brief facts:

  1. The plan is dairy and gluten-free.
  2. The plan is low in sugar and suitable for people with gastrointestinal issues or Candida/ yeast problems; in fact I recommend this plan for healing (in addition to other supportive strategies). Fruit is at a minimum with no more than 1 portion recommended daily; and possibly a touch of sweetening from fruit in your home-made vegetable juices.
  3. This plan is completely nutritionally balanced and provides increased nutrition to support healing, detoxification, and health. The is completely opposite to many extreme detoxification diets that are imbalanced and lacking in complete nutrition and so unsuitable for long-term maintenance .
  4. Nutritional health supplements are optional, and recommended for OPTIMAL body fat loss results and health improvements. If you would like to include additional health supplements to your plan to expedite your results, then I have included brand and product specifications in the e-book along with account details for ordering them (The products I recommend in the clinic are superior in quality practitioner lines not ordinarily available in the high street stores. Some may be found in whole-foods and specialists stores in the UK and USA).
  5. This plan is especially recommended if you have been feeling fatigued or under the weather lately as it boosts your immune system and nutrition balance and reduces systemic inflammation.
  6. This plan is super for men as well as women.
  7. You should not go hungry on this plan; eat to appetite; physical and not emotional appetite!!
  8. If you are involved in figure or fitness training or have higher energy requirements this plan will also benefit you especially in the fat-reducing phase. If strict fat loss is your goal then you may trial the plan as it is, and depending on your training energy and recovery maintain as detailed in the e-book with the addition of your pre-training BCAAs or amino acids and glutamine and post-training vegan protein or whey protein.  If further calories are required then I recommend that you increase your intake of the following foods in the pre-training snack and post-training recovery to ensure that training performance and recovery is not compromised: root vegetables such as sweet potato, potato, parsnips, beets, winter and summer squash, brown, wild or basmati rice, quinoa, millet, amaranth or buckwheat.  I also recommend taking amino acids or BCAAs before training and vegan or whey protein immediately post training.
  9. I recommend this for all my clients with chronic health problems, inflammation type problems, chronic fatigue, gastrointestinal problems, etc. There really aren’t any contra-indications to this plan unless you are on warfarin where the increase in Vitamin K intake may require additional INR monitoring.
  10. If you have a low thyroid it is best to consume the cruciferous vegetables COOKED and not raw.

“There is a significant focus on foods in this plan with documented research in their ability to improve many aspects of health in relation to detoxification. For example upgraded hepatic enzyme function, improved immune surveillance, enhanced biotransformation and detoxification of cancer inducing xenobiotic compounds, and  improved nutritional status and antioxidant balance. I have gone to great lengths to include a variety of the proven ’super’ foods for health that will benefit us all, while keeping the plan practical and affordable.”

This plan will benefit everyone looking to improve their health and does not require a lot of effort. The whole family can follow this plan together and so separate meals need not be prepared. If you are under time pressure; then every positive change that you take from this will benefit you even if you cannot commit to it 100%.

If you have any other questions please post them in the comments and I will address them here.
