I can bottle the fresh, nutrient-rich beverages for you, but I can't bottle the willpower for you to succeed on a cleanse. That, my friends, is a big part of the practice of cleansing. Be mindful, be disciplined, be committed. There's a first time for everything. Practice and you will discover inner strength and a boost of self-esteem. I'm here to support you along the way and answer your questions ("I'm having dreams about cheesecake, is that normal?"), but the real inspiration comes from my CAN CAN'ers. Encouraging responses from a few of my first cleansers of 2011.
"Overall I have found myself slowing down around food. It feels really good. And even with little sleep due to my daughter being up in the night, I did not automatically turn to caffeine. I definitely feel more proactive and aware. I do miss the Green Juice!" - Kory
"I made it! Feeling great, but ready to chew again :) Strangely, I had a dream about cheesecake last night (that I ate it to break my cleanse and then was furious with myself....weird, huh?!) I was glad to wake up from that one!! Thanks again for all your help and encouragement in making my first cleanse such a positive experience!" - Jill
"As for the CAN CAN Cleanse, I'm so so so glad that I did it. It ended up being easier to complete than I expected, yet delivered stronger results than I expected. I couldn't be happier by my decision to do this. I've followed the Post-Cleanse guidance, and still feel exceptional. In addition, it helps you evaluate the rest of your life and how you are living. It is amazing how much processed "everything" we put into our bodies, so it was great to give it a much deserved break. I'm sleeping better, have more energy, and believe I look better. I know this sounds crazy, but I've had dark circles under my eyes for 10-12 years, and while they didn't go completely away, I feel like they are much less dark." - Marty
"I had to add 1/4c almonds and 1/2 avocado per day, because I need to chew on something, and I got hungry. But, I have to tell you that Saturday morning I woke up feeling the best I have in years. I felt sort of high! It was awesome. And, I've only had one coffee since the cleanse. I was drinking at least one every day. Also, I'm not craving sugar, which is just short of being as amazing as the second coming of Jesus. Anyway, all your stuff is so tasty and wholesome. It really restarted my system and made me want to eat healthy." - Kimberly
