Step 1: Detox your kitchen
The first rule of detox is make space. Make space in your fridge. Make space on your counter. Get our your blender and your juicer. Chuck the junk. You don’t need it anymore and you won’t want it when we’re done.
What is the Detox Opportunity for the Skinny Yogini? Detox is a concentrated time where we try new habits on. Changing habits is hard. During a detox we change a lot of habits all at once. These habit changes aren’t meant to be sustainable. The shift is a Great Leap Forward. We have a great leap. A massive reset.
