The best way to start off a new season is by detoxifying the body for a refreshing transformation, which is a typical routine in "casa de Lynsee."  Juice cleansing has become quite the "trend" throughout the nation, but it often gets misconstrued regarding its purpose.  Many people have an assumption that by doing a juice cleanse means that a weight loss of 50 pounds in two weeks will occur.  It is true that by doing any type of detox cleanse some weight loss is bound to happen; however, most of it is water weight.  Additionally, the main purpose of a juice cleanse is to allow the body to heal itself.

After consuming multiple juice cleanses over this past year, I've learned that it truly helps give my body time to heal after putting toxins in my body and get back on the healthy eating track.  For example, I was eating my fair share of pizza and cupcakes prior to the approach of Spring.  Therefore, a juice cleanse was necessary for my body.  My body and mind felt fatigued and I lost focus, but after a seasonal detox I felt amazing.

The thought of not chewing on anything edible for three days is quite frightening, especially for juice cleansing first-timers.  Hence, my latest video "How to prepare for a juice cleanse."  Check it out and let me know if you dare to try it out!  Trust me, you will feel amaze balls afterwards.

Healthy Habits: My Top Five Tips for Losing Weight

#1: Lose the Sugar!
Many people don't realize the amount of extra calories you consume by drinking soda, juices, or other drinks that are full of sugar.  Rather than drinking beverages high in sugar, opt for water.  It's much better for your body and your skin!  There is also plenty of sugar in alcoholic drinks, so if you are looking to lose weight I suggest leaving the alcohol alone for awhile.  If you have one drink per week, then mix it with club soda or have one glass of red wine.

#2: Portion your Plate 
If you eat five small meals throughout the day rather than three large meals, it will help you with portion control.  Your plate should be no higher than an inch of food in height and should consist of primarily proteins and vegetables.

#3: Switch to Whole Grains
Limit your grains or carbohydrates to a minimum, but choose whole grains if you must.  Whole grains refers to brown rice, whole-wheat bread, whole-wheat pita bread, or anything that says "whole-wheat" is pretty much safer for you to consume.

#4: Egg Whites are your New BFF
There are added calories in whole eggs so switch to consuming egg whites, which are lighter and better for you.  They are the perfect breakfast with a side of turkey bacon and spinach or hard-boiled eggs are a great snack (minus the yolk).

#5: Snacks Don't Have to be Bad
If you must have a snack throughout the day, grab a handful of raw almonds (no salt added) or dried cranberries.  I also like apples with a little almond butter. 

I hope these tips help those of you who are looking to lose weight or for those of you who just want to create a healthier lifestyle for yourself.
