Yeah! 21 Days – done and dusted. You did it. Whether you succeeded in making your 21 Day Challenge 100% #EatClean, or you cracked and had that sugary chocolate (or two), you’ve made it through to start a new habit: healthy eating.
Don’t outsource responsibility for your health. Take charge of your life. Trust your gut (pun intended). There is a lot of wisdom and a lot of rubbish out there. Do your own research, learn from many different sources of information – look for research that provides both sides of the story and use what works for your body. Discard the rest.
Exercise alone won’t help you lose weight. Ever noticed how many people may be fit but they are still fat? There are loads of fit but fat people – take a look at the thousands of entrants at big cycling races or at Comrades and IRONMAN events.

It’s simple… our water is polluted to the maximum. Imagine taking your family to the local lake, and each of you pours into the water a box of washing powder, a litre of oil, your roll-on deodorant, a can of doom, your tube of toothpaste, a pile of medicine, dishwashing liquid, anti-bacterial toilet cleaner and dirty soap suds.
