Several weeks ago Mr. Living in Peru and Living in Peru’s editor had a lively conversation about health, wellness, and diet. Our editor Hope had seen the documentary “What the Health” and knew it was right up Mr. Living in Peru’s alley. After watching the documentary the two took similar but different paths.
Hope, who had already been on a slow progression to an all plant-based diet decided to go completely vegan, while Mr. LiP applied another lesson from the film, eat consciously. Note: Taking small steps to a healthier lifestyle is advisable! If not, it is likely that you will fall back into old habits fast and hard. So if you are vegetarian, you could try out veganism, but if this is your first step, you could start by becoming aware of what you are putting in your body and how it makes you feel.
To progress his steady but sure path towards eating more consciously, Mr. LiP decided to do a cleanse of his body. It seemed that the universe was aligning right in front of him; first the health talk, then the documentary and now a totally out of the blue comment from his friend about a green juice cleanse appeared.
Being the social person that he is, he easily found a company in Lima that offered a green juice cleanse that was simple and efficient; he is, after all, a very busy guy!
“I decided to change my life for something healthier (without going crazy) to feel better about my lifestyle, the environment and set a good example for my sons. In the movie they say, if you want to change your life, take a good look at your diet, and if you believe that you can improve it, then do it. If you wish to lose some weight too (YES, please), my friend Anita told me, it all starts with a detox. I said ‘WHAT?!'”
“In the past, I had to fast for 12-18 hours before a surgery and I remember it was hell. Also, many of friends told me how much they had suffered when trying to lose weight by not eating anything but healthy soups made from vegetables. I won’t say I was scared, but I must admit I was a little worried about failing my attempt to detox my body for 3 days. Nevertheless, I found the necessary courage and ordered online my juices to do the complete 3-day detox program.”
