Detox Diets, Weight Loss And Mental Focus

I am 43 years old male. I have been struggling with my weight for the last 25 years. This has been the story of my life. One year I am thin, one year I am fat. This is no way to live.

I felt out powerless. My eating habits were out of control and so were my finances and my personal life. I started living my life like there were no consequences for my actions. Even though I had a good job I was broke most of the time. I could easily spend $300 on a restaurant eating and drinking with friends. I will wake up the next morning feeling guilty for the money spent and the calories consumed. My life had no sense. I had nothing to look forward to. My eating habits were destroying my life.

On January 3 I started thinking about all the things I missed out because my weight problem. Having a girlfriend (I am divorced with a 14 year old son), family vacations, class reunions, going to the beach, etc. all because I felt embarrased of how I looked. I was depressed, unhappy but mostly I felt angry at myself because deep down I knew that I was the only one responsible for my situation. Thinking about my situation brought me so much pain that I decided that this was not the life I want to live. I knew I needed to change.

It is in our moments of decision that our destiny is shaped. That moment of decision turn around my life. I took a piece of paper and started writing. I wrote about all the pain I have felt over the years because of my eating habits, all the things I could do if I could live a 'normal' life, and I made a list of 20 reasons I must change today (not should). The reasons I wrote were compelling and I visualize myself living the life of my dreams. From that day on my life changed.

The next morning I started searching for a new lifestyle. Not only did I wanted to lose weight but also to regain my energy and vitality. I wanted to be young again (younger I'm only 43). So I started looking for detox and cleansing diets. I knew that my body needed a fresh start after so many years of abuse.

During my search I came across a several detox diets. After reading and researching about them I came to the conclusion that this is what I needed, this was exactly what I was looking for. Like I said before it is in our moments of decision that our destiny is shaped so I did not hesitate and ordered right away. It was the best decision that I have ever made. .

I can honestly say I am a new person. I started dating again, I am attending a real estate institute in order to get a realtor license and I wake up every morning with a sense of gratitude and acomplishment. I feel very grateful that I've discovered this cleanse at this point in my life. The turning point in my life was the moment that I decided to take action and invest in myself for once.
