Let’s be completely honest here. There is just no shortcut to achieving good health. Like developing character or fattening up your bank account, it takes time. The only guarantee that we can accomplish and maintain such desirable gains is for us to continually improve ourselves and maintain a sense of discipline in every aspect of life.

Hard work, diligence, patience and discipline will lead us to achieve any goal that our hearts desire. Gaining knowledge and perhaps a mentor whom you look up to are additional ways to hasten the realization of your dreams.

If achieving good health and maintaining a healthy body weight are two of your most pressing desires, then buckle down, accept the challenge and work to achieve your goal. Do not turn to dangerous diet pills, unhealthy fad diets, liposuction or bypass surgery. These are all shortcuts to achieving your end goal and are a sure guarantee that going down this path will not help you maintain your objective, which, in this case, is good health.

Juicing for 7 days is not a fad diet. It is a way for you to flush out stored bodily toxins, give your digestive system a much-needed rest while your body repairs itself first on the inside. More importantly, taking in only 100% vegetable and fruit juices will help you jump-start your way to healthier food choices that will eventually be the lifestyle change you need.

Remember, ANY change entails a little discomfort. It could be a change in address, a change of work place or a change in career. Even diet changes, ESPECIALLY diet changes. This is certainly true because as a society, we have made our food our comfort instead of simply as fuel for our bodies.

So, it might be a tad uncomfortable when the craving for chocolate, ice cream, cheese or alcohol hits you while you’re in the middle of your juice diet. Do not worry, you can handle it! Remember, you are a strong individual. Achieving your goal of a healthy body and a healthy weight is much more important than the junk food beckoning you from the fridge. You know what? Get rid of it! Throw it out and show it who’s boss! You are taking back control of your health!

A little discipline, a little patience, a little perseverance and a lot of belief in yourself will go a long way.

You can do this! Claim 2011 as your year to achieve amazingly good health, a sound mind and a taut, slim body. Believe in yourself and truly, nothing is impossible!
