Over the years, people have tried all kinds of crazy and harmful diets. Many of the dangerous diets of the past caused serious harm to women’s bodies. But don’t let that scare you off.

    I love Oil Pulling! It’s so simple but the added benefits are incredible! I oil pull in the shower if I have one first thing in the morning, if not I’ll do it while I cook breakfast! I’ve also oil pulled after having a couple of drinks the night before and it actually helped my hangover 🙂

  2. Great tips! I wonder, though, is a Jamba Juice for lunch on a fasting day a good option for those in a rush. I don’t even know what the calorie count is on a typical Jamba Juice smoothie, but one would assume that it’s pretty low. I suppose the calorie information can be found somewhere online.

  3. Fantastic! I’ve been hearing about “vegan” diet from my friends and I’m tempted to try it. No, I won’t be doing it to reduce weight… But just the thought that I’d cut ice cream and yogurt, gives me second thoughts… *sigh*

    I think more than physical, this diet requires emotional preparation!

  4. I haven’t tried oil pulling before, but I’ve heard about it. Sounds like there’s a good amount of benefits. I’d like to research more about it! 🙂

  5. Great post, love all of the tips. I have difficulty getting certain vitamins, and because I get in a comfortable rut with food. I don’t necessarily WANT to switch things up once I have found something I like or that works with my workouts.

  6. I have seen some of these teas but found the prices seem to keep going up and up and up. I need to be recommended of some brands that are much more affordable and actually offer free world wide shipping.

    Great post… hopefully it will inspire a few more people to make the change on a more permanent basis. I think these tips are also great in general for anyone looking to make a change in their lifestyle.

  8. I so want to try this but have found conflicting information on if you already have fillings – will the oil pulling affect the integrity of the filling that you know of? Some online say yes it could pull the filling out? Appreciate any information you may have come across on this!

  9. I’ve tried teatox and the experience was terrible! It caused headaches, vomiting and extreme stomach pain! I stopped right away, I can’t bear the side effects…

  10. Very informative! Thanks for writing both about the pros and cons 🙂
