TWC has been a great addition to my New Years resolution…..
TWC has been a great addition to my New Years resolution, along with Eating for Energy, that I made for this year. I enjoyed the program and learned a lot about the food I should be eating and how to prepare it. The bigger surprise was after the cleanse when I started adding back the foods I thought were good for me. My beloved Whey Protein and Greek Yogurt was now making me sick. I never realized that they were an issue for me.
I have now removed all dairy from my diet and replace it with plant based sources of protein. Now after three months I have been getting better results at the gym and my body feels better. I never intend to be a Vegan, but do have all intentions of having my two juices a day and making healthy choices
I found the daily inspiration emails so motivational, it felt like some of them were talking directly about my life!
It has been gone really really well! The recipes are fantastic and I actually enjoy cooking again! Furthermore, I found the daily inspiration emails so motivational, it felt like some of them were talking directly about my life!
The changes I’ve noticed is that I feel less fatigued during the day, I have more energy and I don’t get headaches anymore even after getting less sleep than normal (the workouts really helped). My bowel movements are so much better now too, they happen every day now rather that every 2 or 3 days! My family noticed improvements to my skin too, one of my cousins said “gosh your skin is so smooth!”. That compliment was during the 2nd week of the cleanse so its amazing how quickly one sees result. Overall, I am so glad that I did it. It doesn’t end there for me either as I still incorporate the meals from the Total Wellness cleanse into my diet now.
My energy increased significantly, I started losing weight…..
I am 48 years old. Since I almost died from starvation from severe anorexia nervosa 5 years ago, caused by physical exhaustion and extreme and continuous mental and emotional stress, I have been trying unsuccessfully to increase my energy levels and lose the excess weight I had gained during my recovery.
Since the temperature in Cyprus during summertime is very high (last year it reached 45o C, the hottest in the last 100 years), every summer was my worst time of the year, losing my energy, lying on the couch all summer, and only feeling a little alive at night when it was cooler. Every October I was exhausted and needed 2 more months to recover summer.
This year I decided to change all that. I was determined not to let this summer steal my life from me, so, in May I started your “Total Wellness Cleanse”.
I followed a raw-vegan approach and did the cleanse face twice. The results were excellent. My energy increased significantly, I started losing weight (a miracle, since my body was in a highly defensive state and did not allow any weight reduction until then), I was feeling lighter, I even started some of your exercise programs (not very consistently, I’m afraid) and I was, and still am feeling great.
After finishing my cleanse, I started Eating for Energy and it’s exciting, rejuvenating, refreshing and truly energizing! It is now the end of week 3 of the 12-week program. I have lost 4-5 kilos (still have 4 to go).
I am eating much more than I used to, mush more oil, and also a much greater variety of foods. I have even tried many new foods for the first time. It’s like an exciting journey, which, combined with the information you share, becomes an educational experience in respect of nutrition and health.
Thank you for your inspiring coaching e-mails. I was looking forward to reading them every afternoon (different time zone), listening to your teleclasses, understanding my own health challenges and their solution and experimenting with new foods and tastes.
I am happy and very calm, I find easily solutions to daily issues, I am doing things I procrastinated for years. And these past days, many other beautiful changes are happening in my life, because of this wonderful, positive energy I have.
There are no words to thank you!
I just completed the cleanse and wanted you to know how much I enjoyed the program.
The recipes are delicious and very satisfying. My skin broke out during the first 2 weeks of the cleanse but now the glow is starting to shine through. Doing the cleanse helped me get my eating in perspective and made me realize that the body does not need a lot of food if it is nutrient packed.
If you want to look and feel better this is not another fad diet or ill-conceived ‘diet’ plan, but the start of a new way of life.
Whenever I buy a new product I frustrate myself by reading review after review and researching all the pro and cons in great detail
before I’m ready to purchase.
When I first came across Yuri, I was looking for a personal training MP3. It sounded great so I bought it. It was great. I then purchased a book and some of the other workouts. These were also fantastic, keeping me motivated whilst explaining in simply terms why certain things do what. So when I saw The Cleanse I had no hesitation in purchasing it. No need to to any research as I already feel very confident in all of his products. They all work fantastically to get you the results you want and are all easy to follow.
The cleanse itself is straight forward and very easy to follow, not a lot of guess work is required which I love, its all laid out for you, exactly what to do and when to do it.
I am not an overweight person, but I was starting to feel bloated after eating and generally tired – all of the time.
Right from about day 3 I noticed that my stomach looked much less swollen and by the end of week one I had lost 1.5 inches each from my chest, waist and hips.
The most noticeable thing for me was that the underside of my jaw had tightened and my skin looked very clear and the small red capillaries on my cheeks had reduced.
I followed this through, adding a mix of cacoa nibs and nuts if I felt I was feeling the need to stray from the path and am thrilled with the results, I have a general look of being more toned and have lost a total of 7lbs and 7 inches overall.
I have absolute faith in all of the products; being an avid researcher I cannot find anything to fault in the safety and effectiveness of each one I have used. If you want to look and feel better this is not another fad diet or ill-conceived ‘diet’ plan, but the start of a new way of life. Totally recommended. If you have any queries along the way the team is always very quick to respond, so its a winner all round.
P.s I would have liked the cleanse to contain a daily shopping list, just for extra ease and it would really help benefit those who are not always fully prepared so you can do a quick daily shop if work, kids and general life seem to be getting in the way.
Thank you for all of the help and support.
I feel 10 years younger, look better and have tons more energy…..
Both Paresh and I have been following The Cleanse since Jan 1st and wow…..what a difference!!!!! I feel 10 years younger, look better and have tons more energy which I really need with two kids, and a full time job.
Since starting the cleanse I have lost 10lbs bringing me back to my pre-pregnancy weight which I had gained with my daughter 10 years ago…I know I still hadn’t lost those stubborn 10lbs.
I have now!!……..Paresh has lost additional 5lbs to a total of 25lbs since he started working with you about 4 months ago.
Love the recipes….simple and delicious. The best part was how easy and fast they were to prepare. I have dinner on the table in 15-20 mins after coming home from work which is faster than when I was eating regularly.
Absolutely love the program and your daily inspirational emails which I used to share with my cousin who is also wheat free now. Our whole eating habit has changed and the whole family is now eating this way.
Thank you Yuri for teaching us how easy it can be.
I was surprised how good everything tasted…..
Eating my way through Christmas this year, I came home heavier than ever, but more importantly to me, I felt awful. I had not really even enjoyed what I had been eating through the holidays, but I guess I kept eating, hoping my taste buds and stomach would feel happy that I ate such great foods at great restaurants. I was looking for a new year eating plan to get the weight off, and even joined Weight Watchers online, because I have had success many times with lowering my calories, and happy that I could still eat junk. But I got an email from Yuri, looked at the program and believed I should try the Wellness Diet instead because it kept me away from sugar, refined foods, wheat, alcohol, etc., all the things that had put weight on me, kept me craving more, and making feel crummy.
My experience with the eating plan was that I was surprised how good everything tasted; lost almost 10 pounds in about two weeks; appetite was satisfied, cravings gone; self-satisfied that I was eating a healthy diet for aging problems (I am 57). 30 days later, it is hard for me to eat “normal” food. I travel a lot, and I am trying to work out how to keep eating properly. My weight loss slowed way down, and I am re-visiting that: am I drinking enough water; just because it’s good for you are you eating too much at one sitting; are you getting enough exercise in. On the other hand, losing 10 pounds and keeping it off for a couple of weeks is good!
I guess I should encourage others re regularity. It has always been elusive for me, and I could never figure out why for a period of time all was well, then it wasn’t. Then it was okay, then it wasn’t. Etc. I am very excited to be so regular every day because my dad had colon cancer, and I want to do everything I can not to let the genes win out. I also love the fact of the alkaline nature of the plan for that reason.
I love the food, am adding a few things back in but mainly sticking to the recipes because they are so good and I can cook them up a lot faster than I could in the beginning. I am amazed that I enjoy this food so much, I have to say, and so very glad that I am not craving any bad stuff!
I felt myself gaining more energy and feeling lighter and more spunk to my step…..
I participated in the 30 days Total Wellness Cleanse program and have learned a lot.
It was a tough first day since I love my coffee and had caffeine withdrawal headaches the first day. But once I got thru that day I started feeling better every day.
I felt myself gaining more energy and feeling lighter and more spunk to my step. I lost 6 lbs. the first week, yet did not feel like I was depriving my body of food like so many other diets do.
I loved the options of eating other foods from the plan if I didn’t feel like eating what was slated for that day.
I also loved the cooking class videos and found them very helpful in following the recipes and learning the value of the foods in the recipes.
I always loved vegetables but never really tried too many new ones outside of my comfort zone in what I was used to eating. It was an eye opening experience to try out new vegetables and learn the variety of ways to incorporate them into my diet.
I now spend most of my time in the fruit and vegetable aisle of the grocery store and feel good about buying foods that I know are good for me.
I even got my husband to try a few of the recipes and he really liked the salads and dressing I made.
I look forward to sharing my recipes and knowledge I have gained from the program with my family, friends and coworkers.
I believe that anyone who is serious about getting their body healthy will appreciate this program and get the results they desire.
Thank you for putting this program together and helping me become a healthier person inside and out.
Thanks for all you do Yuri!
I just completed the 30-day Total Wellness Cleanse and the results have exceeded my expectations.
I lost 7 pounds, and am now at a very comfortable weight that I have been struggling to reach for almost 2 years – and this time I didn’t struggle at all! I also lost an inch around my waist and hips and close to an inch around my thighs.
But more important, I am off caffeine (from 2 cups of coffee a day), drink red wine only once a week (instead of a glass every night), and have eliminated most of my sugar/snack cravings.
And best of all, I feel like this is an eating style I can maintain forever – more and more fresh veggies, a little fruit, a bit of grains/legumes, and a bit of fish or eggs. Most of the recipes in the program are delicious and I will continue using them.
I am also enjoying the teleclass seminars, which are informative and inspiring. Thank you for all the education and support. Here’s to our health!
I will admit that seeing the results at just a week of eating right are very motivating….
I was diagnosed w/ Type 2 diabetes last summer. I have been trying to lose weight since last April. To lose weight I was doing Weight Watchers at work, exercising more, watching portion control, etc, but the weight was not coming off. In 8 months I only lost 15 lbs. I was extremely frustrated that all the effort I put in was accomplishing me nothing.
When I saw your email about the total wellness cleanse, I thought why not, I don’t have anything to lose. The day before I was officially starting I went to the grocery store and bought $262 worth of fruits and veggies and assorted supplements according to the shopping list, which definitely shows you how serious I was.
I did however forget one thing. I really don’t like vegetables, I don’t care for fruits and unless it’s peanut butter, I’m not fond of nuts. So Day 1 I lost 5 lbs- because I was starving. I did try the recipes listed, but I was only eating about 1/4 of 1 serving. Apples became my new best friend. After Day 2 of starving, I talked w/ my boot camp instructor about what was happening. She and I both agreed, I needed meat. I added meat back in and finished up the first week at -9 lbs. Week 2 I backslid a little. I was eating some carbs here and there and wasn’t as diligent about eating my vegetables or my fruits. Only -1 lb second week. Now I’m starting week 3. I have re-aligned myself with my purpose – to feel better, look better and have more energy. I will be having at least 1 recipe from the included recipe book a day. I will not eat any carbs or sugar. It’s very hard. Carbs are everywhere and I really love sugar. Desserts are my weakness. But I am confident I can do this. I will admit that seeing the results at just a week of eating right are very motivating. My challenge is to constantly tell myself that the dessert doesn’t taste as good as being healthy (and much thinner) feels.
My blood sugars were higher than they should be until week 1 of the cleanse. That week they dropped to normal levels. I like how my body is changing for the better. I can do this….
Your Total Wellness program feels like a life-saving answer to Prayer…..
Thank you for the incredible wisdom of your program. I have finally learned from it how to cleanse WITH food instead of believing I have to do a juice fast to accomplish it. While I do still believe in the benefits of juice fasting, I had never been able to reconcile doing so as a continual and permanent lifelong lifestyle change. Your program is entirely sustainable for a lifetime.
What I have experienced is an increase in my overall sense of well-being, personal power and confidence. My fitness level went up faster than at any other time I can recall. I have more energy. I have lost fat and gained muscle tone.
And my SKIN! It was the first thing I noticed changing about four days into the cleanse. I just turned 51, so this is a big deal to me. I just happened to touch my face that morning, and I couldn’t believe how soft and smooth it was. I found it necessary to have everyone in my family touch it. They all agreed it felt amazing. And if that wasn’t enough…just last night when I was out shopping for more greens, a young man came up and quite brazenly flirted with me (boy, did I ever blush). He seemed not to care or maybe didn’t realize that I am old enough to be his mother. It was hilarious and wonderfully flattering.
As for eating, I literally crave the fantastic recipes you offer above the heavier, less healthy fare to which I have previously felt helpless to resist. Now, I usually just don’t want it. Instead I want Green Revolution and don’t go a day without craving Rawsagna. I have even shared the food I have made with some of my friends who aren’t actively cleansing and have had them ask for the recipes or, better, could I please just make them some more…a whole pot, please…that includes my Husband and our 10 year old daughter and three teenaged sons. My Family have tried almost everything I have made and liked it, which is HUGE for me. I have worried about how to make sure they are getting enough healthy foods and about what kind of example I am setting by the way they see me eat as well as what I prepare for them.
Yuri, your Total Wellness program feels like a life-saving answer to Prayer.
You must be thinking…boy, ask Connie one simple question…lol. I didn’t realize I had so much to say either. Still, I hope it helps and that you can tell I am truly grateful to you. Thank you.
