10 Day Conscious-Keto and Intermittent Fasting Cleanse - recently upgraded!

Check Facebook for our next scheduled cleanse...

Enjoy a positive, new food and nutrition paradigm

Updated and improved, science based, cutting edge 'bio-hacking' techniques of healthy ketogenic eating.

What is it?

The program is a conscious and holistic approach. We have different ratios than before, so we have a higher % of calories coming from healthy fats (avocado, nuts, seeds, olive and coconut oil etc) which make the recipes VERY satisfying. I have new recipes and some old beloveds have been slightly adjusted. This doesn't come out to a high volume of high fat foods, because it takes very little to achieve the amount of calories desired. Protein is moderate and carbs are even lower than before. The concept is somewhat mind blowing because we are conditioned to think that fat makes us fat.

The 10-day program is equally accessible for vegetarians, vegans and meat eaters. We still follow most of the anti-candida guidelines so the benefits are reaped in that regard as well. I've found it to be most challenging to gather info and recipes for vegans and vegetarians, so I provide ample options; all with optimum health and longevity in mind, as opposed to quick weight loss at the cost of an overly toxic diet and health complications down the road. But the weight loss is impressive, so it's no wonder that this approach has become so popular.

This is NOT a juice fast nor a liquid diet. Be prepared to eat plenty nutrition, filling and extremely satisfying foods!

If you are concerned about muscle loss during a fast, please look here.

You can do this in phases...

Start with the anti-candida, ketogenic-inspired recipes and eat as often as you'd like. Participants will be encouraged to try easy intermittent fasting by eating inside of an 8 or 12 hr window each day. For example, not eating after 8pm, nor before 8am the following day. You can shorten that window to 8 hrs to increase your weight loss results. There will much information and support provided.

What you need to know about Candida

Candida is epidemic in our culture, though most people are completely unaware of it. Simplified, Candida is a fungus that lives in your gut and can overpopulate, acting as a parasite and living off of YOU. To survive, Candida demands that you consume excess sugar, dairy, refined foods, gluten, alcohol, coffee etc. As a parasitic, living organism, Candida excretes it’s waste products into your system, dulling your energy and clear thinking and suppressing the immune system that was designed to keep you from sickness and chronic disease. Candida can make it impossible to lose needed weight regardless of how much you diet and exercise.

    I just wanted to express my gratitude for this cleanse. I've done a lot of different types of the years and on my quest for better health and healing myself naturally from Graves Disease despite what all my doctors and specialists had to say. I got the BED book many years ago on Joy's recommendation from her FB page and was overwhelmed by it and didn't do it. So when it was offered up to do this with the support of this group - I jumped on it. The experience has exceeded my expectations and proven that these things come just at the right time in your life. I am in a very different place than when I first picked up the BED book. Thank you all for your honest posts, recipes, and support. Thank you Joy's Kitchen for your hard work, uplifting guidance, and for sharing of yourself so freely. I feel that the dark cloud I was under prior to this cleanse has lifted and the boost I needed to return to the real "me" was given. Many thanks, Joy. You are a beautiful soul! Namaste!

THRIVE for 5

Online Detox & Weight-loss Challenge

Check Facebook for our next scheduled challenge

I invite you to join this online
5-Day super-green-mostly-raw detox to whip your nutrition into gear, big-time.

Online?

YES. You can participate from right where you are!


How Will I Be Supported Online?

You will receive mucho preparation and set-up info by email, loads of whole-food-nutrition intel, shopping lists, recipes, how-to videos and daily real-time check-ins and questions and answers in our private facebook group.

You will add not just raw but living foods, with their active enzymes still intact. As we eat cooked, processed and dead food throughout our lives, we slowly become depleted of the enzymes needed to properly digest and assimilate our food to the end product.

Due to a lifetime of choices that don't support optimum health, we lose energy, vitality and are "aged" by this process. We store toxins deep in our tissues; eventually causing chronic illness and cancer, once our immune system can no longer do its job.

In this 5 day cleanse, specific recipes are provided for juices, smoothies, raw meals and snacks, with freedom to switch things out within the appropriate categories.

There will be lots to eat and drink!

Detox, weight loss and success can be expected.

Videos and photos demonstrate how things are made.Education, networking and support provided.

The long-term goal is to create these healthy habits and sustain them with ease. Shift your paradigm to one that would have it no other way.

What will I eat? What do I need?

Lots of veggies, cooked and raw, live nut milks, seeds and superfoods to literally flood your body with vital nutrients and living enzymes. It is helpful to own or borrow a blender and/or juicer. If you don't have one, you will need access to a Whole Foods or local juice bar that makes fresh juices and smoothies. If this part is a challenge, contact me and we will look at what will work for you.

FOLLOW the specific plan, or deviate/re-create according to what you will learn as you go.

Cost is $99, $75 early bird registration (dates to be announced).

Sponsor a friend & get paid to cleanse!

When it comes to a concentrated cleanse and detox, COMMUNITY and ACCOUNTABILITY are key. When kicking food addictions and/or experiencing candida die-off, one can have an eye-of-the-needle experience and some less than comfortable moments. We need each other!

When a friend, co-worker, neighbor, family member (or stranger) learns of the cleanse through you, they will register and name you as the person who referred them. Your job will be to contact them daily, support them when challenged, share your own experiences and keep them on track. You do NOT need to advise them or answer any questions. That will be my job! You will keep them ACTIVELY PARTICIPATING in the Facebook group, this is VERY important to their success. You will receive $25 for each person you inspire to join in the cleanse. Movers and shakers who inspire 10 or more to join you in the cleanse, you will get your cleanse refunded.

Way to get paid to get healthy!

Who qualifies as a referral? Anyone not already on my mailing list or a Facebook friend at the time the cleanse was announced or a Growing Wild grad (having completed a cleanse with me already). With your help, my current reach is extended, and our healthy community gains momentum. What if you share a link and your friend becomes my facebook friend? Just let me know, if you refer them, I want to thank and compensate you!

Frequently Asked Questions

A: It IS different, yet still is a conscious and holistic approach. The difference is that we have different ratios than before, so we have higher % of calories coming from healthy fats (avocado, nuts, seeds, olive and coconut oil etc) which make the recipes VERY satisfying. I have new recipes and the old beloveds have been slightly adjusted. This doesn't come out to a high volume of high fat foods, because it takes very little to achieve the amount of calories desired. Protein is moderate and carbs are even lower than before. The concept is somewhat mind blowing because we are conditioned to think that fat makes us fat.

The 10 day program is equally accessible for vegetarians, vegans and meat eaters. We still follow most of the anti-candida guidelines so the benefits are reaped in that regard as well. I've found it to be most challenging to gather info and recipes for vegans and vegetarians, so I provide ample options; all with optimum health and longevity in mind, as opposed to quick weight loss at the cost of an overly toxic diet and health complications down the road. But the weight loss is impressive, so it's no wonder that this approach has become so popular.

I provide some excellent resources to help get clear on the science behind it, but the proof really comes in trying it and ALLOWING THE TIME for it to work. I accentuate the point because the first days can be rough and confusing. The end result by the 10 days is that the weight loss has gained momentum and people are asking if they might even lose TOO MUCH weight. That's NOT a problem that can't be remedied once your weight loss goal is achieved.

Keto and intermittent fasting are being used to boost brain function and clarity as well as by high-level athletes as a means to build muscle and increase endurance. Again, once your desired weight loss is achieved, you can continue with the very user-friendly lifestyle that maintains and increases all desired benefits over time.

My personal 2 cents, anyone who has weight to lose and ESPECIALLY menopausal women who have 'tried it all' have GOT to give this a try, and dedicate to the process. The rewards are so worth it.

A: A ten-day re-education on eating to cleanse, kill off candida, repopulate healthy gut flora, balance acid/alkaline, reestablish healthy and efficient digestion, hydrate, discover and expand on nutrient-dense, plant-based proteins (though animal protein is permitted). Recipes and daily support provided.

A: Five fast and furious days of extreme nourishment and detox. Emphasis is on hydration, green juices and smoothies and live, raw vegetables, and some fruits, with plenty of healthy plant-based proteins and fats. Recipes and daily support provided.

A: The Growing Wild programs take two important yet distinct approaches to cleansing, detoxifying, nourishing and re-educating the participant. In a sense, they are two different roads to the same, ultimate goal ofachieving a sustainable, healthy, vibrant, energetic, pain and disease-free life.

  • No gimmicks, powders, diet pills etc. Nothing to buy but fresh, real foods.
  • Program overview, recipes, photos, how-to videos and food-education and enlightenment provided.
  • Detox buddies, active forum for daily live coaching, Q&A and sharing among participants. Full accountability, coaching and community support. provided
  • No: toxic, processed foods, soy, caffeine, gluten, dairy, alcohol or sugars.
  • Daily pre-measured water for proper hydration.
  • Suggested addition of probiotics for balanced gut flora.
  • Cleansing and detoxifying though food; absolutely no fasting or calorie counting.
  • Re-setting of palate so healthy foods are more desirable.
  • Elimination of most food allergens during cleanse/detox period.
  • Both programs designed to eliminate food addictions.
  • Restore restful sleep.
  • Reduce chronic-inflammation with anti-inflammatory foods and drinks
  • Weight loss can be expected

A: While going full-out is encouraged, diversions from the proposed program are not considered failures. The closer one sticks to the proposed plan however, faster and more noticeable results can be expected.

A: Participants experience a positive and powerful momentum during the detox/cleanse period, and enjoy the daily education, support and engaging conversation of the group forum. Because each program can be done at varying intensities, one could repeat the same program and build from a “lifestyle” version, (re-adjusting their habits and learning the foundational concepts) to a “strict/therapeutic” version, or take the reverse approach. We understand that participants have individual goals in regard to their cleanse and we respect their chosen approach to each program. If continued participation in the programs offers the best support for your goals, we welcome and encourage you to stick with what is working!

A: All programs are designed to be beneficial in any order. Each one prepares you for the next and supports the goals you have created and intend to carry through. Participants are generally educated and clear-thinking by the completion of their first program, to the point of understanding their personal-best approach to their second, and so on.

A: Pregnant and breastfeeding women are encouraged to take the “add-in” approach. The focus is not on detox but on nourishing the body by adding in the suggested nutrient-dense foods, smoothies and proper hydration. Excessive juicing is discouraged as it can trigger a rapid detox reaction. We encourage an eat-for-health-and-nourishment approach. Among the many benefits of the programs, participants have reported long, restful nights (for their babies, for the first time ever) when babies are no longer exposed to toxic, difficult to digest foods, and food allergens.

A: While some report a loss of energy on day one, two or three of the cleanse/detox, others report increasing energy from day one. Results vary as one may experience a stronger to virtually undetectable detox reaction. Both programs can be adjusted to resolve concerns about possible reduced energy during the program period.

A: By the nature of an online program by which participants receive non-returnable, non-refundable intellectual property, participants are encouraged to fulfill their program in the timing that suits their schedule best. Access is given to a private group page that is loaded with recipes, photos and videos, as well as files that can be accessed and downloaded for personal use at any time.

A: It is our belief that this question indicates an important problem that must be addressed and resolved in order for your overall health and immune system to function in a healthy capacity. Support and resources will be provided to seek the best possible solutions for each individual situation.
