What people are saying about Healthy Beach Girl
When I decided to do the Healthy Beach Girl Cleanse/Detox, I felt pretty confident. I consider myself to be a “mostly healthy” eater. I was already an avid juicer, I had already eliminated dairy and gluten for over 6 months and have felt a big difference my daily “feel”.They way that my body reacted to the raw eating was AMAZING. I could tell into the second day that it was not only going to be what I expected, but it was going to exceed my expectations on how my body would truly react. And, entering day three, the slight appearance of a headache reminded me that the importance of proper hydration during the cleanse, and into my daily routine hereafter, is a MUST.I have more energy, a clear thought process and feel “lighter”. My workouts did not suffer in any way and I actually think they were more beneficial, since my body was fueled with the proper energy to work efficiently.I gained so much from this cleanse, recipe wise and knowledge of my own body’s needs. What I lost was lots of toxic sludge that I didn’t need and 8 pounds! I will incorporate all of these things into my routine. As everyone else, I will have those days where I want what I want. But my question will be to myself in most cases, “Is what I am choosing to eat going to feed and fuel my body or slow it down?” That is one of the things out of many that I take away from this Healthy Beach Girl Cleanse/Detox!! I do agree that this experience was life changing because it taught me that eating healthier did make me happier 😉 – Kim Mardis, San Marco, Ca
I am feeling so good and plenty satisfied on phase 2 that I am going to stay on that for a while. I lost 3 lbs last week and with my thyroid problem, I have not lost ANY weight in 3 years (just keep adding!!). I am having 2 bm’s a day. I normally have 1 every 2 days. I may add beans, quinoa or rice in a month or so.Is there any problem to continue on phase 2? I am keeping it very basic. I drink the tonic in the morning then a green smoothie with chia or flax and hemp. kale & spinach salad with various veggies, fruits and avocado, typically chicken and pumpkin seeds on the salad. I make my own dressing with avocado or olive oil garlic, herbs, lime juice and white basalmic vinegar. Veggies and protein for dinner or a smoothie if I am not too hungry.- Jan R, Ponte Vedra, Florida.
So I have completed Day 8 of the 11 day Clean eating challenge with my Healthy Beach Girl Tribe. As you guys in the program maybe start to transition back and add things back in and go towards your more regular ways of eating after a detox cleanse such as this… I have decided to keep going and not transition yet. I am feeling great! I struck down a cold at its first signs, I sailed through the female cycle, I am listening to my body, getting in tune with the nutrients and I have learned so much about things I had never heard of or even tried so far. This has all been possible with MY determination, my 100% commitment, and my focus & attention. I am so thankful for the help of Jen McCarthy Mons. Thank you Jen! Thankful for THIS GROUP and the opportunity to share and discuss the ups and downs of how we were feeling as we all went through it together. I really think this program has set me on a path of transformation and mindful awareness regarding what goes in my body! So Grateful! PS I am not on a diet! Tiffany G, Jax Beach, Fl
These recipes have been fantastic and I must say it definitely helps having this Healthy Beach Girl Nourished Lifestyle support group!
Reading everyone’s “checking in updates” has helped to keep motivated and on track and great to share ideas! – Shannon Clark, Atlantic Beach
I got a facial today and the lady told me my skin looks healthy, hydrated, even toned. I couldn’t believe it. That is the first time I got a positive comment. It’s usually. “Oh boy what have you been doing girl?”. I told her about the cleanse and her reaction affirmed the success of this cleanse. Woohoo, I love this cleanse!! Coleen Quinn, New York,NY
I’m feeling fab post-cleanse. Anybody with me? I even went for some red wine, but I got organic, and it didn’t have nearly the negative effect regular red wine was having!!! So so sooooooo many thanks to our fabulous Jen for doing this for us and for her continued support. I feel confident that I speak for this whole new group of friends when I say: “We love you!!” – Camp Bradshaw, Ponte Vedra, FL
Finishing up the 7 day cleanse today and I wanted to say “thank you” for this wonderful experience. I have considered doing a cleanse before, but was afraid I would be miserable and lack the energy to get through the day. That was absolutely not the case with this program! I feel lighter (5 lbs officially), filled with calm energy, and motivated to keep up the healthy eating program. With all the yummy recipes and choices of fruits, vegetables, seeds, and clean proteins to eat, I never felt famished. I did not experience any food cravings, either, which really surprised me. The juices, smoothies, and fresh foods gave me the energy not only to work and function normally, but I had one of the best runs of my life on Friday and my yoga practice was deepened by the spiritual experience of cleansing my body. Thank you, Jenny, for the guidance. Having the Facebook group with whom to share the experience was fun, too. Thank you, fellow cleansers, for your support and sense of humor. I can honestly say that my eating habits are permanently changed for the better after this week. I’m ready for Spring! – Caitlin Dull McCarthy, Stuart, FL
** I really enjoyed it. I started at 217 lbs and this morning I am at 208. Since doing the Detox I have had more energy and able to do cardio every morning and resistance training —M-F during my lunches. I will most likely continue with the lemon elixir and throw in some smoothies every once in a while. Anonymous
OMG, I cannot believe how much my life and health has changed in just the first few days of this program. I feel like a new woman! I have so much energy and I sleep like a baby at night!
Wow, I am just amazed at the quality of this program. Each day, I am greeted with an email that inspires me to stay on track and teaches me more about what I am doing for my body with the daily detox habits. I feel renewed and so much better than I did when I signed up. Thanks for all your help! Rachel, New York, New York
It is the end of the detox phase, and I am happy to say that I am down 5 pounds! Thanks for your support, guidance, and the amazing meals that are helping me to lose weight so much more easily than all the other diets I’ve tried. I don’t feel deprived at all! Laura, Seattle, Wa
Hi Jen! I just wanted to touch base with you and thank you for your inspiration through the cleanse. It has been life changing! I feel so good, I don’t want to eat anything but whole foods! I have lost 7lbs. and feel full of energy! As I told you, I have tried to change certain foods in our daily routine, but it took the total elimination of all inflammatory foods to really analyze what fuel my body needs. I was eating way too much protein, grabbing processed bars for on the go meals, and continuing to consume wheat and dairy. Those obviously do not work for me! I also eliminated coffee altogether! For a three cups before speaking person, this alone was life changing. Green tea is completely satisfying! Gluten makes me bloated, so bye-bye gluten! I’m allergic to cow’s milk, but would allow myself a ”treat” of pizza every now and then, only to feel terrible for days. Now, I would think of consuming cheese! My protein is now fresh tuna or salmon a couple of days a week and a scoop of vegan protein powder in morning smoothies. Thank you, thank you Jen! Elizabeth Peck, Atlantic Beach
I’ve meant to write a testimonial for Jen for a long time now and it’s my pleasure to do so! I am a chiropractor/certified in acupuncture practicing for 16 years now- my undergrad degree is a B.S. in Human Nutrition from Ohio State. Jen is an amazing resource who I trust for advice on health & wellness products/topics because I know she does very thorough research as well as truly practices what she preaches! I did her cleanse program and can attest she did a great job with it! Her cleanse program opened me up to adding a greater variety to my smoothies, helped me create meal plans, and created even more lasting healthy habits from the accountability her program created for me. Thanks Jen and keep inspiring and setting that outstanding, healthy example that you and your family so strongly represent! Dr Kelly Huber, DC Ponte Vedra, FL
Healthy Beach Girl 28 Day Transformation was a great way to introduce my family to clean, healthy eating. My oldest son, for health reasons, has been gluten and dairy free for over a year and I was getting tired of making separate meals for everyone in the family. Going gluten and dairy free seemed like such a daunting task and my husband and I had been hesitant to give up the foods we love. Following the 28 Day Transformation was beyond simple. The recipes were easy to make, filling, delicious, and full of new and exciting flavors that I never would have tried otherwise. Within days of changing our eating habits, we felt great; lots of energy, sleeping better, no 3 pm or after dinner junk food cravings. I’ve tried many different “diets” and while I might have had short term success, I always felt deprived and hungry and quickly returned to my old habits. On the 28 day Transformation I was never hungry, and still managed to lose over 10 lbs in a month! This is not a diet at all, it’s a new way of living. The weekly shopping lists and meal plans made shopping and cooking so easy. I buy exactly what we need and I can cook a few days per week and have plenty of food for breakfasts, lunches and dinners and snacks. This means less waste and less eating out because I didn’t have time to cook. We enjoyed the ease and food of the Transformation so much we purchased the 52 weeks of meal plans Jen offered. As a busy mom with three small children, having healthy, easy to prepare meals planned out each week is a huge time and money saver. Even better is knowing that I’m providing tasty, nutritious food for my family. – Stephanie G., Connecticut
