Everything is 100 percent plant-based, gluten-, dairy- and refined sugar-free, and made from scratch with local sourced ingredients. And yet, none of the dishes were bland—far from it, in fact. I found myself looking forward to each meal and was surprised that I never felt hungry throughout the three days (even though I always wanted to eat more of every dish).
Of course, I still felt the urge to snack whenever I sat down to watch a show each night, but since I had committed to the program, I was able to resist the siren call of my kitchen cabinet. By the third day, I was content to just drink my herbal tea, and boy was it nice not to wake up with indigestion.
I've done a lot of cleanses and “detox” programs throughout the years, and this one was by far my favorite. I never felt deprived while doing it, and I also appreciate that it isn’t centered around calorie counting or weight loss. I never weighed myself after completing the Feel Good Fix—nor did I feel the need to. I knew I felt better, less bloated and generally lighter. More importantly, it helped me break out of my nightly snacking habit and go back to truly enjoying what I eat, rather than mindlessly numbing myself with food.
And now the fine print: At just under $200, the Feel Good Fix program is definitely a splurge, but if you think about how much you’d usually spend on a nice dinner out or ordering in a few times a week, it puts the price into perspective. I plan on doing another three-day program bi-annually or whenever I need some help getting back on track.
