Inspired by the recent documentaries, “Forks over Knives,” and “Hungry for Change,”  a few members of my family have decided to make a change.  We are embarking on a 21 day cleanse.  Loosely following Kris Carr’s book “Crazy, Sexy Diet” and Dr. Fuhrmann’s book “Eat to Live,” we’ve agreed to eliminate animal products, wheat, sugar, coffee, alcohol…for 3 weeks.  We’ll see where it leads when we get there.

Who we are:

the sister (Lisa): 36 years old.  Mother of 3 children under 5.  At home on maternity leave with my 6 month old son.  Still have 15 lbs of baby weight to lose.  Bread lover.

reluctantly vegan (the husband of the sister- Shawn): 40 years old.  Father of same said 3 children under 5.  Type 1 diabetic.  Reluctant vegan.  Job is quite sedentary, lots of time spent sitting at the computer.  Passionate about wine and meat.

the brother (Jo):  39 years old.  Father of 2 young children.  Wife not taking part in cleanse.  Overweight.  Loves to eat out/fast food.

the mother(Anna):  Mid-60’s.  Overweight with leg pain when walking.  Husband not taking part in cleanse.  Sugar addict!
