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!
