“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do, so throw off the bowlines, sail away from safe harbor, catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore, Dream, Discover.”
~ Mark Twain
Is fear preventing you from participating in life? Does it stop you from venturing out in public when you have been alone? Does it stop you from trying something new, like my Spring Cleanse, for example? Participating in something new like a cleanse, often induces fear but with a bit of courage and a plan, you will soon be taking steps in the right direction to improved wellness. More exciting than that, you will be growing!
A cleanse can inspire a feeling of fear because most people have a notion that cleanses cause intense upset in your life, much of it gastrointestinal. Some think you need to starve yourself. You can’t eat normal foods. You will have to eat foods that taste awful, like spirulina. Your friends will ostracize you because of your weird eating habits and more. There are plenty of reasons to doubt the value of a cleanse because so many of them are poorly designed and they really do ask you to devote hours a day to the porcelain throne because those cleanses only induce diarrhea. Most cleanses are also far too short to address cleansing thoroughly. These are NOT proper cleanses.
When Dr. Rachel and I sat down to build our new and improved Spring Cleanse, we enforced some very strict rules during the construction phase. The Cleanse had to be safe, medically approved, and practical. We wanted a proper cleanse that lasted at least 4 weeks. It couldn’t induce severe tummy troubles and it had to have recipes that were tested and delicious, using clean ingredients. We thought of you, the people who would be using the cleanse, and knew it had to fit into your busy lives. Dr. Rachel and I both worked through the 4-week plan to make sure it was doable. We tasted and tested. We worked out. We sampled the supplements and we made sure nothing about the Cleanse would induce fear. In fact, while we were working on the Spring Cleanse, we got pretty excited because we loved the feedback we got from our Ambassadors about the recipes and we liked the early buzz we were getting from our teasers about designing a new Cleanse.
Fall Cleanse participant, Andrea, from PA, said, “I can’t wait for your Spring Cleanse to start, Tosca. I have fallen off track so badly, I don’t know how to get back on. The Cleanse will do it for me.”
Barb shared, “The Spring Cleanse is just the thing I need to get myself ready for my daughter’s wedding this summer. I really need to shed a few pounds and get that glow everyone keeps talking about. Sign me up!”
The new Spring Cleanse is highly workable. We can do it. As I am writing this blog post, I have a lovely batch of cleanse friendly Blueberry Muffins baking in the oven. They smell heavenly. And yes, they are in our Spring Cleanse menu plan, along with other delicious new dishes and tried and true favourites like Powerballs—you’ll really like these!!
As for physical movement, to expand and become more awesome in our living, means we need to move. Our brains are programmed to seek ease and to make living, thinking, and doing more efficient. Approximately 95% of our daily living behaviors are habitual. No wonder we easily fall into a rut. But movement is necessary, even during a Cleanse. So, we have reinstated yoga and I have designed a fun, new trampoline workout because rebounding is a powerful part of cleansing.
I realize you may be hovering on the edge of decision-making time. Will I participate in the Spring Cleanse or won’t I? But, as Mark Twain said in the opening quote, twenty years from now will you be disappointed by what you didn’t do? Or will you break free, jumping into living with both feet?
I want you here with me and the rest of the community that is already embracing the Spring Cleanse. Together we will make powerful, positive change. We will cleanse, transform, taste, bounce, meditate, heal, love, and laugh together. We will share our journey on the private Spring Cleanse Facebook page and enjoy the gorgeousness of our community.

P.S. – This Spring Cleanse is perfectly paired with a side of support, so make sure to find a friend or family member to join in with you. We are stronger together.
5, 4, 3, 2, 1, 0 – Go! I’m so ready! I need to pay attention to my diet. Elbows injury have been affecting my physical activity. Let’s do this my friend! <3
So lovely to see your happy face. Thank you also for your enthusiasm regarding the Spring Cleanse. Injuries are annoying. I have been in a similar place with my health and know the Spring Cleanse will clean us all up.
Big hugs my friend,
I’m looking forward to this spring cleanse. I did the fall cleanse and loved it. I can’t wait!! 😀
If you liked the Fall Cleanse, then you will love the Spring Cleanse. The entire program has been overhauled and we have new recipes that will re-energize us after the winter.
Can’t wait to get started with you.
Game on! I let myself indulge a bit while on vacation in Hawaii knowing that your Spring Cleanse was coming. Having done your fall cleanse last October – I’m so looking forward to cleaning out my system (bye bye tarot chips and Mai Thais) and getting my glowing skin and energy back. Can’t wait to begin!
So glad you will join in. I am sure Hawaii was worth every indulgence!
See you in the Cleanse girl!
Spring Cleanse – it just sounds sunny and vibrant! Just what I need after this dreary, gray, snowless winter. I’m also looking forward to putting my rebounder to good use.
The dreariness is often challenging. A big dose of spring sunshine and clean fare will help us shift gears.
See you on the Spring Cleanse. Get ready to feel amazing.
I am ready. but can not get into the page!
We are about to release all the information about the Cleanse – this evening anther eBlast is going out. You won’t miss out, I promise. The start date is April 11th. There will be plenty of information going out before then.
Ready, Set, GO! I am so want to do this! Thank you Tosca and Team. xo
You are already at the starting gate. Good for you. In just a matter of days we will be getting the Cleanse underway. I love, love, love your enthusiasm.
See you soon.
I’m excited for the spring cleanse. Will you be providing vegan options or be suggesting alternatives…hope so, I’d love to participate.❤️ you Tosca!!! You inspire me every day!!
Yours is a question that gets asked a lot. In fact I will be addressing this more thoroughly in my next blog. Please make sure to visit my site and read it. But in the meantime, the short answer is YES! I have accounted for Meat Free, Dairy Free, Gluten Free and Grain Free in the recipes for the new Spring Cleanse. Get ready to eat a lot of vegetables!
This past Fall I wasn’t able to participate fully in your cleanse since I was away for part of the time and hadn’t gotten my supplements in on time. This spring cleanse sounds like just what my body needs. I look forward to hearing more about it as it becomes available.

Lovely to hear from you. The Spring Cleanse seems to be everyone’s solution to a series of challenges life has delivered. The most common one, “it’s so hard to get back on track.” I believe the Spring Cleanse is exactly what is needed in that case.
I need it too.
See you there girl,
When is the start date? The link to the pre-order email isn’t loading….
The start date is April 11th but we are announcing launch details tonight. Stand by! It’s happening.
Hi Tosca,I have fallen hard since Xmas and finding it very hard to get on track again. This Spring Cleanse is exactly what I need!
Thank you for it and I can’t wait to start! Love always. xo
The details for the Spring Cleanse are being released this evening so the timing couldn’t be more perfect. I know participating in the Cleanse will do wonders for you.
See you there!
I love your energy! Thank you so much!!
So very excited to start this cleanse! I did Fall cleanse and it really helped kick start my weight loss. My workouts have been on par, but my eating has swayed a bit so this is perfect timing to get back on track. What I love most about these cleanses is that they give me an opportunity to try new foods that I have never tried before, and I find new pantry staples to move forward with. I am a creature of habit, so I tend to eat the same foods everyday – which leads to boredom and binge eating something horribly for my body. These cleanses force me to get out of my food comfort zone and I am so incredibly grateful for it!!!! Counting down to April 11th. . .
So glad to have you on board for the Cleanse. We will work together and experience remarkable change. I am a lot like you – eating the same foods on repeat. You can eat on repeat in the Cleanse too because these foods are clean, cleansing foods.
Looking forward to working with you.
where do I order?

Happy to have you join in.
just bought my spring cleanse book and my husband is going to do the cleanse with me. He loved the strike sugar so hopefully he’ll love this. It is so much easier to be successful with him on board. When can we download the book? I see the cleanse start 11 Apr 16.
Hello Jennifer and Hubby.
Welcome!! Thank you!! Doing this with a loved one is a great idea. The book will be available for download on the 11th. We will make sure to give you plenty of access time. The grocery list is being released on the 7th. If any make ahead recipes are required for the first day you will be getting those too.
Here we go!
Hi Tosca: I used to eat clean and fell off the wagon to the tune of 55 lbs and 7 years. I’m trying to get my life back on line and the spring cleanse looks really intriguing. Would you recommend this for someone like me who is a little lost but trying to get back on the wagon and, if so, is there a lot of love and support? I don’t have a group of supportive folks in life and worry about quiting as the only one who would struggle . . .
I hear this often, so you are not alone. Don’t worry. Doing the Cleanse in good company with the rest of us is sure to get you back on track.
There is so much love and support here, not only with participants but with Dr. Rachel and myself, that you will be sure to feel it and succeed. We are your supportive folks.
I am so ready for this cleanse, Tosca! I have been under more stress than normal lately, and have been eating lots of sugary foods… I think the spring cleanse will be just what I need to kick-start an improvement in my diet. Looking forward to it!!
Sher, I am right there with you! I’m ready as can be. We will rock this cleanse!Tosca
I’m very keen to do this, but I’m currently training for a half marathon and triathlon. Can I do the cleanse and just increase portion sizes. Is it modifiable at all for endurance athletes. My eating has gotten way off track and I know this would help my performance. But cutting down on calories too much, I realize, is also not good for training.
Thank you for your note. I recognize the effort and nutritional support needed for such training, as I have done it myself. You may be well served to eat the cleansing foods in the Cleanse but I am not sure you would receive sufficient nutrition to support your increased training efforts. You would have to increase your food intake. I don’t worry so much about calories because it is more important to be concerned about the quality and quantity of your nutritional intake.
If you are keen to Cleanse, do it but truly up your food intake to ensure correct nutritional support. Dr. Rachel and I can help you keep an eye on things via the Cleanse FB page.
Much success with your training.
