Remember the Freshman Fifteen?

And how easy it was to lose the weight...

Those were the days.

The weight melted off after some intense workouts, eating less, and cutting down on your beer consumption. 

It's not so easy anymore. 

Your tried and true tricks aren't working. In fact, the harder you work out and the less you eat, the more weight you gain! What's going on?

Well, it's your hormones sister...

And before you throw in the towel and buy another pair of jeans, one size bigger... 

Join me for this 5-day detox and learn what's going on now that you've reached (peri-) menopause.

I’m Maria Quintana-Pilling, a Certified Functional Nutritionist & Lifestyle Pactitioner, Natural Chef, and more importantly, a TOTAL FOODIE.  

I know what it’s like to try every diet that’s out there, including detoxes that limit what I can eat to just a few items or force me to drink nothing but liquids for days. That might work for some people, but truth be told, it’s never worked for me. In fact, I have a deep, dark and dirty detox secret: I used to despise detoxes and I cheated all the time!! I’d start out on a 5-day juice fast only to find myself stuffing my face with cheese, crackers, and whatever else was in reach just because I’d be soooo hungry and miserable just a few days into the program.  

I’ve worked with hundreds of clients who have never found a detox that works for them, their body, and their busy lifestyle. That’s why I created the 5-Day Detox. The 5-Day Menopause Detox is perfect if you:  

  • Want more energy for your busy and demanding life 
  • Find yourself dragging at 3:00 PM and use sugar and caffeine to make it through the day 
  • Feel depressed or unable to cope with daily stressors
  • Have irregular, heavy or light periods
  • Experience PMS, mood swings or food cravings
  • Work out a ton and still don’t get the results you expect 
  • Want to hit the reset button on your metabolism so your body becomes a fat burning machine 
  • Get breakouts on your face, shoulders and back even though you thought you were done with acne 

If you’re eating right and exercising, but still not losing the weight – it’s likely your body needs a detox! Detoxes are so important in our busy and overscheduled lives. Let’s face it – we live in a polluted world, and even if we’re eating the best foods and drinking the best quality water, we’re still exposed to toxins in the environment all around us. Even more, many of us are eating foods that are filled with chemicals, artificial substances and pollutants, and it’s more than our bodies can handle.  

Here's what past 5-day detoxers have said...

“I really am feeling fantastic and plan to keep eating this way, introducing some of the things I miss most as you suggested. Oh, and remarkably I've lost five pounds! I can't believe it as I didn't think it would be possible since I never felt hungry, or if I did I just ate something that you had recommended. I've been starving myself for weeks with no change in the scale and after just five days of eating your suggestions I've lost weight :) “ --Kim  

"The combo of your consult with me about my kitchen, all the recipes and checklists you provided, and doing the detox together have made some great shifts in my eating. And I'm having fun cooking again! Who knew you could make so many delicious healthy things quite easily. I am going to stick with this as long as possible not just 5 days. Thank you!!!!” --Julie  

“It's been a great week and I too, am feeling much better, flatter tummy, more digested and less bloated. I am down about 3-4 lbs and back to the place where I can usually maintain.” --Kristin  

“I'm loving this! I started on Sunday and am on day four. Down five pounds (all vacation weight but much faster recovery than normal). Your recipes are terrific. I haven't had a bad one yet! I'm enjoying the warm lemon water in the morning and the dandelion tea.” --Colleen  

“I want to do this every season to build up recipes and a rhythm. I am finding this structure you have very accessible and affordable. This really has been the most balanced detox. Thank you!” --Anne  

If you’ve been gaining and losing the same weight over and over for the last few years, a whole-foods detox can break that cycle and help you lose the weight for good. 

When our bodies become overloaded with toxins, our systems get clogged up and end up storing the excess toxins in our fat cells. When our fat cells get filled with toxins, they can’t get burned off, and even worse: we tend to store MORE fat! A detox is the only way to release those toxins from your fat cells and allows the fat to finally burn away.

Here’s what’s included the 5-Day Menopause Detox:  

  • A special Unknown Secrets to Outsmart Menopause Webinar where I will cover how to balance your hormones naturally, the key organs to nourish during (peri-)menopause and the key foods and supplements to find balance. 
  • A 5 day whole foods based detox with tons of support and guidance from me, a functional nutrition & lifestyle practioner and expert detox coach – I’m not going to let you slip between the cracks or hide out. 
  • A complete daily protocol with step-by-step instructions on what to do and when to do it. 
  • A meal plan so you’ll always know what to eat. 
  • Recipes for breakfasts, lunches and dinners along with snack and sweet treat recipes – you won’t have to wonder whether a food is “okay” – I’ll spell it all out for you.
  • Guidance on which foods you need to buy organic and which you don’t (this will help you SAVE MONEY).
  • Access to my exclusive MEMBERS ONLY Facebook group where you’ll be able to connect with me and other detoxers. If you’ve never joined a group like this before, believe me: this is the best part. 
  • A training live training call with me where I’ll explain the detox step-by-step, and you’ll have a chance to ask all your questions before we get started.

"I loved the 5-day detox. I am a visual person and everything Maria provided was very explicit, well-organized and helpful.

I have never felt so balanced and nourished." -- Flo, North Bay (CA)
