Summer is almost over. And looking back at all the fun...

Late evening runs to your favorite ice cream shop. All day barbeques. Burgers. Pasta salad. Evening get togethers. Frozen margaritas. Food fests. Garlic fries. Outdoor concerts in the park. Beer. Wine. Carnivals. Lemonade. Cotton candy. Faires. Funnel cakes. Baseball games. Brats. . . 

It was a great summer! BUT...

With your daily routines turned upside down because

 it’s too hot, your on vacation, or you have family is in town, 

the summer months added unwanted pounds or, even worse, brought on more hot flashes!

And losing the weight isn't as easy as when you were in college...

Back when the weight just melted off after a few intense workouts, starving yourself, and cutting down a little on your alcohol. Your tried and true tricks don't work anymore. 

And no matter what you try, your menopause symptoms are getting worse. 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 reset your hormornes so you can lose the weight and calm those flashes.

I’m Maria Quintana-Pilling, a Certified Functional Nutritionist & Lifestyle Pactitioner, Natural Chef, and self-proclaimed foodie!  

When I first started exploring nutrition for myself, I had a hard time wrapping my head around the idea of a detox. It scared me. My initial and only exposure to them was juice fasting. 

I saw a lot of people really struggle with juice fasts. I saw it first hand working at a raw food detox center. I finally tried it and it was awful. I lasted 2 days before deciding it wasn't for me. I wasn't ready for a juice fast. 

Then I got more nutrition training and discovered that you don't need to be that extreme to get results. A whole food detox with healthy balanced meals is the best way to detoxify especially when you are starting out or in the middle of your every day life.

I’ve worked with hundreds of clients who have struggled to find 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:  

  • Have hot flashes or nightsweats 
  • 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

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  

The starve-binge-starve-binge rollercoaster diet you’ve been on isn’t working because you’ve actually gained weight since you started. It's time to stop following trends and focus on a balanced whole foods diet.

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