Easy they Say!

Step One: Get Focused.
Your crazy weekend happened. You ate things from your "never eat these" list, you drank more that you should have, but now it's over.

Don't beat yourself up for falling off the fitness wagon this once. Simply get back up, dust yourself off and get re-focused. Leave the past, and your slip-ups, in the past.

Step Two: Get Hydrated.
While bad eating can take on many forms, the end result is most often dehydration and water retention. The only way to restore balance is to get hydrated.

Your first priority in getting back on track is to drink plenty of water throughout your day. Start with a tall glass of water in the morning, and carry a water bottle with you.

Step Three: Get Picky.
For the next few days I need you to be extra picky about what you eat. Stick with only whole, real foods like fruits, vegetables and some lean meat. Whole, real foods will quickly help to restore balance.

Don't eat packaged foods for the next few days. This means saying no to snack foods, processed meat slices, dairy, baked goods and alcohol.

Step Five: Get Moving.
So you've put an end to the eating madness, you've hydrated, you've eaten only whole foods and you've enjoyed a recovery juiceā€¦it's now time to sweat it out.
