Happy New Year from The Master Cleanse! From all of us at TheMasterCleanse.org we hope you rang in the new year with friends, family and your health and wellness in mind.
With the new year comes a new ambition on weight loss, diet and cleanse for most. Other than participating in our incredible group cleanse that begins January 14 (and has an optional ease-in starting January 11), there are also plenty of other things that you can be doing to make sure that you stick to your New Year’s goals.
That said, we wouldn’t want to give you too much of a read on New Year’s Day, so here is a quick and easy article to help you get ready for your goals heading into the New Year.
Less than eight percent of people are successful at keeping their New Year’s Resolutions. And it’s no surprise that the top resolution from 2012 was to lose weight, according to a study from the University of Scranton.
Is losing weight impossible, or are we just going about it the wrong way?

Even the most disciplined people will encounter roadblocks and setbacks. Zavala says it is important to identify potential barriers and make a plan to overcome them before starting.
“A vast majority of my patients cite lack of planning as a reason for their weight gain- when we lack a plan of how to handle obstacles to adopting our new behavior, we usually revert back to our old ways,” Zavala said.
