Hey, how ya doin? I’m Cherie – wife, mom of four, and the creator of GHCL!
Back in 1999, my husband started losing weight at an alarming rate. He also began experiencing anxiety (which he never had before) and other symptoms. It was so bad, some of his family members had the AUDACITY to ask him if he was on crack. *insert BIG eyeroll*
He ended up being diagnosed with Grave’s disease (hyperthyroidism) and that’s when our journey to wellness began… well, his anyway.
Me? I wanted NO parts of it because I was very comfortable eating the way we had been.
But after hearing more about the connection between dietary choices, poor bowel health, and sickness; I decided to stop being stubborn and start (gradually) making changes.
Another motivation for change was seeing my mother, grandmother and aunts suffering many of the same diseases as one another and I realized there was a pattern I did NOT want to be part of.
What’s Get Healthy Clean And Lean (GHCL) About?
“Improve your health one day… one step… one bite at a time”
I came up with that concept because, although I USED to subscribe to a very ‘restrictive’ way of eating; I’ve since come to grips with the fact that there is just TOO much conflicting information out there.
Despite all the varying opinions & theories by the “experts”, one thing that can’t be argued is…
Your body needs proper nutrition & balance in order to function at peak performance
Therefore, this site is all about helping you get on the path to better health & wellness, starting at some very bare bones basics and WITHOUT preaching any one particular way of eating as being “the only way”.
As a former certified Raw Food Chef, I helped a lot of people get healthier and lose weight, including my daughter who suffered with severe eczema until we made dietary changes.
However, the raw food diet is definitely not for everyone and it can be a bit extreme, especially if your body isn’t quite accustomed to eating healthfully. It can be a shocker if you try and rush into something like that too fast.
Not only that, but if you’re not careful, you can set yourself up for some serious nutrient deficiencies.
You need something balanced, that isn’t too restrictive. You also need to ease into things which, again, is what GHCL is here to help you do.
