Have you watched The Game Changers on Netflix? Please don't go changing your whole diet based on this documentary. There is a lot of misinformation and inaccurate science in there. Don't believe everything you see, hear or read about nutrition in the media. Of all the reviews I have read, this is the best so far.

Love this idea of a "reset plan." There is no need for cleanses as your body naturally cleanses itself of toxins. That is what your liver and kidneys do for you. Instead, try helping your body do its job by eating nutritious, natural, unprocessed foods.
Did you go a little crazy this weekend food-wise? Then you might need this easy reset plan.

“I’ve always been on the bigger side,” she said. “For a long time I felt like I needed to look like Shalane Flanagan or Mary Keitany to do well, especially in the marathon, where everyone talks about how lean others are . . .
