Can I eat while I am cleansing?+
This question about the cleanse makes us jump to say – Yes! When we talk about cleansing, we are talking about supporting natural processes with diet and lifestyle. We aren’t fasting or doing an all liquid diet. What we are doing is cleaning up the diet as much as possible, eliminating as much “pollution” as possible, and supporting your body’s natural detoxification processes in order to release toxins stored in fat.
We recommend eating the best quality food.Just following the principles of the cleanse will give your body a break. The cleanse is actually an opportunity to learn which combinations of foods work well for your unique body. You will learn how to put together a balanced meal, how long to wait between meals, and what it actually feels like to feel satiated from the foods you eat. In addition to cleansing, you learn a style of eating that most people continue on with (or make small modifications to) even after the cleanse is over.
Will I spend a lot of time in the bathroom?+
No! This has to be one of the most common questions about the cleanse that people don’t want to ask. The cleanse is designed to work with your real life--that is, going about your daily business of work, family, having fun--and you don’t need to take any time off from all of that to work on a healthier lifestyle! The cleanse is very gentle, and while we do support the colon and recommend daily bowel movements, you should not spend a lot of time in the bathroom!
Why don’t I just drink juice or fast to cleanse?+
While a great question, we believe that using whole foods and supportive nutrients, rather than just juices or fasting, is the best way to detoxify. Certain nutrients, including amino acids and b-vitamins, are actually required for detoxification, which is why we recommend incorporating special supplements to make sure you safely eliminate stored toxins from your system. While fasting is part of many traditional cleansings, it is not part of our program. We are working on stimulating the metabolism, improving hormonal balance, improving body composition and more--and regular meals are required to give your body the right fuel to do that.
Can I start in between sessions for an in-person class?+
While not recommended if you’d like to start between the first and second classes, we can accommodate your needs. However after that point we don’t recommend starting late since following the class content will likely be more difficult and we want you to be as successful as possible. Our virtual program is perfect if you’d like to get started in between in house sessions. Let us know if you have any questions about the cleanse--we’re happy to work something out with you.
What products do I need?+
For questions about cleanse products please see our cleanse packages. Many people like to incorporate certain products which help save time and make the cleanse easier (like protein shakes), and others to support optimal detoxification. If you want to achieve maximum results then we highly recommend our packages.
If you aren’t sure what products are right for you or if you want to try cleansing without products please call us at 925.280.4442 so that we can discuss your specific goals and answer any questions about the cleanse.
I eat healthy foods and feel good so what can cleansing do for me?+
Participating in the cleanse doesn’t mean you currently eat terribly and aren’t doing anything right. It’s a wonderful chance to also look at your eating habits and behaviors, to step back and question if you’re feeling as good as you possibly could. Many people simply accept their current reality as the only one, without realizing a higher potential is possible. And, even despite our best efforts, it’s simply impossible to avoid all toxins in the world we live in today. Our bodies are constantly bombarded with chemicals and unnatural substances--things our bodies were not designed to deal with. We ingest toxins simply by breathing, drinking water, using skin care products and eating seemingly healthy foods.
Cleansing is an opportunity to eliminate stored toxins from the body. Fatigue and lethargy are some of the most common reasons for visits to the doctor, and toxic burden is thought to be related in many of the underlying issues. Other signs of toxic buildup include poor digestion, mood disorders, brittle hair or nails, skin rashes, brain fog, fat storage and more. Many people come to the cleanse for one reason and end up seeing many other unexpected benefits like better sleep, mental clarity, energy, mood, digestion, and more.

Will I lose weight?+
We get a lot of questions about cleansing and weight loss. The CambiatiCleanse is a great way to jumpstart weight loss. Because many toxins are fat soluble, you must incorporate the right nutrients into your diet to support the elimination of those toxins, and thus, the release of extra fat storage. Detoxification works wonderfully to accelerate fat loss, and many people enjoy that along with the other benefits of the program. Whether you want to lose 5 pounds or 85 pounds, the cleanse is a great way to work on those goals.
However not all participants want to lose weight. For clients who are looking to gain weight or simply improve body composition, they follow the same program just with minor modifications. The cleanse helps bring the body into balance, which will help you attain your ideal body composition.
Will I be hungry?+
This is also high on our list of questions about the cleanse! The quick answer is no. We recommend balancing your meals in a specific way so you will not be hungry between meals. In fact, the cleanse is where many people finally learn how to create balanced meals that keep them satiated so they don’t need or want to snack. It does not require tons of willpower to succeed, and the cleanse is designed to make you feel more vibrant. We even have specific detoxification support products to prevent hunger.
Can't I just drink teas or take herbs to cleanse?+
While the cleansing supplements we recommend contain herbs, and some people drink detox tea during the program, our program is so much more than that. Detoxification requires certain nutrients, including protein, to function optimally, which is why we recommend incorporating supportive supplements in addition to a very clean, healthy diet. It’s important to put the best quality fuel (in the form of your clean diet) into your body as you support the elimination of toxins. If you have any questions about products used during the cleanse, please ask!
What if I like a specific cuisine?+
We all have our favorite foods and there’s no question you can enjoy any type of cuisine during the cleanse. Whether you like Thai, Mexican, Italian, Indian, Chinese… you can incorporate any flavors you enjoy into the foods you eat during the program. It’s not all salads and bland food, and your meals during the cleanse can be just as delicious (and probably more so!) as the meals you ate before the cleanse. If you’re curious what types of foods you could eat during the cleanse, please look through our recipes.
What if I am a vegetarian or vegan?+
Eating low on the food chain is a great way to support your cleanse, and vegetarians or vegans have tons of options during the cleanse. You do not have to eat any animal products at all! The cleanse course materials explain how to combine vegan sources of protein to make sure you get the nutrients you need, and you can always ask us as many questions as you like!
Do I have to change my exercise routine?+
Exercise is a wonderful addition to the CambiatiCleanse and encouraged for everyone (though it’s not required to benefit from the program). We have had many athletes and active people participate in the program with great results. The cleanse will help boost your metabolism and make your body function more efficiently so you can continue your current exercise regime or try our recommendations. The cleanse helps you fine tune your performance and help you discover more energy and vitality. We encourage you to speak to your health care provider before starting any new exercise program. For those new to exercise, we recommend you work with a trainer so he or she can answer your questions about proper form and technique.
Can my child cleanse too?+
Great question! Eating a CambiatiClean diet is great for the whole family--though kids won’t officially “cleanse” along with you. Simply eliminating certain foods from their diet will give their systems a break. An allergy elimination diet, like we do during the cleanse, is a great experiment for everyone in the family. Having the entire household on board during your program also helps you succeed. Parents often tell us that it is a positive experience to share with their kids—from experimenting with new foods to uncovering any hidden food intolerances. Parents have a great opportunity to be role models for the healthy lifestyle they want for their kids. Since the cleanse isn’t about restriction or deprivation, it is a nice, healthy way to shift family eating habits.
Note: Adding additional cleanse elements is not recommended for children under 16.
