Here at Odabash we're a fairly healthy bunch, but that doesn't mean we're not vulnerable to a 3 o'clock sweet tooth. We all try and wean ourselves off the diet demons like chocolate, coffee and carbs, at no avail - so after an encouraging encounter with yoga expert Chris James, we've taken it upon ourselves to commit to the 12 day Mind & Body Cleanse.
With over 12 years of practice in teaching yoga and remedial yoga therapy across the world, Chris James is a sought after name on the international yoga circuit and prides himself on a 'strong One-to-One approach'.
With an aim to "inspire you to transform the relationship you have with yourself and your own lifestyle"; to cleanse your system, aid with weightloss and boost energy levels by 100%, the Chris James 12 Day Mind & Body Cleanse has great expectations.
After recieving a comprehensive booklet of recipes and tips by Chris James himself, a unique collection of the highest quality supplements and a day-by-day easy to follow program, you will commence with the cleanse.
Starting with the Preparation phase which lasts 1-3 days and focuses on ensuring you are equipped with the right mind as well as foods before you start your cleanse.
A juicer is vital in your kitchen, and the understanding that certain foods will be eliminated to make way for introducing the alkaline-forming foods that are better for you, and easier to digest.
The next phase: Pre-purification demands as much raw food to be consumed as possible in preparation for the Power phase. This phase you can start to increase the supplements to aid the cleanse and promote a healthy balance of bacteria.
Moving on to the most demanding but rewarding phase - the Power phase. No meals are to be consumed but raw, fresh juices for 3 days. The body gets to have a break from normal food and has a chance to eliminate the toxins absorbed from a modern-day diet. We are reassured that even though this will be a liquid based diet, hunger will stay at bay thanks to the Supercleanse supplement which will aid in making you feel full. It is reccommended to be endured over the weekend, where you will have the opportunity to distract yourself from food temptation.
To finalise is the Maintenance phase where your digestive system has been given a full cleanse and it is time to slowly introduce solid food. Introducing fruit first, then vegetables, taking thing slowly. This is the time where we epect to see the amazing, rewarding results in our commitment to the cleanse - a refreshed mind, clean digestive system and high energy levels.
Some people even claim they have felt 10 years younger!
We're not going to say that it won't be hard, but we can definitely say it will be rewarding.

As the tumbleweed passes through Somerset House, the models get some sleep and everyone pack's up to do it all over again in Milan - we bring you our A/W 14 trend round up from London Fashion Week. Whether it be Apricot, Papaya or Tangerine, an array of Orange shades beamed across the catwalks, specifically in the form of Winter coats - the perfect way to brighten up the dreary Winter's of London. The Key: Don't let this bright colour put you off, just remember if you do go bold in orange - choose the right shade for your skin tone.
Porcelain skins can avoid looking too washed out by wearing the shade below the waist. However if you have cool tones - stay away from the red tints, Calvin Klein's true Orange skirt is perfect for you.
Olive skinned ladies look great in Apricot to emphasise their Mediterranean skin, just like Antipodium's Fur Collared Coat; and if you have dark skin? Well you will look good in any shade of Orange so take advantage and embrace this trend at full force!
Taking inspiration from Abstract art, Graphic prints were seen head to toe from Peter Pilotto and Roksanda Illinic.
Central Saint Martins taught Hiroko Nakajimi spread the graphic trend by incoorporating it into her knitwear designs, so go ahead and embrace your inner Mondrian this Winter with 'Go Graphic'.
The Key: Choose styles that focus their print on the most flattering part of your body; this way you will draw attention to your best bits and distract from any you're not so proud of!
Prom Queen and Jock are two characters we constantly see paired together, and this Autumn Winter, Ashish and Christopher Kane have taken that idea even further with some very glamorous Varisty inspired pieces.
The Varisty trend has popped up numerous times throughout the last year, but this time it's about finding a balance, making sure not to lose focus on your femininity in this look.
The Key: Sequins, glitter and pearls - the go-to embellishments from this look to keep things feminine. Push this trend with some feminine joggers, or keep it clean and smart with a body con midi skirt and minimalist heels.Culture
