Why 84 days?
Hi my name is Carol, founder of 84days2health
My passion in life. . . I love all things healthy and, being a qualified teacher, I love to educate. Through 84days2health, my mission is to share your journey with you, to guide and support you every step of the way and to celebrate your newfound health and wellness.
As a 54 year old competitive powerlifter, natural body builder and Trifitness athlete I have to be on top of my game, literally, all the time. I have learnt that this is only possible through consistent clean eating, regular exercise, good quality sleep and managed stress. 2 years ago I transitioned to a fully plant-based lifestyle. It has never been my intention to convert anyone to eating only plants. I am the first to acknowledge that, although it is a healthy way of life, it is not always that easy. 84days2health is based on a flexitarian lifestyle. We advocate whole foods, nutrient rich fruit and vegetables and good quality grain fed or free range protein. We discourage processed foods and those high in bad fats and sugar. For most people this is a manageable and sustainable lifestyle.
is not a diet, it’s a lifestyle, sustainable 4 life.

Out with the junk that makes you feel lethargic, bloated and leads to weight gain, not to mention feeling guilty, compromised performance . . .generally out of sorts.
