We’re back with Tony and I this week as we discuss a heavily talked about topic in not only the plant-based world but in our society in general today…protein! Today we delve into the truth about protein and everything you need to know to feel and look your best! We discuss all things protein-related and how it became the mainstream, go-to macronutrient in American diets believed to do everything from help us lose weight to give us energy.

But can you overdo protein?! (Hint…it’s a big huge YES!). We  discuss how exceeding the minimum requirement of protein, which is very common in the Western diet, can lead to very aging and detrimental health effects. Finally, Tony and I discuss how the Beauty Detox Lifestyle provides more than enough protein to keep us healthy, toned and beautiful.

Next, my very special guest is Jen Gonzalez, who is a respected colon hydrotherapist. We talk candidly about poop and what colonics can do for you. We cover many frequently asked questions when it comes to this service. We also discuss how colon hydrotherapy could be potentially a really great tool for enhanced detoxification if (and that’s a big if!) administered properly by the right therapist and approached in the right way.

Jen also discusses how she got into colon cleansing and why she is so passionate about it. Jen shares information about her website, the “Doody-Free Girl”. She has locations in New York City and northern New Jersey.
