The cliche ‘new year, new me’ thoughts are starting to enter our minds. Yet no one ever needs to be a ‘new’ person, just someone that is taking the steps to become a better version of themselves.

The holidays for many people can be stress-inducing, especially for those with disordered eating or weight-loss goals. It’s important to remember to keep your diet balanced and that fad diets are outdated and lifestyle changes are in.

Enjoy the chocolate, the treats, and the dinners out, as the social aspect and indulgence come as part of the season. However, wherever you can, ensure you eat well, to help avoid the self-destruct mode that you can enter when your jeans are a little tight. When we eat an excess of sugar, carbs, or food that doesn’t agree with us, we tend to bloat, this happens to all of us and is completely normal, so keep that in mind and don’t be too hard on yourself.

When January starts so do our good intentions. Yet the standards we often set are too high or apply too much pressure. So Emirates Woman has curated a list combined with a juice detox, freshly delivered meals, and meal plans that take the pressure off and help you along in your lifestyle change.


Essentially offers an array of options, whether you’re looking to add the juices to your balanced diet or take part in a 3 day cleanse.
