On June 8th, 2017 BELLA celebrated the book launch of Operation Cleanse written by the fabulous sister duo Indhira and Violet Santana. The event, organized by Meiling Aquino from Voguish Agency was held at Bocaditos Bistro who provided delicious bites for guests to enjoy, while sipping on wine from Vino Lucious.
Operation Cleanse has helped thousands of people take their health back into their own hands. Since 2013, participants in the program have collectively dropped over 3,000 pounds. Many have also benefitted their health by attacking the source of their chronic constipation, fatigue, insomnia, and allergies through the Operation Cleanse roadmap.
BELLA sat down with the dynamic sister duo to find out more about their work and their future plans, read on…
- What inspired you to write this book?
The results and reaction of our clients doing Operation Cleanse is what inspired us to write the book. When clients repeatedly tell you, “Operation Cleanse changed my relationship with food”, or “I’m eating clean and it tastes great and I’m not hungry”, it drives you to want share it with more people. We hope this book helps so many other people change the way they commune with food.
- How have your Dominican roots influenced your lifestyle?
- What does your normal workout/eating regimen look like?
We are all about balance; it’s the same motto we share with our clients. We get asked if we are vegans or vegetarians all the time and the answer is no. We eat whole foods 85% of the time. That means fruits, vegetables, whole grains, nuts, beans – if it came straight from the ground or a tree, we eat it. The other 15% is for us to indulge and enjoy when we do. If we go to a BBQ today, tomorrow we are making smoothies. The same goes with exercising. Find what you love, and incorporate it into your routine. If you fall off the wagon one day, simply get back on the next day.
- How do you define beauty?
- What’s next for you?
We plan to continue this route of promoting a balanced, whole food diet that begins with cleansing a few times a year. So many of our clients have transformed their bodies and minds with Operation Cleanse and we simply wan’t to more folks to feel what it’s like to really feel vibrant, and energized!
