I recently heard about the ‘Forever Clean 9’ program via a friend and I was very curious to give it a try. As you already know, I’m all about a healthy lifestyle and I love trying different products to accomplish this!
Because toxins can affect our overall health, cleansing our bodies is very important. It’s also recommended to do this in a safe way. Off course you still need to workout daily and drink lots of water, but this product is a real keeper!
Now to clear things-up... I am well aware I'm skinny and that I don't have a need to loose weight. I say that because I know that there will be a few people who think "what is she cleansing for.. she's a size 8... she doesn't need it", etc... However, let me explain that the reason I have chosen to do this is:
A) I have always been interested in cleansing the body of unnatural chemicals and impurities. This is purely for health reasons.
B) My energy levels have been quite low lately so I am hoping that this will help me boost my overall energy and get rid of that 'sluggish' feeling.
The clean 9 program is a 9 day cleansing program. It comes with a complete box of products, all based on aloe vera, and also comes with a cute purple journal and some awesome tips.
The first two days you take some dietary supplements, drink the aloe vera gel and drink a Forever lite ultra shake so you're not living on thin-air alone. After the first 2 days you then have the dietary supplement, the shakes, the aloe vera gel plus a 600 calorie meal of your choice. This can be one meal or divided into 2 or 3 smaller meals - depending on your preference. It is a good idea to combine a small bit of exercise with the cleansing (don't over do it as you will need your energy since your calorie intake isn't as high as normal), ~20 minutes is the recommended amount!
My personal experience:
The 1st 2 days require will power like any other diet! You only have what’s provided in the pack, plus skimmed milk, and NO food at all. However, you do have a thick, nutritious, filling, vanilla or chocolate shake – so it’s not like you have nothing, and on top of that, the shake is quite tasty.
During these first 2 days I was forced to draw upon stored fat in my body for energy, thus resulting in weight loss and inch loss. Although I felt hungry it wasn’t that famished kind of hunger that makes you feel shaky when you’ve gone too long between meals.
Days 3-9 were similar to days 1 & 2 but with the addition of a 600 calorie meal per day – which is actually quite a lot for one meal! You get a booklet containing lots of recipes and meal suggestions. I also want to mention that I didn’t have any side effects while using these products, which is a huge plus. Lots of water and 20 mins of exercise per day is also recommended, even if it’s a walk!
After the 9 day program I lost ~6.5 lb. Most people lose 7-14 lb but I’m actually quite pleased! I’m still losing weight now which is good, but I’m not suprised since my eating habits have totally changed. I haven't had any desire for anything sweet and I haven’t gone back to my bad habit of snacking through the evening.
Am I glad I did it? I love the results and I think anyone should try this one! You can order the box on this amazing website! Happy cleansing darlings!
