Never, ever been one to calorie count or diet, however I tend to eat a lot of junk, then rather bizarrely lie awake at night wondering why my stomach makes strange groans at me.
It’s quite gross to say but, I often feel bloated, until I go to the toilet that is..
Since starting to build my business with Forever in March, I hadn’t really focused on recommending any of our Weight Management products. Although I know others have great success with the strand, some build their entire worldwide business with Weight Management as their sole focus. However, I was a bit nervous to recommend it to any of my customers for various reasons.
A) I hadn’t tried it
B) I didn’t know enough about it
C) I weigh 8 stones 4lbs so didn’t think I could try it myself, therefore had never planned on trying it.
Summer, (if you can call it that) is here and more frequently at company events I began to overhear team members talk about how they had sold 7, 10 and even 15 Clean 9′s last month, (May). In business as Lord Sugar would say ‘you have to smell whats selling’ and if there’s any time that people may want to loose weight, it’s before they show off their beach body on holiday- RIGHT NOW! I knew I had to quickly gain enough knowledge about the Weight Management products to be able to talk to people about it. So, I booked myself on to an in house company training with our Nutritionist.
She told me a lot! but I mostly learnt…
The Forever Nutri- lean is a safe and natural two step process for selective weight loss, consisting of a fast track Clean 9 detox with a follow on long term weight loss plan, Nutri- lean. Different metabolisms will experience different rates of weight loss. On average customers lose a dress size (10lbs) whilst cleansing their body of unnatural chemicals. Day 1 and 2 speed up the fat loss process, cleansing you from the inside, as toxins attach themselves to fat cells. Fat cells therefore can’t shrink whilst surrounded by nasty toxins. During days 1 and 2 your body rests, as it absorbs the nutrients from the Aloe for cleansing, therefore your organs can concentrate on doing what they’re supposed to be doing. Most ‘diets’ don’t work as on many of them you’re not eating the way you would after you come off it. If you’re getting fewer calories, you’re getting less nutrients, which results in the slowing down of your metabolism to conserve and protect vital organs and tissue, therefore when going back to your regular eating habits you put the weight back on and sometimes more afterwards, also known as yo-yo dieting. The Forever Nutri-lean programme is designed so that you are provided with all the vitamins and nutrients your body requires, whilst the Amino acids, Chromium and minerals in the supplements will help you, break down sugar for the body to use whilst giving you energy and boosting metabolism, helping you build lean muscle tissue. You will also need to drink a minimum of 8 glasses of water. On Day 3 you can then introduce a 600 calorie meal.
They say that life starts at the end of your comfort zone, so staring all my fears right in the face, I booked a date to start my detox, July 1st.
I say booked a date, as I had to ween myself off my sugar addiction and because my diet is isn’t particularly healthy.
Average Diet before detox:
Breakfast: Aloe Freedom Gel, Ginger Beer, Banana, Tea
Brunch: Packet of Crisps, Ginger Beer, left over chicken wings
Lunch: Tea, Corned beef and cucumber sandwich on white bread, Ginger Beer
Dinner: Pan fried lamb cutlets, potato, asparagus, yorkshire puddings, Ginger Beer/Water
Supper: 1/2 glasses of wine, Packet of Crisps/Cashew nuts
I religiously drink my Aloe in the morning, but looking at the rest, no wonder I was feeling sluggish! Recently, I seemed to have developed this constant bloat on my face, so was happy that I might be able to reduce the toxins in my body causing that water retention.
Detox Day 1:
I must admit as soon as it hit 11am I was standing right by the fridge ready to mix up my shake. I am used to taking all of the products in the pack, however I wasn’t really confident about what they did until now. The Garcinia really helped to balance my blood sugar and I think I’ll continue on taking that after the detox is over as it contains Safflower oil proven to do wonders for the skin, hair and nails.
I went to yoga in the early evening and took my bee pollen snack with me. Anyone who practices yoga will know that there’s a point in the lesson where the teacher says, “and now all prepare for a shoulder/head stand”, Don’t do any type of upside down yoga whilst on this detox, no no no!! I thought my head was going to burst.
My mood wasn’t great, at all. Apologies to anyone whose head I bit off on July 1st, I went to bed early (around 2 am, yes that is early) just because I felt really lethargic. I’d been for a pee many times more than I thought humanly possible.
Detox Day 2:
My business mentor came to visit me in the morning, and when she walked up my drive in her short sleeved camisole, I did feel like chopping her arm off right there and then, putting some seasoning on it, 20 minutes, in the oven, bosh! But apart from that I was heavily distracted in terms of cravings.
By now I had switched to Aloe tea, a herbal tea which needs no milk and more importantly is caffeine free. So, when I went to visit my brother for the afternoon and I was offered a cup of tea, as a dedicated tea drinker (who carries around non dairy milk in my handbag incase ever offered tea), the staff questioned my answer. “What do you mean your detoxing?”, Without even trying to I sold my first two Clean 9′s, all because I now had some personal experience.
Still felt tired, but had spent most of the day upright, so no headaches. Still peeing lots but began to enjoy checking out the toilets everywhere I went.
Detox Day 3:
I had quite a ‘busy’ day at work as I was out and about a lot, and took my bee pollen with me again. I had taken 4 supplements of the super food before 1 o’clock, so you can imagine how buzzing I was. Today was the first day I felt good, my bowel didn’t feel stodgy and my eyes looked a bit brighter.
I weighed myself and I’d lost 3.5 pounds, (which is still an average weight for my height!) but I had so much more energy, and dare I say it, I was pretty pleased looking in the mirror! Not that I was intending to loose any weight, but if I was heavier I probably would’ve lost more. THIS is why I stopped.
You can safely detox for 3 days. However you must be clear on your aims before starting, are you detoxing? Or do you want inch loss over 9 days? If your really serious about the inch loss, are you prepared to do a minimum of 20 minutes exercise a day? Ultimately, are you ready to change your body and think about what you put in it?
For those who want to sleep better, want more energy, want to get in shape, want that beach body… do you have a special event coming up? getting married? bridesmaid or even the groom? If you seriously want to be healthy, to look and feel diamond this is the detox for you.
For the month of July ONLY I have requested VVIP prices for all of my customers who want to try the 3 day and 9 day plan- you won’t find these prices anywhere else WITH a 60 day satisfaction money back guarantee, honestly!
