If you have read my bio, you already know that I’ve been working as a personal trainer for the last 18 years. I am always trying new products to find the BEST and MOST EFFECTIVE ones that will help my clients lose weight while maintaining their lean body mass.

My friend Kathy lost 25 pounds in 40 days.  She already had a vigorous exercise program including running, tennis, volleyball and softball.  She told me she tried a cleansing program for 11 days and had such great success, she decided to continue until she lost 25 pounds.  Then she proceeded to tell me about 20 people (I personally know) who tried this and all had success.  Rarely do I find a program that works for EVERYONE. 

Initially, I sat in Kathy’s kitchen and read all the labels.  While I liked the fact that the products are organic and not genetically modified, I still wasn’t ready to jump on the bandwagon.  I asked the rep, Catalina, to come over and explain the system and bring over some samples. After a month of research and debate, I finally convinced myself to give it a try for 11 days.  After all, the products meet my criteria of being organic, non GMO (genetically modified), and even the whey protein comes from the best place, New Zealand.

I tried the 11 day program and was blown away.  I lost 5 pounds in 5 days.  I had energy and felt great.  As a trainer, we are taught that 3500 calories = 1 pound of body weight.  So, if I use this math, I should have lost less than 1 pound (given my daily caloric intake and exercise expenditure).  3500 X 5 pounds = 17,500 calories.  I can’t possibly cut my caloric intake and exercise that much to burn an extra 17,500 calories in 5 days. 

What I realized is that the combination of natural metabolism boosting herbs, organic ingredients, and the protein/carbohydrate/fat ratio in the shake synthesizes the excess fat and the pounds literally melt off. It was so easy and inexpensive, especially compared to other cleansing programs.

Is this the only program out there?  Of course not!  Some other great programs are designed by Ann Louise Gittleman (The Body Fat Flush Plan) and by Dr. Mark Hyman (The Ultra Simple Diet). 

If you are considering trying a cleanse, I highly recommend purchasing Ann Louise Gittleman’s book, The Body Fat Flush Plan.  She explains, in layman’s terms, why people are overweight.  She narrows down the issues to what she calls the “Five Hidden Weight Gain Factors.” 

Keep in mind, with Dr. Hyman and Dr. Gittleman’s plans, food shopping, cooking, and packing food for the day is a must.  I find just that one factor alone presents issues for my clients.  Alternatively, the plan I just finished is portable, convenient and you only have to cook one meal a day.  I find this more “on-the-go” plan is easy to incorporate into anyone’s hectic schedule.
