What do you do after the Clean 9 Cleanse?

The Clean 9 is a full body cleanse, and if you don’t already know all about it please take a look at my previous posts about the Clean 9, and my earlier video diaries of day 1, day 2 and day 5 of the cleanse.

Update – December 2016 – The FIT program has been updated with a new pack and fabulous new exercise plans and support and changed to a more flexible 15 day programme – read my latest post https://siliconbullet.wordpress.com/2016/12/12/new-forever-f-i-t/ for more information.  The supplements and shakes still remain the same as in this video.

I have reached the end of my cleanse, and I feel fabulous!  I feel less bloated and I have increased energy and  I was told I was ‘glowing’ by a customer this week too, which really helps my self confidence.

But once the 9 days are over , what do I do now? Take a look at my Day 9 video diary to find out

F.I.T. Program

My FIT 1 Pack

My FIT 1 Pack

The F.I.T. 1 program, is a 30 day regime which allows you to continue towards your weight management goals in a sustainable, healthy way F.I.T. 2 builds lean muscle, tones and transforms your body and is the third step in the program.

F.I.T 1 and F.I.T. 2 both come with everything you need to follow the program, plus an information booklet with full details to help you achieve the results you desire.

The main product I find which helps me maintain my weight is the Forever Lite Ultra Shakes, which I use to replace my breakfast every day, or when I just don’t have time to prepare a healthy meal.  They are just so convenient and prevent me grabbing for the wrong kinds of foods.

Take a look at this video all about the shakes, which I prepared for an online informaitonal event my Forever team did together to promote the weight management products.  It’s my first attempt at a ‘shopping channel’ type informational video, so be kind and not too critical!

Cleanse verses diet – why is the Clean 9 so successful?

How I have Changed

How I have Changed

January is the month of diets and cleanses after the excesses of Christmas – but which should you choose – and if you have to do a cleanse or diet every January, then does it really work for you?  I had followed this pattern for years of losing a little weight through the year but then come Christmas, New Year  and two family birthdays, all in 10 days, I would still find myself in the same position needing to lose weight again each January.

So how have I turned things around and changed my life in the last year, which means I am starting 2013 already at my target weight, and I don’t have another year of frustration to look forward to? The secret is the Forever Living Clean 9 Cleansing Program.

Diet vs. Cleanse

One of the complex ways the liver deals with impurities is to increase body fat to wrap up these impurities to protect the body from their influence.  Think of all those take-away meals and sweet treats you eat through the year and especially at Christmas. The problem with a traditional diet is you lose the weight, but those impurities remain so you actually have a higher percentage of impurities in your new slimline body.  Your lean body mass decreases, which means your metabolic rate slows and you burn less fat.  When your body senses an increased level of these impurities it goes into emergency fat production – and when you return to normal eating your weight rebounds, and quite often you end up heavier than when you started.

Traditional Diet Vs Cleansing

Traditional Diet Vs Cleansing

Kicking off your healthy eating plan with the Clean 9 Cleanse means that your body sheds the impurities during the 9 day program, which means you feel healthier overall, and with fewer impurities in your system, your body sheds the fat and increases your lean body mass.  A higher lean body mass means you burn more energy even when at rest and you have a higher metabolic rate.  You need to increase your exercise levels as part of the process – the advice whilst on the detox is a minimum of 20 minutes’ exercise each day.

This means that when you finish your cleanse and go back to normal (but hopefully healthier) eating patterns – or move onto the 2nd stage offered by Forever Living – the F.I.T.1 program – you don’t rebound back to your former weight but have an excellent platform to continue your weight loss and achieve your personal goals – whilst feeling healthier and having more energy.

My Story

Wii Fit Screen Shots 2010-2012

Wii Fit Screen Shots 2010-2012

Personally, after my hip replacement in 2007 (see my previous blog post on Looking back and Going Forward) I decided that I needed to make my hip last as long as possible by shifting my excess weight and having a more active lifestyle.  I lost more than a stone during the first year (2010) with supplements and a slight increase in exercise, but gained quite a bit back over that first Christmas. So I started again in January 2011 and this time lost another stone by calorie counting and increasing my exercise levels … but from the September of that year I was stuck again.  I was then getting really fed up with the constant calorie counting – and although I increased my exercise levels (and discovered Zumba) I was just stuck on a plateau.  People did start to notice my weight loss though, as the exercise was changing my shape.

The change came on April 2012 when I was introduced to Forever Living and did my first Clean 9 cleanse.  At last I shifted off the plateau and reduced my weight – but more importantly, I was able to move down 2 dress sizes as my figure noticeably changed shape – as I had  more energy than I knew what to do with and my exercise levels rocketed.  I started getting compliments wherever I went – I have to admit I feel great.

So, going forward – I don’t need to calorie count any more, but I have improved my diet generally – and I did a 2nd Clean 9 cleanse  in November to build on my success.  I am keeping the exercise levels up but I know if I slip back into bad habits I now have the tools to stop myself – and the usual rebound of putting the weight straight back on when you return to your normal everyday diet has not happened.
