I've got some incredible news to share with you!
You already know that I've been working the CLEAN
program to assist me in my effort to lose weight. I first told you about it here
I learned about CLEAN through my faithful following of Gwyneth Paltrow's blog, GOOP. Before I even finished reading this post
wherein Ms. Paltrow outlined the benefits of a diet, (and exercise) program that includes a CLEAN breakfast shake, I had already ordered my first shipment of MOVE
powders to begin blending my own morning shakes. Not only because Gwyneth Paltrow
said these products work for her, but because after reading the information about their programs on the CLEAN website
and watching the clip of Dr. Junger's appearance on the Martha Stewart show
, I realized this could be the natural, clean... no pun intended, program I've been waiting for!
Almost every morning since June 1st, I've blended a CLEAN shake consisting of one scoop of NOURISH, one scoop of MOVE, together with a handful of frozen blueberries or raspberries and 6 ounces of water and 2 ounces of unsweetened Almond Breeze. You could also blend this shake with 8 ounces of water or a full eight ounces of Almond Breeze, or Silk, if you prefer. During the day, I hydrate and eat only if I am truly hungry. In the evening, and always before 7PM, I have a balanced, healthy meal.
From day one the most incredible thing happened... I am NEVER hungry during the day. The CLEAN breakfast shake keeps me satisfied, (and energized) all day, until I have my dinner. Not once have I experienced those nasty, (junk food) cravings I've struggled with on other weight loss plans. Now that's not to say a Pepsi-addict like me didn't suffer a couple days of uncomfortable caffeine withdrawal; because remember, I don't drink coffee, and since I am allergic to artificial sweeteners, (no sugar-free Jell-O for me!) diet sodas are out of the question for a quick caffeine fix too. And, it surely doesn't mean a stress-eater like me didn't experience any stress either. Remember, my son was deployed!
Nevertheless, since the initial caffeine detox, it's been smooth sailing ever since. And when I say, smooth
, I mean that in a couple different ways... You see, the MOVE (fiber) powder in my CLEAN breakfast shake literally keeps my tummy feeling groovy and things mooooving through my system, which quite frankly is an aspect of wellness completely overlooked by other programs I've tried.
Oh, and my results? Well, I'm down 51
pounds! This time on CLEAN, (June 1 - today) also included a full week off the CLEAN plan while we traveled to see the Ranger upon his return from deployment - As well as a few off-plan days due to early June social obligations, where I wasn't as strict in my planning and meal ordering as I could have been.
Today though, my results keep me chasing even greater weight loss success. Also the fact that I truly don't want to cheat on my morning CLEAN shake, which works so hard and does so much to keep me feeling fully alive and energized all day, just naturally keeps me on track. This is going to sound corny, so forgive me, but CLEAN works hard so I don't have to. There, I said it! In addition to what CLEAN products have done for me, joining the CLEAN, on-line support community
keeps me motivated and learning about the many ways CLEAN can become my way of life; not just a temporary solution to a, (weight) problem.
Any way, last week while placing an order for more MOVE and NOURISH powders, I got to chatting with one of the super-Friendly, helpful and knowledgeable CLEAN phone ordering staff members about how much I am enjoying the program. And... Much to my surprise, she offered to put me in touch with CLEAN's head wellness coach, Jenny. Talk about knowledgeable and helpful, Jenny is Incredible! As we exchanged e-mails, Jenny suggested I might benefit from the CLEAN 21-day Detox Kit. Yes! The CLEAN 21-day Detox Kit
everyone is raving about - Jenny was offering it to me, with her compliments
!! And, when I told Jenny about all of you and my Blog, where I've mentioned CLEAN, Jenny agreed to provide me with a second CLEAN 21-day Detox Kit to give away
! Now tell me... Just how Fantastic is that?!
Before I agreed to accept Jenny's offer to try the CLEAN 21-day Detox cleanse kit, I spent hours at the CLEAN website reading information, reviews and testimonials about it. One of the most amazing aspects of the program that convinced me to try the CLEAN 21-day Detox Kit is the fact that it's for people like me... People with a life! Mine is an active life that includes a demanding, full-time job and other obligations and activities which don't permit me to be tied to my bathroom for the duration of a cleanse... Like so many other cleanse programs advise. Nope! On the CLEAN 21-day Detox/cleanse, I get to eat one, yummy lunch-time meal from the CLEAN Elimination diet plan
, which even includes guacamole! And, I get to snack too, so long as I observe the 12-hour rest period between my last and next meal. And while the objective of the 21-day Detox Kit isn't weight loss, weight loss in many cases is a side-effect of the program. How's that for a happy side-effect?!
I believe the fact that I've been following a program that already includes a daily CLEAN breakfast shake and parts of the Elimination diet too, means my system is uniquely prepared for this detox. You may want to take another look at Gwyneth Paltrow's program
