Sorry for being quiet recently, I’ve just gone back to work and teaching has been pretty crazy!
Anyway I’m here to tell you about the recent cleanse I’ve been on, C9.
The first 2 days you don’t eat a meal, you have lots of aloe Vera gel, fibre tablets and can snack on fruits and vegetables which in the booklet are called ‘free foods.’ To say I was hungry was an understatement, by the second day I really wanted to eat and I found that I lacked energy when working out.
Days 3-9 you can introduce a 600 calorie meal and I chose to have mine as an evening meal. I was so looking forward to this meal and it didn’t disappoint, however I felt the next day I was hungry and counting down the hours.
I was pleased with my weight loss I lost 2.5-3kg in 4 days and 1.5inches off my waist. But I do think this was due to a severe lack of food and the fact I was starving!
All in all I wouldn’t really recommend C9 to people who train and who are in shape already. If you have a holiday coming up and have a bit to lose then it’s worth trying it because I think it does cleanse and give a kick boost in losing weight.
I regret doing it now as my training has suffered but at least I have given it a go. I need to learn to be happy and be confident that what I eat is good for me and that I’m happy with my body.
Good luck if you do the cleanse but I honestly would recommend just eating healthy, drinking water and exercising.
