Having successfully completed my pre-cleanse I was now ready to begin my Clean9 (c9) cleanse.
In these videos I document what I am doing through day 1 of the clean 9.
Inside the c9 box, was a shaker, the (soy) protein shake, the cup to measure of the aloe vera gel, the box with all the supplements we need eg. garcinia and therm. It comes in little capsules labelled for breakfast, lunch and dinner. It also comes with a booklet with instructions.
The first stage is to take the garcinia tablet 30 minutes before eating food and before drinking my aloe vera gel.
Now that i've waited 30 minutes since taking my garcinia I can now drink my aloe gel (120 mls). As soon as you open the bottle of aloe vera gel it is important you keep it in the fridge, and remember to shake it well before pouring it too.
Forever Living also have another product called Joost which is full of vitamins and can be added just to water or your fruit juice. But it is especially handy to add into your aloe vera gel if you do not like the taste of the aloe vera. Because I have been drinking aloe vera gel for so many years, I do not have any problem with the taste because I am now used to it.
During the programme we can eat as much as we like of the food categorised as "free". And these are detailed inside the booklet.
Right now i'm drinking my protein shake and I haven't finished drinking it yet but i'm already starting to feel full. So I have no room now to eat my free foods (fruit & vege). I will enjoy them for sure when lunch time arrives!
I'm running behind schedule today so just now taking my mid morning snack consisting of the sachet of fibre to drink with 340 mls of water. I poured the "fibre" sachet into my water bottle and shook up and down before drinking. I've mixed it into my iced tea (herbal liqourice tea).
Well today has been manic! I have taken my "therm" tablets which helps with metabolism. My son and I enjoyed eating oranges and yellow capsicum. We have been eating very healthily here so goodness for all the family.
By the way, did you notice that I have discovered a new herbal tea called "liquorice tea" and I cannot seem to drink enough of it!
In summary, the pre-cleanse has helped tremendously to allow me to keep to the c9 programme. In this video I have woken up on day 2 of the c9 and I share my thoughts of how I think I got on with day 1 of the programme.
