I found a great deal online for a detoxifying cleansewhich includes detox nutritional supplements, natural vanilla DXB meal replacements (whey protien) and a meal guide. I’ve kind of always wanted to do a cleanse… not to lose weight, just to be/feel healthier (at least for a little while!). Has anyone done one? What did you think? Should I do it?

what brand is it?
I do shakeology… which is from beachbody, and I know they have a new cleanse coming out…. it is to alkalize and “restart” the body. i am going to try it. http://beachbodycoach.com/AshleysFitness

I have seen a lot of people do cleanses & it basically messed up their metabolism & caused them to poop a lot, get deyhdrated, and threw off their electrolye balance. In all fairness, I don’t know which brands they used.
In my opinion, the best way to “cleanse” is to EAT CLEAN and DRINK WATER. Your liver & kidneys already filter out stuff, and if you don’t put a bunch of junk in, there won’t be a bunch of junk to clean out, know what I mean?

@DaneLady: Your liver & kidneys already filter out stuff
This, exactly! Your body was designed to handle itself and clean itself. There is no real scientific evidence that suggests that cleanses work (the Mayo Clinic advises against them, as do most nutritionists/dieticians). If you are going to do one, I’d advise checking with your doctor first.

this is the link to the cleanse i was talking about… you still eat all your meals. its not a cleanse where you ONLY drink that without food the rest of the day.

The only cleanse I’ve ever considered is one from my naturopath. For 24 hours, you only drink water ( or herbal tea/lemon water) and then for 6 days you eat brown rice, vegetables and fruit. This is essentially a simplified ‘clean eating’ cleanse, and I know that it helps me break my sugar/carb addiction.

@redsmarties: This exactly – i only ever did a cleanse/detox under a Naturopaths care, with follow-up afterwards. There were no crazy shakes, it was basically a hypo-allergenic diet. It was tough, but after 3 weeks I felt fantastic.
