Lately I have been hearing a lot of people get into this whole “Nutritional Cleansing” programs. From the pictures I have seen, I definitely have seen great results. But, are these nutritional cleansing products truly healthy for you, and is it the best option to get that hot summer bod?
Some well known nutritional cleansing products are Herbalife and Isagenix. When you begin the program, you can only eat and drink their products. These products are enriched with vitamins and antioxidants which flush fats out of your body on average…just 30 days. But, if all you’re eating is chemically created bars and shakes….how is that beneficial in the long run? I’m sure eating a healthy apple as a snack vs. a “fruit bar” that did not grow off a tree is way better and healthier. Sure, eating a nutritious and healthy diet takes longer to see weight loss results, but I feel it’s a better option for my health overall. Anything that is not grown, and packaged obviously has been altered with un-natural components, so ok…..you lose weight….but what will your long term health be like after ridding your body of actual food? I would love to hear what you all think? Have you ever tried these nutritional cleansing products? What have your results been? Have you gained the weight back on after stopping the program?
