I joined the cleanse because I was interested in detoxifying my body. I found the protocol quite easy to follow and loved the recipes, especially the smoothies! Once I figured out how much I needed to eat I was quite satisfied, and didn’t miss my “normal” foods at all. I did not come into this program expecting to lose weight; however, I lost 6.5 pounds during the week, a lot of which seemed to be belly fat. I have lost 1.5 inches from my waist, which is where I really needed to lose it. I feel happy and energized!
