Usually I’m pretty skeptical when it comes to any type of rapid weight loss product but after seeing success with Beachbody’s training programs I decided to give it a shot. More so for ridding my body of toxins than the weight loss factor. The 2 day fast arrived at my door along with instructions on how to best use it.
It comes in 2 small containers and advises you to start your fast on the weekend when you are not expending a lot of energy at work. You have 2 flavors to choose from: vanilla and chocolate. I chose the chocolate and it had a decent taste to it. You will take 1 scoop and add 8 ounces of water which you will need to stir vigorously or you could use a blender to get out any lumps.
You will make this shake 3 times a day replacing your meals and also drink an 8 ounce glass of water a couple hours in between each of your shakes. The first day around lunch time I was starving but after having the second shake it seemed to get rid of some of the hunger cravings.
Before going to bed for the evening I was thinking how hungry I would be the next morning but when I awoke I didn’t notice any cravings. I finished my second day with the shake and I could feel my energy starting to dwindle.
With Beachbody’s 2 day fast I did manage to lose 5 pounds which amazed me and I even started to feel less sluggish and bloated when I started eating again. It was more mental I believe as far as being able to go to 2 days without eating but it was a learning experience that I think I will continue every couple of months just to get rid of my body’s toxins.
