I have always lived a fairly healthy lifestyle, (except for my love affair with BIG Aussie Red wine), and I have mainly followed the Arbonne 30 days program, but I wasn’t fully committing. So last year, I put my money where my mouth was and jumped all in. I was focused and committed to achieving my goal. I was ASTOUNDED by the changes in my body as I followed the program to the letter.
I thought it would be really hard eliminating gluten, dairy, sugar, alcohol and coffee from my diet, but it was so easy. I really enjoyed making up new recipes with the protein shake mix….. fruity cocktails of shakes, pancakes, muffins and smoothie bowls. …. For those of you who think this is a “liquid diet”, think again!
The main thing I noticed in the first 3-4 days was that my abdominal bloating was significantly reduced, and I was losing weight. Then the dreaded day 5 rolled around…. All day I had a stinker of a headache! I felt irritable and nasty….. my late afternoon I REALLY wanted WINE! (It was Friday after all, so it was also habit talking!). After having dinner (pizza with a cauliflower crust) and putting the kids to bed, I thought it was a VERY good thing for everyone involved if I went to bed too. The next morning when I woke up, I felt AMAZING! I bounded out of bed and felt full of energy! The most amazing thing was that my mind felt so CLEAR! I hadn’t realised before that I was walking around with a cloud of brain-fog. It was an incredible feeling.
I was so happy to be heading into week 2 of the program and for the rest of the 30 days, I had no desire for wine or any of the other acidic, inflammatory foods. The thing is that once you get through that first week, you feel amazing.
Over the 30 days, I lost a total of 13 pounds (6 kilos) and inches everywhere. My skin was clearer, my stomach was flatter and I had so much more energy. The bloat was gone and amazingly, I was much more regular (TMI??).
Now I do the program 3 or 4 times a year and follow an 80/20 rule for the rest of the time. The Arbonne Nutrition products have become a staple in my pantry and I have a shake every day.
