I love to challenge myself. When my yoga studio Balanzs told me a while ago that they were doing a yogachallenge, in which you join one yoga class every day for one month, I said HELLAYES to that! It wasn’t easy, but I managed to finish it! So when a new – not so easy – challenge came along, the answer was clear: YES! This time it was the Clean 9 program from Forever F.I.T., in which you follow a program for 9 days that will give you a kick-start to a healthier body. So I started the program and let me tell ya, it wasn’t easy!
Disadvantages : Because I had plans with friends, it took me some effort to plan my yoga class and my meals. So next time, I have to schedule that better.
I decided to have my meal in the afternoon instead of in the evening, because I was going out for a drink (tea) with a friend. So I had a salad with rucola, beans, goat cheese, smoked chicken and grilled peppers. This salad was sooo good and I also gave some to Aranka. Anna recommended me to use the My Fitnesspal app, to make it easier to create a healthy meal of 600 kcal. I like the suggestions from the book, but I’m kinda addicted to salads, so I prefer a salad. I did notice that I was more hungry after my evening shake, so I had an apple and tea without theine.
I did the Clean 9 program, and when I first opened the box it was a bit overwhelming, but when I sat down for a minute and read the instructions it turned out to be not so difficult after all. The instructions are easy to understand and it’s all explained very well. You can see exactly what you are supposed to take and it all comes with a small logbook so you can log your goals and your daily activities. I love fast results, so I was happy to see that you have to measure and weigh yourself on day 1, 3, 6 and 9. I also liked the idea of the three goals, so you’re not just randomly doing something. You can find all the information about it here. This is what was in the box:
Advantages: No afternoon slumps any more, my skin looked better, going to the toilet with more regularity.
My stomach wasn’t bothering me any more A lot of energy, I wasn’t tired any more and no more afternoon slump Regular eating pattern I finally drank 2L water a day Not using any salt any more (and that’s kinda shocking if you know me) This can be a big kick start to start eating sugar free I lost 6 cm around my chest I lost 6 cm around my waist I lost 6 cm around my upperlegs In total, I lost 6 kg.
My colleague Anna tried the Forever F.I.T. programme a while ago and her experiences made me curious about it.
