Lose 20+ pounts with metagenics!
on December 5, 2013
That sounds like an infomercial doesn't it? Well, it's not (I don't get paid and I wasn't given this product for free). I have struggled with weight my whole life. In my adult life I range between 230 and 310 (my highest). About a year ago, I decided to see a holistic doctor that specialized in weight loss. I saw him and his dietician and they recommended a cleanse with Metagenics products. It was pretty expensive (around $250 for all the products) at the doctor's office, but when you consider you are not eating "real" food and save that money, it is pretty much a wash.
The first time I did the Metagenics cleanse, I lost 23lbs in 2 weeks. This time around (a year later) I have lost 28lbs in just over 2 weeks. Here is the secret to the success!
First, you need all the Metagenics products: UltraClear Plus PH (I prefer vanilla), UltraMeal (I prefer vanilla), AdvaClear pills (at least 60 pills, more if you want to go longer), UltraFlora (at least 60 pills) probiotic (you can actually get any quality probiotic but I can only review this), frozen fruit (you can freeze fresh) like blueberries, strawberries, and raspberries, low fat meat (chicken & white fish mainly), vegetables, legumes, healthy oils, almonds, and peanuts. Basically we are skipping gluten and wheat.
Start off your morning with UltraClear: two scoops mixed with ½ serving of your fruit - this makes it taste much better and gives you more "food", two capsules of AdvaClear, and one capsule of UltraFlora. For a snack, you can have 12 almonds or 18 peanuts. For lunch either have 4oz of the meat or use the UltraMeal with veggies and a serving of legumes. For your afternoon snack you can have 12 almonds or 18 peanuts. Before dinner (between snack and dinner) have another UltraClear shake: two scoops of powder with ½ serving berries. For dinner, either have your 4oz of protein with an oil serving, and vegetables, or use the UltraMeal. You will also take two more capsules of AdvaClear (4 total per day). Needless to say, drink a ton of water - basically you should be drinking a water bottle every hour or so.
A side note about AdvaClear - people have reviews of side effects so if you are a small person or if you don't handle pills well, you might want to start off slow one pill a day or one pill morning and night.
The UltraClear does not taste THAT bad, especially if you add the fruits and add extra water to it (I do about 12oz), the UltraMeal actually tastes good to me, and the AdvaClear and UltraFlora capsules are HUGE. This cleanse will make your urine smell pretty much exactly how the stuff you are drinking it smells, and it won't make you go number two often - it will actually regulate you about once per day. You will start to feel great, have your hunger curbed, and drop off the pounds!
If you stick to the diet I mentioned for a minimum of two weeks, you will drop a lot of weight. I wouldn't suggest doing more than two rounds at a time. I start supplementing with extra herbs and vitamins, although you get everything you need out of this cleanse.
Once the cleanse is over, start eating healthier, smaller portions. I still use MetaGenics UltraMeal for a meal replacement during the week - usually at work.
