You do not have to use the shakes that are listed in it. There are lots of shakes out there, if you justdo some research.Try GNC, they havea lot of different kinds of shake products there that don't have all the sugar and have a lot of protein. Do some research, compare nutritional info, I'm sure you will find something that will work for you.

You do not have to fast all day on the cleanse days. You can eat celery, a hand full of almonds, a small salad, veggies, it is not going to change anything if you do.

Ah I knew that this would turn into some sort of argument, I should have never posted. This is not mycleanse, I did not thinkitup. I am very happy that somebody did do the research and found something similar.I only decided to share it withall of you because it workedfor me andsaving money is saving money! All I am saying is that it is over $100 cheaper and it has worked very well for me and countless others. Edited by: raynasmom

Yogi, I was looking at the canned Optima - it has 10g. Probably could get more with the powder if you add it with milk. Or are you supposed to mix it with water? I don't know as I didn't read too much of the cleanse pdf. I just kind of skimmed it. And I'm calling them "cleanse and fast" days because that's what the dude calls it in his instructions http://www.wahm.com/forum/smileys/smiley5.gif You may want to take that up with him if his verbiage is wrong http://www.wahm.com/forum/smileys/smiley36.gif

Raynasmom, you do what works for you. I have tried many different cleanses (not any of the ones mentioned in this thread), and having done onewith whole foods, that's what I will stick with, but it may not work as well for everyone else or be somebody else's pick. I do what's best for me/my body and hope everyone does the same.If it works for you and you like it, that's all that matters. http://www.wahm.com/forum/smileys/smiley1.gif

I think we should get back to the ORIGINAL question posted by Lexi's mom... She asked for cleansing ideas.

What has been postedare ALL cleansing IDEAS.
There are MANY MANY cleanses out there & many if not all work. Some people may choose to go with one particular program while others may want to choose their own. Ultimatley, you will choose how much you want to pay, how you want to cleanse, and what you put in your body while doing the cleanse.

If you want to follow this particular cleanse thathas been brought up, I suggest you look into good quality whey protein. There are many many brands out there - and who ever wants to do this, also needs to do the research on it. I agree that Slim Fast has way too much sugar. IMHO, there are better alternatives for a meal replacement.

Just my 2 cents. http://www.wahm.com/forum/smileys/smiley1.gif

Have a GREAT day everybody!

Yes you can mix with skim milk. Seriously, though do some research if you are interested in trying it. GNC has whey protein shakes, you will spend a few dollars more. The person I got the info from probably listed slim fast as the shake because it was the cheapest way to go, he did say that there are alternatives and there are. Go to GNC.com and research the shakes there.
I think that it is great idea to get back to the original post. I shared the info I received because it is something that worked for me. Everybody will choose what they believe is best for them, do your research.Edited by: raynasmom

Hey guy, Meg was just adding her 2 cents and being helpful as she understands that not everyone had $189 for 9 days worth of products and offered a solution for someone whom price would be an issue. The vitamin supplement mention in the ebook is a good one. Slim Fast is not the best protein source but again, it's called "The Poor Man's Cleanse" and as such it's focused more on price. Jay Robb Protein would've worked well for this cleanse and it's very inexpensive and has 25g of protein per serving and no added sugar or additives. I believe ISA has 24 so again it's not that far off - 2 days of fasting followed by 5 days in which you drink 2 shakes and eat one meal, followed by another 2 cleanse days. So for those who want to cleanse but don't have $189 to slap down, it could be an alternative and I personally appreciate the heart of the author in wanting to share the information and help others. I didn't see anything infringing on the copyright of Isa. IMO you can't copyright fasting. And I think Slim Fast was actually thefirst to say "A shake for breakfast, one for lunch, and a sensible dinner lol."

Anywho lol, Debi girl, you know I'm gonna say the Master Cleanse right?[img]smileys/smiley36.gif[/img]Edited by: FV Mom

FV Mom 05-30-2007 08:36 AM

Debi, there's also Jay Robb's 3 Day Fruit Flush. I know several people who've lost weight on it. No fasting involved. Oh Jenn, Jay's Fruit flush is a lot like week 2 of the candida cleanse.

Here's his site: The ebook is only $5 (You have to buy your own fruit[img]smileys/smiley36.gif[/img] http://www.jayrobb.com/He also has a new 14 day fruit diet on his site. I'm about to order...if hubby asks I'm blaming youhttp://www.wahm.com/forum/smileys/smiley36.gifEdited by: FV Mom

Isa cleanse is a superior cleanse--however, the poorman's cleanse will take off pounds too. Depends on what you are wanting. My biggest issue would be the SUGAR--which is why I would want to find another suitable protein shake. I already use Spirutein shakes (fructose sweetened)and getting ready to try Rainbow Light Protein Energizer shake (sweetened with stevia). BTW, vitacost.com has good prices and cheap shipping and has the vitamin powder mentioned in Poor Man.

Is that a recent pic? You look FANTASTIC!!! [img]smileys/smiley20.gif[/img]

I didn't recognize you at first but knew that your username was familiar.. then I realized WOW! Angie! Whatever you're doing, keep it up!



FV Mom 05-30-2007 03:58 PM

Hey Angie, www.jayrobb.com has really high quality protein. No yukies added[img]smileys/smiley36.gif[/img]] and very inexpensive (Like 19 bucks for a 1lb can which is like 16 servings). Oh, I don't sell anything Jay Robb if anyone was wondering. I just love the guy. He's so down to earth and humble.http://www.wahm.com/forum/smileys/smiley4.gif

Okay FVMom...I know you know your stuff...so I ordered the online book for the 3 day fruit flush and I had gone out tonight and bought a GNC brand whey protein powder, but then I realized it had a sugar in it, so I ordered the powder from Jay's site. I will return the GNC one tomorrow.

Thanks for your words of wisdom.

I figure I will do best, personally, with a 3 day flush. I am not interested in dropping more than a pound or two...so if I do lose a few pounds, great...if not, no big deal.I am more interested in cleaning up my body before I start WW core next week. I am moving into eating fruits, vegies & core products like whole grains & meats. No more processed garbage, refined sugars, white/flour/bread, etc...

I just want to have optimal energy to be able to exercise more and run more...AND just have an overall healthy body.

I hope I am on my way!

I plan to start the flush on Monday of next week - butit depends on when I get the protein powder, so I might need to start later. hopefully I can do this soon so that I am done with it before we go to NYC next Saturday!
