DAY ONE: (12/17/11)
My biggest challenge today was ensuring I drank a full glass of water with my two cleanse pills. To say I’m not a morning person would be a great understatement; I would punch morning in its face if I could locate it. I popped my two pills after my shower and went about my day. I did notice I was slightly less hungry than normal around lunch time, but it may have been a placebo effect from my eagerness to see some actual results.
The second set of pills went down at around 4:30pm. No real noticeable effects in the evening. I will admit, I am a bit afraid of the “cleanse” part of this program. Here are a few things people say about cleanses in general and the Jillian Michaels program:
“Vitamin deficiencies, muscle breakdown and blood-sugar problems — not to mention frequent liquid bowel movements — are some of the seriously unpleasant drawbacks”
“Side effects include irritability, headaches, insomnia and possible stomach irritation.”
“Is blood in urine happened anyone to else while using the Jillian Michaels Detox?”
“I took this product for only 2 days and I have become very dehydrated, aside from the intense migraines!”
So far, I am happy to report that none of the above apply to me and I’m sure you can already guess that I hope they don’t apply in the future. Day one has come and gone without too much fanfare. I’ll weigh in at day seven and report any weight loss or gain.
