Hi! I had posted a few weeks ago debating whether or not to do a detox cleanse because I had gained a LOT of weight rapidly and frighteningly on the loestrin/microgestin birth control pill, something a lot of active women seem to experience on this particular pill. Despite eating an average of 1300 calories a day at 5'10" and working out an hour a day for months, I was seeing NO weight loss and struggling to even maintain my weight--not normal for me at all. I had lost weight on my own a few years ago (over 40 pounds) slowly using my own plan, "Lose Weight, Save Money" which I wrote a book about, and have still kept most of it off, but I decided to do one of those detox cleanses to get the built up pill hormones in my body fat and retained water out so I could get back to my normal metabolism: the pill it turns out causes insulin resistance, which makes it extremely difficult to lose body fat. Long story short, I just completed trainer David Kirsch's 48 Hour Super Charged Cleanse. It is not as hard as I thought, and I lost six pounds in two days! I know it's water weight I need to continue eating very healthy as not to gain it right back, but I feel great and think it really helped purge built up toxins from my body. Each day I felt "toxic" when I woke up since my body was getting rid of so much garbage, then had some water and felt great. I highly recommend this cleanse and will definitely be doing it again. I even "cheated" (I don't think it's healthy to go without any protein for two days) and had some tuna and gazpacho the first day, and some celery, fat-free greek yogurt and a brown rice cake day two, and I STILL lost six pounds. I feel SO much healthier now--I really felt horrible for months on that damn pill, and though I love my gyno, I can't wait for her to weigh me at my annual in a few months to show her how this pill was ruining my life--I have a lot of blog posts from other women who gained 10-30 pounds in 1-3 months on Loestrin too. Never taking BC pills again! Hope my experience is helpful--make sure you have a physical and are in good health before doing any kind of extreme cleanse like this, and definitely don't try it if you have diabetes or another medical condition that affects your blood sugar, but it worked for me!! I don't think it's good for the heart or muscle mass to do any kind of restrictive cleanse/diet for more than a day or two because you'll just get "skinny fat"--weigh less but with less muscle and a slower metabolism, not to mention, put strain on your heart. But two days--definitely doable! For those brides (and bridesmaids) freaking out trying to slip into their gown--this WILL do the trick! Says online it's an average of 2-4 pounds--and I didn't feel hungry/like killing anyone either--amazing.
