Question GNC's complete body cleansing program

Anyone have any experience with this? I haven't done a cleanse in ages and what with these 10 extra pounds not budging even though I am following my program, I thought it can't hurt. All 10 pounds seem to be in my belly, too.

This is a 7 day program with pills to take in the morning and at night, and one powdered supplement (5 net carbs in that; I'll just put up with it).

It was a "buy one get one at half price," so I got two. It's got a long shelf life so I'm sure it won't go to waste.

Any opinions on this?

I dunno, I'm leary of anything GNC. Their sales people push people to buy too much and have burned me b4. Though you can return any gnc product there within the return window and get a full refund no matter how much you use (wink).

Perhaps the reason for not losing weight is you are building muscle?

How long has it been? How many carbs do you eat per day? How much do you exercise?

Sounds like it might be a "complete wallet cleanse".

Personally, I would make up my own cleanse program and buy everything separately, if I was inclined to do a cleanse.

My friend did a cleanse a few months ago and she said she felt great after it. (but during, it's probably not a good idea to go dancing at clubs; stay near your favorite washroom). She said she lost some weight, so give it a shot!

The weight gain was FAST (matter of days) and all in my tummy. It's NOT muscle.

I eat about 50 carbs a day - a good level for me where I can be satisfied and still loose. Maintainance seems to be about 60g for me.

So far I've been farting more (really smelly, too - ug!), but no other side effects.

I did the cleanse last yr. I felt good after. I actually just started it again yesterday. Make sure you eat with those morning pills. Good luck.
