The What Lab Report #1 – Clean Program
Issue #18 March 9, 2016
The Lab — We’re not fans of cleanses but my bestie is on week two of the Clean Program and says she feels like a new person. We’re going to start with the 7 Day Program to break bad habits (weekly pasta and wine lunches, for example).
Verdict: The Clean Program has worked for so many of my friends. I’ve watched people go on it for 21 days with major success, weight loss, and feeling great but then if you stop drinking and eat a third of what you usually eat, that is usually the case. I went on the Clean Program for 7 Days and didn’t like replacing meals with shakes. Can I do it? Yes. But then a few weeks after the program I was back to my evil ways. I found a better way to go is simply to cook all your meals for a month and make sure they are all healthy and reasonable portions. The binge-purge nature of cleanses is extreme and seems to perpetuate binge phases when what we really need to learn is moderation.
