I will be commencing the Arbonne 30 days to healthy living plan on Jan 1st 2018, but what exactly is this plan?
This plan will give you more energy, reduce the inflammation in your body and may help with weight loss – hello! why wouldn’t everyone do it! So let’s look at the nuts and bolts of the program and then I’ll talk about results and if you’re still not convinced then you can follow my personal journey how does that sound?
Why 30 Days?
It takes 30 days for a new habit to develop and it also gives your digestive system a chance to relax.
Now if you really can’t commit to 30 days, you could have a tester by using a core pack which lasts 10 days. Personally though I think 30 days to help your only body out isn’t too much time to take!
What Does It Entail?
For weight loss you will substitute two meals a day with the choice of our meal replacement shakes or protein shakes. If you just want to increase your energy and feel more like the old you then just replace one of your meals a day with a meal replacement or protein shake.
You also need to take a scoop of fiber and a scoop of greens balance each day. I add my scoop of fiber to my breakfast shake (it’s tasteless) and I add a scoop of greens balance to my lunchtime shake.
You will also drink a cup of herbal tea each day – I actually really enjoy this tea and I make mine in the morning to drink after I’ve finished my breakfast shake.
The other thing you use is what are called fizz sticks and you should have at least one of these a day, but you can have 2 or 3 if you feel you need them.
Great, Well That’s Easy – Anything Else?
Alcohol, Coffee, Dairy, Gluten, Sugar, Processed Foods, White Potatoes
These things are avoided so that you can give your digestive system a complete rest while the tea provided helps as a tonic to your liver, kidneys and digestive system.
This still leaves lots of things to eat and you’ll be provided with sample menu plans and shopping lists as well as a few recipe videos to help you think of ideas – you are not alone.
What About After The 30 Days?
Well that’s up to you, some people find the ease and convenience of the shakes is perfect to keep having for their breakfast (this seems to be people who often skipped their breakfast in the past or who eat brekky on the go).
Some people have found that they feel better when they’re not eating dairy and/or gluten or drinking coffee and they will either cut right back or stop eating/drinking whichever one makes them feel bloated. This doesn’t happen to everyone by the way, but it’s amazing how sometimes cutting back on something that you usually eat/drink a lot can make you feel so different.
The majority of people that I’ve talked to who has done the 30 day plan try and do what they call an 80/20 where they continue to avoid the above things 80% of the time and only ‘indulge’ 20% of the time. What you choose to do is up to you.
Can You Repeat the 30 Days or Is It A Once Only?
Absolutely you can repeat it, we have success stories with people losing a lot of weight by staying on it for 12 months and feeling fantastic; other stories have people being on it for 60 or 90 days in order to achieve their goal.
I plan on being on it for longer than 30 days, probably more like 90 at this stage, I have a lot of weight to lose and also am loving how more energetic and alert I feel on the plan. I think it’s the best thing I’ve ever started and I just know I’m going to see it all the way through the 30 days and beyond.
But Wait, There’s More Inclusions
A private Facebook group where we share recipes, meal plans, shopping lists, support etc.
If you sign up under me I’ll also be available to be contacted and help answer queries, cheer from the sidelines and lend encouragement when you hit the 4,5 or 6 day blues (I hit the blues on day 5, but managed to stay strong).
Just go to louannecox.arbonne.com, select the country you live in (there are a few changes to the nutrition products available in each country for example in the US you can only use the protein powder whereas in Australia you have a choice between a meal replacement powder or a protein powder). Some countries also include a product called digestion plus in their kits – this product isn’t available in Australia so I can’t tell you from experience what it’s like although my cousin (in the UK) swears by it!
Next scroll down and click to sign up for the preferred clients program (preferred clients get 20% discount on all products and up to 40% on value packs). Now you don’t have to become a preferred client, but you save what it costs by being able to buy the complete 30 day pack in what we call a value pack – and it gives you the discount for a whole 12 months on anything else you want to purchase – why wouldn’t you?
Once you’re a preferred client you’ll see special packs that are available for you at a discounted rate and this includes your 30 day plan. You get to choose two different flavors of protein powder/meal replacement and two different flavors of fizz sticks. I got one of each with my first pack so that I could decide which I preferred and I’m glad I did because I prefer the citrus fizz sticks over the pomegranate ones which I was recommended.
Not sure if it’s for you? Why not pop over to my Facebook page and send me a message, I can then add you to a group that explains all about the 30 Day Plan and you can get more information before deciding if it’s for you.
