My Purium 10-Day Transformation Cleanse Experience

Disclaimer: I am not affiliated with Purium. This is just my experience with their products.

I learned of Purium through my awesome friend Nancy. I saw that she was losing weight and working out like a beast! 😀 When Jon and I were in Kauai, she let us try the apple berry Power Shake. I was kind of surprised the shake tasted as good as it did. ha So when I got home from vacation, I decided to do the 10-Day cleanse. My weight has fluctuated since high school and I’ve been every size in the rainbow. <— I know that didn’t make sense. 😛 I figured I could stick with just about any plan for 10 days.

The day before I started the cleanse, I did exactly what I shouldn’t do, I ate a gigantic meal. I’m so smart sometimes. I went to a potluck at friend’s house and had some amazing food.

And then I woke up…to start my cleanse. Eeep! The cleanse consisted of power shakes and Master Amino Acid Pattern supplements 3 times per day, a fiber drink and tart cherry juice concentrate before bed. I was allowed 3 servings of “flex foods” per day. Here are a few of the flex foods I ate during my cleanse:

Organic watermelon and blueberries

On the 7th day of the cleanse, I did something else that isn’t recommended. I barely completed a 10K run. I was planning on using my finish time as proof of time for the Disney Star Wars half marathon. Hopefully, I won’t be placed in the last corral. #slowrunnerproblems I was trying to come up with a breakfast that might fuel me through the run.

Um…yeah. This didn’t work. I bonked at mile 3. Hmmmm, 3 miles seems to be where my brain tells my body to give up. I walk/ran the remaining 3 miles. I need to put in the time to see the results. I know this. Grrrrr.

Boo the schnoodle, giving me a good luck smooch.

Back to the cleanse. By the 8th day, I was over it. LOL I stuck it out to the end but my attitude was deteriorating. I was feeling good about the weight loss but eating fruits and vegetables exclusively was making me a bitter person. Hahaha

My results: In 10 days, I lost 11.4 pounds. I lost 3.5″ in my waist and 2 inches in hips. It’s been almost three weeks and I’ve kept the weight off. I haven’t decided if I’ll do another cleanse any time soon but this experience was a good one for me.
