I feel like I’ve gained weight, is that possible?

Bloating or sluggish digestion at the beginning of the cleanse might cause these feelings. You are doing some deep cleaning. We recommend putting the scale away and following the cleanse each day as outlined. If you’d like to discuss weight loss goals with a Health Coach, you can book a free session here.

It feels like I need an energy boost, what can I do?

It is not uncommon to feel tired at times during the cleanse. Typically this occurs towards the start of the cleanse, and eases with time. Prolonged fatigue is usually a result of not eating enough, sluggish digestion, over-exercising, not getting enough rest, or an underlying health condition.

Here are a few tips you can try to boost energy:

  • Rest as much as possible. Try not to overexert yourself when your body calls for relaxation.
  • Be sure you are drinking plenty of water; at least half of your body weight in ounces daily.
  • Fortify your shakes and mid-day meal with healthy fats, or increase portion sizes as needed.
  • If active, try reducing your exercise routine until your energy begins to increase. It is recommended to support workouts with supplemental sustenance such as a pre- or post-workout snack.
  • If your bowel movements are irregular, try Eliminate, a Magnesium Citrate supplement that promotes bowel movements and offers additional cleanse benefits.  
  • Increase your consumption of dark green leafy veggies
I am experiencing constipation, what can I do?

Constipation can be a common side effect of cleansing, especially at the start of a cleanse. Yeast and bacteria are dying off and the body is acclimating to the new diet and supplements - this can result in constipation, bloating, strange looking bowel movements, water retention, etc. Here are a few things you can try:

  • Try Eliminate, our delicious Magnesium Citrate supplement which helps naturally promote bowel movements.
  • Drink plenty of water throughout the day. Aim to drink at least half of your body weight in ounces daily.
  • Eat plenty of leafy green veggies or have a green juice that is low in natural sugars.
  • Start your day with a warm cup of water with lemon to get things moving.
  • A colonic can be a helpful way to move things along and is believed to offer additional health benefits, such as improved energy, digestion, increased nutritional absorption, and more.

Does my cleanse kit need to be refrigerated?

All contents of the Clean Program kit are shelf-stable.

Can I take other supplements while on the program?

We recommend pausing all other supplements while cleansing, as your program will have you covered in essential vitamins, minerals, and nutrients. If you are taking any prescribed medications or supplements, it is important to check with your doctor before beginning the Clean Program.

Can I take over-the-counter medication while on the program?

We suggest avoiding over-the-counter medication while cleansing. Reach out to us for natural alternative recommendations.

Can I swap my dinner shake and my lunch meal?

The shake-meal-shake protocol is designed for optimal digestion and detoxification; it is not recommended to swap your evening shake for your midday meal. However, if circumstances require this, we advise only doing so once per week.

What if I forget to take a supplement packet or probiotic?

Simply move on to the next dose and save any extras for the end of your program. Do not double up on packets, instead plan to use them during the Reintroduction period.

Can I skip a meal if I don’t feel hungry?

We recommend preparing a very simple cleanse shake of the packet mixed with water or non-dairy milk instead of skipping a meal. The Cleanse Shake nutrients are important to receive daily.

What if I want to maintain my weight and not lose any muscle?

Those looking to maintain weight/muscle mass can fortify all meals with additional protein, healthy fats, and increased calories from cleanse-approved foods and include clean snacks, if necessary. Email support@cleanprogram.com with any further questions.

I noticed that my urine is a different, bright color - why is that?

It is common for urine to turn bright yellow while doing the program, due to the presence of B vitamins in your shake packets. Your body simply excretes what it doesn't need - it’s perfectly harmless.

What should my lunch portions look like?

Portions vary from person to person; we recommend preparing a balanced meal of lean protein, whole grains, healthy fats, veggies, and leafy greens. Pay attention to hunger cues. We suggest eating until about 80% full for optimal digestion.

My product is expired, can I still use it?

We do not recommend using products past the expiration date.

Can I snack on the cleanse?

Snacking on the program is fine, but we do encourage keeping an eye out for emotional eating cues or eating from habit. If hungry often, make sure your shakes and lunches are balanced and filling. If you are very active snacking can be helpful while on the program. Please note that it is important not to snack within the 12-hour window between the evening and morning shakes.
