All contents of the Clean Program kit are shelf-stable.
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.
We suggest avoiding over-the-counter medication while cleansing. Reach out to us for natural alternative recommendations.
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.
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.
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.
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 email@example.com with any further questions.
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.
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.
We do not recommend using products past the expiration date.
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.
