I’m not a fan of meal replacement diets as I think as soon as you go back to ‘normal life’ you end up putting the weight back on. However, I’ve stalled in my weight loss journey and I’m looking for a little jump start. I’ve also realised that (due to tiredness and blood tests at the doctor) I’m low in a few vitamins and minerals. I’m going to try the Forever Lite Ultra 7 Day Challenge – do you want to join me?

Forever Lite Ultra £20.30 per pack (15 servings)

All I’m going to do is continue to eat a healthy diet, continue to up my water intake, continue to do my current exercise regime (yoga, zumba gold and jogging) – but swap one meal per day for a shake. It’s perfectly safe to do this for 7 to 14 days.

Forever Lite Ultra comes in vanilla and chocolate flavours – I will be using the vanilla one as I can add a banana or handful of spinach if I feel extra hungry. Plus I’m not that keen on chocolate flavoured items.

Blend or mix 1 level scoop (25g) with 300ml of milk or another drink (soy milk or water). Shake well before each use. Keep tightly closed. Store in a cool, dry and dark place.

Nutrition facts for the vanilla flavour

I’ve found after 3 weeks of ‘Couch to 5K’ I’ve not lost any weight, as I feel hungry and eat. I’m eating a main meal at lunchtime so I’ll swap an evening ‘after run’ meal for a shake.

I’ll post my results once I’ve done a week. If you want to join me then send a message to helen@aspengirl.co.uk to order your Forever Lite Ultra shake pack. I am also able to order you any of the Forever Living products at the sametime, you will need to email me your order or message on Facebook if you know me as I don’t have an FLP online shop (it costs too much).
