C9 Forever Living – Unboxing – A Look At What You Get Inside The Pack
This video walks you through the Clean 9 box and the products you’ll find along with some info on each.
All of the products included in the Clean 9 pack have been carefully researched and have an important role to play in the overall success of the program. Many of us are lacking in nutrients though you might not be aware of it especially if your diet is not all that varied. The supplements provided are included as they have various properties which contribute to various functions within the body eg, Garcinia, “Forever Garcinia Plus contains chromium which contributes to normal macronutrient metabolism and the maintenance of normal blood glucose levels.”
Aloe Vera Gel for example is an ideal digestive aid. Cleansing and purifying aloe vera is the perfect soothing digestive, known to be great for gastrointestinal health.
Use Forever Aloe Vera Gel first thing in the morning as a perfect pick-me-up digestive supplement, to complement your breakfast and kick-start your day. + Aloe is great for skin health and has been used for centuries. Did you know: Cleopatra used aloe vera to condition her skin and hair in ancient Egypt? Feed your skin from within by drinking Forever Aloe Vera Gel every day
Forever Fiber is designed for digestive health. It is high in fibre and low in saturated fat.
Many people don’t eat enough fibre in their diet but it is essential for good health as it helps to move other foods through the digestive tract easily.
Fibre rich foods also help you to feel fuller for longer.
Forever Therm contributes to the reduction of tiredness and fatigue in the C9 diet.
This carefully created formula contains a special combination of vitamins, including B6 and B12, which contribute to the reduction of tiredness and fatigue; the vitamin C will also contribute to a normal energy yielding metabolism.

Clean 9 Reviews – What Are Others Saying?
Are The Reviews on C9 Good or Bad?
The C9 diet plan is one of the most popular cleansing programs around and for good reason. It’s not your typical plan because most short term or detox programs, where you’ll have to cut out practically everything for a short period of time, (think lemonade diet or cabbage soup diet) are pretty restrictive, which is understandable – however the big difference is that they are not nutritious. You simply will not get the nutrition from any of these programs like you would from Forever Clean 9.
There are lots of reviews on Clean 9 around the internet and while many are from Forever Living business owners – as I myself am one – the truth is that thousands of people have used this product successfully – in fact, I just read recently that over 130 thousand C9’s were shipped throughout the UK last year. When you think about it, we all know people who could benefit from a really good cleanse and some of these people are finding their way to our fantastic range of products.
Some other sites I’ve come across reviewing the Clean 9 have given some great information on the products but they haven’t tried the program themselves and then they are promoting weight loss supplements and the products they themselves are associated with.
Anyone who has purchased a Clean 9 from me has not been disappointed with their results however you must also be realistic as to what to expect to get from the program. I have come across a couple of negative reviews where individuals really were not prepared to make changes and used the program as a quick fix without doing or incorporating anything else!
Lots of people decide to do the C9 diet to look and feel better, to get more energy and feel less tired. Its a great way to really give your system a reset and put back in a wide range of valuable nutrients.
If you just want to follow this program in isolation – without making any other adjustments to your diet or exercise – save your money – while you’ll benefit initially – if you don’t commit to changes, then you’ll find that old habits will start to creep back in.
If, on the other hand, you are ready to take control of your health, would like to get fitter, stronger and are ready to embrace the changes necessary in your routine – then a C9 cleanse is the perfect start.
One other point to mention is that Forever Living Products have a 60 day money back guarantee. If you’ve decided to give the program a go, your expectations are realistic and you are not happy for whatever reason – Forever will give you your money back! Now, think about that 130 thousand clean 9 boxes – I think you’ll agree that Forever would not still be in business or shipping that volume if people were dissatisfied.
What To Expect With Forever Living Clean 9 – What About Weight Loss?
Clean 9 will help you to look and feel better because essentially you are giving your system a break – a 9 day holiday so to speak from having to digest and break down all you put into your mouth on a daily basis. Of course you will still be eating during these 9 days BUT you will be consuming fewer calories and the focus will be on healthier options.
You may well lose weight with this program however Clean9 is really the starting point from which to build on – it is the foundation of Forever’s Weight Management program – Forever F.I.T.
It is about cleansing the body, getting rid of old, build up waste material and putting back in good nutrients, some of which you may even be lacking in. It will help you on your journey to achieving optimal health.
It is important to understand that each one of us is different – our overall health and digestion is different. Your primary focus should be to look and feel better and C9 can help you with that, and not to concentrate on weight loss.
If you reduce calories and get more exercise along with using the products as outline, you will see changes in how you look and feel. and C9 can help you with that
You may feel lighter and find you have much more energy as your digestive tract becomes balanced nutritionally and the education will begin that will not only see you through the 9 days of Clean 9 but will continue when or if you follow on to the next step of the Forever F.I.T. program, FIT15.
C9 Instuctions – How To Use Clean 9
The C9 diet is easy to follow and the pack contains an instruction booklet which is a comprehensive user guide, detailing exactly what to do each day throughout the 9 day aloe vera diet. It is well laid out with the focus on convenience and explains clearly what product to take and when.
The different supplements come in convenient blister packs for ease of use and at no time should you be confused as to what supplement you need to take. Forever have taken the guess work out of this plan to make it as simple and as hassle free as possible for anyone to follow.
DAYS 1 & 2 Are Reset Days
During the first 2 days, the diet consists of drinking aloe vera gel and taking garcinia and fibre supplements. This starts the cleansing process while ensuring you won’t feel hungry and you are getting enough nutrients. Drinking lots of water is also recommended to flush out toxins as well as helping to prevent constipation. The first 2 days might sound a little daunting with no real meals planned and they are the hardest part of the program, day 2 in particular for me but there is a list of free foods (see below) that you can eat at any time to help curb your cravings.
Days 3 To 9
The amount of aloe vera gel is reduced from day 3 and forever shakes are introduced. You have one protein shake for breakfast and another for lunch in addition to the other supplements to be taken throughout the day. The shakes are available in vanilla or chocolate flavor and are really quite delicious. A 600 calorie meal is recommended in the evening and the booklet has some recipe ideas you can use.
The guide also has some shake recipes if you have time or prefer to mix things up a little and has tips and advice on how to obtain the best results – as with any weight management program or diet plan, you need to prepare for success. You record everything, measurements before and after, your goals, what you eat and how you feel each day.
Clean 9 Free Foods – Wondering What You Can Eat On C9 ?
Forever have recognized that some people really need to eat something while following the plan and the need for something to snack on, so there is a list of free foods, low in calories to choose from. Foods include fruit and vegetables and are listed in the booklet as free and one and two serving foods, since foods with a higher amount of natural sugars are taken into account.
Sugar snap peas
Forever Living C9 Program Review – What About Exercise During Clean 9?
30 minutes of low to moderate exercise is recommended during the first 2 days of the program and is a great start to increasing fitness if you are not very active. From day 3, your calorie intake will increase so time to step it up a little. Walk faster or do some aerobic exercise to help burn those calories – aerobic exercise has shown to burn more calories than other forms of exercise.
Forever F.I.T. have many resources to help people with their weight management and one such resource is the home workout videos. This is a free resource and perfect for anyone who doesn’t like the gym or prefers to do their own thing. If you haven’t been exercising before, its a great way to start getting fitter also before joining a gym. Exercise routines are graded into beginner, intermediate and advanced workouts so it doesn’t matter what level of fitness you are at, you’ll find something to suit. The workouts are well explained and easy to follow and its surprising how quickly you can build up your strength right from the beginner level.
CLEAN 9 RESULTS AND TESTIMONIALS
This is a selection of Clean 9 before and after pictures I’ve found around the web, some amazing results.
Some of the testimonials from other customers who’ve tried Forever Living Clean 9, taken from facebook pages…
“Getting on well with C9 and have noticed some changes already – my energy level is higher than it has been, skin and hair feel less dry and having been on some medication for the past 12 mths, I feel as if the after effects of that are clearing. Overall, doing well, feeling great.”
“I decided to do the Clean 9 as I’ve found my energy had gotten very low. I’ve been feeling more tired than usual and can’t seem to get going in the morning with no enthusiasm for anything! I expected to feel a bit better after the 9 days but was not prepared for the burst of energy I’ve had since. I feel like I’m ready for anything and it has also encouraged me to continue to look after myself and my nutrition. I will definitely continue drinking the aloe vera gel and see how it goes. Can not recommend this program highly enough.”
“Officially finished the C9 detox today and I am simply astounded at the result. I feel cleaner, leaner and can’t believe how well I feel, and my energy levels are through the roof. The whole 9 days was a breeze without any discomfort at all”
“C9 FINISHED and feeling fantastic. gained my good habits back!!! Skin feels nourished too”
CLEAN 9 SIDE EFFECTS – Is Forever C9 Diet Safe?
Since clean 9 is a 9 day aloe vera detox or cleanse which is also low in calories, you will experience side effects, some great, but the real question is are there any bad side effects. As with any program when you cut down or cut out caffeine and sugar, there are effects, some of which can be unpleasant.
Forever Living have guidelines as to who the product is not suitable for to prevent any adverse effects which we;ll look at in a moment, but as each of us is different, our habits, food consumption and toxicity level is also different. Cleansing the body is about getting rid of the old, built up rubbish and how much rubbish there is to get rid of will impact your experience. Headaches, nausea, congestion, tiredness, frequent urination and irritability are just some of the side effects you could experience, but not everyone will notice anything unpleasant and withdrawal effects usually don’t last long.
Who Should Not Do The Clean 9
The forever living clean 9 cleanse is safe to follow as directed as Forever Living have a team of experts producing and testing their products, however there are some people who the program is not suitable for. Women who are pregnant or who are breast feeding should not do the C9, nor should anyone with diabetes, kidney disease, epilepsy, heart disease or dementia. it is also not suitable for children.

What’s Next? What To Do After Clean 9?
Clean 9 should be looked at as the foundation for a new, healthier regime and not as a quick fix solution to weight loss. While many people do experience fantastic results and lose a lot of weight, this really depends on how much you have to lose in the first place as well as other factors. The important thing is to think about it as the first step – any weight loss, particularly a lot, is a plus.
In saying that, some people do decide to use our C9 as exactly that – they want to look their best immediately – think about an important occassion coming up, a wedding, communion or a special event where you want to look your best but maybe you haven’t made the best or healthiest food choices in the lead up.
Others use the program for health reasons, to have more energy, to get back to good habits, maybe after using medication to cleanse the body or trying for a baby to balance out nutrition levels.
Once you’ve completed the program and depending on your reasons for doing it in the first place, you might decide to carry on to the next step of Forever’s Weight Management Products which is FIT 15. This is a 15 day program designed to provide you with the knowledge that you need to get inspired and help you make permanent changes toward a healthier lifestyle.
You could also decide just to continue with some of the products, eg drinking aloe vera gel or using the ultra lite shakes as a meal replacement a couple of times a week, depending on your goal. All the products in the Clean 9 detox are available to purchase separately and you can really tailor them to fit with what you want to achieve.
