Question

Answer

Will I lose weight on this programme? Whilst this isn’t a weight loss programme, findings from the pilot study show that 96% of our delegates lost weight and inches.
I'm vegitarian, can I do this programme? Two of the supplements are not suitable for vegetarians. The capsule of Psyllium & Apple Pectin is gelatin, however, these capsules can be opened out. The Celapro is a gelatin capsule. This can be substituted for our Plant Source Antioxidant, which is vegetarian. Please advise when ordering.
Can I eat meat on this programme? Yes if you look at the food list, meat is not excluded, we have limited this to lamb and venison, other great sources of protein include poultry and fish as well as legumes and nuts.
Can I train when on this programme? Of course, but we did not recommend long cardio sessions. Weight training would be our preferred choice. BCAA’s are suggested pre and during sessions to ensure that muscle mass is not effected.
How do I join the Facebook Group? Upon receiving payment, you will be sent instructions on how to join the private Facebook group. This is a closed group for use by group members only.
Where do I access the NutriClean documents? Everyone will be sent out a hard copy. All PDF’s will be available in the download section of Facebook. Everyone not on Facebook can request a PDF copy via email.
Do I need to buy a juicer? No a juicer is not essential. If you have a juicer great, if not you can visit a juice bar or use soups during your liquid only days. A blender usually does the job.
Are adverse side effects normal? We don’t expect you to experience any adverse side effects on this programme; previous delegates have experienced headaches as part of a caffeine withdrawal. Our advice is to use the clean out week to reduce and then stop caffeine.

Constipation was also experienced by a few delegates. We found that increasing water was beneficial.

What are my avenues for support during detox? The facebook group immediately, Libby will be available by email and telephone support will be available Monday to Friday 8:30am- 5:00pm.<
How do I handle a night out during the metabolic detox? The food list is vast enough to still be able to pick or adapt a menu. The liquid only days are more challenging, but if out in the day; you can usually find a juice bar in most towns. Being prepared is key.
Do I need to take 2 weeks off work? Absolutely not, this cleanse is designed to be part of your regular structure. A metabolic cleanse contains an optimum amount of key nutrients for energy production.
Do I need any special equipment to complete the programme? No equipment is essential, a hand blender to make soup is ideal.
Why do we do 3 liquid only days? The rationale behind the three day liquid only, is to take the energy away from digestion and focus on detoxification. The nutrients during these three days heavily support phase 1 and phase 2 detoxification.
What do I do if i'm constipated? Constipation may occur if not enough fluids are being taken on board, so reflect on your hydrating fluids. Also consider adding 2 dessert spoons of ground flax seeds to your day.
Why are certain foods on the list, while others aren't. For example why is lamb on the food list, and eggs are not? The food list is designed not just with foods to support liver detoxification, but also with low allergenic/ intolerant foods. So in the case of lamb & eggs, eggs are not included in the programme as they can be an allergenic food whilst lamb is a very low allergy potential food.
Do we take supplements with food? We recommend you take supplements with food due to the therapeutic dose, to avoid irritation to the gut.
What is the shopping list for? This is just a guide to support you. None of these are compulsory but you may find them beneficial when meal planning.
Do I have to follow the menu planner? No, this is just a guide to support you. You can change the meals around to suit your needs and taste as long as you are keeping to the foods on the food list.
Can I continue with my existing supplements during the detox? The programme is designed to support detoxification, bowel elimination, blood sugar balance and is packed full of anti-oxidants, however if you have any existing supplements you want to continue, this will not be a problem.
What if i'm already taking medication? It is fine to embark on most medications, and we do not encourage you to stop essential medication, if you have any specific queries please contact me.
How do I measure out the UltraClear Plus pH? As UltraClear Plus pH is a powder, it can compress. We therefore recommend you shake the pot prior to each use and take up a loose scoop of the powder. Do not press the powder down into the scoop or level it off to fit more in. Alternatively, you can weigh each serving (46 grams) out separately.
If caffine is not allowed, why is green tea included? We have decided to exclude beverages which are high in caffeine including coffee and black tea as these normally contain the highest amounts. These 2 weeks are also all about cleaning up the diet and bringing it back to clean, wholesome eating/drinking. Green tea has a lot of health benefits associated with it which will be discussed in the webinars.
Are gluten free oats and porridge oats allowed? No as there is a potential for cross allergy. See the Shopping List for suggestions of grain/pasta alternatives.
