The Greek Philosopher and father of modern medicine, Hippocrates believed that the human body has amazing ability to heal itself. He believed in nourishing the body with healthy food as a form of medicine. I decided to give it a whirl.
I was coming closer to 40 everyday and having trouble with high blood pressure and low blood sugars. I was also about 20 pounds over weight. I needed a change. I have tried just about every diet plan out there from Atkins to weight watchers without a whole lot of luck. My body just seemed stuck at 150 pounds no matter if I ate 1000 calories a day or 3000 calories a day. I was tired of starving myself, counting calories and living off shakes and meal replacements.
On May 1. I started a new approach to dieting. Eating as much as I wanted. As long as it was real food. No processed foods. No prepackaged or canned food. Lots of whole grains, lean protein, fresh vegetables. I didn’t count calories. I just made better choices. After the first two weeks I didn’t. Even want sugar anymore. My appetite naturally went down and I was eating less without feeling hungry. I had more energy. I actually started to like working out and even started running a few days a week. In 6 weeks I lost 8 pounds. I felt amazing. My skin was cleared, my mood was improved and I was sleeping better.
So far Hippocrates was right. But two things happened. One I hit the wall. I STOPPED loosing weight and even gained a few back. I was only eating 1200 calories a day and still running. But going in the wrong direction.I also went to the doctors for a check up and despite my efforts there was no change in my high blood pressure or blood sugar fluctuations. I was frustrated and ready to give up. Something was definitely off with my whole system. But then a friend posted an interesting article about the link between gut health and lower blood pressure and improved blood sugar levels. I began researching this and decided that maybe I needed to needed to work on improving my gut to improve my health and weight. A friend told me about her success with a supplement called plexus. It improves gut health and overall wellness.
I decided to give this little pink drink called “plexus slim” a try. Why plexus over other supplements? There were a couple of things that I liked about plexus
1.Its made with all natural ingredients. No artificial sweeteners. Artificial sweeteners give me aweful headaches.
2. It’s proven to help improve blood sugar and blood pressure which I needed
3. It has no artificial stimulants to affect my already high blood pressure or to make me gittery.
4. It is not a weight loss supplement it is designed to help improve your over all health which also results in weight loss.
5. It has a 60 money back guarantee. So what do I have to loose!?
The only thing that I didn’t like about plexus initially was the price. It seemed pricey and I am a very frugal person. But compared to some other weight loss companies like AdvoCare , weight watchers and Ideal Protein the price was lower and it had the 60 day money back guarantee. So I decided to make the investment in my health and give the pink drink a try.
I found that if I signed up to be an ambassador for $34.95 per year. I could get a welcome pack at a significant discount. So I paid much less than retail for the triplex pack. It includes a probiotic, a cleanse and the infamous pink drink.
So what the heck are these products suppose to do. Here is the run down:
1.Plexus Slim (The Pink Drink)
3. Bio cleanse
I am going to continue with my Real Food eating plan and my running and add in these supplements. Hopefully it will help me get over this rut I am in and see an improvement in my health as well as start loosing weight again.
I will be writing about my experience with Plexus. If you are interested in seeing how it works check back in soon. I am currently awaiting my supplements arrival by mail. I promise to provide a truthful unbiased review of my experiences with the products. If they don’t work for me. I will let you know. I am about saving money not talking you into buying junk that doesn’t work. So if you are interested follow along on my new plexus adventure and let’s see what happens.
