Even though I’m back at the gym, I wanted to do a little something extra to help boost my weight loss. Earlier this year, Skinnygirl launched their Skinny For Summer Pack, which includes a Cleanse & Restore drink mix and Weight Management & Energy capsules, plus a cool little shaker bottle.
About the Cleanse & Restore drink mix:
Skinnygirl Daily Cleanse & Restore is a moderate daily cleanse designed to gradually rid your body of toxins & replace it with essential nutrients & greens. It floods your body with 15 nutrient-dense, high quality cleansing herbs, promotes a healthy immune system with 4 billion probiotic-rich cells, works to increase regularity with 3 grams of fiber, and improves intestinal balance with 5 digestive enzymes.
I’ll be honest – the daily cleanse drink tastes terrible. And it’s green, so it looks kinda gross. So instead of mixing mine with water, I mix mine with lemonade. Much tastier, even though it does add a little extra sugar from the lemonade. I drank mine in the morning to wash down the weight management capsules.
As far as cleansing goes, this one is really gentle. I felt a difference when I was taking it and when I wasn’t, mostly in the regularity of my, um, bathroom trips. I’m not normally a “daily” person, but after a few days using the Skinnygirl cleanse and restore, I realized I was going on a daily basis.
About the Weight Management & Energy capsules:
Skinnygirl Daily Weight Management & Energy combines a synergistic blend of CLA (Conjugated Linoleic Acid), a naturally occurring fatty acid found in meat and dairy products, and flaxseed oil, a healthy fat high in omega-3s. Studies suggest these healthy fats increase the efficiency in which our body burns fat. Unfortunately, with today’s processed meats and dairy, the amount of CLA and omega-3s in our diets is declining. The added B12, known for increasing energy levels, and the grapefruit oil which stimulates detoxification, offer a unique solution to weight management along with regular exercise and a healthy, balanced diet.
The Weight Management & Energy capsules have been known to replace my morning coffee lately. They don’t give me the jolt that caffeine does, but they do help keep me going through morning meetings at the office. I really like that they come in gel capsules, which you don’t really taste. I’ve tried other brands that come in regular pill form, but hated those because they smelled bad and tasted terrible. With the Skinnygirl ones, there’s no bad taste and no bad odor.
The Skinnygirl Skinny For Summer pack is valued at $92, but is currently on sale for $59.99. That’s over a 30% discount.
