Forever’s C9 Cleanse: Your Guide To A Healthier You

The C9 cleanse from Forever Living has truly been one of the best products I’ve ever invested in, and I’m not just saying that because I’m a Forever Business Owner. 

It used to be so easy for me to get caught in the cycle of wanting to always do all the fad diets — I would find myself falling into this trap often.

This is where the C9 differs so much.

It’s less about the weight-management (although, that’s a bonus) and it’s more about giving your body a break and a reset. 

Being and feeling healthy, as well as making sure your body is nourished with all the good stuff is the most important thing above all else — and this is exactly what C9 does for you. 

At the end of the day, my health matters the most because without it I won’t have much of a life and this is why I want to share this amazing product with you. 

In this article, I will unpack exactly what the C9 weight management programme is, what’s included in the box, how the programme works, the benefits you can experience, common FAQs and C9 friendly recipes.

What Is The Forever Living C9 Cleanse?

Forever Living’s mission is to deliver top quality products and services, all of which are targeted towards improving the mental and physical well-being of their customers. 

Their C9 weight management programme is a clear directive of their mission.

It will bring your mind and body back into alignment, giving you that much-needed health reset we often forget to take. 

The C9 programme is a nine-day nutritional cleanse which is designed to help you meet your weight-management, exercise and lifestyle goals by encouraging you to follow a calorie-controlled cleanse and exercise regime.

It focuses on nutritious shakes, natural supplements and amazing easy to cook recipe suggestions.

When you sign up for the C9 programme, you will be given a step by step guide to help you in building and improving your health, physique and strength. 

You will also be supplied with a range of Forever Living health products, an exercise guide and a food journal. 

I can personally say after doing the C9 cleanse multiple times that this is the most enjoyable health and fitness experience I’ve had to date. 

I found myself looking forward to each day as opposed to wishing it was over before it had even begun.

How Does The C9 Plan Work?

The C9 programme aims to help shape your body’s abilities and give it that springboard health kick it needs to keep on going long past the cleanse’s completion. 

Often the most difficult part about consistent fitness and healthy eating is simply the initial stages when your body is fighting the change in routine and overcoming this. 

The C9 works to combat this, establishing you on the right path towards a healthy mind and body and kickstarting your entire system into action. 

Why Choose C9?

There are so many fitness fads and weight-management programmes floating around, it can be overwhelming to know which one to choose. 

I love this programme specifically because of the amazing aloe vera products it includes and I am a big believer in the power of this magical plant.

The C9 offers an incredibly balanced and healthy plan that has made me feel truly phenomenal each time I complete it. 

And I like that it’s only 9 days!

This makes it much easier mentally to prepare for than say doing a cleanse for a month or three. 

The C9 cleanse also helps you create solid building blocks so you can progress onto Forever’s other fitness programme —the F15 — if you so desire. 

It comes with a booklet with instructions set out for each of the nine days, making it very easy to follow and includes plenty of exercises to suit your needs.

Some Advice for Best Results During The C9 Cleanse

  • Take your measurements: Take a front and side photo of yourself before starting the cleanse and record your body measurement and weight in the booklet. At the end of the cleanse take the same photos again in the same thing you were wearing at the beginning and in the same lighting. By doing this you will be able to compare and see your results. 
  • Choose three realistic goals you are committed to achieving during the 9 day cleanse.
  • Follow the instructions clearly outlined in the booklet provided: Note your daily exercises, menus and your energy of the day. This will help you to be mindful of your results and your progress at the end of the cleanse. 
  • Daily exercise is a must: for the first three days, start with more gentle exercise, like walking or gentle yoga.
  • Drink plenty of water: the recommendation on how much water to drink will be mentioned in the booklet.
  • Don’t weigh yourself every day: I suggest doing it on day 1 and day 9, Let your body do its thing without you obsessing over whether you’re losing weight or not. For me the aim of C9 is to give my body a break so I can reset and boost it with all the good nutrients — the weight-management is just an amazing byproduct of it. 
  • Take it easy on the salt intake: use spices and herbs instead of salt as it can cause water retention.

Post C9 Cleanse — What Happens Next?

As I mentioned earlier the C9 cleanse is a great way to give yourself that health kick and get you feeling fit and healthy. 

After completing it I find it much easier to keep eating well and exercising regularly, but if you want to take it up a notch you could do the Forever FIT 15

This is a 15-30 day programme that is a perfect optional follow-on from C9 and is tailor-made to suit your needs, whether you see yourself as a beginner, intermediate or advanced participant.

C9 Cleanse FAQs

Is the Forever Living C9 programme safe?

Yes. The Forever Living C9 weight management programme is meant to run for nine days only. You should consult your doctor if you have any medical conditions before you begin the programme. Anyone with the following conditions: kidney disease, epilepsy, diabetes, dementia or heart disease should not embark on this weight-management programme. Children and anyone with a BMI below 25, as well as pregnant and breastfeeding mothers, are not eligible for this programme. Consult your doctor before starting this programme if your BMI exceeds 30. Please note that Forever Fiber can cause gastrointestinal changes because of an abrupt increase in fibre while Forever Therm has some caffeine in it. These symptoms can be remedied by drinking more water.

How much weight can I expect to lose on the C9 programme?

During the Forever Living C9 weight-management programme, the amount of weight you will lose hinges on your baseline factors, and it includes your weight and your lifestyle as at the time you began the programme.

Are food supplements diet foods?

No. In the Forever Living C9 weight-management programme, the food supplements do not independently complement weight-management. The food supplements are specially prepared to offer you increased benefits while you attain your lifestyle and diet ambitions.

Forever Lite Ultra is rich in protein, vitamins, and minerals. On the other hand, Forever Fiber has low saturated fat content, but is rich in fibre. Chromium is one of the ingredients in Forever Garcinia Plus, and it gives us a healthy macronutrient metabolism and also maintains our blood glucose levels.

To help reduce tiredness and fatigue, Forever Therm has also been specially prepared to offer vitamin and mineral boost, such as vitamin B2, B6, and B12.

Will I feel hungry during the programme?

You may feel hunger pangs, especially in the first two days after starting the programme. Please refer to the free foods section of the C9 booklet for more information.

The first two days of the programme seem difficult! Do I have to follow them exactly as outlined?

If you miss the first two days of the Forever Living C9 weight-management programme, it can affect your overall result. Please remember to consult the free foods on page 15. During the reset phase, symptoms such as low energy, gastrointestinal changes, and headaches are normal.

Why do I need protein?

The building block of every cell in your body is protein. Thus, to build and maintain muscles and tissues in your body, your body requires amino acids which can only be extracted from protein.

Non-inclusion of an adequate amount of protein in your calorie restriction can lead to a loss of muscle mass ahead of when you begin to shed the fat. Rich in protein, Forever Lite Ultra is specially made for upwardly mobile folks.

Why should I drink so much water per day (at least, 8 glasses)?

Water takes up about 72% of our body mass, and we have the duty of replenishing its supply. Water plays a role in the maintenance of the body’s internal temperature. Water also aids the maintenance of regular physical and cognitive operations of our bodies.

As long as I monitor my calorie intake, can I eat whatever foods i want?

If you want your body to change, then one of the critical things you must do is to change the way you see food. For optimum results, we advise that you adhere strictly to the programme as indicated in the C9 booklet. You will not have the perfect balance of nutrients because foods which are low in calories may not provide you with that.

Is C9 ok for vegetarians and vegans?

It is determined by how uncompromising you are as a vegetarian or vegan. In the Clean 9 programme, Garcinia Plus remains the most important non-vegetarian ingredient, and it comes in the form of a gel capsule.  Nevertheless, except you are opposed to buying the product because of its gelatin content, you can easily cut open the shell of Garcinia Plus and take out its contents.

Can I take a look at the C9 booklet before purchasing the programme?

Absolutely. You can download it here.

C9 Cleanse Reviews

Kylie Oliver

The main reason I started C9 was to lose a few pounds after having my third child. Not only did I amaze myself at how slim I felt in the 9 days, but I also felt so much more energised and healthier plus my skin had such a glow to it and my spots had gone. It’s a perfect way to cleanse your body and help you break the bad habits and to help you on your way to leading a healthier lifestyle.

Istvan Varga

Those 9 days completely turned my world around. In just 9 days I lost the weight I had put on in lockdown — which was an incredible thing for me! I had more energy and never felt so good. That gave me the right push forward and I picked up healthy habits and started exercising.

With the help of the F.I.T. programmes, I went on to hit my target weight. I highly recommend the program for those who struggle with their weight. Believe me when I say: following the program keeps your mind on your goal that you aim to reach. The 9 day is just the start. I never saw how far I could go.

Jeannie smith

The C9 programme is amazing! It’s only 9 days and shakes and aloe gel taste great. You’re allowed to eat lots of healthy foods during the program, so no need to starve yourself. After many years I said “Goodbye” to crisps and don’t even miss them! Can’t recommend C9 enough!

Beverley Charles

First C9 programme I started was in May.

I felt overweight, sluggish and tired, had low energy, low mood and had overeaten lots of bread and cakes and hadn’t done half as much moving due to lockdown.

When I started the programme I was determined to give it all the commitment. Days 1 and 2 were easier than I’d heard they would be and I’d made a ‘free foods’ soup that helped with staving off any wobbles.

I drank lots of water which really showed me how dehydrated I am usually. By day 4 my energy was up & my clothes were already feeling looser.

My skin, hair and nails all seemed to glow and I felt C9 helped me to look at food portion size and enjoy meal planning again.

I got compliments as my cheekbones had returned in photos and people started telling me how well I was looking. I was sleeping better and just felt really well.

Fast forward and I then went into the F15 beginner programme to help me change some habits around eating and building on my exercise.

I still have a long way to go until I reach my goals, but the products have really helped me focus on myself and self-care, and have been easy programmes to follow.
