1. Will it be uncomfortable?
There are bound to be differing opinions about the changes in diet, but this detox is designed to be gentle and easy to follow. Remember, it is not a fast, nor is it a colon cleanse, both of which are very harsh on your system. You will be eating plenty of food and you will be preparing delicious shakes using the provided guide and recipes. Within the first few days, you may experience slight withdrawal symptoms from caffeine and high sugar/high carb foods if your eating routine contained a large amount of those ingredients. Flaca Detox™ is a comprehensive formula which is meant to assist you through the challenging days, though. In the Members-Only site, tools and tips provided to you will allow a smoother transition into the program. For the majority of clients, the most challenging days are the initial first four days. After that, most clients experience a renewed sense of wellness along with an energy boost. Be patient, the symptoms will pass, and it will all be worth it!
2. Will I be in the bathroom all day?
It is very important to consume extra water while on this program to help flush out toxins. We recommend that you drink at least ½ of your body’s weight in ounces of water and more if you can. As an example, if you weigh 130 lbs. you will need to drink no less than 65 oz. of water which would be a little more than 8 glasses of water (8 oz. per glass). Therefore, most people urinate more often than usual on this program.
3. Will I lose weight?
Many people do lose weight during the course of the Flaca Detox™ program. Some reasons for weight loss include: lower than usual caloric intake due to replacing meals with shakes, removing sugar from the diet, releasing toxins from fat stores, and decreasing consumption of allergenic foods such as wheat and dairy which promote inflammation and water retention.
4. Will I get headaches?
Some people experience headaches during the first few days of their detox due to sugar and caffeine withdrawal. You may want to gradually decrease the intake of these substances one week prior to detoxification to minimize discomfort. The Flaca Detox™ shake is designed to assist your body in this process as quickly and efficiently as possible.
5. Can I exercise?
You may exercise normally (monitor yourself, of course). The first few days you may feel fatigued. On these days, you may want to limit yourself to gentle movement such as walking, stretching, yoga, etc. Depending on your level of toxicity, you may find yourself needing to sleep more in the early days. After 3-4 days, you will feel better, probably better than in a long time, and you may get back to your routines. To get better results, it is recommended to have some type of daily movement even in the rough days as this facilitates the removal of toxins. If you are not feeling well, try a light walk. Once you get your energy back, increase intensity. You can do as little as 15-20 minutes of intervals on those days that you are feeling well and still get a good workout.
6. Should I continue with my regular vitamins?
Flaca Detox™ contains a variety of vitamins/minerals and other nutrients to help meet your daily requirements. You may suspend other natural supplements during the detox under the guidance of your health care practitioner, but continue to take any medically prescribed pharmaceuticals. Ask your health care practitioner if you have any specific questions.
7. Should I choose organic produce?
To obtain the best results in this program, organic vegetables and fruits are preferred, but not mandatory. The USDA Environmental Working Group (EWG) produces an annual report that singles out produce with the highest pesticide loads. It is currently known as the Dirty Dozen. The recommendation is that you do make an effort to search for the organic versions of these Dirty Dozen. This list can change year to year, although many products are constantly on the list.

8. The Dirty 12
