I have been questioned…

so I’ve decided to take on a challenge…yes the Visalus challenge. However, I am not doing it as a transformation, or a weightloss. I am doing it to see what it is like. I am only doing it for 5 days. And I am only doing the shakes.

If anyone knows me, they know I really don’t like fake sugar.  I don’t like what it does to me, I don’t like how it tastes, and I don’t like what it does to your body.  BUT…many many people I know are on it and LOVE it.  and since MANY of my clients ask about it, I decided to grab a few samples and give it a try….

Day 1!

8:30am I mixed up the shake with 1/2 a banana and a squirt of nestle quik.  I know, kinda defeats the purpose, but I had to add some chocolate, and I didn’t want to add the chocolate flavor pack that has more sucralose in it.  I mixed it with 1/2 cup of 2% milk and 1/2 cup of water.

The first sip, i could taste the sucralose, but still decided to give it a go.  Within 10 minutes I had a headache.  I stopped at Tim’s to get the kids their bagel and juice and had some of their bagel to get rid of the headache….it worked.  I found I was getting munchy feeling still about 10:15, so I had some of my fresh pineapple salsa I made.  Then I got really really thirsty!  I was craving water the rest of the day.

So after day 1, all was ok.  I had no more side effects and decided to give it another shot!  On to day 2!
