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….
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!
