REVIEW: Total Lean 7 Day Fat Loss Kit

This photo makes me understand the phrase “I feel like a fat pig”. This is EXACTLY how I felt after the Holidays. After eating a LOAD OF CRAP, I really needed a totally cleansing. I couldn’t WAIT to rid my body of all that garbage.  I wanted to totally purge all the bad and start all the good.

First of all, I have to say I am NOT a fan of diet pills or quick fixes. I do not promote shortcuts and gimmicks. However, I do believe everyone needs a jump-start occasionally. Sometimes we need it physically, and sometimes we need it mentally. This was one of those times for me. (It’s been several YEARS since I’ve done anything like this). So I decided to do a cleanse. Sure, a cleanse is just flushing out your gut, but when your gut feels SO full – it’s a great way to feel skinny even before you lose the first pound.

So, I started the Total Lean 7 Day Fat Loss system from GNC yesterday. Please hear me: One, if I don’t like this product, I’ll tell you. Second, this is a JUMP START, not a long-term diet program. Although the program does give you examples of what to eat, this really is about starting a new healthy lifestyle. It comes with a Diet Pak, the Pre-Diet Cleanse and 2 Total Lean Shakes per day.

The shakes are more for weight loss. The protein is not where I need the protein to be but it’s a good meal/snack replacement. I supplemented with an additional 40gm protein shake after my workout (had it instead of dinner). The shakes give you the nutrients you need with very little food in your gut. If you’ve been on an eating frenzy, the shakes will help get your stomach ready for smaller healthier portions.

Don’t expect it to completely satisfy you though at first. After your body has been used to huge portions and high fatty meals, your body will seem disappointed AT FIRST. As long as you keep the meals small consistently, you will adapt and be happy!

OK, this is the funnies thing EVER! I was SO dreading the cleanse. I was dreading how it would taste and dreading how it would make me feel. Since a cleanse literally is flushing your body, I was prepared to do some serious flushing of the toilet (YUCK!) so this was not the exciting part of this plan.

When I finally decided to open the bottle and taste the product, I was surprised how good it tasted. I mean – NO mediciny flavor or anything. I like to slam my drinks and since it said to drink it slowly, I decided to drink half (there’s not much to drink anyway) and drink the rest later.

Then I started to tell my husband, Steve, how I was really dreading taking the Cleanse. My husband said I should blog about it all – my fears, my feelings and even my churning bowels (ha!). Then I noticed the rest of my Cleanse drink was gone. I asked Steve if he saw it – and then it hit us both. STEVE DRANK IT!

He thought it was tea! Being the oblivious wife that I am, I had set the tea colored drink right next to the TEA! He slammed it and poored some more tea. ha! After we got off the floor rolling laughing he said “I guess you won’t be the only one blogging about how the Cleanse worked”. hahahahahahahaha

The diet pak is a blend of GNC’s Burn 60, Waterex and Green Tea Complex. The Burn 60 gives you energy, the Waterex helps balance your water (which I totally needed!) and the Green Tea Complex enhances your metabolism. First of all, I am very sensitive to energy products and diet pills. Normally they wig me out and make me feel really bad. After I took the Diet Pak, I totally forgot and still drank coffee, etc and felt great. I actually got a TON of work accomplished and stayed at the gym late – working and working out non-stop. All in all, I’m liking this!

I felt the cleanse hit me in the middle of the night, but not enough to wake me up (good thing I accidentally split it with Steve. ha! I feel energetic and weighed one pound lighter this morning, which was most likely from water loss and the cleanse mainly – but was encouraging nevertheless. I will continue to blog on my progress.

The key to diet supplements is to be realistic. This system is NOT going to get me fit. This system is NOT the answer – none of them are. Used appropriately, supplements like the 7 Day Fat Loss System may give you the physical and mental boost you need to start a new lifestyle, to workout, and to get results. Your fitness success will greatly depend on your caloric intake and how you train your body. 🙂

    I am on day 5 of this cleanse. I got sick day 2 of the cleanse from the wonderful cold that is going around. I didn’t give up though. I just had to switch up stuff so that I wasnt’ taking cold meds on an empty stomach. I am in love with this product. I am horrible at anything I have to do on my own because I have no will power. I have already lost 7lbs! My husband doesn’t like fish so we have chicken instead. I was going to get other weight loss systems but one cost almost $400 a month and one is $150 a month. Not only does this do the same thing but it cost a fraction of the price. Totally worth every penny.

  • vanessa

    I have the same kit, the diet cleanse was suprisingly tasteful. But I do have a question for the pill pack, which pill is which and how and what order do I take them in? Lol

  • xtreme fat loss diet reviews

    Its like you read my thoughts! You seem to know a lot
    about this, like you wrote the guide in it or something.
    I think that you just can do with some percent to drive the message home a bit, but instead of that, that is magnificent blog.

    An excellent read. I’ll definitely be back.

    Hi Bonnie,

    I apologize if you already have answered this, but, what did (do) you do after the 7 days were complete?

  • amber swinney

    I dont understand when Im suppose to be taking everything!! The instructions dont seem clear. I mean when do i take the pre cleanse i know everyday but when? am I mixing it with water or does it come pre mixed i can just pour and drink? Can i have a shake for breakfast then one for supper and at lunch have a salad? Im just so confused!! Help please!!

    • Bonnie Pfiester

      look for the instructions. It says exactly how to take everything. You are supposed to take the cleanse at night – and cut it with water..and drink it slowly. 🙂 Read the info included in the box. It will help lots!! 😉

  • souad

    • Bonnie Pfiester

      I am not familiar with Maybe it’s just a temporary site issue. 🙂 good luck!! ….and be sure to plan what’s next. Remember, the 7 day fat loss kit is just the 1st step 🙂

    I’m interested to hear what you think as the week goes on. I have used this product, I found it convenient. I use it as a tool to reset my eating after periods of poor eating like the holidays, etc. It is a balanced way to level set your metabolism from processed foods, sugars and caffeine. I noticed after the week, I had less cravings and was able to following my eating plan. What I liked about it was that it was basic and came in one box, protein shakes, fiber supplement, vitamin packs. If you choose not to use this particular package again, you could swap these items out with your favorite protein shakes, multivitamins and Metamucil or Fiber Choice.

  • KaayaFitnessKoach

    I agree with Caitlin. I like the fact that you have been realistic about weight loss and fitness. I too recommend a couple supplements that I myself use such as Shakeology, but I know that at the end of the day this is only a small part of the whole fitness game.

    I had been thinking about doing an all-natural juice cleanse after the holidays, but I’m not sure if I will or not. This product sounds great and I might just give it a go. Again, thanks for the suggestion and I hope the New Year is treating you well.

    I really like the NOTE you put at the end of the review because too many people probably would see how fit you are, and say oh, if I do this I’ll be like her. It’s good that you’re keepin’ it real! I’m not a fan of these kinds of things but enjoy reading reviews and seeing other peoples’ experiences with them because a lot of my guy friends like things from GNC and Vitamin World that are like the diet-pak you mentioned here.

    • Bonnie Pfiester

      Thanks for the feedback. If people had realistic goals, people would be so much more successful. Unfortunately many companies aren’t promoting realistic results. Hopefully I can help in that department 🙂
