Don’t you just love that name? Skinny Gut Shakes? I love to think of my gut being skinny. It’s been so long since I’ve seen a skinny gut on myself, but many times after I read the name, I visualize myself with a skinny gut.
Are you wondering how it’s going for me on this awesome, Renew Life Skinny Gut Ultimate Shakes program? Well, it’s been fun, that’s for sure. It’s a journey I’m definitely not done with and one that I’m glad that I gave myself some time to get used to.
I started with the shakes, expecting to feel different right away. The truth is, I had to be drinking the shakes for several days before I noticed any changes in the way I felt. But, once I got in the habit of having a shake every day, my digestion was so much better and my cravings became less and less. I didn’t really notice the cravings change until after about a week on the program. Once that change hit, it was much easier for me to say no to junk foods. I had to be careful though. If I got off of the shakes for more than a day, I would gradually start craving junk food and adding them back into my diet.
Having a Renew Life Skinny Gut Chocolate Shake helped me feel like I was getting a dessert when I added a little more cocoa powder to it to make it extra chocolatey. Making a smoothie out of the Renew Life Skinny Gut Vanilla Shake, adding in apples and greens, helped me to get out of any ruts I felt like I was in, by not having the same thing day in and day out.
My weight has been decreasing by about a pound every week since I began using the shakes.* I had about 2 weeks where I got off track, while my daughter was having surgery and I succumbed to my bad habit of stress eating. During that time, I gained a few pounds back, but that was my own fault for not staying on program. I’ve also been exercising regularly and dropped several inches from the combination of diet and exercise.
Overall, I’ve noticed that I feel much better while I’m on the shake program. I didn’t realize just how bad my digestion was, until suddenly my system is working just like it’s supposed to be. I used to make runs to the bathroom after indulging in a meal that was less than optimal. Now, I feel good!
I’ve managed to lose 3″ off of my waist alone!* Here’s a picture to prove it!
As you can see, I still have a long ways to go, but I’m on the right track and love how just making some slight diet and exercise changes can get me this far. The key is consistency and not giving up! Of course, it doesn’t hurt to make sure to take before pictures and measurements, so that I can actually see the progress, too!
