How I Went from >75 to 72 kg in 4 days! Plus Before & After Pictures

   

Everybody should have somewhat of a weight limit. Mine’s 75kg. The recent weeks have been worse with friends saying, “You look kind of swollen”, “Have you stopped exercising?” and “Your face very round ah!” All right, I get the hint and did feel horrible about myself.

It is true that I have exercised a lot less due to an injury incurred earlier this year. I never really took slimming pills and stuff, but when I read a write-up in 8 days on The Slimming Quencher by Olive & Green, a “delicious meal-replacement health drink that brings your body back into balance”, it called out to me to give it a try.

Made from organic cactus honey extract, organic citrus extract, herbs and spices, this meal-replacement drink is supposed to detox and “wake up” the metabolism from its slumber. Sounds simple right?

Here’s the catch – You cannot eat anything for 4 days! It may be easy for you, but never easy for a food blogger who eat good meals 4 times a day.

I need to say that Olive & Green did not endorse me to write this. I do not get paid for this. I will be happy if they would (Haha. Any slimming company can write to me too, yah?) So I will say the truth.

Not eating anything is NOT easy at all. And the drink is Not “delicious” – quite horrible tasting in fact, somewhat a cross between diluted tom yum and chilli water. Day 1 was terrible, though by Day 3 I got very used to the taste. It became bearable. I reminded myself it was honey.

Going to dinner at Cocotte and drinking Still water (true story), watching Prometheus with your tummy calling out to you (also true story), and doing 3 Zumba classes (another crazy true story) in between was mental and physical torture. You need A LOT of determination.

And so after 4 days, here are the results! But prior to that, the BEFORE pictures.

Am slightly embarrassed myself, my tummy seems to be a permanently bloated stage and I had to keep wearing black tees to cover up. Call myself a fitness instructor! Oh well, I did stop exercising for a while. Here’s the AFTER pictures. (Taken by iPhone, NO photoshop)

Amazing right? From 75.8kg to 71.7kg, in 4 days! Though my weight fluctuates between 72 and 73kg these few days after the programme.

My friends say that my face do not look so bloated, as though I got rid of my water retention. Other than looking sharper, most commented that my face looks clearer, glower, with lighter eye bags too. I do notice during Day 3, my faces were very pinkish.

I need to emphasize I do not advocate fast slimming. There is a part of me that feels it is still somewhat unhealthy, and eating healthily and exercising should still be the way to go. But I do value that Slimming Quencher helps me in detoxing. Some would say I would be just losing fluids. We shall see.

Watch out for this space one month later.

      No actually. Actually I just took it as a form of detox, without knowing what to expect!

          Oh ok, thanks! I just bought it. Any advice on how to lay off food for four whole days? Quite scared to start on it… 😛

            Just keep yourself really busy and drink loads of water. Stay off temptation! :)

          Eh, I am at Day 2 now and I only lost 1.2kg since Day 0! Followed all the instructions carefully… How come it worked so well for you?

          Quite disappointed now and starving like crazy. ):

    Hi, yes you can continue to eat normally after the 4th day and you need not have to drink it. However, it is recommended to go on this just once a month to clear your body and give your system a break after bouts of overeating.

    I think it took its concept from the “Master Cleanse” program.. but it detoxifying is always good! might try this one.. :)

    Hi daniel… Did you gain back the weight after the cleanse or it is constant weight loss?

  10. July 10, 2012 at 12:40 pm #

    Wow that sounds amazing! I think I’ll give it a shot too… but oh dear it’s gonna be sooo hard coz I super love food :(

    i finished my 4days finally on Sunday .. i last drank the drink at 7pm (Saturday) and throughout did not drink anything as i attended WU BAI concert n the security doesnt allow any drinks to be brought in. when the concert end abt 1130pm i was so hungry and endured till the clock strikes 12. 1st thing i did when i woke up in the morning is to take my weight and it’s fixed at 75 and till today still 75kg..

    during the 4 days of torture, it seems like my brain goes crazy abt food.. but surprisingly my appetite drop.. if i eat abit more, i will feel disguisted and eat lesser and interested in plain food.

    btw, did your weight bounce back??

    Hey Daniel! What you’ve written is very true – the drink tastes horrible indeed! It’s Day One for me now. I hope it does somehow taste better by Day Three. It tastes like vomit to me. (@_@) I’m gonna blog about the whole process too – I think you didn’t mention about the very frequent visits to the loo – does this inconvenient situation get better? I’m thinking of going to JB tomorrow. Can imagine being stuck in a traffic jam and needing the washroom! LOL!

      I actually went through it twice. A trip to JB with all the delicious food temptions and not being to eat anything is not advisable!
