Comments about GNC GNC Preventive Nutrition® Complete Body Cleansing Program:

i wanted to cleanse myself, and also help w/ being able to be more regular, along w/ starting off my diet. i followed the food plan pretty much by eating tons of fresh fruits and veggies all day, and brown rice and chicken, rice cakes, natural peanut butter ect. i did not eat organic, but i did eat fresh. drank tons of water, very little; on the natural side juice. all my food was completely plain. stopped drinking coffee. first 2 days headache, due to no coffee. slight cramping, 2-3 bowl movements a day. by the 4th day i noticed huge improvement in energy. and also because of all the fiber i was eating, i actually stayed full all day, and wasnt feeling as hungry as i thought i would. on the last day i felt great and had lost 8lbs. i started out at 134lbs now that im off of it, im not as regular as i want to be, so im going to try Colon Care. after having a baby my bowl movements are not up to par like they should be. so lets hope now that i did the cleanse, the colon care will keep me on track. i will be doing this cleanse every 3-4 months since it is so important for your body to rid all of the toxins we injest, eat, beath, drink ect. hope this helps. you do what it says and it will work, you put in 50 percent, and you wont see true results.

Comments about GNC GNC Preventive Nutrition® Complete Body Cleansing Program:

I am on day 4 and I am a little skeptical of this product - I am a relatively health conscious person so the eating plan isn't the worst (aside from not being able to have Starbucks and bacon). The pills taste pretty gross, but as do most vitamins in my opinion. But - I have been having some of the worst cramping, chills, spontaneous sweating, and dizziness ever. I don't find washroom breaks to be excessive which is good. Overall, feeling pretty sluggish despite sleeping very soundly (probably missing my Starbucks fix). My skin looks great and I have lost about 3 pounds. My boyfriend is doing the cleanse too and he feels great with minimal syptoms. I guess the product effects each person differently and it is important to be aware of what you are getting yourself into. You cannot do a cleanse and expect to feel totally normal - so I'm hanging in there.

Comments about GNC GNC Preventive Nutrition® Complete Body Cleansing Program:

I tried this product to jump start a weight loss program. I had been taking supplements for weight loss and it was recomended to me to do the cleanse periotically when on other supplements for them to work better. So after taking my weight loss pills for a week or 2 I decided to do the cleanse and the pills did seem to take better (where I was already taking 2 a day before the cleanse I was taking 1 after and was just as effective) The product its self was fine to use. I could tell the first 4 days like it was doing what it said it would, but the last few days were like nothing. A friend of mine also did this at the same time and had some cramping the last 3 days. I had very minimal cramps near the end. Nothing too bad, and I would use it again. I did not take supplements during this week and lost 2-3lbs.

Comments about GNC GNC Preventive Nutrition® Complete Body Cleansing Program:

I have tried other cleanses before and this one by far had the least amount of side effects and was most effective. I was so worried because I bought it by recommendation from the sales associate and then read the reviews on this page. I did not have the same experiences as others.

East to take, simple instructions, only 7 days!, fiber breakfast mix does not have a poor taste.

Results started that evening. Minor cramping (only lasting a couple seconds) before a bowel movement. (Nothing compared to other cleanses...ugh)

I'm glad day 3 landed on a weekend for me, because I would have been visiting the faculty restroom a lot. All other days were manageable, only 2-3 bathroom visits a day.

I followed the nutritional advice pretty closely, I wish it would have been more expansive. I've discovered I like soy milk!

By day 5 I was back to my "normal" self with no cramping and. I would not be someone who would use this long-term, but I feel it got the job done.

I feel cleansed and never felt "yucky".

No cleanse is side-effect free, and anyone who expects that is crazy. I will return to this product when I feel I'm ready for a cleanse again.

Comments about GNC GNC Preventive Nutrition® Complete Body Cleansing Program:

ok, so I wanted to do a cleanser because I have been watching what I eat and I am active as well. Yet, before I used this product I was bloated and had irregular bowel movements. This product did wonders for me I lost that extra weight I had and helped me ease my bowel movements. It was a little uncomfortable cause it did give me some stomach cramps, but beauty is pain. It's been a month and i have kept those pounds off. I want to do this again just to help me boost and help me achieve my weight goal which is only 5 more pounds. I exercise and limit my food options. I don't eat any dairy, only soymilk, and limit my carbs its just those little few pounds are the peskier to lose. My boyfriend is now going to take this cleanser and it's a great way to start off a healthier path. In the end, everyone's body is different and it will react differently, for me it worked great, hopefully it works well on my boyfriend too.

Comments about GNC GNC Preventive Nutrition® Complete Body Cleansing Program:

I am on day 3 1/2 and I can't find anything negative about it. I have IBS so was hesitant to take anything like this but I feel much more energetic, lost about 4 lbs, the pills are not that bad especially if you take vitamins...no worse than that. I mix up the fiber blend with fruit and soy milk in the blender...taste great. I would use this again.

Comments about GNC GNC Preventive Nutrition® Complete Body Cleansing Program:

I bought this product in hopes to cleanse toxins from my system hoping to feel better than before.
I followed the meal plan for the first day. Taking the vitamin packet along with the recommended food and beverage for day one.
Two short hours after taking the vitamin pack, I began to get severe stomach pains. Unbearable! I got up thinking o this must just be gas. I was wrong, I started seeing spots and fell to the ground. Being an athlete, I knew how to prevent myself from passing out so I tucked my head between my knees and took long deep breaths. I finally started to feel ok enough to stand. When I stood up i had the urgency to go NO. 2. I went and got finished. Then I threw up twice following my bowel movement. I felt so yucky, I went straight to bed and slept for 3 hours! I seriously doubt I will continue to use this system!!

Comments about GNC GNC Preventive Nutrition® Complete Body Cleansing Program:

The first day was fine, but by the second day I was so nauseous I was throwing up all day and could not eat. I stopped taking it and promptly returned the product to GNC. At least they have a good return policy, I did get my money back. By day three, I stopped throwing up and now have EXTREME diarrhea. I hope it stops soon as this product has messed up my stomach bad! Maybe it's the toxins leaving my system, but if this is how this product works; I'd rather be toxic!

Comments about GNC GNC Preventive Nutrition® Complete Body Cleansing Program:

After 2 days I woke up and by blood pressure was high 144 96, as the morning went on I vomited violently and was shaking and dizzy. My blood pressure continued to rise and it got to 180 144. I went to the Emergency room and took the box of stuff along since I was pretty sure it had something to do with that. They took an EKG, sono gram and and X-ray of my heart. Everything looked perfect. 5 doctors and 2 nurses stood there and for sure diagnosed that it was that junk. I have never been so sick. They gave me something for the nausea and continued to moniter me. My blood pressure came back to normal the next day and I returned the product. This Is Extremely Dangerous!! Stay away!! This stuff will cost me a fortune in medical bills!!!!!! Cleaned out my bank accout.

Comments about GNC GNC Preventive Nutrition® Complete Body Cleansing Program:

So, to start off I should mention that I try to work out about 3-4 days a week (usually 3) and I am conscious of what I eat. I am not an unhealthy person but decided to do this cleanse after being on an antidepressant for a year and gaining 20 pounds. I was hoping to cleanse my system of that awful drug and maybe lose some pounds, that would be a plus. Needless to say, the supplements are very simple to take. I tried to adhere to the "Foods to Avoid" and "Foods to Eat" list as best I could.
The first day I felt nothing, the second day it hit me. I was in the bathroom multiple times a day, which was fine. But once it was time for sleep an agonizing stomach ache came on in the middle of the night. The one that doubles you over and gives you goosebumps. This happened every night. So therefore, I quit the cleanse after day 4. The sleepless nights weren't worth it, I was already fairly healthy to begin with.

I did feel it had some cleansing effects because I did use the bathroom multiple times a day for the 4 days I participated. I also managed to lose a mere 2 pounds. I am a 21 year old 5'6, 130 pound female and after the (partial) cleanse I am now roughly 128.

Comments about GNC GNC Preventive Nutrition® Complete Body Cleansing Program:

The rep at GNC recommended this program to me and thought I'd give it a try. I had a daily BM with no issues though softer than normal (which you'd expect) but had one side effect of gas. I felt as though I was constantly having to pass gas but I was able to keep it hidden for the week. I will admit I gained about 5lbs while doing this but after a few days off the cleanse the weight came off and lost 9lbs. I didn't do this to lose weight but I do feel it worked. Since I ended the cleanse my energy has been up, skin looks better, and I feel better over all. If you can just push through the 7 days it'll be worth it in the end.

Bottom Line:
Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Comments about GNC GNC Preventive Nutrition® Complete Body Cleansing Program:

I read the comments before on the cons and I don't think that they cause any of that unless you had underlying issues to begin with or you thought eating normal meals outside the plan would be ok and or you had an underlying condition not checked by the doctor. Any product you use must be used by the directions not just taking the pills and formula will get you the results but the meal plan inside is fit for this cleanse to work at its efficiency. If you have many health problems before taking it can cause those symptoms to get worse. This product was effective and I utilized the diet plan implemented in the box and bought organic foods as it implies. It can cost you in groceries but the instructions are explicit and work if followed to the "T" I felt the results, the first couple of days I was tired but that is what is expected in a cleanse and then your energy picks up after that. I highly recommend this as a start to a healthly diet starter and teaches good healthy habits after the cleanse that I adopted for continued diet plan.

Comments about GNC GNC Preventive Nutrition® Complete Body Cleansing Program:

I've wanted to always try a cleanse and figured I'd give it a try especially since lately I have strayed from my normal eating habits and because I am also not regular when it comes to going to the bathroom and just wanted to clean everything out. Went to GNC today and somehow let the associate talk me into buying this product. I asked another customer there who said he tried it and like it so I went along. I love shopping at GNC but will never let an associate talk me into getting anything ever again! I felt nausea while eating dinner and had to stop and have way more gas than normal. I'm nervous now about the side effects while I am at work. I'm thinking of stopping but don't want to waste my money. I may just give it a try for another day or two and see what happens.

Comments about GNC GNC Preventive Nutrition® Complete Body Cleansing Program:

I'm on day 2 of this product and it's not too bad for me. I like the fact that it's simple to take-just a pack of pills in the AM and a pack in the PM and that's it. The Probiotic/Fiber mixture is a little weird but I've been mixing it with orange juice and it really has no taste in my opinion. I haven't been following the diet but have been following the "eat this/limit this" food list. Yes I have had some gas and bloating but nothing too terrible. I have been more tired than normal but that's probably because I haven't been able to consume any caffeine. I have been drinking more water than normal and I feel that really helps with the discomfort others may have been feeling. I will repost towards the end and update my status on this product.

Comments about GNC GNC Preventive Nutrition® Complete Body Cleansing Program:

Well, I am on day 5 of taking these pills and I have not noticed an increase in bowel movements...in fact I have been constipated and incredibly gassy. I have also been so bloated that my pants are tighter. I have, however, had to urinate like crazy. I will say that it has curbed my hunger which is one of the only "pros" that I could come up with. I am going to ride it out until day 7 because it doesn't seem to be causing me any harm that could be considered chronic but I'm not going to get my hopes up.

Comments about GNC GNC Preventive Nutrition® Complete Body Cleansing Program:

I started this cleanse because the sales associate told me he had used it himself and it worked and had no side effects. By day 2 I was constipated and had terrible gas. I was extremely bloated and uncomfortable. Since I spent a bit on the product I decided to continue through the seven days and by day 4 I was tired and nauseous. Day 7 was even worse. The stomach cramps were terrible and I guess I finally flushed out because I finally blew a gasket and then ended up hanging out in the bathroom for about 2 hours. It was terrible. I guess I will stick to beans and brocolli.

Bottom Line:
Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Comments about GNC GNC Preventive Nutrition® Complete Body Cleansing Program:

I've been trying to diet and lose 30 pounds, so it was suggested I do a cleanse beforehand. I have a pretty busy day, and not much time for a stop at the bathroom, so a liquid cleanse was not even an option! Everyone's body is different, and some people will like this, others will hate it. The pills have a funny taste, but it reminded me of a chrysanthemum tea blend. They don't taste awesome, but they aren't impossible to take either. In fact, they are no bigger than a multi-vitamin. The fiber/prebiotic powder isn't delicious, and I suggest mixing with with water and fresh orange juice. Otherwise, it's not too horrible with plain water.

I didn't care for the diet plan, so I just tried to eat healthy and watch how much I eat. In the middle of the whole thing I only lost two pounds and gained it back before the cleanse was over, mostly my own fault. But during the whole seven days, my skin looked so much better, I felt great (minus the occasional bloating which happened about two hrs after taking the pills. am and pm). I would certainly recommend this to someone who has never tried a cleanse before, it wasn't a horror story for me and I do feel better from having done it. You may not have the same results but I recommend getting some exercise for at least 30 minutes a day and eating right during this, and drink a lot of water!

DO try GNC Complete Body Cleansing!

Bottom Line:
Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Comments about GNC GNC Preventive Nutrition® Complete Body Cleansing Program:

I am on Day 4 of the complete cleansing program. I do recommend this program as it has had great results thus far. I have lost about 6 lbs in the first 4 days. It does cause a little gas but nothing outrageous. Bowel movements are about 3 a day. I am a 170 lb, 24 yr old Male so results may vary. FOR MAXIMUM results and this is how I have used it, follow the nutritional diet perfectly. All natural organic foods, no caffeine, small portions, etc (it's all included in the package). Here is a break down so far: Day 1- very hungry, very tired (as diet recommends NO caffeine), ill mood. Day 2- Already lost 5 lbs since Day 1, regained some energy, overall felt a little better. Day 3- Almost full energy back, not as hungry, face/neck fat reduced tremendously, complements on weight loss. Day 4- Full energy, lost 6lbs total so far, body feels good. 3 more days to go, it feels GREAT to be cleansing the body out and lose some fat in the process. The AM morning pills do not taste great but champ up and get over it. I do not see why people are so negative about this program. TRY IT!

Took this just to cleanse myself, never tried it before, 40 yrs old, I thought it was time to try something like this.

24 hours after first dose, woke up and had a very plentiful BM, day 1 I had no negative side effects. No gas, no cramps or discomfort. Look fwd to reporting on Day 2.

Comments about GNC GNC Preventive Nutrition® Complete Body Cleansing Program:

This is the first time i have ever taken a cleanse in this form. I read the last comment from the previous user and it was almost as if I had written the comments myself! I have trouble swallowing pills as is.. this has been extremely hard for me, because the pills are huge. It's been 4 days and honestly I don't feel a thing other than slight gas.. I'm a little "flat" in mood, but that could be other things? So, I'm not sure what to think. I'm drinking 5 bottles of water at least a day, eating well and following the plan. I just feel like I'm taking placebos??? I'm going to finish the product since I've made it this far.. We'll see what the coming days bring..

Comments about GNC GNC Preventive Nutrition® Complete Body Cleansing Program:

I tend to have intestinal problems [...] This product was not for me. I ate healthy and was only able to take the pills for one day due to severe nausea and vomiting. The taste is also horrible and the pills are large. However; I am not suggesting that the product is ineffective for everyone. I just would not recommend it to first time users or a person like myself who experiences regular digestive problems. The case may be that I need something more gentle on my stomach. Like I said before,it may be for some people,but not for everyone. The great thing is that GNC will give you a full refund if you take the product back,so get your money back if it doesn't work!

Comments about GNC GNC Preventive Nutrition® Complete Body Cleansing Program:

This cleansing product to me was not as bad as some reviews claim it is. I feel most people who gave this product a bad review were either using it for the wrong reasons (to loose weight) or had horrible eating habits to begin with. I do not tolerate whiners at all so I had to comment on that. YES, the pills are nasty with an after taste, YES the powder has a horrible taste/smell to it but as we all know, this is a cleanser not gummy bear vitamins! Over all, I did not think this product was intolerable.
Anyway, we all know everything good comes with a little sacrifice so I hope you find this info helpful.
For me the first 2 days, to be exact, were the hardest. Just FYI – I continued to take my multi-vitamins every day, did drink PLENTY of water, and stayed away from sugar/sweets, caffeine, dairy, and red meat. My diet mainly consisted of: Chicken, fish, spinach/mixed greens salads, olive oil & vinegar salad dressing, different veggies, fruit, soups, wheat/wholegrain bread and brown rice. I did have a little bit of cream cheese one day and natural honey on wheat toast twice (different days), just because I was REALLY craving something sweet.

Day one: Low energy, felt out of it all day. I love coffee and not having my fix in the morning was really, really hard. I experienced a mild headache all day; some gas. Going to the bathroom was not a problem – I did not feel I needed to "run" to the bathroom, but I did feel I really had to use it. All day, I felt like I needed a nap.

Day two: Still low energy, mild headache. Felt a brief nausea attack (for about 10 min) late afternoon, had mild kidney/back ache. Normal bathroom breaks, gassy. Felt so sleepy, I took 2 short 15-20 min naps during the day.

Day three: Had more energy but not feeling 100%, gassy, mild kidney/back ache, no headache – felt a little more normal. Normal bathroom breaks (more bowel than usual – felt it was really doing it's job of cleansing my intestines). Low energy but not sleepy.

Day four thru Day seven: Very mild symptoms. No headaches, no kidney/back ache, still gassy, normal bathroom breaks. Felt hungry most of the day, craved sweets.

In conclusion, I did not experience any cramping or diarrhea at all; bathroom breaks were normal (once every day). I did not feel 100% most of the 7 days of the cleanse but felt great mentally because I knew I was doing something good for my body (it actually makes me want to cleanse more often). I'd like to add that I did not count my calories, as I did not want to loose weight. I am not on a strict diet but do have healthy eating habits. I was 122 lbs when I started the cleanse, I'm now 119 lbs.

Comments about GNC GNC Preventive Nutrition® Complete Body Cleansing Program:

Besides the first couple days of being a little tired and gassy I really had no terrible side effects. My husband on the other hand did have some stomach issues the first day but since we started the program on a Sunday we had the comfort of being at home. The dinner supplements were the worst, especially the green pill but it wasn't so bad where we felt we needed to choke them down. Mixing the powder with fresh squeezed OJ in a bottle and shaking it was the best way to mix it. It's very difficult to stir it in. We followed the meal plan but varied the meals based on what we wanted that day and made sure everything was organic, fresh and around 1500 calories a day. I've always been a healthy eater but I learned a lot about soy and organic foods. I had never tried soy milk before and both my husband and I liked it very much and my husband really likes soy yogurt now. Who would have thought! We both lost weight and I feel wonderful.

Comments about GNC GNC Preventive Nutrition® Complete Body Cleansing Program:

I tried this product and I hated it. It tasted nasty and I would gag after I took the pills. Gave me so much gas that it hurt and it didn't clean me out at all. Then if you have two drinks after taking the pills 7 hours earlier you will get sicker than a dog. It was a waste of money so I would try to find something else.

Comments about GNC GNC Preventive Nutrition® Complete Body Cleansing Program:

After reading the comments and trying the product its basically a gimic. I was already working out 5 days a week and on a 1200-1300 calorie diet with water. If your weren't already doing this then of course you lost weight quickly because you've shocked your body and made change. A CLEANSE should do exactly that no matter what. This product is basically a diet plan and the pills and powder are just a cute add on.

Comments about GNC GNC Preventive Nutrition® Complete Body Cleansing Program:

I was having alot of stomach issues. I was constipated, bloated, gassy. I wanted to start a new diet and eat healthier. This product worked well for me and I felt alot better while using this product. I will note that when you start taking this product, leave your appointment book empty for the first day. I had alot of severe cramping the first day and diarrhea. I was also fatigued. The second day the side effects were less and then on the third day is when I really started to feel better. I would take again (bi-yearly).

This is my second time taking this in the past 2 years, it is very easy to use. Take the pills and drink the powder, pretty simple. Yes you will have gas, stomach aches and other symptoms, but that's apart of the whole body cleanser. People are complaining about it, but you know nothing comes easy without a little discomfort....All that means is it's working. You will have to build a taste for the pre/pro-botics, but besides that very satisfied.

Comments about GNC GNC Preventive Nutrition® Complete Body Cleansing Program:

I have read numerous reviews on this product. What I have found is that you have to eat three meals a day and drink PLENTY of water and stay off the fatty foods. The powder I found to mix with orange juice in a bottle and shake it other wise it has a hard time dissolving. At first it does make you tired, but that slowly goes away. I experienced abdomen discomfort and on the spot bathroom breaks, but nothing I was not expecting. Plenty of gas though. Lucky I work in an environment where we are outside. I do feel better at the end of the week. Remember drink lots of water.

Comments about GNC GNC Preventive Nutrition® Complete Body Cleansing Program:

First of all...do your research on total body cleansing. It is NOT a pleasant experience for most - especially those who have never cleansed before.

Having symptoms such as nausea, fatigue, bloating, gas, feeling sick, heartburn...are all signs that the cleanse is doing it's job of removing toxins and build-up in the body. That's the point of doing a cleanse. Genreally speaking, these negative symptoms only last the first few days of a cleanse. ALSO - a total body cleanse is quite a bit harsher on your body that just a colon cleanse.

That said, I am on day two of this program. It was recommended by the GNC clerk to me as a start to a diet program. Day one was pretty uncomfortable; gas, bloating, fatigue & a headache. I didn't drink enough water, most cleanses recommend drinking 64 oz of water a day while on the cleanse (this is half a gallon or 8 1 C glasses of water)

So far this morning I don't have any side effects, but it's only been an hour since I took the AM packets.

Based on what I've learned about cleansing side effetcs, I think this product is pretty standard. You can google "total cleanse side effects" and see for yourself.

Comments about GNC GNC Preventive Nutrition® Complete Body Cleansing Program:

I had researched detox plans and kits for about a month before going to gnc and the clerk talking me into purchasing this product. I hate to report that the side effects have been horrible. I woke up at 4am this morning with the WORST cramps of my life (and thats saying a lot since I've given birth to 3 kids naturally - no drugs)one minute i would be sweating profusely and the next I would be shivering and curled up in the fetal position. I was hoping that this product would help to boost my energy levels... its done the COMPLETE OPPOSITE! The only good thing that I have to report is that I have experienced more bowel movements than I normally do but also an extenisve amount of gas and headaches, which I never get. Im currently on day two and Im just extremely hopeful that my body will start to respond to the product differently over the next few days. fingers-crossed!

Comments about GNC GNC Preventive Nutrition® Complete Body Cleansing Program:

I'm only on day two, and I am considering stopping. On the evening of day 1, I had severe heartburn and a little nausea. Also, had a really difficult time getting to sleep. On the morning of day 2 after taking the AM packet the heartburn and nausea came back strong. Don't know why it is affecting me this way. I am also following the diet (created my own meals following their do's/don'ts). I lost 1.5 lbs in one day, and by reading the reviews I would like to try to stick it out til the end, but this heartburn and nausea is really uncomfortable. Anyone else have a similar issue? Did it go away after a couple days? I'm gonna stick it out for at least one more day while downing Tums, and if I'm still feeling sick, I'll just do the diet, not the pills.

Comments about GNC GNC Preventive Nutrition® Complete Body Cleansing Program:

I just finished the program and received exceptional results. I lost 9 lbs and actually feel pretty good. The program knocks you down to a very low calorie diet which likely has a lot to do with the results, and it makes you eat very healthy for 7 straight days. If you couple this program with exercise you can really achieve the results you are looking for. Running is a little tough since you are on such a low calorie diet but even 2-3 miles a day goes a long way.

I will probably do it again at some point. Make sure to plan to lose out on a weekend out with your friends because you can't consume alcohol. Make sure to get your sober driver commitment out of the way that week also.

Comments about GNC GNC Preventive Nutrition® Complete Body Cleansing Program:

I recently used this product to get a jump on my on-going weight loss mission. I started using it last Monday and I was 200.6 lbs, by Saturday I was 195.4 lbs. I did not follow the enclosed diet plan although I did watch my diet, fruit, veggies, soups, turkey and seafood only. But on Saturday I had McDonalds the fried chicken sandwich, fries and soda but the rest of the week I was strict on myselft and I worked out 30 minutes a day Mon-Fri@the gym 10-15 mins on the eliptical, crunches, arms and legs on weight equipment. I got it while it was 1/2 price so I think it was worth what I paid for it...ordered 2 so I will be using the second one for the bi-annual.

Comments about GNC GNC Preventive Nutrition® Complete Body Cleansing Program:

I have mixed feelings about this product. On the plus side, I lost 6 lbs, belly fat is noticeably less, it's mild and wasn't upsetting even when taken on an empty stomach and it allowed more than ample time to get to a restroom. On the negative side, I'm not certain it cleansed anything, the pills are huge and the fiber mix can gag the drinker if he/she looks, tastes or smells it, BM was every other day rather than daily, moderate/severe cramping occurred several times as a precurser to a BM. For [$], it's over priced.For a first-time user who is hesitant about this whole concept, this is a safe, easy to use product with minimal side affects and I recommend it. As a semi-annual follow-on, my advice is to look elsewhere.

I started on the plan on Monday at 182.0 by Wednesday day 3, I was 172.4. I worked out 5 days a week before starting the program and was looking to do a body cleanser, although this is my first time, Day 1 was by far the hardest. I had little energy and stayed home most of the day. Day 2 was a little better. I follow the diet plan by only eating lean meats, vegetables, fruits, and plenty water. I notice my skin complexion was much prettier. The only bad reviews I read were by people who were looking for a quick fix and not looking to change their lifestyle. You must eat a very healthy diet for this to work. I will continue to use this product 2x per year.

The products works well when you do not consume the wrong foods (you'll see a big difference) and you don't have to follow the meal plan exactly the way it's written.

I'm on my last day of the cleanse. I am not sure whether it's really cleansing my body (how can you tell?). I am going to the bathroom regularly, but I have never had trouble with that. I do have a lot of gas... I have also a mild headache. Overall I feel good and this cleanse has encouraged me to eat healthy, more fruits and vegetables, very little processed food, and drink more water. I am also exercising more. I have lost about 3 pounds, not a lot, but I'm happy overall with this product. Oh, and I don't find the pills or fiber blend that disgusting... they don't taste great, but it takes a moment to take them.

Comments about GNC GNC Preventive Nutrition® Complete Body Cleansing Program:

Do you have to be disciplined for this to work and get great results? Of course you do.
That is the same principles you should apply to life. You get great results out of this product if you follow the plan and workout while you are on it.
I started on Monday 2/14 and I was 184 pds. I weighed myself 2 days later and I was 177.
Is there some pain in the beginning? Yes there is. If you want great results then get your mind right and break through those walls.
If you did not get results, then you did not follow the plan. I highly recommend this for people who are looking to build a foundation to a better life.

Comments about GNC GNC Preventive Nutrition® Complete Body Cleansing Program:

I, like most, read the negative reviews after I bought the product and felt as though it was not doing any good. The first few days were HORRIBLE!!. I had gas, I was bloated, I was cramping, and the pills are HUGE and the fiber and prebiotic blend does indeed taste like chalk. When I read all these reviews, the common conclusion was that those people did not like it and never completed it. I have decided, despite those side effects, to keep going and it was worth it. I am not trying to loose weight so I do not stick STRICTLY to the meal plan, but i did noticeably change eating habits and started minor exercising and it has made a HUGE difference. I suggest people who are going to do this cleanse, expect it to get a little ugly, but stick it out and make changes to your life style!

Comments about GNC GNC Preventive Nutrition® Complete Body Cleansing Program:

I read the reviews and was a little worried about the reports of the headaches. I started this a few days ago and on the first day had the WORST headache. Around 5 in the afternoon I had a soda (completely against the diet that is reccomended). The headache went away within a few minutes,since then I have stuck to the diet religously and drink a sugar free lemon sweetened tea and have had great results. I have definitely seen and felt a huge difference. I would reccomend this to a friend if they were trying to detox their system.

Comments about GNC GNC Preventive Nutrition® Complete Body Cleansing Program:

Apparently alot of people are looking to this and other cleanses as a quick fix for: a) weight loss, b) IBS or c) severe constipation. For all three groups, a stronger and more extreme cleanse might be in order.

As it says right on the box, this cleanse is for PREVENTATIVE health and is best used if you're already healthy but want to clear a little excess gunk out of your system and return your body to a state of healthy equilibrium. This was me, and I found that following the diet plan (not the prescribed meals, but the prescribed foods) and taking the cleanse helped me with my energy levels, complexion and other things a cleanse is supposed to do.

The key here is to choose a week that you can actually DO the program, and to adhere to the foods they ask you not to eat (processed foods, red meats, dairy, simple sugars, butter, caffeine, preservatives etc.). You should also, as it says again in the box, drink at least 12 ounces of decaffeinated tea and 8 glasses of water a day. Doing this alone for a week will help, and doing the cleanse on top of that helps even more.

I'd have to ask how many of the people that hate the cleanse are actually reading the directions and following them and/or using the product as a preventative measure and not a rapid weight loss tool.

P.S. The caloric intake of the attached meal plan should be adjusted by the individual user based on activity level and size. The average American will feel a little hungry following the meal plan as prescribed (it's about 1500 calories a day), but that's because we're used to overeating. Substituting in more snacks with raw foods (fruits, veggies, raw nuts and raisins, rice cakes with organic almond butter) will help fight off the hunger without pushing the daily meal plan into 3000 calorie territory where it's actually taxing your digestive system more than helping. The key is to stick to raw and unprocessed foods as much as possible. The body has an easier time breaking down a strawberry banana smoothie with soy milk that you made in your blender than it does digesting a fried Oreo. Yeah I'm looking at you.

Comments about GNC GNC Preventive Nutrition® Complete Body Cleansing Program:

first off all the negative reviews here, people are fools, everyones body is different, and before taking any product if youre on meds for something else you should always consult your doctor before starting anything. I liked the product a lot, you take a couple of pills in the morning and drink a powder with your breakfast, not complicated, doesnt taste like candy but its not that bad, at night, you just take some more pills. DONE. for me, it did give me some gas but it didnt make me feel like I was going to soil my pants like with laxatives and junk like that, my bowel movements were at the same time as always, but just know that once you sit down, be prepared to sit there for a while, its amazing how much waste your body holds, the waste isnt diahrrea like which means your body isnt wasting a bunch of fluids expelling the waste either. It worked great for me.

Comments about GNC GNC Preventive Nutrition® Complete Body Cleansing Program:

So depsite all the bad reviews on this detox I liked it. First it is easy to take. I do not know how people can not read the box directions under the lid. You take pills in the am right away than along with the powder drink mix with juice or water with breakfast. I suggest mixing with orange juice. Put it in an empty water bottle and shake, its not gross. Than at dinner you take the other pill packet and one pill from the bottle simple. This detox is to rid your body of toxins not for an instant weight loss. Yes the pills taste like garlic in the AM but seriously its like 15 seconds of "ew." I had soooo much gas with this but read that it was my body clearing out my colon and instentine tract. I had regular bowel movements but they were easier than before. At the end of the detox the gas simply went away so I knew it rid my body of bad toxins. You need to eat healthy on this detox. The writing is small on the menu plan but you can read it. I did not follow exactly but am a vegetarian so it was easy to eat well. I had no dairy besides a little cheese. No soda only water and simply ate healthy. This is a detox for a body cleanse such as in prep for a healthy diet/lifestyle.

Comments about GNC GNC Preventive Nutrition® Complete Body Cleansing Program:

I went into the neighborhood GNC to find a supplement for my stomach problems and IBS. I have a problem with pain, bloating, constipation, and gas. I keep a food journal and do not eat foods that can aggravate it, it just randomly happens. So I wanted to find something to provide some comfort. I had been reading good things about peppermint tablets, as the peppermint tea I drink daily also seems to help. I went into the store, and the lady working there was very nice, but she was very pushy for GNC products. I kept asking 'well, what about this product here? it seems to be comparable' and she would say 'oh, no, our products are the best.' I decided to give the Complete Body cleansing a try. It was a buy one, get one half off deal, but I had to keep the sales person from shoving the second box into my hands. NO, i said. I will try out the first box and see how I like it. Sheesh. I think it is overpriced, for sure, but I can see it helping a little bit. When I get constipated, I usually take laxatives, which can get kind of, well you know. This actually helped with my bowel movements in the morning, and it did feel great. Pardon me if that's TMI, but I came home and read some reviews on here, and was shocked by how many people say it caused them to feel sick, get bloated, and have trouble going to the bathroom. The pills smell weird, and don't taste good. To be honest, I stopped taking the powder after day one. Blech. That stuff is gross. Plus, I take my own probiotic and fiber supplements anyway, so I figured to hell with it, I'll skip it. My advice to you is do lots of research before you go in there, and stick to your guns. Like any salesperson, I'm sure they get commission by selling a GNC product. Read reviews, and don't get swayed into saying yes to a product you don't want or may not work. This is your body, and you deserve to see other people's opinions rather than be pushed by some salesperson.

Comments about GNC GNC Preventive Nutrition® Complete Body Cleansing Program:

I have read many reviews in the past about cleansings but decided to give one a try. Im usually the type to do research and reviews before buying something like this but I was close to a GNC and purchased it anyway. The sales clerk recommended this one and stated he has used it himself. And while I didnt believe his sales pitch, especially since it was a GNC product I reluctantly bought it anyway. I followed the instructions exactly but I didnt do any kind of diet with it. I did start drinking more water because of the monster size, bitter, chalky tasting pills. The prebiotic powder didnt mix well and had clumps of powder that took forever to mix. After completing the 7-day program I saw, nor felt, little cleansing. It did help my stomach from being upset from foods I ate, but I could have achieved that with the pre and probiotics alone without having to take the 8 other monster pills. I considered taking it back for a refund however the box read you can take it back any GNC product after taking it in as little as 10 days and return the unused portion. Well its a 7 day program and there isn't any unused portions so I felt guilty taking back an empty box. So bottom line DO NOT WASTE YOUR MONEY ON THIS PRODUCT!

Comments about GNC GNC Preventive Nutrition® Complete Body Cleansing Program:

I purchased this product without reading the reviews and was horrified when I found them… it scared the heck out of me!I went to GNC to purchase Jillian Michaels Jump Start [...] I started taking the pills on Tuesday; they were a little hard to get down at times but no big deal. The AM powder is a little lumpy, like corn starch, but taste like watered down OJ. I found that if you mix it WELL with a fork or add a little warm water the lumps go away…I even put it in my coffee one morning. I wanted to follow the diet plan that came with it but even with my reading glasses I could not read the small print so I created my own which consists of:Breakfast: 3 boiled eggs, 1-2 cups of black coffeeLunch: 2 slices of deli turkey rolled up in 2 slices of baby swiss cheese, 1 granny smith apple Dinner: 1 tilapia filet or chicken breast, 1 sweet potato w/ small pat of margarine, 1 cup of broccoli w/ lemon pepper, salt, and a squeeze of lemon.64 oz. of water (very important)I ate sushi one night with one glass of red wine and ½ lb. of crab legs another night with one wheat roll.By Thursday AM I had already lost 10 lbs.! (Probably water weight, but who cares...it was gone!) I weighed on Saturday and had lost another 5 lbs.! My total weight loss with this product is 15 lbs. in 6 days...totally amazing. Now that my week is up I will go back to GNC to get some advice on what supplements I should be taking, start a 1,200 calorie diet, and begin weight training. Oh yeah, did I mention I am a 43 year old mother of 3? Anyone can do this program.

[...] telling me that it was the best cleanse to get. But once I started this regimen, I felt like I got swindled. The pills & powder mix had a disgusting taste and they also made me sick to my stomach. My body didn't give me any indication that it was being cleansed. Overall, I didn't notice a change.

Comments about GNC GNC Preventive Nutrition® Complete Body Cleansing Program:

The first couple days I realized I was having a few things I was not suppose to such as small amounts of Dairy and such. So just now on day 4 i'm following it much stricter. I noticed the first 2 days I was very constipated. Today though lets say that went away. I mix the morning drink with a Naked drink to cover up any taste. So far besides the bubbling stomach and gas I feel pretty good. I feel like my pores are more open if that makes sense. I've even decided to start using more natural soaps and such which is great. I did wake up with a headache at 5am but this is a Detox and when your body gets rid of toxins you will feel slightly worse before feeling better. After this I am motivated to eat better and will start taking probiotocs and fiber which I prefer (physillum husk) as well as a multi vitamin. It's helping me to realize I need to realize if there are tons of ingredients and of half I can not pronounce the name I shouldn't eat it. I've heard things like smart butter is about 1 chemical or molecule from being considered plastic so why they hell would I eat it? Hopefully by the end I will have more benefits from this and such too only complaint is of course it was a little over priced.

Comments about GNC GNC Preventive Nutrition® Complete Body Cleansing Program:

Very disappointed I went with this product. The gentleman at the GNC store recommended this over all other quick cleanse products. I feel a bit swindled, honestly, and I'm sure it was a power-play on his part to increase his commission for selling a GNC product.
You would think after taking the morning package of pills, drinking the fiber-powder, then taking the evening packet ALONG WITH another pill each day for seven days that I would see or feel a difference (afterall, the GNC-guy said I was likely to lose 10-15lbs off this thing...that should have been a warning).
Frankly, I get better "results" with Activia yogurt.
In short, don't buy.

Comments about GNC GNC Preventive Nutrition® Complete Body Cleansing Program:

I am very disappointed in this product. I am very health concious. I work out regularly. I eat right. I have a 22 BMI. I am on day 6 and feel as though I am taking a placebo. I feel nothing. If I am being cleansed then my body is keeping it a secret from me. I know for sure my colon is NOT being cleansed. As for the rest who's to tell? I smell a garlic smell all morning after taking the am pills. I am 100% not satisfied but not bold enough to take an empty box back to the store. My husband is in retail and I will not be "that" person. I am bummed it didn't work. I had 2 friends by cleansing products from other companies and they are way happy with the results..time to go to walgreens or trader joes!Giving it one star was too much!

Comments about GNC GNC Preventive Nutrition® Complete Body Cleansing Program:

I followed the cleanse exactly, even went with the recommended diet even though the guy inside the store said that you could eat how you normally would eat. I felt nothing from the cleanse, and was constipated for 3 of the 7 days, and had gas so bad that my wife could barely stand to be in the same room as me for most of the week. The diet does not allow for much, but why not stick to it for 7 days. Unless there are some major changes that happened in my body that I cannot feel or or measure, I would say this cleanse was completely useless. The fiber packet does not mix with anything, is clumpy, and tastes terrible. The pills are big and made my burps smell and taste like I had eaten a pizza topped with a polish dog. Not worth the time, or the money, very dissapointed, and would not recommend.

Comments about GNC GNC Preventive Nutrition® Complete Body Cleansing Program:

I had put on a little weight over the holidays and wanted to start a diet after the new year. I've never done a body cleanse before and I thought it would be best to start with a clean slate. After doing a little research, I decided that I definitely did not want a program where I couldn't eat. This product was recommended to me by the GNC employee saying that I could go about my daily routine without the discomfort of using the bathroom excessively. Day 1: The directions are somewhat confusing as to what to take when. The powder does not mix well with the juice (remaining clumpy at the surface) and does not taste well. The pills also have a prominent taste. I was relieved to find that I wasn't using the bathroom all day but there was an excess amount of smelly gas. The nutrition suggestions say eat only organic foods but I am on a budget and opted to just eat as healthy as I can but I did not refrain from eating meat and cheese. By the end of the week, the thought of the powder awaiting me at breakfast made me lose my appetite but I stuck in there. I swallowed the pills between bites of food to disguise the taste better, which helped. I had little energy throughout the entire process, opting to skip out on the gym until the cleanse was complete. Day seven (and the last day) I felt nauseated throughout the entire day but was relieved to finally be finished. The first day off the detox, I felt dizzy and nauseated, losing my breakfast in the garbage can. But I have lost the weight that I had put on over the holidays and will continue with my healthy diet.

Back starting aching from the constipation...i stopped product and am taking back to get my money back hopefully.. i do not recommend at all.

Comments about GNC GNC Preventive Nutrition® Complete Body Cleansing Program:

I went to GNC and asked the lady what she reccomended for a cleanse. She gave me this one and said that all the people that work here swear by it. So I decided to try it. I havent been eating the best and I wanted something to help cleanse my digestive system and not make me feel so bloated. I the next day I tried it. First of all the powder does not mix with any juice well, so you have little powder chunks in your juice and is disgusting to drink. The pills were fine; they smelled a little but thats it. I ate by the guidelines that it gave me and by the 3rd day I was constipated and super bloated that my stomache stuck out of my pants. I said to myself "just stick to it". By the 5th day I was still constipated, gasey and bloated that I was taking gas-ex and metimucial. I stopped using it. Maybe it was me but it didn't work for me. I used the Standard Process 21 day cleanse before and that worked great.

Comments about GNC GNC Preventive Nutrition® Complete Body Cleansing Program:

I read a lot of reviews before going with this product so I thought I'd add my opinion. I am 31 and very health conscious. I work out 6 days a week and eat a healthy diet. I occasionally do a cleanse because I tend to indulge at times and want a fresh slate before the holidays. I am currently on day 4. Day 1 is the worse thus far. I had some stomach pain and laid on the couch for the majority of the day relaxing because my bathroom usage increased. This is to be expected. It is cleaning you out. After that first day it is smooth sailing. I took the fiber in a smoothie and drank tons of water. The pills have a spicey taste going down but aren't that by. This product is not meant to loose rapid weight. I have lost about 2 pounds but I am 6'1" and weigh in at 180. I don't need to loose tons of weight. One thing I did not do is the diet plan. For someone who is as active as I am, I could not change up my diet to only eat the 1500 calories in the diet plan. I would probably drop weight if I did that but wouldn't be able to function very well.

Comments about GNC GNC Preventive Nutrition® Complete Body Cleansing Program:

I'm so surprised at how many negative reviews this product has recieved. Its seems like most people that have reviewed this product poorly are you using this product for something other then its intended for. For instance, this product is not the cure all for constipation and is not going to make you have a BM every 30 min but it seems like a lot of people are complaining that its not doing this. This product has a high fiber content which in theory should help make you more regular (this means more consistant) but if you are prone very unregular BM's then soley an increase in fiber may not be enough for you and you make have to add a gentle stool softner to your diet. I took this product personally to jump start a diet. I wanted to start fresh and cleanse my entire body from the inside out. I personally lost ove 18 lbs. on this product in 7 days. I followed the diet strictly. I ate no gluten, no salt, no perservatives, and no processed starches. I also exercised moderately and kept myself very hydrated. My overall results were: weight loss, enhanced energy and mental awareness, and an overall feeling of improved health.

I went to GNC looking for a quality colon cleanse product. I was looking at a non-GNC product which was recommended by a friend. I was talked into the GNC Total Cleanse by a GNC associate. What a terrible recommendation and product. I am a regular once-a-day BM'r. This product has slowed my system down to a snails pace. I actually became constipated, and that never happens. Maybe I misunderstood what the product is supposed to do. Don't buy it! I wish I could get my money back--What a terrible product.

Comments about GNC GNC Preventive Nutrition® Complete Body Cleansing Program:

I have read a lot of reviews of this product, and I am a little overwhelmed by the hideous grammar and spelling. If you can't put a sentence together, you might not be able to understand the very clearly labeled packets and instructions.

I eat a fairly clean diet, and use this product as a tool to jump start my progress again (when I am on a plateau). Does it make me a little gassy? Sure. Am I in pain? No. Is the gas a little embarrassing? At times. I don't change my diet too much while taking this product - I limit processed meats (cold cuts) and I limit non organic dairy products. It doesn't help me lose a lot of weight, and ultimately isn't really designed as a quick weight loss tool. If you are trying to drop 10 lbs, a week before a wedding, or to fit into that bikini - then this product isn't for you. This is not a quick fix/band aid solution. This is for people who want to detox their liver, colon, etc.

Also, on a side note, the sales reps at GNC are very knowledgeable, but before you buy something that effects your health - you should really inform yourself as to what it is, and how it will effect you.

Comments about GNC GNC Preventive Nutrition® Complete Body Cleansing Program:

I decided to try this out as my co-workers recommended it.

I didn't follow the supposed diet to be honest and I feel great. Used the bathroom more often and have a regular movement. Depending on what you eat will determine if your gassier or not.

I will say I have headaches more often which is manageable.

Overall I like this package but think its slightly over priced.

Really like the product
By sharlenev from Seat Pleasant, MD on 10/29/2010
Pros:
Alleviates Symptoms, No Side Effects, Quick-Acting, Simple To Take
Bottom Line:
Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Comments about GNC GNC Preventive Nutrition® Complete Body Cleansing Program:

I found this product to be very useful. The biggest problem was the eating plan because the writing was so small that you could barely see it! So I pretty much ate the way I normally do and stayed off caffeine. There was some gas of course, but isn't that the case most times when dealing with the colon? Otherwise, it worked very well for me. I went to the bathroom twice most days and really felt the difference in my system as the detox started. I definitely plan to do it again.

I am so uncomfortable and worse off than if I would have eaten a box of shredded wheat. I would never buy it again much less recommend it to anyone! More than a waste of my hard earned money.

Comments about GNC GNC Preventive Nutrition® Complete Body Cleansing Program:

I am on my second day of the cleanse and i still haven't had any bowel movements. The sales rep told me that i should have 2 more bowel movements than i usually do. i have however had a lot of peeing due to all the water and tea suggested. I do not have a negative or positive response to this product just as yet, every body is different and maybe its taking my body a but longer to react to the cleanse or maybe it just wont work for me. i'm just gonna wait and see, i will repost at the end of the seventh day with the results.

Comments about GNC GNC Preventive Nutrition® Complete Body Cleansing Program:

I have used this product twice in the last year before 6 month doctor visits. I have labs drawn with a complete work up. The last two times I've been perfect. No high cholestrol or fat levels. Everything was normal. I just start it a week before I go to the doctor. I will continue to do this. Kinda like my own lab experiment. I did have mild flatulence both times, and some stomach pain the 2nd time, I believe from the pepper in a few of the pills, but other than that its a breeze to do this 7 day cleanse. I think possibly taking glutathione about 7 to 14 days prior & during the cleanse would assist & ease the liver to help move out the free radicals & toxins with out the stomach pain. Won't know till I try it, but I believe this will work from the research I've done.

I was constipated and had severe pain. I was bloated and miserable. I would not suggest this too anyone!!

Comments about GNC GNC Preventive Nutrition® Complete Body Cleansing Program:

I used this product because I was feeling bloated and constipated from eating fatty food at a recent BBQ. I normally eat very healthy. It took until day 6 before I got the desired results, but day 6 and 7 where "very productive". I was back to normal thereafter. Sure some of the pills don't taste great, but it's not a 5 star meal it's a cleanse/detox product. Take 15 seconds each morning/evening and just swallow them. No big deal.

Comments about GNC GNC Preventive Nutrition® Complete Body Cleansing Program:

My husband and I are on day 3. It is sort of a pain getting the hang of what and when to take, but anyone can get used to it. Just read the box every time you eat. Follow meal plan and get great results. I normally eat organic/no meat anyway so this was right up my alley. After moving 3 times in a week, and a pizza diet from never finding my pots n pans, then a 9 day migraine, I had to get EVERYTHING OUT OF ME. This is no good for my bowel....I normally have no issues, whereas my husband who eats like an obese teenager spends an hour a day in our bathroom, I am in there five min at a time, five times a day...not once in two days since starting this program almost killed me, and he is on day 3 with no luck. Oddly, my energy level was up today and I felt better than I have in a looooong time. Side effects are usual for a detox. Sore muscles, back, headache. Just drink tons of water. We shall see. I'll repost at end of 7 days.

Comments about GNC GNC Preventive Nutrition® Complete Body Cleansing Program:

I TRIED to take this product,and I took the am packet. Those nasty garlic horse pills made me gag and throw-up in my mouth *sry, tmi* and I have NO problem taking pills. I took them with a full glass of water and not even 20 mins later my body was hacking them out of my system. I have taken a full body cleanser before with NO problems, however I will never waste my money like this again. Congrats to the ones who have completed it successfully, and to the others I truly feel your pain. The acidophilus pills did work great though, I had to take them due to use of antibiotics.

Comments about GNC GNC Preventive Nutrition® Complete Body Cleansing Program:

This has multiple steps. You have to take a pack of vitamins in the morning, mix an awful fiber pack into juice during the day, take an additional pill during the day, and then take a vitamen pack in the evening. I was determined to not waste my money and put up with the hassle of multiple steps, really for the two weeks that you have to take it I could have dealt with the steps, but the morning pack contained two large yellow pills ("horse pills") that were so strong and reaked of garlic that I could not swallow them without gagging and wanting to upchuck. I do not normally have a gag reflex, so I guarantee it was not due to their size. After choking down the pills I burped awful garlic all day, and it stayed in my mouth. It was horrid. I am used to vitamens and supplements and the awful taste of meds. I can handle fiber and metallic tastes as most supplements and vitamens may contain, but this one was just too much. I did manage half the routine with minimal results. I can't say that I saw a significant enough result to warrant gagging down the horrid yellow pills and dealing with their after taste for the remainder of my day ;) ... I will be trying a different product for sure.

I didn't spend a lot on this, so I'm grateful for that, but overall disappointed because NOTHING has happened. I'm going to finish it out and see it through, but I'm not hopeful at this point.

Comments about GNC GNC Preventive Nutrition® Complete Body Cleansing Program:

Let me start by saying that I am a very unhealthy eater. I have been taking this product for 4 days and if nothing else, it keeps my eating in check. I have been eating more fruits and veggies than I ever have and I drink between 70-90 ounces of water everyday! I have no problems taking the powder. I put it in a cup of OJ (w/ pulp) every morning and I can't taste it. The AM pills leave that garlic taste that everyone talks about. I eat a 100 calorie pack of almonds around 10AM and this tasts goes away. I have lost 2 pounds so far and I have a lot more energy! The reason I didn't give this 5 stars is because I am not one to take a ton of pills- and I add a multi-vitamin on top of these.

Comments about GNC GNC Preventive Nutrition® Complete Body Cleansing Program:

After reading comments listed here about this product, and hearing others give their reviews I thought I would apply my 2-cents for what its worth. First of all this is not a "Weight Loss" program. Some may loose weight others may not, but the focus is not weight loss. If you have ever researched "Total Body Cleanse" you will know that once on any cleansing program, things will change with-in your body. As toxins are being released they can make you emotional, moody, or physicaly ill. It kind of gets worse before it gets better kind of thing.....Please take the time to visit your Doctor and discuss this program before you try it. You may be taking some vitimins or meds that will conflict with the suppliments in the package. My experience with this product was favorable. The pills a little big but coated enough to side on down. The fiber mixture in the morning was mixed with 8oz of very cold Apple Juice in a shake bottle....let it sit for a minute or so and the foam would disapear. About 15 mins after drinking the powder mix....I did feel gassy! The fiber in the drink will do that....I just drank some more water and the problem corrected itself. The morning pills did have a slight after-taste. Just eat a nice lite breakfast after and the taste is gone. I stayed with the program for the full 7 days, I feel better, my skin is clear, my system is regular. I feel healthy. Would I do this again!!! YES I will. I do have a healthy life style so side effects for me were small. I guess the more processed foods you eat on a daily basis...they migrate to blood, kidneys.....liver, tummy...the more pronounced the side-effects will become. In any case I will look forward to this again. Take care, and I wish you all great results.

After having two kids (11 months apart)- I have tryin to get back in shape. I had exactly 15 pounds to go when I hit a plateau. No matter how much I drank, ran, swam, of did Spinning... So- I decided to do a cleanse. I thought I would get rid of all the "whatever" that was blocking my progress. The packets smell VERY BAD- I take them with OJ- and hold my nose!! I'M NOW ON DAY #4 AND HAVE ALREADY LOST 5 LBS!! I have also been drinking about a gallon of water a day, and walking for one hour and 30 minutes. All combined- It works great. You can never depend on one thing alone. And your body has to be "ready" for it!! Thanks :)

Comments about GNC GNC Preventive Nutrition® Complete Body Cleansing Program:

the morning pills arnt that awful.. Just take them with your breakfast.. I drank lots of water & would squeeze 1/2 a lemon in it.. you can always cut the pills in half.. sure the powder is a bit yucky..I mixed with a fork and try to get all the bumps out. then I put ice & 1/2 a lemon.. and drank it with a straw. One morning I had a banana smoothie & mixed it with the powder & couldn't taste it!
I did not take the additional vitamins that they were trying to sell me.. you are going through a cleanse & not eating any processed foods, caffeine, dairy, etc.. so you will feel a bit awful the 1st couple of days.. I got headaches for about 2 1/2 days.. nothing that a little advil can't help you with..
Today is my last day & I have lost 5 lbs. after doing this cleanse I feel more compelled to read food labels & choose healthier foods to eat, not the quick meals. I had no diarrhea at all.. just way more waste!

I used the cleanse for 7 days without much fan fare, didn't seem to do much or make anything better. While on the cleanse I discontinued other vitamin intake. The day after the cleanse I took my regular vitamins again and got very sick, headaches, upset stomach, light-headedness, dizziness and it even affected my speak. I have no idea why this happened but can only attribute it to using vitamins right after the cleanse.

Comments about GNC GNC Preventive Nutrition® Complete Body Cleansing Program:

My boyfriend and I use this cleanse twice a year. It's very simple to take and does not interrupt your daily routine at all. The pills don't taste the greatest, but what pills do? The powder packet mix, someone commented on how disgusting it was...I think they are insane. It tastes like watered down vitamin C. I maintain a very active and healthy lifestyle and I find this to be a great add-on twice a year. I literally watch my stomach bloat disappear. I usually lose a few pounds each time and overall feel lighter and my skin looks great. I've tried a few different cleanses and this is by far the easiest to take and least disruptive (if you know what I mean!).

Yep, the sales person talked me into this product too. I took the a.m. dose as instructed. The powder is the most disgusting thing I have ever drank. I was nauseous just smelling it. That should have been the first clue. Starting burping it up within 15 minutes. Again, I can't describe how disgusting this stuff is. An hour later I'm in the bathroom throwing up until I'm throwing up nothing but bile. I could not get the taste of it out of my mouth, throat and sinuses. It just sits in there like a cloud going nowhere. I had to eat hard candy the rest of the day to try to help with the lingering taste.

Well, it did clean me out. Just not in a good way.

I would give this product a negative 10 if I could.

I looked at product reviews online before purchasing this product. However, I allowed the GNC sales associate to talk me into buying this product. I bought two boxes for my husband and me. We started the next morning and you have to take 4 pills in addition to a drink mixture in the morning and the same in the evening. The formula was DISGUSTING!! I gagged numerous times and was ultimately unable to drink all of the formula due to its unsavory taste. My husband was able to finish his drink and paid for it by being sick for two days after only taking the morning portion of the cleanse. I bought probiotics as suggested by the GNC associate so that we would not get sick from the cleanse....unfortunately it did not work!!!!

Do not waste your money! I need to lose only about 5 lbs and thought this cleanse system was the way to go about beginning the weight loss process. Wrong! The pill packets taste horrible. The a.m. fiber drink does not dissolve and there is no way to mask the bad taste. The pills leave a horrible aftertaste that lasts all day! I also experienced severe stomach cramps and severe gas. The gas lasted the entire time. On day 6 I discovered that I had gained 2 lbs and quit using the product.

Comments about GNC GNC Preventive Nutrition® Complete Body Cleansing Program:

I went into the GNC store to see if they had a different product that I had researched on the website, but I wanted it right away and didn't want to wait for shipping. While I was there, I decided to ask about cleansing products, and the salesperson talked me into this. I hadn't researched cleansing products very much, so I should not have bought it. The salesperson knew nothing about health or nutrition, e.g. they had samples of acai and D3 chews at the counter and he couldn't tell me what either of them were for and he mispronounced acai. He also didn't know how carb blockers work. Anyway, this product: I didn't lose any weight, but I had already been dieting, exercising, and drinking a lot of water. The first 3 days I had extra energy and constantly had to pee. I also had 2 bowel movements each day with more waste than usual. I took this as a good sign: it felt "cleansing." Later in the day on Day 3 I started getting gas. Day 4 and 5 I had horrendous gas. Day 5 I also felt nauseous and evening of Day 5 I had explosive diarrhea. Day 6 and 7 I did not drink the fiber drink and the gas went away. The constant need to pee went away after Day 3. I'm thinking since I had an ok experience the first 3 days, perhaps this should be a 3-day cleanse and not 7. As for the product itself, the pills are gigantic and the AM packet tastes strongly of garlic. By Day 5 I could barely gag them down. The fiber drink tastes terrible and I'm not a juice drinker so I had nothing else to mix it with besides water. It does not mix well at all with just a spoon. I shook in a bottle and that dissolved it but then it also foamed up. I will look for a different cleanse product next time.

I have done the Master Cleanse 3 times but wanted to try something less intense, and this product turned out to be perfect. Honestly, I wouldn't have even known I was on a cleanse if it weren't for the fact that I abstained from alcohol and dairy for a week. The fiber mix has no taste whatsoever if you mix it into your breakfast smoothie (several recipes helpfully provided), and the pills are just like taking a couple of vitamin packets a day. I had no discomfort or side effects and now feel fantastic after finishing it. 5 stars!!

Comments about GNC GNC Preventive Nutrition® Complete Body Cleansing Program:

I have used internal cleansers before and decided to try GNC cleanser for the first time. It was over priced and did not work. Cleanser's are suppose to increase bowel movements, this product only gave me gas. DO YOUR SELF A FAVOR AND BUY NATURES SECRET "ULTIMATE CLEANSE" INSTEAD. It is cheaper and works but it is a month's supply.

Comments about GNC GNC Preventive Nutrition® Complete Body Cleansing Program:

I bought this product to jump start a diet. The mix was thick and absolutely disgusting, gave me chills just knowing i had to drink it!! The pills were HUGE and also hard to take and left a horrible after-taste. Made me very gassy and bloated and after the third day discontinued use because of feeling uncomfortable. On day four the mix set in and made me cramp very bad for two days and had very bad diarrhea. Guess the mix does work but couldn't leave my house!! NOT A GOOD PRODUCT!!

GNC 7 Day Complete Body Cleanse Review

Comments about GNC GNC Preventive Nutrition® Complete Body Cleansing Program:

I picked up this product based upon the recommendation of a GNC employee. I was looking for a cleanse/detox that wasn't too long, and didn't have severe side effects such as having to run to the bathroom a lot. This was my first cleanse/detox and I didn't know what to expect.
My first two-three days were absolutely horrible. I had bad headaches, was really cranky and overly emotional. Not like me at all!
Day four was completely different. I slept better, woke up with energy and noticed my skin looked better as well. Continued this way through day seven.
I wasn't looking to loose weight during this cleanse, but I did loose four pounds..which I'm certainly happy about.
Downside was the size of the pills and the garlic aftertaste of the morning package.
I would do this cleanse again!

Comments about GNC GNC Preventive Nutrition® Complete Body Cleansing Program:

I eat fairly healthy and work out regularly and wanted to do a cleanse with a focus on my intestense/colon. I bought this product after a recommendation from the sales rep at the store. I also bought one for my wife but she had to stop talking it after day 3 because it caused her so much discomfort. I am at the end of the last day and besides the bad tasting pills I feel no change different. I have had even less bowel movements than normal. I was expecting to see something some toxins "leaving" my body but there has been nothing. I followed the diet recommendations and it was not a huge departure from my normal diet. The people who see results/weight loss are probably seeing them from the diet change more than anything else. I would never recommend this product and fee I paid [$] for some bad tasting vitamins.

Comments about GNC GNC Preventive Nutrition® Complete Body Cleansing Program:

It was my first time using the product and I am happy with the results. Be mindful that this is not a weight-loss product; it's meant to cleanse your body and I believe that it worked well for this purpose. I learned from an acupuncturist to look at my tongue to see how well my body is - usually, a white-ish, swollen, "hairy-coated" tongue is sign of health problems. My tongue seemed a lot cleaner at the end of the program. I've been eating so badly for so long, though, that I think I'll need to go through a few more cleanses until I "get there". My skin improved during these 7 days too, and I am pretty happy about that.

I used this product to kick-off a weight-loss program, but as I said, I had no hopes that I would lose weight with it, and I didn't. It did help control my cravings, though, and it helped me go through my first week of eating better and exercise. I slept better, but I've been crediting the exercise for that. Either way, I haven't slept this well in a while.

On the first day of the program the morning pills made me REALLY bloated - my tummy was so big you could easily think that I was pregnant. Not gassy or anything, just incredibly bloated. I didn't feel that after the second day or so. It gives you BMs twice a day but without any urgency, and you do feel "cleaner" after. I also peed way more than usual.

I used cleanses before and this was better than what I've tried in the past. Definitely will do again at some point.

Comments about GNC GNC Preventive Nutrition® Complete Body Cleansing Program:

The taste was bad in the AM pack, and the fiber drink did not blend well. But using the fiber drink with some apple or blueberry juice and using the Blender Bottle to blend worked great for taste and for blending. Pills are big so if you cant take a multivitamin with ease this wouldnt be for you.
If you follow a healthy diet and exercise then you will see results.
About 5 pounds for me in one week.

Comments about GNC GNC Preventive Nutrition® Complete Body Cleansing Program:

I was very hopeful that this product would work. After speaking with the salesperson I explained I could not take a product that worked too quickly since I drive an hour one way to work and NO WHERE to stop. I was assured the product was gentle and produced RESULTS. The morning pack was not what you wanted to taste most of the day. The garlic was overwhelming. The fiber mix was easy to mix with any liquid. The evening pack was also a surprise. The RED pill was hot to the taste and after reading the contents...well hot pepper was a key ingredient. I guess I would have to say this did not give me the results I was after. Most days I was still bloated and very gassy (BAD). When I was able to "go" there was more waste but not more times a day as if it was cleaning out your system. I did not follow the STRICT diet mainly becuase I rarely eat fish never salmon and you can afford all the special items in the menu. I did stick to mostly soy products like milk, yogurt, rice cakes and lots and lots of nuts, seeds and dried fruit. To repeat when I was able to go there was more than usual but when you're eating mostly fiber products it's to be expected I got what I paid for but hoped for more. Good luck it may work better for you.

Comments about GNC GNC Preventive Nutrition® Complete Body Cleansing Program:

I have to say I went to GNC looking for a cleanse.. I specified that I was not at all interested in the Kardashian Cleanse and was looking for something Organic or at the very least Natural as I live a Natural/Organic lifestyle (only buy organic meat, eggs, soy, cheese ect) occasionally if I have to buy lettuce and can not find the organic kind, I buy it.

Day 1- Craved carbs and coffee- tough day but got through it
Day 2- Pain- figured out it was due to not drinking enough water
Day 3-7 was fine nothing really to complain about

I lost about 11 lbs and tomorrow is my last day (day 7)

The diet was awesome it was easy to do. If you take this though the best advice I can give you is DRINK LOTS OF WATER OR YOU WILL BE IN LOTS OF PAIN... I was very close to crying from the pain.

Other cons- I had to eat something before taking the AM Packet- it says not to, but it was another factor in cramping.. after taking it with breakfast I was fine.

One more issue with the AM Packet... there must be a funky almost garlic something in it and it repeats on you... another reason to eat with it or keep something close to you to drink (i did water and lemon) to combat the flavor... its really gross and I love garlic.

I was wondering if I could do another cycle immediately as I really am impressed with the results. I had purchased one for my boyfriend and he is not interested in taking it at all... I really am considering doing it back to back and will talk to a GNC rep tomorrow.

If you stick with the plan you will see results... at least I did... and the results were all over my body. I love it!

Would take it again!!

I am worse off then when I started.

Comments about GNC GNC Preventive Nutrition® Complete Body Cleansing Program:

Just finished. Yesterday was my final day in the 7 day Program. Weighed in this morning and am down 8 lbs!!! That is over 1 lb a day. I was a heavy coffee & soda drinker and per the instructions of no caffeine, cut them out cold turkey! Drank only water, green tea and a small amount of milk. TMI~ but had 1-2 bowel movements a day and one again this morning. Which, for me is a big change from every 2-3 days!

This is the 2nd time I have done this program and it has produced each time. This time, I followed the Program very closely, but did have a few nights that I 'slurged' on a treat. (Peanut Butter cookie...mmmmmm)

The only con is the a.m. pack has some funky herbs in it and leaves an icky taste in your mouth, kinda like you just ate a grlicky dish.

This has definately kicked off my weight loss program and motivated me greatly!!!

Comments about GNC GNC Preventive Nutrition® Complete Body Cleansing Program:

I i exercise regularly and i am a pretty healthy eater so the diet program they provided pretty much reflected the diet i already follow. the only thing i had to cut out was dairy. do NOT eat dairy, i "accidentally" drank a glass of milk and it gave me really bad gas pains. but if you follow to the diet, it works. the first day i saw no results. the power fiber/probiotic thing you drink didn't taste that bad and i found it was easier just to mix it in a 12oz bottle of water or juice. i would open the container of juice, take a couple sips, then empty the contents of the packet into the bottle. then id screw the cap back on and shake it up. you cant taste it if you use enough juice/or water, although the label says to only use 4-6oz of liquid, i used 12-24. the second-7th day i had big poops. not diarrhea. which was nice because i thought i would be on the toilet all week. but the poops were huge. like sticking out of the toilet huge so you might have to flush twice. i weighed 138 when i started and now i weigh 135. so i lost a little weight but it was more to jump start your diet. it wasnt as dramatic as i thought it would be. i dont know why the sales guy recommended this one but it was simple to take and i did poop a lot so i guess it worked. just pills and powder drink with breakfast, and pills with dinner. i dont have trouble swallowing big pills but if you do it might be a problem. i dont have trouble following a strict diet but if you do it might be hard. so yeah. it was fine for me but if you are addicted to junk food and have trouble swallowing pills you should either suck it up and do this for 7 days or figure out something else.

I am a young healthy woman who has suffered from irregularity for a long time. I have gone to numerous doctors with no hope of finding an answer. I have already gone 5 days without almost any bowel movement so I thought I would purchase this kit to make things move along. I am on the closing end of day three and no bowel movement yet. Now this will be 8 days since bowel movement. I have more gas, more cramping but don't feel like I need to go to the bathroom. I am not blaming my problems on this product but it actually made me feel worse. Everyone is different and I would recommend everyone do a clease but I don't recommend this product. I will be taking this back tomorrow if nothing happens.

Comments about GNC GNC Preventive Nutrition® Complete Body Cleansing Program:

Overall: I'm starting a diet program and the GNC sales rep encouraged me to take this cleanse as a good way to start. He warned me that it was a cleanse and thus my body wouldn't act totally normal during the week... If you are washing the mud off your your car the process isn't really clean, but in the end you have a clean car. This is what I feel like I went through the week of the cleanse.

Why I didn't give it five stars: I wasn't informed that there was a strict diet that I would have to follow in conjunction with this cleanse. It makes sense that eating right is apart of a body cleanse but I wasn't told this upfront.

End result: I didn't follow the strict diet but instead followed the "eat this/avoid that" sheet and kept my calories to about 1500 per day. I had one night where my stomach was really upset but this was after I ate some dairy for dinner (on the "avoid" list... so I'm guessing that was the reason). I walked about 30 minutes everyday for the week and in the end lost about 8 lbs.

Recommendation: I feel like the cleanse worked pretty well. I went into the week craving nachos and meat lovers pizza... After the week I experienced what my healthy friends always say when they talk about how those foods just make them feel "bleh" I am craving more healthy food and feel like I am on the right track toward a more healthy living.

You have to be dedicated to eating healthy and drinking lots of fluids. Don't plan to do this around a holiday, you will have to stay away from all the good food!

Comments about GNC GNC Preventive Nutrition® Complete Body Cleansing Program:

I researched this product online before I went to the local store to get the product. I talked to the person working there and he told me that he had done the cleanse before and he liked the cleanse. He also told me that there were dietary suggestions and so long I didn't, say, eat fast food everyday, I would be fine and he said that I should drink lots of water (he suggested 96 oz). While I have not been following the dietary suggestions (I have been doing a weight loss plan), this has still worked for me. Everything is labeled clearly and easy to use. I read the reviews in which some folks did not like the powder. The powder is not bad at all! This is how I handled the powder: I poured some juice into an empty water bottle, then, I poured the powder in it, I shook the bottle and the powder dissolved and poured the rest of my juice in the bottle and let it sit so that it could dissolve completely. I could not taste the powder. I did experience some gas yesterday (today is my 3rd day); but, I drank some more water and it went away. In my opinion, this is a good product it is easy to use, there are little side effects and, so far, I have lost 3 lbs and my tummy is flatter. This is a great way to jumpstart a diet plan or to get that boost when you hit a plateau in your weight loss regimen.

Comments about GNC GNC Preventive Nutrition® Complete Body Cleansing Program:

In general the powder mix was a little difficult to fully dissolve. I drank it in high pulp OJ and could hardly tell the difference though. Also, some of the pills were pretty huge. Everybody's bodies are different and will likely react differently to these pills and drinks - This is what I got out of this mix. I had rough garlic burps and taste in the mornings, and sometimes it would make me a little nauseous. I had to change my diet to completely cut out fatty foods, carbos, and dairy. When I ate the "bad" foods, I got HORRIBLE gas. And if I couldn't release the gas when needed, I got bad belly pain and rumbles. Drink LOTS of water! It is not a good idea to drink alcohol or caffeinated beverages while taking these. The mix gives you a really good natural energy boost anyway. There was no colon flush with these, but it did get me more regular. I also feel like I have less body aches, swelling, and bloating after taking these. My skin feels softer too. Overall, I feel better, but it wasn't as drastic as I hoped. Time will tell if this "jump starts" my weight loss, but I didn't lose any pounds simply by taking the mix.

Comments about GNC GNC Preventive Nutrition® Complete Body Cleansing Program:

The 7 Day Complete Body Cleansing system is relatively easy to use. One fiber shake with breakfast (mixed with juice or water) and 2 packs of pills... one AM... and one PM.

I am on day 4 right now... and I literally tossed my cookies the very first day I took the AM pack of vitamins. There is a pepper-y/garlic-y/spicy pill in there... that kind of went down hard, and got stuck in my throat for a split second... and the taste was just dreadful. BLECH! I threw everything up. The fiber shake (which I was using to wash down the pills... kill 2 birds with one stone theory) and the pills! I guess it was more of a dry heave... but stuff came up my throat. And I forced it back down. I dread taking this every... single... day... but I bought it... so I am going to finish it. I have a "Blender Bottle" that I use with the fiber mix... and it still, despite how HARD or FAST I shake it... is clumpy and frothy. Very hard to go down. I have mixed it with Simply Apple, Simply Orange, Lipton Cold Brew Black Tea, and Water... and my favorite thus far is the black tea.

As far as results go... I have been pretty frequent as far as bowel movements go. They are a little more airy and light, but I am not by any means constipated (as per other reviewers)I notice an increase in urination... but I chalk that up to the increase in H20 intake. I like the food list that it gives you. It does give you a whole "Meal Plan" to follow... to the 'T'.... but I am not. I just eat foods on the "Good List". I havent cheated thus far. And have not had a single thing on the bad list!

I have had no ill side effects. I notice right before I take my PM pills... I do get a little rumbly in the tummy... but nothing abnoxious. I have had some sinus pressure, and a kind of ongoing/lingering headache... very mild... since I started. But, it also just so happens all the little kids I babysit are sick too with pneumonia and neon green boogers and a devils cough. LOL. So, I dont know who is the culprit.

I am not one to write reviews... but as far as this product goes... I am on day 4, and have seen no *Superman-esque* changes. But, in its defense.. it is an INTERNAL body cleanser, so I probably wont. I wrote this review mainly to attest to the HORRIBLE AM PILLS AND FIBER SHAKE! I hate... every... single... morning I have to take those! Only 3 more days! Thank god!

I personally wont be buying this again... but to each their own. Everything is worth a shot at least once.

Comments about GNC GNC Preventive Nutrition® Complete Body Cleansing Program:

I am hypo-thyroid and take T3 & T4 replacements. I entered the store only looking for a soy-free protein drink to replace two meals a day in an effort to lose weight (those of us on thryoid meds must watch soy intake, as it interferes with the absorption of the meds). After having extensive conversation with the employee about my situation, and identifying a soy-free protein powder, I then saw the 7 day cleanse and asked if that would be a good idea due to my bad eating habits, and wanting to jumpstart my weight loss. Of course the answer was yes and he named all of the good benefits of it. So I bought that too, and when I got home I opened the box and got familiar with the regimen. I took the cleanse for two days while following a 1,200 calorie per day diet, and during that two days I experienced pretty bad all day headaches. On the night of day two, I actually READ the info that comes with it, and was kinda ticked off to see that there are some pretty strict food lists that the employee failed to mention to me. The part that REALLY honked me off was that SOY was recommended most of all as part of this cleanse. After having this extensive conversation with the employee, like at least 20 minutes, he turned me onto a program that SOY was included. NOT COOL. So I decided, the night of day two, to stop the cleanse - it was not going to work for me with these recommended foods, and I was feeling bad anyway. Day three (today), I developed the WORST STOMACH ACHE at about 11am while at work, and felt like I wanted to go to the bathroom really bad to get it (the pain) out, though it did not hit me urgently. I went twice and actually kind of had to prompt it, but when prompted it was pure liquid. My stomach continued to hurt something fierce even after that, causing me to leave work to come home and lay down. Then the headache started back up and I just felt BAD. Here it is 4.5 hours later and I am still feeling kinda bad. Bottom line - if you are hypo-thryoid and on meds, DO NOT USE THIS PRODUCT, as you will not be able to follow the recommended foods, and doing so will slow or totally block your meds from being absorbed. I do not know if the headaches or stomach ache were from not being able to eat those foods, but it was a really bad experience for me, and I will be seeking a refund due to the fact it was recommended for me personally by the employee that KNEW I could not have SOY. Employees need better training on the products they are selling.

Comments about GNC GNC Preventive Nutrition® Complete Body Cleansing Program:

This product was awful. Today was my last day on the program and I totally agree with jawhyme's review. I was sooo bloated and constipated the entire time. I must of had a good bowel movement twice throughout the 7 days. My stomach hurt so bad all I wanted to do was either fart or have a bowel movment but nothing would happen when I felt like I really needed to go. On top of that my stomach was so full of air from the bloating that it would make these embarassing sounds while I was at work, as if my stomach was breaking down, but nothing would come out. It was absolutely horrible.. I continued the seven days, but please don't waste your money. I was advised by a GNC representative that this was the best and I did my own research prior to buying and I definitely should have taken the advice offered on here instead of listening to the GNC rep. I lost 2lbs, but was too bloated to tell if it was actual weight lost. DON'T WASTE YOUR MONEY!

Comments about GNC GNC Preventive Nutrition® Complete Body Cleansing Program:

I chose this product after doing some research. It was also used by the Salesperson at GNC and she said it was her favorite. She uses it every 2-3 months. She warned me that people often come in to say it's not working because they expect to be having constant bowel movements but the product works over time. This is one reason that I chose this particular cleansing system. I wasn't doing it for weight loss but I ended up losing 7lbs by the end of the 7 days. My digestive system already seems to be much better. Overall it really helps you focus on what you are putting into your body and you can use it as a tool to teach yourself how to eat healthier to keep you body in good shape. This definitely surpassed my expectations and I have been recommending it to everyone. I'm sure results will differ depending on the person. The drink really wasn't that bad- it's actually is pretty sweet and fruity for a fiber drink, it's just a little hard to mix. I drank it with just water and used a straw, but you are allowed to drink it with juice if you wanted. It's only 7 days- it's really not that hard to stick to at all.

Comments about GNC GNC Preventive Nutrition® Complete Body Cleansing Program:

This is my first time trying this or any product of this type. It's a 7 day kit so I didn't expect results day 1 or 2. Although it is now day 3 and I'm starting to notice a difference in my bowel movements. I don't want to get too graphic, but lets just say things I haven't eaten in a while are in my stool. The odor is different during bowel movements and when passing gas, which is an indicator of cleansing (so I was told). I like the fact that I'm not rushing to the restroom like I would with a laxitive, but I am waiting for a grand finale! Another positive is; todays bowel movement was completely different in the amount. I weighed myself before and after and it alone was a 2.8 lbs difference. If this continues, then I will change my review to 5 stars!!! I have been on a lean cuisine diet before starting the kit and I'm still on it. I'm not following the diet on the kit. It is basically the same with less calorie intake and more fiber. So far looking good. If no results are shown on the scale by day 5, I will return the product.

Comments about GNC GNC Preventive Nutrition® Complete Body Cleansing Program:

I and my husband tried this kit and I lost 3 pounds and my husband lost 6 pounds. The one-week menu was very healthy and different. I wasn't expecting to lose a lot of weight, this is just a cleansing product. If you look at the daily menu, you are consuming min 1500 calorie, if you don't exercise you will not be able to lose.
Pros:
- You eat healthy
- Lose weight
- Clean your body (I am not sure how much it cleans)
- We were introduced with different food

Cons:
- Hard to prepare with busy work schedule
- Big pills, hard to swallow
- Same food menu and same amount of calorie for man and women. It was too much food for me but not enough for my husband.
- It is not a miracle

Overall, we liked it.

The powder drink was horrible with many lumps in it. The pills were extremely large and required lots of liquid to go down. I would not recommend this product to anyone. It was a waste of money.

I also have been taking doctor prescribed pain medication that has blocked me up and this product has worked wonders for me!!!!! i recommend this product for people that are bad off and really need something to get them to feel normal. I see a bunch of bad reviews and all i can say is THAT SUCKS FOR THEM!!!!!!!!!! cause this product worked wonders for me!!!!!!!!!!

I have been losing 2 pounds a week without this product. I see no results what so ever, other than major bloating and being uncomfortable, running to the bathroom just to not go. I was almost constipated. and I was expecting the opposite. I am very disappointed. I will not try this again and I wouldn't recommend it to anyone. I am very disappointed, what works out there? I need just a boost???

Pretty much the same as most comments here. Salesperson said "this is the best" even after I told him all reviews were bad. He shook his head and said not true. So I tried it. No results. Didn't feel any different except more constipated and bloated than before trying. Actually had less bowel movements than before using this. Also had serious gas problems. It was pretty easy to use. Had odd-tasting belching after taking the AM packet. Kind of gingery/spicy. Not too pleasant. I will be returning the box back to the store tomorrow for a refund and possibly trying the acai power berry product.

Took this product for the full week. The first 4-5 days I had horrible diarrhea. I lost no weight, actually gained a bit even following a healthy diet. After 4 days, I had reduced hearing ability in one ear and a constant ringing. Went to see a doctor who told me that an ingredient in the cleanse program was the culprit. Not a good experience.

Comments about GNC GNC Preventive Nutrition® Complete Body Cleansing Program:

Normally i am one not to run and write a review but given the fact I bought this yesterday and i am returning it tonight i HAD to write one. I bought this yesterday since two people in the store used it and swore by it. Ive never done a detox or cleanse before but after one day of being on this i had the WORST, and i mean THE WORST gas pains of my life. It literally left me doubled over where i had to spend my lunch hour at work buying Gas-X in [...]pharmacy. Someone i work with who has done a cleanse before says that is the process of whats supposed to happen. Which im guessing in translation means your body has to build up everything before its released. Even if that is so, i won't be on it another day to find out if the end result is worth it because if i had to deal with another day of this pain, i would kill myself. Not to mention it doesnt tell you any side effects. It also comes with a 7 day meal plan which made me think if i dont follow it taking this horrible stuff alone wont do anything. So my final words of advice for anyone that wants to cleanse- get yourself some bran, green tea, and some other holistic stuff that will not give you horrible pain.

Comments about GNC GNC Preventive Nutrition® Complete Body Cleansing Program:

My husband and I were going to try a colon cleans and the guy at GNC recommended this "whole body cleans" instead since it focuses on entire body. We followed the diet and took all of the pills exactly like directed to. On day 6 of 7 we decided to stop so that we would have a portion to return for a refund since neither of us was really seeing results. We are average people, he is 230 lbs 5 ft 9. I am 137 lbs 5 ft 1. Neither of us experienced any more bowel movements, In fact it did the opposite for him and backed him up a little. This is not a weight loss product so I was not too disappointed that we lost no weight, but we were both exercised out 45 minutes 4 of the 6 days we used the product. I did feel that I had a little more energy, but it could have been the low calorie diet and exercise. The worst part is the powder you mix with your morning juice is terrible! I gagged each time. It does not mix well and gives powdered lumps in your drink..yuck!

Comments about GNC GNC Preventive Nutrition® Complete Body Cleansing Program:

I wanted to do a whole body cleanse because I have been on a diet for 8 weeks and only have 7 more pounds to lose before I reach my goal weight of 110lbs. I wanted to give my body a boost. I went to GNC and the guy said this was the best one, so I took it home. Unfortunately, I had horrible side effects. I got horrible cramps, horrible headaches, I had bad gas (very gross I know) and always felt like I needed to use the bathroom but then when I got there, only had gas (very gross again, I know). I also got very hot and it made me feel feverish, and I was also severly nausous to the point where I had to lay down when all I wanted to do was get up and get in the car to return this junk. I hope other people did not have such a horrible result as I did. I only took the product for two days and I am returning it as soon as I am able to stand without feeling like I am going to throw up. =(

Comments about GNC GNC Preventive Nutrition® Complete Body Cleansing Program:

Store employee at GNC suggested this product after I told him that for a year I have been steadly losing weight (proper eating/exercise) but that I have "stalled" with my progress. I wanted a thermogenic fat burner but he suggested I cleanse my body out first...maybe my body was just getting used to what I was doing...My only concern was cramping from bowel movements but it was very relaxed and mild...alot of flagulence but no painful stomach cramps!! I did forget some evenings to take the pill packet but the results were still realistic and I was able to see a difference in my bloated stomach. I also began to slowly see results on the scale over the next month. So apparently, I did need to "jazz" my body up, it must have gotten bored with me...Again, I'm not a huge fan of cleansers, I eat a diet of whole grains daily but sometimes your body just needs a "kick" in the butt!!! Also, I didn't follow the diet plan that came with the kit...I did my own thing. but don't be STUPID and think your going to be thin all of a sudden!!!

Ive used this product on 2 different occasions in a 2 year period. Im not real sure on some of the comments about it making you gain weight!? Of course its alot of steps to take just takes a little push, if you need it to follow through with the product. It does clean you out for sure and i always feel better after a week has passed in taking the product. Maybe it acts different with some people but eating habits and lifestyle will have different affects. Im not a know it all ,just wanted to rate a product i know is good in the results ive achieved! Is it going to make you drop weight without diet NO! Yes its alot of steps in taking the product.

Comments about GNC GNC Preventive Nutrition® Complete Body Cleansing Program:

Before our wedding last yr me and hubby need to take off just a few lbs each, ot alot, but wedding dresses fit snuggly and I had gained about 5 lbs and wanted to be a bit more comfy he also had put on about 5 lbs and wanted to make sure the tux fit correctly. We didn't exspect to loose alot of weight, we more so exspected to loose some water weight and have our stomachs be a little flatter from the loss of all that junk that buils up in your colon. We had read such wonderful about colon cleansing we felt like this would be a good way to do things since we were super busy, didn't really have time to exercise and needed our stomachs a little flatter, plus all the good health benefits. We went to our local GNC,we explained that as we were busy and didn't always have time to prepaire proper meals with our wedding just a few weeks away that we wanted a system that had the least dietary requirements, some would be ok, but we couldn't go liquid or do alot of the other diets as we just didn't have time. The lady promised us that this had NO dietary restrictions, I thought was weird figured there would be a few, she also sold us on the whole body cleanse instead of just the colon cleanse, speaking of the great beenfits , how it would cleans our colon , our blood, everything that needs cleansing and we would not only have our stomachs a slight bit flatter but feel so much better, she also made a big deal about how there was no need to buy the really exspensive ones , the GNC brand would be just as good ( although exspensive enough).
The first thing I noticed when we openeded the boxes is that it actually had very strict dietary "suggestions", if you read it throuly it basically said not to exspect any real results unless you followed there meal planner, should have taken it back,but the lady had spoken so well of it and it was cheaper, not only did I have to restock my kitchen ( we eat pretty healthy but this was STRICT), but the meals were pretty time consuming to prepair, well except for breakfast wich you had few choices and barely anything to eat, but the meals were so healthy I though we'd atleast loose a few lbs off that.
We had several pills to take at different times of the day and a pretty basty tasting drink mix in the morning.I t was also very inconveineint because as I said a few weeks before our wedding, we had no time, we were runnign between work and final arrangements, the diet was so strict though I didn't even feel comfortable stopping at a fast food place for a salad afraid it would be the wrong veggies or the dressing would be wrong so every time I was out and got hungry I had to drive home, sometimes from across town, I told myself it was worth it to be more comfy in that fitted dress, to look my best on our day. We both noticed after a few days that although we followed the meal planner to a T and were eating slightly smaller portions than normal we were gaining weight, I thought it may be water weight and that perhaps that wa part of the cleansing and it would flush out soon. NO dice

Me and H both gained around 10lb from this system. Neigther of us noticed any change in our health, bowel movements ( except that we were have LESS of them, the amount and whatnot did not change), we did not feel much more energized, and when we did I attribute that to all the fresh fruit and veggies we ate for snacks because these were quick short lasting burst of energy.
Thank God I was able to rush order an AB shaper, those things work, honestly did not have the time to use it, but I no longer fit into my wedding dress, when trying it on at the shop last minute to finally decide on my veil ( I couldn't decide till about a week before, they were all 2 nice) the ladies at could not zip the dress all the way up. Thank god for the ab shaper and plan ol midol ( it has a water pill) I was able to get the dress zipped for the big day.

This product and sales rep, even after explaining in detail what we were looking for why, our time limits ect, ect, well they almost ruined my wedding, what if I had not been able to drop the extra inches in a little over a week that this product gave me? I did not have money to buy a brand new wedding dress and it's not the sort of thing you can just return, nor was there time to have the dress let out.
On top of that like I said this product did nothing for our well being we felt no different and sometimes after takeing the pills worse, and the only affect it had on us was weight gain.
Horrible product, cannot imagine why it's still selling.

Comments about GNC GNC Preventive Nutrition® Complete Body Cleansing Program:

I took this product for the prescribed week. That was hard to do in itself. The pills were very large and tasted bad and even burned if stuck in your throat for any amount of time. The am fiber drink tasted horrible, and i've drank plenty of nasty protein shakes in my life. Also, I think that I did fairly well with my food intake. I eat healthy anyway, but the diet they want you on while you're taking this product is almost silly. I stuck to the plan for the week, had a bunch of smelly gas from the pills,and a few bowel movements. I don't feel any different than before I took this product. Who knows what it is your taking. This review is not to be mean or to be a "product hater". I took it for the week and was not impressed at all. Will not purchase again.

For one week while taking this product I got headaches and stomach pains. I didn't have a bowl movement until day 3. This product is useless. Don't waste your time or money!

Comments about GNC GNC Preventive Nutrition® Complete Body Cleansing Program:

This product is very disappointing. I followed the diet completely and worked out 5 days a week. I had no results, not sure why they call this product a cleansing program because there was no cleanse at all. I was talked into be this particular product by the GNC employee, maybe they get some sort of commission. Don't waste your [$]

Comments about GNC GNC Preventive Nutrition® Complete Body Cleansing Program:

I asked the lady there which one was best, naturally she recomeded the store brand. I took it at the same time every day, I ate the way the meal guide said to(not there whole menu,but most)and I did use the bathroom very slightly more than normal...I saw no results. I feel the same, look the same, weigh the same...I was very dissapointed. Maybe I'll try another brand in a few months.

Comments about GNC GNC Preventive Nutrition® Complete Body Cleansing Program:

Very simple to take, however the vitamins taste HORRIBLE and left a bad heartburn feeling. Tasted garlic for several days. I was hoping for some weight loss and an overall "clean" feeling, but this did not prove to do that. I am not sure what or if it did anything. I would not recommend this product.

I finished all seven days of the "cleansing" with no results.I did not follow their meal plan to the T, however i stayed within their bounderies of no processed foods only organic,no dairy only soy or rice based products.I worked out every day and felt way more exhausted than normal.I lost only 1 pound in 7 days, and feel no different.I felt like i wasted my money on this product.I am glad its over with, as i miss my coffee every morning, rather than decaf green tea.The only positive is it is easy to take all the contents of the kit.

Comments about GNC GNC Preventive Nutrition® Complete Body Cleansing Program:

I followed the diet that came with the program as best I could. It wasn't that tough, but I love chicken and veggies. Had a bowl of cereal in the morning, usually bran flakes or shredded wheat.
The program claims to be non-intrusive, but I spent quite a bit of time (for the first 3 or 4 days) in the restroom. It seemed that at some point, my body kinda snapped into gear and I was pretty much back to par by day 5. I noticed I had more energy and just felt better overall. I chose to do this before starting a new workout routine, and I'm glad I did. I think my digestive tract is a little more 'regular' now and that, alone, was worth the price of the product. Would definitely recommend to a friend.

This is possibly the worst supplement I've ever taken. My wife and I got one for each of us and all it did was make us both violently ill. If you want terrible diarrhea and vomiting, you can get the same results from eating raw meat out of a dumpster. And it's a hell of a lot less expensive.

First cleansing product I've used, but after 4 years of cycling products from basic protein to NO's to thermo's I thought it may be a good idea to reset the system. On day 7 and feel 100% better with no more bloat. Very pleased with the product. I experienced none of the repeated bathroom trips that you hear of with lots of cleansing products which is always a plus. Have already and will continue to recommend.

Comments about GNC GNC Preventive Nutrition® Complete Body Cleansing Program:

I am on Day 4 of this product and I am pleased with the results so far. I haven't followed the eating guide but have developed my own using the "good foods". Day three was definitely the turning point as others have indicated. I had more energy and my facial color was better. I was expecting more #2 bathroom visits but everything is normal. I started around 220 and have lost around 3 pounds. I am in relatively good shape and have been working out as normal. I had some sweet cravings the first 2 days but I would eat a clementine and the craving was gone.I will update after I am finished with the detox.

I didn't even bother taking the last day and I feel that it was a complete waste of my time and money

the direstions are easy, it came with this sample diet which was VERY hard to follow!! No diary, only soy milk, no caffiene! I was dying after the first day with a killer headache and starving! For someone that has a busy schedule I need my caffiene and this "sample Diet" included says to avoid caffiene. I have used ballerina tea and have "cleansed" my system out much better than this product and the price for the tea is MUCH cheaper!

Comments about GNC GNC Preventive Nutrition® Complete Body Cleansing Program:

I bought this product looking to debloat and loose a pound or too, but I saw no change at all in anything. I was so sick of taking it that I threw away the last pack (Day 7) because I knew it was useless. I did the SlimQuick cleanse one time, and I can't testify that I lost a lot of weight, but at least my body felt like it was trying to expel something.

Comments about GNC GNC Preventive Nutrition® Complete Body Cleansing Program:

doesn't 'shock' your system, or put you in an 'urgent' need to find a bathroom. after 2 1/2 days i am less bloated, and not sluggish feeling. i lost the recommended diet so i'm not sure i'm eating correctly, i know what gluten free is, fat free of course, i remember the no dairy and fish is ok, is there anything else i can eat for optimum results.

i will use the product every 3 months probably. depends on these results

The product completely slimmed me down I was impressed. its been 4 weeks since I finished the cleanse and I still feel great. only problem was the pills taste awful but you get use to it. I started out at 127lbs after the 7days i was 117 lbs. This cleanse forces you to eat healthy foods which is a plus. If you don't follow the instructions it won't work. FYI Absolutley NO DAIRY!!!!!!!! at all.

Comments about GNC GNC Preventive Nutrition® Complete Body Cleansing Program:

If you are seeking to loose weight, eat fewer calories than what you expend, and eat nutritious and fiber-rich foods.
If you are seeking to "cleanse," go for a run/jog, eat some fiber to move your bowels, and drink plenty of water. Avoid fast food.
Don't waste your money on these supplements. Ask any doctor, they'll tell you the same.

Comments about GNC GNC Preventive Nutrition® Complete Body Cleansing Program:

This kit and the diet plan that accompanied it worked extremely well for me. I have been diagnosed with fatty liver and also have food allergies. I was bloated, tired all the time, and suffered with pain in my liver/gallbladder area. By the second day the pain was gone. This pain had been so bad that I couldn't sleep on my right side. The bloating in my stomach area was gone after the third day. My energy level increased during the entire week and, as other reviewer stated, an added benefit is that I wasn't hungry all the time. The fiber packet that you take with breakfast seemed to really tame hunger pangs. Also the fiber (I mixed it with juice) tasted pretty good and was easy to swallow. Other fiber products I've tried had a strange taste or were hard for me to swallow. I guess the one small con for me was the garlic taste that I would have after taking the morning pills. I will say that I don't feel this is a product for people w/ constipation problems. It produces a much slower, gentle effect on the bowels, which is another reason I liked this kit.

Comments about GNC GNC Preventive Nutrition® Complete Body Cleansing Program:

The fact that it was "gentle" compared to the other brands is why I bought it. I completed it a few days and I was very happy with the results. I didn't lose anyweight that I am aware of however, I am no longer bloated and I don't feel as tired. Cons is that you will be VERY gasey so beware and the AM pills have a garlic taste. Suprised Pros I don't have certain cravings and eat WAY less. You wont have to RUN to the bathroom basically you will go more than normal but no sudden urges to go. The price was great and you only use it for 7days rather than 30. I used it so it will help me kick start my diet program I know I feel tons better just from using it. So I can only hope it will help assist me in kick starting my weight loss.

I followed the instuctions. I had headache for 4 days straight when I took this. It was a throbing headache and I could not function on the 4th day. I thought I was dehydrated, so I drank more water. No help. When I stoped taking these pill on the 5th day, my headache went away. I still have my unused portion and not planning on using them. It's not worth it. This is the 2nd time using a GNC brand cleanser and both did not do it for me.

Comments about GNC GNC Preventive Nutrition® Complete Body Cleansing Program:

I am a vegetarian, so my results may be different from meat eaters, but I found that this product worked great. I followed the meal restrictions VERY CAREFULLY making sure to go gluten free, processed product free etc. It is hard to do, but well worth it. I'd say 90% of my cellulite disappeared (though it comes back when you go back to normal eating). I use this both after I've been ill and before I go on a bikini wearing vacation, and it helps me look and feel GREAT! But I will say that my sister tried it and did not follow the meal restrictions carefully and she got very sick from it, so follow directions and it should work for you!

Comments about GNC GNC Preventive Nutrition® Complete Body Cleansing Program:

I was looking for an overall body cleanses to help jump start me into a healthier eating and fitness program. The 7 days I was on this product, I felt constipated and in the evenings, extremely gassy and bloated. I did not lose any weight considering I was on a very clean diet of fish, fruits and vegetables. You would at least think that a colon cleanse would help you clean out your system literally, but this unfortunately did not happen, but in fact did the opposite. Do not waste your precious time or money on this! You would be better off just changing your diet and purchasing some good vitamins.

I picked this product over the Jillian Detox and the QuickTrim and I'm on day 6 and seem to like it. I'm not sure how much weight I've actually lost but my stomach is less bloated and I feel lighter and more energized. The only issue that I've noticed is that the amount of Fiber in the packet that you mix with water or juice, was too much for my body, so I mixed just half of it. I was feeling stuffed and had quite a bit of gas. I've recommended the product to several friends and hope they like it just as well.

Comments about GNC GNC Preventive Nutrition® Complete Body Cleansing Program:

This is finally a healthy cleanse! I have done this one 4 times now over the past year and a half and I can tell a difference.
Its not all about losing ridiculous amounts of weight in 1 week. Instead it teaches an effective diet that gives the body a break long enough to digest the food we keep putting in. (Also a healthy diet to live by). The best thing is it is based off of natural herbs and supplements, I noticed on other cleanses it was don't eat lose pounds, gain weight back. This one cleans the blood, rejuvenates the liver cells, and detoxes the kidney, all the while helping clean the colon. May not feel the whole process because it is internal and trust me it is working for you on a whole new level! Cons: Feel sick the first couple of days and it is a lot of steps daily.

Comments about GNC GNC Preventive Nutrition® Complete Body Cleansing Program:

Noticed absolutely nothing from this product. No side effects. If you follow the dietary regiment advised, that alone would cleanse your system. I eat pretty healthy and I like to run and lift. This product is structured on a 1500 calorie a day diet. I was dying on day three. Spend your money on something healthy, don't waist it on this.
