Rated 5 out of 5 by WeddingGirl I lost 6 pounds and beat cravings
I am getting married in about 6 months and have been struggling to lost weight for my big day. I have tried dieting, but I never stick to it for more than a couple weeks. I would highly recommend the 2 day fast. The shakes actually tasted pretty good. I preferred the chocolate. I lost about 6 pounds. I thought I would gain some back once I started eating real food again, but it was easier to eat healthy and my stomach had shrunk. I actually lost another 2 pounds that week. By the end of the second day, I had no energy at all, but I was expecting that with the very few calories I had consumed. This was a great way to start a new healthy lifestyle. I could see the results immediately. It was a great confidence boost and made me want to continue my new healthy diet. I have stuck to eating healthy. I don't even want junk food anymore.

Rated 2 out of 5 by neeraye Not Effective
I'm a female college student and weight 140 lbs at 5'5". I wanted to shed some pounds before starting hiphop abs. I fasted for one day, then started eating after 2pm on the second day because I was getting painful headaches. I think I lost 1-2 pounds, but I lose that much when I wake up in the morning. Also, when I was doing this, I could not concentrate. If you want to do this, I recommend you do this when you are sure you'll be 100% stress and work free. I know that for me, I won't be doing this again. But the chocolate taste was great.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Jay Lost 12lbs!
I used this product for 2 days as directed on the label. Didn't eat a single thing. Drank a gallon of water each day and that helped A LOT. I started at 220lbs and by the morning of the 3rd day, i was down to 208lbs. i have not been working out everyday and gained some wait back but i'm hovering at around 215lbs now. I also lost about 2 inches on my waist that I HAVE NOT gained back. Very effective, would recommend to anyone.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Godiva I lost a few pounds
But gained it all back within days. I used the product for 4 full days; ate nothing. Worked out mildly during that time. I lost 3 pounds, which was fine. Until all the weight came back. Very disappointing, especially since I have had success with other Beachbody products.

I always have a hard time losing that last 5-10 pounds. This product is great because it gives you that extra boost. It is great to use at the beginning of a new workout program, to loose that last little bit of weight or to get your mind and body refocused. I have used the fast twice now and I recommend it to all my friends!

Rated 1 out of 5 by BlondieSalsera Don't waste your money or health on this product.
I ordered the 2 day fast and tried it on two separate weekends. I followed the directions to a tee... only mixed with water, no food at all, drank more water during the day, etc. I did not loose any weight the first weekend I tried. This past weekend I lost 2 pounds, but was hungry for most of the weekend and did not feel this was a healthy way to jump kick a fitness plan. The shakes come out to about 130 calories and if you consume 3 a day that is not enough for your body to meet it's nutritional needs in a day.
I should have known better as I am an educated woman, but I am down to my last 10 pounds that are hovering on my body so the idea was tempting.
I would not recommend this product to anyone.

Rated 5 out of 5 by LisaNo Light great taste
This is the first powdered drink I've ever been able to handle and I actually really like. When you mix it with water it still has a very thin texture and not thick. I have been using it just once a day as a meal replacement and I've lost 8 lbs in one month. It really does satisfy and I don't feel hungry. I variate taking it in the morning or at lunch. I highly recommend it, especially if you don't like the thickness of some of the other powder mixes...

Rated 5 out of 5 by Red Loved this!
I had nothing to eat for 2 days and the only thing I had to drink or water, 2 cups of juice and 5 Beachbody fasting shakes (which tasted A LOT better than I thought they would)....and I lost a grand total of 6 lbs! YEPPIE! They said to expect moodiness and slugginess. But day 1 was okay for me. I even went on 2 light jogs around the "ponds" here at the apartment complex. However, day 2, that was a little harder. I woke up HUNGER! I wanted FOOD! But I knew I could do it, and I did, I held off my cravings for food. However, I really didn't have much energy or any motivation to actually do anything on day 2. In fact, I just pretty much slept and laid around the house most of the day. (it helped that it was windy and looking bad outside) and though I didn't experience any moodiness all day Tuesday and most of Wednesday, I did have a semi-break down Wednesday night. But it was okay, husband was actually surprised I hadn't had more moodiness. So all in all, I think that it was a good experience and one I think I might repeat about every month or so. :)

Rated 1 out of 5 by Insanity Lover Didn't work for me.
I was excited to get this product in order to get rid of those stubborn couple of pounds from being pregnant. Keep in mind I have done P90X once and Insanity 4 times. I did not think that it worked at all and I was miserably starving the whole time. The only plus was that the taste was actually much better than I expected. But I didn't loose anything or feel better and if you want to do a fast just for the sake of it, I say get a $3 jar of chocolate ovaltine and use that.
