Rated 4 out of 5 by Christie A little tough to stick to... but it works!
I bought this to kick-off my first month with Shakeology. After losing 20lbs, I've been stuck at 153ish unable to get below 150. I ended up using the 2 day fast for 3 days (by dinner time on the 1st day I was STARVING and I caved, eating a few snacks and then a lean cuisine meal... so I knew I needed to start over and be more disciplined). So, that's the first good news, there's enough in one container for you to use the product for three days, if need be. Anyways, I decided after failing the first day to use soy milk instead of water when mixing the 2 day fast, just to make it a little thicker and a little more filling. I had the chocolate fast, and it was delicious with the soy milk!! I was really strict on day 2, and then on my 3rd day I allowed myself a few very small snacks. I had a packet of fruit snacks and a few veggies. I lost a total of 8 pounds over those three days, bringing myself down to 145lbs!!! I gained back 3lbs of it right away (even though I exercise everyday and eat very healthy), but that's to be expected. And still, that's 5lbs of weight loss which is pretty dang good! A good friend of mine who studies nutrition gave me a tip for eating the first day once you come off the fast: drink a lot of water that morning before you eat anything, then eat a yogurt or some oatmeal (something easily digestible) 30-45 minutes before you eat some "real" food... this will help prevent you from gaining back your losses immediately since fasting actually causes your body to create more cells for storing fat. Now I'm using Shakeology and loving it! Thanks beachbody!

I lost 11 pounds in two days using this product. I used water instead of milk and chose not to use the snack. My wife lost 8 and my step-daughter lost 6. If you stick to the plan it will shed no less than 4 pounds. Great product.

Rated 4 out of 5 by LJ Worked for me
I have been consistently exercising and eating pretty good for months now with no real dramatic results, obviously very discouraging. So, I bought the 2 day chocolate cleanse and loved it. The first day I was down 3 pounds. I had a minor headache (I think from no caffeine) but, it was manageable and my energy still remained. At the end of the 2nd day I was down 5.5 lbs, still feeling fine. I drank water in between shakes and still completed my exercise routine with no problems. I went from 137.5lbs to 132lbs. I recommend this product, definitely.

Rated 5 out of 5 by cookie This product does work
Ok I tried this 2-day fast and it was excellent. I started it during the week with no problem. I had plenty of energy with this supplement. Day one was a challenge but in between drinking this supplement I drank 20 oz of water with fresh lemon squeezed in it. When I drank the supplement I took slow sipps to make it last at least a half hour the time it would take me to have a sit down meal. My start weight was 213 on the morning of the third day my weight was 208 I was shocked that I had lost 5lbs. I would recommend this 2-day to anyone who needs a jump start it does work.

I took this over the weekend (Saturday and Sunday) best thing to do for fasting.
I didn't see any differences in my belly. The taste was great. I lost only
2 lbs. I was hoping for more. I weight 143 lbs went to 141 lbs. I gained a little bit of energy. I used to sleep a lot everyday and now its less. I'm happy for that! :-)

Rated 2 out of 5 by FitChic88 Didnt work for me
I actually gained weight instead of losing any, by the last meal on day 2 I had dinner because I could tell it wasnt working. Disappointed by gaining 4 lbs but I recommed this product because I did the fast two weeks ago and I do still feel fuller quicker. So it has helped by that factor of helping me eat less by feeling fuller faster.

I was just starting out my Insanity program and wanted a head start on weight loss. I thought I'd give this a try and wow I was impressed! I'm usually a crazy binge eater but I was able to do it! I lost SEVEN pounds! I felt great and could see a difference in my stomach. I was even able to keep it off. Definitely worth it!

The Chocolate flavor is great. No chalky after taste or something you feel like you have to choke down quickly because it tastes awful. I could only do the fast for 1 day. I am a RN and a mother of a 4 year old and a 2 1/2 year old, so there is no resting for me at all no matter what day it is. By the end of day 1, I had a headache and felt better after eating an apple. I have been working out and watching my portion control for 4+weeks and could not drop any pounds. After only doing this fast for one day, I dropped 3 lbs. I hope have broken my plateau and boosted my metabolism. I will definitely do this again, but can only do it one day at a time. I would collapse by the end of day 2 if I completed the 2 day fast. Thanks again Beachbody!! I love your products.
