Based around Forever Living’s best selling Aloe Vera Gel, this nutritionally-balanced programme is said to allow you to see real results in just nine days! Forever Living C9 Aloe Vera detox is designed to help you meet your weight loss, exercise and lifestyle goals by encouraging you to follow a calorie-controlled diet and exercise regime.
I’ve always struggled with my weight, putting it on was always so much easier than losing it, and this is even more so now I’m getting older 😉
I had never done a detox before and I wasn’t much of an aloe vera fan either so I admit I was a bit skeptical to the Forever living Aloe vera C9 I ‘d been hearing many good things about. But I got so desperate to lose weight for my 40th birthday which conveniently coincides with the new year 😉 so I thought this is it, now is the time, new year, new life new change. I managed to get a good deal on a pack from a friend, so I decided to try it out!
The first day was very difficult and I must admit the aloe gel is an acquired taste that I was hoping I would get used to but nope, I just had to try taking it down as quickly as possible, (back then I had no idea there was much tastier flavoured options). The most challenging part for me as a mum was missing out on the family meals with my children, (but this is only because I chose to have my light evening meal as a lunch because at the time, that’s when I felt I most needed it) Meal time was and has always been a family time of the day where we always catch up on our daily news and events and it just wasn’t the same with me in the corner with my protein milkshake lol. I think if I did it again I would definitely eat my meal with my family this time!
Nevertheless, I managed to get through it, slacking a bit with the exercise routines unless you can count hoovering and cleaning around the house an exercise 😉
By the end of the 9 day detox challenge I had lost a whopping 9lbs and I felt great. I was much more energetic, I have always suffered from an under active thyroid gland that always made me feel lethargic, so that was an amazing improvement. I used to have some knee and joint pain that also vanished and I felt my concentration level had improved. I had already made the intention in starting the keto diet and thought that the aloe detox would be a great boost before starting it. But that’s another post altogether 😉
What is C9?
Clean 9 is a nine-day cleanse (hence the ‘C’ and the ‘9’) which helps to eliminate toxins from your body. For the first two days you don’t eat – apart from very specific vegetable or fruit snacks – but you do take Aloe Vera gel plus a protein shake and other supplements. Then you introduce a small, very healthy meal into your diet for the following seven days which you are supposed to compliment with at least 30 mins exercise routine daily.

I feel that despite my hesitance and skeptical-ism in doing the detox I am extremely happy to have done it, I had never felt better or healthier and I personally feel it was a great start to a new healthier diet and lifestyle. I realise though that not all of us are the same and some take to things easier than others and vise versa. I was just super excited that it worked that well for me because I’m that person that has tried many things that didn’t work or that I couldn’t keep up. I love my food and it plays a big part of my social and family life, so to get into a healthier routine was a great challenge but it’s certainly a much easier one when done together as a family.
If you would like to give the Forever living Aloe vera C9 detox a try, feel free to order yours today from Amazon, this is the one I had, but I must say I would much prefer this one because it’s the chocolate flavoured milkshake and you get the apple & berry aloe vera gel, which I imagine will taste so much better than the normal one. The only advantage of the normal one was that I got to use what I had left in some beauty products and scrubs!!!
I come across this video review on youtube by The helpful mum, and she really did describe it to the T, I completely related to every thing she had to say so I thought it was definitely worth sharing her review here too:
On the plus side, I remembered thinking at the time of forcing myself to drink the aloe vera gel, that it would be so much easier to take it as a pill/capsule, and actually now alhamdulillah they have some halal & vegan friendly ones available for those of us that did want to continue taking a daily supplement for the benefit of our skin & health, you can find them here:
