I am about 14 hours out from starting the FatBlaster 2 day Coconut Detox and I thought I would start with where I’m at going in to help me gauge my reactions at the end.
Today has been spent mentally preparing myself to start this detox tomorrow morning because I have done a bit of half-baked detoxing previously and it’s gotten me nowhere. I think this is largely because I haven’t actually committed myself to doing it properly, I didn’t cut coffee and I did cheat quite a bit. That is not going to happen this time; I am determined that I am going to follow this detox plan completely so that I can properly gauge the effects.
So today I have been thinking ahead to how this is all going to play out. I have opted to do the detox during the week, because if I’m at home that’s when I’m most likely to snack. On the whole it’s not the lack of snacks that has me concerned, it isn’t even the fact that I won’t eat for 2 days.
What is really concerning me about this 2 day Detox Plan is the 48 hours without coffee, that’s going to be the hard part. I am struggling with even the idea of 2 whole days without coffee so it will certainly test my willpower.
I woke up extra hungry for some reason and was a little concerned this was going to be beyond me. 20 min Free Step on the Wii and it was time to make up my first serve. I would be lying if I said I wasn’t concerned about the flavour but it was a totally unfounded concern. I really enjoyed the taste of the coconut detox.
Drinking it slowly and spaced over hours took conscious thought but worked quite well if I made sure to drink lots of water in between.
Resisting food was easier than I thought it would be, as long as my water bottle was always within reach and I managed about 12 glasses of water throughout the day which is quite good for me. I did find that my energy didn’t last as long, meaning I required an earlier night than usual but that could also be a result of the very late nights leading up to the detox and the lack of late evening snacks to keep me awake.
Again I woke up quite hungry but 2 glasses of water to start the day before I even headed out of the house helped that. I managed to beat my water consumption and drank 14 glasses of water. Energy levels were up during the day but still didn’t last me through to a late night – again quite possibly due to the lack of snacks.
Over the course of my two day detox I drank close to my normal weekly water intake which is fabulous and will hopefully help me to bring up my average consumption.
The flavour and consistency was a very pleasant surprise. Alongside the coconut flavour is pineapple creating almost a virgin pina colada which, though a little different for breakfast, is certainly pleasing to the palate. The consistency from the bottle is quite thick and almost syrupy so once you add water it is still quite a thick liquid almost like the syrup in tinned fruit.
2 day detox and 2 kgs lost made me a very happy detoxer and I would definitely use this again.
Now for some information about the FatBlaster Coconut Detox 2 Day Plan because there’s more to it all than just my personal experience.
Coconut is an extremely beneficial product to the body with its benefits only now being fully discovered. Coconut is considered a superfood. Coconut water is taken from the young coconut and is virtually fat free and loaded with electrolytes to cleanse the body. Mature coconuts are the source of MCT’s (fatty acids) to help you feel fuller and kick start the metabolism.
Other important ingredients are Acai Berry which are high in antioxidants and good for clearing toxins from the body, and Goji Berry which are also high in antioxidants that help reduce free radical damage.
Then there’s the apple and pineapple concentrates that add to the pleasant flavour which make the detox easy to drink.
Strenuous exercise is advised against, which would be because of the extremely low level of calories you are putting in your body through the detox but 30 mins light exercise daily is recommended.
The website also offers some light recipes for those who feel they need to eat something throughout the detox.
The FatBlaster Coconut Detox is available in supermarkets and pharmacies nationally with an RRP of $39.99.

My blurb went missing… so now I have to bring you a new one. One that is a little broader too.
I devour books, vampires and supernatural creatures are my genre of choice but over the past couple of years I have broadened my horizons considerably.
I inhale music, hair metal that satisfies my inner bogan is where my musical passion lies, but again I’ve been exposed to lots of different music I wouldn’t normally listen to and have broadened those horizons also.
In a nutshell – I love to write! I love interacting with a diverse range of artists to bring you interviews.
Perhaps we were perfect before – I LOVE WORDS! Reading, writing, speaking, listening – if it’s got words I’m there!
