Clean 9 Forever Program

I have always been a healthy eater ever since I was young, eating lots of vegetables and fruit.  As I got older I started eating more and started getting bigger and starting to feel uncomfortable in my own body about the way I looked and felt about myself.  Been quite short (4ft 11″) it was starting to show more on my thighs and waist than anywhere else.  It made me realise more when I was going up in clothes sizes that I need to do something and soon.

One day me and my friend were talking at work and she told me that she runs her own little forever group so we were discussing it all in depth about the pros and cons of the C9 then introduced me to the Forever Clean 9, it is a little on the expensive side at £108 but it is so worth it.  I have done and completed the C9 twice now and have enjoyed every part of doing it even though it is tough.  It was very helpful to know that my friend had done the clean 9 as well, so I could discuss things with her and discuss tips and advice.

Check out Forever living and you can also contact my friend to discuss furthur at Facebook, or for fantastic exclusive offers just quote ‘Kim20’.

How does the C9 works?

Days 1 & 2 –  Unfortuantly you can’t eat on the first two days, You take supplements, Aloe Vera Gel, 1 fibre sachet, 1 Shake (Chocolate/Vanilla) a day and plenty of water through the days along with any of your free foods such as tomatoes, cucumber, Spring onions, lettuce and plenty of fruit too grapes, apples, strawberries and blueberries (see booklets for more).

Days 3 – 9 – You take the same as days 1&2 with supplements, Aloe Vera Gel & can now have 2 shakes (1 at breakfast and either one at lunch or tea) and 1 meal up to 600 calories (Lunch/Dinner).  So say you have a shake at lunch you eat your 600 calorie meal at night or you can switch it round and have your meal at lunch time and your shake at tea time whatever works best for you and your lifestyle.

The benefits of doing the C9 are amazing, it helps in many different ways as it extracts and cleanses your body from the inside.  It gives you more energy, makes you less tired and stops that bloaty feeling.  I have tried several diets before from weight Watchers, Special K and Slim fast and nothing was as effective as the Forever cleanse.  I would recomend this to anyone that would like to try and lose weight and tone up.

My weight lose was around 1 stone in 9 days plus losing inches for different parts of my body, I felt great in myself and was really pleased with the results I got.

A family Tradition – Brandy Truffles

Every year there is a conversation started around the beginning of December about will my mum be making her amazing truffles this year,  Well of course the answer is always yes.  They have become a real hit with all our family and friends and they are usually devoured in minutes.

I couldn’t even tell you how or when it even started but I know something it is one of the best thing my mum has started and I think alot of family and friends will agree too.  Since moving out last year I decided I would start making them as well because they are quite easy to make. So I thought I would kindly share the recipe with you all below too.

What you will need:


  1. 8oz Bournville or dark chocolate
  2. 4 tablespoons of Brandy
  3. 3oz Margarine
  4. 4oz Icing Sugar (Sived)
  5. 4oz Ground Almond

What to do:

  1. Break up the chocolate and melt in a bowl over a pan of boiling water, when it starts melting add the margarine and then the Brandy, keep stiring it.
  2. While that is melting, get another bowl and put the ground almonds in and then Sive the icing sugar, stiring them all together.
  3. Slowly add the ground almonds and Icing Sugar to the chocolate mix  bit by bit making sure it is all mixed in together.
  4. Once it is all mixed in leave the mixture to cool for around 10 – 15minutes or until firm enough to roll into balls.
  5. Finally roll into chocolate hundred and thousands, and place in the mini cake cases.


This is the end product and I have to say they are delicious and Rachel at Parenthood highs and lows would say the same.

Would love to hear your thoughts if you have a go at making these.

Enjoy 🙂
