Cinch Week 1 Results

When they say "It's a Cinch" they mean it.  I have fat girl mentality.  I love to eat any and all food and I adore cocktails and sugary lemonade.  I haven't met a food I won't try and if I like it, I eat it until it is all gone.

Last Monday I started the Cinch program from Shaklee.  What a day in the life of Cinch looks like for me:

Breakfast: Cinch shake made with vanilla soy milk and 1c. frozen fruit (peaches, blueberries, raspberries) *You can also have a Meal bar if you'd rather
Snack: Cinch Energizing Tea and a Cinch snack bar
Lunch: Cinch shake made with vanilla soy milk
Snack: Something full of protein (low fat cottage cheese, string cheese, peanut tofu, celery w/natural peanut butter etc).
Dinner: 600-700 calorie dinner  I have eaten these dinners over the last week.  I had chicken and brown rice bowls with sautéed vegetables mixed with siriacha and plain greek yogurt, 3 tacos with homemade pico de gallo, cheddar cheese, lettuce and plain greek yogurt on whole wheat tortillas (I like things VERY SPICY so I also use Habenero sauce on my tacos!) and glumpkies.

With Cinch you also take a 3-in-1 boost pill with each meal to help boost your metabolism.  You can order yours today and receive 15% off!

So I bet you are dying to know how my first week went.  Well I am proud to say that I am down 5 pounds and I lost 1.1% body fat as well as gained .3% of muscle.  I lost an inch in my waist, .5" in my bust and .5" in my arms!  YIPPEE!!!

How hard is it to stick to the diet? Surprisingly for me, not at all.  I enjoy the quickness and ease of breakfast and lunch and I look forward to a nice healthy meal with my husband (who has lost 11 pounds last week!)  I also like that our grocery bill has gone down since I am replacing 2 of my meals with shakes or bars!

How do the shakes and bars taste? I love the shakes so much!  The strawberry and Cafe Latte are AHHHMAZING!!  The chocolate is nice and the vanilla is scrumptious when blended with frozen fruit!  The chocolate peanut butter meal bar is delicious with a cup of coffee and the snack bars are totally a treat.  I think the taste of the supplements makes a BIG difference and allows me to be more successful.

Are you hungry throughout the day?  No!  That is surprising, isn't it?!  I cannot believe how much I don't feel like eating all the time.  I am usually quite the snacker.

If you have any questions for me, ask me below or email me at and I will address them in a Q&A post soon!

Congrats on the weight loss. I could see myself substituting one meal for a shake or bar each day, but not two, especially seeing as I am mostly a food blogger. I'm going to check these out though.
