The start of a brand-new year, and let’s face it, after last year who doesn’t want to make a strong and positive start to the New Year? January is the time for a fresh start, a clean slate and a recommitment to our goals, so with that in mind, some of us here at Head Office have decided to give ourselves a kickstart to getting fit and healthy in 2021 with our Head Office C9 Challenge.

From 11th January, join me – Amelia – along with Rachel, Lorraine and Vanessa, as we navigate through the programme, and watch our vlogs as we share our (honest) experiences with you.

But what is the C9 and why does it work?
This nine-day programme includes advanced nutrition and exercise routines to help you succeed and reach your personal best on your terms. Typically, it can take up to three weeks to break out of a habit, so the C9 is designed to help adjust your mindset and get your nutrition on track so you can challenge yourself to really look and feel better, and develop long-term habits that will help you to achieve a healthier lifestyle.

The C9 is not just a nine-day programme. It is a reset for your body to help you develop healthy habits that you can take forward after the programme has finished. Think about what you want to achieve with this programme, and set yourself goals which you can tick off as you progress through. Remember, set your goals for YOU.

To support you with your reset and help you make the most out of your routine, you need a strong nutritional foundation, and this programme is specifically designed to fuel your body, alongside helping you to alter and develop your mindset to conquer cravings and stay committed to your goals. Five products make up the foundation of this programme, and each one is designed to provide supplemented support:

The Products:
ALOE VERA GEL DRINKS
Forever’s Aloe Vera Gel drinks are the foundation of a healthy routine, and contain up to 99.7 percent pure inner leaf aloe gel. Aloe is great for skin, the immune system and it’s an ideal digestive aid. This purifying gel also contains vitamin C which contributes to the normal function of the immune system and to a normal energy-yielding metabolism. On the programme you can choose either classic Forever Aloe Vera Gel or try Forever Aloe Peaches or Forever Aloe Berry Nectar for a burst of cranberry, sweet apple and vitamin C.

FOREVER LITE ULTRA
Forever Lite Ultra is a delicious shake mix that provides your body with crucial muscle-building protein along with a complex blend of vitamins, minerals and amino acids. It’s low in carbohydrates and calories, but high in nutrition to help keep those cravings in check and satisfy your taste buds with delicious chocolate or vanilla flavour.

FOREVER THERM
Forever Therm is a carefully created formula contains a special combination of vitamins, including B6 and B12, which contribute to the reduction of tiredness and fatigue; the vitamin C will also contribute to a normal energy-yielding metabolism. Forever Therm also delivers caffeine from natural sources like guarana and green coffee beans.

FOREVER GARCINIA PLUS
Garcinia Cambogia is a tree, native to Southeast Asia, which produces fruit prized for its culinary and beneficial purposes. As well as the fruit’s extract, Forever Garcinia Plus contains chromium which contributes to normal macronutrient metabolism and the maintenance of normal blood glucose levels.

FOREVER FIBER
Fibre is an essential part of any diet. It supports digestion and the growth of healthy bacteria to keep your gut going strong. Every packet of Forever Fiber provides the same amount of fibre as a cup-and-half of brown rice or two slices of whole wheat toast without the calories or carbs!

The Journey
The products are only part of the programme. The C9 provides a road map to guide you step-by-step as you break bad habits and start incorporating better choices.

The first two days are challenging, but immensely rewarding. Kickstart the process of eliminating stored toxins and preparing your body for the next stage of the programme. You’ll replace some of your meals with a Forever Lite Ultra shake and have a list of healthy free foods to choose from to help manage cravings between meals.

On days three through to nine, you’ll really start building your progress to help you feel stronger and healthier. This is when healthy, balanced meals and light exercise are introduced to the programme.

After day nine, you will not only feel renewed, but have the tools you need to keep pushing forward. The C9 programme has everything you need to jumpstart your journey. From delicious, healthy recipes to exercises and supplement schedules, you’ll have all the tools you need to track your progress and stay motivated.

So, whether you are looking to kickstart your fitness journey, or simply challenge yourself to breaking bad habits, setting goals that are personal to you will really help with your progress and motivation. No matter what your achievement – whether you’re increasing the amount of fruit and veg you eat, or conquering that workout that you didn’t think you could – every goal you achieve is a success.
