I'm stumped. I'm not so sure what is the right answer to your question. I'll do some poking around and get back to you if I find an answer. You should email the people at Medifast as they probably could help you..
Thank you so much for the advice. I have been drinking lots of water because I am craving it!!! YOU HAVE BEEN MY INSPIRATION FOR GREEN SMOOTHIES!!!!! I FEEL LIKE A MILLION DOLLARS!!! YES!!!..
I had also wondered about this, but figured it was level out at some point. Thanks for the info!..
A few months and 60 plus pounds down, I don't have it anymore. I may have gas.......lol......but none of that smell..
I wasn't particularly smelly before but I don't use deodorant anymore. If I want to smell a certain way, I will add perfume..
I actually had a different experience- I all of a sudden stopped needing deodorants! so weird, yet so great! If I eat something cooked or just unraw- I will need one in approximately 2-3 hours.
It's like bad gasoline for a car...just doesn't work well..
Chew on mint leaves, parsley and/or celery. Or add them to your smoothies and enjoy..
They will be refreshing to your system and help with any odor coming from your lymph nodes as you detox...
Thanks I can put some celery in my smoothie tomorrow morning!..
Hello goingtoRAW. Exactly the same thing has been happening to me! I was a bit worried because I thought it was supposed to be the other way around. Some say they don't even use deo anymore. But if it's from the cleansing - then that makes sense. I am also off to the store to find a new deo. Crystal - what is that? Where would I find it? Thank you muchly!..
Islesgirl, it's called "Crystal Body Deodorant Stick". You should be able to find them at any Walgreen's, GNC, many health Medifast food stores and maybe Whole Foods. They cost about $5.99. It does cost more than "regular" dedorant but (and I am not exagerating), I have bought them and had one stick last for over a year!.
You activate it by moistening the top and just apply - that's it! And...you should be protected for up to 24 hours...
I've been using the crystal for years. I prefer it over any deodorant. It does not however stop you from perspiration, so you will still be sweaty. They do last a year or longer .... and you can use it for stinky feet too!..
Slange001 you are so right. The crystal does not stop perspiration - but it goes prevent any odor. We want to sweat anyway to get rid of the toxins!..
First of all, I would carefully investigate the source of those crystals. They say they are natural but I believe they are a "natural" aluminum product..
The other thing is that I have also found I have much less BO since I started with green smoothies. I do use a lot of deoderizing parsley and cilantro in my smoothies. I don't use regular commercial deoderants anymore. I found a couple of new things - a slice of lemon with the skin on is good. But what I mostly use is a bit of that white liquid Milk of Magnesia, a well-known antacid/mild laxative made with Sodium Hyperchlorite solution. Mine is the mint flavored one which feels and smells fresh.
Back in the old days when I produced a lot more perspiration and odor, it might not have been so effective-I don't know. But it sure works now...
