      They say things that are good for you tatse bad dont they!

      I purchased some Bio-Light from Boots because it was on offer, I believe I paid about £3 for a 200ml bottle which should have been around £10. Bio-Light is a 3 days detox formula and is available in several flavours, I purchased the woodland fruits flavour. Bio-Light comes in a glass bottle with a security lid. The liquid must be consumed in 3 doses and to help you there are markers down the side of the bottle so you can easily divide the liquid. To use Bio-Light you mix 1/3 of the bottle with 1.5 litres of either filtered tap water or bottled water/minneral water. Through the day you drink the mixture. You do this for 3 days. I found that a thick ring formed around the top of my bottle ( it looked rather disgusting ) so I had to give it a good shake each day before I used it. The mixture is a really dark browny purply colour and unfortuntly when mixed in with water it resembles dirty pond water!! Not very appealing at all, but of course we must suffer for beauty and health! To be honest I did not find the flavour to be too bad, well okay it was a bit yucky, but not as awful as I had heard it is, it was a little fruity but had had a bitter after taste and it made my mouth feel funny as it left a sort of residue behind. You need to sip the drink throughout the day rather than drink it all down in one sitting, so you can't even down it and get it over with unfortunatly. As with all programmes of diet or detox its important to each 3 healthy meals each day when using Bio-Light. There is a leaflet in the box which gives you some healthy eating plans and ideas however I did not use that, I just made sure I ate nutritionally balanced low calorie meals. Whilst using Bio-Light I found that I had to use the loo more frequesntly but Im not sure if that is a result of using Bio-Light or just that I usually drink a lot less water than I should and because I was using Bio-Light I consumed and extra 1.5 litres of water on top of what I usually drink. I also found I was a bit irritable and my skin went a bit funny, infact I would say my body reacted in a very similar way as when I am pre-menstrual. I can only assume this is because of Bio-Light as it all settled down a day or 2 after I stopped using the product. I do have another bottle still and I am keen to see if I react the same way second time around. The reason I decided to buy Bio-Light other than its reduced price, was that I was about to start a healthy eating and exercise plan ( Im not keen on the word diet! ) and I wanted to give my body a bit of a kick start and clear out toxins etc... so I was really pleased that on the 4th day I weighed myself and found I had lost 4lbs. Bio-Light is made from herbs, sea kelp, fruits and plants according to the box and it claims that it can more thanb double the effect of eating healthily when used to assist with weight loss. Im planning on starting my second bottle in a few days and I do reccomend it as it did give my weight loss a kick start last time I used it and I did feel healthier following its use.

        This was the best thing ever! I am totally crushed now that Boots has discontinued it. Please let me know if there's any other place where I can still buy it. Cheers!

        If you can stick to it this is the best detox I have ever done with the added bonus of losing 5lbs, makes you feel terrible for first two days but the benefits after are amazing, curbs your appertite and put me on the road to a big weight loss, 3 stone. I would recommend this to everyone

        I've done this detox about 10 times now. If you follow the instructions you really feel it works. I feel so much better after doing the program, but agree that the taste is pretty rank. after a few times you get used to it. I would say the yellow box has the better (or least bad) flavour. of all the detox's I've tried (boots etc) this is the best by far!

        I have done this 3 day detox on a few occasions, when I have needed a 'boost' or ready for the start of watching my weight. The Strawberry one isn't the best tasting thing I have had and I found the Rasperry one was a lot better.I think it's a great pick me up and makes me feel revitalised and refreshed.

        Advantages

        Disadvantages

        I decided to detox after I'd had enough of waking up every morning looking like Yoda. I'd read that dark bags under the eyes are due to toxic build-up, I'd had enough of paying for eye creams that weren't miraculous enough, and I reckoned I could do with a clean-out anyway. I chose the 3-day detox as a practice run-up to doing a longer detox in future. What you get for your thirteen quid is is a 200ml bottle of concentrated detox drink. Ingredients are: aromatic aqueous plant extract (purified water, clove, wheatgerm, liquorice, cinnamon, ocean kelp, juniper, clam, ginger, caraway, soya, yeast, fenugreek, verbena); fruit juices (raspberry, prune, lemon, apple, grape, carrot, black radish, beetroot); glycol; antioxidant; ascorbic acid; sweetener; potassium acesulfame; glycerine; stabiliser; lecithin; magnesium chloride; natural flavouring (raspberry, in this case); and essential oils (cinnamon, orange, juniper). The bottle is marked down one side into thirds: every day, you shake the bottel and mix a third with 1.5l of mineral water, which you then drink over the course of the day. Yup, it tastes pretty foul - I went for the, er, "raspberry" flavour - but I got used to it really quickly. It took me literally all day to force the first day's 1.5 l down me but on the second day I found it easier, finishing it by teatime, and on the third day I was actually beginning to like the taste and didn't find it hard to swallow at all. While you detox, you follow a sensible diet - suggestions come in a leaflet inside the box. You are told to avoid oil, butter, starch, fatty cheese, sugared drinks, meat extract, fat, alcohol and salt. Breakfast should be a rye cracker + boiled egg/poached fish, or a piece of melon + rye cracker + live yoghurt (rye crackers to be eaten with low-cal spread), or wholegrain cereal with semi-skimmed milk, or fresh fruit. Lunch and dinner menus are provided from "bioblocks" printed on the le aflet - lunch is one portion from Block A, one from B and unlimited from C while dinner is one A, no Bs and unlimited Cs. Block A lists: lean steak/lamb (3oz), any fresh non-fatty fish or seafood (4oz), chicken/turkey/low-fat cheese (4oz), or tofu/quorn (4oz). B lists: 2 rye crackers with/without low-cal spread; 1 slice rye bread; 1 small jacket potato; 1 live yoghurt; small portion brown rice; small portion wholemeal pasta. C lists: asparagus; beans; beansprouts; broccoli; brussel sprouts; cabbage; carrots; cauliflower; celery; consomme soup; courgette; cucumber; garlic; herbs; leek; lettuce; lentils; marrow; mushrooms; nori; onions; pulses; parsley; radishes; spinach; seeds (any); swede; tomatoes; wakame (I don't know what that is either). If you feel like snacking, you can have anything from C or another list, D, which is: apple; apricot; banana; cherry; kiwi; date; fig; mango; nectarine; pear; raspberry. Side-effects were mild toxic headaches - (nothing too painful), some spots (which weren't too volcanic and which disappeared pretty quickly), and feeling a bit light-headed for the first day and a half. Nothing severe. If you follow the guidelines exactly, your intake should be about 1000 high-level calories a day. You're told to cut out caffeine and sugar, as well as diet or low-cal drinks; to remove the fat from meat before cooking and to grill meat and fish; to steam vegetables, if possible, or boil them as briefly as you can. I don't know if I lost weight - I don't reckon I lost much, if any - but I did feel and look better. The manufacturers advise that those who were unsuccessful in losing weight on their first try are often more successful if they try again - but this may well be a marketing ploy to getyou to fork out for it a second time, of course. However, the saggy grey bags under my eyes got smaller every morning and have now vanished altogether (yesterday was my last detox day), I actually hav e some colour in my cheeks for a change, and I do have noticeably more energy - I had to get up 3 hours earlier than usual this morning and I was out of bed and in the shower before the alarm went off, which is remarkable. I'm going to wait a while and then try a longer detox program to see if I can't shift my cellulite as well...watch this space.

          Having been on weight watchers and then going on holiday and ignored the diet I needed to lose the weight I put on before my next meeting! I also liked the idea of a detox. I have given up already on day 1. I have the strawberry mix which is absolutely disgusting, I have managed to drink about a litre of it but alas, I cannot go on. It may do wonders but I've felt really woozy all day! If you want to lose weight I reccommend weight watchers and if you want to detox, go to a large branded chemist and buy their tablets and take them for a month. Much easier!

            • "Too short to have a huge impact"

            Well, it sounded like a good idea - in just three days I could cleanse my system, loose weight, improve my skin and increase my enegery levels. Who wouldn't want to do that? The idea is simple - just drink the bio-lite drink (dilluted in water) and eat healthily. Sadly the reality was that the drink was vile. I tried the rasberry based flavour and then the blackberry/blackcurrant based flavour. I can normally make myself eat and drink most things for a good cause, but this was impossible. They stank and were utterly revolting. I got my boyfriend and sister to test them, and they both agreed that they would have to be paid an awful lot of money to go near them again. In the end I spent three days eating very healthily and drinking lots and lots of water. I lost 2lbs and did feel better. There wasn't any noticable improvement to my skin however. Its impossible to say whether or not I would have got a better effect if I had been able to choke down the drinks, but I'm not convinced that I would have seen much more of an improvement over just three days. I'm soon to try the Boots 5 day detox drinks which at least smell pleasant - if you do decide to try the bio lite detox I recommend that you open the bottle in the shop and check the smell - if that doesn't put you off then yu might be ok!

              Advantages

              Disadvantages

              Having drank far too much and eaten too many Heinz backed bean pizza’s (very nice do try one) I have been feeling a bit ‘floopy’ (technical term for crappy). I felt tired all the time and looked like I’d just been dug up. A bit of research suggested I try the Bio Light 3 day Detox. Most of the alternatives to this meant a 7 day course (not bloody likely), or regimes that were more specifically for loosing weight. Whilst the Bio Light has been included in the diet section of Dooyoo this is not the primary function of the plan. The blurb states the detox can ‘Provide your digestive system with a kick start and when taken in conjunction with the enclosed eating plan can better help your body to cope with eliminating toxins and stubborn fatty deposits.’ Aside from the ‘stubborn fatty deposits’ which made me sound like the hob on the cooker this was exactly what I was looking for, and lets face it if it didn’t really work I believed that it might and that’s half the battle. So I trundled off to Holland and Barratt parted with, gasp £12.99, and walked home clutching my 200ml bottle. I read the leaflet and it recommends a diet of certain veg and fruit, brown rice, wholemeal pasta and certain types of meat or Quorn (or interestingly on the exterior of the box ‘Quark’ – was he not in Deep Space Nine?). So off to Asda to purchase my veg – I hate veg and tried to figure out how I could live for three days on mushrooms and onions, the only two listed I felt I could actually eat. Strangely peas, potatoes, kidney beans and anything else with any flavour were not included. So I’m set up with my brown goo in a bottle, lime flavour apparently but tastes like flat coke. You mix 1/3 of the bottle per day with 2 2/3 pints of filtered water and sip throughout the day. You can have 3 meals, breakfast of some weird concoction they suggest on the leaflet of any whole-wheat cereal, and a dinner and lunch of a protein, pasta or rice or similar as suggested and veg. Prohibited foods include bread (apart from rye bread) salt, meat flavourings, cakes, biscuits, processed foods, coffee and alcohol. Yum. The first day went quite well. The liquid gave me a headache, but this was one of the possible side effects along with spots, fluid retention and a change in bowl habits (mine has now started gambling). This I could cope with but the food… god the food. I hate anything bland, thank god you’re allowed garlic, there wasn’t a vampire in the county who was safe I covered everything in it just to get some flavour. The second day I would have stepped over a dying man to get a snickers and nearly killed my boyfriend but I was feeling better. My stomach was flatter and I felt a bit more bouncy. I had lost 2 pounds, although this wasn’t my aim. The third day I got a spot, I never get spots but I took small comfort in the fact this meant it was working. The constant diet of veg was playing havoc with my digestive system but I felt even better than on day two. I was desperate for a cup of coffee and I don’t even drink coffee so I feel sorry for anyone who is a caffeine addict the withdrawal must be hellish. Overall I think it was a success. You are supposed to follow the eating plan for another four day, but this is to standardise any weight loss and I’m not concerned about my weight. So for the safety of those around me I went back to my old habits. This worked for me but I’m not so sure about anyone who wants to loose weight by following a detox plan. The leaflet recommends following two courses of the plan followed by four days of healthy eating for any significant weight loss. You would have to be a brave person to put up with that for ten days. I’m not that brave. But I was able to run to Asda faster for a pizza. < br>
