Good Belly 12-Day Challenge

In December, I posted a review of Good Belly probiotic juice drinks. They sent me coupons and I tried a couple of flavors of their family-sized quarts and some strawberry Good Belly Plus (probiotics plus vitamins and minerals). Everything I tried from them was delicious! It's thicker than regular fruit juice, and it has a creamy yogurt-like consistency. But it's totally vegan.

Well, after my review was posted, the company contacted me to ask if I'd try their 12-Day Challenge: Drink Good Belly for 12 days in a row, and notice a change in what's going on with your digestion. If you go to their website, they'll send you coupons to get started. Plus, Good Belly offers a money-back guarantee for anyone who doesn't love the stuff in 12 days.

Good Belly sent me some vouchers, and I chose three four-packs of these cute little Good Belly Plus shots in mango, blueberry-acai, and pomegranate-blackberry. They're only 50 calories each!

I started the challenge yesterday, and I couldn't have picked a better time. After ending my 21-day Crazy Sexy Diet cleanse two weeks ago, my tummy's been a little pissed off. I went from eating lots of raw food and whole foods to more cake, wine, and fried stuff than I'd eaten in awhile. I didn't mean to go off the deep end, but I don't do well with deprivation. When I can't have something, I want it ten times worse. So last week was my relapse week.

I'm on better track this week to sticking with my post-cleanse health goals. But I could use a probiotic boost to help my digestive tract get back in line. Over the next 10 days of the Good Belly challenge, I'll post updates on how the stuff is helping (or not helping) my digestion. And then at the end of the challenge, Good Belly said I could host a giveaway for free vouchers for one lucky reader. Stay tuned!

I cleansed for 2 weeks and felt great. Then the past 2 days ate gluten and feel like poop, no pun intended. ;) I'm sold on raw, but it's so hard when everyone in your house is not on the same page.

Like you, I had always eyed these in the store but was hesitant to spend so much money on them. After your positive reviews, I'll definitely consider buying Good Belly when I'm shopping next time. Thanks, Bianca!

Neato- I'd love to try those.

Ahh, I'm the same way with deprivation. I figure the best way to prevent overindulgence is to just allow myself to have things like beer and dessert, because when I'm allowed to have something, I usually want it less. Silly psychology!

I'm so glad you posted this, I'll have to check it out! Looking forward to hearing about how it works for you. Those flavors sound yummy!

I drank a bunch of Good Belly stuff a few weeks ago when I was having stomach problems, the only one I really didn't like is the coconut water. They put grape juice in it so when you go to drink it and just expect coconut water, it's kind of weird.

Looking forward to your review on this.

I tried these (after hearing a lot of really good things) and was MISERABLE. It totally fucked up my digestion. I felt like garbage by the end of the twelve days. I think they can be great for some vegans, but clearly not for all.

I LOVE GoodBelly Plus Shots--I really don't know how they get all the probiotics, vitamins and good taste in for 50 calories. No soy or wheat--no dairy--all good. But the best is how I've felt since I have taken it. I didn't realize how angry my insides were--but all that churning and upset was not normal, apparently. And then my doctor telling me my colon was not happy made me realize I had to do something. I am so glad I got into this stuff--I have a GoodBelly shot every day! Now I feel like I'm all peaceful inside--YAY! Try this--it is worth it.
