You'll see why in this no-nonsense Clean 9 Nigeria review

Before we dive into how the diet works proper, lets quickly look at…

What’s In The Clean 9 Pack?

Here are the items you'll find inside the clean 9 pack:

Clean 9 Review box
  • One shaker
  • One tape measure.
  • One Forever Fibre (9 packets).
  • One Forever Therm herbal supplement (18 tablets).
  • Two 1 litre (34 oz) bottles of Forever Aloe Vera Gel.
  • One information booklet, including an exercise plan.
  • One Forever Garcinia Plus herbal supplement (54 softgels).
  • One Forever Lite Ultra meal replacement drink powder (15 servings).

Heads up: From my research— Lab experiments that were done on the ingredients used in making the weight loss supplements in the clean 9 pack (i.e Aloe vera gel, Threm herbal and Garcinia plus) were either

  • Insignificant for weight loss
  • Mixed results with no reliable studies
  • Contained no evidence to support any of the claims
  • Had  a Minor Weight-loss effect on animals (like rats) only at very high doses

Don’t believe me?..here are links to some of the experiments 1, 2, 3, 4, 5

Bottom line?

The Weight-loss supplements in the clean 9 pack have NO proven Clinical result to match its Claims.

How Does The Clean 9 Diet Work?/How To Use Clean 9

The Clean 9 diet program is split into three phases for the 9 days

Phase One: Days 1&2

Here's your meal plan for the first two days on the clean 9 diet:

  • Breakfast: 2 Garcinia Plus softgels and 1/2 a cup (120 ml) of aloe vera gel with a glass of water.
  • Snack: 1 Forever Fibre stick with water.
  • Lunch: 2 Garcinia Plus softgels, 1/2 a cup (120 ml) of aloe vera gel with a glass of water, 1 Forever Therm tablet and 1 meal replacement drink (made with 1.25 cups of skimmed milk).
  • Dinner: 2 Garcinia Plus softgels, 1/2 a cup of aloe vera gel with a glass of water.
  • Evening: 1/2 a cup of aloe vera gel with a glass of water.

Heads Up: The first two days are damn hard because you’ll be starving, weak and you’ll feel terrible — It gets even worse If you’re not a tablet person because you have to take a couple of big tablets.

Here are what some clean 9 users said about their first two days:

Clean 9 Side Effects

There are a couple of possible side effects and safety concerns you should be aware of if  you want to try the Clean 9 diet.

Here they are:

  • Dizziness, headaches, tiredness, irritability because clean 9 is very-low-calorie diet (6).

  • Aloe vera intake can cause allergic reactions or weakness, nausea and dizziness in some people. And in rare cases can affect the liver (7).

  • Pregnant and breastfeeding mothers are advised to stay away from clean 9 diet. Because it can cause contractions in pregnant women and stomach upset in breastfeeding babies (8).

  • lastly, people who suffer from diabetes should be cautious with the  Clean 9 diet because it can lower blood sugar (91011).

The other supplements in the clean 9 pack have very few research studies done on them. So side effects and safe doses are not known. However for now, they have no reported side effects.

Does The Clean 9 Diet Work?

First, to clarify, the weight-loss supplements and shakes in clean 9 do not make you lose weight. No.

That said...

Since the clean 9 diet is a very low-calorie diet (about 600 calories), you are most likely to lose weight in the short term if you follow it religiously (read why here)

But the crazy part is:

Most of the weight you'll lose will be mostly water weight and stored carbs, instead of body fat...And...you are going to gain back all the weight and more after the diet is over. (Just like this person’s review below)


Even some of the Clean 9 sellers claim that its meant to be for detoxing and weight loss is a side benefit.

If you ask me, 32K+ is way too much for detox. Especially when you can get the same detox effect for almost free by drinking more water.

So, in essence, if you want to temporarily lose some weight for, maybe, a special event, then you can give the clean 9 a try.

But, if your aim is to lose weight permanently, then don't waste your time and money on clean 9.

Alternative to Clean 9: What Else Can You Do To Lose Weight?

Definitely, there are lots of weight loss and detox alternatives to the clean 9 diet. But nothing still beats a healthy diet and exercise.

Yes, it's not fancy but it works the best!
