I'm not ready to start my detox. Can I schedule a date for delivery?
Absolutely! During the checkout process in the notes section, add the date you would like the cleanse delivered.
 
Will it be uncomfortable?
The Aster Detox is designed to be gentle and easy to follow. Remember, it is not a fast, which is very harsh on your system.  You will be eating plenty of food and the shakes are pleasant tasting. You may feel a slight withdrawal in the first few days if you are giving up a lot of caffeine or a lot of sugar. 
 
Will I be in the bathroom all day?
It is very important to consume extra water while detoxifying to help flush out toxins. Therefore, most people urinate more often than usual on this program. 
Will I lose weight?
Wweight loss is a side effect and many lose weight during the course of their detox program. Some of the reasons for this weight loss include: lower than usual caloric intake due to having shakes for meals, taking sugar out of the diet, decreased consumption of allergenic foods such as wheat and dairy and release of toxins from fat stores.
 
How many calories are the Detox-Cleanse?
Between 1100-1200 calories for women and 1600 calories for men.  The count varies from each cleanse by about 50 calories.  All of the calories are usable nutrients, that means your body will burn these calories rather than an unusable calorie from a processed food that may be stored as fat because your body has a difficult time breaking down unusable calories.  Simply stated, not all calories are created equal.
 
Will I get headaches?
Some people experience headaches during the first few days due to withdrawal from sugar and caffeine.
 
Can I exercise while cleansing?
You may exercise normally (monitor yourself, of course). Some days you may feel fatigued on these days, you may want to limit yourself to gentle movement such as walking, stretching or yoga, etc.
 
Should I continue with my regular vitamins?
Our program contains many vitamins and other nutrients to help meet your daily requirements.  You may suspend natural supplements during the detox if you wish. Ages 40 and over may continue taking calcium and fish oil
With regard to prescribed medication, DO NOT STOP taking any medically prescribed pharmaceuticals.
