Question Bank

I followed a Purium program, why didn’t I lose weight?

One thing to remember is that our main goal is to help you embrace healthy living. Weight loss is going to depend on your body and it may just be the icing on the healthy-living cake (the only one you can always splurge on). Of course, we supply average results that our Customers have experienced, like 12 pounds for an Ultimate Lifestyle Transformation. Yet remember, that does not mean you will lose 12 pounds. Weight loss is not always guaranteed–one thing we can guarantee: our 60-Day Money Back Guarantee. If you are not satisfied, feel free to take advantage (see the policy for requirements and more detail)!

Don’t forget, weight loss isn’t the only marker of healthy living. You’ve been flooding your body with nutrient-dense food and are possibly experiencin better energy, digestion, mood, skin and sleep. If you feel good and healthier (better than you were before), that’s pretty fantastic.

Other factors to consider include steress and muscle gain. Stress inhibits weight loss and muscle gain can also contribute.

My program is over. Now, what do I eat and what programs should I use?! 
The best answer to this question is a combination of quality whole foods and Purium superfoods!

We recommend using:

If you’re looking for recipes, we have so many amazing recipes on Facebook, in our guides and on our blog. More importantly, you can use our recommended Flex Foods (the same one you used on your plan) & Lifestyle Meals that offer you the wonders of carbohydrates, fruits, vegetables, proteins, spices, cooking oils and everything you need to create satisfying meals. The list has something for vegans, vegetarians, kids, meat-eaters and everyone else too! There are endless meal options, all you have to do is decide what you want and cook it up!

NOTE: After the 10-day Immersion period in Schedule Option 2, it might be hard for some to transition back to eating. You can start out having 1 meal a day and continuing with two shakes a day as outlined in Day 21-30 on the schedule.

I’m currently using Apothe-Cherry, but I’m still having trouble sleeping. Can I have more advice on how to get better sleep? 

There are a few different reasons why we can’t sleep. Here are a handful of them with some tidbits of advice:

  • Liver detoxification – Our liver detoxes overnight and that can affect our sleep. Having a glass of warm water with fresh lemon juice added first thing in the morning can help our liver during that process. A warm bath before bed is also helpful. Chlorella is an additional support for detoxification.
  • Inner chatter – It’s not easy to close our minds off when it’s time to sleep. In a dark, quiet room, all we have left is our thoughts and sometimes they run a mile a minute. You can help quiet that chatter by taking a pen to paper. Sometimes writing our thoughts before bed helps us fall asleep quickly and sleep more serenely. You might also try to do a sort of meditation. Hold your breath and hold your arms in the air. Then, let your breath out and let your arms fall to your side. Something about doing that takes some of the oxygen out of your brain and helps you to relax. CBD+ may help support relaxation.
  • Krebs cycle (sodium potassium pump) – If you have too much potassium in your body, your muscles will be firing and you won’t be able to relax. During the Krebs cycle, potassium enters cells in the morning, giving you the energy you need in the daytime. Sodium helps you push potassium out of your cells,which can then help you sink into bed and go to sleep at night. If this process is not regulated though, you could have a harder time falling asleep. To avoid messing with this regulation, make sure you are getting enough sodium during the day by taking Super Lytes or adding sea salt to flex foods. If you’re on a cleanse or Transformation, avoid bananas and potatoes in the morning because it can affect regulation.
  • Lack of melatonin – Lack of melatonin production can lead to restlessness at night. By the 3rd or 4th time you are taking Apothe-Cherry, that should be supported.
  • Exhaustion before bed – Some people will make themselves tired before bed by doing activities. You won’t want to workout right before bed though, because that might keep you energized to stay up! Instead, perform another activity that can make you cool down and mellow you out, like reading or meditation.

Why is my product clumping and what can I do? 

If you do not see your question below, you can ask it here for Purium Experts to answer. Please only submit your question once.

Can I use the Ultimate Lifestyle Transformation during my menstrual cycle? 

Your cycle should be taken into consideration when using the ULT. Our Co-Owner Amy Venner recommends to follow Schedule Option 1 as the Accelerated Schedule Option 2 may not necessarily line up to be the best choice for your cycle. The beautiful part of our Simple Schedule Option 1 is that there are no limitations on food choices for your 1 meal a day, so timing may not play as big of a role as it would with the Accelerated option.

Our Co-Owner Amy does not recommend going into the restrictive, immersive portion of the ULT Schedule Option 2 when your hormones may be driving to nourish yourself more and/or causing cravings. Instead, start your Day 1 of the ULT with your cycle so that you would theoretically finish your cycle and experience the “hardest” part of the ULT (Day 11-20) when you feel the most balanced during your cycle. Amy also recommends to not start the immersion portion of the ULT a week prior to the start of your cycle.
