"I always thought "detoxes" were for health nuts and weirdos. But I'd just had a very stressful year at work and had gained about 15 pounds. My officemate had, too, so he got us both the cleanse, thinking we could do it together. I thought, "Okay, I've got support. I'll give it a try." Then, the night before we were going to start, he ditched me!
I was committed, so I went ahead anyway. It was a revelation. I thought I'd be hungry. I wasn't. I thought fasting for 12 hours would be hard. It wasn't. I thought the shakes would taste awful. They didn't. I do have to admit that prepping the healthy food was a lot of work, the caffeine headache hump was awful till I got past it, and I did miss my wine (but not nearly as much as I thought I would).
I lost 14 pounds in 28 days, I slept great, I've stayed off caffeine, I've continued to eat pretty darned healthily (including getting my kids into some healthier food), and I've started the PhysioSlow training, which I love for its efficiency and results.
For me, Physiolife is about finally doing something good for yourself, instead of doing things for everyone else."

I was fortunate enough to find Melissa last spring and do her detox. Since the detox, I haven't had one sinus infection. I used to get a few sinus infections a year since I was nine years old every year! Recently, my husband met with Melissa and did her detox and lost over 25 pounds in eight weeks. He got rid of a great deal of pain and numbness in his body. Melissa is a gifted nutritionist and we are lucky to have found her.
— Ellie and Keith Fisher from Glencoe, IL.
“In March of 2009, I weighed over 245 lbs and was completely miserable with my body and myself. I had been over indulging with food and drinks for several decades. I had tried dieting and exercise but every time I made an effort, I would just gain everything back.
I had never done a detox program before and had no idea what to expect or how my body would react to it. I had nothing to lose. The first 10 days to 2 weeks were very difficult. I had headaches from a lack of caffeine. Then after those first 2 weeks, something amazing happened. I woke up one morning and looked at my wife and said, “I have no appetite!” I also began to notice other benefits such as, I had dropped 10 lbs, I noticed my energy level start to skyrocket, I was sleeping much better, I stopped snoring! I began to feel a clarity of thought in my head that I had never experienced before which was allowing me to make better business decisions. It was truly empowering. I felt I was beginning to regain control of both my eating and myself.
By the time I was finished, I had lost a total of 25lbs over the course of the 30 days with a completely different outlook. People who I haven’t seen for awhile are always completely shocked when they see me and have to know how I did it.
Since I finished the first detox, I decided to continue with Melissa and have been following her program and working out using her PhysioSlow training method and continued to follow the diet recommendations of the program. I have lost an additional 23 lbs since and competed in 3 Triathlons and a half marathon over the past summer. I just completed a second detox with my wife this past October and currently weigh 198lbs.
The Program empowers you to be able to control your eating habits and allows you to learn what the effects of certain foods do to your body. I believe this is a life changing program and could not recommend it enough.”
— James, Owner of Chaise Lounge Restaurant
“I am living proof that there is a "silver bullet" approach to getting healthier and happier, and Melissa Li and Physiolife Studios have it. I successfully completed the amazing 28 day PhysioCleanse & Detoxification program™ and I have never felt better nor have I "been in better health" (according to my doctor). In addition to losing more than 43 lbs, decreasing my cholesterol by 90 points, I am more focused, energetic and happier than ever before. Designed by celebrity trainer, registered dietician, nutritionist and detoxification specialist Melissa Li, RD LDN, this plan enabled me to work and exercise regularly, something that other cleanses or liquid-only detox plans do not offer. By following Melissa's advise, I can proudly report that the Physiolife program is life changing. I feel happy, confident and much lighter. I also enjoyed learning about the incredible health benefits of detoxing your body and cleansing your digestive system, etc. Simply put, this program is amazing. As long as your doctor says it's ok, jump in with both feet and get healthy! Thank you Melissa Li. Thank you Physiolife.”
— Jon, Head of Global Communications for a Fortune 300 Company
“I have never felt better physically and mentally as I have during and after the detox program. I have maintained many of the good habits that the detox program taught me to do. My body has never felt more energized. The detox program and nutritional counseling at PhysioLife Studios is effective and life changing. As a physician and plastic surgeon I recommend the detox to most my patients, friends and family. “
“I have never been one for nutrition, but I started the 28 day nutritional detox program that I never thought I’d be able to stick with. It was a little hard at first, but by the 3rd week I started to notice a difference on the scale and by the 4th week, I did what I never thought I would never be able to do, which is to change my eating habits. I am much more conscious about eating healthy and now I read labels at the grocery store. I have lost 12 lbs on this program. Also, the PhysioSlow workout has made amazing changes for me. I was getting dressed the other day and I was shocked to feel that my thighs had definition and was hard. And the best thing about it is that for the last couple of years, I haven’t been able to wear sleeveless dresses or blouses, but this year, after doing PhysioSlow, I feel comfortable wearing it again, which is amazing for someone my age…”
— Merilee, Interior Designer
“I survived my 28 days and loved it – it was easier than I thought it’d be. Since then, I have continued to drink the shakes twice a day and have a healthy dinner. During the 28 days, I felt the best I have ever felt before. I sleep better, which has always been a huge challenge for me. I lost about 4 pounds…but more importantly, I lost 4” from my waist, 1” from my arms, and 1” from my hips. Needless to say, my clothes fit me better! I can't wait to detox again!”
