TESTIMONIALS

From the first day immediately I felt it really filled me up and I wasn’t as hungry nor did I have any unhealthy cravings. I had plenty of energy and felt the need to use it to work out. I lost weight effortlessly and introduced long lasting healthier habits as a result. Thank you!! – Carita London


Well i’ve started two mornings with IAM lean and i’ve had two miracles! firstly, the bronchitis/cough/cold that i’ve been fighting for over two weeks has disappeared overnight. secondly, i woke up ready to go for my first run in 3 weeks, (i’m supposed to be training for a half marathon in september but the chest thing had stopped me in my tracks!) i went out thinking it would probably just be 4-5 km and would feel tough… and i ran 9km and ENJOYED it!! watch this space!! Kylie Harrison – Monaco


“I am Lean” blend now for just over a month and I absolutely love it. As a Physiotherapist, Pilates teacher and massage therapist I need loads of energy to get through every day. I’m not usually one for taking supplements but as soon as Naomi told me this was all natural I had to give it a try and I’m hooked! I have all the energy I need to work and work out for myself. It’s sorted out some long standing tummy issues and I feel great. I no longer have cravings for sugary snacks mid afternoon. So no more afternoon sugar crashes. All my clients have commented on how much trimmer and healthier I’m looking. I’ve tried the blend with all sorts of different bases my favourite is freshly squeezed lemon and coconut water or if my sweet tooth is tingling chocolate coconut milk. Thanks Naomi! I am Lean!”

Suzanne Ward – France


It works!

I took the I am lean blend for about a week after feeling a little bloated and heavier than usual. I mixed it with coconut water and took it in the mornings after breakfast. I noticed that I had lots more energy to work out and it definitely curbed any cravings to snack which is my downfall.. With a bit of exercise and healthy food choices I lost 3 kgs in a week. I was delighted with the results and am currently retaking it now before my holiday in Jamaica next week … It is a fabulous product!
