Most people who have bought Shakeology have heard about the 3 Day Shakeology cleanse. If you have not heard about it by now then you should really look into doing it as its a quick way to put your body through a detox if you will.
I’m not a nutritionist but merely a messenger of how to do the Shakeology cleanse. From what I’ve been reading, it is not a true cleanse because you are not deprived of calories and nutrients. What this does is provide maximum nutrients with the least amount of calories.
What Is The 3 Day Shakeology Cleanse?
You need to follow the same regimen for 3 days straight. Have 3 Shakeology shakes per day, 1 or 2 pieces for fruit as a snack, and 1 salad for dinner that can include chicken or fish. Drink 2 to 4 liters of water every day and go easy on the salad dressing. Limit your use of salt and pepper with the meals too.
What Do The Meals Look Like?
Breakfast: 1 Scoop Shakeology with or without fruit
Snack: 1 Piece of Fruit
Lunch: 1 Scoop Shakeology
Snack: 1 Scoop Shakeology with or without fruit
Dinner: Salad with fish or chicken served with 3 servings of vegetables.
Use 8 to 10 oz of water blended with ice in each Shakeology you have. All in all you should be consuming 800 – 1100 calories per day while doing the 3 Day Shakeology Cleanse. Try to do one every 4 months or in between workout programs. Try not to do a Shakeology cleanse during a normal week of P90X or Insanity because you will not have as much energy to complete the workouts.
Beachbody’s in house fitness guru Steve Edwards says that a recovery week would be an ideal time. Lay off other supplements during the 3 days. Do a 1 or 2 day Shakeology cleanse if you ate or drank a lot over the weekend. This is a quick way to get all of the gunk out of your system and back on track.
What Were Your Results?
I have done the 3 day Shakeology cleanse 3 times. I only lost 1 pound and just barely a .5% of body fat each time. This was to be expected as I already ate well and don’t have a lot of weight to lose. Even though I take Shakeology daily, this for me was more of a way to get whatever junk I had in my system out before starting my next 60 or 90 day workout program.
When I woke up on the 4th day I felt lighter and mentally better. All of the ingredients that come in Shakeology had a chance to get to work without any interference from the other things I ate. The only down side I felt from doing the Shakeology cleanse was that I was starting to feel very hungry on the third day. I knew this was coming as I cut my normal calorie intake in half.
The Shakeology cleanse is a great way to jump start your weight loss or a way to clean out your body before starting a new workout program. Its really not a hard program to follow and you’ll be surprised how your body reacts to it in such a short period of time.
Each person will have different results but it is nice to give your body a chance to cycle out the bad and replace it with high nutrient meals over a 3 day period.
At the same time this assumes you already have Shakeology in the house. I’ve had a bag sent my house every month for 7 years and will continue to do so. If you don’t buy Shakeology already then you might enjoy the 3 Day Refresh.
