What is the 3 Day Refresh??

3 day refresh before after 3day detox clease beachbody cleanse three

You may have heard me talk about the Shakeology Cleanse before – it’s a great way to drop around 5 pounds in three days, following a mostly liquid diet, and you can read more about it here.  But as great as the results from the Shakeology Cleanse were, it wasn’t an ideal way to clean out your body and really detox.  Shakeology is an awesome product, but that isn’t what it was designed for.

Luckily for us, Beachbody saw what we were doing and knew we needed a better solution.  A healthy way to detox your body quickly, to safely lose weight, and even to jumpstart your weight loss results from one of our other awesome programs like the 21 Day Fix.  And so they created the 3 Day Refresh.

I have done cleanses before, and they are hard.  But one of the things I love about this cleanse is that it isn’t strictly liquids.  It includes the best of every detox program I have heard from – Shakeology, tea, juice, clean eating, and supplements and it combines them all into an easy to follow program for three days that delivers amazing results.

I am in pretty good shape.  For the most part I eat clean and stay away from processed foods.  And because of that, I didn’t expect amazing results.  But what happened for me BLEW. ME. AWAY.

But before I share my results with you, let me tell you a little bit about how the refresh works.

3 day refresh meal plan

Each day, you wake up and get started with a cup of water followed by Shakeology.  You can add in fruit or eat it on the side.  Mid morning, you can have a cup of tea and you drink Fiber Sweep, a supplement designed to gently clean out your insides.

For lunch, you drink Vanilla Fresh, a specially designed protein drink with more protein than Shakeology and vitamins specifically geared to sustain your body during the cleanse.  You also get to have a veggie serving and a healthy fat.  Mid afternoon, you can drink another cup of tea along with an afternoon snack, another veggie or a fresh juice – I chose the juice option and it was the perfect amount of sweet to keep me going.

For dinner, it’s another shake along with a dinner option – a little more than just veggies – and you can accompany that with veggie broth if you need just a little more.  Post dinner, you have the option of one more cup of tea.

Each day you follow the same routine, but since there are multiple food options, you can change it up some what.  I made a video diary of each day I followed the refresh, how I felt, what I ate, and what I did.  Here are the videos –

If you are curious about exactly what comes in your kit, check out this video where I show you exactly what you get.

Exercise is optional during the three days.  By the end of three days, I felt great but there were times when I felt weak, so listen to your body.  My results were little to light exercise on two days.

One thing I added to my refresh was a daily detox bath.  I have long believed in detox baths and I thought it would be relaxing and hopefully intensify my results.  Each day I did a different one – I elaborate more on them in the videos, and I also plan to post about that later this week.

So after three days, here are my results – I was down three pounds AND I lost THREE INCHES in my waist alone.  My pictures aren’t amazing… but I am not sucking in… coming off a weekend in Vegas, I was pretty bloated from bad food.  But THREE INCHES????  I was in shock.  I measured multiple times because I was sure that I was wrong.  My main waist measurement went from 29.5 inches to 26.5 inches.  In three days.

These are my skinny jeans and my skinny top.  The one I never wear because it’s too small… and it fit.  And beyond that, the way I felt?  Amazing.

The Ultimate Reset: Review from a Cancer Survivor/Post Chemo

Image

If I could recommend one thing to every cancer patient who has finished chemo and beat cancer, it would be the Ultimate Reset. During chemotherapy, cancer patients spend months filling our bodies with chemicals to fight the war on cancer. When it was all over, there is nothing I wanted more than to purge my body of all those chemicals. Just a few months before I finished chemo, I read about a product being released called the Ultimate Reset. I read the results of this amazing 21 Day Cleanse and I wanted to do it. Right then. But doing it during chemo is a horrible idea! All of the toxins are playing an important part in the battle going on inside you. I decided to wait until I had the results from my post chemo PET scan, and once I got the all clear, I would give it a shot.

food medicine heal yourself fruits veggies cleanse detox 21 day fix restore reclaim release ultimate reset

So, 1 month post chemo, I went in for my PET scan. One week later, I got official word that my body was cancer free and the following Monday, I started the Ultimate Reset. Let me tell you a little bit about what this product is and what it does.

It is a 21 Day Cleanse that takes you through three phases, Reclaim, Release, and Restore.

Reclaim

In Phase 1, you Reclaim your body, balancing its inner chemistry and preparing it for change—much like soap loosens grime.

Release

In Phase 2, you Release the toxic compounds that are clogging your cells and stored within your tissues—like a purifying surge of clear water that flushes away years of impurities.

 

Restore

In Phase 3, you Restore your metabolism to maximum efficiency, while fortifying your body with the nutrients, enzymes, and probiotics it needs to maintain healthy performance in the future.

My Experience:

Three days into the cleanse, I started waking up early. I am not a morning person. I am a sleeper. But I was hopping out of bed at five in the morning, without an alarm, full of energy and ready to start my day. By the time I finished, I literally felt the best I have ever felt in my entire life. So many people were asking me “How’s it going? How do you feel?” And with a huge smile on my face, less than two months post treatment, I could tell then that I had never felt better. All of the toxins, including the cancer, were out of my body and I was completely restored. I was reset.

Ultimate Reset FAQs

Will I be hungry all the time during the Ultimate Reset?

No. You’ll eat three healthy, satisfying meals every day. Most participants found the meals provided them with plenty of food. Just in case, though, we also give you a list of tasty snacks you can eat while still maintaining your Reset.

What’s the difference between the Ultimate Reset and most cleanses on the market?

During the Ultimate Reset, you’ll eat three healthy, satisfying meals every day and take supplements. You won’t starve, drink only juice, or eat only meal replacements. You’ll become familiar with delicious new foods and recipes that will help you maintain your health gains beyond these 21 days. In other words, the Reset isn’t a quick fix. It’s a path to real, long-term change.

Will I lose weight on the Ultimate Reset?

Probably. Most Reset participants have lost weight. However, they’re even more excited to have acquired new, healthy habits and released unhealthy ones. They’ve eliminated cravings for sugar and caffeine, learned delicious ways to prepare fruits and vegetables, and grown more aware of how different foods affect their moods and energy levels, making it easier for them to continue eating healthily.

Can I work out during my Ultimate Reset?

No, for the 21 days of the Ultimate Reset, we suggest you refrain from strenuous exercise. The Reset is already giving your body a serious internal workout. After your Reset, you’ll be ready to resume your Beachbody® workout program and benefit even more from your efforts.

I’m on medication. Can I do the Reset?

Check with your physician before beginning the Reset to make sure that it won’t react negatively with any medication you’re taking.

I’m pregnant. Can I do the Ultimate Reset?

No. Your body’s systems are already working hard. Wait to do the Reset another time.

What if I have questions, or need help understanding something in the Reset?

Don’t worry! You’ll have the support and guidance of ME every step of the way. And because I’ve already completed the Reset, I’ll know how to answer your questions from experience.

What is the Shakeology Cleanse?

shakeology cleanse explained

About a year ago, I tried my first Shakeology Cleanse. I didn’t take pictures or record my measurements, but I know I lost around 4 pounds and quite a few inches – and it stayed off.

Now, with the release of the 21 Day Fix, I’m ready to try it again. I have read several blogs and testimonials about doing the cleanse, and I know it’s a great way to jump start a weight loss program, break through a plateau, or just cleanse your body of toxins.

From the results I have seen among my coaches and clients, typical weight loss is between 3-10 pounds depending on where you start, and while it sounds a little scary, it’s totally worth it.

So I am going to give it a try – I’m starting next Friday to do it over the weekend (Friday, Saturday, Sunday) – right before I start the full 21 day fix program on Monday morning. Interested in doing it with me? Message me for details! I’ll be mailing out cleanse kits on Monday morning for anyone who wants to give it a shot at the same time as me for extra support.

What is the Shakeology Cleanse and what makes it different from other cleanses…

The Shakeology Cleanse is not truly a cleanse in the sense that people normally mean cleanse – you are not starving yourself and you still get to eat real food (not just liquids!). There are no weird combos of cinnamon and cayenne powder to drink… just nutrient rich foods along with Shakeology. You will be restricting your calories, but you will also be satisfied because you are still providing your body with all the nutrients it needs.

The main goal of the cleanse is to get the maximum amount of nutrition into your body with the fewest calories consumed. You will still be fueling your body but you will also be ridding it of toxins. The result? Your body will run more efficiently! And as an added bonus? You can lose anywhere from 3 to 10 pounds in just three days!

3 day Shakeology Cleanse

The Benefits of the Shakeology 3-Day-Cleanse:

  • Get rid of body fat
  • Detox your body
  • Jump start your weight loss
  • Break through a plateau

So how does the Shakeology Cleanse actually work?

Your meal plan will actually be really close to what you normally eat! You’ll still be eating every few hours, you still get snacks, and you still get meals that are balanced and full of nutrition. During the cleanse, you will still be able to workout. You also have the option to add extra fruits or nuts as well as the fiber supplement from Shakeology. You will get one solid meal a day – your salad – which can also contain four ounces of protein along with fruits, nuts, and seeds, legumes, and veggies.

YOU CAN STILL FEEL FULL! The point is to keep you feeling full and also to avoid anything that is artificial – so no salad dressing.

During the Shakeology Cleanse you will optimize your body’s performance. You want to have enough food to fuel your day and your workout, but by eating the food recommended, it would be hard to overeat. And with an abundance of fiber, digestive aids, and enzymes, your body will get rid of excess food, fat, and waste.

This cleanse is not meant to be a substitute for good nutrition or a fitness program, rather, it’s meant to be used WITH your regular fitness plan. You should schedule during your recovery weeks, especially if you are doing an intense program.

It’s is also a GREAT way to jump start your weight loss results before starting a new fitness program, or breaking through a plateau if you have been stuck for a while. For me, I’m doing the cleanse the weekend before starting my new challenge group for the 21 Day Fix, getting your body healthy, and get a head start on awesome results.

You might not lose weight…

And truly, that’s not the goal! The true purpose of the Shakeology Cleanse is to clean all of the JUNK out of your body – to DETOXIFY.

Yes, MOST people will lose some weight but weight… but people with a lot of junk in their systems will probably lose the most weight. If you already eat pretty clean (focusing on whole foods and avoiding processed foods) your body won’t have to detoxify nearly as much as someone who hasn’t. But even if you don’t lose a lot of weight during the cleanse, it will prepare your body to lose weight as you start your new fitness program.

Another thing to consider is that a calorie restriction can be stressful – so the stress level in your body may prevent you from losing as much weight as you could. This is one of the main reasons not to do the Shakeology cleanse for more than 3 days, and not more than once per quarter.

Shakeology Cleanse – 9 pounds in 3 Days!!??

Maggie is a coach on my team.  She works full time as a grill cook at a restaurant (talk about a challenging job when you are trying to get fit!!).  She also runs her own Beachbody Business and is committed to getting into the best shape of her life WHILE planning a wedding, taking care of a new puppy, and maintaining her parents home while they take care of her sick grandmother (!!).  Oh, and in her free time, she loves to knit!  If she can make time for health and fitness, ANYONE can!   But in any weight loss journey, there are times when you need to change things up – maybe you hit a plateau, maybe you are getting ready to start a new program and want to jumpstart your results!  To do that, you need to change your diet, increase your exercise or decrease your calories – and the Shakeology cleanse is a healthy option to do just that.  So another healthy option is to do the 3-day Shakeology Cleanse.  Maggie, along with some of her support system, took the Shakeology Cleanse Challenge and here is her story!

Maggie’s Story

936040_10201326448866552_1494629029_n“I did the cleanse right after before Thanksgiving. It was really hard with all of the delicious treats everyone was making! I was in a group of four people, my fiance’ and I and my friend and her fiance’; so that made it easier to stay accountable. The first day was definitely the hardest. It was almost like my sense of smell had been maximized! I could literally smell EVERYTHING! But I stayed strong because I knew I was going to get amazing results if I stuck it out and I would be so mad at myself if I gave up!

The next day was so much easier! I woke up with a good nights sleep, feeling alert and refreshed! I had only had maybe 4 hours of sleep because I was up late doing my Christmas knitting and I had a lot to get done. Day two went by smoothly and day three was a breeze! I was at the finish line and I would NOT give up!

Shakeology Cleanse

I’m not going to lie, on the second day, I only had 2 shakes instead of the 3 and on the third day I didn’t drink the green tea or have an AM snack. I know that if I would have done it the way I was supposed to, then my results would have been even more amazing! But I was BLOWN AWAY with my results! I lost 9 lbs and 3 inches off my hips!!! My group as a whole lost almost 24 lbs!! We were all so excited with our results and I cannot wait to do the cleanse again at the end of the quarter to feel amazingly clean, refreshed and overall, happier!” ~Maggie
