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.
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 –

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.
