My 3 Day Shakeology Cleanse

As you guys know, I have been struggling for a few weeks. Yesterday, I decided I have to do SOMETHING to get back on track. While I was brainstorming, my Beach Body coach messaged me to help. She told me about this 3 day Shakeology challenge to help boost my metabolism, detox and cleanse and help me get back on track.

 

What is Shakeology?

It is an ultra-premium nutritional health shake, provides the widest array of nutrients from around the world in a nutrient-dense but low-calorie formula. It provides 23 vitamins and minerals in a glass. Get more info here ; http://www.beachbody.com/product/supplements/get-healthy/shakeology.do 

What is the 3 Day Cleanse?

Science Behind the Shakeology® 3-Day Cleanse

By: Steve Edwards, Team Beachbody Director Of Results.

I like to call the Shakeology 3-Day Cleanse a “performance cleanse.” This is because it was designed to be done with a workout program. Let’s take a look at how this differs from other cleanses, how to tailor it to your needs, and what to expect if you or your customers decide to try it.

First of all, it’s not a true cleanse. It’s a calorie-restricted and nutrient-dense diet plan. Traditional cleanses contain very few calories and nutrients. Compared to the much more popular Master Cleanse, it’s like an all-you-can-eat buffet. Traditional cleansing diets are done to rid your system of toxins and bring it into homeostasis. They also contain a spiritual aspect. This process can take a long time, which is why you may have seen coworkers walking around the office in a zombie-like state for weeks on end—swilling a strange concoction of lemons and maple syrup.

The Shakeology cleanse is nothing like that. Depending on how you decide to do it, you’ll be eating frequently and consuming between 800 and 1,200 calories per day, and it could be even more should you feel the need. The point of this cleanse is not calorie restriction, per se—it’s nutrient efficiency. The aim is to get the most nutrients possible into the fewest number of calories. The goal is to put all of these calories to use as a part of your exercise program, to rid your body of undigested foods and toxins, and to bring your hydration levels into homeostasis.

The result you’re after is not weight loss—though it will likely occur—but for your body to be running more efficiently. This should make you feel lighter and more energetic, even though you’re doing an exercise program.

What does the cleanse consist of ?

Essentials:

– 3 Shakeology shakes per day

– 2 cups of green tea per day

– 1 or 2 pieces of fruit per day (optional)

– 1 salad for dinner—can include fish or poultry

– No dairy or extra sugars (this includes almond and soy milk)!

– Drink 2 to 4 liters of water every day

– Only use low-fat dressings, and go easy on the salt and/or pepper to taste

– 2 snacks before/after any of the major meals (breakfast, lunch, and dinner)

– Fruit is optional, and it is discouraged (however, some of you will need the calories while others may not)

– Power-workout participants (those who are already super conditioned) are recommended the higher numbers of calories

– For maximum results, do NOT use additives

– Dinner salad may include WHITE GRILLED PROTEIN—poultry or fish only

So there you have it folks….That’s the plan for the next 3 days. I will try to blog each night and let you all know how it’s going.

As a side note: I just want to point out that I wouldn’t have known about this if it wasn’t for my Beachbody coach. They are very valuable supports to have on a fitness journey. She has been extremely helpful, motivating and inspiring. I would recommend that you get one of your own. Or feel free to contact mines and see if she is available..You can find her and send her a message at https://www.facebook.com/CrazySexyFitt  or www.crazysexyfitt.com  . Check out her page while you’re there!

 

TTYL,
