How To Do The Shakeology 3 Day Cleanse
Tomorrow I start a Shakeology 3 Day Cleanse. I’ve had a few questions about what this is, how to do it, it’s benefits, and decided to share a bit about it and how it has helped me in the past.
So here is what the cleanse is:
First thing in the morning – Cup of Green Tea
Breakfast: 1 scoop/pack Shakeology, 8-12 oz water, ice, and up to 1/2 cup of fruit
Snack: 1 piece of fruit (100 calories or so)
Lunch: 1 scoop/pack Shakeology, 8-12oz water, ice, 1 cup green tea
Snack: 1 scoop/pack Shakeology, 8-12oz water, ice
Supper: Salad with all veggies (dark green leafy lettuce needed), 3-4oz of lean white meat, fish or chicken, grilled, and no more than 2 tbsp of a light or fat free salad dressing
In my opinion, it’s not that easy. I’m also a bit hypoglycemic, so it is a bit tougher for me. Last time I did it I lost 2.4 pounds in 3 days.
But…after the cleanse, my body fat dropped faster than ever before. It was a reset for my body.
It is exactly what I need before my upcoming round of Insanity.
The calorie goal is between 800-1200 calories for 3 days. The cleanse is meant to last no longer than 3 days (much longer than that and your cortisol levels may rise to high and defeat the weight loss portion of the cleanse). If you need to you can add some calories to it in the form of fruit, seeds, nuts (raw), or other natural superfoods. I’m going to keep an extra piece of fruit with me at all times to help.
The cleanse is meant to rid your body of toxins, undigested food, and put your body back into homeostasis. You’ll move your pH balance back to where it is supposed to be. It will also help with weight loss, and belly bloat.
This is also meant to be an active cleanse, meaning you keep exercising. Realize that you will not be able to push as hard on a normal nutritional day, but you are meant to do something. Don’t do it in the middle of P90x, Insanity, or Turbo Fire, but you could do it during a recovery week.
If you want more specific information on the cleanse or would like to purchase a Shakeology cleanse pack, send me an email to email@example.com and I will let you know when I have cleanse packs together. Packs cost $45 for the 3 days.
