Since I joined Beachbody I have heard so much about this 3 day cleanse and the benefits of doing the regime. First I’ll break it down then I’ll describe my experience.
What is the 3 Day Cleanse?
The 3 day cleanse is a great way to jumpstart your workout program. It is different from other “cleanses” is that it is a calorie restricted, nutrient rich cleanse. Not only does it help to shed a few pounds in a few days (ususally between 3lbs-10lbs depending upon the person) it also helps you to feel energized and to get your digestive system on track. The main goal is to get the most nutrients in your body with the lowest amount of calories.
How does it work?
When committing to the 3 day cleanse, you are committing to 3 Shakeology shakes per day. Along with the shakes you consume 2 cups of green tea, 2 servings of fruit, 3 servings of vegetables, and 4oz of white protein, and LOTS of water. There are many toxins that build up in the body and the area that holds the most are in the intestines. In order to maintain a healthy weight and a healthy body, you must rid the toxins and consume the right nutrients.
How often can you do the cleanse?
The cleanse is only meant to be used as a jumpstart for a new workout program or as a performance cleanse at the end of a program such as T25 or P90X3. It is not recommended to do it more than once per quarter.
What are the benefits?
Benefits of the cleanse are that it can jumpstart your weight loss and fitness routine. and rid your body of fat. It also detoxifies and rejuvenates your body. On top of that it aids in digestive system regulation and increased energy levels.
I went into the cleanse with some questions: Will I be hungry? Will I last the full 3 days? Will I get sick of Shakeology? Can I still workout? I cam out with very clear answers and very clear results. I am gearing up to start the 21 Day Fix on Monday and I am planning to follow the program closely so I wanted to jumpstart this program with the cleanse. The cleanse, although the calories are low, was very filling and I didn’t have times throughout the day where I felt starved. I lasted the full three days and I am so glad that I did! I am down 3lbs and feeling really good about starting the Fix and I made it through without getting sick of the shakes. Let’s be real though, the shakes taste delicious and are so high in nutrients that I couldn’t possibly tire of them! I worked out very mildy while on the cleanse. I did a stretch day, a low intensity weight train, and an aerobics workout. I did’t want to burn up my calories and confuse my body into starvation mode and in turn cause weight gain. Overall I enjoyed the cleanse and I’m glad I did it.
