Shakeology 3 day cleanse..... MY FIRST TIME!
Showing 1 - 20 of 47 results.

Aloha!

I completed a round of Insanity! LOVE IT! and then began a hybrid of P90X/Insanity but life was getting in the way. And now, I had minor foot surgery and was told not to workout at all! I'm not happy about that.... BUT..

I'm going to make this a positive and try the 3 day shakeology cleanse! emoticon




What are the Shakeology Cleanse Benefits?

The purpose of the Shakeology cleanse is to detoxify your body. Overtime toxins from the food we consume builds up in our bodies creating an unhealthy inside that can sometimes surface as other ailments.

The 3 day Shakeology cleanse is meant to give your body the opportunity to rid these unhealthy elements from inside and replace them with the over 70+ vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants included in Shakeology’s revolutionary formula.

Completing the Shakeology cleanse brings on more energy and vitality because you are not consuming heavy foods which gives your body the time to expel the unhealthy buildup of toxins within. Typically people completing the Shakeology cleanse will lose some weight over the short period of time.

Shakeology Cleanse Instructions

Once starting the Shakeology cleanse it is an excellent idea to repeat every three months or so. The Shakeology cleanse is like a reprieve for your body, so every three months is a great way to maintain a healthy balance inside. Additionally, you should always commence a Shakeology cleanse during a three day time frame that you can totally commit to following through on all of the days. Not completing the cleanse in the manner in which it is supposed to be done can lead to less than stellar results. The key is to follow the same regimen all three days.

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 NO almond and soy milk)!
Drink 2 to 4 liters of water every day (to maintain hydration & hasten the expulsion of toxins)
• 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)
• For maximum results, do NOT use additives
• Dinner salad may include WHITE GRILLED PROTEIN (poultry or fish ONLY)


A daily regimen during the Shakeology cleanse would look like this:

Upon waking:
1 cup of green tea upon rising in morning

Breakfast:
1 serving of Shakeology with ice and water (fruit is optional, no more than a cup)

Snack 1:
1 piece of fruit (your choice)

Lunch:
1 serving Shakeology with ice and water (fruit optional)
1 cup of green tea

Snack 2:
(Last snack of day can be done either before or after dinner)
1 serving Shakeology with ice and water

Dinner:
Salad and 3 serving of greens and vegetables, 4 ounces of protein (fish or poultry), and no more than two tablespoons of low fat dressing.

Each of the 3 days of the Shakeology cleanse would follow the same schedule of eating. If also completing an exercise program like P90X or something similar you may want to include the optional fruit in your daily breakdown, this will give your body more energy to burn so you won’t disrupt your workout routine. But, if you are not participating in a heavy workout schedule then you will get the best results by opting to leave the fruit out.

Just a thought, but since you are restricted try the Ultimate Reset. You are suppose to do no exercise with this or very light exercising.

Aloha! So today I finished Day 1! emoticon

So, the morning wasn't too bad. I like green tea but to have it plain... well, it wasn't the same but I still liked it. Lucky I don't have a sweet tooth!

Snack #1 was good, I had a banana. Lunch and Snack #2 were good, shakeologys and another cup of green tea. Supper was awesome! My husband made me turkey and I put it on top of my spinach and iceberg salad with kiwi on the side!!

Today wasn't that bad. It was tough watching EVERYONE else eat. I think that is the hardest part, watching everyone else eat good food! emoticon

But! I need to do a minor reset and get back to healthy eating! I had slipped for about a couple of weeks and really need this! emoticon

Can't wait until tomorrow!!! emoticon

Aloha! I'm sorry it's taken me a bit to respond. I was on vacation emoticon

Actually, I didn't use any dressing. I used a small amount of salt, pepper, and garlic to season the turkey that I added on top of the salad.

I hope this helps! Hope you have a wonderful New Year!!!! I would love to hear if you do well with the cleanse! emoticon

Starting my 3-day cleanse for the first time today! Had my green tea this morning (I don't think I like it hot) drinking water now, then going in for my first shake!

I've actually never had a Shakeology Shake before. Hope I like them!

Also, I drink a few packets of Crystal Light a day to ensure I drink enough water... hope it is OK to drink on the cleanse!

Awesome that you are starting your cleanse! How did you like your shakeology? I have to admit, it must be tough to have never tried shakeology before and jump into a 3-day cleanse! emoticon

What flavors of Shakeology are you doing?

I know its hard for some people to drink just plain water but for the 3-day cleanse, I would not recommend using Crystal Light. It has additives that you are trying to avoid during this time. I would highly suggest using a fresh lemon. Cut it in half and squeeze it into your glass emoticon that will give it a bit of refreshment!

Please let me know how you do or if you have any questions! emoticon

Just about to wrap up day 2... it has definitely been tough... one more day to go!

I have stayed pretty much right in line with the cleanse. Although, I have been drinking Crystal Light, I drink usually 100oz of water a day with it. Also, I have been adding in a few almonds (maybe 4 at a time, no more than 25) throughout the day. Work the night shift so I wake up at 9am, in to work by 3p then home from work around 2a. Working night shift and cleansing defintiely presents another challenge!

I am definitely detoxing though, today I started to feel "cold-like" symptoms. Anyone else have these? Definitely thought I had caught a cold, did some internet research... turns out it's just another way for the body to release the toxins.


One. More. Day.

Sorry you are still having those symptoms. Have you been resting too? Getting enough fluids? That is something that is often overlooked. Get EXTRA fluids! Meaning MORE WATER emoticon It really helps with the cleanse.

How are you feeling now? Overall? emoticon
