Feeling sluggish, wanting to kick a bad habit or simply desire to tune up your body? The 3 Day Refresh cleanse is a simple program designed to take the guesswork out of recharging and nourishing your body properly without it feeling starved.
The 3-Day Refresh is a clean eating program consisting of three daily shakes, a fiber drink, lots of water, and a good mix of fresh veggies, fruits, and healthy fats. It offers a simple meal plan with many alternatives to help you enjoy eating healthy and kick start your weight loss and health goals.
I just finished it yesterday and I couldn’t be happier. I lost 5 lbs and 4 inches. I feel amazing!! So much energy and not craving bad stuff at all. Continuing with clean eating and exercise to keep the ball rolling!!! – Stellanie C.
I recently completed the 3-Day Refresh and today I am going to share with you what I thought. I will be honest and say in my 36 years of life I have never completed a cleanse. I have tried to do a couple of juice cleanses, but I failed miserably at them because I love to eat way too much to give it up even for a day. 🙂
Honestly, I was not sure what to expect with this clean eating cleanse program. Each morning of the cleanse I started out as soon as I woke up drinking 8-10 ounces of filtered water. I normally have a very hard time drinking enough water, but really liked starting out my day doing this. Then about 30 minutes later after I got all my kids fed breakfast I made myself a chocolate Shakeology shake with a piece of fruit to go with it. I normally have Shakeology as my breakfast even when not on a cleanse. Shakeology gives me more energy, keeps me regular, and I was able to quit taking my multi-vitamin, because Shakeology is packed full of vitamins.
Mid-morning I took the digestive health drink called Fiber Sweep. This drink is a blend of soluble and insoluble fibers. It is packed with psyllium fiber, flax and chia seeds which bring you your healthy source of omega-3 fatty acids. This drink gently eliminates waste so as to not run to the toilet all day. One of the things I noticed about this drink is if you leave it set out instead of drinking it right away it will gel up because of the chia seeds and is the consistency of cream of wheat. So if you do not want to eat it with a spoon you need to drink it right away.
I lost 6.6 lbs and 2 inches! I felt great and much less bloated after coming back from Vegas!! Planning to do it every couple of months!! – Natalie C.
When lunch time came I got to choose one fruit, vegetable and healthy fat from the list. I also had another drink called Vanilla Fresh. Vanilla Fresh is a high protein shake made of vegan plant proteins, packed full of probiotics, essential vitamins and minerals, and has a clinically tested potato protein extract that naturally curbs hunger. This shake is very light and had a great flavor.
At dinner I was able to choose from one of the great recipes like the vegetable medley stir fry and salads. I also had my second Vanilla Fresh shake with water. Overall I felt full most of the time and had a hard time getting in my 64 ounces of water recommended. I did have to pee a lot all three days, but that was expected when drinking that much water to flush the system. I never had diarrhea, but I did have gas and let’s say it did not smell pretty. The cleanse did its job when it came to getting the toxins out.
The first two days I had good energy and I really liked just eating the fruits and veggies. I am a carb lover by nature; pancakes, breads, and cereals are my weakness. I realized how I really did not need them and by day three my craving for carbohydrates had diminished greatly. My husband who was not doing the cleanse with me was not so nice. On my first night he decided to grill and that sure meat smelled good, but I stayed strong and instead had that vegetable medley stir fry which was really yummy.
One thing I noticed and you can see in my photos was how my bloating went away. When you consume grains of any kind you can become more bloated. My core muscles were more defined after doing the 3-Day Refresh cleanse. I also had more energy and felt like my skin felt and looked better. I only lost 2 pounds, but I did not need to lose weight. I did lose 1/2 inch from my waist. The diet suggested is really a dairy and grain free diet and I can see how implementing this type eating would be more healthy for my digestive system. I feel my first cleanse was a success and I plan to do this every three months just for a tune-up or right before a special event where I need to look and feel my best. The best part about this cleanse is how easy it is and its affordability. Also the recipes included with the program are ones I plan to blend into my family’s diet, because they were really good.
When it comes to exercise Beachbody recommends you do light to moderate exercise. I did not follow this guideline my second day of the cleanse and I wish I had because I got a headache the next day I believe due to adding more toxins into my system. One program that you could do is PiYo which is Beachbody’s latest strength and stretch program focused on low impact and high intensity.
Who could benefit from the 3-Day Refresh?
- People wanting to shed a few pounds quickly
- Those whose diet has not been great and want to get back to the basics of healthy eating.
- People who have an event like a wedding, reunion or some other big event to attend, and they want to look and feel their best.
- This cleanse is also perfect for those of us who go a little overboard on a holiday weekend or birthday party.
