Beach Body, most commonly known for Insanity and P90X has introduced a new 3 Day Refresh system/cleanse/detox …And as my most loyal readers know I LOVE a good detox! So I was pretty stocked when my pretty box came in the mail! It was pretty much Christmas in July for me. I know I’m nerdy that way. But quite honestly after moving, the fourth of July, and just enjoying Summer goodies my body NEEDED a good detox!
Now for the good, the bad and of course The ugly…
It is super easy to follow! Every day consists of the following meal outline:
Breakfast: Shakeology Shake + 1 Fruit Option (you’re given a list to choose from)
Tea Break: Unsweetened green or herbal – I did not take a tea break but if you’re a tea drinker go for it!
Late AM: Fiber Sweep Digestive Drink
Lunch: Vanilla Fresh Protein Shake + 1 Fruit Option + 1 Veggie Option + 1 Healthy Fat! (Lists are provided with options to choose from for these as well)
Snack: Veggie + Healthy Fat OR 1 raw juice option
Tea Break: See above options
Dinner: Vanilla Fresh Shake + 1 option from the Dinner Recipes List – All are vegetarian with a handmade vinaigrette! — I LOVED one of the salads so much I’m sharing the recipe next week!
Tea Break: If needed you can drink some more tea!
So as you can see you actually eat a lot! I never felt like I was starving at all, which is a deal breaker for me! I was expecting to suffer from a serious case of “Hangry” which is common with most detoxes I have tried.. But I never felt that hunger + angry feeling when you’re cutting out sugar! For the most part I felt good during the detox, the first couple days I was more tired than usual. But on the fourth day it was like I woke up as a brand new woman! I felt alive and my skin looked amazing! It really helped kick my “need” for sugar! Which was starting to be a daily need and a very vicious cycle.
No Meat or Cheese for 3 Days! This was tough! But to steal the best line of the hand book… You may not consume cheese but feel free to cut it if needs be. Which when I get to the “Ugly” portion, I can validate that statement…
All the shakes can only be mixed with water! No Almond Milk — Which didn’t really bother me too much, it’s only 3 days
The Fiber Sweep… Not my favorite! But if you just chug it down it’s totally doable. Just don’t let it sit too long!!! It becomes the consistency of a watery tapioca. Not good peeps!
You kind of have to plan ahead. Most of the other detoxes I’ve tried you can make a quick run to the store and purchase all your ingredients, but with the 3 day refresh you need to purchase the program from a beach body coach, then wait anxiously for it to be shipped.
You will have gas and you’re pipes will be cleaned! — The gas although it was somewhat of an issue, just ask Kel :/ I didn’t think they smelled. LOL!
Now for the results! — Holy crap! I was Ahh-mazed!!!
I would of done this cleanse just because I felt better and it helped me get back on track with eating clean! But I was really impressed by how much my body changed in just three short days! Crazy uh?!?!
If you want to get your hands on the 3 day Refresh – you can order using the link below! — When you order thru me- I will include as an added bonus a FREE 27 Day Eating Clean Meal Plan! + Recipes AND if you would like I can add you to a challenge group with others completing the program for extra support and accountability! We have a lot of fun! 😉
I can’t wait to see and hear about your results!!!!
