I will preface by saying that I love Shakeology and have been using it as my everyday breakfast for about 6 months. It truly is the best tasting shake I have ever tried (Chocolate flavor anyways). Most shakes taste "chalky" and have an aftertaste, Shakeology doesn't. It is a great way for me to get all my nutrients in one easy to make shake.
Now on to the Cleanse review.
I recently completed the 3 day Shakeology Cleanse. In just 3 days I lost 9 lbs. It was probably the easiest cleanse I have ever done, and I have done a few. I once did one that required you to take a bunch of pills with every meal and drink nasty tasting teas all the time. Not to mention you were in the bathroom every 10 minutes. I did another one that was 21 days long and all you could eat was fruits and vegetables. It was really tough because I absolutely despise vegetables.
The Shakeology cleanse is by far the easiest one I have done to date. You simply have 3 shakes, 2 cups of Green tea, a salad for Dinner with Chicken or White Fish and a Low fat salad dressing. You are also allowed one or two pieces of fruit for snacks during the day. You do this for 3 days and you will see results.
My first day was pretty straightforward. I had a Chocolate Shake for Breakfast, mixed with water and ice and a cup of Green Tea. The same for Lunch. A banana for a snack in the afternon. Dinner was a Spinach salad (i'm not a fan of lettuce so I substitute spinach in my salads) with Tilapia and a low fat French dressing. I then had a third shake a couple hours before bed.
Day 2 my meal plan was a carbon copy of Day 1 (if it ain't broke don't Fix it right?). Day 2 I struggled a little bit. I was hungry, not starving. But, the worst part was that I had a very dull headache from mid morning into the evening. I assume it was from my lack of caffeine, and the toxins leaving the body. That's the point of a cleanse after all.
Day 3 I felt great. I followed the same meal plan only switching up my shake at lunch with the Greenberry flavor. And, I ended up feeling so full after my dinner salad that I actually skipped my 3rd shake on day 3.
9 pounds lost
Finally under 250 lbs. again
