Shakeology is one of the best-selling products in the markets today and that is for a good reason. It is a natural and nutritious health shake with its ingredients coming from superfoods containing almost 23 vitamins and minerals per serving. These ingredients are combined to create a balanced meal that helps you in losing weight and keeping your body healthy.
The shakeology cleanse plan is designed to get rid of undigested foods, toxins, and to efficiently help your body run smoothly. This program will help you feel lighter, gain loads of energy and automatically lose some weight.
When you talk about weight loss, so many people want a quick fix to help them drop the extra pounds. Shakeology offers a perfect and healthy solution for that quick weight loss fix. Shakeology has a short program out of the whole 30-day meal replacement that only goes for 3 days. It is known as shakeology 3 day cleanse. It carries with it a lot of other benefits apart from losing 3 – 5 pounds in just 3 days.
During the 3 days shakeology cleansing period, you are required to replace at least 2 major meals with a shakeology protein drink. Beachbody does not recommend replacing more than 1 meal but because it is for a short period of time, it is okay because it will not bring harm to your body. The main goal of the shakeology cleanse is to enhance your body’s performance.
Before starting the cleanse it is important to confirm that you will fully commit to the program for the 3 stated days. I would advise that this cleanse is taken during the weekdays or when you are not busy and just at home during the weekdays. When you decide to go for it during the weekends, you might end up not honoring it since you will be out there with friends catching some beer or junk snacks.
Ensure that you have all the required items for the shakeology cleanse in your refrigerator and if possible hide any other item that may distract you. You will require water, tofu, fruits (only when on a workout program), shakeology mix shake, green tea, vinegar, lean proteins like fish, turkey, or chicken, salad ingredients like lettuce, tomatoes, spinach, kales, or any other vegetables.
Some of the beverages and foods to avoid are; dairy, added sugars, bread, starches like rice and potatoes, processed and canned foods. Make sure that you take 3 shakeology shakes a day, 2 cups of green tea a day, 1 – 2 pieces of fruits though it is optional, 1 salad during dinner (can include fish or poultry), drink 2 – 4 liters of water a day, and lastly 2 snacks before or after any major meal.
This is an example of how a typical shakeology 3 days cleanse should look like:
Ø Take 1 cup of green tea immediately after waking up
Ø Then take 1 shakeology shake blended with either ice or water (your choice)
Ø Have one piece of fruits. Can be apples, citrus fruits, or anything that contains low glycemic
Ø Have 1 shakeology shake blended with either ice or water
Ø And a 1 cup of green tea
Ø You can decide to have a fruit at this time or after dinner as desert
Ø And 1 shakeology shake blended with either ice or water
Ø Take a salad with at least 3 servings of leafy green vegetables, tomatoes, broccoli, or peppers
Ø Have it with low-fat dressing of not more than 2 tablespoons
Ø 4 ounces of lean protein which may be fish, chicken, turkey, or tofu
Although this cleanse is only for 3 days, it is advisable to have it repeated every 3 to 4 months so as to help the body flush out unhealthy toxins that lead to accumulation of weight.
