Shakeology 3 Day Cleanse
Many people have experienced excellent results with a Shakeology Cleanse. The goal with a Shakeology Cleanse is to flush all of the junk from your system and regulate hydration levels. With a Shakeology Cleanse you will experience weight loss, but it is more about purging toxins and replenishing your entire system with vitamins, minerals, and nutrients. People that have done the cleanse have reported losing anywhere from 2-10 lbs. Furthermore, keep in mind a Shakeology Cleanse is not a harsh cleanse, but a nutrient rich cleanse meaning that you can continue to exercise and go about your normal daily activities while having more energy. It’s the perfect program for anyone who wants a 3 day jump start to looking and feeling better.
Read on to see what Steve Edwards, a Fitness and Nutrition Advisor at Beachbody had to say about the Shakeology 3-Day Cleanse…
I like to call the Shakeology 3-Day Cleanse a “performance cleanse.” This is because it was designed to be done with a workout program. Let’s take a look at how this differs from other cleanses, how to tailor it to your needs,and what to expect if you or your customers decide to try it. First of all, it’s not a true cleanse. It’s a calorie-restricted and nutrient-dense diet plan. Traditional cleanses contain very few calories and nutrients. Compared to the much more popular Master Cleanse, it’s like an all-you-can-eat buffet. Traditional cleansing diets are done to rid your system of toxins and bring it into homeostasis. They also contain a spiritual aspect. This process can take a long time, which is why you may have seen coworkers walking around the office in a zombie-like state for weeks on end—swilling a strange concoction of lemons and maple syrup. The Shakeology cleanse is nothing like that. Depending on how you decide to do it, you’ll be eating frequently and consuming between 800 and 1,200 calories per day, and it could be even more should you feel the need.The point of this cleanse is not calorie restriction, per se—it’s nutrient efficiency. The aim is to get the most nutrients possible into the fewest number of calories. The goal is to put all of these calories to use as a part of your exercise program, to rid your body of undigested foods and toxins, and to bring your hydration levels into homeostasis. The result you’re after is not weight loss—though it will likely occur—but for your body to be running more efficiently. This should make you feel lighter and more energetic, even though you’re doing an exercise program.
HOW IT WORKS Your eating structure doesn’t change. You still eat every few hours while you’re awake. Each meal should have abalance of proteins, carbohydrates, fats, and fiber. And while you’re not eating as much food as you’d normally eat, your calorie-to-nutrient ratio is extremely high. This means that you shouldn’t restrict the actual nutrients you’re getting by too much, so activity can continue as normal. We recommend you try to keep your shakes to just Shakeology. Adding fruits of any kind, or seeds (for fat and fiber), or the Shakeology Fiber supplement, can and should be done as you see fit. Ditto for your one solid meal—a salad. As we all know from any salad bar, the definition of salad can be varied. The goal of the salad in the plan is to keep your calories coming from natural sources (no artificial ingredients should be added, including artificial salad dressing). Aside from that, you can add ingredients as necessary. Keep your meat intake to four ounces or less, but add veggies, seeds,nuts, fruits, and legumes in quantities to satiate you. The goal of the Shakeology 3-Day Cleanse is to optimize your performance. You want to eat enough to fuel your day AND your workout. The foods you’re eating are so high in fiber and nutrients that it’s virtually impossible to overeat. You’ll be consuming so much fiber, along with enzymes and digestive aids, that your body’s ability to flush excess foods quickly will be at its peak.
