I hope everyone is staying cool in this disgusting, humid weather. Unfortunately, here in NY it’s been rainy and HOT. (Fortunately… I guess depending on how you view it) this weather has made me want to step into gear and kick start my goals! I am leaving for Atlantic City on Saturday morning, so I wanted to try something that will make me feel less bloated and more energized.
Luckily, a close friend and fitness coach, introduced me to this 3 day cleanse. I thought that a cleanse is a great way to get rid of this pesky bloat and jumpstart my weight loss. So, I have decided to complete the Shakeology 3 day cleanse! Well, in this case, I will only be doing this for two days, since I began today and am leaving Saturday morning. **In September, I will be hosting a FREE month group for anyone trying to get back on track and this cleanse will be part of it! I’ll include more information about that in a future post**
I have been enjoying Shakeology for months now. I truly enjoy the richness and flavor of the shake. Shakeology shakes are very filling and, if blended with plenty of ice and fruit, they almost taste like dessert. A bonus is that the mix tastes great on it’s own – you can mix it with water and go! So, what is all the hype with Shakeology? It is an all natural protein mix created from whole food ingredients that contains 23 essential vitamins in minerals per serving. I like knowing if I enjoy a shake for breakfast that I am not missing any nutrients or vitamins.
The Shakeology 3 Day Cleanse is a great way to refresh your cravings and reduce bloat. An added benefit is losing a few pounds! The cleanse keeps your calories up and your not restricting yourself so your not starving. The three day cleanse encourages you to enjoy vegetables, fruits, lean proteins along with Shakeology shakes.
Foods and beverages on the shopping list:
- Shakeology shake mix
- Green tea
- Salad ingredients (lettuce, tomato, broccoli, celery, bell peppers, spinach and any leafy greens)
- Low fat dressing or homemade oil and vinegar dressing
- Lean proteins including fish, white meat chicken or white meat turkey
Foods and beverages to avoid:
- Added sugars
- Starches (rice, corn, potatoes, etc)
- Processed or canned foods
During the three days on the cleanse, you eat three meals per day, with two snacks in between. Breakfast and lunch consists of Shakeology shakes and dinner includes a salad with your choice of lean protein. I’ll be sharing my thoughts next week on how it goes!
