Shakeology 3 Day Cleanse

Want to lose 3-10 lbs in 3 days and cleanse your body of preservatives? You HAVE to try this cleanse :)

What is the Shakeology Cleanse and What makes it different from other cleanses?!?

What makes the Shakeology Cleanse stand apart from the others is that the Shakeology cleanse is not a true "cleanse". The Shakeology Cleanse is a calorie restricted, nutrient rich cleanse. There are no strange drinks made of maple and lemon or apple cider. With Shakeology you will be satisfied and you won't be a zombie or feel like you are starving your body of vital nutrients, because you aren't! The main point of the Shakeology Cleanse is not calorie restriction but nutrient richness. The aim is to get the most nutrients into your body with the fewest calories consumed. These calories are to fuel your workouts and rid the body of toxins and hydration into homeostasis. The result with this cleanse to have your body run more efficiently and the weight loss is just an added benefit that most experience (you can lose anywhere from 3lbs to 10lbs in just 3 days!!).

The Benefits of the Shakeology 3-Day-Cleanse:
  • Rid your body of fat
  • Detoxify your body
  • Jump start your weight loss and fitness routine
  • Body rejuvenation

How does the Shakeology Cleanse work?

With the Shakeology Cleanse your daily food structure remains close to the same as you’re everyday eating. You will still be eating every few hours with meals that are balanced and nutrient rich which will make up for consuming fewer calories. This means that you can still continue with your workout routine. Adding fruits, nuts, seeds, and the Shakeology fiber supplement can be done as you see fit. Your one solid meal a day, your salad, can also contain fruits, nuts, and seeds, legumes, and veggies along with four ounces or less of a white protein. The point is to keep you satiated and to avoid anything that is artificial - including your salad dressing. The Shakeology Cleanse is designed to optimize your body’s performance. You want to have enough food to fuel your day and your workout. By eating foods that are high in fiber and nutrients it is virtually impossible to overeat. With the high fiber, digestive aids, and enzymes, your body will be ridding itself of excess food and fat and flushing out waste.

Shakeology 3-Day Cleanse Explained:

The Shakeology 3-day cleanse is an innovative way to use Shakeology as a cleanse. It's very simple to follow and is unlike any other cleanse out there today. One of the things that makes it so different from other "cleanses" is in fact that the Shakeology 3-Day Cleanse is a "performance" cleanse. This is because it is designed to be done along with a workout or fitness program. Here is how it works and how to follow:

Once again, this cleanse is meant to be done in conjunction with your regular fitness routine but best to schedule during your recovery weeks if you are doing an intense program like P90X or INSANITY. It is also a GREAT way to jump-start ANY fitness routine and weight loss by doing the cleanse the week before you begin and getting your body healthy!

Reasons why you might not lose weight:

First, most people WILL lose some weight but weight loss is not the goal of the Shakeology Cleanse. People with a lot of junk in their systems tend to lose the most weight from this cleanse. If you've been eating clean then there are less toxins and food left in your system to be rid of. While you may not lose much weight while doing the cleanse, your body will be ready to lose once you have finished and continue your fitness program.

Second, restricting calories can be stressful. Stress in the body releases the hormone cortisol and inhibits you from losing weight. This is the reason why you don't do the Shakeology Cleanse no longer than 3 days.
A 3 day Shakeology Cleanse costs $45.

Stop worrying and have FAITH!

**Long post alert, but worth the read in my opinion!**
SHARE if you know someone who needs to hear this right now. We don't always know why certain things happen, when they happen, but if we just have faith and make the best of it, then everything will work out! I promise! I remember when I first got pregnant with my little Pete, I thought it was the end of the world! I was still in college, cheerleading for Virginia Tech, having fun with friends... living the "dream"!! How could this happen to me? Why was I so careless? I didn't understand and thought I'd never graduate from college, thought I'd lose all my friends...but once I let go of my fears and doubts and really embraced the miracle that was about to take place in my life... I realized that this all happened for a reason. I wasn't aware of it at the time, but getting pregnant with this little angel was the most amazing, life-changing moment in my life!! I am where I am today, because of that moment. That "irresponsible" decision that I thought was going to bring my life and success to a halt, actually ended up being the complete OPPOSITE!! Thanks to my amazing family and friends, who have always stood by me and supported me. They helped babysit Pete so I could earn my Bachelor's degree from George Mason University, they've supported me on my decision to start my own beachbody business and I think some of my family and friends have even learned a little of their own through my experiences. Again, I guess the point I'm just trying to make is that instead of letting fear and doubt bring you down when you're facing a tough time in life... have faith and trust in God, trust in yourself and believe that whatever tough time you may be experiencing at that very moment, will one day be a huge life lesson! You will learn from it and you will grow from it, if you let yourself! Don't get down on yourself and let negative thoughts consume you. Kick that bad energy out and think of ways that you can turn it into something positive and life-changing! That's my rant for the day, so I hope everyone has an amazing Tuesday! (Wear plenty of layers if you're going out... because it is FRR-RRR-EEEZING out!) ~Crystal
