My Kick Start to Healthier Eating Habits with the 3 Day Refresh

Screenshot 2014-07-02 11.20.16So I’m on Day 2 of this 3 day Refresh.

One thing you will NOT hear me talk about is the amount of weight I’ve lost in this 3 day cleanse. I’m not a believer in “quick fixes”.  I see this more as a wonderful “jump start” into a clean eating regimen.  

Why I am Doing the 3 Day Refresh 

It helps to recalibrate my mindset into a higher level of discipline.  It’s great to know that for at least 3 days of each month, my body will not be subjected to anabolic supplements, coffee, alcohol, dairy, meat, gluten, etc.  It’s just a nice way to cleanse my body and give my G.I. tract a breather 🙂

I’m not gonna lie, Day 1 was rough.  I wasn’t super hungry, but “really” weak.  I think it’s because of my PiYo morning workout.
So far, today is much better.  Feeling more alert, focussed and refreshed.

What’s included?

• 3 packets of Shakeology®—your choice of 6 flavors (we recommend Chocolate Vegan or Tropical Strawberry 
Vegan during the Refresh as plant proteins are often easier for the body to digest)
• 6 packets of Vanilla Fresh (high-protein shake)
• 3 packets of Fiber Sweep (digestive drink) 
• 1 Program Guide

What does one eat and drink while Refreshing?

• FILTERED WATER: In addition to the water you use in your shakes and teas, we recommend you drink at least half your body weight in ounces of filtered water each day. 
• BREAKFAST: A superfood-packed Shakeology shake, plus one fruit option
• MORNING TEA: 1 cup of unsweetened herbal or green tea 
• LATE MORNING: Fiber Sweep, a digestive health drink
• LUNCH: Vanilla Fresh shake, plus 1 option from the Fruit List, 1 option from the Vegetable List, and 1 option from the Healthy Fats list
• AFTERNOON SNACK: 1 option from Vegetable List, and 1 option from the Healthy Fats list
• AFTERNOON TEA: 1 cup of unsweetened herbal tea (caffeine-free) 
• DINNER: Vanilla Fresh shake, 1 option from the Dinner Recipes, and 1 cup of organic vegetable broth (optional)
• EVENING TEA: 1 cup of unsweetened herbal tea (caffeine-free)

When Is The Best Time To Do The 3-Day Refresh?

You can use it anytime. I personally use it as a kick-start a cleaner diet. Maybe after a long weekend of eating everything in sight. When you want your clothes to fit a little looser. Before, during, or after a workout regimen. You may choose to do it once a month like I plan on doing.  This will keep your habits sharp and your body healthy. You can pretty much do the 3-Day Refresh whenever you feel like recharging.
