Shakeology Cleanse Review

Coming out of the holidays and continuing into the winter I realized my diet has not been the best. Realizing that summer is coming up quickly, I decided to reset my system by doing a Shakeology 3 day cleanse. I drink Shakeology everyday religiously, but I wanted to do a quick purge and thought this might be a good way.

In the past I have tried fasting as well as the Master Cleanse (Lemonade diet). I’ve also done the 2 day fast that Beachbody offer as well but in comparison to all of those this was the most enjoyable experience out of all.

The essence of the cleanse is such –

  • Drink Shakeology 3 times a day with only water and ice – Breakfast , Lunch and a snack between Lunch and dinner.
  • Eat a piece of fruit as a snack between Breakfast and Lunch.
  • Salad with 4 oz of lean protein (white meat chicken or fish) for dinner.
  • Drink Green Tea twice a day

A typical day would be –

Breakfast – Shakeology
Drink – Tea
Snack – Piece of fruit
Lunch – Shakeology
Snack – Shakeology
Dinner – Salad with 4 oz of chicken or fish with light dressing
Drink – Tea

After following this for 3 days, I lost 8 pounds and felt much lighter and less bloated. I also had some benefits that I wasn’t expecting -

I usually drink Shakeology with fruit and low fat coconut milk mixed in. I actually found my taste buds readjusting to enjoying it with just ice and water. I haven’t drunk it that way in a long time and forgot how good it tasted. It’s lighter and still sustains me as a meal replacement.

A greater appreciation for tea. I’m not a tea drinker, but after 3 days, I really appreciated the taste of green teas and have since incorporated it into my daily routine.

Salads taste great! I’m not a huge salad fan, but when that is your food option, you really enjoy all the tastes in a salad.

I was also able to keep up my workouts over the 3 days. I lowered the intensity, but I felt good through them. I was never really hungry or sluggish which I have experience on other cleanse programs. You do start to miss solid foods, but that is where you really start to look forward to the salad.

Overall I had a very positive experience.  If you are trying to decide between this or the 2 day cleanse from Beachbody, I highly recommend this option.
