Shakelogy 3 Day Cleanse

I've heard so many great things about Shakeology & I'm excited to try it for myself! I am such a sugar addict and don't love my veggies, so I'm going to do a 3 day cleanse to jump start my system and eliminate the carbs from my system. Here's a look at what it entails, I'll share the results as I go along. (Now if only the UPS man would come so I could get started!!!)

  • 3 Shakeology shakes per day
  • 2 cups of green tea per day (I'm going to skip this, I don't like green tea)
  • 1 or 2 pieces of fruit per day (optional)
  • 1 salad for dinner-can include fish or poultry
  • No dairy or extra sugars (this includes almond and soy milk)!
  • Drink 2 to 4 liters of water every day
  • Only use low-fat dressings, and go easy on the salt and/or pepper to taste
  • 2 snacks before/after any of the major meals (breakfast, lunch, and dinner)
  • Fruit is optional, and it is discouraged (however, some of you will need the calories while others may not)
  • Power-workout participants (those who are already super conditioned) are recommended the higher numbers of calories
  • For maximum results, do NOT use additives
  • Dinner salad may include WHITE GRILLED PROTEIN-poultry or fish only

 Daily Regimen:
  • 1 cup of green tea to start the day
  • Breakfast:
    • 1 scoop Shakeology (140 calories)
    • 1/2 cup of fruit (60 to 90 calories)-optional
    • Ice to taste
    • 8 to10 oz. of water
  • Snack 1 (85 calories):
    • 1 piece of fruit (apple, pear, orange, banana mango, etc.)
  • Lunch:
    • 1 scoop Shakeology (140 calories) Ice to taste 8 to 10 oz. of water 1 cup of green tea or a detox tea
  • Snack 2:
    • (you can have the second snack before or after dinner) 1 scoop Shakeology (140 calories) Ice to taste 8 to10 oz. of water
  • Dinner:
    • Salad with grilled white fish or poultry (roughly 340 calories)
    • Greens-3 servings of vegetables, plus 4 oz. of grilled white meat (fish or poultry)
    • 2 tablespoons of dressing-no more!

Here are some FAQs:
  • How many calories per day?
    • 800 to 1,100 calories per day
  • How often can I do the Shakeology 3-Day Cleanse?
    • Ideally, you should do it once per quarter (every 3 months)
    • As the seasons change
    • When you start a new workout program
    • When you feel you need help breaking through a plateau
  • Should/Can I still do my workouts during the Cleanse?
    • Depends on the individual
    • You'll have less energy, so consider doing it during your recovery week
    • Don't do it in the middle and advanced workout program like P90X or Insanity
  • Can I do a 1-day or a 2-day cleanse instead of a 3-day?
    • Yes, some people will see results in one or two days!
    • It is not recommended to do the cleanse for longer than 3 days.

    • No Beachbody Recovery Drink as it as too much sugar.
    • All other Beachbody supplements are not necessary but won't hurt.
