Shakeology 3-Day Cleanse
Shakeology is one of Beachbody’s best-selling products. It’s a dense dose of super-nutrition created from whole foods containing 23 essential vitamins and minerals. I’t s a great all-in-one balanced meal that helps you lose weight, increase your energy, promote digestion and regularity and improve your overall health. The Shakeology 3-Day Cleanse is a shorter version of the Shakeology Meal Replacement Weight Loss program and it offers many benefits in addition to a 3-5 lb. weight loss in only three days. It’s perfect when gearing up for a special event or to jumpstart your healthy routine again after falling off the bandwagon.
Shakeology 3-Day Cleanse Benefits
The Shakeology 3-Day Cleanse is not like traditional cleanses, restricting food intake to strictly liquids and limiting calories to unhealthy levels. Instead, the Shakeology 3-Day Cleanse allows 800-1100 calories of vegetables, fruits, lean proteins and of course Shakeology. With this cleanse, you don’t have to restrict your activity. The Shakeology 3-Day Cleanse is intended to be done in tandem with any of the Beachbody workout programs. Its main purpose is to provide the body with nutrients it is deficient in, replace the unhealthy toxins it is helping eliminate and prepare the body for weight loss and the commencement of a Beachbody workout program. Beachbody suggests doing the cleanse every three to four months in order to regularly rid the body of toxins that will continuously build up. After each three day period on the Shakeology Cleanse, you should feel an increase in energy, improved mood, less bloating and, most importantly, a weight loss of three to five pounds. One similarity between the Shakeology 3-Day Cleanse and other traditional cleanses is that, although it does not limit calories, it does help rid the body of unhealthy toxins. The body builds up an unhealthy level of toxins due to poor diets that include processed foods, preservatives, consumption of alcohol, sugary beverages, unhealthy fats and foods with additives. These toxins not only inhibit weight loss, they also cause fatigue, stress and various negative side effects. While on the 3 Day Cleanse, the body slowly eliminates the many toxins and replaces them with Shakeology’s vitamins, minerals and antioxidants.
How to do the Shakeology 3-Day Cleanse
Prior to beginning the Shakeology 3-Day Cleanse, choose a time you can fully commit. Weekdays may be a better option since weekends tend to include eating out, treating yourself to desserts and having a drink or two with friends. When you commit to starting the Shakeology 3-Day Cleanse, make sure you have the supplies you need ahead of time and get rid of temptations.

What is the difference between the Shakeology Cleanse and 3-Day Refresh?
The main difference: Shakeology 3-Day Cleanse is NOT a Beachbody-endorsed program, and the 3-Day Refresh is. When I first began coaching in 2014, the 3-Day Refresh was not available, but I had a lot of clients doing the 3-Day Shakeology Cleanse. Now that 3-Day Refresh is available, I lead groups on that because I believe it’s superior and more nutritionally balanced. With the 3-Day Refresh, you get a Fiber Sweep drink that will help rid your body of toxins that have built up in your digestive system. You also get a Vanilla Fresh shake that is higher in carbs and protein than Shakeology to provide more readily-available energy, and eliminates vitamins your body doesn’t need. A similar cleanse/detox can be achieved (without getting the 3-Day Refresh Kit) by using the Ultimate Reset DETOX supplement in place of Fiber Sweep and Beachbody Performance RECOVER in place of the Vanilla Fresh.
