On Monday, Nov. 10, I started a three-day Shakeology cleanse with my fellow coach, Kaycee. It consisted of three Shakeology shakes per day (made with only water/ice and nothing else, like dairy), two cups of green tea per day, one piece of fruit for snack, and a large salad with tons of veggies and oven-baked chicken for dinner with low-fat dressing.
The first two days were rough, because I was used to drinking at least two cups of coffee per day. I had terrible headaches, but I knew I was cleansing my system. I didn’t feel hungry during the day, although it was very hard to resist the food that my toddler was trying to feed me. YOU FOOD PUSHER, YOU.
Erm. Anyway. The results are now in! I love 1.8 pounds and 2.5 inches off my waist!
Would I do this again? Absolutely! I wouldn’t recommend heavy exercise in conjunction with this cleanse, but I think walking or jogging are fine. It’s a great way to get “back to basics” and it made me really appreciate the food that I ate today (the day after the cleanse). For breakfast I had some oatmeal, for lunch I had Shakeology, and I didn’t even bother with snacks or anything, because I wasn’t hungry!
