Last week I decided to do the Shakeology cleanse with a friend of mine to kick those last few pesky pounds before a wedding last weekend. I was very hesitant to do this own my own but with a buddy it makes it so much easier. It was nice to have to someone to be accountable to when I was tired and hungry. The cleanse is 3 days long, you drink 3 shakes a day and for dinner you get to eat a big salad with 4 oz of white meat and unlimited vegetables and oil and vinegar dressing. You also get 1-2 pieces of fruit per day, which I added into my shakes. I drank lots of water and when I started to get hungry mid afternoon or evening I drank a glass of green tea and my hunger subsided. I must say that it wasn't nearly as bad as I expected. I was able to maintain my energy level and exercise all 3 days. On Day 1, I took my boys to play at Burger King's indoor play place and everyone was eating burgers and fries and I stuck to my water and chocolate shake. I scarfed down my chicken salad for dinner and had to go to bed early because I was hungry. Day 2 was much easier. I split up my fruit throughout the day, putting 1/2 piece of fruit in my morning shake and 1/2 piece for a snack. Then, at lunch I put 1/2 banana in my shake and used the other 1/2 in my snack shake. I drank my green tea in the afternoon and evening and had no problems making it through the day. I was already down 2 lbs. Day 3 was the hardest because we were leaving for a trip and I had to plan out my meals. I was able to stick to the cleanse and I lost a total of 3.5 lbs. My friend that I did the cleanse with lost 10 lbs! The amount of weight loss varies from person to person based on the amount of weight you have to lose and the amount of water your body holds. The best part about the whole thing is that I didn't gain it back. I continued eating clean and I did not over indulge and the weight stayed off!
The purpose of a cleanse is to jump start your weight loss program or break a plateau. I did mine to break a plateau. It was simple, easy and effective! I would highly recommend that you continue to drink 1 shake per day to maximize your weight loss potential in addition to an exercise schedule.
