What is Beachbody’s 3 Day Refresh

WHAT IS THE 3-DAY REFRESH™?
The 3 Day Refresh is a scientifically designed program that helps you kick-start healthy eating, give your kidneys and liver a break from working overtime, and get a clean break from bad nutrition habits. The 3 Day Refresh is a simple, straightforward program that will help cleanse your body and improve the way you feel—without starving yourself. Unlike juice cleanses or liquid fasts which tend to be high in sugar and low in protein (leaving you feeling weak, hungry, and sluggish), this easy-to-follow program helps support your metabolism while nourishing your vital organs.

For 3 days you’ll follow a program of 3 shakes a day, a fiber drink, plenty of filtered water, plus a wide array of fresh fruits, vegetables, and healthy fats throughout the day to keep your energy and metabolism going.

I, being somewhat skeptical, decided to give it a try and see for myself what all the hype was about.

The Daily Routine:
Each day started with Shakeology (you can choose your flavor) + a serving of fruit. I really enjoy my Shakeology (Chocolate is my favorite flavor), so this was a great way to start the day!
Next up was the mid-morning Fiber Sweep. Not my favorite taste, but you drink it so fast that it doesn’t really make a difference what it tastes like. TIP: Use extra cold water, mix and drink right away – DO NOT let it sit!
For lunch you get to have a serving of veggies, fruit, and a healthy fat + the Vanilla Fresh shake. Easy and delicious.
There are great selections for your mid-afternoon snack included in the Program booklet that comes with the 3 Day Refresh. I opted for carrots and hummus (yum!).
Dinner was another Vanilla Fresh shake + one of the meals included in the Program booklet. I had the asparagus and almonds one of the nights, and the cucumber and tomato salad the other 2 nights. All the meals looked delicious!

My results:
I lost 3.5 lbs and 1.5 inches off my waist in just 3 days!
It has been 2 weeks since I finished my 3-day refresh cleanse. I have continued drinking Shakeology daily, and have kept the weight off as well as losing an additional 2 lbs.

The Verdict:
Beachbody’s 3 Day Refresh delivered everything it promised! After the 3 days, I felt much less bloated and had a lot more energy. I was a little hungry on Day 1, but learnt how to space out my meals, snacks, and shakes so that I could be eating something every few hours. My focus was to get healthy and to get a kickstart on changing some bad eating habits, so weight-loss was not my focus or first goal (but an extra perk).

Would I recommend this? Yes, absolutely! Make sure you drink a lot of water, follow the program exactly, and don’t do intense workouts during these 3 days. I also highly recommend continuing with Shakeology for the rest of the month after completing the cleanse, it has really made a big difference for me, and I attribute the additional 2lb weight loss to this change in my diet.

WHEN IS THE BEST TIME TO DO THE 3 DAY REFRESH?
You can use it anytime you want to kickstart a cleaner diet, get rid of the bloat, and just give your body a break from bad habits. You are not starving your body, in fact you are nourishing it on such a deep level and fueling it properly for those 3 days, so it is a completely safe and healthy way to reboot and recharge. You may choose to do it once a month to keep your habits sharp and your body healthy, or once every 2-3 months as a way to refocus your eating habits, recharge, and lose that bloated feeling.

Give it a try and see what you think! Beachbody offers a 30-day money back guarantee, so it is completely risk free!
