3 Day Refresh: lighten up

After finishing the 3 Day Refresh, I feel…lighter.  I lost 1.8 lbs during the 3 days, but more surprisingly, I lost an inch in my chest, waist and hips, plus at least half an inch in my arms and thighs.  I went through the program step by step, eating berries or apple with my Shakeology in the morning, the mid morning fiber sweep, a salad with my vanilla shake at lunch, hummus and veggies and tea during the afternoon, and a side of veggies with my dinner vanilla shake.  Plus, LOTS of water throughout the day.  Seriously, I had a 64 oz container filled with water that I drank and refilled many times over the last 3 days.  Here are opinions, comments and recommendations of using this specific detox.

3 Day Refresh

Today is the day!  I’m starting the 3 Day Refresh program from Beachbody.  I’ve been doing well with 2 rounds of the 21 Day Fix, losing 16.6 lbs and 10.25″ and staying on track with eating and exercise.  This is the first time I can say that I’ve exercised every day since the beginning of the year!  I ordered the 3 Day Refresh as a part of a challenge pack with my Shakeology order and decided to use it right before round 3 to make sure I look fabulous in my Valentine’s party dress next week.  (I’ll post pictures; don’t worry.)

The 3 Day Refresh is a detox program comprised of nutritious shakes and drinks made by the Beachbody nutritionists to give optimal cleansing to your system.  Unlike a juice fast, the drinks provide the right amounts of protein and fiber to help keep you feeling full and not put you body into starvation mode.  Aside from the provided shakes and my already owned Shakeology packets, there is a list of fruits, vegetables and healthy fats to eat, as well as a dinner menu to choose from to make this easy.  Below is my menu for the next 3 days.  After I finish, I’ll post my results and pictures with my honest opinions of how I felt about doing this and if I think I’ll do it again.
