Shakeology 3 Day Cleanse: Our Review

3 day cleanse logoAlthough we usually only do meal replacement reviews on our website, many of our readers have been asking us about the Shakeology Cleanse so we decided to take a closer look.

We published our review of the Shakeology shake at the end of 2011 and since then have had some really positive feedback from our readers about this product.

For people who haven’t heard of Shakeology it is a meal replacement shake from a company called BeachBodies who sell their products through a network of Independent ‘Coaches’ or distributors. It’s not cheap, but is packed with nutrients to create a ‘complete’ meal replacement. In-fact there are over 70 different whole-food based ingredients and comes in a range of different flavours (which actually taste ok)

What is the Shakeology 3 Day Cleanse?

The Shakeology Cleanse is a program that the company offers for people who want to help their body get rid of toxin and impurities and also accelerate their weight loss efforts.

It aims to bring your body back in to balance and help you create a lean, healthy body.

It is usually completed as a three day program, you have a shake for breakfast and lunch and a low calorie, healthy meal in the evening. You are also recommended to consume low calorie snacks during the day to boost your metabolism and drink organic green tea.

You need to avoid caffeine, stimulants, alcohol, processed foods and any foods which have been refined or are not in their natural state. These are not only unhealthy, but also difficult for the body to process – during these times you want to give the body a break and let if focus on cleansing, not digesting.

Why Cleanse?

woman losing weightWe live in a toxic world and are surrounded by chemicals, poor quality foods, pollution and other toxins which enter the body on a daily basis. Although the body is an amazing machine and the liver and other organs work hard to process and remove toxins, it can become overloaded. Once toxins get backed up your body can become stagnant, sluggish and you may experience a lack of energy, weight issues and other health problems.

Cleansing, which people have been doing to centuries, gives the body a break and provides it with the nutrients it needs to get back to its peak.

It is widely accepted in the alternative medicine community, as well as by many mainstream Doctors that we need to cleanse regually (for example every six months) in order to maintain optimum health.

Shakeology Cleanse Benefits

People complete the 3 day shakeology cleanse for a number of reasons, but the most common reason is to lose weight. Although now studies have been completed the average weight loss from our readers is between three and five pounds over the 3 day period which is quite impressive.

  • People also experience other benefits including
  • Increased energy levels
  • Better skin
  • Improved overall health and wellness

Our Thoughts on the Shakeology Cleanse

We were a bit sceptical before we looked at the Shakeology Cleansing program, as we thought it was a marketing exercise rather than a credible program, however we were pleasantly surprised.

Although meal replacement shakes are a really effective way to lose weight, and many people experience impressive results using them, some people need something more than just diet and exercise to shift those extra pounds and cleansing really does seem to work.

Plus our world is toxic and our bodies are under stress, and we all need to cleanse our bodies of these impurities on a regular basis.
