Think of this as a “Do Over” for your body. Like, old school Nintendo where you hit the “Reset” button and then pull out the game and blow into it like 7x to get it working right? That’s exactly what the 3 Day Refresh is, but for your body. Sometimes you just need to clean out all the crap, blow out all the dust, and start fresh.
So that’s what I did! I hit RESET!
Here’s how it works. When you get the package it comes with detailed instructions of what to eat/drink and when to make your specialty drinks. There’s 4 different drinks you make during the day.
Morning: Shakeology with fruit Plus Black Coffee & Green Teas
Mid Morning: Fiber Sweep
Lunch: Vanilla Fresh with fruit. Veggie + Healthy Fat (avo plus sea salt & pepper, yum-o!)
Snack: Veggie + Healthy Fat 5 asparagus with a tsp of EVOO
Dinner: Vanilla Fresh, plus a specific menu item, with lots of water throughout the day. I did 1.5 cups of veggies with 1/2 tbs of EVOO.
The food is specific but there’s a big list to choose from & the recipes are simple to follow.
No, you can’t have TWIX bar, hamburger, French fries, dairy, sugar, candy or crap. It’s REAL. You’re eating vegetables, fruit and healthy fats. Healthy? And Fat? In the same sentence?? How does that work? Did you know you’re not supposed to have more than a ¼ (2 Tbsp) of avocado a day? Think about the last time you had guacamole. Light bulb go off?? You probably at the whole tub right? I always do. I seriously LOVE me some Guac!
What really sunk in while completing 3 Day Refresh, is that I really don’t need massive quantities. I can survive and be content on eating smaller amounts. The truth is, the right foods fill you up. You’re not hungry 5 minutes later AND you can eat so much more of them.
Cleansing isn’t something to do every day, every week or even every month. The last time I did this was in August. So I’d say 2x a year is what works for me. I personally can’t do juice cleanses or that one with the lemon, maple syrup and cayenne pepper? What is that all about!? NOT my jam. I need to eat! I need to feel the crunch of food in my mouth and in my belly. I need sustenance and I need to not feel deprived. I’m not a Dr. or nutritionist, nor do I pretend to be. But I do know how my body feels. I know what it needs. This works for me.
Now I’m ready to continue on with my next program, 21 Day Fix Extreme. The portion control container system is the same as 21 Day Fix, Insanity Max 30, Core De Force, Country Heat and the other programs that utilize the container system. The difference is THIS TIME I’m sticking to it! THIS TIME I’m going ALL IN! Can’t wait to show you all my progress.
Update! When I wrote this I was happy and half way through day 1. Be sure to read my blog post titled "Cleansing and the Devil" to get the REAL down low on cleansing :).
