I have been getting a lot of questions about this little plant based detox I toss into my routine a few times a year and I decided to tackle all the Q&A right here – for you – so you can decide if THIS could be something for YOU!
What is the refresh?
The 3- Day Refresh is a 3 day plant based cleanse that consists of 3 daily shakes, a fiber drink, plenty of filtered water, plus a wide variety of fresh fruits, veggies, and healthy fats though out the day to keep fueling your body and increasing your metabolism.
WHO is the refresh for?
The refresh is for anyone who:
- Wants to bust a plateau
- Kick a sugar cycle
- Drop a few pounds for a wedding
- Kick the bloat
- Ditch the bad habits forming
- Kickstart their weightloss journey
- Detox the toxins in their body
- Just give themselves a FRESH start
I personally find myself doing them post vacay to make sure the lose vacay habits, stay on vacation, to kick the bloat if I’ve been enjoying too many of the glutenous goodies that my digestive system don’t like, or just when its been a while and I want to REFOCUS on my nutrition habits.
What does the refresh entail?
1. Wake up- Drink 8-12 oz filtered water
2. Breakfast (within an hour of waking up)- Shakeology + fruit (from the list provided)
*Option for Green Tea – I prefer Iced Green tea and buy it in bulk online
3. Mid-morning- FIBER SWEEP (digestive health drink)
4. Lunch- Vanilla FRESH (high protein, hunger-satisfying shake) + options from the fruit, veggie, and healthy fat list
5. Afternoon snack- From the fruit, veggie, or juice option list
*Option for Green Tea
6. Dinner- Vanilla FRESH + a meal from dinner recipe list
*Option for Green Tea
Can I exercise on the 3 day refresh?
You can do light to moderate exercise, but I would avoid the heavy, intense workouts.
This is because the 3 -Day Refresh will use your energy more effectively to help cleanse your system if you are not, at the same time, taxing it with the effort of repairing muscle after an intense workout.
What to expect while on the Refresh:
This is NOT a starvation diet or an all-liquid diet, although it is low in calories (approx. 900-1000 a day). You should not feel starved since it is packed with fiber and protein and you are nourishing your body properly.
It is recommended that you drink tons of water, especially if you want the fiber to do its job right! How you know you get the right amount of water is by taking your weight / 2 and that number is how many ounces of water you should intake every day.
Example: If you weigh 150lbs…. 150/2= 75…. 75 ounces is what you would need every day (not including your water for your shakes) if you weighed 150 pounds.
Personally I aim for my body weight in ounces. The more water I drink the less likely I am to eat out of boredom opposed to truly being hungry!
Let’s do this TOGETHER!
