I got a SEVERAL messages from my past clients who were asking about my annual post-Halloween detox-so here you have it friends!!!
If you’re already anticipating getting caught in the sugar addiction/downward spiral that comes post Halloween —I invite YOU to come join our team’s 3 Day Refresh Kickoff group next week (you choose your 3 days, November 5-9)
The group is for my girls who want to lose 3-8 lbs by following a 3 day plant based gentle detox (And no no, it’s not one of THOSE detox things 💩)
-Yes you can do this while at work.
-No you won’t spend all day in the bathroom.
-Yes you actually EAT FOODS
-No you won’t be starving OR drinking only liquids
-Yes you can expect to kick the boost, drop a few lbs, and of course feel FRESH come day 3!
If you are interested in the deets, fill out the application below!
I will provide you with a sample meal plan for the detox, provide you with a source of accountability so you won’t be in this alone, and help you make sure you don’t just lose weight and gain it right back but follow a lifestyle that’s going to allow you to MAINTAIN your results!!!
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!
You can purchase this cleanse in its ENTIRETY in a 3 day kit
You can bundle it with my favorite superfood shake for a month – so you’re not just rocking the 3 days but CONTINUING to focus on your nutriton and maintain the results in the weeks (and hopefully beyond!) that follow!
6 weeks down and 2 to go! I can’t believe I am in the homestretch!!!
This last week was a little different but challenging yet still!
I had an absolutely AMAZING weekend in the ‘burgh for Pittsburgh’s Super Friday and our Dream Team Celebration Saturday.
I got to meet our CEO Carl Daikeler:
I got to meet AND workout with the creator of the 21-day fix – Autumn Calabrese and try out her new 21-day fix EXTREME:
Of course we worked out…
But we also celebrated and ate, and ate, and ate some more!
So needless to say I needed a jumpstart for week 6 – enter a simple little cleanse – the 3-day REFRESH!
Sometimes its hard to get back in the swing of things. I’m a routine type of person. Keep me on my routine and I’m as happy as can be. Stray from that – and watch out! It wasn’t easy jumping back in…I could feel the bad nutrition choices lingering in my body but I knew the easiest way was to JUST DO IT – so I did!
Monday was a typical day and then I started the 3-day refresh on Tuesday. The guide says to do “moderate exercise” so I stayed with the modifier in Insanity Max: 30 on both Wednesday and Thursday but went full out Friday morning – what can I say I was feeling REFRESHED!!!
If you haven’t heard of this yet or given it a try – please consider it! I am not big on diets, cleanses etc… but this is different!
