The Shakeology Cleanse

What is “The Shakeology Cleanse?”
What makes the Shakeology Cleanse stand apart from the others is that the Shakeology cleanse is not a true "cleanse". One of the things that makes it so different from other "cleanses" is in fact that the Shakeology 3-Day Cleanse is a "performance" cleanse. This is because it is designed to be done along with a workout or fitness program. The Shakeology Cleanse is a calorie restricted, nutrient rich cleanse. There are no strange drinks made of maple and lemon or apple cider. With Shakeology you will be satisfied and you won't be a zombie or feel like you are starving your body of vital nutrients, because you aren't! The main point of the Shakeology Cleanse is not calorie restriction but nutrient richness. The aim is to get the most nutrients into your body with the fewest calories consumed. These calories are to fuel your workouts and rid the body of toxins and hydration into homeostasis. The result with this cleanse to have your body run more efficiently and the weight loss is just an added benefit that most experience (you can lose anywhere from 3lbs to 10lbs in just 3 days!!). More than anything, the way you feel when you are done with the cleanse is AMAZING!

The Benefits:
Are to rid your body of fat, detoxify your body, jump start your weight loss and fitness routine, and body rejuvenation.

How it Works:
With the Shakeology Cleanse your daily food structure remains close to the same as you’re everyday eating. You will still be eating every few hours with meals that are balanced and nutrient rich which will make up for consuming fewer calories. This means that you can still continue with your workout routine. Adding fruits, nuts, seeds, and the Shakeology fiber supplement can be done as you see fit. Your one solid meal a day, your salad, can also contain fruits, nuts, and seeds, legumes, and veggies along with four ounces or less of a white protein. The point is to keep you satiated and to avoid anything that is artificial - including your salad dressing. The Shakeology Cleanse is designed to optimize your body’s performance. You want to have enough food to fuel your day and your workout. By eating foods that are high in fiber and nutrients it is virtually impossible to overeat. With the high fiber, digestive aids, and enzymes, your body will be ridding itself of excess food and fat and flushing out waste.

Once again, this cleanse is meant to be done in conjunction with your regular fitness routine but best to schedule during your recovery weeks if you are doing an intense program like P90X or INSANITY. It is also a GREAT way to jump-start ANY fitness routine and weight loss by doing the cleanse the week before you begin and getting your body healthy!

All About the Weight Loss:
First, most people WILL lose some weight but weight loss is not the goal of the Shakeology Cleanse. People with a lot of junk in their systems tend to lose the most weight from this cleanse. If you've been eating clean then there are less toxins and food left in your system to be rid of. While you may not lose much weight while doing the cleanse, your body will be ready to lose once you have finished and continue your fitness program. Because it helps with these things it will also help with some of the regular bloating and water retention. Please remember that restricting calories can be stressful. Stress in the body releases the hormone cortisol and inhibits you from losing weight. For this reason, please do not do the cleanse for more than 3 days. 
Frequently Asked Questions:
How many calories per day? 800 - 1,100 per day
How often can I do the Shakeology Cleanse? Ideally you should do it once per quarter (every 3 months). The best times to do a shakeology cleanse are when you start a new workout program and when you feel you need help breaking through a weight-loss plateau.

Should I/Can I still do my workout during the Cleanse? It truly depends on the individual. You will have less energy, so consider doing it during your 'recovery' week and definitely don't do it in the middle of P90X or INSANITY. More than anything remember that you know your body better than anyone and if you are feeling too tired, than consider doing a light workout for those three days, walking, jogging, or swimming.

Can I do a 1-day or 2-day Cleanse? Yes, some people see results in 1 or 2 days! Just please remember to not do it longer! It is NOT recommended doing the Cleanse for longer than 3 days!

Should I/Can I take other Beachbody supplements during the Cleanse? Do not take the Beachbody Results and Recovery drink, because it has too much sugar and will affect the results of your cleanse. All of the other Beachbody supplements are fine but not necessary.
