I completed the 3 Day Refresh this fall and LOVED it! I am ordering another one for me and my hubby today--who wants to do it with us? Read about my experience below :)
This was my first cleanse ever. I was hesitant to try one because I didn’t think I’d be able to handle all liquids for any length of time. While there were quite a few drinks in this cleanse, there was also food, and I really enjoyed that. My favorite things were the hummus and almond butter. MMMMMM. I think everyone’s main concern when thinking about a cleanse is “Were you starving??” No. For sure, I was not. I noticed that I was hungry in the evenings, around 7-8, and that is when I got a little tired, too. But not the STARVING, hunger pains, kind of hungry. Just a little hungry.
I noticed that, other than the evenings when I got sleepy, I had terrific energy and was in a great mood. (With the exception of the last day; I was pretty grumpy that day, but my son DID pee all over himself at the museum, so it’s hard to tell why I was in a bad mood exactly J ) I felt light and strong, and my skin was in better shape than it’s been in a long time. I also noticed that my teeth and gums felt cleaner. Seriously.
This is not a “poop all the time” cleanse. I had nice, normal poops each day. However, I DID pee constantly, which was semi-inconvenient. But we have to rid our bodies of those toxins somehow, right?
I was very pleased with the physical results of this program. My abs lost their puffy, sticking out appearance and my clothes fit better. I lost 5 pounds and 8 inches! But what I like the BEST about the 3 Day Refresh was that I learned how much self-control I have. I will not die if I don’t eat the cookie. I can survive without a piece of pizza. And it was really great to learn this about myself moving forward because I got lazy with my indulgences and instead of eating clean 80% of the time, it was moving towards 60%. This was a great way to refocus and learn that I CAN DO IT!
