My mom recently did Beachbody’s 3-Day Cleanse the ReFresh detox. I asked her to share her honest opinion after trying it last week.
I know that in the fitness business people are constantly pushing quick fixes & cleanses. I’m not a believer in quick fixes..period. Cleanses…I’m no fan of. I think you can “cleanse” yourself, by eating the right foods over a period of time. With that being said, I needed to do something after Kalee’s wedding, the 4th of July, and my birthday!!
Since Kalee’s wedding, I had been eating more and more off of my 90/10 path. I mean I felt personally compelled not to let any of the leftover Gigi’s Cupcakes go to ruin after the wedding…eating one to two of those bad boys a day for a week!!! (we ordered WAY too many cupcakes!!).
I knew there had been talk of the ReFresh product launched at the Beachbody Coach Summit, but having done the sugar detox not too long ago, I can honestly tell y’all I wasn’t in a hurry to jump into another “eating thing”. However, when I stepped on the scale, I decided while I knew what to do, my body, my heart, and my mind just wasn’t in the right mode to start eating 90/10 again. I had gotten to that scary point of “ugh!! I’ll never see results…why do I care? Eat whatever you want!!” That, my friends, is called denial.
I KNOW you can’t see results unless you eat well. I KNOW you can’t fuel your body with junk and expect to feel good, but I had eaten so much junk at this point, I had hit that wall. Have you been there, too? With that realization, I bought the ReFresh detox kit…not so much to lose weight (although, trust me, I needed to. I hadn’t weighed this much in 10 years!)…but I got the kit so I could get my attitude back into place.
Day 1 was easy!!! Durn though…I had just weighed and after seeing that number on the scale and not being able to fit easily into my “loose” jeans anymore, I was one determined woman.
Day 2…I was a little hungry, but in my defense, I did two workouts this day: PiYo Define Lower and ChaLean Extreme Push 1. Come Day 3, I knew I had it. I mean I had completed 2 days, there was no way I was going to blow it now.
So…you say, “your story is sweet & all, but Kim, get to the nitty gritty. Tell me about the actual ReFresh Detox program already!!!”
What Do You Get to Eat on the Refresh Detox?
Well, You start off with Shakeology for breakfast with some fruit. Then about mid morning you have another shake called “fiber sweep”. It sounds way scarier than it was. It doesn’t send you running to the bathroom…no joke, no lie…no panic.
Then lunch is a Refresh Vanilla protein shake along with another fruit, some veggies and a healthy fat. They give you a list of some to pick from and how much of each you can have. Mid-afternoon you get a veggie snack with a healthy fat.
Supper is another Refresh Vanilla shake along with a veggie dinner & healthy fat. They give you a few veggie recipes to pick from if you need some ideas. Mid morning and mid-afternoon, you can add in an optional green tea. Also, with supper, you can have a broth. You really don’t starve at all. Like I said, I was more hungry on Day 2, but it’s probably because my workout was tougher. I did just one PiYo workout on both Days 1 & 3.
ReFresh Detox – Refresh Beachbody’s 3-Day Cleanse Results
I honestly don’t know if my results are typical. I had not eaten so well since the wedding and through to my birthday, so on that Monday, I was not too thrilled with what the scale said. Regardless if it was water weight from sodium or not, I don’t care…the scale had a number on it that I haven’t seen in a LONG time. Now, I feel better not only physically, but I also feel better about being back on track to eating my normal healthy way.
My ReFresh results??
I lost 6.2 pounds total!!!!
It takes so little to get us off track with our eating and working out, so no…I don’t think this is a miracle fix or anything, but I do highly recommend the ReFresh detox if you are needing to reset your brain, your body, your attitude and also possibly lose a few pounds. I know that I will have to continue to eat right and continue my PiYo/ChaLean workouts to keep losing and to keep toning, but the ReFresh got me out of my funk, and the weight loss help to motivate me to work harder. It’s been a week, and the weight is still off.
Not sure? Check out the video below it explains the ReFresh is more scientific terms.
Have a late night munchie?? Or even still hungry after dinner? After dinner is usually when my sweet tooth kicks in, and I’m wanting something sweet.
I love this Protein P.M. Fix Smoothie for a satisfying, guilt free treat!
Protein P.M. Fix Smoothie
6 oz skim milk
1/4 cup low-fat cottage cheese
1 T reduced fat natural peanut butter
1 scoop of whey protein isolate powder (or chocolate Shakeology)
Honey to taste (optional)
Blend all items in a blender until desired consistency
The Low Down on the Guilt Free Ingredients
I know, you’re thinking…Cottage cheese? Really? Seriously! I cannot stand cottage cheese on it’s own or with fruit, but I do like it in a smoothie. It makes it really creamy. Plus cottage cheese is going to be packed with protein which helps fuel your muscles, and it also keeps your full.
I also use Shakeology instead of just a plain whey protein isolate powder. I like Shakeology because it’s low-glycemic which helps with my blood sugar before bed. I also like that it has digestive enzymes and probiotics in it. (Read my full review here or order Shakeology here)
You can also use Stevia to sweeten the guilt free smoothie as well. The skim milk and banana will also help sweeten the smoothie up naturally as well.
What do you crave at night?
