Sometimes you just need a plan that will help you break patterns, debloat, or beat a plateau. You know when you feel SO STUFFY internally and constantly bloated and puffy? That was me 4 days back. I was feeling super 'full' but often still hungry, and i knew i needed a reset to get out of my comfort zone (aka EATING, albeit healthy foods, but too much of them). I'm so happy i pushed myself to do a cleanse. It was exactly what i needed to depuff and reset.
I have to say i was really hesitant embarking on this 3 day refresh cleanse at first. If you personally know me or have followed me here for any length of time you know that i'm a bit of a purist with food and no stranger to fasting, green juicing, and cleansing, and also that i shy away from 'programs' preset with any sort of supplements that i'm not already versed on. Bottom line, i'm a 'hard' sell. Over a year ago the company that i trust for nutrition and fitness started offering a 3 day cleanse program that i hesitated to try because i didn't know the ingredients well enough. I didn't do my homework, didn't bother to learn why the ingredients in it were keys to success, and i just assumed that i knew better. What i missed out on was the opportunity to lean down and debloat quick and get a result in 3 days that i was chasing for a long time.
Now here's the heart of it. If you are purely Paleo or Ketogenic and won't touch a shake mix because it's got oat protein or pea protein in it or because there is a little agave in the mix, then RESPECTFULLY this program is probably NOT for you. You can go to your local juice bar instead and pay $300 for 3 days of liquid that would cost you about $60 to press daily on your own at home (yes your $250 investment in an amazing juicer will have just paid for itself), and i have TONS of recipes to help you HERE. However IF you are like me and of purist mind but looking for a quick fix to de-bloat and lean out in 3 days that will not leave you feeling famished and deprived i have a solution. As a matter of fact what i loved about this cleanse most is that i wasn't suffering my way though it, and in three short days i not only looked and felt better but my appetite was suppressed and i found myself making better choices because i was simply less interested in filling up on food that wasn't serving my ultimate goal: to nourish my body with that which it needs WHEN it needs it.
