3-Day Refresh Recap part 2

So today's diet consisted of the exact same thing as yesterday. I didn't enjoy Day 1 so I just left it the same and tried again. I'm going to be very honest with you. I don't want to sugar coat things just to get readers....I'm done with it, I'm not going to even do the last day because it simply wouldn't matter. The refresh claims to be "not a starvation diet" but it is very close to it. You are eating barely 900 calories, and all of those come primarily from the shakes and the healthy fats you are supposed to consume. I have zero energy, a constant headache & (tmi alert) haven't used the bathroom but 1 time. I will say, because of not eating so much, I am drinking a lot more water which I will continue to do from here on out. I will also say it has helped diminish my cravings for the crap. I'm so hungry I actually want real food, lol. I lost a pound, great....I'm not sure how all these people lost these big #'s. Maybe they hold onto a lot of water, maybe they eat a lot of junk. I've done cleanses in the past and the more I've done the less I've lost. I'm not sure why but that's just been my experience. The kit itself has everything you need besides the fresh stuff but I personally think it's not needed to do a refresh like this. Drinking 3 shakes a day and sticking to fruit & veggies would have just about anyone drop some pounds and inches over a couple of days. I don't know if this kit is worth the $70 it costs. All in all, as much as I think it may be a good idea for some, for people like me with a long time in this weight loss journey & the knowledge I have, it's not worth the money. 

Do yourself a favor & do things right. Eat better, exercise & get to your goal like I know we all can. I'm starting tomorrow with a new game plan and will keep you posted! The best thing this cleanse gave me was a Refreshed outlook on my future & my potential to be great.

  1. Thank you for your honest evaluation. I will save my money and hit up the veggie stand today!!

  2. Good for you!! $70 seems pretty steep for something that, from your experience at least, DOES sound like a crash diet. You can refresh/reset your system with whole and healthy foods in a much more sustainable way than what it sounds like this plan is doing. Slow and steady weight loss is much more sustainable than a 5-lb drop in 3 days anyway. Get back to basics, I think your body will thank you!! :)
