Shakeology 3 Day Fast or Cleanse

ShakeologyYou may have heard about the 3 Day Shakeology Fast or Cleanse.  Since I always like to be a product of the product, and be able to speak knowledgeably about the products we use and endorse, I thought what better way, then do actually do the Shakeology Fast.  This is not something Extremely-Fit has put together, but a Shakeology Fast put together by Beachbody coaches in general.  Below you will find all the details about the Fast, and can easily use the information found here, to do your own Fast.  Please be sure to read the information carefully.   The Shakeology Fast is meant to jump start you in your fitness (prior to starting an exercise program), break a plateau (if currently in a workout program) or shred pounds fast & effectively in a healthy way.  If you are currently doing a workout program, try this fast on a recovery week, instead of on a week of regular workouts.  If you try the fast, please remember to come back here and post a comment about your success!!   As another side note.  Shakeology is not just meant to be used in the Fast, but also as a healthy meal replacement shake to be taken once daily after the Fast. 

I also hope to serve as an example on how to properly follow the Shakeology Fast, and will be posting comments below with my progress.  I am currently in my 10th round of P90X, on a recovery week.  I have just finished my first day.  To follow my personal experiences, see the comments below.  Now for the details:

3 Day Shakeology Fast or Cleanse:

Mission: To help as many people become healthier from the inside out. Internal health is the foundation to external beauty.

Products Needed: Chocolate or Greenberry Shakeology
You will continue to use the product after the Fast is over to continue your weight loss efforts and overall health benefits.

3 SHAKEOLOGY Shakes a day
2 Cups of Green Tea a Day
1 or 2 pieces of fruit a day
1 salad for dinner
Only white grilled protein in salad


Only Low Fat Dressings.

You can put your 2 snacks before/after any of the MAJOR MEALS-Breakfast Lunch & Dinner

The fruit is optional, and I actually discourage it, however, some of you will need the calories where others would not.

Power workout participants (Super Conditioned- not the weight challenged) are recommended to add the fruit for the extra calories.

*** For maximum results NO additives.

I also said NO DIARY products at all for maximum results, no almond soy or rice milk.

Dinner salad was only WHITE GRILLED PROTEIN. Poultry or fish.

REPEAT all 3 Days

    I just received shakeology in the mail today! I am currently 6 months pregnant, so I am not able to start shakeology yet. I ordered a couple of flavors for my husband and have a few questions. First, how many meals per day can you replace shakeology with to lose weight? Second, can my husband do the fast using the vanilla and strawberry flavors instead of the ones that you used? And third, after I have my baby I want to get on the shakeology train!! Is it safe for me to use shakeology as a meal replacement, or two, while breast feeding?

    Hi Lindsey, I would recommend using Shakeology once per day in combination with a clean, healthy meal plan. Any of the flavors will work for the fast, but while Shakeology is best in a recipe, for the fast its just plain. As far as using Shakeology while breastfeeding, the Beachbody Fitness advisors state that you should refer to your doctor for advice, however, I have seen others use Shakeology while breast feeding, but please check with your doctor. Thanks!
