My Review & Results from the 3 Day Refresh

 
This past week I completed the 3 Day Refresh & I absolutely loved my results...especially since I put on a little "fluff" from vacation and the 4th of July!
 
The 3 Day Refresh is for anyone looking to lose a few pounds fast and/or to look and feel better in just 3 days. This program is for anyone that wants to kickstart their nutrition, break bad eating habits, get ready for a big event and look their best, or for just a routine “refresh” of their body.  I know for me personally, I like doing the refresh after I have had a recent food binge from vacation or a holiday! After completeing the refresh you will lost weight, decrease belly bloat, feel lighter, improve digestion, feel healthier, curb cravings, and increase energy. 
 
  
 
The meal plans consists of 3 vegan shakes a day, a fiber drink, lots of water, fresh fruit, veggies, and healthy fats so that you can maintain your energy while stripping out all animal by-products and processed foods.
 
 
Day 1: Lots of energy & belly bloat started to decrease. No workout on day 1.
 
 
Day 2: STARVING!!! All I wanted to do was eat eggs or protein...I did not workout on day 1, but I did on day 2 and all I could think about was food. I had lots of energy, abs became more defined, & lost 2lbs/2in.

 
Day 3: Feeling AWESOME! My waist & my body appeared more defined and less "fluffy". Did not workout on day 3. Lost 4lbs/4in.
Day 0 aka Day 4 - REFRESH COMPLETE - Feeling wonderful. Belly bloat has decreased tremendously, visible definition in my abs, lots of energy, and lost a total of 5lbs/4.5in.
 
 I would recommend the 3 Day Refresh to anyone that is looking to get their health back, gain more energy, and or lose some extra unwanted weight!

Love the feeling of eating clean...

Food is truly medicine to your body:)
