I’m going to get REAL with you for a minute here. I just conquered the Beachbody Ultimate Reset and I’m here to tell you all about it. It’s a 21 day cleanse for your whole body broken into three weeklong segments. Each week comes with its own set of challenges but believe me when I tell you that you still get to eat, it’s just under strict guidelines. This is no juice cleanse. It is not a quick fix. It is about retraining your brain and your body with how you look at nutrition, how you process food. This is about getting rid of bad habits that may be stumping your progress and hopefully creating new ones.
Each week you will cut more and more out of your diet. Starting with refined foods and animal products then eventually grains and legumes, which will have you eating a diet of fruits and veggies for your final week. I loved that it was a gradual process and not cutting everything out all at once.
Each day you will eat 3 meals and 1 snack (which is optional). And yes you can still have your Shakeology, of the Vegan variety (of which there are now more options!!)
For me, doing this detox was about getting over a plateau that I had been struggling with ever since I stopped breastfeeding my son. It was about stripping down my nutrition to figure out what is and what isn’t working well with my body.
There were two issues that came up for me while on the reset: First, NO WORKING OUT FOR 21 DAYS. That was more of a struggle for me than I ever thought it would be. But when you spend the last year focusing on your health and fitness, my workouts had become more of an outlet for me and I didn’t fully realize that until this moment. And second, I was forced to cook up three separate meals every night. Yikes. My son has quite a few allergies so he gets his own dinner, then my husband and finally my own dinner. This got old for me real quick so lucky for me they also have what they call the “Reset In A Crunch” meal plan which became my saving grace.
Here is a sampling of my meals during my 21 Days:
I won’t lie to you. I did have a cheat or 2 during my 21 days. But I didn’t let it get me off track and I jumped right back on the plan ASAP. It is also imperative that you hydrate, so lots and lots of water. Aim for a gallon of water a day.
This program is hard but YOU WILL GET RESULTS! Stick with it for 21 days and you will feel better, you will lose weight, you will cleanse your body of all that nasty stuff, you will have created better habits and broken yourself of bad habits.
My results were quite astounding: down exactly 10 pounds and over 4 inches in my waist and hips alone. But now it’s about how I continue to keep moving forward and not ruin my results by going back to my old ways.
