Eating healthy has always been a struggle for me. I have had poor eating habits for most of my adult life. I used to randomly try to go on a diet but of course they never worked for me. It’s only been recently that I had success losing weight and it has been thanks to the 3 day cleanse.
The 3 day cleanse is a great way to quickly and naturally drop some pounds. Instead of going on a complicated diet for months at a time, this program offers a simple and quick way to drop a few pounds.
Like I said I’d always had trouble sticking to diets. I was a little apprehensive of these 3 day program at first because I wasn’t sure I could stick to it. Thankfully it’s only 3 days so I took a leap of faith and forced myself to stick to it.

Here’s what my first day on the program looked like:
After waking up: 1 glass of water with lemon 250ml
Breakfast (within a hour of waking up): Vegan Chocolate Shake with half a banana
Snack: Fiber Sweep
Lunch (1 hour after snack): 2 vegetables (snap peas/carrots) & 1 fruit (grapes) plus some healthy fats (2 tbsp hummus) + 1 Vanilla Refresh Shake
Afternoon Snack: 1 veggie (snap peas) + healthy fat (2 tbsp hummus)
Dinner: Spinach salad + Vanilla Refresh Shake
The rest of the days on the programs are variations of the above foods. By the way – all the shakes taste way better with a banana in them!
After the first day I was hungry but It wasn’t anything I couldn’t deal with. I was surprised that I wasn’t super hungry. My body was just used to having more junk in it.
On the second day I spilt my meals around 2 hours apart. Since I
