Day 1 of The Cleanse Complete

Ok, so I started off my day with a Chocolate Shakeology shake at 8:30...very good! Now I normally add fruit or peanut butter or almond milk, however with the cleanse you can only add water. But the Shakeology was still good with just the water. I actually didn't get hungry at all because I definitely felt full until it was time for my next shake. I made a greenberry shake for my "snack," which was at 12:15pm. The greenberry is definitely a little hard to drink without adding the fruit and other fixins' that I normally do. So I definitely had to just chug that one lol. When I got home from work, I knew I had another shake to drink and I honestly was not in the least bit hungry. However, I had a chocolate one at 3:15pm and also ate a banana.

I knew I had a hard workout coming with TurboFire, so I am glad that I ate the banana. After working out I prepared my 2.5 cups of baby spinach salad with 4 ounces of grilled chicken breast. A little olive oil and vinegar and it was awesome! I had no problems at all!

After day one, I will say this...for Shakeology to only have 140 calories in it, it is amazing how filling it is. It has a thicker texture which probably helps with this. Plus with all the added ingredients: sprouted quinoa, flaxseed, and chia seed just to name a few is great for this purpose. I can definitely see why it can be a total meal replacement without even adding anything extra to it.

I didn't have any headaches, lightheadness or stomach problems. Everything is great. Now I will be ending my night with another 16 ounces of water and a cup of organic green tea :). Day 2...here I come! :)
