I just finished up 21 days of the Ultimate Reset Cleanse and wanted to share with you all my real experience, and some tips that I learned. I will start out by saying that I never recommend doing the Ultimate Reset Cleanse during the holiday season. If looking into doing this cleanse you should choose a time where you don't have any major events such as a wedding or a vacation. You want to choose a time where you can focus on the cleanse and give it everything you have. That being said, I decided to do it during December for a couple reasons. I had traveled for most of the month of November and was not feeling myself. Aside from that I had a challenger who was motivated and ready to do this cleanse during the month of December. Since I had done this cleanse many times before and knew what to expect, I decided that I didn't want to her to go at it alone and decided to join! Finding a friend to do the cleanse with so that you can keep each other on track and focused is something that I recommend.
My experience was very similar to the other times that I have done this cleanse. The week one shopping trip can be overwhelming and expensive. This will be the most intense shop of the cleanse and the reason it is so expensive is because of all the different oils you need to buy for the next several weeks. I spent about $250 in week one which was the most expensive of all three weeks. To put it into perspective, week 2 only cost me $90. Aside from the price there are lots of items on the list that you may have never heard of. Make sure to bring a printed list and a pen to the store with you and don't be afraid to ask the people who work there for help finding things. If you are too proud for help, you will find yourself at the store for hours!
Once home from the store make sure to take time and really cut and prep all your food to make it easier for you. I like to prep my meals for the next couple days, wash and cut all of my fruit, and make any grains that we will need. I do everything possible to make my upcoming week easier. This cleanse is a lot both physically and mentally. It is also an investment. I don't want you to find yourself in a mood where you just want to give up and fall off the wagon. That is why it is so important to mentally prepare yourself beforehand and also physically prepare yourself by reading the entire book, knowing what to expect on the meal plan for the week, and getting prepared!
Shopping and prepping is the hard part, after that you just follow along with your book and eat some amazing meals! I found it helpful to set a timer in my phone letting me know when to take my supplements so that I never forgot that part. Also, make sure you are drinking lots of water throughout the day!
Every time I have done this cleanse, week 1 and 2 are very easy for me. I love all of the food, I never find myself hungry, and by week two I am glowing and feeling amazing. Every time I get to week 3 I end up having a shift. By week 3 I am not hungry, not wanting to eat cleanse food anymore, and ready for it to be over. I think this is because in week 3 we are only eating fruits and vegetables which is extremely hard for me personally.
Although week 3 always proves to be difficult, I love doing the cleanse and the results that I get. For the first time I exercised during this cleanse implementing The 3 Week Yoga Retreat. I definitely enjoyed this addition to my routine. Adding yoga really helped me to focus on the overall purpose of why I was doing the cleanse to begin with which was to bring myself back to being present not only in my life, but to what I am putting into my body. If you do the Ultimate Reset Cleanse I recommend also doing the 3 Week Yoga Retreat with it!
Now for my results. In 3 weeks in the middle of the holiday season I lost 6 lbs and 12 inches over all. Aside from that I have more energy, have felt a positive shift in my attitude, and have been sleeping better.
If you are looking for a major kick in the butt and are dedicated to making a change, the Ultimate Reset Cleanse is a great way to get started. It was what helped me learn how to cook, try different foods, and have a better understanding of food in general.
