I’m trying my first cleanse right now!! And you’re either thinking “Cool, which one?! OR “Ugh, I don’t believe in cleanses.”
I feel like I have seen so many cleanses online and have considered doing one for the longest time. But I have always been hesitant for a few reasons… I like to eat, a lot of them are full of sugar, I do think our bodies are pretty efficient at self cleaning, and did I mention I like to eat?
But I’ve heard a lot about the Chef V cleanse that sounded better than any other…
the green juice is blended to get more of the good stuff in the drink
it comes with a protein drink
the juice is NOT a ton of fruit juice and sugar
it also comes with a soup to have at the end of the day
they deliver it straight to my door
Also, I have really wanted to try a cleanse because I don’t’ feel right saying “I don’t believe in cleanses” if I’ve never tried one. Since I’m doing the Health Coaching certification I know a lot of my future clients are going to ask me about cleanses. I want to have first hand knowledge on this topic. I really think this is a good one if you’re going to try one.
AND… this is for ME and my body. My thyroid is still sluggish despite being on medication and taking holistic supplements. After a lot of research and debate I need to change up my diet and this is like a ‘fresh start’ for me. It’s almost a ceremonial way for me to start a new chapter of taking care of my body with better food.
So today was my first day on the Chef V Cleanse – there are 3 day, 5 day and 7 day options. I’m trying the 3 day, but since I’ve never even done a 1 day cleanse I’m not sure if I’ll be able to stick to it the whole time. I tried to set myself up for success by cleaning out my kitchen of any crappy foods though!
First things first, I went for a short run this morning. You shouldn’t do any intense exercise while on a cleanse so I kept it very light.
First green juice of the day… I was a little scared it wasn’t going to be good since I knew it wasn’t packed with sugar, but it is delicious! It’s actually very refreshing.
I had the first protein drink of the day on the way to acupuncture. This was really good too. All cleanses come with a shaker cup that came in handy all day.
(There are more juices and tons of water happening throughout the day too.)
I was pleasantly surprised by the soup too. It has sweet potatoes and is very good!
And now I’m sipping a green juice and chatting with you nice people. I will admit that I want a treat right now. If I had something in my house I’d probably eat it so it’s good I cleaned out the junk!
The nice people at Chef V have offered to give RER readers a 55% discount off any of the cleanses! That is better than any discount or coupon I’ve ever seen from them.

I’ll follow up with my thoughts after the cleanse. Let me know if you have any questions!
