The Chef V Green Cleanse

Chef V Organic Cleanse

Spring is here and isn’t this normally the time of year we clear everything out?  We get facials, we clean all the windows, we go through the crap we have around the house and donate it, we clean the yards and sparkle them up for the new season.  Well Spring seemed like the perfect time to finally do a juice cleanse.  I have been thinking on this for over a year, I have had opportunities arise to try, but just never took the steps.  Enter here the Chef V Organic Green Drink and Cleanse.  I am going to share with you my experience while on the Chef V Cleanse for the past three days {good, honest and the struggles}. *I received product for my own opinion and review of this*

Total honesty, I was very skeptical of this cleanse {or any for that matter}.  I had gone over the pre-cleanse directions carefully and prepared myself ahead of time.  I was not looking for major weight loss, just a body re-boot of some sort.

This is what arrived.

Chef V’s Detox Soup

Bottle Blender and Organic Ultra Shake

I admit, when the box arrived I was a bit overwhelmed.  There were three days worth of cleansing products in it and I was wondering what I had gotten myself into.  The Green Drink is a mixture of pure raw greens that are blended, not cold pressed.  It retains all the nutrient rich fiber.  That fiber not only keeps you satisfied throughout the day, but it speeds up your metabolism and improves overall digestion, which is the main reason for the weight loss you will experience.  Some cleanses cause people to lose weight because they’re basically starving themselves.  Chef V works because it improves your health.  There are only 3 grams of sugar per serving of the Green Drink.

The Detox Soup was really good.  This was heated up for the evening part of the cleanse.  The coconut milk and curry was just a few ingredients, how could you go wrong?  I love soup, so this was easy for me.  I did add black pepper to it and will be making my own version soon.  The Ultra Shake reminded me of a protein drink, only not as thick.  This tasted better with ice added and continuous shaking with the blender bottle needed to be done as it will settle before you are done drinking it.

The Protein Shake is for  twice a day and is a brown rice and hemp based protein.  It helped to keep me satisfied during the day.

The entire journey was interesting.  I had my ups and downs.  I had read everything before and knew of any possible side effects.  The headache late on the first day and into the second morning was there, but after that I was good.  I did try to go out for a run on day two {as I am currently training for another half marathon}, that was not so great.  I don’t suggest running while on a cleanse, but that is just my body saying so.  I did attend my Pure Barre class on the third day and felt great, no problems.

My sleeping was spot on!  Oh my gosh I suffer from insomnia often and I have never slept better than I have the past three nights, {honest to God}.  The instructions are so clear and easy to follow.  I actually printed them up and kept them out while doing the cleanse.  There is a list of go to foods to incorporate into this.  I had found myself eating raw apple slices and plain brown rice on day one.  It wasn’t until I found myself pulling the m&m’s out of our daughter’s trail mix, that I realized I could be in trouble and not make it the entire cleanse.

  2. I’m not big into juice cleansing but I have done them and I have to agree that the sleep aspect of it is AMAZING. As a fellow insomniac, I think I would cleanse for just the sleep alone. 😉

  3. I always see so much about these cleanses, and want to do one. But I never have before.

  4. I’m a big juice cleanse fan and this one looks great!!
