When I was diagnosed with a lifelong autoimmune condition (Type 1 Diabetes) five years ago, one of the first things that came to mind was a reset. A chance to give my body a break from all that it was going through.
Due to all the changes and adjustments with blood sugar management, my doctor highly advised against doing a cleanse because of the excess sugar load and the difficulties that come with proper dosing. (Traditional juicing quickly spikes your blood sugar and when your pancreas is unable to produce insulin naturally… manual attempts can be risky).
Flash forward 3 years later when a friend shared ChefV with me. She showed me how low sugar the blended greens were and I was pleasantly surprised. I remember thinking – “Wow I may actually be able to complete cleanse without the crazy stress!”
I’ve successfully completed the ChefV 3 day cleanse over six times now and it’s my go-to whenever I need a reset for myself or my clients. Not only does it make me feel lighter and less inflamed, it drastically improves my insulin sensitivity, digestion, and mental space.
Last but not least… owners Veronica and Brandon are extremely hands on and supportive! Their love and passion for ChefV is what makes it the best cleansing experience I’ve found thus far.
I had been trying to lose weight for a few months. I’m educated about
the right ways and wrong ways to lose weight but no matter what I did
my body would not release a single pound of fat. I was also having
some other small health issues and knew that my body needed a reset.
Chef V came across my radar at just the right moment. I signed up for
the 5 day cleanse and started on the first available delivery date
which was only a few days away. I was fully committed from the
beginning so sticking to the plan was not a problem. I won’t lie
though, I struggled with detox symptoms the entire time. Even though
I’ve been a vegan for 20 years, I had years of toxins and stress to
let go. I got nearly every single detox symptom mentioned and even
some that were not, like sciatic nerve pain. The symptoms lasted the
full five days for me. In retrospect I probably should have done a
longer cleanse for my body but 5 days was just the right amount
mentally. Even with these symptoms, the detox was well worth it. I
lost 15 pounds, 9 of which stayed off after returning to solid foods
and I broke several bad habits. I nearly always stood while eating.
I’m in a hurry all the time because I have a disabled child that needs
me and enjoying my food is the last thing on my mind. However having
the warm detox soup to look forward to at the end of the day felt like
such a treat that I learned to sit down and savor every bite. I’ve
carried that over to my meals now and it’s been wonderful. I also got
in the habit of drinking more water which has improved my health
overall. And I learned to distinguish physical hunger from emotional
hunger. In addition to all of this, I felt cleaner inside and out. All
in all, excellent benefits and I look forward to doing these cleanses
on a regular basis. I should also mention that even though it is
suggested you pick a good time to cleanse, for me there is no good
time and during my cleanse my husband was in India so I was caring for
our children including our disabled daughter 24 hours a day completely
by myself which means waking every hour or two to adjust her position,
refill her food, or change her bedclothes. Sleep was just not to be
had (as my attached pictures will show) nor was a break of any kind.
If I was able to do this cleanse 100% perfectly in the situation I am
in, surely anyone can do it. However, if I had to make the Green Drink
and soup myself, I would never be able to do a cleanse. The
convenience of this made it possible. No vegetables to purchase,
clean, and juice. No dirty juicer and kitchen to clean repeatedly
throughout the day. No cooking required. Such a relief. I’ve attached
a side-by-side comparison of my face. Both pictures were taken at 4 in
the morning after almost no sleep and obviously without makeup or face
products of any kind and under the same lights. Though I look
murderous in both pictures, you can still clearly see the improvement
in my skin and coloring that can only be attributed to the cleanse.
So, let me preface this with a few facts:
1) Chef V came highly recommended by a friend of mine, so I didn’t even hesitate to order a 3 day cleanse for my wife
2) My wife and I own a personal training studio, so we are very conscientious when it comes to products that we use or recommend
3) I myself juice regularly, juices which I make myself, so I have a fairly high expectation for product quality and freshness
I can say that I had more energy than I’ve had on any cleanse before; I had phenomenal 40 mile bike ride on day 2 and great workout on day 1. I’m pleased with the results I achieved, and I’ve already referred 2 clients for the 3 day cleanse. The products were fresh, tasted almost as good as my own, and the value is absolutely there!
Thank you so much. I work about 13-14 hrs a day in the wardrobe department of a television show. It is so easy to eat junk all day. Me and the driver (Tim) of my wardrobe trailer committed to the 3 day cleanse and we feel amazing! Day 1, was the toughest day. Day 2, I saw the difference in my everything. And Day 3, was an introduction to my New Self.
We Thank you Chef V!
Originally I thought I couldn’t do it because I love to eat junk food and drink coffee. Well I just finished my 3 day cleanse and I feel great! I lost 6.5 pounds and my skin cleared up. I did the cleanse with no problem and barely felt hungry the whole time. I would recommend that everyone do a cleanse at least once. This was my first cleanse and I’m glad that I did the research on Chef V because it was the right choice. The green drink was tasty and kept me energized. I was surprised that I didn’t need my daily coffee. I think that I will drink a lot less coffee.
I just finished my 3 day cleanse and it was great! The green drink is amazingly fresh tasting and does not have any single veggie overpowering the taste. During my cleanse I felt very energized and clear headed. I had enough energy to do a 45 minute workout first thing when I got up. I did this for all 3 days of the cleanse an felt great. I also noticed I felt better doing the workout on the cleanse then when I do it while on solid foods. I’ll definitely incorporate Chef V’s green drink to my everyday regimen…for the rest of my life! I usually have healthy eating habits but occasionally will enjoy a cheeseburger with fries or and extra cheese pizza. I don’t do this often but I do eat healthier than most so I do reward myself sometimes. I do not abuse my “rewards” by using the 80/20 rule (80% you eat clean 20% you can be a little naughty). I will definitely do Chef V’s cleanse again!
I have never tried a cleanse but figured the new year might be a good time to give it a go. Chef V’s cleanse saved me! The green drinks were tough to get down at first but now I crave them. The detox soup is DELICIOUS- I want to try the recipe on my own one of these days. After 3 days of cleansing I feel 100% better. I will absolutely do this cleanse again. Thanks Chef V. !
After I finished my 5 day cleanse a month ago I feel very fresh and energetic!! Now I’m subscribing my green juice every week !!
I just completed my fourth Chef V 3-day cleanse and really loved it. This is the only juice cleanse I have ever considered doing, because it’s the only one that matches my personal beliefs about nutrition. I had been looking for a good juice cleanse for a couple of years, but have avoided them because they are typically high in sugar, low in protein and low in fiber. Chef V’s cleanse is so thoughtfully done — high quality plant-based protein, with blended juice that retains the full nutrients of the greens and a delicious sweet potato soup for dinner. I initially did this cleanse to rid myself of sugar and junk food cravings and to lose a little weight, but it was so effective and I liked it so much that I now do it every few months. It’s an excellent kick start to healthy eating and a great way to restore your body from the stresses and strains of everyday living. You will not feel sick or hungry during this cleanse, and bonus, you can lose a few pounds too.
This is the easiest 3 day detox program i have ever done. the juice, shakes and soups are very tasty and i never feel hungry. i have now done it 3 times within a year and love it whenever i start feeling sluggish and fatigued. i highly support this product and its team behind it and encourage everyone to try it as it is also a great jump start to a healthy life style and weight loss goals.
This is the TRUTH! My husband and I already eat very well and are experienced in juice cleanses but this one is something else (in great way). We needed to detox after the Holidays and we could not have chosen a better cleanse. The fact that you don´t consume all that sugar and get to eat a soup at night is wonderful. I usually get very nauseous by the afternoon on regular juice cleanses but never felt sick on this one! Everything tastes great (including the protein shakes which kept our muscle tone) so definitely give it a try! Of course, every cleanse is tough and you need to get over that initial “withdrawal phase” but after, you feel amazing! Biggest “take-away” is that I felt like I finally had time again. Time did not and still does not (3 weeks after) fly. I feel like I can relax and ease into the day!
I recently did Chef V’s cleanse and I LOVED it. It is delivered weekly so it is made fresh and it is very low in sugar since the juice is all veggies and just a little apple. I got rid of sugar/soda/salt cravings. It really helped me jump-start eating healthier again, so I would highly recommend it! Oh yeah and I lost 5 lbs in one week; icing on the proverbial cake! 😉
On day 3/3 of the cleanse and so far, so good! I have tried at least 4 different cleanses and this is the best one. I have had minimal detox symptoms and have been able to sustain myself so far in a very demanding and fast paced job. I was told twice this morning by coworkers that I look very SKINNY : ) I would certainly try this again in the future. I highly recommend. The soup is delicious (add some spices to make it even better), the green juice is awesome and the protein powder reminds me of Taro Bubble tea! YUMMMMMMMMMM!!!
I am most impressed with how good I feel after only one week of following this 21 Day Detox. As a person who gets headaches frequently due to my diet and amount of sugar I consume, I can say I was headache free during my first week of my 21 Day Detox! Also, as a physical therapist who is constantly up and moving around all day, I have been feeling more light and energized after my green drink and shake in the morning before I start treating patients. I don’t always have the time (or energy) to cook myself a good, wholesome meal packed with the nutrients I should be having once I get home, so the green drink and detox really allow me to get the nutrients I need.
This is the second time I’ve completed a Chef V cleanse and hers are by far the best cleanses I’ve done. I’m not cranky, starving, or tired throughout the duration but rather full of energy and clear headed. Everything is delicious, too. It’s wonderful, and always a great start to getting back on track with my healthy lifestyle. I also get the green drinks delivered weekly and they are a game changer. Friends who don’t typically like green drinks are blown away when they try this one. I start my day with it and if I don’t get a chance to drink it for some reason, I feel the difference and miss it. I have three small children and taking care of myself sometimes feels next to impossible, so Chef V is so valuable to me. Thank you!
We have been using Chef Vs Green drink for about a year now. We could not even imagine life without it now. The taste is really good and the value is great! I feel different when I drink it and I can totally tell when I miss a day. The people at Chef V are very easy to communicate with. I could not recommend their service and their product more. We also tried a 5 day cleanse which went over well. I would give 6 stars if it was an option!
If someone had told me a few months ago that I would be paying for a weekly green juice delivery, I would have laughed. I am very fiscally conservative, to say the least. I do believe on spending money on important things like health and wellness though. I tried out the 3 day cleanse after researching many different options. What I really liked about Chef V was the promise of low sugar. I hate the juices like “Naked” that are so sweet I am left wondering about the nutritional value. And as for those who are fiscally conservative like me, just remember that time is money as well. Buying all those ingredients and blending them is a lot of time. These juices get delivered to me weekly.
I’ve used both the 3-Day Cleanse and the weekly Green Drink. I started out hoping to lose weight, which I have, but stayed for the overall health benefits. I like that because Chef V’s drink is blended, not juiced, it provides the fiber you need. I highly recommend the weekly delivery of Chef V Green Drink. For me, the DIMINISHING SUGAR CRAVINGS is by far the biggest benefit. I’m usually a sugar-addict, so the fact that just drinking this a few times a day nearly cuts out the sweet-tooth – I’m still at a loss how this is possible! Amazing! As if this wasn’t enough, my skin tone has improved and I am now sleeping better at night.
Thank you Chef V for reviving me! The 3 day cleanse gave me life and re-energized me. I lost 9 lbs and still losing weight! I’m back to being me again! I should have done the 5 day cleanse, d’oh!
Did the five day cleanse last week and I feel amazing! Ive lost 6lbs, my skin looks better and I have way more energy then ever before. I am continuing to drink the green drink everyday because i love it so much and it helps me start my day. Definitely recommend giving it a try!
