improves my insulin sensitivity

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.

Chef V came highly recommended

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!

We feel amazing!

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!

lost 6.5 lbs & my skin cleared up

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.

Green Drink… for the rest of my life!

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!

Chef V’s cleanse saved me!

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. !

I feel very fresh & energetic!

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 !!

cleanse is so thoughtfully done

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.

juice, shakes & soups are very tasty

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!

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 highly recommend it!

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! 😉

tried 4 cleanses, this is the best one

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!!!

feeling light & energized

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.

best cleanse I’ve done

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!

couldn’t imagine life without it

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!

I really liked the promise of low sugar

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.

Amazing!

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.

lost 9 lbs & still losing weight!

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!

my skin looks better

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!

I would recommend x100!

On the advice of a good friend, I decided to try the Chef V cleanse to help improve my health and get back on track with better eating habits. After doing the juice cleanse, I feel more energetic and much healthier, overall! As someone who always wants sugar, my cravings reduced dramatically after this drink, just as promised. And, while I’ve heard of many cleanses tasting horrible, i didn’t mind the taste of this at all! While cleansing is never easy, I feel so much better after this cleanse than I did before, and I would recommend x100!

definitely recommend Chef V to friends and family

Chef V drinks and cleanse program is the far the best.i have done a couple of challenges (1 week and 2 week),I felt so much better, clearer thinking, healthier and lighter. I have lost 16 pounds with the cleanse. Their green juices are very easy to drink. Overall the service is excellent. I got them delivered to San Francisco and it was delivered on time and with good packaging.their customer service was also very good.i would definitely recommend Chef V to friends and family. A great way to start a simple detox program at home!

one of the best!

I have tried several cleanses and Chef V’s has to be one of the best! They deliver in insulated reusable bags and the green juice is so good! The organic soup is also delicious and a nice treat from juice all day. I ended up getting more of the juice after my cleanse was over and I really need more!Two thumbs up Chef V!

the best cleanse I’ve ever done

I’m a person who likes to try different programs to help lose weight. I researched , and read other people’s stories before purchasing. Girlllll ! This is the best cleanse I’ve ever done. I purchased the 3 day cleanse and lost 5 pds! I was very strict and followed the instructions that are provided to you. Also, I mentally prepared myself 2 days prior to the cleanse arriving along with eating clean and drinking a gallon of water. Need less to say, I ordered the 5 day cleanse. I highly recommend the 3 day cleanse first. If you commit yourself , you will have no problem with this cleanse. Before I started this program I was always tired, sluggish and had awful eating habits. Immediately starting the cleanse I felt energized, got out of bed easily, and overall I felt great! You will don’t be disappointed! Thank you ChefV

Chef V is a great person

I’ve used Chef V’s juices for cleansing. The green juice is refreshing especially on hot days (to me cleansing is only bearable during the summer when you don’t want to eat anything heavy anyway). Customer service is excellent too.

The main reason I’m reviewing is because Chef V is honestly a great person. I’m a guidance counselor at an elementary school. I reached out to many San Diego companies including Suja, Rubio’s, and Hash House to see if they would come out on Career Day. All said that they were interested and to send them more info. When I did, I never heard back. I contacted Chef V maybe a week before the event. I did not expect her to respond but she did. She was interested in speaking to a class and showed up linking owning a business with social media. The kids loved her. She also gave the class each a tumbler, lunch bag, and tastes of some of her products. During lunch (after Career Day ended) some students in other classes asked me why the “pretty chef who gave out food” didn’t go to their class lol. Her business is growing and she took the time out of her schedule just to speak to a class and my school is not particularly close to where the business is.

Not only are her products great, but she gives back to the community. Businesses like this should be supported.

only one that has ever worked for me

I have done a million different cleanses over the years. I have gone up and down with my weight pretty much my entire life so I have literally tried everything you can imagine over the years. With 100% honesty The Chef V cleanse is the only one that has ever worked well for me. I have done this cleanse many times and I will be doing this cleanse many times over. I have recommended this cleanse to many people who have also raved about it. Do yourself a favor and try anything from Chef V and you will not be disappointed! If you are looking for a cleanse look no further!!!

I HIGHLY RECOMMEND

I HIGHLY RECOMMEND The Chef V Cleanse! It’s unbelievable and the products are great! I did the original 3 day cleanse last year and just recently completed the 3 day brunch cleanse. The cleanse is very low in sugar and you’ll feel the difference! Make sure to drink plenty of water during the cleanse! The cleanse arrived in a cool box with ice packs to keep the products cold. I received so many things and everything was ready to go. The cookbook was great with plenty of options and the bottles were nice. Day 1 of the cleanse was easy. Take the products as instructed and enjoy. The green drink and tropical green drink were great. Definitely gave me more energy throughout the day. The carrot soup was amazing and flavorful. You can eat a nice dinner from the meal plan but I decided not to. Day 2 and 3 were not too bad. The juices, almond milk, tea, and protein shake were filling. They did the job and I had more energy. I definitely felt the difference of not eating bad food and juicing. The soups served as great dinners.  I can’t say enough good things about Chef V and their staff. Their customer service is AMAZING and they are there with you every step of the way. I feel great and will do more cleanses in the future. Thank you Chef V!

lost 2 1/2 inches off my waist

I ordered the 5 day cleanse hoping I could lose 5 lbs. Well, not only did I lose 7 lbs but I also lost 2 1/2 inches off my waist and the cleanse completely reset my body! If you follow the – instructions exactly and drink a ton of water you will be AMAZED at the results! I’m now 2 weeks out and still have not had a sip of soda and I am addicted to drinking water now!  And I have actually lost 2 more pounds!! My appetite has been decreased considerably and my stomach is so flat! I will absolutely do this cleanse again, I felt fantastic and slept better than I ever have. This cleanse really teaches you to think about what you put in your body and how it reacts. If you are looking for a way to jump-start a healthier lifestyle- this is the cleanse for you!!

shed pounds & feel energized

If you are looking to shed pounds, feel energized and cleanse your body, Chef V is the way to go. The 3 day cleanse is a great jump-start to living a healthy lifestyle and something I intend to do on a regular basis. The green drink is a great way to start your morning and feel amazing through out the day. Thank you Chef V!!!

you’ve earned a customer for life!

After many years of yo-yo dieting, personal training, weight loss and weight gain, I was tired of feeling burned out and unhealthy. I had heard of Chef V through a friend at work but green drinks and me were not friends! Quite frankly I thought they were disgusting. Not Chef V! At the end of the 5 days, I was down 8 pounds, my skin is clear and softer, my sleep is amazing and the green drink I was scared of?! I now crave it and have no idea how I could through a day without it. It has completely changed how I look at food. I am so excited I gave this a try. Chef V, you have earned a customer for life! Can’t wait to see the continued results from this addition to my daily habits.

I LOVE this cleanse :)

I LOVE this cleanse 🙂 I do it 2 to 3 times a year and always look forward to the elevation in energy.

losing 14 lbs after 4 days

I’m a 38 year old man whose metabolism died about 8 years ago. Feeling a bit lethargic and needing a detox, I was referred to Chef V by a friend of mine.  After reading all the rave reviews and looking through the site I decided to do the 3 day green juice detox. I just got off the cleanse this morning and never felt better!  Having the green juice, protein shakes, and daily evening soups were just the right amount of nourishment my body needed while still being able to function. The result?  Losing 14 lbs after 4 days! Mahalo Chef V!

I lost 10 lbs, he lost 15 lbs

We were both pleasantly surprised, neither one of us were ever really “starving”. I set alarms to remind myself of what would be next and staying on the schedule you actually feel quite full! End result, I lost 10lbs he lost 15lbs! This was the perfect start to leaning out for summer as we were both fairly active. Thank you Chef V for the soups at the end of the night, definitely looked forward to them. What a great experience!!

product is the best!

After completing 5 days of Chef V’s cleanse, I must say that Chef V’s product is the best! Not only is the juice delicious and extremely low in sugar, the protein shake is tasty (enough) and the soup is delicious!  And the support from her staff is tremendous. As a coffee lover and self-proclaimed “sugar addict”, I challenged myself to five days. As warned and expected, the first two days were a bit rough; headaches in the afternoons and some cravings.  But the third day was much easier, and the fourth and fifth days were the best!  No more sugar and caffeine highs and lows; no more crashes! I was amazed how great I felt. My body was running like a well-oiled (or well-watered in this case) machine.  My digestion was great; no more bloating, gas, or strange rumblings! I am already looking forward to the next cleanse! Thank you, Chef V.

healthier, energized & I crave the green drink!

The Chef V cleanse definitely gets my stamp of approval. My first cleanse was the 5-day and I have never done a cleanse before. I won’t lie: it was hard. I eat a lot of solid food and just drinking liquids is normally not my thing. I feel healthier, energized, and actually crave the green drink. It’s a super green, healthy drink and chances are your body isn’t used to getting so much of it. A cleanse isn’t just about losing weight, it’s about inputting good nutritious foods into your system so that your body and mind will thank you. But I did end up losing 6 pounds, from 128 to 122 which is a nice bonus!

I am happy with my appearance!

For the first time in my life, I am happy with my appearance! I lost a total of 13 lbs on the 7 day cleanse and actually have been less bloated than I have ever been in my entire life! This was my first cleanse ever and it is complete, it has a protein powder mix, a detoxifying nightly soup, and a delicious juice that you come to crave. I found myself craving the green juice every morning and found that the only time I felt hunger pangs were the 15 minutes after my scheduled juices on powders. This was a complete restart on my body and I now feel incredible!

lost 13 pounds & feel better

I decided to do the cleanse after two of my friends showed me their fantastic results from Chef V’s cleanse!  I bought the 7 day and started ASAP.  Overall, I lost 13 pounds with the cleanse (was originally 130) and I feel so much better!  I recommended the cleanse to a friend of mine after showing her my results and she also lost 10 pounds.  In conclusion, if you’re trying to find a way to lose weight, try Chef V’s organic cleanse.  You won’t be disappointed ? Thanks Chef V!

Affordable, effective AND DELICIOUS!

I’ve spent the better half of the last decade trying out every diet, cleanse, detox, herbal supplement, essential oil, holistic treatment, you name it…. and the Chef V cleanse is by far one of my favorites. Why? It’s organic, affordable and effective. AND delicious!! I really couldn’t recommend this cleanse more.  I’m not the type to ever try any gimmicky ‘weight loss drinks’ filled with sugar (or worse artificial flavors and gmos).  And I’m definitely not the type to do a just-juice deprivation diet where I’m assaulting my body with sugar and not feeding it any protein or fiber.  Again, Chef V is not that.  This is a very well researched, tried and true, effective but gentle detox that is perfect for any healthy individual looking to cleanse their body from the inside out.  Side effects include weight loss, increased levels of confidence, and being compelled to write a fanatical blog post.

my 5th time & I love how it makes me feel

I am doing Chef V’s three day juice cleanse for about the fifth time now and LOVE how it makes me feel.  The juice is delicious, and the instructions for the cleanse are easier than a one piece jigsaw puzzle.  Each day I look forward to the fantastic organic soup for dinner.  I am never hungry and feel no discomfort, only elation in knowing that in three days I’ll be feeling on top of the world!  Thanks Chef V and your magic delivery elves.
