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.
