Does the Shakeology 3 Day Cleanse Work?

When I did the Shakeology 3 day cleanse I was wondering if it would really work for me.  I wasn’t over weight and the average weight loss seamed to be 5 to 10 lbs in the 3 days from the research I did.  I was in the normal range for weight so I didn’t really think I’d lose any more and 2 pounds and if I did I would be impressed.  Well after the 3 days I was impressed, I was down 3.8 pounds!  Did I gain it back? No, I didn’t gain it back.  That was the best part, as long as you continue to replace 1 meal a day after you do the cleanse you should not gain it back.
