Why Should You Meal Prep?

I remember what it was like in the beginning of my weight loss journey. I had no idea where to start or what to do. I figured fitness-wise I really just needed to move my ass and sweat, but I was completely and utterly lost on what to eat. Once I learned how to meal prep, everything changed.

Honest Review of Beachbody's Ultimate Reset 21 Day Detox

I've been hearing about Beachbody's Ultimate Reset for years now. I've never really been too interested in lengthy detoxes or cleanses, but I have always been a little curious about the Ultimate Reset because I've heard some good things about it. Problem is that most of the good things I'd heard were coming from people who in some way were affiliated with Beachbody, so I never knew for sure what to think. At one point, about a year ago, I even tried to look up some reviews. The only detailed reviews I could find were from Beachbody coaches and it was only positive points that were listed. I remember thinking, why can't I find an honest review? I mean come on... any 21 day detox, I don't care how awesome it is, has to have some crappy aspects to it. This isn't a measly weekend detox, 21 days is a good chunk of time. It can't be all roses and rainbows.

I've always mostly detoxed or cleansed in natural ways through particular foods, infused waters, and Epsom salt baths and I didn't have any real intentions on doing the ultimate reset anyway so I moved on with my life. A few times in the past, I've completed a 3-day detox, but I never thought I'd ever actually do a 3-week detox. That sounded not so fun to me.

However, in spring of this year I found myself a little bit off track. Then my husband and I took a trip to Nashville and by the time I got back home, let me tell you... I was a lot off track. In addition to being off track, I was (not liking to admit this) in a super lazy funk. All I wanted to do was go back to Nashville and eat more Hattie B's (not even playin').

I didn't feel like thinking about anything or figuring anything out, so for the first time ever I seriously considered doing the Ultimate Reset 21 Day Detox. After pondering it for a few weeks, I decided to go ahead and try it. I figured maybe it would get me back on track and that my curiosity would also finally be quenched about this detox. As soon as I made the decision to do it, I then also decided that I would write an honest review about it. I would write the detailed review I was once searching for, one that doesn't spew any bullshit and just gives it to you straight.

I didn't get paid for this review, I have no ties or affiliations to Beachbody, and I bought this Ultimate Reset Detox with my own money. All of the opinions are my own and boy do I have a lot of them. I give you a blow by blow and I don't hold back. I give you the good, the bad, and the ugly. Find out if this detox is for you...
