Anonymous asked: so all you need to do for a bit of a clense is to drink juice and water all day? any other tips? thanks! :)
In a sense, yes. Companies such a Pressed Juicery, BluePrintClease, etc. are great but pricey. You have to take your normal, everyday lifestyle into consideration. Are you going to have time to pick it up? Do you have the extra $$ to get it delivered all week? Do you have time to make 6 juices on your own everyday?
I look for “deals” on Groupon, Bloomspot, DailyCandy, etc. and have found some great ones.
If you decide to do your own, make sure you have a reliable juicer, VitaMix, etc. You should always juice or blend all of your own juices, do not just go by a jug of Green Machine Naked Juice and call it a day.
You can get some great ideas, recipes, and information here. I have mentioned companies in CA, however there are hundreds all over the US! (Some companies will even ship you a cleanse).
It is important to stay hydrated, do low impact exercise, and evaluate how you feel each day and adjust accordingly.
It also helps to ease yourself in and out of the cleanse if it is extremely different than what you eat on an every day basis. Personally, I am a raw vegan (also gluten, soy, and sugar free) so there isn’t much of a change. I’m basically consuming the same exact foods, but just blending them first so my digestive system can take a break and I can flush out toxins.
If you are someone who loves meat, dairy, breads, caffeine, etc. you might have some issues. To make your clease go as smoothly as possible, you should cut out all caffeine, alcohol, and heavy meat 7 days before you even start your cleanse. About 3 days before, you should cut out all dairy and gluten, and the day before you should eat only fruits, veggies, and raw nuts & seeds. Then, after your cleanse, do the same routine only backwards. Slowly introduce those foods back into your diet, you will get sick if you run out an grab a burger. However, evaluate how you feel! If you feel amazing after the cleanse, do you really want those foods back in your diet?
Just some food for thought ;)
