The first question that almost anyone asks is whether they will be constantly hungry while on the juice cleanses. The answer is: not as hungry as you would expect! Our juices contain a LOT of fruits and veggies, and are surprisingly filling.
When you drink a fresh-pressed raw juice and shower your body with nutrients and enzymes, it is nutritionally satisfying to your body and causes you to eat less of unhealthy foods. If you feed your cells with the nutrients it needs, your cravings will disappear and your body will burn fat. We usually drink each juice over the course of an hour, and many people are surprised with the amount of energy they have while juice cleansing. We don’t bother with a specific calorie count, but each day of the cleanse is around 1,200 calories. So while it’s less than most of us are used to, it’s plenty of fuel to get you through the day.
We do suggest a lighter work out than normal while on the cleanse. Yoga, walking, or a light run/swim are all good
Drink a lot of water! This will help your body flush out all the nasty stuff you have inside and further the detoxification.
The more prepared your body is for the cleanse, the easier it will be. We highly recommend modifying your diet the week before you plan to do the cleanse. Removing dairy, meat, packaged and processed food, gluten, sugar, alcohol and caffeine from your diet will both aid in the overall cleansing process and help introduce your body to living without these items. The goal of the days before your cleanse is to prepare your body for the detoxification process, so the simpler and more wholesome the better. Most importantly, DON’T STRESS ABOUT YOUR CLEANSE. We are all busy people and sometimes you can’t control what life sends your way. This cleanse is ultimately about listening to your body and giving it some space to detoxify and relax. Remember we are all different. These are suggestions on how to get the most out of your cleanse based on our experiences.
The days following the cleanse are equally as important as the days prior. Your body has just transformed at the cellular level, and you need to continue to eat simple and enjoy natural, wholesome, fresh, and organic foods. Follow the same guidelines as the days before your cleanse. We recommend fresh fruit for breakfast, simple whole grains and salads with snacks of raw veggies throughout the day. As you slowly start integrating food groups back into your diet, notice how different items make you feel. Is gluten or dairy particularly difficult? Or you may find yourself no longer crave fatty foods or sugary items. This cleanse is not set up to limit yourself, but allow for more space to listen to your body. The more we understand about our bodies the better we will be able to fuel them and provide them the nourishment they need.
Nothing is more fundamental than flooding your body with the nutrients it needs from living vital food juices, so it is able to clear out unwanted toxins, essentially putting yourself back on track to whole health. After a cleanse many people have more energy, and a sense of rejuvenation. People experience a feeling of lightness, mental clarity, and happiness. It is a simple way to integrative whole body health down to a cellular level.
Freshly squeezed juice tastes so much better than store-bought, doesn’t it? There’s a reason.
When you drink the juice of a raw fruits or vegetables – right after it’s been extracted, you’re filling your body with living enzymes, vitamins, and nutrients. Our bodies are alive. They can tell the difference between a living juice and one that has been sitting on a shelf containing preservatives and additives. It tastes different because it is different. Most store-bought juices (Naked, Bolthouse, etc.) are pasteurized, which kills the nutrients and enzymes. Raw juice is so beneficial to you, because like a sponge, your body happily absorbs all of the above goodies when you include them in your diet. Your digestion will improve, you’ll rest better at night, have a healthier bowel, think more clearly; some even insist their eyesight is enhanced. Without these living nutrients in your juice, you’re just drinking a flavor.
