In need of a “reboot” and somewhat cleanse from unhealthy summer eating, I recently took a 3 Day Smoothie & Soup Cleanse I purchased on Groupon. Benefits of taking a juice cleanse include lower calorie intake, energy improvement, and reduces your appetite. If you’re looking for a healthy option to lose weight or to incorporate more fruits and vegetables in your diet, here are some tips to consider.
Ask a Doctor
If you’re on medication or have health issues, consult with your physician. There’s nothing wrong with a reboot or trying to be healthier, but if it’s not for you, it just isn’t.
The Jus by Julie is 100% Vegan. If you’re a meat eater, transition by incorporating more vegetables into your meals.
Don’t Starve Yourself
If you get hungry, don’t starve yourself until the next Juice or Soup; the plan allows you to eat steamed vegetables or egg whites in between.
Drinking water not only keeps you hydrated, it cleanses toxins from your body, reduces headaches and keeps you alert.
Exercise if You Can
As with transitioning to a juice-only diet, I suggest moderately increase exercising. Start by walking for 10-15 minutes and increase to jogging or running for 30.
While I didn’t fully finish, the Jus by Julie juice cleanse was a decent alternative to eating meat & carbs for a few days. It was also less messy vs making my own juices. In the coming months, I will purchase the fruits and veggies myself to make my own.
Have you tried a juice cleanse before?
