Detox Diary: My 3-Day Juice Cleanse

Detox Diary: My 3-Day Juice Cleanse
Hi guys, its Allison from Team LC. The first time I heard about juicing was about four years ago. I had read about this age-old diet approach in several health books, including Fit for Life, Skinny Bitch, and Crazy Sexy Diet, to name a few—and it sounded almost too good to be true. Drinking freshly squeezed fruit and veggie juices will detoxify your body, give your skin a glow and boost your immune system? “No way,” I thought to myself. But when I started hearing about juice bars popping up all over the Southern California coast, I was tempted by the accessibility and popularity of this rumored miracle cleanse.

I decided to take my first dive into the world of juicing by attempting a 3-day pressed juice cleanse from my favorite neighborhood juice bar. There were ups and downs, moments of euphoria and moments of major irritability. Throughout the cleansing process, I documented what I was feeling and going through just so I could share my experience with all of you lovely LC readers. Without further ado, here is my 3-day detox diary…

Pre Cleanse:

  • I wanted to make sure my body didn’t go into extreme shock when I started to feed it only 6 bottled juices a day, so I did my homework before starting the cleanse. I read that it is best to eat a mostly vegan diet for three days before the cleanse, as well as the three days afterwards. So…
  • I stocked up on fruits and veggies, vegetable soup, lentils and brown rice, and even picked up some green juices to get my palette accustomed to the taste. I weaned myself off of my morning coffee and opted for green tea instead.
  • I also made sure to get 8 hours of sleep the night before I started my cleanse so I wouldn’t feel tired or groggy. That way, my coffee cravings wouldn’t creep up on me on the very first day.

Day 1:

  • I started my day by waking up at 7am and walking to the juice bar down the street to pick up my 6 juices and 2 flavored waters. Afraid of feeling exhausted during the day, I didn’t want to workout while cleansing. Since I usually head to the gym in the early morning before work, I decided that taking a brisk walk was a nice cardio substitute.
  • My first juice was a delicious blend of green veggies, apples, and lemon. This gave me tons of energy and I didn’t even miss my cup of coffee.
  • By about 3pm, my energy levels were starting to crash a bit and I felt like I needed something with protein. Luckily, my fourth juice was a mix of figs, vanilla bean, and almonds. The protein from this almond milk was filling and it gave me the boost that I needed to get through the rest of the day.
  • By about 5pm, I felt pretty darn good. My eyesight was clearer and I felt really proud of myself for not succumbing to the vegan cupcakes one of my fellow LC bloggers brought into the office (they were red velvet!).
  • I kept busy at night to stave off any sweet or salty cravings. After doing laundry, a little late-night blogging, and reading for a bit, it was already time for bed. I made sure to finish my last juice 2 hours before I settled in for bed so that I would sleep through the night with no disturbances. I gave myself a mental pat on the back and drifted off into a very deep sleep…

Day 2:

  • On day 2, I woke up before my alarm even went off feeling so refreshed and rejuvenated. I walked to pick up my day 2 juices, and instead of craving coffee or breakfast, I was excited to start my day with the green juice.
  • I figured out how to space out my juices perfectly. I learned from day 1 that I should drink one juice every 2 hours in order to have my last one finished 2 hours before I went to sleep. I enjoyed the taste of the fruits and veggies even more on the second day. I also noticed that my taste buds were more in-tune to the flavors that popped out in the different juices.
  • By about 2pm, I started to crave solid food. I was working on a project on Pinterest and in the future, I would NOT recommend going on any food blogs (or Pinterest) when you are cleansing. It was torture! I saw photos of blackberry crisps, margherita pizzas, and butternut squash ravioli. The magic feelings I had been experiencing from the cleanse suddenly disappeared and I realized I was starving. But was it enough to make me break my fast…? I grabbed my root veggie juice and by the time I finished it, my cravings had passed and I did my best to focus on anything but food.
  • When 5pm rolled around, I felt hungry again. I was noticing food all around me—restaurant advertisements, food photos on billboards on my drive home, I even felt a pang of jealousy when I saw people walking into my neighborhood Whole Foods. But I had come too far…I was almost done! I made sure to get to bed early in hopes that sleep would cure my solid food cravings.

Day 3:

  • I woke up on day 3 feeling rested and unaware of the hunger pangs I experienced the night before. My skin was glowing, my eyes were sparkling, and I felt light and lean. I was excited about having my green juice for breakfast and I couldn’t believe I was already on my last day of the cleanse…24 hours to go!
  • The day went by quickly and I felt so good that I almost extended my cleanse for another 2 days. My energy was good and my body had learned how to regulate energy levels while juicing.
  • That evening, I had no late-night cravings and I felt satisfied by my evening juices. In fact, I decided that I would walk to the juice bar for a green juice the next morning since I had come to love my routine so much.

Post Cleanse:

  • I felt so good after I completed my cleanse, and I even continued to drink juices in the morning for a few days afterwards. I stuck to a vegan diet for the 3 days after finishing the cleanse and eventually went back to my regular, healthy diet. But I definitely felt cleaner and gained a sense of accomplishment.

Pros & Cons:
Now that you’ve read my detox diary, here are some of the good and bad things I learned from my cleanse.

  • Cons:
    • Cleanses are a bit pricey. If you are trying to pinch your pennies one month, it might not be the time to splurge on a cleanse, which can range anywhere from $45 per day to $75 per day. Instead, look into buying your produce from local farmer’s markets and juicing yourself! Check out this kale smoothie recipe to get you started…
    • Bottled juice cleanses like the one I tried have a ton of sugar in them, according to Everyday Health,. Even though fresh fruit juice is natural, it will still send your energy levels on an insulin rollercoaster. This is why I crashed in the late afternoon! Having a protein drink like my almond milk will help regulate your blood sugar, but it is still not healthy to have this much sugar.
    • Working out is difficult. I couldn’t get my cardio fix because I didn’t have enough energy to do my regular workouts. If you remember my post about how to fuel your workout, you might remember that I love running, hot yoga and weight training. I also can’t stand missing a workout, so I felt a little rusty getting back into the swing of things after the cleanse.
    • Cleansing is not a solution for long-term weight loss. If you are looking to shed a few pounds permanently, then a juice cleanse is not the answer. Drinking juice all day might help you to loose some water weight, according to The Huffington Post, but you might gain those pounds back post-cleanse when your body starts retaining calories from solid food again. Instead, give one of Lauren’s fitness + meal plans a try. These are my favorite: Get Fit Plan, Bikini Boot Camp, and 7 Days to Skinny Jeans Plan.
  • Pros:
    • I have never felt so hydrated! When I wasn’t drinking one of my juices, I was drinking a ton of water. I made a goal to finish a 1.5 liter bottle of water each day in order to feel full and flush out any extra toxins. This probably has a lot to do with the glow I saw in my skin on the third day.
    • Cleansing gives your body a rest from digestion, according to Livestrong. Our bodies are used to breaking down and digesting food all day, every day, for years and years. So once in a while, it’s nice to give your body a break by only consuming nutrient-rich fluids. Especially if you are a junk food junkie, a cleanse will help reset your system and flush out tons of toxins. (Just make sure to eat mostly vegan in the days leading up to your cleanse or else you might be in for a pretty harsh change.)
    • Because most bottled, pressed juice cleanses use fruit juice along with vegetable juice, I found that I wanted nothing to do with sweets when I finished day 3 of my cleanse. My sugar cravings were gone!
    • One of the biggest benefits I found from completing my cleanse was that it motivated me to stay on a healthy path for weeks afterward. Mentally, I was so rejuvenated by the 3 days I spent cleansing that the last thing I wanted to do was throw it all away. I continued to replace my morning coffee with green juices and green tea (sometimes even an apple), and I noticed major negative side effects whenever I ate something unhealthy, like pizza or cookies (oops!).

Overall, my juice cleanse was a positive experience for me and I plan on trying one again sometime soon. I think that cleansing for 3 days is plenty of time—I would not suggest doing a longer cleanse because, according to Women’s Health, your body goes into starvation mode after about 4 days. The next time I cleanse, I plan on going to a gentle yoga class or spending a few minutes in a steam room to sweat out additional toxins. But enough about me! Let’s hear what you have to say…

Have you ever tried a juice cleanse? If you have, what was your experience? If not, is it something you would be willing to try?

Leave your stories, reviews, and experiences below. I’d love to see what you guys have to say about “getting juiced!”

Team LC

P.S. If you’re ready to start juicing, I suggest trying one of the 3-day cleanses from Kreation Juice. All of the juices are delicious and energizing! It’s my personal favorite. Kaeng Raeng also makes a great detox cleanse. Read more about it by clicking here.

    I have never tried a juice cleanse but it sounds like a good idea so I would give it a try!

    Great post! So detailed and enlightening, thank you so much!

    I’ve really enjoyed this company’s recipes for green smoothies:

  • Alyssa

    I wish I lived near a juice bar to do this kind of cleanse! Most of the people I know who have done cleanses haven’t made it through and were VERY irritable. I want to give this one a try. I have the worst sweet tooth, so it would probably benefit me if it will lessen my sugar cravings! Thanks for the incite. :)

  • Lenka

    I’m really glad you posted about your cleanse because I failed the first time I tried to do a 3-day cleanse, read my blog post here: . I really want to try to do it again and I think one of the problems the first time was that I did a tough CrossFit workout in the morning of the first day of the cleanse and I felt like I couldn’t replenish myself. I already eat a very healthy, mostly vegan diet, so this shouldn’t be that hard me! Thanks for inspiring me to try again!

  • Ambi s

    I love the LC blog, but from a health perspective (from my knowledge as a medical student), there is absolutely no medical benefit to juice cleanses.

    In fact, that ‘kick’ you speak of is your body in ketoacidosis (this is not a normal bodily process), which is associated with renal problems and bad breath. Juicing means your body is not digesting fibre, which is important for a healthy gut.

    As a future doctor, think it’s important to point this out before readers go and splash out on lots of expensive juices!

    However, I’m glad to see you’ve stressed this is not a lifestyle choice, and merely a short-term plan if people did want to try it.

  • Leanne

    Sounds really interesting! I use juicing to supplement my daily diet for additional vitamins. I always have a juice after working out too.

      I read your blog piece. It seems to me that you are obsessed with food. The only time I was thinking like that is when I had an eating disorder years ago. Seriously guys it is simple. Try to eat things that are more healthy for you more and try to eat things that are not less. Of course if you are overweight you should be thinking about portion control. I might have a craving for pizza and sometimes I eat it. But I try to cook at home and have a well balanced diet. I eat far less red meat and eat out less often these days. I eat more fruits and vegetables. I am kind of flextarian. I mostly eat poultry and fish with sometimes vegatarian kinds of foods. I don’t think about it much. If I have a craving for something “bad” sometimes I give in because the big picture of how I treat my body is what is most important. Starving yourself is not healthy guys. If I would do something like this I would try to eat fruits and veg one day a week. I would not juice but eat them whole. Maybe I would add nuts. It might detox your system. In the end extream diets are unhealthy for the body.

      Mine was so I build an online juice community! Great site to socialize about – Juice Diet, Juice Fast, Juice Detox (all the same thing really)

  • tiffany newman

    can i make my own juices

  • hooleywithaz

    i don’t think i would ever try a juice cleanse, although i do know some people who have done them. i would be more likely to replace a coffee with a juice, or to use one as a supplement to my diet.

  • Rachel Trampel

    I have definitely thought about doing a juice cleanse, but I never know the right way to go about it. I would be willing to give it a try at least.

  • Taanjaa

    Seems like you had a really good experience! Don’t know if i could ever do it!

  • My Style Diary

    Very interesting post! Unfortunately a cleanse would be too expensive for me.. would there be a way to make them myself?

  • Vee

    I have always wanted to try a juice cleanse, once I highly considered the lemonade cleanse.. That said, I have also heard of lot of negative feedback about these cleanse.. It’s nice to hear about a positive experience.

    – Vee

  • Lizzy

    This is so encouraging! I’ve always wanted to try a juice cleanse, and based on your positive feedback I’m even more excited to try it! It’s not really in the cards financially at the moment, but hopefully sometime in the near future I can give it a go!

  • Chelsea Beck

    I did the BluePrint Cleanse around last November and loved it! The juices were delicious, not crazy with the sugars and I never felt tired. I was so hydrated, no headaches or drowsiness. I wish I had the funds to do the cleanse at least one day every week.

    Since then, I’ve bought a Breville juicer, but can’t seem to make anything taste as good as BPC does. I cannot wait to do another cleanse, but up it another level and exercise during it. I definitely recommend Blueprint!

  • Jeri Leigh Siss

    Ive done a juice cleanse and hated it. My body felt awful and I ended up compromising my immune system and ended up getting sick! I actually came across an AMAZING (and CRAZY) wrap that I do at home, once a week or so, that works wonders to tighten and tone. Plus, if I have been eating poorly, I can definitely tell the difference it makes to flush out my system!!!

  • JennaLee

    I would love to do something like this. Is there any place that you know of that ships their smoothies? I am in upstate NY and there are no juice bars around me but I think my body could truly benefit from a day of no digestion.

  • Kelly

    Inspired like so many others by the “”Fat, Sick, and Nearly Dead”” documentary, I decided to go ahead and try an juice fast for 3-5 days. I wen out and bout and juicer and all the fruits and veggies I would need to begin this. And seriously, I have felt the exact same things as stated by you above. I actually “”lol’d”” when I got to your day 2 bc it was the exact same thing. Day one was amazing. Couldn’t believe that juice would fill me up and satisfy me. Also. On day 2, I woke up before my alarm went off and was not one drop tired at that hour like I normally would be. I made my juices for the day and went off to work. Later on my way home is went it also went down hill. I felt like I was turning into a food monster and wanted something to freaking chew. But I powered trough it and survived.
    I am on the morning of my day three. I feel great. Like you said, no hunger pains like last night. I even made bacon for my Fianc

    I wish I could do the full out real deal juice cleanse. I couldn’t afford it :/ I tried getting all the stuff from whole foods, but superfoods are pricey!! lol. I ended up getting the “”Greens”” powder, which is only like $28 a month. It’s not bad at all. Getting my husband to drink it was a different story lol.


    My name is Sandra and i want to testify of the good work done by a faithful Dr Osoba, a spell caster. in my life i never thought there is such thing as spiritual intercession. my problem started nine months back when the father of my kids started putting up some strange behavior, i never knew he was having an affair outside our matrimonial home. it dawn on me on that faithful day 19th of April 21st 4:23pm when he came to the house to pick his things that was when i knew that situation has gotten out of hand and he then told me he was quitting the marriage which i have built for over five years, i was confused and dumbfounded i called on family and friends but to no avail. two months after i started having problem with my kids welfare rent-age and all of it, i really went through hell. until a day i was browsing on the internet and i happen to meet a spell caster i never believed on this but i needed my man back so i gave the spell caster my problem at first i never trusted him so i was just doing it but you know a problem shared is half solved after a week my husband called me telling me that he his coming back home and that was all. now we are living happily and i still do contact him on this email: [email protected]

    When I married my husband I was already pregnant and so I didn’t have a job. He had a really good job though so I was able to stay home and take care of our son when it was born. When we had our second child we moved to a bigger house, but then strange things started to happen. Things would fly off the walls and doors would slam at night. Our oldest son talked about seeing figures and hearing voices. We consulted a medium and they said the house was haunted. After living there about a year more with only minor occurrences we moved out. That was when the bad luck started to happen. Everything started to fail, with my husband’s job, our money and our luck in general. I went back to the same medium and they told me that a spirit had followed me and placed a curse upon me for disturbing it and not being respectful in the previous house. He tried to remove it but was unable. The misfortune kept going on and getting more severe as I tried to search out someone to break the curse. But when I found Dr.Azonto spell he finally did it. Things started turning around almost immediately after he cast the spell and have been great from there! This was really a miracle for us, thank you . azontotemple@ yahoo. com spell from the bottom of my heart!

    juicing has become such an important part of my life!

    juicing shows your digestive system some love, helps you load up on energy-inducing nutrients, gives your skin a pretty glow, gives your cravings the middle finger, and helps your pants get a little looser. read more about those benefits here:

  • TinCity

    This is a very informative article, but you should read the great reviews for the ACAI detox cleanse system on Amazon: – this is what help me may a great choice.

  • kas

    I’m absolutely hooked on juicing since I was introduced to it some years back as an alternative to buying juice at the supermarkets. I must admit I’ve thought of it as a cleanser.

  • zarahi

    Is the wrap that everyone is talking about that you buy or is it a self made wrap?

    I always wanted to do a juice cleanse,but its so expensive. I tried juicing myself and I was so happy, was working great. Great alternative if you want cold pressed juices at a reasonable price try They advertise a $99 cleanse for 3 days which seems great. My friend told me about them, she said it was great but I haven’t tried it myself

    • Ashley

      Thanks for sharing this- looking into it now! :)

  • Ashley

    Thanks for the insight! I’ve been curious about trying a juice cleanse and you’ve given me a clearer picture of what happens on one!

  • Krishyl

    This is truly inspiring!
    You know what, I really want to try this out. But I am still doubtful if I can really make it since I have tons of work to do. And If I’ll go for detoxifying my body, I am afraid that I might not be able to do my work effectively (I might faint or something) since I am used to eat rice and viand all the time (3x a day). Will you be able to help me on how to start without sacrificing my workload? Thank you!

    • Judith

      Hey Krishyl, I think I eat just like you and today is my third cleanse day. Of course you will be fine. I have more energy, I can’t beleive it!!! I really feel refreshed inside and My body is lighter. I am loving it. Tomorrow, I will start introducing other foods but will keep having the juice (fruits and vegetables) as part of my daily diet.

  • Bo Wong

    I’m on Day 10 of my juice cleanse and feel pretty amazing! My aim is to inspire others to do the same :) I’ve been so busy, been doing my normal gym workouts and the first three days are the worse you have to get over. I’m going to keep going as it seems really easy and my body and mind are loving it! I’ve lost 5Kgs so far and it’s also winter here, so if I can do anyone can. I have two of my guy friends doing it to that have never done one and they are also feeling great. One even sent me a message last night saying he had a random burst of energy and had to do dance do chin ups and pushups to get it out. You can read my 10 day blog here and along with your insightful article it might get others to give it a go :)

  • Krish

    Great article! Indeed, it is one of the best way to cleanse your body. What matters most is that both of your mind and body are conditioned.

  • Happy Healthy Girl

    Juicing is always fun it keeps you refreshed, energetic and healthy. But it is important to follow a proper juice cleanse diet in which you take juices as well as some healthy meals. I recently tried a 5 day body detox diet plan and i really feel fresh. My mind is more creative and my skin has that glow =) If you want to try it too for five days then you can get your diet plan from

    • auree

      dear you should try the juice. it taste nothing like vegie.

  • Elizabeth

    I’m on day 2 of a 3-day juice cleanse and after reading a bunch and talking to my doctor I totally agree with you, three days is really the minimum and maximum for a juice cleanse. Last night (end of day 1) was pretty hard but similar to your experience, I woke up this morning and I felt great! My skin was glowing and feels super soft and I felt like I had plenty of energy. Also, the green juices for some reason taste the best to me. The cleanse I’m on has an orange/red blend the first day, green the second day and purple the third day. The red tasted ok but you could definitly tell there were beets in it and I’m not a fan of beets. The green tastes great because all you’re really tasting is apples and maybe a little cucumber. I also enslaved my husband to do this with me and we even went to SpaWorld ( yesterday to sweat out the toxins. Having him by my side through the ups and downs is definitly key.

  • Catherine Carrigan

    Reading your experience about your cleanse is very encouraging! I’m not even through day one and I’m struggling! I do feel my love growing for more fruits and veggies though – so I think any experience where you embrace plant food is a good one :)

  • diana

    Hi, im planning on Juicing starting tomorrow and I would like to know how many hours in between each of the 6 juices

    • ByKrisB

      She says “I learned from day 1 that I should drink one juice every 2 hours in order to have my last one finished 2 hours before I went to sleep.”

      So try to drink one every 2 hours. :)

    Juicing is always fun it keeps you refreshed, energetic and healthy. today. There are a lot of juice benefits that will cure you off the disease and give you a happy and satisfying life. I mostly drink goji berry juice. It is full of health benefits.

  • Mary T.

    Thank you for this article. I’m on day 2 of my 3-day cleanse and was getting discouraged. I started thinking of all the sugar there must be in these. My cleanse said you can fill in with organic veggies as well, which I have been doing. My head is throbbing today as I didn’t give up the coffee prior to the cleanse. I’m just hoping to get through tomorrow. I don’t feel like I’ve lost any weight with it, which was not my goal but would have been nice. I am just hoping to get back into a healthy lifestyle and workout routine after I’m done.

  • James Cleark

    Wow its really good I also use 3 day juice cleanse that is a type of detox juice for diet that involves raw vegetable and fresh fruit juice, it removes the unhealthy waste from your body and makes you slim and trim. See more at

  • Jen

    Your body is made to digest food, that’s it job. It doesn’t need a break, if you’re eating healthy on a regular basis then your body can function properly and do it’s job. Your body needs food and fuel to survive. You couldn’t do your regular workout because you didn’t have the fuel your body needed. Juice cleaneses are a trend that are not healthy for the body.

    • Sue

      Thank you!!!

    • Sandra

      Hi Jen, makes sense. There is one thing however, and that is the fact that most women do it for looks and to be thin. The real problem is that our environmental situation is such that most people are storing toxins, no matter how healthy they live… over time this may manifest in chronic conditions, according to your genetic propensities. Off course it is a good idea to give the body the best fuel possible, so it’s natural ability to detox is enhanced, veggie juicing could be one of them in combination with some other things. I myself have a veggie juice every morning, but eat also normal during the day. However, I didn’t start feeling as good as I do now, until I removed all heavy metals from my brain and cells recently, these heavy metals are stored in your brain, attached to your cell membrane and prevent good nutrition to take effect. I would highly recommend all to do the same and clean up what matters most first, and then all nutrition will work much better, here is where I got it

  • Sue

    Plans like this don’t actually ‘detox’ or ‘cleanse’ your body. Your major organs like liver and kidneys do that with little regard to what you eat. If you want to eat healthier in general, that’s a great idea, but don’t think ‘detoxing’ is an actual thing.

    • Wilma

      We are what we eat. Your body *highly regards* everything you put into it.

      The liver filters blood. Like any filter it can get clogged by what’s going through it. If diets consist of large amounts of fats (fatty liver) the excess will “spill over” into your blood stream. (AST/ALT) Blood tests detect the elevated liver enzymes emphasizing the damage due to poor diet.
      Change of lifestyle (diet) – perhaps jump started via a juice detox cleanse is a fast way to have patients feel better, and is one of the best ways to ASSIST your body into wellness without medication.
      Furthermore, post cleanse: it is absolutely necessary that patients continue to eat a well balanced healthy diet in order for the liver to continue to recover.
      A 3 day cleanse, while not for everyone, if organic isn’t dong any more harm than good.
      I am confused by your repeated resistance to this choice of folks to try to become healthier.



  • Sarah

    I’m kinda funny about the whole “toxins” thing… if you’re not actually seeing any negative side effects, its very very unlikely that your body is retaining “toxins”, as its kind of your body’s job to get rid of them. As long as you’re drinking enough water, that shouldn’t be a problem, surely?
    Although I get it for the whole weight loss and psychological rejuvenation and to motivate yourself, I guess?

  • Sarah

    Now I’m gonna go have some cake

  • Adrienne

    I am not a troll, but just someone with common sense. Don’t starve yourself. It is not a good idea. Foods have fiber in them that is enough to clean you out naturally. If you drink water and eat vegetables regualarly you are cleaning yourself out. But it is scary unhealthy to not eat and just drink vegetable juice for a week or three days whatever. If you read that person’s thing that she had a link to it does sound like she is obsessed. Women need to not think to much or worry to much about food. I have plenty of women friends that get into diets that look just fine. Just warning is all. You are more welcome not to take some friendly advise is you wish. Goodday

      I think you make a lot of sense. and I think it comes from a good place.

      Juice has plenty of fiber! just not insoluble fiber that cannot be digested

    What an encouraging post! But I guess one doesn’t have to be as drastic as you, Allison. I recently discovered matcha green tea powder. This is basically ground green tea leaves and they contain a tremendous amount of antioxidants. You’d have to drink 10 (!) cups of regular green tea to get the same health benefits. Ever since I’ve started to include this superfood into my diet, I’ve been feeling way more energized and overall great. If anyone wants to find out more about it:
    Btw: There’s an awesome, easy to make Matcha Ice Tea recipe ; )

    I have been drinking a shake for breakfast and one for lunch, with pineapple, banana, and various berries, sometimes I add kale & cucumbers… I have never felt a sugar crash, to the contrary, my energy is stable from morning to about 10:00 pm; no crashes or weirdness. I think the problem is that you buy the juice; and it does have tons of sugar. It’s better when you make it yourself, that way you control exactly what you are drinking. Juice is always fresh also. It’s not good to store fresh fruit juice for more than two or three hours… I noticed it turns more sugary. So I always make exactly the same measure I am going to drink, and I drink it immediately. It makes a big difference. I have been doing this for the past 5 months and I fee really good. The only down part is that at some point you start craving for hearty meals, and if you don’t watch it, you’ll be eating heavy at night. So I make an effort to having a good green salad with a steak or chicken or something like that before 7:00 pm and I go to bed by 10:00 pm. Always drink at least 2 liters of water.

    Thanks for the advice, I have been thinking about doing a 3 day cleanse (nothing longer). However, I’m so sorry to be a stickler for grammar (I edited my college newspaper) but you LOSE weight and your jeans get LOOSE. There is one spot (under CONS, dot #4) where you used the word loose when you meant lose. Again sorry, I know corrections are annoying but I read internet articles daily and come across grammar errors daily. You write well so I wanted to make sure your article glows as much as you do!

    I have Crohn’s disease which means that my intestines are inflamed and digestion is painful. It’s like sandpaper on a wound during a flare-up. Many gastroenterologist a (mine included) suggest liquid diets when these flare ups occur. In my case, a liquid diet is better for me and a lot less painful than eating solid foods. Even healthy things, such as raw vegetables and nuts can cause me pretty significant abdominal pain. Juicing these things when I flare is the best option for me. So perhaps people’s reasons for pursuing this diet occasionally is not related to looks or losing weight or detoxing, but for comfortable digestion that many people take for granted. Just some food for thought. :)

    For me the lady soma detox worked immediately.Im a 32 female and The way i digested food was pretty bad. This product hasnt really done much to curb my appetite but i do feel a little less bloated after a meal. After 1 week my urine would flow normally and bowel movements were nice and normal too for a change. I couldnt be happier with the results.

    Juice fasting is a great tool, in my opinion. Its not for everyone; and yes it is hard but sometimes its good to challenge yourself both mentally and physically. I have done two juice fasts, one for 21 days and another for 5 days. While both were difficult the benefits were obvious – weight loss as well as mental clarity and an overall feeling of wellness. I haven’t posted about the actual juice fasts yet, but I have written a bout the importance of buying a good juicer and the difference between a centrifugal and masticating juicer here:

    Happy juicing :)

    I’m on day 3 of my juice cleanse and I feel amazing. Day 2 was definitely the hardest and I would recommend avoiding restaurants all together. After watching the documentary “Fat, Sick and Nearly” I was inspired to give it a try, and I’m so happy I did!

    nice post.

    I had an amazing experience with my juice cleanse through

    By Day 2 I actually had more energy. Didn’t feel tired, didn’t feel beat down. I was more alert and active at work.

    I think Juice Cleanse’s are a great way to revitalise.

    Hi guys! Don’t know what you’ve heard about Suja Juice but they have TERRIBLE customer service. Been trying to get a hold of them about doing a group juice cleanse and no one ever answers their phone or answers our emails. We’ve left several messages and nothing! We tracked down the co-founder Annie Lawless on Instagram who is busy posting away on her fabulous life. We left a comment on one of her pictures about why we haven’t gotten any answers and she deleted the comment within hours!! Please support a company that cares about their juice AND their customers!!! I recently went with Project Juice and they are amazing! Good luck juicing!

    I have heard that some people have dropped up to 30 pounds
    in 30 days. That seems so crazy to me, but I have seen people drop lots of wait
    really fast. I agree that some cleanses are a bit prices but if you can find a
    good one you’re well on your way.

    I have found one called ‘Total Wellness Cleanse’ and found
    it to be very honest and straightforward. You also get a good guide and lots of
    reference material for when you are about to ‘freak-out’ or when you think to
    yourself ‘I can’t do this anymore.’

    If anyone else has a review for total Wellness Cleanse I’d
    love to hear their thoughts on the topic.
