Pick Your Cleanse
Choosing a cleanse be hard there are a lot of amazing products out there. I decided to go with JUS by Julie because its a blended juice compared to a cold pressed. Cold pressing juice removes all of the fiber in the fruits and vegetables, where as blended juice incorporates the whole fruit and vegetable, including the skin and fiber, where many important nutrients are found. The texture is thicker, and almost like a smoothie.
Every smoothie is made with whole vegetables and fruits designed to evict the unwanted toxins from your body while fueling you with essential fiber, nutrients and vitamins. Each bottle is assigned a number (1-6) to let you know the proper order to drink them in.
Yes, the goal of cleansing is to curb your solid food intake, but if you need an extra boost, you can have:
• 2 cups raw or steamed green vegetables
• Up to 3 egg whites at dinnertime
• 1 to 2 cups of coffee or green tea, unsweetened or with a little Truvia/Stevia
You will be Hungry
Juicing can be hard, lets face it your only drinking liquid for 3 days. Even with the blended juice, I found they still didn’t completely fill me up. But the fact your having a juice every two hours you are not starving that’s for sure. I did for dinner have some green veggies to keep my full into the evening when I find myself snacking most. It really did help me get over the hump until the next morning.
Stick to it
The fact that it was only 3 days made things a little easier. I have to say over all I didn’t have any crazy side effects using Jus by Julie. The blended style of juice helps you get all the nutriments your body needs. To be honest I was expecting having a 3 day headache and no energy. But I actually felt good! be I will defiantly be doing this again after the holidays. I know my eating habits over the Christmas holidays can get a little crazy and this 3 day program is just what I ll be needing!
