What can I expect on a Juice Cleanse?
The first question that almost anyone asks is whether they will be constantly hungry while on the juice cleanse. And 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. For example, one 16 oz. Guru is equivilant to eating one apple, one beet, and 5 carrots! 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 options.
Drink a lot of water! This will help your body flush out all the nasty stuff you have inside and further the detoxification process.
Most importantly, listen to your body. If you need to rest, do so. If you need to eat some solid food, that’s ok! We’re human, after all. If you need to snack on raw fruits, veggies, and nuts while on the cleanse, do so. You know your body better than anyone. We have provided you with instructions on how to consume your cleanse in the delivery package. Drinking the juices in this order is only a suggestion based on our experiences. But everyone is different! Feel free to drink the juices in any order you wish, or whichever feels right.
