Most people this time of year are thinking about buckling down on their diets. What I have found works best is to take it in small steps. Start with changing your eating for just a few days — with a 3-day juice cleanse — and it is remarkable what positive transformation will follow.
Juice Cleanse Diet: We recommend a 100% juice cleanse because eating slows down the juice cleansing process. If you need to eat during your juice cleanse, choose organic fruits, vegetables or soaked nuts and seeds. You also can try smoothies and vegan food, which are raw, gluten-free and very nutritious.
Exercise: Limit yourself to light exercise, such as walks, yoga, and stretching. Your energy levels will change when you’re on a juice cleanse, so pay attention to what your body needs before exercising.
Activities: We suggest doing introspective activities while juice cleansing such as writing in a journal, meditation, walks in nature and listening to gentle music. Avoid places with loud noise and a lot of activity; you might be more sensitive during your juice cleanse than usual. Make sure you have a lot of free time to take care of yourself.
After you Juice Cleanse Diet: Return gradually to eating solid foods after your juice cleanse. During the three days after completing your juice cleanse, follow a diet similar to the pre-cleanse diet. You can eat organic fruits and green vegetables the first day after your juice cleanse. On the second day, add brown rice, eggs and yogurt. Add chicken, fish or meat to the diet 5 to 6 days after the fast. Use your juice cleanse experience to create new, healthy eating habits!
Don’t jump into anything strenuous or exhausting right after your juice cleanse. Continue to take time to relax and integrate your juice cleanse experience back into your life.
Conclusion about a Juice Cleanse Diet: There are truly no limits to what you can achieve on your journey through life, as long as it’s aided by a healthy, nurtured body that functions at its optimal level. So, think of this Juice cleanse as you taking your vehicle in for its tune-up. And when it’s done, you can expect to feel clearer, more optimistic and rejuvenated on the inside, and radiant and lean on the outside!
