Hi guys, Happy New year (better late than never),
Yesterday I started the 3 day juice detox to increase my energy and aids digestion. I’m focusing on boosting my energy, immune system, stimulating and detoxing my organs. It will be body cleansing rather than a weight loss.
Throughout the cleansing process, I’ll document what I’m feeling and going through just so I could share my experience with all of you.
● Woke up at 6am and started the day with a greens-based juice, kale, spinach, romaine, celery, cucumber, parsley, lemon and apple. Amazing combo! This gave me tons of energy and I didn’t even miss my cup of coffee.
Afraid of feeling exhausted during the day, so I didn’t want to work out. I decided that taking a brisk walk was a nice cardio substitute.
● 2pm, my energy levels were starting to crash a bit and I felt like I needed something with protein. Luckily my next juice had 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 cupcakes.
●I kept busy at night. After doing laundry, and a little late-night 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
● Before starting the cleanse. It’s best to eat a mostly vegan diet for three days before the cleanse, as well as the three days afterwards. So the body doesn’t go into extreme shock when you start to feed it only juices.
● Stocked up on fruits and veggies, vegetable soup, and even picked up some green juices to get palette accustomed to the taste. I weaned myself off of my morning coffee and opted for green tea instead.
●I 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.
