How to Juice Cleanse

Every now and then I like to give my body a break from a solid food and do a juice cleanse.  Our bodies are trained to digest food all day every day, so from time to time it’s important to give our digestive system a rest.   I find this to be vitally important for my health, both physically and mentally.  Fresh fruit and vegetable juices provides a way for us to get easily digested nutrients into our bodies.  Not to mention, you will feel so hydrated and rejuvenated!  Doing a juice cleanse is a fantastic way to jump start a healthy diet, weight loss, and reset your system with nutrient rich fluids!

Pre- Cleanse:
Drink 8 glasses of water a day
Eliminate the bad foods in your diet ie. cokes, processed sugar, fried foods, alcohol etc.
Cut back on caffeine
Try and eat a plant- based diet during the days leading up to your juice cleanse.
Lighten up your diet to help with hunger cravings

During Cleanse:
Start each day with 1 glass of hot lemon water
Make sure to drink your 6 juices each day
Stay on schedule with your juices.  Try and drink 1 juice every two hours. 
Try to avoid any solid food because it slows the detox and cleansing process
If you have to eat, choose organic fruits or veggies
Light exercise

Post Cleanse:
Start easing solids foods back into your diet.  Start with organic fruits and vegetables the first day.  The second day add nuts, seeds, and organic grains.  The third day you can add organic meats and fish.
