I have done a couple of one day cleanses with Blueprint (they sell them at whole foods) and loved it. It’s not nearly as hard as I thought it would be and I actually felt so full between all the juices, water, and tea. I didn’t really feel like I needed to eat anything, as much as I just missed chewing. I’d love to do a full 3 day cleanse, but it’s just a matter of shelling out the money for 18 juices.

Good to know. I was curious how full I would feel

yes! i’m doing a 3-day cleanse from a new juice delivery company in LA – The Real Juice. It’s amazing. I am a plant-based vegan, but have never done a cleanse before and it’s been REALLY easy. The juices are so delicious!!

I’ve done a juicing cleanse for a week and another time for 3 days (making my own with a juicer) and while I believe it’s a great way to kick start your body with tons of vitamins, I don’t think it’s necessary to drink just straight juice when you typically eat a reasonable diet. I admit I felt full most of the time and felt great and happy that I was getting so many nutrients directly. However, I had read that a lot of people who juice get headaches, cranky, tired, and bowel movement problems (i.e. diarrhea) because they are used to a diet full of sugars and processed foods. While I know my diet isn’t perfect, I must be doing something right because I had no adverse effects while doing the cleanse. My opinion is that cleanses are great for people are new to a healthy lifestyle and want to flush out toxins and kick some of their bad cravings. For those who have a healthy lifestyle already and eat what our bodies truly need, I don’t think a complete just juice cleanse is necessary. Maybe just adding a juice into your daily diet or several times a week is the way to go.

I love juice, but am very picky about it. I am lucky that in Charleston we just got a juice place that opened up by one of my boot camps and I love them. Family owned and will make it however I want. Don’t think I would do a cleanse but I agree with you, it’s good to get you going in the morning.

THought about getting my own juicer but i think it would take the specialness out of it.

Yeah, I dont think I’m going to buy one. They are really expensive to buy and to buy the foods for them!
