Check out a 3 day juice cleanse to get yourself back on track to getting in shape for pool season. If you are like me, then you will wait until the last possible moment to start getting in shape for the summer! I have found that one of the best ways for me to kick start There never seems to be a convenient time for a juice cleanse. Drinks and dinners out with friends – life just happens to get in the way.
3 Day Juice Cleanse
It all starts when you go to pick up the first two days worth of juices. Level One consists of an All Greens (Kale, Spinach, Romaine, Parsley, Celery, Cucumber), two All Greens with apple, a Skin Trip, made with Parsley, Spinach, Cucumber, Carrots, Liver Kidney Lymph Detox and Aloe Vera, a Beets Me – a tasty blend of Carrot, Beet, Apple, Pear, Lemon and Ginger – and a pineapple and pear based Royal Flush – with the final juices mimicking dessert at the end of the day. At your consultation, the cleansing coach provides you with helpful tips like how much water to drink, what you can and can’t have and do, and when to consume each juice. The coach is knowledgeable and incredibly nice, too.
Waking up on the first day, the hardest part was breaking the usual morning routine. No coffee (my roommate struggled with this) or the usual breakfast, regular habits can be hard to break. The All Greens is the least sweet, and arguably best for you, and I am glad it was the first juice. It’s a strange feeling, but the day goes by pretty fast when it is broken up into 2-hour increments. I already had a love for the All Greens with apple, but enjoyed the Beets Me and Royal Flush- although the ginger was a little overwhelming for my taste. I found the Skin Trip to be the most filling.
Despite not being hungry, the monotony of only consuming liquids starts to take its toll toward the end of the second day. I started to get bored of not just drinking, but also the lack of variety since I had the same six juices the previous day.
Last day and light at the end of the tunnel! At this point, my body became conditioned to the routine. I knew I would be having juices all day and did not have to remind myself. After finishing the last juice of the day, I felt a sense of accomplishment. A small part of me wanted to treat myself to a morsel of food as a prize, but I knew that opportunity would come soon enough in the morning.
I could chew my food! I enjoyed my granola with soy milk for breakfast, but my usual ravenous pace slowed down. I ate my typical healthy food, but by dinner I lost my appetite and had a hard time eating my quinoa salad. I definitely think my stomach shrunk, but I welcome the return of a physical sense of portion control that I lost so long ago.
