I Tried a One-Day Juice Cleanse Challenge

One-Day Juice Cleanse Challenge:

I have always wanted to try a juice cleanse but knew I wouldn’t want more than a day trial considering three days without solid food is too far. With spring break coming up, I have been trying to eat healthy and work out, for the most part. If there was a time to try a juice cleanse it was now.

Orlando has many trendy healthy juice places so when I searched for a juice cleanse many places came up. There were options like Juiced Orlando near Lake Eola but the prices were not student friendly. I finally decided on Jùs by Julie an online store that blends the juices instead of cold pressing them in order to get higher doses of fiber. Honestly, I had no idea what the difference was but the price was relatively economical and the shipping was free.

 I ordered the package and selected the delivery date for after Valentine’s day because I knew I would need a cleanse the day after treating myself. The package contained six juices in cute 16-ounce clear plastic bottles. Also included was a pamphlet of promotions for three to five-day juice cleanses and most importantly directions about the cleanse.

I started the cleanse on a Saturday and stayed super busy in addition to waking up late so that I would not be as hungry. Each of the juices I had throughout the day were different. The flavors ranged from green kale to spicy pomegranate and matched my cravings as the day went on. Mid-day I began to feel starved. I needed food, whether it was a piece of cheese or a crumb of bread. In the pamphlet, there were recommendations for when you absolutely needed to eat like green tea or egg whites around dinner time. I followed the instructions for the most part but I definitely went to bed hungry. I paid $60 dollars for six juices, I needed to follow through with it.

           

The next day I woke up starving of course but I definitely felt skinnier. The scale did not change but I felt relatively Zen and cleansed. Would I do it again? Definitely. My biggest recommendation is to eat less the day before you start the cleanse in order to get your body used to only drinking liquids for a day. In addition, staying hydrated is probably the best thing to get past cravings between once juice and another. In the future, I would like to try a three-day juice cleanse from the same company but just have to wait and save because health is expensive.
