Quick & Easy Juice Cleansing!
No need to be intimidated by week-long commitments to buy and prepare crazy foods, or drink powdery supplements. The convenience of picking up already blended, organic, fresh juice each morning is as easy as it gets!
Juice cleansing can naturally boost the immune system, flush toxins, oxygenize vital organs and cleanse the intestines and colon. Drinking live, organic vegetable juice results in increased energy , better digestion, and healthy cell growth.
The key is to drink 8 ounces of juice every hour, alternating every half hour with 12 ounces of water. Choosing three days to start may be tricky- no red meat, alcohol, starches and sugars, breads, dairy or cheese is allowed! This 3 Day juice cleanse does allow you to consume a protein rich dinner (boiled egg, chicken, turkey breast or fish with steamed vegetables or salad) and still drink your black coffee!
DAY 1: V6 – LIVER AND BLADDER – 64 ounces
Apple, Beet, Carrot, Celery, Parsley, Ginger
The first 64 ounces of juice is flavorful- similar to a Bloody Mary in color, slightly more earthy in taste. It could use spices and salt, but that’s not on the program, so add a celery stalk for effect. Since the juice is filling, you won’t be hungry, but not eating food is a hard habit to break. You’ll realize how often you reach for a snack when you no longer can! Try dinner of Mahi Mahi and salad. It will be extra delicious and rewarding.
DAY 2: GREEN JUICE – 64 ounces
Celery, Cilantro, Cucumber, Parsley, Romaine, Spinach
Today’s very green juice tastes like cucumber. It’s drinkable, but towards the end of the day gets daunting. The empty feeling of not eating might be present but not too powerful. Sugar deprivation may be noticeable if you have a sweet tooth by nature. Overall, you should feel energetic, high spirited and keep up your exercise routine.
DAY 3: V10 – ULTIMATE INTESTINE & COLON CLEANSE – 64 ounces
Carrot, Celery, Cucumber, Cilantro, Ginger, Garlic, Tomato, Parsley, Romaine, Spinach, Lemon/Lime
Day three’s juice is the favorite according to The Fountain of Youth juice bar and most drinkers have no problem finishing it by 5pm. While you’re inspired, and before you go back to your regular eating habits, take a trip to the market for healthy grocery shopping. Hopefully the feeling of health and accomplishment will positively affect your choices! Celebrate with a fresh fruit instead of a fatty dessert!
So… Does it work?
You’ll be more aware of what you eat. You’ll find out what cravings are hardest for you to resist and if you suffer from a snacking issue. Juice cleansing is a simple way to recharge, revitalize and jolt your system! You may or may not experience significant weight loss, but you’ll gain plenty of awareness and a feel healthier! Plus it can inspire you to make lasting changes to your diet and routine!
