We start with juice cleanse – PART 1

OK, first things first

We have to start with our own bodies. Our body should be clean, non-toxic and alkaline to be healthy. One sure shot way of cleansing your body and getting rid of toxins is juice cleanse.

Juice cleanse also known as “juice fasting” is a form of detox diet. The participant will drink juice drinks made of natural fruits and vegetables at regular intervals throughout the day. You will need to consume a juice every 2 hours. This serves two purposes. Firstly to keep hunger at bay and secondly the body uses more energy to breakdown the foods helping to lose weight.

The schedule

The process will begin with drinking 8 glasses of water a day and cutting out any processed foods such as sugary drinks, processed meats, fast foods, and alcohol. After the initial 3 days the participant will only consume water and 6 fruit juices every 2 hours throughout the day for a period of time. Once the juice days are complete then the participant will follow a plan for the remaining 3 days. The participant will gradually add solid foods; the first day will be made up off fruit and veg. The second day will be made up of fruit, veg, nuts and the third day will allow you to introduce grains.

How often to cleanse?

You can cleanse as often as you feel the need. You can cleanse every month if you wish starting with 3 days preparation followed by three days just juice then 3 days easing back into solid food. You can prolong the juicing days to 5 or more days. However you will find it easier to juice if you are doing it at a time in your life when you are happy and settled. It is not recommended to juice in times of emotional stress or if you are pregnant or nursing as your bodies’ demand of food may be higher than usual and may encourage the unwanted side effects.
