A juice cleanse helps you kick-start a healthier lifestyle by replacing your solid food intake with nutritious cold-pressed juices. A 300ml bottle of juice is consumed every 1.5 hours for the duration of 1, 2 or 3 days (don’t worry it’s all there on the bottles). This pumps liquid nutrition into your system and helps in rebooting and recharging your energy meters.
What precautionary measures should I take before/after the cleanse?
2-3 days prior to the cleanse
Drink plenty of water to hydrate your system
Incorporate plenty of raw fruits and salads
Red Meat, Dairy and Gluten
Alcohol and Nicotine
During the cleanse
Start right: Start your day with a glass of warm water with lemon to help digestion
Hydrate: Drink 8 glasses of water a day to aid the cleansing process
Herbal tea: One or two cups of green tea can pep you up
Rest: Try and get 8 hours of sleep each night to help cellular recovery
Move: Avoid intense exercise but try and go for a walk or do some stretching
Reflect: Write down your health goals to commit to a healthier lifestyle, meditate or listen to some music
Healthy: If you have to deviate from the cleanse, choose a raw salad or a piece of fruit to nibble on
3 days post-cleanse
Day 1: Add in raw fruits, salads, nuts & seeds and light veggie soups
Day 2: Add in gluten-free grains (e.g. brown rice) and lentils
Day 3: Add small servings of animal products and eggs if you wish
Don’t jump into anything too strenuous straight after your juice cleanse. It is best to see how you feel and take things at your own pace.
