So I’ve had lots of questions and interest in doing a juice cleanse, and I thought I would clarify what it is exactly 🤷🏽♀️My first juice cleanse was in October last year, so I was a newbie to this whole concept. I had done fasting and cleansing before, but never juicing 🍹 Fasting and cleansing are powerful healing tools. I have done a 4 day fast before, where I only drank water, and this was challenging and empowering at the same time 💧I needed to take life very easily during this fast and sleep a lot. My first juice fast was 30 days, because I had a health issue that I needed to take action on and I was amazed at how much energy I had and how fully functional I was while on this cleanse 🤸🏽♂️ Juice fasting allows us to cleanse while still supplying us with loads of nutrients to fully function while healing our bodies. In fact, it is a much kinder way to cleanse, because the truck loads of nutrients make the process of detoxification much smoother 👍🏽 Yes there were times during my 30 days where I felt tired, hungry and challenged, but a lot of the time I felt clarity, energy and abundant health 🤗 Juice cleansing involves drinking freshly made juices which are made up of 60+% vegetables (lots of greens) and 40% or less fruit. My cleanse is not restrictive, so you can drink as much juice as you require, provided it is mostly vegetables 🥒🥬🥕I made between 2.5-3.5 litres a day. You can also drink water, herbal teas (caffeine free) and coconut water. That’s all. And just to be clear, you will need a juicer –not a blender –to make your fresh juices 👌 If this is your first time doing a cleanse, I recommend starting with 7 days to give your body a wonderful reset. It is also not recommended to jump straight into a cleanse, it is best to adjust your diet and habits the week leading up to a cleanse by reducing caffeine and alcohol intake, 🍻 eating less meat and sugar and increasing your intake of whole foods 🥑🥦🌽 If you have any more questions, please feel free to message me. My cleanse group is running from the 20th January through till late February.
