By now you’ve probably heard that juice cleansing is more than just a trendy diet; for many people, it’s a great way to reset your body and get back to a healthier diet. A three or five-day juice cleanse is particularly beneficial in the spring and summer months when your body is craving nutritious, cooling foods as the days get hotter. While a three-day kick-start to healthy might sound easy and quick, the secret to a successful juice cleanse is to make mindful food choices in the days leading up to and following the cleanse.
Before your cleanse, try to ease into a raw diet. Start by cutting out sugar, processed food, and dairy a week before the cleanse. Eat mostly raw vegetables two days before your first juice. Chowing down on a burger the night before your cleanse will make the first day of juicing extremely difficult!
Perhaps the most important part of a juice cleanse is how you re-introduce food to your body once your cleanse is over. These tips help me to maintain my post-juice glow and even keep off the weight that I shed during the cleanse.
