Today is day 1 of my 3 day juice cleanse with Just Organic Juice. I am feeling excited and motivated to get myself detoxified and feeling good.
If you look at their website they have 3 different cleansing options. One for beginners called the Soft Boot, then their signature cleanse, the Hard Boot, that is designed to detox and help shed pounds, and the last one is the X Boot which is their ultimate detoxifier. I decided to go with the Hard Boot. I wanted a challenge and to get as much of a benefit out of this opportunity as I possibly can.
They have a 1 day, 3 day, or 5 day cleanse. I decided to give 3 days a try (since this will technically be my first juice cleanse...I do juice quite often and I've done other cleanses but this will be my first time trying one that is strictly juice for 3 days straight. Wish me luck.) The cleanse consists of 5 different juices per day. Green Envy, Greatfruit-n-mint, Roots, Clorofeelgood, Just Beet It, and Almondelight. (The last one I'm most excited about. hehe) They recommended lots of water and we can have any clean herbal teas. Light exercise, epsome salt baths. Overall I am really excited for this experience and I'll be doing a follow up on how it went for me on Thursday. (As well as giving away a 3-day juice cleanses to a one of you on my instagram-@runstylerun so stay tuned.)
Just so I get this question out of the way...Why am I doing this? Juice cleanses aren't just to lose weight! As I read through their website I was completely convinced that they really are so good for you to do to give your body a re-boot. I loved a lot of what Just Organic Juice said about the benefits of juice cleanses. It's to re-boot your metabolism, improve mental clarity, shed unwanted pounds, and feel an increase in overall energy! It helps reset you appetite control thermostat by providing the body with the nutrients it needs. It also helps improve circulation to the body's cells. We are literally "spring cleaning" our body. (Yay for spring coming this month...More than ever I'm thinking about swimsuit season. eeeek) The juice cleanse helps your body flush out toxins while infusing necessary vitamins and minerals. All in all, it helps the body to essentially renew and heal.
Check back Thursday to see how it went for me.
