Juice Cleanse Experiance

23 Posted by - March 11, 2013 - Fashion, Gallery

I wanted to gnaw at my arm on the evening of the first day of my juice cleanse. Those that are avid believers rave how a juice cleanse is a great way to rid your body of toxins, lose a few pesky pounds of belly fat, and acquire more energy. I challenged myself to a 3-day cleanse. I wanted to know what all of the hype was about, so I went online and bought 18 bottles of juice (6/day). Early the next morning, I got a knock on my door by a delivery man that held a cardboard box. Unbeknownst to him, he was carrying my meals for the next 3 days.

On day 1, I felt I signed up for a program of torture. In the morning, I was excited for the cleanse, but by midday, I had a headache and had trouble focusing on anything. I was lightheaded. At lunch time, I noticed my nose was sensitive to the smell of food. My energy was zapped and I went to bed early that evening. There was no energy for exercise.

On day 2, I noticed I had a white-coated tongue, and a weird film on my teeth. Fortunately, my headache went away. Although it wasn’t as bad as the first day, I still craved real food and wanted to chew on something…anything. I treated myself to couple of pieces of gum. I didn’t bother with going to the gym.

On day 3, I woke up with a burst of energy. I felt oddly zen. Did I still want food? Of course I did. I remember it took almost everything in me not to leap across the conference room table as my coworker greedily went to town on a couple of chicken fajitas. After work, I went to a bikram yoga session. Overall, it was a great day.

Right after the cleanse, I felt great! Now that I could eat, I thought I was going to eat like a monster. Instead, my shrunken stomach would only allow me to eat half of what was on my plate. I gradually went back to my normal diet, beginning with a lot of salads after those 3-days, and not a lot of meat. I lost 5-pounds and gained it right back by the end of the week.

If you are interested in juicing, here are a few tips:

• Control your appetite. Make sure that pre and post cleanse you stay in control of your diet. Consume a good amount of fruits and vegetables. Stock up on food that is raw, vegan, as well as veggies, salads, and fish.
• Don’t do it alone. If you can get your friend, roommate, coworker to do it with you, you’ll have a much easier time. The experience will be a lot more bearable. You’ll be able to encourage each other.
• Drink a lot of water. Water helped simmer the hunger down, and it will help with the detoxification process. Drink up.

Will I do it again? Yes, but I’ll customize it with celery here or a granola bar there. I’ll do it on my terms. It was a good readjustment to get myself on track, and it helped stop the cycle of mindless eating.

    I do not know whether it’s just me or if perhaps everybody else encountering problems with your website.
    It seems like some of the written text within your content
    are running off the screen. Can someone else please provide feedback
    and let me know if this is happening to them as well?

    This may be a problem with my browser because I’ve had this happen
    before. Thank you

    Excellent blog! Do you have any recommendations for aspiring writers?
    I’m hoping to start my own site soon but I’m a little lost on everything.
    Would you recommend starting with a free platform like WordPress or go for a paid option?

    There are so many options out there that I’m completely overwhelmed ..
    Any ideas? Thank you!
