Juice Cleanse DIY
Still interested in trying the juice cleanse? Here’s your juice cleanse diy. For the juice cleanse you can prepare any and as many types of fruits and veggies you’d like in your juice or smoothie. But avoid adding too much sugar (you can opt for low-calorie sweeteners) or fruits that are high in sugar.
Leading up to your cleanse, you need to wean yourself from certain foods. Gradually lessen and remove your intake of coffee, sugar, dairy, alcohol, and wheat.
If you smoke, you should also call it quits leading up to the fast. This is to help you control any cravings or withdrawal symptoms that might arise from the fast.
Drink, drink, drink
During the entire fasting process, you should be drinking 32 ounces of juice or smoothie with at least half of it being made up of vegetables.
Breaking the fast
After fasting, you need to be careful with the amount of food you eat because your stomach will be sensitive. Eat lightly for a few days following the fast. Gradually include foods into your meals in the following days.
A juice cleanse is a diet trend that is said to help cleanse your body of toxins by only drinking fruit and vegetable juice for a set amount of time. While it boasts a lot of benefits like overall health and weight loss, there aren’t enough scientific studies now to give enough credence to it.
However, science does agree that fruits and vegetables are beneficial to the body, and upping our intake can be good for your health. While we can’t solely rely on it, introducing more fruit and vegetables to our diet is beneficial.
