And no, I don’t mean hittin’ the ‘roids.
I mean THIS kind of juicing…
Fresh veggie and fruit juice kind of juicing. Beet juice. Carrot juice. Kale juice. Pear juice….Kind of juicing. Juice for 3 days straight kind of juicing.
BUT WHY?! You may ask? Well because I’m hoping to clean out my system and give it a good ol’ reboot and hopefully curb some of my cravings.
So here’s the plan: 6 drinks a day, 1 every 2 hours, for 3 days – no solid food – just water in between. If you want more details check this out – it’s where I got my juice and details the drinks a bit more. There’s also a detox blend thrown it (a take on the Master Cleanse) which has lemon, water, cayenne pepper, and cane syrup. At night there’s a cashew milk to drink which helps with satiety in order to sleep without hunger pangs.
Now what do I expect to get out of this? Well, I hope to cleanse by body of all the toxins that I put in. Yes, we all know, I’m a healthy eater but I’ve diverged a tad the past few months with sugar, (cookies, ice cream, and chocolate became a nightly dessert requirement) caffeine (1-2 cups a day somehow became enough coffee to equal 2 or 3 Starbucks Trentas – the café SUPERSIZE), and alcohol (a true lush, a wine-o, margarita lovin’, craft beer sippin’ regular).
On top of all that, I’ve been having horrible digestion issues that I can’t seem to find a trigger for. It’s a hot burning sensation in my stomach with striking pains that come and go, lasting for 2-3 days at a time.
After researching the detox/cleanse I found that it has the potential (keyword!)
1) To cure my cravings: be gone caffeine and sugar demons!
2) Clean out my toxins: buh-bye Splenda stockpile and unwashed veggie pesticides
3) Reset my body: fingers-crossed the abundance of nutrients will help get my stomach on the digestive fast track!
I know these aren’t guaranteed results but I have high hopes!
So check back over the next three days for my take on the 3 Day Cleanse and to see if I actually had the willpower to make it through it.
