starting on Monday of this week, I did a 3-day juice cleanse from BluePrintCleanse. I chose the Renovation since I’ve never done a juice cleanse before, and knew I’d appreciate a variety in the juices I drank throughout each day.
the box was delivered to my apartment last Sunday afternoon.
I was curious about the effects of a juice cleanse, but ultimately decided to do the cleanse as part of a review for work, and I want to note that it was complimentary . juice cleanses are expensive, averaging $200 for a 3-day cleanse.
as someone who loves to work out (in some form) most days of the week, I knew I would need to take extended rest time from my regular exercise routine. Fresh pressed juices don’t provide the nutrients needed to repair muscles after a workout, and the last thing I’m looking to do is intentionally lose any fat or muscle mass.
I did still ride my bike to work everyday, and of course there were headstands…
I was hesitant to do the cleanse at first, but figured 3 days wouldn’t affect me in the long-term, and I could stop the cleanse and resume eating if I felt extremely fatigued or hungry – I have a fast metabolism.
- 6 juices each day, I drank mine from roughly 8:00am – 8:30pm
- space your juices at least 1 hour apart
- finish your last juice 2 hours before your bedtime
- drink as much water as possible throughout the day (hot green tea is ok, too)
- refrain from eating any solid foods
I took notes throughout each day and night to keep track of how I was feeling. I have a lot of information to potentially share here about the effects.
before I write a full review:
is there anything specific you would like to know about my experience?
