BEFORE YOU CLEANSE
As with any worthwhile undertaking, preparation is a key aspect to success. A cleanse is no different. It is important for you to prepare your body for its new cleanse diet in the days leading up to it. Proper preparation will make your cleanse more successful and more enjoyable as well.
In the days leading up to your cleanse, begin preparing by following the instructions below:
- Stay hydrated by consuming at least 8 glasses (16 fl.oz.) of water every day.
- Get plenty of sleep in the days leading up to your cleanse (8+ hours is ideal).
- Eat light by having at least one meal per day consisting of either a salad with a light dressing (such as vinaigrette) or a fruit bowl.
- Be conservative with your meal portions. Get used to consuming and operating on 2,000 or fewer calories per day.
Begin avoiding the following foods:
- Processed Sugar
- High Preservative Foods
If you get used to eating raw fruits and vegetables ahead of time, the cleanse will be a more comfortable experience than if you are used to eating burgers and fries.
Also, try your best to avoid beer and liquor. If you need to treat yourself at the end of the day, a single glass of wine will suffice.
Keep a positive mindset. Do not forget, dedicating yourself to a healthy body and mind will help you achieve your health and fitness goals.
AFTER YOU CLEANSE
Slowly wake up your digestive tract in the two to three days that follow. To accomplish this begin by eating light meals that consist mostly of fruits and vegetables such as green smoothies, salads, fruit bowls, broths, soups, etc. You may also want to limit meats and dairy by adding small portions slowly back into your diet. Avoid processed foods and those high in sugar completely.
DETOXIFY YOUR SYSTEM
The purpose of a cleanse is to detoxify your body and reset your system. Doing a cleanse is also an effective way to jumpstart yourself into a healthy diet and lifestyle. Try to avoid relapsing back into old diet habits now that your body is used to eating healthy foods.
Regular detoxification is a great way to maintain your health. If ever you feel you are straying away from the path to a healthy lifestyle, repeating a cleanse is a great way to get back on track. It would be an excellent habit to cleanse your system with juice once monthly or more.

The wonderful thing about a cleanse is that it can help anyone achieve their health goals, no matter who you are or what your goals are. If you feel that our cleanse has helped you reach your goals, please share your experience with people you love and care about; they will thank you for it.
