Why should I do a juice cleanse?

Hey everyone, How have you been doing? I know a lot of you are thinking…. why should I do a juice cleanse? There are plenty of good reasons for why people do juice cleanses. There are just so many benefits to juicing, and juice cleanses. Below is a list of people who should not do a cleanse. 

  • Young children
  • Pregnant women 
  • Older adults
  • Those with weak immune systems and low blood sugar

Now, that doesn’t mean they can not drink the juice at all, but they need to have all of the proper nutrients. Now, before you do a juice cleanse, here are a few tips to ensure you have a good cleanse:

Prepare for the cleanse

Many people believe that you don’t need to get your body ready, but if you jump right into your fast, from an unhealthy diet, you may feel sick from the detox symptoms. To properly prepare for your fast, we recommended transitioning from your regular diet to a cleaner diet with raw fruits and veggies. You should also focus on eating smaller portions than usual and eating only to satisfy your hunger. You should incorporate regular, non-strenuous exercise into your routine while drinking enough water to flush out the toxins in your body. Preparing for your fast will help reduce the side effects of fasting, such as nausea, extreme hunger, fatigue, and more.

Plan your recipes

Planning your recipes before starting your juice fast will help you research and be prepared in the kitchen during your fast. Luckily for you, Humble Soul has an ebook filled with juices that we use in our cleanses, and the ebook also has other juicing tips.

Calorie Intake

Doing a juice cleanse may reduce the number of calories in a person’s diet, which can lead to weight loss during a juice fast. Sounds great, right? Well, reducing your caloric intake may lead to dangerous territory. After an extended period without your favorite foods, you might feel like you need to reward yourself after your juice fast is over. Having this mindset might set you back from gaining some of the great benefits from your fast.

Lack of Protein

Our bodies need protein to maintain and build muscle mass, make us feel full, and so much more. When eaten, fruits and vegetables contain low amounts of protein – and can leave us hungry and potentially decreasing our muscle mass. When doing a juice fast, consider drinking a homemade nut-milk beverage (cashew or almond) in between your routine beverages. Juicing dark green vegetables will increase your protein consumption. For example:

  • Kale: 7g protein
  • Watercress: 5g protein
  • Broccoli: 5g protein
  • Baby spinach: 5g protein
  • Cabbage: 3g protein

Slowly breaking the cleanse

This is the question that I get asked the most. 80% of everyone who has done a cleanse usually goes right back to eating the same way. Now, here at Humble soul, we do not judge. I understand more than anyone after 3 or 5 days with no food; you go crazy lol. When you are nearing the end of your cleanse after one to three days, you want to integrate solid foods into your diet slowly. You can do this by drinking smoothies, eating watery fruit, and other soft foods such as oatmeal. This is a great time to go back and revisit your intentions for your juice fast. Move slow and track everything that you’re eating so that you can quickly pinpoint what bothers your body. We recommend continuing to hydrate – you can do this by drinking lemon water, ginger tea, green juice, and more. If you were looking for a “restart” or body detox, make sure to focus on yourself and plan your post-fast meals as much as possible with healthy raw and whole foods. This will help with gravitating away from processed foods and unhealthy snacks after completing your fast.

Check back soon to learn how I do my juice cleanses. Please ask any questions, and I will answer in my post. I hope you have a blessed week.
