There are so many reasons to go on a juice cleanse. I did one last month and couldn't have been happier with the results! I saw a dramatic change in my body - I was no longer craving junk food, my skin had improved, and I had even dropped a few pounds. I got my cleanse from juicerxcleanse.com but there are SO many different ones that you can look into to fit your needs/budget. Check out some of the reasons to go on a juice cleanse and how it can kickstart your health:
1. Resting Your Digestive System
Drinking only whole-food juices reduces the amount of input and stress on your gut and digestive system. Your body uses this time to heal and recharge! Doing a juice cleanse is like pressing a 'reset' button on your health and giving your body enough time to play catch-up. This is just one of the many reasons to go on a juice cleanse!
2. Reducing Your Appetite
Juicing eliminates the habit of comfort eating and makes you feel satisfied with less food than usual. When I finished my juice cleanse, I no longer craved those midnight snacks. It opens your eyes to the times you eat when you're hungry vs. the times you eat when you're bored. This provides a big psychological boost to help you start changing habits.
3. No Stress
It's a lot of stress to think about what you're prepping for dinner every night. Juicing makes it easier because it's focused on consuming fresh whole food produce every few hours. It keeps you feeling full which keeps you from feeling stressed all day long!
4. Eliminate Harmful Foods
While on a juice cleanse, dairy, wheat, gluten and fermented foods are eliminated from your diet (as well as coffee and alcohol). Being off these things -- and other common trigger foods -- and then reintroducing them to your body can also help define what foods are causing your body any problems.
5. Weight Loss
At the end of my 3-day juice cleanse last month, I lost four pounds! Results might be different for others; some may lose more, while others lose less. Either way, it's a great way to jump start a diet because it helps control appetite and cravings and is serving your body with all it needs in a low calorie count.
6. Improving Energy
During my juice cleanse, I felt so energized! The first day had me feeling a bit hungry (naturally) but throughout the second and third day, I began to feel much more energy and clarity. I even had enough energy to hit up the gym on those days! By consuming only fresh juices, you'll feel so much better than if you were to drink caffeine.
7. Glowing Skin
As better hydration, removing toxins, and flooding your cells with healing nutrients begins to transform how you feel and look, you'll begin to see a positive transformation in your complexion as well. I definitely noticed that my skin looked clearer and felt smoother after my cleanse!
8. No More Chronic Ailments
Most of the time, our bodies are fighting off our toxic behaviors, contaminated environment, and poor food choices. However, when you give your body a break, you’ll start to see regular symptoms like headaches, general aches, congested sinuses, fatigue, bloating, camping, etc. start to go away. Isn't it amazing how much of a difference a juice cleanse can make in your body?
9. Your Taste Buds
After three days of juicing, your tastebuds will thank you for making them feel so alive. You might even discover a new love for these fruits/veggies!
Well, there you have it. These are just some of the ways that juice cleanses can help get your health back on track. Will you be trying one?
