My wedding is in 226 days and like most brides, I want to be in good shape, which means knocking off a few or 15ish pounds and TONING! Oh lord I need some toning. Ya feel me? This whole working 80 hours a week kills my time at the gym so I’m trying to make a serious effort to change my eating habits over the next 7.5 months and believe me, I’ll need as much time as I can get. Holy moly just typing that gets me excited. Plug: follow along at #CheekyInCabo. I wanted to kick off my healthy habits with a cleanse so I teamed up with Life Juice to try their 3 day cleanse to rid some of the toxins—aka my weaknesses wine, chips, etc. It’s good to give your body a break from solid food and let fresh pressed juices flush out the bad stuff.
What was it like?
I was pretty hesitant at first. What was it going to taste like? I love food and snacking so was it going to be filling enough? Was I going to be pooping my pants all day? A myriad of questions ran through my mind but luckily Life Juice’s website is full of information that helped me prepare for my 3 day juicing conquest. Read about it here. I drank 6 juices a day for 3 days. The cleanse includes: a Himalayan Sea Salt Citrus Sole to start each day, 4 different juices for the day, Positive Balance, Oh My Greens, Bodacious Bunny, and Oh My Greens filled with vitamins and antioxidants to energize and detoxify each day and a Happy Belly to relax and wind down from each day. The juices were shipped straight to my door in a large reusable Life Juice cooler tote.
Do they taste good or bad?
Day one started with the Sea Salt Solé and I wasn’t sure what to think about it. I will say that at first taste I really didn’t LOVE any of them but by sip 3 or 4 they were actually really good. I’m craving the Bodacious Bunny right now; it was my favorite. I felt good to be putting nutrient-rich foods in my body and the best part was that there was no meal prep. Whenever I diet I feel like I’m spending HOURS in my kitchen which take over my life. No thank you!
So did I get hungry?
Day one, yes. But luckily there is a little cheat sheet of snacks you can have including: celery stalks, 8 raw almonds, a couple of cucumber slices, warm vegetable broth or a half a cup of black coffee. I also made sure to drink plenty of water and some tea. After day one I was shocked at how much my hunger subsided. It’s my first day after the cleanse and I’m still shocked that I’m not hungry.
Did I poop my pants?
Nope. Not at all. Lucky for me I didn’t have any changes in my digestive system, which was really nice.
Did I lose weight?
Oh ya! I lost eight pounds in three days! I actually look and feel skinner. My skin feels better—no breakouts and it looks so much brighter. I feel much less bloated too. Overall I had really good results.
When I do it again?
Heavens yes! I hope to do them every 2-3 months or so leading up to the wedding. I highly recommend it.
