The Biggest Hurdles when Facing a Juice Cleanse
Starting a juice cleanse is a big deal. It’s great that you are taking the proactive measures to ensure your health, but cutting out food from your diet for any period of time can be taxing on your body and psyche. Three of the biggest hurdles that people have when juice cleansing are: Time Management, Regulation, and Cutting of Processed Foods.
Sectioning the Time Off – Juicing is an exhausting process. It will sap energy from you, and it is more than likely to affect your patience.
Regulating your System – Regulating your system is difficult because your metabolism will slow down affecting your body before and after the cleanse.
Cutting Processed Foods – Not only are cutting foods a problem, but processed foods can leave a bigger impact on your stomach when you’re juicing.
How to Prepare for the Juice Cleanse
To combat these three problems, we have five solutions.
Cutting Stimulants – You want to wean off the stimulants at first, but when you are juicing, cut the stimulants entirely. Caffeine and Nicotine will excite the metabolic system which will make you more aware of how hungry you are.
Weaning Hard Foods – In the time before you begin your detox, we suggest minimizing our meal sizes by about 10-15% every day, depending on how often and how much you eat.
Segwaying Fruits and Vegetables – Additionally, you should be cutting your carbs and meats and either increasing or introducing different fruits and vegetables. This will make your body prepared for the juices you’ll be drinking during your cleanse.
Weekend Warrior – If you are going for a three-day close, try and plan it over your weekend. This will let you minimize your interactions during your cleansing, and you can also have some great conversation the next week!
Meditation or Yoga – A great way to maintain your cool during your juicing, try out some meditation, yoga, or even Tai-chi. Many people see juicing as a spiritual experience, and it might elevate your first cleanse.
