Prepare yourself for the cleanse
It is good to prepare yourself for two reasons: to avoid detox symptoms such as headache, digestive discomfort, and mood swings. It is equally important to be mentally prepared in order to avoid falling into old habits and impulses to eat. Try to wean yourself of caffeinated beverages, alcohol, refined and processed foods at least a few days before your cleanse. Focus on organic protein, unprocessed fats, fruits and vegetables along with herbal tea and water. Think of a juice cleanse as a marathon: both mind and body need to be prepared for successful completion.
It is important to hydrate your body with pure filtered water w hen you are cleansing. Sure, you will be drinking plenty of liquid in juice form, but additional water will support your body’s ability to flush out the toxins. Drinking water will also reduce the rate the sugar that is absorbed when consuming juice and will allow for more stable energy during the day.
It is a very energy demanding process to cleanse the body. The liver and the kidneys are hard at work. Allow yourself to relax when tired. Take a nap, if possible, and save your energy to be used by your organs for cleansing your body. Listen to music that you enjoy and do activities that makes you happy. When was the last time you lit candles and took a nice, relaxing bath?
Stress less – especially when on a cleanse. Try not to be as busy as possible just to avoid thinking about food. Relaxing activities will support a better cleanse and also keep your mind more balanced and better equipped to complete the cleanse. Stress will make you more “hangry” (hungry + angry)!
Don’t give up on the first day
The first day of a juice cleanse is the hardest. Your brain will receive hunger signals telling you to eat. Remember that you are providing your body with an abundance of nutrients when you are drinking juice, but your body is used to having it›s stomach filled up with solid food and just needs some time to adjust.
When you wake up in the morning of the second day you will most likely have less hunger signals to battle. It can be helpful to drink a cup of warm herbal tea to reduce the feeling of being hungry.
Don’t overeat when the cleanse is complete!!!!
