Before you Cleanse

Enhance your cleanse experience by properly preparing meals before and re-introducing meals after your cleanse. We strongly recommend our cleansers adjust their meals to mostly fruits and vegetables for a minimum of 2 days prior to starting a cleanse. We suggest limiting and removing alcohol, nicotine and caffeine consumption before, during and after the cleanse.

Movement

Move, but please take time to recover properly. If you run 10 miles a day, then limit your activity to 3-4 miles while cleansing. Listen to your body! We advise you move your body in moderate ways like long walks and yoga.

How it Works

Start your day off with water (hot or cold) and lemon. Then you should drink the first juice when you would normally have your first meal and the last juice at least 2 hours before you go to bed. Most people find they reach for a juice every 2 hours. Remember to drink lots of water in between juices! Always listen to your body and if you want a juice in an hour then have it.

Lunch & Dinner Suggestions

  • Green smoothie
  • Salad with veggies (no oil)
  • Steamed veggies with brown rice or quinoa
