Fit Food: To Cleanse or Not to Cleanse?
The first couple weeks of those New Year’s resolutions are usually pretty easy; it’s come mid-January that your willpower can start to wane… If eating healthy or losing weight was on your list for 2012, doing a juice cleanse is great way to kick things back into high gear. I would usually do one every few months before I was pregnant to help keep myself on the healthy eating track.
If you’re considering doing a cleanse for the first time though, make sure you know what to expect. No, you will NOT drop permanent pounds just from a three to five-day liquid diet—you’ll pack it right back on once you start eating solid foods again. What I can always count on from a juice cleanse, however, is a cleansing of my palate. Once I rid my body of the refined sugar and processed foods, I actually stop craving them! Which means healthier eating in the weeks to come…
My favorite cleanse is from Pressed Juicery. Their juices are DE-licious and they ship to anywhere in the U.S. if you’re not in L.A. Love, love, love that Detox 2! It’s made with pineapple, green apple and mint.
