Whats your plan?
Its important to really think about why you want to start a juice cleanse. There are some amazing benefits you can give your body but if you do not have a goal in mind I would say skip it! A juice cleanse should be used to help you get healthier. Weight loss is the added benefit to cleansing and with a plan for after the cleanse it can really maximize your results and help you reach your goals!
If you do a cleanse and really focus on your goal it can be a great start to a healthy lifestyle as you will naturally start craving healthier foods once you successfully complete your cleanse. A cleanse can really help you feel hydrated. Drink lots of water with your juices daily to help you feel full and flush out any extra toxins. According to livestrong.com cleansing gives your body a rest from digestion. Our bodies are used to breaking down and digesting food all day, everyday for years and years so once in a while its nice to give your body a break by only consuming nutrient rich fluids!
