A couple weeks ago I tried a juice cleanse for the first time. Two friends of mine at our elementary school have a company called Reset Meals so I thought it was a good excuse to try it. It was a crazy week though that I picked. It’s normally a 5 day cleanse but since I had two full days of filming scheduled that week I decided just to do it for 2 days. But that’s not how things ended up working out. Here’s how it went…
I loooved it. By the second day I was feeling awesome. I had a ton more energy and felt super pumped about the busy week ahead. I felt so good in fact that I emailed my friends that night and asked to continue the cleanse for the full 5 days. They dropped off more juice + food the next morning (their cleanse is 4 juices and one healthy, plant based meal).
In all honesty, there was some cheating that happened at a dinner party Wednesday night and Friday at a big photoshoot we had in our home. All in all it was awesome and it made me stop and think about what changes I should make to my diet to always have that kind of energy level. I’ve started doing a little experimenting on elimination with just caffeine + artifical sweeteners so far. But after Japan I’m going to also try eliminating meat, dairy, and sugar. Something is dragging me down here.
Have you done a cleanse before? What did you think? Have you experimenting with eliminating things from your diet to see how it made you feel? I think I might do this juice cleanse thing once every other month or so. It really was amazing to me!
