Juice Cleanse

15 Dec

I just did this Three day Juice Detox just to clean my system and get some good nutrients in my body.  I chose the Beverly Hills Wellness Center’s Raw Juice Detox.  You pick up all the bottles at once and you’re set for the three days.  Before I started I had people tell me that they were missing food the first day, but after that they were fine and were hardly hungry at all.  These people are liars!  Maybe it worked for them, but I was starving the whole time and I drank an additional two big bottles of Coconut water each day.  Since the detox I haven’t had coffee and don’t feel like I really need it and I did lose 2 pounds (which I’m sure by now if back on).  It was a great mental challenge and if you are considering do this check out Beverly Hills Wellness Center because their juices are freshly prepared and didn’t taste all that bad.  Please share your experience if you have ever done a cleanse.

 

This is a three day juice fast consisting of fresh raw juices designed to help rid your body of toxins, which will help you feel amazing! Each day includes a combination of 2 fruit juices, 2 vegetable juices, 1 nutmilk, lemon/lime-ade or coconut water. A total of six – 16 oz. bottles of juice per day for a total of 18 bottles during a three day fast. Included are guidelines for the fast, as well as instructions on how to break your fast properly. Our toll free 800 number is provided in case you have questions or concerns.
