Most people can reset their metabolism by switching from processed foods to whole foods. However, you may benefit from getting a more powerful reboot known as a cleanse. There are so many cleanses out there today, it may be hard to choose which one is best for you. However, you don’t have to go on a crazy cleanse to start seeing benefits. A simple juice cleanse is a great idea, especially for your first one and it’ll show powerful results rapidly. So, when you’re ready to get started, use these three simple steps to start your first juice cleanse!
1. Plan out your cleanse
While a lot of people have tried a cleanse before, they often don’t stick with it because of poor planning. The first thing that you need to plan is the length of time. A one-day cleanse may be best if you’ve never done a juice cleanse before. However, if you’ve done other types of cleanses and are confident in your abilities to go longer, try a cleanse that lasts a few days. You should also plan out how your juicing is going to work. Are you going to juice your own fruits or purchase juices? There are certainly pros and cons to both, but you’ll want to plan out whichever option is best for you. If you have a juicer and are familiar with juicing, then you’re probably better off making your own. However, not everyone has the time or the equipment to manage juicing. Think about what you’ll need to juice and then decide if you’ll be better off buying your fruit juices for the cleanse.
2. Ensure a variety of flavors, colors, and ingredients
Going on a cleanse has a significant number of benefits, but it’s going to be hard to stick with if you drink the same juice every day. To keep enjoying your juicing and sustaining interest in the cleanse, make sure that you’re getting a range of flavors and colors every day. You should also be sure that your juices contain only real ingredients. If you try to use processed juices or juices with added sugars, then you’re actually going to do your health more harm than good. Maximize your nutrition and get the most from your cleanse by sticking to only the best fruits. You’ll notice a significant difference in your results. You’ll also want to make sure that you’re getting your favorite flavors in the fruit juices. Choose fruits that you naturally enjoy and use them as much as possible. You won’t feel deprived when you’re enjoying juices that are some of your favorites. This is also a great time to introduce fruit blends. Many fruits contain complementary nutrients so mixing juices together is a good way to get the most benefits from each juice.
3. Use a buddy system
The first cleanse is always the hardest since your metabolism is getting a serious reboot. If you’re trying to get back on track but struggling with the results, then you’ll want to have a support system in place. Ask a friend if they’ll be willing to go on the cleanse with you. After finding a friend, pick a time that’s going to be relatively stress-free to start the cleanse. For your initial cleanse, you’ll want to choose a time that’s not going to offer the temptation to binge on unhealthy food choices, so you may even want to do your cleanse on a weekend when you have fewer daily pressures. No matter what time you choose to do the cleanse, having a friend to stay accountable with is a great way to stay motivated and stick to your goals.
Once you go on your juice cleanse, pay attention to the differences you start to see. Many people notice that their skin is clearer, they have more energy, and they feel better throughout the day. It may be a little challenging to start a juice cleanse, but pay attention to how the cleanse affects your mindset and your body. This is a great habit to get into whenever you need a pick-me-up so you may want to consider juice cleanses a regular part of your routine. Many people have benefitted from juice cleanses, so use these three simple steps to get started on your own.
