Diary: Glow Juicery One Day Beginner Cleanse

I thought I would be all about salads and fresh fruit this Summer. But then road trips happened. And restaurants. And birthdays. And fried food. So when I got the opportunity to try Glow Juicery's one day cleanse for beginners, I decided to give it a try. I had been hearing about juice cleanses for a while and always thought they were a trend. Turns out, juicing is here to stay.

My biggest fear with this cleanse was that I would be too hungry and wouldn't be able to go through with it. In the end, it went much smoother than I thought and, not only did I survive my first juice cleanse, I also actually enjoyed it!

All in all, I loved my experience. At first I was surprised that the juices were so watery, I was expecting a thicker consistency - but that is probably due to the fact that I mostly drink smoothies at home, not actual raw juices. I did not care for some of the juices, and while I am a cucumber lover, I thought it was a little too overpowering in a lot of the juices. I was surprised at how satisfied I felt after each juice, and I felt great the next day. No urge for junk food or even coffee. 

A couple tips: 

  • Make sure you really follow the instructions provided, from the pre-cleanse to the salad for lunch and schedule. I thought I'd be overzealous and could skip the salad, but by 11am I could feel a nasty headache coming on that went away the minute I ate my salad. 
  • Plan your day around it. Make sure you plan ahead and choose a day with little to no outings (you don't want to be lugging 6 bottles of juice in the subway), and possibly not the day your husband had planned to cook salsa verde and grilled chicken tacos for dinner because it will be impossible to resist that.
  • Don't beat yourself up if you end up eating a little. I felt guilty that I had a couple bites of my son's dinner, but in the end, it's not about starving yourself, or feeling guilty. It is important to try to stick to the program as much as possible, but don't make yourself sick!
