Last Friday I had the brilliant idea to do a cleanse. A 3-day one at that. Considering that I’d never done a cleanse or even tried healthy green juices, this would be interesting. However, I’m known to be quite the adventurous, spontaneous, and very impulsive person. So I cleared my schedule, warned my husband, and proceeded to pick up my juices.
I chose the Liquiteria method because it was the cheapest and it had the best reviews. The plan was 6 juices a day for three days. This was my commentary from day 1. As a side note, it’s ok to laugh.
All Greens: This being my first healthy juice drink, and a green one at that, I am not impressed. In fact, it’s rather disgusting. It smells good and I know it’s going to do great things for my body. I hold my nose while drinking.
All Greens With Apple: This is much, much better. It’s a lot sweeter than I thought it would be, which is a major plus. It kind of masks all of the funky tastes of the veggies.
Greens With Carrots: Well, it’s back to awful. Considering that I’m not the biggest fan of carrots, this is definitely difficult. I have to make a face to make sure it goes down. I’m thinking this might be the worst of the bunch.
Beets Me: And this one made me throw up. Literally.
So, I didn’t even finish day one or get to try the Royal Flush. Considering that a juice made me get physically ill was a good indication that this was not working for me. Also, towards the late afternoon (juice three), my body began shaking. It started with my fingers and really frightened me. I think it was my body’s way of saying, “no more!” I tried, I wasted some money, and I learned. After this, I’ll take hours at the gym over those juices any day.
Have you ever done a cleanse?
