Juice Cleanse -- Complete!
Admittedly by yesterday evening I was straight up so bored of sipping juice all day that I met up with Dre for a salad dinner, instead of gulping the last juices. But, I regret nothing and still feel great today!
Here's a little breakdown of my post-cleanse thoughts....
In the end, it's really a mental challenge. If you follow the cleanse, drink LOTS of water, rest well and be positive you will see great results. Here are some right-on-the-money thoughts from other Weebly juice cleansers:
"The greatest value in the juice diet, for me, is the perspective gained on the relationship we have with food. On a juice diet, one must confront the cravings and desires that arise in the absence of food and exercise the will power to forgo them and keep on juicin'. At times, the physical side effects like fatigue and headaches can be a bit overwhelming, but in the end, I feel a sense of accomplishment and renewal. I will most likely experiment with a juice diet again in the future, and I'll continue to incorporate juice into my normal diet." -Ben, super rad iOS Engineer (and fellow tree hugger)
"It made me realize that a lot of the time I say I'm hungry, is really me being bored or wanting an unhealthy snack. When most of the time, drinking a glass of water or tea made the nagging go away and allowed me to get back to the task at hand. I also realized that it's getting over a fear. A fear that your basic sustenance requirement will not be met. Of trusting in the process and that you will survive and achieve something you never thought you could..." - Jenn, VP of Finance and hot mama of 2 (also my dear friend!)
"I went into the cleanse not really knowing what to expect and thought it to be a great learning experience. What I found the most interesting was how tied my body is to the time of day and what it means relative to what and how much I eat. Food has always been an addiction on many levels for me so I’m very proud of myself for accomplishing the three days. In the end I came out with a stronger willpower and commitment to my health. So, would I do it again? Definitely :)" - Jessica, cutie patootie new-ish member of the Weebly family (and Jenn's right hand WOman!)
"I've always been curious about juice cleansing and also skeptical because eating is one of my favorite pleasures and because there are a lot of conflicting views on whether or not it's actually "good for you". I always say I'll try anything once! These were my thoughts & observations...
