Juice Fast Commonly Asked Questions

Juice-Day1-15

 

I am currently doing a Juice fast, I have done them before and I always get wonderful results. But if you are new to juice fasting and you are planning on joining me as I host a 3 Day Juice Fast Reboot Aug 4-6th then you may have some questions. This blog post is an attempt to answer those questions and help you prepare mentally before you undergo your reboot!

Q: Do I have to own a juicer?

A: No, if you have a high powered blender such as a Vita mix, blend Tech, Ninja, Magic Bullet or another then you will be good to go!

Q: How will I know what to buy and what to juice together for optimal nutrition?

A: I will be taking all of the guess work out of this experience for you, I will tell you exactly what to buy (via lists) and how much you will need to get you all the way through your 3 day juice “feast” I will also tell you what to juice together and what to avoid for certain health conditions (such as thyroid issues) to make sure you get the most optimal nutrition for your body.

Q: Is it hard to make the juice?

A: No, if you are capable of rinsing and chopping veggies and running them through a machine, then… you got this!

Q: How much weight will I lose?

A: It really depends on a lot of variables, such as how much weight you need to release, how toxic your system is, how closely you stick to the fast etc… But look at the weight loss as an added benefit and the improvements to your health, immune system and wellness as first priority.

Q: What if I get hungry or want to give up?

A: You might experience some hunger during your juice fast, if you get hungry, drink more juice 🙂 If you feel like you want to give up… Don’t! 3 days will pass quicker than you think! This is one reason I have created this to be a group experience complete with private Facebook group, this is where you go to get encouragement and support, even if you feel like throwing in the towel midway through, I encourage you to stick it out to get the full benefit!

Q:Will you help me know what to eat when the fast is over so I don’t “undue” all the good I’ve done on the fast?

A: Yes! As part of this 3 Day Juice fast I will be supplying you with a special sheet full of suggestions and ideas to help you ease back into the real world with real food after your 3 day fast is complete.

Q: How often should I juice fast?

A: This is really up to you, I see nothing wrong with juice fasting as often as one or two days per week, you may want to try to do a juice fast once per month or once every few months, there is no correct amount. Fasting with the aid of organic juice is a wonderful way to improve the bodies own healing mechanisms and correct imbalances. It is also a great way to release excess weight and detox and cleanse the system from the inside out. Using organic juice to cleanse the system is a great preventative medicine and can also be used as alternative medicine if sickness is already present. “Let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food” Hippocrates

Do You Spring Clean Your Home? How About Your Body?

springcleanse

 

I love to spring clean, my husband say’s I love to throw things away, and in all honesty it’s kind of true! Cleaning out closets, taking down the cob webs and giving away boxes of old toys to the good will. It feels so good to get rid of the old and make way for the new doesn’t it?

So… How about your body? Have you ever thought about giving it a good cleanse… and I mean on the inside? Just like our homes our bodies can easily become cluttered and “hold onto” more junk then they need! In today’s modern world we are bombarded with toxins, they are in the air we breath, the water we drink and bathe in, the chemicals we put on our skin in forms of make up and lotions etc.. And sadly we eat a toxic diet, loaded with sugar, hydrogenated fats, artificial chemicals and preservatives.

Doing a cleanse is a good way to “re-set” to give your over stimulated system a much needed rest, to let your digestive system “cool down” allow your liver and other main organs a chance to catch up and run more optimally, allowing them to “clean house” more efficiently.

I am a firm believer in the benefits of internally cleansing the body, I have done many cleanses of various types over the years and I have seen great results, I believe cleansing the body should be looked at as a normal part of life, not some weird woo-woo thing we tried that one time 🙂 but something we do as part of healthy maintenance, just like getting the oil changed in your car! Doing a cleanse (I recommend at the very least doing one at the change of each season) should be looked at as great preventative medicine!

This particular cleanse is all about eating real nourishing food! Food that tastes great and gives you optimal energy without weighing you down! Best of all, there is nothing special or weird to buy, most everything you will be consuming can be purchased at a regular grocery store. You will have access to great recipes that you can use again and again! And this cleanse is designed to balance and stabilize your blood sugar levels, helping to eliminate cravings for sweets, refined carbs and caffeine! More than any other concern I hear when I coach clients is “I am addicted to sugar” this cleanse will help kick that sugar addiction to the curb!

Now that Spring is here is a great time to do a cleanse, and that is why I am offering this spring cleanse at a very affordable rate, not only will you get the cleansers E-Book delivered right to your inbox which contains all the info you need (menus, recipes, grocery lists) to follow this cleanse, but also daily journaling exercises to help you set goals, stay the course and visualize your ideal self. You will also get daily affirmations OR daily bible verses (depending on which format you choose) to help encourage you on your way! During this 12 days you will also have access to health coaching from yours truly 🙂 a private facebook group for others going through this cleanse with you and all the guidance and support you need to make it from day #1 through day #12 successfully! All of this for only $49!

I love helping people get results and I am excited for you to make this commitment to yourself and see those results first hand, because if you don’t take care of you… who will?
