I've heard of this cleanse as early as last year. Read about it in magazines. And even on twitter. I checked out its website but I didn't try it only because I felt that the price was prohibitive (read: pricey).
Intrigue and necessity snapped me out of my hesitation. The former brought out the curious in me as so many people have claimed improved well-being. Necessity, on the other hand, is what really prodded me. If I can't be thin on my wedding day. At least I'd want to be really glowing. Nice skin and all.
So, what is Juju Cleanse? The long and short of it -- juice fast. "Each of our Juju Cleanse kits contain a day’s worth of detoxifying drinks which keep you nourished while you put aside your spoon and fork for the day and give your digestive system that much needed break, " quoted from its website.
"In a nutshell, the Juju Cleanse program is designed to give your body a break, so that it can focus on digesting nutrients and flushing out the junk. It also promotes alkalinity in the body to reduce the foothold of the nasties." - from the Juju Cleanse webpage.To know more, click here.
For starters, we got a barkada package -- Zarah, Febz and I are all in this together. This means 3 people on the same address would want to try the one-day cleanse program. We're excited and at the same time apprehensive. What if we can't last a day with only liquid in our body?
Today is our pre-cleanse day. Guideline says, we have to limit our intake of: proteins, carbonated and caffeinated drinks. What? Coffee means life to my blood stream. Lol.
I hope I last the day without a drop of it.
At least one day before beginning your cleanse, we suggest you reduce your intake of the following to prepare your body:
- Animal protein and processed foods
- Salt, refined sugar and carbs
- Carbonated sodas, and other caffeinated drinks
- Alcohol and nicotine
- Water or herbal teas
- Fruit and vegetables
Tomorrow, I hope to wake up with all the determination and will-power I can muster. What is one-whole day of cleansing and detoxification when you think about the amount of rubbish we put into our mouths and into our digestive system. I believe that my internal sewerage system is beginning to clog up. Indeed, it's about time to deliberately remove all the toxins in my body.
|Hello, Juju Cleanse. Goodbye, toxins!|
The idea has now become real. We just received our kits. Nice eh? It's a thermal bag; the juices need to be refrigerated so while in transit all the juice bottles have to be in this bag with gel ice to maintain it's freshness.
