If you follow me on Instagram, you would’ve seen that last week I was appointed the title of a #BRawAgent and participated in a 5 day juice cleanse. This wasn’t my first juice cleanse but it was my longest by an additional two days. Having worked with the brand in the past ‘The Circle’ – luncheon and ‘Sweat With Christian’, I knew that I was in good hands. Everyday, I was delivered a fresh batch of organic cold pressed juice between the hours of 5am and 8am with a schedule and guidelines on when to consume them. I followed the schedule and consumed a lot of water in between juices and went on with my day. The only real adjustment that I made was to my workout regimen. I brought down the intensity of my workouts to accommodate the amount of calories that I was consuming.
The main benefit of being on a juice cleanse is to give your digestive system a break from it’s everyday heavy duties of breaking down solid foods. In addition to giving your digestive system a break a lot of people lose weight, release toxins and gain glowing skin from being on a cleanse. I didn’t lose much weight but my skin does look and feel better. One thing I do really like about being on a cleanse is that because you follow a schedule, once completing it, you tend to continue out of habit. The last few days post cleanse, I’ve been eating earlier, more regularly and consuming more water.
If you’re in the market for a juice cleanse I would recommend trying out Belmonte Raw. If you’re a beginner, I think three days is sufficient as I found the 4th day really difficult but because I’m super stubborn I continued until the end. If you don’t think a cleanse is right for you, try incorporating juices into your diet. The nutrients that you can get from one juice is the equivalent to sometimes eating pounds of fruits and vegetables, which most of us never do.
