I ate a lot of junk during the holidays – I gained about 4kg and I kept feeling “stuffy”, always in a messy mood – so I knew my body needed a quick reset.Over the weekend I went through a one day juice cleanse courtesy of nulijuice.com . In this type of cleanse what you basically do is replace all the meals and drinks from one whole day by fruit and vegetable based juices.
The main reason to start a juice cleanse is to give the digestive system a break from processing heavy proteins and fats, in addition to filtering the liver, kidneys and gall bladder. A juice cleanse should leave you energized, balanced and focused.
The Nuli REBOOT 1 day cleanse consists of 5 juices of 500ml each and 1 250ml juice which you’ll drink throughout the day with a minimum of 2 hours in between and the labels on the Caps tell you which order and time to take each . This package is best for those who havent juiced before – after this ,you can get the 3-day cleanse or the 5-day day cleanse
That Morning Kick (Lettuce, Cucumber, Celery, Apple, Lemon, Ginger) 178 calories per bottle
Spice Root (Carrot, Beetroot, Lemon, Apple, Ginger, Orange) 203 calories per bottle
The Simple Life (Carrot, Lemon, Ginger, Pineapple) 159 calories per bottle
Green Zest (Spinach, Pineapple, Cucumber, Lime, Ginger) 82 calories per bottle
Dr Nuli (Pineapple, Ginger, Cayenne Pepper, Apple Cider Vinegar) 165 calories per bottle
Bananarama (Banana, Almond Milk, Ginger) 136 calories per bottle
Before you start the juice cleanse you need to take some measures so it wont be so hard
- Drink more water
- Cut back on caffeine – I stopped taking oolong tea
- Eat and drink more fruits & veggies
- Eliminate processed foods
I felt really hungry around 3pm and I almost gave up ,I’m glad I started with this 1-day package because I would have definitely eaten if I tried the 3-day cleanse
My favorites were -Simple life and Bananarama ( I was looking forward to drinking these two for sure) .The Bananarama is more like a milkshake, sweet,creamy, filling so I didn’t think of food at all after taking it.
The day after the cleanse, I tried sticking to fruits and basic meals that wouldn’t put stress on my stomach.
What difference did it make to my body?
I didn’t loose any significant weight but I finally got rid of bloating (If you want to loose some weight try the 3/5-day cleanse) so that took some inches off my tummy and my body feels lighter.
