48 Hours of Juice


I am officially halfway through my first juice cleanse that is longer than 24 hours.  We've upgraded this time to 48 hours.  I had a bit of a rough patch yesterday afternoon where I swear my stomach was saying pizza out loud, but I bounced back and finished strong.  They are wise to end the day with the best tasting thing that has ever entered my body... although when you haven't eaten real food all day, anything could taste amazing.

Remember back in the beginning of the year when we bought a juicer?  I shared these tips & thoughts on juicing.  Now we have a juice shop open directly below our apartment... so the juicer sits in the back of a cabinet.  We decided to try their cleanse this time around because it's way less work and the juices are just as fresh.  I think it worked out to be a little more expensive than doing it at home, but we got a good deal on the second day, plus we got that lime green cooler.  It's the details people.

Turns out, I will NEVER like beets.  I've tried and tried, but they are disgusting.  I feel the same way about the juice I start with in the morning which is all green vegetables, zero fruit.  It's like eating a salad with no dressing or nuts or croutons or decorations.  Gross.  The rest of the juices are really good - especially the last one.  It tastes like you're drinking cookie dough.

I've seen the articles saying that juice cleanses are healthy, I've seen articles that say they are horrible.  I will tell you from personal experience that my body is always happy afterwards.  For me, the changing of the seasons is the best time to detox a little - also, after a weekend of eating and drink the best unhealthy stuff NYC has to offer.

Have you ever done a juice cleanse?  Hate it?  Love it?  Tell me about it.

  3. I'm one of those people who must chew to be in any way satisfied, so I haven't. The lime green cooler could sway me...

  4. I've never done any kind of clense, but I get a little stabby if I don't eat lunch until late, so I don't know if the people around me would have the willpower to sit through it! drinking cookie dough could sway me a little though...

  5. I've never done one and don't think I have the willpower to. When I'm hungry for more than five minutes I am HANGRY. Good for you for getting through 48 hours!

  7. I've never tried juicing because I'm not sure I'd like it, but I LOVE beets, so I wonder if maybe I would like beets in juiced form? So is the juice literally all you can have for 48 hours?

  8. Finally started juicing with beets and I personally love it but def not for everyone. I would purchase his cleanse simply for the lime green cooler. WANT!!

  9. I've never done it. I don't hate the idea but I just don't think I could ever have the willpower to follow through with it. If my stomach says pizza... I usually listen to it. :P lol
