1-2-3 Detox

How does it work?

How does it work?

  • You pick up six bottles (500ml) of juice for each day of the cleanse (between 8am and 11am, depending on what time you prefer to start your day)
  • The drinks replace breakfast, lunch and dinner.
  • The bottles are numbered 1-6 to make this nice and easy. Drink juice #1 when you wake up in the morning (after a cup of hot water and lemon).
  • We advise to drink a juice every 2 to 3 hours. You can also have some herbal tea and green tea, if you wish.
  • Have juice #6 at least two hours before bed time and try to get to bed early.

 

The idea is to flush those toxins out!

Before & After The Cleanse

Here are some tips for getting the most out of your juice cleanse:
  • Ease into it with a pre-cleanse diet
  • Take nourishing spa detox salt baths
  • Exercise (low impact) to release more toxins through perspiration
  • Exfoliate by dry brushing your skin before exercise or showering
  • Help everything move along with a massage
  • After the cleanse slowly add solid foods by following a post cleanse diet

Drink up!

  • Make sure you drink LOTS of water throughout the day. At least 2 liters should help you stay ‘regular’.
  • You want to try and keep your digestive system moving, so if you’re having a little trouble, it’s a good idea to either take a probiotic supplement, or have a tablespoon of castor oil before bed.

Days 1 to 5 after the cleanse.

Be gentle on your system. Here are some suggestions on what to eat on days 1-5 after your juice cleanse:

Keep it raw.

  • Eat raw fruits, raw (or lightly steamed) vegetables (mostly greens), and seeds.

Take it slow.

  • Stick to fresh squeezed juice, cucumber, celery, avocado or vegetable broth.
  • Continue to hydrate with water and herbal teas.

Light starch, please.

  • Now you can add salads (more raw than cooked) and small portions of brown rice or starchy vegetables like sweet potatoes.

Reintroduce lean meats and fish.

  • Start with very small portions of animal protein and a salad with seeds.

Now you can eat anything and everything you want in moderation.

  • Be careful with the quantities as your eating habits have changed and your stomach size has shrunk, don’t overload it.
