Pre and Post-Cleanse

Pre and Post-Cleanse

You’ll see tremendous benefits from doing our juice cleanse, but for maximum benefit, you’ll want to be sure you’re eating a pure, clean, simple diet for at least 2 days before and 2 days after the cleanse.  If this is not possible (or not desirable), try to follow at least some of the below tips one day prior to your cleanse and one day following completion.

We recommend greatly reducing or eliminating the following:

 

After reading that list, you may be wondering, “What CAN I eat?”  The answer is simple:  Think pure, natural and simple and you can’t go wrong.

Here is an ideal diet to follow if you choose to prepare your body before your cleanse and/or to gently re-introduce solid foods after your cleanse:

Chew your Food

Regardless of what you choose to eat, it is critical that you always chew your food thoroughly.  Not only does the act of chewing help to break down food, digestive enzymes in saliva assist in breaking down sugars as well.  Proper chewing greatly assists with the remainder of the digestive process and its importance cannot be overstated.  In fact, some people find that digestive disorders such as heartburn, bloat and excess gas are significantly reduced or eliminated by practicing proper chewing.  If you’re unsure of how many chews are appropriate, a good rule of thumb to remember is roughly 40-60 chews before swallowing.  This is a great habit to get into since you’ll be “chewing” your juices when cleansing.
