To Juice or Not to Juice



Lately I have been spending a lot of time at the gym, trying to eat lots of small, healthy meals throughout the day and drinking lots of water. Mind you, all this has seemed to be for nothing at this point because the scale is staying at a stand still! As frustrating as that is, I try to remind myself not to get too hung up on the number and instead just concentrate on how I’m feeling and if things are headed back north vs. south where they plummeted during pregnancy. In preparation for our family beach trip that is in a week and a half I am contemplating a juice cleanse. I’m fairly suspicious with anything other than a healthy diet and exercise, but I’ve heard good things. Have you ever tried a juice cleanse? How’d it make you feel?

    If you are going to do a cleanse, I would highly suggest buying your own veggies and blending them yourself.

    I have done 6-7 juice cleanses before. Each cleanse lasted about 5 days (no more) and I made sure to eat a ton of protein following the cleanse. Done correctly you can lose a ton of fat and use the slingshot effect to add lean muscle.

    The mistake most people make while juicing is starving themselves for too long, which disrupts all of the hormonal signaling in the body. If you keep it under 5 days, you should probably be OK.
