Summer is coming pretty soon but my body is definitely not ready for it at all. For that reason, I detoxed it with a juice cleanse for the last 3 days. I decided to prepare all the juices by myself, simply because I’m a little bit picky what contains vegetables and fruit. I had 5 juices (0,5 l) during the day and about 0,3 l of almond milk for “dinner/night snack”.
I didn’t snack at all and I just had green tea or water. Regarding sports, I didn’t go to the gym on these 3 days but I went for walks (about 1 hour).
Astonishingly the first day wasn’t hard at all, I never had the feeling to be hungry because I was pretty busy on that day. Since the first day went very well I was pretty excited for the second day – well, unfortunately it wasn’t that easy than the first day, as I had a slight headache and I felt a little bit weak in general, but I managed to get through it. I was a little bit worried for the last day to feel like the day before again but that wasn’t the case. I didn’t feel hungry, weak or had a headache at all – I actually felt really good. I assume that I just had a bad day in general on the second day.
Today is my first day of eating “normal (BUT healthy)” again. I am pretty excited!! I don’t know if I lost some weight and I don’t really care because I just used this juice cleanse for detoxing and a fresh start for a healthy diet. I hope that it’ll help me to finally eat healthy again, and I can loose weight in the following weeks for the perfect summer body.
Interested in detoxing your body? Look what I had for 1 day.
Make sure that you use organic veggies and fruit (you don’t want to put more toxin into your body while you’re detoxing!!). Drink them in 2-3 hour increments.
Lemon water (perfect for mornings):
Boil 0,5 l of water and put 1 peeled lemon in it. Cook it for 5-7 minutes. You can add ginger if you want.
Apples, carrots & ginger:
Put about 3 apples, 5 carrots (less if they’re big) and some ginger into the juicer. Add some water. You can add lemon and strawberries if you like.
The green one:
Juice 1 green apple with kiwi, some baby spinach and kale, 1 cucumber and celery. Add water and cayenne (to season it).
Watermelon water (good as a afternoon snack):
In my opinion you don’t need a juicer for this because a watermelon consists a lot of water on its own. Chop your watermelon into small pieces and blend it in a blender. Add some water or ice cubes.
Put 1 Beet (peeled), 3 carrots, some kale leaves, 3 red apples, 1/2 lemon and some ginger into the juicer. Add water and et voilà you’re in beetroot heaven!
Well, I have to admit that I didn’t prepare this by myself, I actually bought it (make sure that there’s no added sugar in it).
