We both recently tried the JUS by Julie 3 day juice cleanse and became obsessed! Though our results varied, our experience was similar and we wanted to share it with all of you. Something we both had in common was that we felt like our bodies “reset” and got back on track. We both saw some weight loss and felt much leaner and detoxified! Below are the results from Sass and Sweetness – we hope this helps if you are considering doing a cleanse!
Sweetness: I’m so happy that I was able to do this juice cleanse – I felt like I really needed it and it was the perfect start to summer! For the most part I enjoyed every juice, however did have some effects from the sugar. The juices have no added sugar, however fruit does obviously contain natural sugar, which is just something my body wasn’t entirely used to. Day 1 started out great, I really enjoyed the first juice, which is the same each day. My biggest struggle were the juices that were a little on the sweeter side but boy did I love allllll of the green juices. Weird I know but the more “green” the juice, the more I enjoyed it. Day 2 was definitely the hardest day for me. I had a headache and felt the need to eat food even though I stayed strong…. okay I might of had 1 pretzel but shhhh! By day 3 I felt like a pro juicer – it could have been my new full time job. I usually do intermittent fasting on the regular s I’ll admit that I’m happy to have food back in my life, but I’m looking forward to doing this cleanse again the next time I need a refresh!
Sass: Overall I had a positive experience doing the juice cleanse! If you watched our stories you know that the first day I struggled a bit because my juices were not thawed properly and I didn’t realize how much that affected the taste of the juices until day 2. That being said, on day 2, I really enjoyed the taste of the juices much better but I physically struggled the most. I felt fatigued, hungry and a little queasy from the sugar. I also had a little trouble falling asleep from the sugar rush. I won’t dive too deep into that since Sweetness already explained the sugar situation! Otherwise, by day 3 I was feeling lighter and less fatigued and motivated to get my Breville juicer back out! I used to be an avid juicer and after this cleanse I remembered how much my body enjoys the the break from food. I like to incorporate juicing with food, for example, I used to have juice for breakfast every day, sometimes at lunch, but then I’d always have a balanced dinner. I think that is a realistic way of incorporating the health benefits of juicing without feeling the deprivation that you feel when you are doing a cleanse. The cleanse, however, is an excellent jump start and I would definitely do another 3 day!
