Halfway through a week-long juice cleanse, a friend of mine remarked to me, “Well, I feel so terrible, I must be doing something right!”
I’ll let you in on a secret: if you’re doing a cleanse right, it should be misery-free. Terrible cravings, stomach upset, and fatigue are signs that you’re hurting yourself, not ridding your body of toxins!
Why Most Cleanses Spell Trouble
The problem lies in the fact that most cleanses include green drinks that are primarily fruit juice. Sadly, by using only the juice, they eliminate the fiber and protein your body needs to detox.
What’s more, the resulting blood sugar roller coaster can crash your energy and mood, plus set you up for inflammation and weight gain. I don’t know about you, but that’s not what I’m looking for in a cleanse!
Time for a change…
Detox Done Right
Instead of green drinks that taste awful and spike your blood sugar, try this Strawberry Detox Smoothie for breakfast. It’s made with Green Smoothie Cleanse powder, which includes the protein you need to detox and 14 whole fruits and veggies, including 7 types of greens.
If you’d like to try a 7-day cleanse, simply have one more detox smoothie as a meal replacement and one sensible, nutritious meal each day for a week. (You can have your second green smoothie for lunch or dinner – whichever is most convenient for you.)
Whether you enjoy this smoothie as an ongoing way to detox your system or as part of a cleanse to jumpstart weight loss or increased energy, you’re going to love the taste and the results!
