Okay, now that you’ve selected your cleanse here are our top 5 tips to making your cleanse a super positive experience:
Cut meat, dairy and processed foods out of your diet a week ahead
Going on a JUS cleanse can be somewhat of a shock to your system. Not only is it a break from your typical routine, but some people experience unpleasant detox symptoms like headaches, moodiness, and irritability. These symptoms tend to be worse if you don’t properly prepare your body ahead of time. We highly recommend cutting out meat, dairy, gluten, refined sugars and processed foods a week ahead of time to help your body ease into the cleanse. Just think of it as an added detox time!
The best time to do a JUS cleanse is over a long weekend when you’re able to relax at home and not overwork yourself. Take a look at your schedule and plan accordingly. Try not to throw yourself into a cleanse over the holidays or during a time when happy hours, weddings or other festivities are going to take place.
Be kind to yourself and listen to your body
The process of detoxing can be a bit of a challenge, and that’s okay! Yes, a little moodiness and mild headaches are normal but if you’re experiencing extreme fatigue or illness, listen to your body. If you do need a small break from the cleanse feel free to eat greens, egg whites, and avocado or one of our soups. It could be just what you need to perk back up.
Book a trip to the spa
Not only is a spa day a nice treat and very relaxing, but it also comes with some major detox benefits. Sitting in a sauna, relaxing in a hot tub or mineral pool, and experiencing a massage can all help further remove the toxins from your body that your cleanse is already working on.
Take it slow
We still recommend getting a little exercise in to combat any fatigue but you may want to reschedule your HIIT classes for another day. A little restorative yoga and small walks around the neighborhood are the best way to get the blood moving but be mindful of your body.
Overall, we hope you have an awesome experience and are here for you if you have any questions regarding your cleanse!
