When I started hearing about juice bars and cleanses popping up all over the place I was so tempted by the accessibility and popularity of this rumoured miracle cleanse and had to find out more. I decided to try out a one day cleanse to ease my way into it and get a taste of what this craze was all about.
Wearing Running Bare
- I have never felt so hydrated! When I wasn’t drinking one of my juices, I was drinking lots of water in order to keep my mind off of food. My skin was absolutely glowing by the end of the day!
- Cleansing gives your body a much neediest rest from digestion. Our bodies are used to breaking down and digesting food all day, every day, for years and years so once in a while it is nice to give your body a break by only consuming nutrient-rich fluids.
- After I completed the cleanse my sugar cravings are completely gone! It’s been over a week since I completed the cleanse and the only time I’ve had sugar cravings is when pictures of cronuts come up on my instagram feed… Needless to say I’ve had to unfollow those accounts! What’s more is when I have had anything unhealthy, I’ve immediately feel the negative side effects so have been completely turned off of junk food.
Sugar. Bottled juice cleanses usually have a ton of sugar in them – even though fresh fruit juice is natural, it will still send your energy levels on an insulin rollercoaster. This meant I crashed in the late afternoon, luckily the master minds at Pure Glow Cleanse predicted this and had a protein drink Chai Vanilla Dream, which helped to regulate my blood sugar and made me feel much fuller for longer.
- Cleansing is not a solution for long-term weight loss. If you are looking to shed a few pounds permanently, then a juice cleanse is not the answer – but I think it’s great as something to kick start your health journey in the right direction!
To get the most out of your cleanse, preparation is essential! You should start weaning yourself off of your usual indulgences and make a few adjustments towards a clean diet few days before you start.
One of the criticisms about juice cleanses is the lack of fibre – so to make sure you get your daily dose either stock up on supplements of mix in some chia seeds!
Why Pure Glow Cleanse?
Because they don’t compromise on quality. Ever.
They use the best cold-press juicing equipment in the world and developed their recipes to ensure that they pack a huge nutritional punch and taste amazing. – They also address the big sugar con of juice cleanses by coming up clever combinations and genius methods of minimising fruit so you can avoid that all-too-common sugar high. This includes exclusively using Granny Smith apples as they are the lowest sugar apple, and using lots of citrus fruit (lemons, limes, grapefruits) as these are very low in sugar and SO good for you! – My favourite thing about the Pure Glow Cleanse team were the motivating emails I received throughout the day with tips and guidance. They delivered the juices straight to my door with a lovely smile – I’ve honestly never experienced better customer service! If you live in Perth I’d definitely recommend trying either a one or three day cleanse so you can see for yourself what all the fuss is about.
