What should I do before I start a cleanse?
It is very important to prepare the mind before the body. In addition some changes to help the transition from solid foods to juicing can help the process be easier and more enjoyable. Proper preparation is as important as doing the cleanse itself.
Clear your calendar. Choose a week where extra work and social engagements will not distract and possibly tempt you, during your cleanse. Dedicate a week to prepare and a week for your cleanse, as a gift to yourself to nourish and heal.
Cut out acid forming foods. This means cutting out or significantly reducing:
- Refined Sugar
- Animal Products
- Processed Foods
Hydrate!! Become more mindful to hydrate yourself at a cellular level. Which means by eating water rich fruits and vegetables, starting your day with lemon water and drinking at least 2 liters or half a gallon on purified water a day. It is a good practice to also eat only fruits before noon.
Dedicate and make an intention. A clear intention and positive mindset to begin reaffirming your commitment, take the challenges and make your goal a reality.
