This past week I decided to do a three-day juice cleanse…
You may be secretly thinking I’m crazy, which is a-okay, you can totally say it! During the first day & the second day & the third day (the whole damn time), I was wondering why the hell I was doing this to myself too..
Why did I do a juice cleanse:
I figured since summer has been pretty busy with work & concerts & drinking & going out for food that I should get rid of all the toxins in my body post-labour day & get a fresh start for the fall! I’ve been feeling sluggish & all my working out/eating healthy isn’t showing any progress thanks to the amount of alcohol I have been consuming, along with all the snacking that comes along with drinking.
So after doing all my research I figured why not give it a shot, reboot my system….
Post juice cleanse:
So today is my first day eating in 4 days & you can say I don’t feel that much different.. I mean any bloating went down but my goodness I have never felt so weak. This just goes to say that I do not recommend doing a juice cleanse of any type, just stick to eating healthy & having a routine, don’t live off of juices for a ling period of time. I could not stop thinking about pizza or grilled cheese or popcorn or anything made out of carbs to be quite honest. Living without popcorn is not worth. Oh & the best part of this is I’m heading up to a conference tonight & it’s all you can drink & I packed some unhealthy drunk snacks so I think that defeats the purpose of this whole cleanse.
Moral of the story… Don’t do one ever

Cass! You are hilarious! Juice cleanses sound scary and sad. I don’t have the guts to even try it. I applaud you for doing it….and even more for telling us the truth.
One time I read a story from a guy in GQ who went on a water only diet for 4 days or a week or something. I forget exactly because I read it years ago, but he lost 12 pounds or something. He said it was hellish. It was like being in prison. He actually did this diet while checked into a facility just in case he had an emergency. Anyway, the point is, it’s not worth it! Mentally, it can be healthy and you learn about yourself. It’s a character building exercise. However, physically it is awful.
Thanks for writing about it!
