Level 1 Cleanse - Manual
Beginner Juice Cleanse
Welcome! When it comes to our cleanses, you get out what we don’t put in. They’re designed to replace meals with bottles of pure and nutritious cold-pressed juices – with nothing unnatural added. They’re a reminder of how you feel when you put only good things in.
Your Cleanse Line Up
Storing your cleanse.
Pop your juices in the fridge. They like to be kept below 5˚C to stay fresh.
Whilst a cleanse is all about avoiding solid food, we recognise that this can be difficult – particularly if you’ve never done one before. If you’re finding it tough, listen to your body. First, try having a hot water with lemon or herbal tea, as this is often enough to stave off the desire for solid food until your next juice. If that doesn’t work, here’s a few tricks that should help:
Drink 1/2 of your number 6 bottle and save the rest for the evening
Have a few slices cucumber, celery or avocado
Have a Miso soup
Have a cup of leafy greens with a squeeze of lemon juice
How it feels to cleanse
It’s hard to predict how you’ll feel whilst you’re cleansing because no two people are the same, but here are a few of the common side effects.
It’s surprising how much heat everyday digestion of solid food creates. Without having this work to do, your body can feel colder than normal. Drinking herbal teas throughout the day will warm you up and keep you hydrated.
If you are a committed coffee drinker, going cold turkey without caffeine can bring on headaches. Stick it out for 24 hours or have a cup of green tea (the lower levels of caffeine in green tea will help). Drink plenty of water whilst you wait for it to pass.
When you’ve put only good stuff in, your body thanks you for it by feeling brighter and more energised. It’s common our cleansers want to keep this feeling going. Our 5:2 plans take the faff out of fasting, with simply delicious programmes for those who want to continue their cleanse benefits.
After your cleanse
You may be surprised that your cravings have changed and you want to focus on getting more good stuff into your diet. Now is a great time to start some healthy habits.
Remember how your cleanse has made you feel and try to keep that going with real whole foods, staying away from anything processed and limiting stimulants like alcohol and caffeine.
Introduce Solids Slowly
Wake up your digestive system slowly. A light breakfast like overnight oats will ease you back in much better than a full English breakfast.
