So you’re thinking about going on a cleanse…
Cleansing has become such a buzzword lately. I’ve always wondered if I could do it and forego solid food for more than a day. Last week I talked a bit about my body battles so this time I’ll be talking about my food battles. I’m a sweet-tooth-a-holic. During most meals I’m already thinking about what’s for dessert. I love chocolate, I love cookies, I love doughnuts. What I have never loved is nature’s version of dessert — fruit.
After a very delicious Christmas and a boozy New Year it was time for me to get my body back on track. I reached out to Organic Squeeze in Nichols Hills Plaza and said sign me up! If you follow me on twitter you know how nervous I was about doing this. Especially going off caffeine..
…this girl loves her coffee.
The day before I started my 2 day cleanse I had to pick up all my neatly arranged bottles. The flavors sounded pretty good and I was already a fan of their smoothies so I knew that taste wouldn’t be an issue. I just figured I would be starving all day. Surprisingly this was not the case. I was shocked at how full I felt all day long! They were so filling that I sometimes struggled to finish every drop. It was equally surprising that I wasn’t tired and was even strangely focused. The only downfall was an awful headache that cropped up around 5 pm on the first day of the cleanse. I felt a bit dizzy and my head was throbbing. This was the dreaded caffeine withdrawal headache I’d heard about and it was no joke. The next morning when I felt it creeping up again I drank a 1/2 cup of coffee and was immediately back to normal. I guess I’m addicted to coffee.
Cleanses make all kinds of claims from detoxifying the body to reseting your digestive system. While I can’t say that it did any of those, I can tell you the positive effect it had on me. It reminded me to be more conscious of what I put into my body. Afterwards I honestly missed the juice! My favorite flavors were formula #3 which I can best describe as a delicious salad with a hint of bell pepper and formula #6 which was like a creamy milkshake.
After going into this being extremely skeptical, and a bit nervous, I can say 100% that I would do it again. I might even look forward to it. If you’re looking for a way to get healthy after the holidays I completely recommend an OrganicTrim cleanse from Organic Squeeze. I did it for 2 days but next time I would definitely opt for 3.
Have you gone on a cleanse before? I would love to hear your experience!
