How To Survive A Juice Detox Cleanse

CRFT Juice is a new premium juicery that caters to health and fitness minded folks in El Paso. They’ve teamed up with Phit Phuel, a fitness meal prep company, to offer perfectly paired juices to compliment Phit Phuel’s array of delectable offerings.

In my last post, I discussed the fact that I need to lose a significant amount of weight. Since then, I started a new Instagram account, solely to document my journey through becoming… less fat. So far, the journey has been a bit frustrating but I feel as if I am reaching a point where the workouts, diet and mentality are becoming a habit- and that’s a good thing.  CRFT Juice ran into my Instagram account and offered me a 1 day cleanse to try out.

The last time I did a ‘detox’ was about five years ago. Even then, it was a simple lemonade diet, which yielded great results but didn’t necessarily detoxify my body. Juice cleanses can be done by anyone with a strong will and desire for a healthier system. CRFT Juice offers 3 day and 7 day juice cleanses us as well, but everyone should really start out with a one day cleanse just so that they know how their body reacts to it.

{What Is Juicing?}

Juicing has been trendy for a few years and there are a few ways to get your nutrients packed into a cold, tall glass of deliciousness. Typical juicers keep the pulp out of your drink and keep it ‘juicy’ on the literal sense. Slow juicers keep the pulp and the nutrients.

According to CRFT Juice: “With proper refrigeration, your juice has a shelf life of 3-4 days (72-96 hours). Additionally, freezing your juice extends your window for enjoyment. If you choose to freeze your juice, please let it defrost. COMPLETELY before consuming to avoid a “watered down” taste- as water thaws quicker than vitamins.

{Who Is CRFT Juice?}

CRFT Juice’s owner, Adrian, is very socially active on social media and is great at customer service! I had a lot of questions about the cleanse when I started the process and thankfully, he was very patient and gave me very direct advice: he told me that I should drink at least five juices in combination with a gallon of lemon water in one day, and also told me that if I absolutely needed to eat something, organic fruits and soaked almonds are somewhat allowed.

Strive to do the whole cleanse as prescribed!

{How To Do The 1 Day Juice Detox}

1 day juice detox
Before you start the cleanse, buy plenty of lemons for your lemon water. This way, when cravings arise you can reach for that gallon of water instead of that refrigerator handle. The one day juice cleanse comes with two Waters, a Fire, Wind, and Earth juice. Here’s the breakdown:8:28 AM – Drinking a CRFT Juice Earth. First thing I taste is celery. It’s a smooth draught with a little bit of weightiness to it. I’m glad it’s not too watery – I suppose I expect ‘juice’ to have a certain thickness to it. This juice contains celery, cucumber, kale and spinach. Lean green!11:25 AM – I’ve had about 3 glasses of lemon water so far. I feel a little hungry, but comfortably so. Now opening up a bottle of CRFT Juice Water, a blend of coconut, aloe and pineapple. It has a welcome sweetness to it and a good, weighty feel to it – I can taste all three flavors all at once. It’s like a punch of freshness.

3:44 PM – I’ve been in and out of meetings and felt REALLY hungry at this point. Grabbed a CRFT Juice Wind and was my ‘hangriness’ was quickly satiated. This juice is lighter than the last two and the tartness is a nice change. The Wind juice is made up of Strawberries, Blueberries, Raspberries, Lemon, Lavender. I am also about halfway down my water gallon at this point.

5:56 PM – Time for a CRFT Juice Fire. Despite the name, this juice is orange in color and packs a punch! Fire has a strong vegetable taste and is made up of oranges, grapefruit, pineapple, nopal (cactus), celery, and ginger. What I really love about this juice is that it makes my stomach feel full so that I don’t have to suffer the rest of the night! My water gallon is almost finished, too!

8:57 PM – It’s time to go to bed. I’m a little sleepier than normal but I suppose I should expect that if I cut calories by drinking juice and water all day. I reached for my CRFT Juice Water and happily gulped it down. I absolutely LOVE this drink – I’d have to say it’s definitely my favorite of all the drinks I’ve had today. Time for mimis…zzzzzzzzzz!

{The Results}
I woke up the next morning hungry (ravenous, almost) but with loads of pep in my step. Even my vision seemed to have more clarity! Overall, I didn’t feel as groggy as usual and it just felt like my body was running a little better than usual. I’ll need to try the three day cleanse soon!
