Juicing and juice cleanses have now been around long enough to no longer be a “craze” or “fad”. There’s still lots of controversy out there about whether they are worth it or not but, like everything, it comes down to how you feel and whether you enjoy them and feel they work for you! As I’m already a healthy person, I never felt the need to do a juice cleanse but since studying a little bit more about nutrition on my Holistic Health Coach course, I now consider any burst of nutrients, minerals and phytonutrients into the body to detox, cleanse and alkalise a good thing! This is due to the fact our digestive systems have to work so hard to process the acidic food and drink we eat such as meat, dairy, alcohol and processed foods and don’t get me wrong our digestive system is supposed to work for us but sometimes it needs a break.
alcohol in moderation, restaurant meals and puddings occasionally and since my holiday in September have felt quite bloated and just not myself health wise so when PRESS London, a cold pressed juice cleanse company, asked me to be involved in their Cleanse Project I thought it was just what I needed. I must admit that I can only do them for 1 or 2 days maximum. As a Pilates Instructor and active person I am always on the go and feel the fact the juice cleanses are usually very low calorie, I need a little more energy but after doing just 1 day I am normally feeling really fabulous, refreshed and back on track.
