Curious About Juice Cleanses? Here is All You Need to Know!
Juice cleanses are very popular among celebrities before a big red carpet event to lose weight. It is also a great way to jump-start a diet or get back on track after being derailed! It's an easy way to get into a more healthier lifestyle and change habits that are effecting your progress to lose weight. I am a vegan so my diet is pretty healthy, for the most part, but I had gotten into a really bad carb crazed concentration and I started to gain weight. I knew it was bad when I went to try on my bridesmaid dress to a wedding I was going to be in a few weeks away and the dress completely didn't fit! Talk about a freak-out...I was hysterical trying to figure out any solution I could think of to make this one (expensive) dress work. Apart from spanx and tapping down my whole body I remembered getting a juice cleanse into the office. The next day I picked up the Kaeng Raeng cleanse.
They offer 3 or 6 day cleanses, they one I had was the 6 day cleanse which I feel like is the most bang for your buck! Plus the 6-Day program is ideal for those trying to lose weight!
When you consume additives, chemicals, toxins, and other processed foods, your digestive system cannot properly separate the healthy from the non healthy components of the food. Many times, these toxins remain in your system, sometimes building up over days, weeks, months, or years. Kaeng Raeng works to "flush" all of those toxins by using all natural fibers and water to help eliminate that colon build up.
In addition to these cleansing benefits, Kaeng Raeng is also a short-term raw diet. There is no fasting or starvation with Kaeng Raeng, but rather a return to a whole foods plant-based diet. To get the most benefit from Kaeng Raeng, drink each pouch with at least 24 oz of liquid in addition to raw foods (raw fruits and vegetables, with a small amount of raw, unsalted nuts).
By abstaining from a traditional diet of processed carbohydrates, oils, and animal products, your body will initially experience withdrawal as it releases built up toxins back into your system. In the first two days of Kaeng Raeng you may experience headache, nausea, constipation, and in some extreme cases of toxicity, a skin rash. This can be referred to as a healing crisis as the body must first get a little worse before it can heal. Kaeng Raeng is nutritional, containing a full serving of fruit and fiber, 15g of protein, 2 billion live probiotic cultures, and daily vitamins in each serving.
This cleanse is vegan and soy free so I was excited to get started! The box contained 3 packets per day (18 total) of the detox program, with 3 different flavors Into the Blue, Joyful & Daybreak. There are different ways you can approach this cleanse depending on what results you are seeking and what level of health you are at.
For the Health Novice:
Mix Kaeng Raeng into your favorite smoothie adding at least 24oz of water plus juice, non-dairy milk, and raw fruits and veggies.
For the Health Conscious:
Mix Kaeng Raeng with at least 24oz of water plus 2-8oz of juice.
For the Health Nut:
Mix Kaeng Raeng with just water.
I, of course, jumped right to the Health Nut level...but although the packets tasted good, I just needed more flavor. I moved to the Health Novice level because I wanted to make smoothies with fruit and it tasted SO good in a smoothie. You have to remember to drink the mixture (however yo make it) slowly to last. I was worried I would be hungry but the smoothies were filling and I rarely thought about food. You are able to have snacks such as raw veggies so I was able to chew on those if I got hungry. I didn't feel much of the detox symptoms, the first 2 days are a bit rough, especially giving up my morning coffee...or even my green tea! You have to be caffeine and alcohol free the entire time mind you, but it is only 6 days.
The packet flavors were yummy, I loved them all. You can even sample individual packets if you want to try before you buy, which in that case you really have nothing to lose!
It was difficult as times, I won't lie, but the end results can't be beat. I lose 10lbs and could just fit into the dress! I actually felt so good about the program I decided to continue part of the routine and swap out a meal for a smoothie instead, which has helped maintain my results! Taking a walk or doing some form of physical activity only enhances the outcome of course.
Weather you choose to maintain some form of this diet with a meal replacement smoothie or decided to adopt the clean eating/ vegan diet or just want to jump start your fitness and weight loss routine this is the perfect transition to slowly work yourself into a plan that is right for you! I LOVE this company, they helped explain everything and detail out every part of what to do and what to expect, making me feel very comfortable. They have special couples or wedding cleanse packages too, along with accessories to aide in the mixing process and creating your packets. They also JUST launched a skincare line that is worth checking out!
Stay Beautiful You!
