Anyone else out there a juicer? I’m so excited! I completed my first-ever 3-day juice cleanse with a company out of Austin called, SkinnyLimits. I have to admit I wasn’t so sure I could complete a 3-day day juice cleanse…much less LIKE it. But you know what….I LOVED IT! In this post I’m going to tell you ALL about it (so pardon that I’m going to write a bit more than normal). AND if you are interested in trying a juice cleanse for yourself be sure to utilize the special discount code at the bottom (note: it expires January 31).
I did the SkinnyLimits 3-Day Standard juice cleanse. Which includes 4 different juices: 3 Pure & Simples (Green Juice), 1 Balance (Green Ginger), 1 Scorpion Lemonade (Cayenne Lemonade), 1 Crescent Moon (Cashew Nut Milk). You will drink a total of 6 16-oz. juices per day (and no eating).
One of the first questions I have gotten is always, “Did they taste good?” And the answer is a SOLID YES! They tasted so good that my 2-year-old liked every single one! I will say, you need to like cucumber and ginger which are a bit more dominant tastes in two of the juices. For the lemonade, it has cayenne in it so if you are sensitive to spice you might want to do a different juice.
The first day everything was going great until about half way through the day. I got a light headache which lasted most of the day. However, this is because the toxins were leaving my body and is normal. Day 2 I woke up feeling pretty good and started feeling better and better. By Day 3 I felt AWESOME. Tons of extra energy and surprisingly not hungry. After Day 3 I even wished I was doing a 5-day cleanse!
One of the other big questions I kept getting was, “Weren’t you hungry?” Surprisingly, not. I would occasionally get munchy around meal times but I would just go straight to my next juice and all was good.
The NUMBER ONE question I always get is, “Did you lose weight?” YES! I lost 6 lbs. in three days. But please remember this is technically not for weight loss. It’s to detox your body. The weight loss, I think is an added benefit. The key is to use the program as a jump start to try and start living a healthy lifestyle. Since coming off the cleanse I’ve been eating clean and working shakes/juices in to my daily life.
My favorite juice was the Crescent Moon that you get to drink at the end of the day. It is like dessert and your reward for completing another day! The first time Luke had a sip of it it promptly smiled and said, “Mmmm it’s cake!” Ha!
I can’t even imagine how much time it would take to make all these juices. It was incredibly convenient to just reach in and grab one. With my work schedule, a two-year-old and everything else in my days I don’t know if I could have done the full cleanse if I’d had to make everything on my own.
Now I’m three days out from when I completed the cleanse and I still feel awesome! Above is a discount code for you to use in case you’d like to try it as well! And if you have any questions about the cleanse please feel free to comment.
