How The Body Reacts To A Juice Cleanse – Saturday Strategy


How The Body Reacts To A Juice Cleanse – Saturday Strategy

Your body is biologically wired to make sure you breathe, drink water and eat every single day. These are basic, fundamental things you have to do in order to stay alive. In short – your body has got your back and is obsessed with keeping you alive!  

What does this have to do with juice fasting?

A juice cleanse, or juice fasting, is when you abstain from whole food consumption and only drink (mostly) vegetable juice; adding a small amount of fruit for sweetness is acceptable as well. When used correctly and carefully, juice fasting can be a nourishing, revitalizing tool to improve your health and wellbeing.

Juice fasting comes with a host of health benefits. For me, I especially appreciate how it seems to clear my mind, superboost my focus and enhance my creative abilities. Not to mention I always feel lighter and have a ton more energy!

The most popular benefits of juice fasting include:

  • Break the habit of unhealthy eating
  • Skyrocket the number of veggies/fruits you consume daily
  • Lose weight
  • Manage weight
  • Promote longevity
  • Detoxify your cells
  • Increase energy
  • Lower risk of chronic disease
  • Decrease pain levels in the body
  • Promote healthy skin, hair and nails
  • Soothe the digestive system and give it a much needed rest
  • Ramp up immunity

Juice fasting isn’t always easy, though. Or everyone would be doing it. But I wanna let you in on a little secret…

You are more than capable and you can get through it.  And you will feel SO GOOD afterwards that you will want to do it over and over again. I like to do it quarterly, at the very least. Sometimes I just do a one day cleanse.

What Happens To Your Body During A Juice Cleanse

When you begin a juice fast, your body, which is used to chewing and digesting whole foods and fiber multiple times a day, is suddenly presented with just LIQUID. Your brain and your cells actually think that you are only giving yourself water!

You see, when you chew, enzymes are secreted in your mouth and the whole digestion process is stimulated in your body. When you are only drinking liquid, your body knows something is UP!

Your body may start sending some LOUD signs about how hungry you are! But don’t worry! There will be plenty of good things happening too.

Some potential side effects include:

  • Funny bowel movements
  • Nausea
  • Temporary worsening of body odor/bad breath/skin flare-ups (signs your body is in detox mode)
  • Fatigue
  • Headaches 

IF these occur, it’s typically within the first 48 hours. And once you get past these, you’ll begin to feel AMAZING. Light. Clear. Unburdened. Focused. Energetic.

My Own Experience

The first time I went on a juice fast, my symptoms were pretty bad because I had been eating so many processed, low-fiber foods for most of my life… so I experienced some sugar, carb and caffeine withdrawals. Not fun.

Then, I got to a point where everything shifted.

The hunger switch in my body was literally turned off and suddenly I woke up lighter than I’d ever felt in my entire life.

  • I felt like I could see more clearly.
  • I felt like I could FOCUS for hours.
  • My creativity levels went THROUGH THE ROOF!
  • I felt like spirituality came easier
  • I felt grounded.
  • My digestive system was given a much needed break
  • My body was able to focus on healing and cleansing

This is what a juice cleanse could do for you, too.

I’m telling you, when you stop thinking about what you are going to eat all day you start to realize that you have more time to think about the important stuff!

Not only that, but when you start juicing and eating healthy, nutrient-dense foods – you can actually heal your cells. When your mitochondria aren’t having to constantly battle inflammation and free radicals, they can actually focus on proper DNA functioning and cell repair.
