The TRUTH about my Jugolife 3 Day Juice Cleanse

It was awesome. I am not lying, and this is not a sponsored post; I paid for the juices with my own money. I wanted to do a juice cleanse because I was feeling pretty nauseous all day every day since my vacation (even while I was on vacation), and I wasn’t eating much anyways, so I figured at least with a juice cleanse, I’d be getting nutrients without exacerbating my sickness and without having to cook and clean.

Was it hard? No, not at all. (Honestly, doing a round of Whole30 is much harder because it requires preparation, cooking, cleaning, packing food, rinse and repeat for 40 days). I just packed up my juices in my lunch bag, and off I went. Tommy labels each juice, so you know in what order to drink the juices. No need to wash the containers, just drop them in the recycling bin. I am disappointed in myself that I didn’t try this sooner!

Was I hungry? Surprisingly, not really. I started each day nauseous anyways, but the juice seemed to soothe my system. I did drink hot tea (either green or black) with Vital Proteins collagen peptides every morning, so I’m sure the 10 grams of protein helped stave off some hunger. The first day, my stomach only grumbled twice, and I simply took a sip of juice, and it was gone. I probably took too long to drink each juice (an hour or more), simply because I got busy and forgot.

Did I lose weight/inches? Yes, probably. I don’t really weigh myself anymore, I prefer to go by how my clothes fit and how I look. Belly bloat was definitely gone, so less visible muffin top. I’d definitely recommend this for anyone trying to look their leanest for a special event.

Is it expensive? Depends how much you spend on food a day. 6 juices per day for 3 days came out to $115.00, so that breaks down to about $38.00 a day, so $12.67 if you eat three meals a day. BUT, $115 divided by 18 juices came out to $6.39 per juice. That’s a great deal. If you get in on the buddy cleanse, each juice comes down to $5.55.

What about poop? Well, that depends on how much you’ve been eating. I wasn’t eating much so there wasn’t much left in me. Liquids in, liquids out. Sorry for the TMI! The cleanse did help to get my digestion back on track, so in a couple of days of Whole30 eating, I am back to normal.

Should you do a juice cleanse? Maybe. If you come from a background of disordered eating, I will always recommend “no” to any alterations to your diet without consulting with your physician. For me, this definitely brought back the feelings of controlling every calorie I ingested along with forcing myself to not eat, so a juice cleanse can be a slippery slope. If you cannot ignore a little bit of hunger, don’t do this, you’ll cave halfway through day 1. BUT, if you want to give your digestive system a break and don’t want to or can’t eat solids, want to look your best for a special event, then YES, do this. If you are a bigger person, I’d supplement with a protein shake or another juice or two. My daily recommended calorie intake is 1100-1200, so I was fine.
