When choosing what duration of juice cleanse to go for its a good idea to consider your experience at cleansing, your will power and how you respond to cravings that may arise. If you’re new to cleansing, choose a two or three day cleanse, whereas if you are more experienced and have cleansed multiple times, select a five day cleanse. Also, consider your goals, consider what you’re hoping to achieve from your cleanse, such as improved energy and digestion and select the appropriate cleanse.
What you eat and drink in the three days before your cleanse is often just as important as the cleanse itself. For the three days prior to starting your juice cleanse, eliminate processed food, alcohol, caffeine, sugar, dairy and meat from your diet. An added advantage here is that the cravings and/or withdrawals that sometimes come from removing such foods and drinks should have subsided by the time you start your cleanse, making the whole process easier and more enjoyable.
