If you’re looking to get healthy this year and feeling like your bad eating habits weren’t left behind in 2011, look no further. Although you can always count on Snooki to talk about big muscle Juice-heads, you don’t have to love the Jersey Shore to try this kind of “juicing”.
Juice cleanses have become increasingly popular in the recent months and with a new brand popping up daily, it’s tough to know where to start. Many juice cleanses rely on similar principles. This review will teach you more about Pressed Juicery, a company that is popular in Los Angeles, but you can use this information to help you understand other juice cleanses also, in case Pressed Juicery is not easily accessible to you.
Pressed Juicery offers its “drinkers” cold-pressed juices. What the heck is a cold-pressed juice? It’s a method of pressing produce to squeeze out the most nutrients and benefits from each fruit or vegetable that is used. It does not grind or cut through the produce like a traditional blender, preserving the essential vitamins and minerals when you drink each juice. This method also allows the juice to stay fresh for a longer time than when using a blender.
Just like any workout, it’s important to warm up before juicing. Trading out your Cheetos for celery is tough at first, but this cleanse makes it easy for you. If you were eating highly processed foods, large amounts of meat or dairy, or high levels of refined sugars, a cleanse from Pressed Juicery may shock your body. Make an attempt to eliminate some of the processed foods and sugars a few days before you start juicing.
Whether you’re a newbie or an expert, you’ll find a cleanse that’s right for you. To start, log on to the website at www.pressedjuicery.com and take a quiz that will help identify which cleanse is right for you. It probes you for your daily eating habits, vices, and more. Within seconds you’ll get a recommendation of a personalized cleanse. Next, you get to pick a variation of each juice to suit your likes (or dislikes). Finally, you select a three or five-day option and you’re on your way. Novice juicers might want to consider the three-day cleanse.
When you actually receive your juices in the mail, or after you pick them up locally, you should refrigerate them to help preserve freshness.Over the course of the next few days you enjoy each juice in the order described without eating any food in between. This can be difficult if you have never done a cleanse before. Typically, it’s not that you are actually hungry. It’s more that you are used to chewing and eating, which makes drinking liquids all day harder on your mind and body. If you stick to it, however, you will likely feel a surge of energy and feel good about what you are putting into your body. The second half of day two can get tough, but the protein juice (either almond milk, or a variation) is a great reward to look forward to. Many of the other juices are made with ingredients like Kale, Parsley, Ginger, Grapefruit, Strawberry, and Coconut-to name a few, so its hard to go wrong with any of the cleanses or juices alone.
The Bottom Line: Pressed Juicery juices taste great and are packed with tons of nutrients that many of us are lacking. During this cleanse, your body also gets a rest from the preservatives, dairy, meat, and sugars that many of us consume day after day. For many people, this can be exactly what they need to set out on a path to eating better and treating their body with a bit more respect. If a cleanse is too much for you, incorporating the juices into your diet and daily life can be another way to help you feel better about your health. If you’re hoping to lose a lot of weight or think this is a quick diet, you may be juicing for the wrong reasons. Any weight loss you have will probably be very temporary, and once you incorporate solid foods back into your diet you may see the weight return. It’s healthier and safer for you to start eating more fruits and vegetables and less processed foods after you finish this cleanse. The good news is, once you’re done you’re likely to feel energized and motivated to consume better foods. Speak to your personal physician before beginning this cleanse. If you have specific medical condition (like diabetes, or are pregnant) you should not do a cleanse.
As for cost, this cleanse is not inexpensive. Having said that, it combines several wholesome ingredients and makes juicing extremely convenient. It’s one of the easiest ways to get the benefits of fruits and vegetables if you can’t eat all of them daily. Many of the juices are also delicious, which is an added, and important benefit. If you’re not sure about committing to this cleanse, consider trying some of the juices separately and give it a test run. At the end of the day, your skin will look great and your body will feel rejuvenated!
