I felt great on the cleanse. I had energy, was constantly satisfied and felt healthy. Coming off the cleanse is what I had a hard time with. I wasn't hungry but I needed to eat. I tried to slowly introduce food to my system but it rejected everything I ate – raw carrots, celery, steel cut oatmeal to cooked vegetables. Saturday night I had two glasses of wine and my head was spinning. I was hoping to get back to the gym over the weekend, but my body was too weak and I felt lethargic. Eventually by Monday I felt better and got back into my routine of eating normally and going to the gym and yoga.
I realized that I must have been eating foods that didn't sit well with me before the cleanse so I did some research and have been following a low-FODMAP and have been feeling great since. I also incorporated some of the things the Juice Press taught us like how to make the Chia Pudding - so easy and delicious and makes a great dessert! I don't know if I would necessarily do a juice cleanse again, but it absolutely made me think of how I eat and be more conscious of what I put in my body. As they say, "You are what you eat"!
