I tried a 24 hour Juice Cleanse: Here is what happened

I don’t know how this happened but I decided to try a 24- hour juice-to-dinner-cleanse.  I was hesitant to do this cleanse, because I get hungry a lot and always I need something to snack on. Snacking is my kryptonite.

If I had to choose between chips and salsa or salmon and potatoes, I am picking chips and salsa. I have done a smoothie cleanse before (left me bloated) but a juice cleanse? I didn’t know if I could be disciplined enough to commit.

Taking the Plunge: What is a juice to dinner cleanse?

Typically, a 24-hour juice cleanse is where you are drinking vegetable and fruit juices for an entire day without any solid food. I have thought that was a bit too extreme for me and my lifestyle.

Thank goodness that I have a friend who is completely understanding and also a healthy guru, she was able to reassure me that I could do it. We decided to do the juice to dinner cleanse at Juice Keys.

Total price

Their juices are fresh, cold-pressed, and organic. I think they have the best juices in Raleigh, hands down. The cleanse comes with 4 juices, 2 shots, 1 energy ball and a salad for $66.00.

The price might sound alarming, but when you think about it that is a lot for whole unprocessed food. Check out the photos below:

How would I sum up my 24- hour juice cleanse?

 I think this cleanse was pretty legit, I felt super refreshed, but I was already doing the 15-day- water detox so I think that helped me as well. I would do this cleanse again and I hope to extend my cleanse to at least three days or longer.

Thanks for reading,
