If you've ever listened to an enthusiastic juice faster, her testimonial can come across as a little far-fetched. From dropping 10 pounds to sleeping better, having better skin, and banishing grumpiness and chronic fatigue from the day to day grind, it seems as though there is nothing that a couple of days of juice fasting cannot do.

While fasting and cleansing for ritual purposes has been part of human history for millennia, the juice cleanse has enjoyed a popular resurgence in recent years. Brands like Cooler Cleanse, Joos, Shakeology, and BluePrint Cleanse are only a couple examples of the many juicing options that have appeared on the market in the last decade or so, all catering to men and women who want to look better and, perhaps more importantly, feel better. Master Cleanse, for example, originated in 1940 as a cure for stomach ulcers before the developer revived it in the '70s as a tool for weight loss.

In fact, the weight loss that accompanies refraining from food seems almost a second thought when reading what juice cleanse companies promise the world: everything from increased fertility and normalization of blood pressure to clearer skin and better digestion. No wonder Americans seem infatuated with the liquid diet! In promising to cleanse the body of toxins built up by lack of exercise, improper diet, and contact with everyday chemicals, it seems the answer to a slew of health problems caused by living in our modern world.

If you’ve ever listened to an enthusiastic juice faster, her testimonial can come across as
a little far-fetched. From dropping 10 pounds to sleeping better, having better skin, and
banishing grumpiness and chronic fatigue from the day to day grind, it seems as though
there is nothing that a couple of days of juice fasting cannot do.
While fasting and cleansing for ritual purposes has been part of human history for
millennia, the juice cleanse has enjoyed a popular resurgence in recent years. Brands like
Cooler Cleanse, Joos, Shakeology, and BluePrint Cleanse are only a couple examples of
the many juicing options that have appeared on the market in the last decade or so, all
catering to men and women who want to look better and, perhaps more importantly, feel
better. Master Cleanse, for example, originated in 1940 as a cure for stomach ulcers
before the developer revived it in the ‘70s as a tool for weight loss.
In fact, the weight loss that accompanies refraining from food seems almost a second
thought when reading what juice cleanse companies promise the world: everything from
increased fertility and normalization of blood pressure to clearer skin and better
digestion. No wonder Americans seem infatuated with the liquid diet! In promising to
cleanse the body of toxins built up by lack of exercise, improper diet, and contact with
everyday chemicals, it seems the answer to a slew of health problems caused by living in
our modern world.
Beverage Industry Magazine forecasts growth in sales of juices and yogurt drinks at a
rate of 4% a year through 2015, which would make juicing a billion dollar industry. I
myself, living in an urban area full of young professionals, can attest to the explosion in
the numbers of men and women around town carrying juice cleanse bottles; the hip
young women in my office have already organized a corporate discount with BluePrint
Cleanse, and its bible, “The 3-Day Cleanse Book”, has become required reading while
being passed from cubicle to cubicle.
One of my co-workers, for example, undergoes a juice cleanse at the start of every
season in addition to her impeccably vegan eating habits. Not only is she convinced that
her juicing will help her lose those final few pounds before her wedding next year, but she
also raves about the mental health benefits – clarity of mind, more energy, and a better

attitude – that she claims linger even after she begins to eat solid food again. She is
considering investing in a commercial juicer after seeing her BluePrint Cleanse bills
mount, but that hasn’t stopped her from preaching.
While word of mouth has been most responsible for the sudden interest in BluePrint
Cleanse at my office, well-known businesses like Whole Foods and Exhale Spa have also
played a large role in fostering the population’s infatuation with the juice cleanse. Its
close ties to the well-being movement make it a predictable partner for gyms and yoga
studios, where many a Lululemon-clad woman sips the trademark green juice in between
downward dogs.
The juice cleanse, however, is not without its fair share of skeptics. In an article about
cleansing from The New York Times, internist and dermatologist Dr. David Colbert points
out that the bowel is a self-cleaning organ evolved for millions of years to do the very
task that the juice cleanse purports to do.
“With a juice cleanse, what are you really cleaning? Really, nothing,” he said.
Certified health coach Nancy Kalish advises against juice cleanses because many people
are undiagnosed diabetics.
“These cleanses can cause spikes and crashes in blood sugar levels that could be quite
dangerous,” she said. “In addition, even if you have nothing wrong with you, this kind of
cleansing puts a lot of stress on your body. Your body wants and expects food. And as
with most crash diets, which is really what this is, your body thinks it’s starving. It doesn’t
know it’s going to get more food. So it lowers your metabolism, and if you do this enough,
it can lower your metabolism permanently.”
Is the juice cleanse worth it?
The verdict is out. While the secondary health benefits may be under debate, the juice
cleanse can be a surefire way to lose weight if done safely. In this guide, I will talk you
through three juicing methods – Shakeology, BluePrint Cleanse, and Master Cleanse – to
see which cleanse is the right match for your individual needs.

Shakeology is the most gentle of the three juice cleanses in this guide. It is not the
traditional cleanse in the sense that one must refrain from all solid foods while on this
diet, but the company claims that replacing one meal a day with one of their proprietary
shakes will help the body eliminate toxins while feeding the body much-needed nutrients
and minerals.
Shakeology is also the safest of the three options if you follow their recommended plan:
not only replacing one meal a day with this shake, but exercising three times a week and
following a balanced diet. A typical shake, with only 160 calories and 15g of protein,
boasts a treasure trove of antioxidants to fight free radicals and enzymes to aid digestion,
putting some weight behind their promise to detox the body.

Because Shakeology is not a juice fast but rather aims to be a long-term lifestyle change,
you will not lose rapid pounds on this diet though it may be easier to keep them off in the
long term. Since sources like the Mayo Clinic acknowledge that 3,500 calories equals
about one pound of fat, you need to burn 3,500 more calories than you consume to lose
one pound of fat. While losing one of two pounds a week on the Shakeology diet can be
expected with little change to physical activity, any more would be tough without

extensive exercise.
Take, for example, what happens when a hypothetical dieter replaces his or her lunch
sandwich – averaging 734 calories according to the New York City Department of Health
and Mental Hygiene, Bureau of Chronic Disease Prevention and Control - with a
Shakeology shake that has 160 calories. The difference of 574 calories, multiplied by
seven for the seven days of the week, equals over 4000 less calories consumed on
average. Even without Shakeology’s recommended 3 days of exercise a week, the dieter
would have lost one pound in seven days. With rigorous physical activity, the ambitious
dieter could lose up to two pounds a week by increasing that weekly difference of 4000
calories to 7000 calories, or the equivalent of two pounds of fat.
The reason why I give this more conservative estimate is that working off the extra 3000
calories is much more difficult than deciding not to consume them; the key to Shakeology
is to maximize calorie output through exercise without compensating for the extra
physical activity or meal replacement with more calorie-laden meals. In order for a man
to burn 3000 calories, he would have to run, on average, a distance of 24 miles. For a
woman, that number rises to 28. So if that woman wanted to lose two pounds a week of
fat while on the Shakeology program, she would have to find the time and energy – not to
mention fitness level – to run more than a marathon a week!
This is not to say that the Shakeology diet is ineffective. My extensive experience with
meal replacement programs shows that Shakeology, when followed diligently, can be a
safe and reliable way to lose weight. Study after study shows that setting modest weight
loss goals and focusing on weight loss as a lifestyle change is the best way to ensure that
those hard-lost pounds stay lost. In fact, experts like nutritionist Jane Schwartz advise a
weight loss of no more than 1 to 2 pounds per week for this very reason.
“Drastic calorie reductions only serve to decrease important muscle tissue, thereby
lowering your metabolism. This approach almost always backfires,” Schwartz says.
Therefore, in order the lose the 1 to 2 pounds per week on the Shakeology diet, it is
important to eat moderately and combine both cardiovascular and weight training to
your exercise routine. While cardiovascular exercise provides a reliable source of calorie
output, weight training is key for increasing the muscle tissue that boosts your
metabolism and burns more calories even while you are at rest.
While Shakeology recommends three workouts a day, I would make this a minimum
recommendation if you are serious about losing weight; an ideal workout schedule would
be to alternate cardiovascular training days with muscle training days in order to allow

As the trendiest juice cleanse at the time of writing this article, the popularity of BluePrint
Cleanse is such that at least one woman in my social circle finds herself in the middle of
this cleanse at any given time. I confess that I too, after undergoing this program several
times, can’t help but gush over its ability to flatten the stomach and move the scale down
four or five pounds in a matter of days.
The BluePrint Cleanse provides six organic, raw juices chock-full of vegetables, fruits, and
nuts to drink daily in lieu of all solid foods. While its reliance on only liquids makes the
cleanse inevitably less gentle than Shakeology, the nutritious ingredients in its juices
render it much easier on the body than a true fast; the website claims that a traditional
cleanse “stirs up detox symptoms that are far too intense for the ‘average’ person” and
promises that BluePrint Cleanse will “gently rid your body of impurities, regain an alkaline
balance and normalize digestion and metabolism.”
A quick glance at the list of ingredients will delight any health-conscious foodie. The
company produces five different kinds of juices that ostensibly serve different purposes
on the detox journey:
Green: the powerhouse in the lineup is the green juice that BluePrint Cleanse is known
for, with vegetables like kale, spinach, and cucumber muddled with lemon and ginger.
The apple juice in this concoction keeps the taste fresh and mildly sweet, and after
several cleanses I’ve found this to be my favorite of the company’s four juices. It
touts 6 pounds of leafy greens packed into one chlorophyll-laden bottle, and it isn’t
hard to imagine the body reveling while sipping the green stuff.
Red: beets, carrots, and apples provide this juice with a sweeter taste and an intense
scarlet color. The company claims that the antioxidant, anti-inflammatory properties
of beets, the carotenoids from carrots, and the fiber from apples help the body
protect itself against diseases like heart disease and cancer.
Yellow: agave sweetens the lemon juice while cayenne pepper packs a bunch. The
capsaicin from the cayenne pepper supposedly promotes respiratory health and
boosts metabolism, while the Vitamin C content in lemon juice promotes a healthy

immune system. The agave boasts a lower glycemic than traditional sugars, which
means it raises blood sugar content slowly and is able to sustain it more reliably. This
juice is the perfect amount of spicy and sweet and is reminiscent of the Master
Cleanse, which showcases the detox effects of spicy lemonade.
Gold: the fruitiest of the BluePrint Cleanse juices, pineapples and apples mix with mint
for a taste that mimics a well-made mojito. The company claims that the bromelain
from pineapples acts as an anti-inflammatory agent while aiding digestion, and the
mint is naturally antibacterial and antiseptic. This is the sweetest and most sugary-
tasting juice that BluePrint Cleanse offers.
White: a deliciously creamy cashew milk that provides the main source of protein in
the program. This juice contains cashews for protein and minerals as well as vanilla,
cinnamon, and agave for flavour and sweetness. As the most filling of the five, this
juice is always saved for the end of the day to take the place of dinner.
All three levels of the program – the Renovation Cleanse, the Foundation Cleanse, and the
Excavation Cleanse – incorporate these juices in their menus. The Renovation Cleanse,
meant to cater to the beginning cleanser with a less than pristine diet, offers all five. The
Foundation Cleanse, catering to the intermediate cleanser or someone already somewhat
conscious about their eating habits, incorporates all the juices except for the red juice.
And the Excavation Cleanse, catering to the advanced cleanser or the very conscious
eater, includes only the green juice, the yellow juice, and the white juice.

The difference between these three levels is the number of calories and the amount of
fruit juice vs. green juice offered. The Renovation Cleanse gives you 1100 calories a day,
the Foundation Cleanse gives you 1000, and the Excavation Cleanse only 900. And the
more advanced the cleanse, the less fruit juice and sugars there are to be consumed.
For this reason, I recommend the Excavation Cleanse to anyone interested in
BluePrint Cleanse, regardless of prior eating habits. The green juice is the powerhouse of
the lineup by virtue of its 6 lbs of raw produce in each bottle, and though the other fruit-
based juices have benefits of their own, the 45 grams of sugar in the gold pineapple juice
and 37 grams of sugar in the red beet juice means both of these juices have a higher
sugar content than a can of coke.
If you do decide to go on the Excavation Cleanse, the next question is, for how long?
Unfortunately, at $65 a day, much of this depends on your budget. I recommend at least
three full, consecutive days to get all benefits of the cleanse, and more if you can afford
it, though no longer than ten days without the supervision of a doctor. Even one day of
cleansing has benefits to the body because it has a chance to refrain from digesting high-
toxin, processed foods.
As for exercise, listen to your body! You may feel like low-impact yoga might be all
you can muster or feel so energized that you want to tackle a spinning class. If your goal
is to lose weight on the BluePrint Cleanse, remember that you will do so even without
exercise, although physical activity can only add to the detox benefits. Excess physical
activity while on a liquid diet can make you feel feeble or lightheaded, in which case you
should stop. A woman that I know actually fainted from the combination of too much
strenuous exercise and BluePrint Cleanse, so be careful!
The last thing to keep in mind when embarking on a juice cleanse is how to prepare
the body in the few days before an all-liquid diet and how to re-introduce solid foods once
the fast is over. Because you want to refrain from delivering a shock to your body when
starting or ending the cleanse, indulging in pizza and beer the night before the cleanse is
a bad idea, as is breaking the fast with sausages and pancakes. The idea is that the more
vegan and raw you can manage before and after the fast, the better; in other words,
make your meals in the days leading up to and following the juice cleanse look as much
like the juices as possible.
Below is a step by step guide on what the ideal three day cleanse would look like,
based on the Excavation Cleanse:

3 days before cleanse:
Stop eating meat and dairy.
Fish steamed or cooked very lightly in oil is a protein-rich dinner option, and make
sure to include as many vegetables as possible throughout the day.
Have a green salad (go light on the dressing and croutons!) for lunch.
Cut out alcohol, caffeine, and refined sugar.
2 days before cleanse:
Try to incorporate as much green salad into your day as possible.
For healthy fats to satiate your hunger, try a half avocado sprinkled with chili oil and
sea salt.
Try a starchy root vegetable if you’re craving carbs.
1 day before cleanse:
Avoid starches and carbs in favor of yet more green salads and steamed vegetables.
Incorporating a half avocado for dinner will provide beneficial fats and protein.
Drinking Kombucha tea, which is loaded with probiotics, will aid digestion.
First day of cleanse:
Wake up to a tall glass of water with lemon, a natural astringent, to hydrate your
body after sleeping for 8 hours. Keep the water room temperature as opposed to cold
so you don’t shock the body.
Drink the first juice of the day, a green juice. The company advocates always drinking
the green juice first because an empty stomach is more apt to absorb whatever you
put into it, and the green juice has the most vitamins and nutrients.
Drink at least one glass of water.
After approximately two and half hours after the first juice, drink the second juice of
the day, another green juice. This is your mid-morning juice.
Drink at least one glass of water.

After approximately two and a half hours after the second juice, drink the third juice of
the day, another green juice. This is your lunch.
Drink at least one glass of water.
After approximately two and a half hours after the third juice, drink the fourth juice of
the day, the yellow juice. As your mid-afternoon snack, this spicy lemonade is
excellent at warding off hunger because of its sweet and spicy taste.
Drink at least one glass of water.
Before you leave work, drink your green juice as your fifth. It should be around 5pm.
Go for a walk around the neighborhood, a light jog, or a yoga class to get the blood
pumping and your body’s detox process into high gear.
Drink at least one glass of water.
In lieu of dinner, drink the cashew milk at around 7:30pm or 8pm. You will be surprised
by how filling this is! Make sure you drink this at least two hours before you sleep so
your body can rest completely while asleep.
Second day of cleanse:
Repeat your first day’s juicing schedule, and keep in mind that the second day of the
cleanse is usually the most difficult. Your body will be hungry, likely experiencing
unpleasant detox effects like headaches and crankiness, while it is most likely too
early to experience the cleanse’s euphoric effects.
If you have a caffeine withdrawal headache that is threatening to ruin your day, have
a cup of green tea.
Engage in some form of physical activity. Even a walk around the block is beneficial.
Third day of cleanse:
By this day, you should be feeling fantastic! Less bloated and slimmer than ever with
lots of energy and a clear mind.
Whether you are feeling rigorous or restful, stretch out your limbs if you don’t feel like
engaging in any high-intensity activity. Moving your muscles will help your body flush
out toxins.

Make sure you’re drinking lots of water to stay hydrated.
Day after the cleanse:
Even if the thought of fries and brownies makes you salivate, be gentle to your body
when you transition back to solid foods. You may be surprised to find that the kinds of
food your body craves are whole and healthy!
Refrain from caffeine, dairy, and meat.
Eat fresh fruits for breakfast. To your body, they are most similar to the juices you’ve
been drinking for the past three days.
Eat greens for lunch, with maybe some avocado to satiate you. Be light with the
dressing!
For dinner, try low sodium broths, fresh fruit, or vegetables either fresh or steamed.
As you can see, cleansing can be hard work. It takes planning and dedication to
achieve the “reboot” effect of a successful fast. While you will lose pounds, and many of
them – all those greens weren’t for nothing – the goal of a successful juice cleanse is to
change your way of thinking about food and ensure better health in the long term. Once
you experience how good it feels to eat clean, fresh, and raw, the hope is that you will be
less likely to fall back on heavy, highly processed foods.

Among the three cleanses outlined in this guide, the Master Cleanse is the closest to a
true fast by virtue of its austerity and simplicity: add fresh lemon juice, maple syrup, and
cayenne pepper to water and drink whenever hungry, between six and twelve glasses per
day. Because it is the lowest calorie option, it is also the hardest on the body and has the
most potential for rapid weight loss, though devotees of this Cleanse claim that weight
loss is but a side effect this whole-body overhaul.
While the Master Cleanse – also called the Lemonade Diet, the Master Cleanser,
Maple Syrup Diet, Lemonade Cleanse, and the Beyonce Diet – was first created by
Stanley Burroughs in 1941, it enjoyed renewed popularity in the 1970s’ and another
resurgence recently, after celebrities like Beyonce advocated the fast as a tool for rapid
weight loss.
In order to achieve the greatest benefit from the cleanse, Master Cleanse founder
Stanley Burroughs recommends the following schedule:
1. Each morning, drink one quart of purified spring water with two teaspoons of salt. You
can substitute this with a cup of herbal laxative tea if the salty taste is too much, but
the purpose of this morning ritual is to encourage bowel movements.
2. Drink six to twelve homemade lemonade drinks during the day, interspersed with as
much purified water as you wish.
3. In the evening, drink another cup of herbal laxative tea or the salt water flush, one
quart of purified spring water with two teaspoons of salt.
Below are the touted benefits of the key ingredients, which should always be organic and
unrefined, of this cleanse. Even water must be purified through a filter before mixing with
the below ingredients:
Lemons: a digestive aid and liver cleanser, the citric acid, calcium, magnesium,
vitamin C, bioflavonoids, and limonene give it strong antibacterial and antiviral
properties. Lemons alkalize the body, breaking and loosening congestion within so
cells may be recycled and regenerated

Maple syrup: the trace mineral manganese can be found in maple syrup, which serves
an an essential cofactor in a number of enzymes that defend your body against free
radicals. Also found in maple syrup is zinc, which has beneficial effects on heart health
and the immune system. Grade B maple syrup is highly recommended for its taste
and mineral content.
Cayenne pepper: this ingredient increases metabolism and benefits the circulatory
system. It has the ability to regulate blood pressure and clean the arteries of bad LDL
cholesterol and triglycerides, and can also stimulate the intestines to aid digestion.

The complete Master Cleanse plan involves ten days of juice fasting, with an onboarding
and offboarding period of a couple of days much like BluePrint Cleanse. While the
onboarding period is largely optional and more for increasing your comfort during the
first few days of cleansing, the method in which you break a long fast like Master Cleanse
is very important.
Peter Glickman, an avid advocate of the cleanse and an experienced cleanser
himself, recommends that you give your fast two additional days of no solid food, drinking
orange or grapefruit juice instead and home-cooked vegetable soup for dinner. He
suggests raw fruits and vegetables on the third day and phasing in meat or milk products
slowly after that if you must. He also advises probiotics after breaking the fast to replace
your body’s store of good bacteria.

Losing weight on this diet is a no-brainer. The body, when deprived of solid food for
ten days, will shed pounds. But is it safe?
While drinking nothing but spicy lemonade for a few days may be relatively
harmless, Kathleen Zelman, MPH, RD, LD, points out that this kind of diet can be
dangerous to your health because it is deficient in “all the essential nutrients”: calories,
vitamins, minerals, protein, carbohydrates, fiber, and fat. She also brings up the fact that
the Master Cleanse does not prescribe any kind of exercise, “probably because physical
activity would be difficult on a starvation diet,” and that the pounds shed from the serious
calorie deficit comes from water weight and muscles loss, not fat loss.
She quotes WedMD fitness expert Pamela Peeke, MD, who points out that without
enough protein in the diet, your body burns its own muscle mass instead. The dieter may
reach his or her goal weight, but the body will have a higher fat to muscle ratio.
“Lean muscle and fluids are the first to go on starvation diets, not belly fat,”
American Dietetic Association spokeswoman Melinda Johnson, RD, says. “And the
problem is that when you lose muscle mass, you turn down your metabolism, so it is
counterproductive when you return to normal eating.”
Despite the almost universal condemnation of Master Cleanse among experts, fans
of the juice fast are steadfast in their testimonials.
On a Master Cleanse website, Marsha Hostetler claims that her 13 days on the
Master Cleanse has allowed her to come off all of her medications as she has stopped
feeling pain from Rheumatoid Arthritis.
“Four weeks ago I was walking with a cane!” she says. “I have not had an asthma
attack, my thyroid has not giving me any trouble. I look younger and feel younger, my
skin is baby soft. I have more energy than I thought possible.”
While I can’t speak for the health benefits of the Master Cleanse, drinking nothing
but spicy lemonade for many days will cause you to lose weight. If you need to lose
weight or cut bloat fast for a special event, the Master Cleanse will do the trick; for a
more long-term weight loss solution, however, the Master Cleanse is not recommended
for the many reasons outlined above by health and nutrition experts.
4. Common Mistakes to Avoid

each program is designed to affect the body differently despite their common potential
for weight loss: Shakeology, for example, serves as a long-term solution, while Master
Cleanse is meant to be a kind of ritual cleanse of the body over a limited period of time.
If you are on the Shakeology diet, the most common mistake is to compensate for your
meal replacement’s calorie difference on your other meals. In other words, it may be
tempting to eat a more caloric breakfast or dinner after replacing your lunch with a
shake, whether because you feel “better” doing so mentally or because you are hungrier
than before.
Another pitfall is that snacking may increase in between your meals, especially in the
couple of hours after your shake and before your next meal. While snacking is, in itself,
not an unhealthy activity, and can in fact be very beneficial to weight loss if your choice
of snacks veer protein-rich and fiber-rich, it can be easy to snack out of control if you’ve
only had a shake instead of your usual sandwich.
Because the potential for weight loss on the Shakeology diet is smaller than a more
drastic cleanse option like BluePrint Cleanse or Master Cleanse, it is important to be
vigilant about the calories you ingest from solid foods. Like I explained above, weight loss
in the range of one or two pounds a week is ideal for the long-term, and this is a very
attainable goal on the Shakeology diet if you follow the rules: careful eating and abundant
physical activity.
The most common mistake on BluePrint Cleanse is that many dieters forego the
company’s extensive advice regarding the onboarding and offboarding process. If you
don’t want to feel the unpleasant effects of a sudden detox – hunger pangs, jarring
headaches, irritability – you must introduce your body to an all-liquid diet in as gentle of a
manner as possible.
Abruptly switching to raw juices six times a day after keeping up unhealthy or
indulgent eating habits until the eve of the cleanse can shock your body into discomfort.
Aside from the physical annoyances, doing so inhibits the cleanse from performing its
true work of giving your body a vacation because it may still be reeling from the previous
day’s gluttony.
Likewise, eating a debaucherous “celebration” meal right after you complete the
BluePrint Cleanse can open your body up for problems. You may feel nauseous or have
digestive issues as your body must kick quickly into full gear to process that steak or
pasta. It is also counterproductive to the ethos of BluePrint Cleanse, which is set up to
prepare your body and mind for healthier eating habits long after you’re done sipping

their juices.
Master Cleanse, as the most dramatic of the cleanses explored in this guide, also
has the most room for error. Common mistakes include not hydrating properly during the
cleanse with lots of fresh water and pushing your body beyond its limits through vigorous
exercise, though the mistake maybe as simple and easy to avoid as using fake maple
syrup instead of real maple syrup, preferably Grade B. Because fake maple syrup is
loaded with refined sugar or corn syrup as opposed to being sourced from tree sap, it has
a much higher glycemic index and can be disastrous for the blood sugar of someone
drinking it exclusively.
Another common mistake is to not take seriously the laxative portion of the Master
Cleanse. Master Cleanse guru Peter Glickman describes the program as having two parts,
the Agitator and Rinse Cycle. The spicy lemonade that you drink throughout the day
performs the task of the Agitator, dissolving the old waste in your body, while the salt
water flush and laxative teas represent the Rinse Cycle, stimulating your intestine to
slough off that old waste agitated by the spicy lemonade. You can imagine how your
body’s failure to eliminate the mobilized toxins in your body can cause further problems.
The toxins, instead of leaving the body, become re-absorbed and you will feel sick, tired,
and achy.
5. Tips and Tricks
If you decide to go on the Shakeology diet, what you eat in the meals you don’t
replace with the proprietary shake will have a huge impact on your weight loss. To this
end, eat a balanced breakfast of 300-500 calories in the morning so you don’t feel hungry
later on in the day and limit your intake of carbohydrates in the evening and nighttime.
Keep a food journal and make sure the number of calories you consume in your meals
after starting the cleanse does not go up.
If your aim is to detox as well as lose weight on Shakeology, then try adapting a raw
food diet to complement the enzymes and probiotics in the shake. If a raw food diet
sounds too intense, try eating as little processed foods as possible while on the
Shakeology program. After all, if the ingredients in the shake aim to cleanse the body of
the chemicals and toxins built up by highly-processed foods, it does no good to put them
right back in the body, meal after meal.
If you decide that BluePrint Cleanse is the best match for you, then plan your
cleanse to occur during the time that you have the least amount of social or professional
obligations. You know your lifestyle best! For example, if you are one to have a very

active weekend out and about, then it may be wise to plan your cleanse for during the
week. If your weekday nights are crowded with work events, then a low-key weekend
may be the best time for a cleanse.
If you absolutely must eat something during your BluePrint Cleanse, opt for a food
that’s very easily digestible and non-instrusive to your digestive system. This might mean
low-sodium vegetable broth as opposed to a fiber-rich stalk of broccoli, or a very lightly
salted piece of avocado as opposed to a handful of nuts.
Want to tackle the Master Cleanse? The main strategy here is to be prepared. Mark your
calendar with the dates you want to cleanse and try to plan your social or work
obligations around it. Refraining from all other food and drink is crucial for the Master
Cleanse, and even low-sodium vegetable broth is looked down upon.
Write down your thoughts, reactions, and feelings to the juice fast in a journal for the
duration of the Master Cleanse. Read your entries whenever you feel a craving and be
energized! Write down all of the things you want to accomplish through this cleanse,
whether it may be weight loss, a more positive attitude in life, or obtaining self-
confidence and a feeling of agency.
And for all three cleanse options, try to make your environment as conducive to your
weight loss journey as possible. This means not having potato chips around the house on
Day 7 of the Master Cleanse or ice cream in the freezer while preparing your body for
BluePrint Cleanse. You may be the most disciplined person on the planet, but why make it
harder for yourself?

Whether your goal is to feel less tired in the day to day office grind, more in control of
your emotional eating, or even if it is weight loss alone, there is a cleanse diet out there
for you! Shakeology, BluePrint Cleanse, and Master Cleanse handily illustrate the
spectrum of choices in the juice cleanse market, which has rapidly evolved to adapt to
the needs of a broad variety of people.
Are you looking for a gentle, long-term option that you can undergo indefinitely? Try
the Shakeology diet, which asks nothing from you other than to replace a meal with one
of their proprietary shakes and moderate exercise. Are you a foodie who wants to see
what the juice cleanse is all about without sacrificing nutrition? The BluePrint Cleanse,
with its neat rows of bottles delivered to your door, presents an easy, if expensive,
solution. And if you are well-versed in the art of the cleanse and want to try a juice diet as
close to a true water-only fast as possible, then the Master Cleanse provides community
and treasure trove of glowing testimonials.
Whatever cleanse you decide to go with, listen to your body. The successful cleanse,
after all, aims to make you feel better than you ever have before. While detox symptoms
such as caffeine-withdrawal headaches are entirely normal, feeling weak and faint for
days is not. If you are an inexperienced cleanser, don’t embark on an epic juice cleanse
without your doctor’s approval. Use your common sense to guide you, and good luck!
