I realize I have not given an update on my juice cleanse. I actually made it only 2 days and had to stop. I felt very weak and tired and although it's supposed to help if you are constipated, it actually made things worse for me. I was told by another trainer that I have too much muscle to be able to maintain a diet like that when I need to feed my muscles like they are used to being fed. I wasn't able to workout and definitely would not have been able to lift, which is a must for me! I did watch the documentary "Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead" and really enjoyed it. I encourage everyone to see it. The juice detox definitely does work for a lot of people, I just didn't want to toy around with my digestive system anymore and definitely didn't want to loose muscle in the process. I still drink juices, but as a supplement to my regular diet. I am now sticking to strict paleo, so I plan on posting more paleo recipes soon.

I have decided to start a juice cleanse. I have heard and read such great things about doing a cleanse and decided I need to try this myself! Juice cleanses rid your body of all toxins and junk and actually detoxes the body. At the end of the detox I should feel cleansed, lighter, have less pain in my body and be able to perform better physically and mentally. I plan to start my 10 day cleanse on this Thurs.. I will be posting my journey on this blog updating day by day what my body is doing and how I am feeling each day. This, along with how I'll feel, will keep me motivated! I'll also post the juice recipes that I am using and my opinion of each one. After tomorrow, the detoxifying begins!
