Did you love our last juice cleanse interview? Well, you're in luck because we are featuring another amazing person...Sheila!
And, here are Sheila's comments on her previous cleanse experience & her experience this time!
This is my second time cleansing. I did my first one some time last year. Both times, I've gone with a three day cleanse. For my first cleanse, I wanted to give my digestive system a break, spring cleaning, and detox. I was very surprised when I found that I never got hungry through the cleanse. Sure, I had cravings, but I can't recall my stomach actually rumbling from hunger. Through the cleanse, I found myself in this sort of middle ground with my energy levels. I wasn't really tired, it was more I just didn't feel any extra energy or even bursts of energy through the day. It was more of an even, steady, sustaining energy level - just enough to get me through the day. I slept like a ROCK though, and that was wonderful.
I decided to cleanse this time for the same reasons. I am rounding out my third and last day of the cleanse, and have had a very similar experience. The only main difference between this cleanse and my first cleanse is I am finding it harder to turn down food. Because my cravings for solids have been much stronger this go around, I decided to honor my body with healthy snacks through the day such as a handful of blueberries or nuts here and there. This has nourished me enough without making me feel like I've lost the digestive benefits of the cleanse.
All in all I would recommend trying a cleanse in any form for every person. It could be a one day cleanse, a juice for dinner for a few days cleanse, or whatever. I've found that through cleansing, the body adjusts it's expectations and it has a clearer understanding of what it really needs instead of what it simply wants.
