Squeezed Online 3-Day Juice Cleanse

Happy Friday lovelies,

We made it to another weekend. WOOHOO! Today I wanted to talk about my experience with the Squeezed Online’s 3 Day juice cleanse. I tried this cleanse earlier in the year and I’ve been itching to do another one.

This was my first time completing a juice cleanse and when I first went to make my order, I was completely petrified. WOULD I miss food? WOULD I be able to compete it? WOULD I get sick?

My only other experience with a cleanse was back when I first graduated from college and decided to attempt BeyoncĂ©’s Spicy Lemonade Diet. I started strong by preparing the ingredients and failed horribly when my nose got a whiff of my dad’s breakfast sausage and pancakes. Needless to say, I had zero self-control…I blame it on living at home.

Going back to the Squeezed Cleanse I did, one of my main concerns was the side effects. Luckily the only side effect that I did have was a headache the first day, but that was easily solved by one of the handy dandy tips I have below.

I will say I did miss food. Simply because I was around it the majority of the first day. But I did prevail! I was able to complete it and it was fairly easy too! Mainly because I paid for the juices and I HATE wasting money and I was also hungry (no pun intended) to complete it. I was in the right mindset to complete compared to my Spicy Lemonade Cleanse efforts.

I’m saying all of this to say, if you’re thinking about doing a cleanse, I say do it! You really have nothing to lose, aside from bad cravings and hopefully a few pounds. I personally lost 5 pounds from my cleanse and was able to keep them off (until I started eating extremely poorly again). 

Below are some tips I think would be helpful for anyone who is doing a cleanse for the first time.
  • DO add water to your juice once you’ve finished drinking half of it. This helped me with headaches I had the first day of the cleanse. Once I started adding water to the juices, I didn’t have any more headaches.
  •  DO NOT go to social functions that involve food during your cleanse. I did this on my first day and it was miserable looking at everyone eat Mexican food. Try to stay away from temptations to make your cleanse as easy as possible.
  •  DO start your cleanse on a weekend if possible. It was easier for me to manage when I wasn’t at work. I was able to adjust the first two days, which made my third day a breeze.
  •  DO ease into eating after you complete your cleanse. On my first day after the cleanse, I assumed my body could handle whatever I ate as long as it wasn’t bad. Make sure you start with steamed veggies, fruits, etc. that make it easier on the stomach to digest.

As I mentioned earlier, I’m craving to get another juice cleanse in the books, but this time for a longer period. Going for the 7-day! I’m hoping to do it this summer and will keep you posted and include you all along for the ride.

Let me know in the comments if you’ve tried a juice cleanse or are wanting to try one!
