A recent study put out by the UCLA School of Medicine concluded that a “3-day juice fast significantly decreased body weight and BMI for at least two weeks,” reinforcing what we juice junkies already know-- Juice is a great way to jumpstart a new lifestyle change! Starting off with a cleanse to shed the first few pounds is a great way to motivate yourself to keep going, once you see results you won’t want to quit your new healthy changes.
What is one secret to getting clearer skin, increasing energy, aiding weight loss, and improving your mood and heart health? It may sound to good to be true, but the answer is simple: stay hydrated! As easy as it sounds, it’s also too easy to overlook the importance of hydration. Starting off with a super hydrating juice cleanse can help get you back on track to get and stay hydrated in the new year.
When starting to eat healthy, our biggest obstacle is usually the unhealthy habits we’ve created for ourselves. Whether it’s a sugar addiction, a tendency to eat out of boredom, or habit of grabbing snacks from a vending machine instead of packing ahead, we’ve all found ourselves cultivating bad eating habits. Ease yourself into new habits by starting off with a cleanse- that way, your first few days of healthy eating are already thought up for you and easy to grab-and-go, no matter what your day throws at you. Without the need to think of what to make for your next meal, it’ll be easier to take your mind off food and forget the foods and habits you want to leave behind in 2016.
The UCLA School of Medicine study also found that two weeks after the 3 day juice fast, “general well-being scores increased significantly from baseline.” Start your year off feeling healthier in mind and body by feeding your body what it needs. You can feel good knowing you’re doing the right thing for your body, and your body will thank you for it!
