Cleansing My Body

Today I am going to embark on my cleansing ritual. I try to do this one a month and find it beneficial. Perhaps you would like to try it too.

This is basically a juice diet. Although it is recommended to do this for a week, I usually only do it for about three days.It gives my tummy a rest and helps to bring my weight down too. I find juicing so much easier to handle than any other diets that I have tried and most importantly, I never feel hungry. A plus point that I never expected was that it actually clears my skin.

The main ingredients in my juice diet are pineapples and apples. I have my juice about four times a day. i begin the day with a cup of warm water with a slice of lemon in it. This is followed by my juice an hour later. I use 2 apples and a slice of pineapple. To this I add a slice of lime, an inch of cucumber, a tablespoon of wheatgrass and spiralling. I juice everything together and just drink it up.

Let me tell you that it is very, very delicious and I just love it. Three hours later I do the same thing again though I can make some changes by adding celery sticks and carrot to give it a different taste.

In the afternoons, I add a leafy vegetable to my juice and take it to another level. It is just so much fun experimenting with the different food and the new taste I get.

Juicing is also a good way to clean u my refrigerator. Sometimes when I have too many carrots or cucumbers at home I just add the to the juice and use them up.

I strongly recommend juicing for everyone. You just don't feel hungry and your tummy can really rest and be cleansed. By the end of the third day I really feel different and so much lighter.

Drinking juice is really beneficial and since you are also doing it only once in a month, i think i can also try it out once

I wish I could do that too. Unfortunately that creates acids in my stomach and everything goes haywire. I have heard about this and I am happy for you that works with you.

I am glad you find it beneficial, but I don't see this type of diet being all that good since it deprives your body of necessary protein and fats along with the carbs.

I really think that I should take our bulky juicer out of the box and join in the fun! Will try to do this on my rest day :)

i herd that cleansing colon is drinking lemon juice, vegetable juice the whole day and no meat. Is it true?

Since it is just for a few day in a month, it gives the tummy a rest. If you worry about acidity, choose fruits that are less sour and make sure the pineapple is ripe.
