Hi Beth, here’s my post which will tell you and link you to all you need to know about cleansing! I also suggest this post which answers reader concerns.
The biggest thing you need to know is NOT to freak out when you feel hungry. Just drink more juice and you’ll find it’s more filling than you expect.
Start easting vegetarian two days before the cleanse. Schedule a colonic for day 3 (Libbe or gravity machines are the best). After the cleanse, try to eat raw and vegan for the first day, and then vegetarian for two days afterwards. And stay away from processed sugars!
BluePrintCleanse is generally the best for new cleansers. If you’re in NYC, I also love Organic Avenue because it’s a lot more hearty. Those in LA have the pleasure of the RedCarpetCleanse which has the best juices in my opinion. Read here for more on each. Recently, local cleanses are popping up. In Atlanta, you can try Arden’s Garden, which is amazingly cheap for the good quality of the juice. Houstonians can try Snap Kitchen, but I don’t like their juice line up (too much fruit, not enough veg.)
Let me know if you have any more questions!
