Pre-Wedding Juice Cleanse. Step by Step Guide
There are a significant number of benefits concerning pre-wedding juice cleansing. Mental clarity, reduced food cravings, increased energy—you name it! You can boost the benefits of your juice cleanse by devoting a few days to good preparation.
Aside from looking stunning on your big day, you also need to look healthy. We recommend pre-cleansing for 2-7 days based on your current lifestyle and eating habits. To make it easier for you, we’ve conducted several categories below. Your job is to choose the one that best describes your lifestyle and follow the suggestions for the proper length of time for your pre-wedding juice cleanse.
- Health Food Experts: If you’re a health aficionado who’s off his/her “usual” track and wants to start over with healthy eating, 1-2 days is more than enough for you to get back on track.
- Weekend Warriors: You eat balanced most days and indulge a little on the weekends, but now you want to make healthy choices consistently. If this is you, consider spending 3-4 days in your pre-wedding juice cleanse phase to rid your system of remnants of too much alcohol, caffeine, or processed foods.
- Victims of the Blues: Maybe too much to do in so little time leaves you eating sad—consisting of pre-packaged or processed food—regularly, which means you’re not getting enough fresh, plant-based foods. If you want to avoid the possible detox symptoms and gain a proper reset, we suggest committing to 5 days of a pre-wedding juice cleanse diet.
- Junk Food Junkies: Indulging in sugary sweets, sodas, and fast food regularly is not healthy. If you want to let your digestive system, metabolism, energy levels, and attitude experience a hard reset, we recommend opting to a 7-day pre-wedding juice cleanse diet. This will help to reduce unpleasant detox symptoms and allow you to live healthily.
With all that said, let’s show you a step-by-step guide on how to perform an appropriate pre-wedding juice cleanse diet.
Step 1: Pre-Cleanse
Holding to a light, healthy diet starting three days prior to your cleanse will ease the cravings during the phase itself. Eat organic fresh vegetables, fruits, eggs, and whole grains. Also, drink eight glasses of water every day as it will help to clean your blood. But if you weigh more or exercise a lot, consider drinking more water. To gain better results, avoid sugar, caffeine, alcohol, processed foods, gluten, dairy, and red meat altogether.
For the best juice cleanse experience, ensure you have enough time to reflect and take some rest. Don’t do pre-wedding juice cleanses during one of your emotional phases or a significant life transition. Prepare yourself for ultimate success: ask your loved ones to support you and encourage them to join you as well. Share this post with them for further information and inspiration.
Be committed and set a proper intention for your cleanse. Figure out what you want to heal (e.g., thought patterns, illness, relationships, etc.), what you want to create via cleansing, and whether or not it will be a success. Ask yourself these questions and write down the answers. This will reveal the true intention for your pre-wedding juice cleanse.
Step 2: During the Juice Cleanse
We highly recommend a 100% pre-wedding juice cleanse as eating slows down your cleansing process. But you have to eat something, so consider eating certified organic vegetables and fruits, alongside soaked seeds and nuts during your cleanse.
Try limiting yourself to light workout (e.g., yoga, walks, stretching, etc.). Remember, as you’re on a pre-wedding juice cleanse, your energy levels are likely to change. Therefore, you must consider what your body requires before intense exercising.
We recommend performing introspective tasks while cleansing (e.g., meditation, listening to soft music, writing a book, walks in nature, and so on). Consider avoiding places with extremely loud noises and tons of activities; you could be more sensitive than your usual days during the cleanse. Also, make sure to spend enough time to look after your own health.
Step 3. After the Juice Cleanse
You need to return to consuming solid foods after the cleanse gradually. During the first 3-4 days after finishing your pre-wedding juice cleanse diet, follow a similar diet to this one. You can eat green vegetables and organic fruits on the first day after the cleanse. Then on the next morning, you can add eggs, yogurt, and brown rice to your list. Finally, add fish, meat, or chicken to your diet, starting 5-6 days after the cleanse. Utilize this cleansing experience to develop healthy eating habits.
Try not to jump into anything exhausting or strenuous right after your pre-wedding juice cleanse. Take as much as you need to relax and implement the experience back into your lifestyle.
Juicing is a great way to boost your intake of beneficial minerals, vitamins, and phytonutrients. It breaks your cravings for sugary treats and rids you of the swings they cause in blood-sugar levels.
Pre-wedding juice cleanse also helps to reset your dietary habits. Just make sure to follow the steps mentioned above, and you’ll be good to go!
