The Trick: Wean off of all starches, sugars, caffeine and alcohol at least a week before you start the cleanse. Trust, you will feel so much better. And don't eat a big meal the night before you start.
My opinion: I was really excited about this cleanse when I saw it in Allure magazine. I did the Foundation Cleanse with my mom and aunt (not only do you get a discount for group orders, but you need the support). However, it wasn't as enjoyable or as easy as I thought it would be and it certainly didn't make me feel energized or refreshed.
First, the green juice is fairly disgusting. Made of spinach, kale, pepper, lemon and other ingredients, it has a strong smell, a bitter taste and just doesn't sit well in the tummy. This wouldn't be a big deal, except you need to drink at least three a day. The other juices are manageable, after six drinks I was extremely full. I swear, the only way to consume the green juice is to chug it and have a glass of water ready when you're done.
Second, it must do something, because it made me feel awful. The first night I was nauseous and had a splitting migraine. Perhaps I'm toxin-filled, or maybe my body wasn't used to so much juice, but it wasn't a good feeling. Day two and three were better, but I also skipped the last green juice.
The Verdict: I would not do it again. My mom and aunt still can't even look at anything green!
