Blueprint Cleanse

a nutritional juice cleanse

A cleanse for people who like to scream, "Help!"

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!

Yeah, you had migraines from the lack of caffeine. The cleanse is not all that bad at all. I'm on day 2 right now ,and I feel great. The green juice isn't anything to rave about but, it's not at all bad. I'm not hungry at all ,and I have energy. I went to the gym twice yesterday ,and I'm going tonight right after work. The lemonade juice is great as well as the cashew nut. I'd recommend this cleanse for anyone that has a fairly healthy diet but, had a rough vacation or weekend. :)

Oy, this diet doesn't sound fun! You're probably better off making a habit out of eating healthy and in moderation :)

Yikes, this sounds terrible. The most extreme food plan I've ever been on was the raw food diet. That made me less alert, and I found myself bumping into walls and furniture. I don't think I'd last as long as you did on this!

Blueprint Cleanse
I love these juices the way some people love drugs. Most likely because it makes me feel like I'm high on crack - or what I might imagine being high on crack is like, which I'm fairly certain I can speak to, since I've had Dunkin Donuts coffee on an empty stomach. I prefer the three day package, although I've also done one-day, two-day, and five-days. I find that on the third day of the cleanse, I become super articulate, clearer thinking, and overflowing with a strange, unmitigated (unmitigatable!!) …

I needed a change of pace from all the holiday indulgence of December '08, so I did a 2-day Blueprint Cleanse.     The Blueprint cleanse is a nutritional juice cleanse that has been quite popular in NYC for the past year or so. It's less intense than the traditional cleanses (like the master cleanse..I still have nightmares about cayenne pepper), so it's a nice choice for someone like me who doesn't like to be hungry, lightheaded, or have my daily routine severely disrupted but …

my first cleanse, but i liked it. Only did 2 days, but it felt good. I need to try it again for a bit longer.

Blueprint Cleanse is a nutritional liquid cleanse that helps the body detoxify itself. Due to pollutants in the air and chemicals in the foods we consume, our body accumulates toxins. Blueprint is a way to rid your body of these toxins when you start to feel unwell. Blueprint Cleanse supplies the blood with vitamins, minerals and enzymes that one is able to assimilate. The process is also recommended for many illnesses, as it gives the body the opportunity to rest, recover and heal.

The Juice used in Blueprint Cleanse is 100% fresh and unpasteurized. The cleanse involves drinking 6 bottles of juice per day, for a 2, 3, 4 or 5-day period. The juice is accompanied by ice packs, in an insulated cooler bag when delivered and must be immediately stored in the refrigerator.
