Good morning! I did it! I finished the three day Skinny Limits juice cleanse.
It was hard, but I feel really good. And surprisingly, after not eating for three days, I don’t crave a big meal or lots of food. I just really want fresh fruit.
After a juice cleanse, it’s recommended that you eat clean and whole foods the next day. Such as fruits, vegetables, almonds, salad, salmon, etc. Skinny Limits recommends that you eat fruit for breakfast followed by some raw nuts.
Since I was craving fruit, that’s exactly what I had.
I also had a 100 calorie pack of almonds. It was amazingly delicious.
And coffee. Oh, how I’ve missed coffee.
I went to the grocery store last night to stock up on some fresh produce.
I don’t usually buy so much pre-cut produce, but I was tired last night and the grocery store was the last place that I wanted to be.
I am excited to eat cherries for the first time this season!
I didn’t weight myself at home before I started the juice cleanse, but I did get weighed at the doctor’s office about a week before so I know my approximate weight. I weighed myself this morning and I probably lost about 6 or 7 pounds.
Here are some pros and cons based on my experience with the three day Skinny Limits juice cleanse.
- Great way to rid the body of toxins and “reset” your body
- I felt “lighter” and not bloated
- Weight loss
- I didn’t feel extremely hungry after the first day
- Decreased sugar cravings
- Ability to pick number of days for the juice cleanse (1-10 days) and different cleanses to choose from (standard, green, master, variety, etc.)
I also want to add that I really like the Skinny Limits company. Besides the juices tasting good (with the exception of the beet juice), they were great to work with. All my emails were answered quickly, and I even asked a question via Facebook and got a quick response.
They were great about working with me on ship date. I had to change a couple of times dues to the 5k I was running. The juices were shipped quickly, arrived on time, and were packaged in ice packs. They also have tons of information on their website if you have questions about doing a juice cleanse.
Skinny Limits is based out of Austin, TX, but they ship worldwide.
- The side effects – everyone will experience different side effects. Mine were unpleasant but not unbearable.
- Constant headache (My aunt pointed out that the headache and fatigue might be because I stopped drinking caffeine (coffee) cold turkey
- Feeling tired and slightly out of it (if I had to give a business presentation, take a test, or fly an airplane, I would have failed).
- No running
- The cost
Doing a juice cleanse isn’t cheap. I recommend finding one that’s local so you don’t have to pay for shipping. A one day Skinny Limits juice cleanse is $49 (without shipping). A three day juice cleanse is $147 (without shipping). So, it’s expensive, but if it’s worth it to you then go for it.
Overall, I thought the three day Skinny Limits juice cleanse was positive. It made me feel better, lighter, and helped with my sugar cravings. It was very tough to do. I managed to stick to the three days drinking only the juice, water, and green tea. I didn’t even eat one little piece of celery, but it was very hard.
Besides the benefits of the juice cleanse, it also showed me that I have the willpower and determination to stick to doing something difficult.
Well, I’m off to the gym. Have a great day!
