We’re all human. It's not necessarily realistic to eat perfectly and abstain from drinking 100% of the time- especially during the holidays.
...That doesn’t mean you can’t party healthier! So how can our Skinny Cleanse juices help you to have fun AND still feel good the next day? Here are 3 ways!
1. Craft Your Own Healthier Cocktails
Why make your cocktails with fresh fruit and vegetable juice? You’ll save yourself the empty calories of traditional sugary mixers and defend your body against next-day regrets! Free of processed sugars, highly hydrating, and packed with replenishing electrolytes, raw cold-pressed juices are the ultimate defense against hangover.
2. Shut Down Alcohol-Induced Junk Cravings
Ever notice how boozing and junk food tend to go hand in hand?
Not only does cold-pressed juice arm your body against hangovers, it also fights off those regretable post-party junk food binges.
So why does alcohol trigger junk cravings? When you drink alcohol, it increases the body's production of a neuropeptide that makes you crave fatty, calorie-laden foods (neuropeptides = molecules that influence the body and brain). On top of that, overindulging in alcohol depletes the body of vital nutrients. A malnourished body yearns for foods that are energy dense... and fatty foods are the most energy dense!
Raw juices instantly supply your body with nutrients that alcohol depletes. When your body’s nutritional needs are satisfied, your cravings for fatty junk foods are vanquished. Whether you drink a green juice before the party or you sip on your own cold-pressed juice cocktail creation, you'll naturally have more self-control to resist gluttonous temptation.
3. Restore Balance to Your Body = Feel Better Fast!
Alcohol is highly acidifying to the body. When there is an excess of acidity present, the body protects itself by trapping that toxicity in its fatty tissues, (potentially even growing more fat cells- ugh!). That's when you find yourself unable to shake that run-down feeling and start gaining unwanted weight.
On the other hand, fresh juice is highly alkalizing and helps to quickly restore balance to the body’s pH. When your body's pH is balanced, you feel energized, have fewer unhealthy food cravings, you let go of unwanted weight more easily, and you have an easier time bouncing back from a night of imbibing!
