Juice cleanses are not a one-size-fits-all thing.
If you’re a gym junkie, a juice-only cleanse is probably not the right choice for you. A common experience when trying to exercise on a juice cleanse is feeling weak, lightheaded, faint, too hungry, etc…. and if you’re a fitness addict, the thought of taking three or more full days off from your regular routine is probably off-putting.
Our Protein Cleanse was designed with you fitness fiends in mind. Most people find themselves unable to do more than a light, gentle workout like yoga or brisk walking on our juice-only Skinny Cleanse. That’s why each day of the Protein Cleanse gives you 3 cold-pressed juices and 3 Superfood plant-based protein smoothies that provide your body with what it needs to stay energized. You can maintain your regular workout routine while you reboot and detoxify your body.
Plant-based proteins actually stabilize your energy levels throughout the day and can help you to stay fuller longer than animal protein sources. Now, I’m not here to talk you out of eating meat, but what are some of the benefits of getting your protein from plants instead of animal protein sources for 3 or more days while also flooding your system with raw cold-pressed juice?
- Reduced bloating
- Decreased recovery time post-workout
- Increased energy
- Reduced inflammation
- Build lean muscle more efficiently
- More restful sleep
- Improved mood
- Clearer skin
Plant-based protein is easier for your digestive system to break down and make use of than animal protein sources. Meat, cheese, and eggs are all acidifying to the body and promote inflammation. Chronic inflammation is directly correlated with the inability to lose weight!
The key to getting enough protein on a plant-based diet, whether it’s in the short term like a 3 day cleanse, or in the long term like going vegan, is DIVERSITY. Leafy greens, hemp seeds, and raw nuts are all excellent clean protein sources!
The variety of raw cold-pressed juices and Superfood protein smoothies in the Protein Cleanse provides your body exactly what it needs to burn excess fat fast, reveal more muscle definition, and skyrocket your energy so you can amp up your workouts!
