Yeah, I used to have at least 1 a day just because I like it, but I've never done a full juice cleanse.
I love juice cleanses! I use them sometimes to reset myself -- especially after I go on a run of bad eating and I fall into a habit of eating/drinking mindlessly. I definitely believe that our bodies can adequately "detoxify" themselves, but juice cleanses force me to look beyond the instant gratification of (usually unhealthy) food. Eventually, after the initial pains and cravings, it can be really peaceful. I dunno.. I grew up Catholic, so this psychology of denial and reward is very familiar and intuitive for me
You lose a lot of water, so make sure you have access to a bathroom! Also, if you feel faint at all during the day, I would recommend taking a few sips of the cashew drink (which is usually the last of the bunch). Day 1 is tough, but Day 2 is much, much easier. What's great is that on Day 3, you'll probably be craving brown rice and greens. Good luck!!
