Will I be hungry?
It’s completely understandable to be nervous and to feel a little daunted, if this is your first juice cleanse… the most common angst is that you will feel hungry, or should I say starving! However, I have yet to meet anyone who actually feels hungry during a natural juice cleanse, more often than not they are completely surprised by how full and well-nourished they actually feel!
I am not going to say that you may not feel some false hunger and maybe some cravings over the first 24-48 hours – this is completely normal. You may also feel a little discomfort as the body starts to detox – most commonly, you may experience a headache and some minor aches in the joints. But that said, many people start a juice cleanse and experience no side effects at all. The key is to drink plenty of water and rest as required.
If you are really struggling I will work with you and offer some SOS options.
I am quite sure that any nerves will be more than outweighed by the renewed energy you will start to feel (within a very rapid space of time), and when your body really starts to feel well-nourished and revitalised from the inside out: clearer skin and eyes, clearer thinking and a change in positivity are just some of the wonderful side effects. Furthermore, if you are looking to kick-start a new healthy way of life and to lose a little weight, there really is no safer and healthier way than with a natural juice cleanse.
