How to prepare for a juice cleanse
Before the juice cleanse you should prepare your body a few days in advance. You wonder why and how? We will tell you everything about it in this blogpost.
Juice cleanse preparation is essential
A juice cleanse is a new and unusual experience for your body. Drinking only juices instead of eating solid food is something your body has to adjust to, since its daily task is to digest the food you eat. Therefore, we recommend to prepare your body 2-3 days before starting the juice cleanse.
Our body gets used to ingredients such as caffeine and nicotine quite fast, which is why so many of us depend on the daily morning cup of coffee to wake up. During the juice cleanse you should avoid eating solid food as well as caffeine, nicotine and alcohol. Instead, you only drink our juices and 2-3 liters of water and caffeine-free tea.

- Avoid high-fat and heavy foods
Try to avoid these kinds of food, e.g. pizza and fries, because they remain a long time in your digestive tract until they are fully digested.
- Reduce simple carbohydrates
They are found in highly processed foods that are pretty low in fibre. Simple carbohydrates are responsible for peaks of your blood-sugar level and for your cravings (e.g. white flour products, sweets).
