Typical solid foods and everything that isn’t good for you! This includes coffee, regular tea, dishes high in sodium, highly processed foods, unhealthy snacks, foods with lots of sugar and fat, and so on.
You should also avoid cigarettes and alcohol when detoxing.
When you avoid unhealthy foods and drink nutritious juices instead, the waste will be flushed from body. The cells in your body will repair and revitalise themselves. Though individual results may vary, some of the most common benefits include:
- Weight Loss
- Increased energy
- Relief from belatedness and water retention
- Improved digestion and relief from constipation
- Naturally glowing skin
- Increased attentiveness
- Relief from headaches
It’s up to you. You’ll reap more benefits with a longer detox, but it’s not for everyone. If you have never detoxed before, we recommend that you start with 3 days and work your way up. If you’ve done a #joobdetox before, we recommend going with a 5-day detox.
Definitely! A 1-day detox is a great way to strengthen your immune system by giving your body a rest from your regular food intake.
A good rule of thumb is whenever you experience any of the following: fatigue/general lack of energy, sleeplessness, anxiety/depression, digestive problems, at the first sign of a cold and of course, before and after holidays or any special events that lead to overindulging.
We advise against it as the nutrients in the juices may not be enough or suitable for you during your pregnancy. Please consult your physician before starting any kind of detox!
In order to achieve the benefits of a cleanse, it is important to stick to the juice alone!
In the few days leading up to the detox, start eating right! Refer to the Joob detox guide for more information on the food/beverages to consume. You should eat light and healthy, focusing on fruits, vegetables, healthy nuts and whole grains. You should also avoid coffee, alcohol, processed food, animal and diary products, sugar, and unhealthy oils.
