DO

Set real­is­tic goals If it’s your first time, try it for three days in­stead of a week. Also, know why you’re do­ing it. Juic­ing helps clean up your eat­ing habits and elim­i­nates tox­ins, mak­ing you feel lighter and more en­er­getic. But let’s be very clear: it isn’t a mir­a­cle weight-loss so­lu­tion.

DO

Ease in and out of it For a cou­ple of days be­fore, eat health­ier, smaller meals. Stick to fresh fruits and sal­ads with eggs and grilled fish so your body can adapt to the juice diet. Do the same af­ter to avoid overwhelming your di­ges­tive sys­tem.

DON’T

For­get your wa­ter in­take When you’re al­ready drink­ing so much juice, you might for­get wa­ter. Drink more to flush out tox­ins and curb hunger pangs.

DON’T

Cut out food com­pletely You don’t want to be mis­er­able or send your body into shock. The key is to eat very light and clean – plenty of raw greens and or­ganic fruits. They’ll also make up for the fi­bre that is not present in the juice.
