The Advanced Cleanse is recommended if you’re an experienced juicer or someone passionate about healthy eating. This vegetable-heavy cleanse is the least caloric. The Advanced provides a vacation for your overworked body as energy is directed away from digestion and toward areas that need healing.
Making minor adjustments to your food intake two days before beginning your cleanse will give you the most benefits. Start by eliminating processed foods, refined starches, alcohol, nicotine, refined sugar and coffee.
So, what can you eat? Have your fill of fruits, vegetables, lean proteins, plant-based proteins and low-fat dairy. Also, stay hydrated by drinking plenty of water. These initial changes will help you meet your goals for a healthier you!
PRO TIP: Start your morning with herbal tea and aim for at least eight glasses of water per day. Don’t be afraid to pick and choose what works for you. Everyone’s body is different!
You are prepped and ready to do this thing! Keep your motivation for this physical and mental restart at the front of your mind as you kick this cleanse into gear.
Enjoy your juices in order from #1-6, two hours apart if possible.
Continue to drink at least eight glasses of water per day.
Ease up on your physical activity if you have less energy than usual. A light jog, Pilates or practicing yoga are all good options.
Rest. This time is about making you healthier in mind and body. If you need an excuse for a massage, this is it!
PRO TIP: If you start to feel overwhelmed, uncomfortable or hungry, supplement your cleanse routine with herbal teas and water with lemon. If this doesn’t cut it, consider adding another juice, drinking vegetable broth or eating raw fruits and/or veggies. Just remember your intentions with this cleanse and make healthy choices. You’ve totally got this!
You did it! Congrats! Now you can slowly start to incorporate solids back into your routine. Aim for smaller portions and meals comprised of fruits, vegetables, soups, salads, whole grains and lean proteins. Keep on the healthier track you worked so hard to create!
PRO TIP: Keep your fridge, pantry and belly full of all the good stuff. Then there will be less temptation to add in what you worked so hard to cut out.
Almost anyone can! With busy lives and the daily struggle for “me” time, personal health can quickly become the last priority. Cleanses are a perfect refresh button for your wellbeing.
We do not recommend our cleanses to children under 18, those who are pregnant/breastfeeding or those who suffer from certain medical conditions. Please consult your professional healthcare provider with specific questions or concerns before starting.
Here are a some of the awesome, potential results from doing a cleanse:
Cleanses can be a launchpad for improved everyday life. While on the cleanse, you’ll have time to clear out the unwanted and less nutritious foods in your kitchen while thinking about how and what you should eat.
If you are struggling to come up with these changes on your own, consider consulting with a registered dietitian.
Yes, this is true. Every day your body works hard to detoxify in order to function well. Bodies work best when provided with unprocessed, whole foods. So, when that doesn’t happen and you consume processed foods with chemicals, lots of sugar, caffeine and alcohol, a cleanse gives your body a break. Cleansing also gives your mind a breather from making food decisions, allowing more space to kick-start your new way of life.
The juices are conveniently numbered (#1-6) to guide you, starting with the lightest drink and continuing to the heaviest throughout the day.
Your protein will come from our cashew milk drinks.
During the cleanse, you will get a small amount of fiber through the juices. After the cleanse is over, get back to your regular fiber intake.
Everyone is different, but many people say they feel great! If your body is used to being fed processed and fatty foods, you should feel lighter and more energized as you are filled with natural, wholesome nutrients. Our cleanses provide 1000-1200 calories to keep your body functioning at a desired level.
Most importantly, listen to your body! We recommend you stick to drinking the six bottles in the Zest Cleanse each day. Also, take in as much water as you can to help your system flush out toxins.
However, if you feel the need to add extra drinks to your cleanse, it’s ok! Just make sure the beverages you add are healthy. Stay away from carbonated drinks, especially soda.
Feel free to order extra juice as a supplement. You could also add herbal tea or fruits and/or veggies if needed. If at any point your body isn’t agreeing with the cleanse, we recommend discontinuing it. Switch back to a regular food routine and drink our juices as desired.
Absolutely! Just remember that your energy level might not be as high as usual. So, we don’t suggest extremely strenuous activity. Listen to your body and don’t push your limit. You’re already doing your body a huge favor by cleansing!
Since everyone’s body is different, you may or may not experience weight loss. The real benefits of cleansing happen once you are done, motivated and prepared to eat cleaner. If you desire weight loss, the cleanse should be viewed as a jump-start.
This is completely up to you! You can cleanse anywhere from annually to every few months. Keep in mind that a cleanse is not intended to be done for an indefinite amount of time but rather as a quick reset for your mind and body.
Whether you choose to cleanse or not, adding Zest Juices to your regular routine is a great way to improve your overall health. Integrating our fresh, cold-pressed juices into your routine will provide your body with a boost of nutrients one juice at a time!
This is entirely up to you and what you want to get out of the experience. Cleansing for one to five days is the general rule. We haven’t found it necessary to continue the routine past five days. Make sure you plan your cleanse for when you can make your body and health your top priority. If it is your first time cleansing or you want to do something more moderate, choose a one-to-three-day cleanse. You can always add more days once you start!
