The best way to summarize how I felt on a juice cleanse would be...
Of course, the first day was easy. I put down 5 bottles of green juice with ease and wondered why everyone hasn’t tried this diet before. After a sound and restful night’s sleep, I woke up on day 2 a monster. Hangry has never looked so terrifying. At any moment I could have transformed into Godzilla and eaten everything in the entire house. Every fast food sign, smell, and sight of food made me more and more mentally unstable. I know the way I snapped at you for asking me if the dishwasher was clean or dirty wasn’t right of me. But just know I couldn’t help it.
Just when I thought things couldn’t get worse, I woke up to the third day of my juice cleanse. I opened my fridge and death stared the last pack of juices like they had just kicked my dog. It felt like my body was crying as I started to sip the first. The sadness had set in. When you walked in the house with a BigMac and Large fry for dinner and my eyes filled up with tears, I knew I had hit rock bottom.
Generally, we recommend Whole30 as a healthy non-fast diet to try.
