The world’s biggest juice cleanse

Tomorrow, over 100 people will start a juice cleanse for ten days. I’m so excited that we’re doing this together. Feel free to use my facebook, twitter or blog comments for chatting with one another and general support.

Some of your questions, answered

What do I drink?

Raw, organic, freshly juiced vegetables and fruit. I aim for 60% green vegetables (high on the celery), 30% non-sweet fruit (high on the cucumber) and 10% sweet fruit.

How much do I drink?

Aim for about 5 litres (about 5 quarts) of juice a day. Your size, activity level and metabolism will determine the exact amount you need. It may also vary over time.

Can I eat anything?

This isn’t a contest, it’s just for you to feel the benefits of supported juice cleansing. If you want to eat, too, then choose from the following if possible:

  • chlorella tablets
  • marine phytoplankton
  • non-sweet fruit
  • fresh smoothies

Can I drink anything else but juice?

Yes! As much fresh clean water and as many herbal teas as you want.

I’m working, how do I juice?

It does depend on the job you do, but you can juice enough to take in a flask to see you through. Juice that isn’t drank immediately can degrade, so consider adding a spoonful of ionic silver to it to prolong its life.

I’m pregnant or breastfeeding, can I do it?

I fasted for 7 days on water when I was pregnant (I didn’t know it at the time) and so I know it’s not dangerous, but the choice has to be yours. Consider green smoothies instead of juices, and adding chia mylks to your menu. If you don’t feel right, stop the cleanse immediately. We have about 5 pregnant or breastfeeding mums on board, all doing a variation of the full juice cleanse to suit their needs.

What else should I do?

  • You may feel cold while cleansing. Keep extra layers of clothes handy, and enjoy blankets and hot water bottles if you need them.
  • Feel free to do a castor oil pack on your liver.
  • You may want to take MSM and liquid zeolites to assist your cleanse.
  • Have plenty of hot baths with salt, magnesium or epsom salts in.
  • Go to bed early. Give thanks. Meditate. Love. This cleanse is a prayer in action.
  • Exercise gently: walking, yoga, small weights and pilates.
  • I personally will keep taking the supplements I take daily, vegan DHA and reishi extract being two of them.

That’s it?

Yes, that’s it. It’s simple. Juice as often as you like and as much as you like. If you feel hungry or weird, juice more. I’m really looking forward to doing this with you all, and am so glad we’re here to support each other.

    Does anyone have any tips on washing a juicer? I have a centrifugal type. I find it so monotonous having to wash the basket out when juicing more than once a day! Would it be okay to not wash the basket in between juices- and just wash it out thoroughly at the end of the day?

  • Amazing, it’s inspiring me to do one too. Whatever you do avoid doing an all citrus juice fast, it’s too powerful. Anyways, great post, check out my blog also

    Besides trying to get my new house in order, I want to do this in a couple of weeks once I can find everything….including the local farmers markets in my new area! Too many boxes and stuff to go through even though I want to do it when everyone else is!

  • I would very much have have appreciated it if there would have been either a variety of recipes listed in your blog, or a link to where there would be some!

    Hi everyone I am just looking at all the comments now and would love to join you all. I have a juicer “Greenstar” never used as noet sure of my 1st step! Paid so much for it almost scared of damaging it. Have been sittingh on the fence for so long not sure why? Health has to be the most important aspect of life without this you cant really live or enjoy living. So 13th Jan 2010 marks my 1st step onto the path to health. Love Cath x
