Urban Remedy Juice Detox
When I told my friends I was planning on living on nothing but juice and soup for three days, I got more than a few skeptically raised eyebrows. "Just juice?!" they cried. "And soup" I added. But they still didn't seem convinced by my attempts at a detox.
Enter Urban Remedy, a juice detox program designed by nutritionists to be balanced, delicious and filling. The program, which you can tailor to suit the level of detox you are looking for, isn't designed to be a diet, it's designed to give your body a break from sugars, processed foods and caffeine. And, let's face it, whose liver couldn't do with a bit of a break?
You'll have the option of selecting a 1, 3 or 5 day cleanse, with special packages for brides and a winter option that includes soups rather than all juice. The cleanse is delivered straight to your door, consisting of 4 juices and 2 soups, complete with a bunch of straws and a cooler bag for toting your juices to work. The 'meals' are filling, taste pretty good and one of the best parts is not having to decide what to cook for dinner every night!
If you want to get the most out of your detox, it's best to cut back on the coffee and chocolate in the week leading up, otherwise you'll be hit with headaches, nausea and other delightful symptoms. It's also a great excuse to get a facial and a massage, to help your body get rid of those last few remaining toxins. Stick it out, and you'll feel lighter, have clearer skin and feel generally more alive.
My body is a temple. Now to resist that block of chocolate.
