Food Therapy: Blue Print Cleanse...Not For Me.
Fine...you caught me. In a misguided attempt to lose weight, I will admit that I've tried Blue Print Cleanse. It's a juice detox system where you drink 6 bottles of raw fruit/veggies juice a day in lieu of eating.
It was...an interesting experience. I don't know how it's possible but I felt both energetic and light headed simultaneously. And I don't care what anyone else says, the juices do not fill you up! I was hungry all the time; maybe that accounted for my lightheadedness?
There are three levels of detox. Stupidly, I went for "Excavation" rather than "Renovation" or "Foundation". Excavation is the expert level of juicing...whatever that means. With Excavation, you get 4 green veggie juice bottles, 1 spicy lemonade bottle and 1 cashew milk bottle.
At first, the green veggie juice tasted disgusting but after two days, they weren't so bad. In fact, after my 3-day detox, I kinda craved veggie juice for a little while (a very little while). The spice lemonade was meh. But the cashew milk...oh my!
You are instructed to drink the cashew milk at the end of the day, and let me tell you, I thought about cashew milk ALL day long. It kinda tastes like almond milk (vanilla flavored) with some sesame powder? I'm not sure how to describe it but it's darn good.
So did I lose weight? I think I lost a pound. And yes, I did feel somewhat more energetic.
Was it worth it? I think not. I don't ever want to feel that constant low-level hunger again! I'll just stay on the treadmill/elliptical a little longer.
Plus, when you do Blue Print Cleanse, you need to be near a bathroom (ahem) constantly.
But I won't lie, after spending all that money and effort on a juice detox, I did try to eat healthier for a month afterwards.
