The Two Day Reset
A digestive tract transition time in adults is anywhere between 18 and 48 hours, averaging at 36 hours in a healthy individual. 48 hour juice cleanses give the tract enough time to flush out more toxins. Extending one day cleanse to two days can be especially beneficial for those experiencing more severe bloating, which tends to go away by day two. This might be a good indicator for certain food intolerances from foods you usually consume.
We’ve bundled our best tips & tricks to help you unlock the full potential of your next cleanse. Whether you've just walked into the detox world, have dabbled with a juice or two, or can add cleansing to the skill set on your cv, here’s everything - and we mean everything - you need to know.
Juice prep is a thing. A really important thing if you ask anyone at the CPRESS HQ. In the build-up to your cleanse, switch to organic produce and say goodbye (or at least ‘see you later’) to sugar, coffee, alcohol, and processed foods. Maximize the benefits from your cleanse by embracing a healthy and plant-based diet instead. Warning: we’re about to sound like a broken record but please drink lots of water before, during, and after your cleanse.
Introductions for Your Cleanse
Treat your first juice as a new ritual to start your day. And if you follow a morning mindfulness routine, keep going, don’t let us get in your way. Follow the first juice with another every 2 to 3 hours and drink your last juice no later than 3 hours before going to sleep.
Should I drink water during my cleanse?
YES. Water and herbal teas are your best friends during a cleanse. This hydration duo supports the cleansing process, clears your mind, and gives your body energy.
Is it ok to drink coffee?
Yes and no. We generally don’t recommend caffeine during your cleanse, but one cup a day won’t do you any harm. Especially for first-timers, who might find it more challenging, we’re willing to bend the rules - just a little. Just promise us to leave out any dairy or sugar.
Can I drink alcohol?
Sorry for being the bearer of bad news but alcohol - even if it comes with a festive umbrella - has got to go.
Can I eat if I am hungry?
What they forgot to teach us in school (at least in ours) is that your body sometimes sends a hunger signal when in reality, you might just be thirsty. So when you experience cravings, drink some water or herbal teas first. If that doesn’t do the trick, pause on the hunger, draw attention to it, and breathe. Try some pranayama exercises to help reduce your appetite. You will feel and see the best benefits if you avoid food during your cleanse. However, if you are still peckish then try a small portion of higher-calorie fruit juices, smoothies, or soups. If you do surrender to the pangs of hunger, don't worry, it happens to the best of us. Just remember whatever you eat comes from the earth or grows from a tree. We recommend organic and plant-based food only.
What if I am not feeling well
Temporarily changing your diet from solid to liquid reboots many of the body's important functions, especially your digestion. So don’t worry, it’s normal to feel a little lighter. For some, it can be a shock to the system, and tangible benefits may take a few days. If your body is ready for the challenge, that’s great. Feeling dizzy or lightheaded? We recommend pausing the cleanse, and trying another day.
How do I end the cleanse?
The end of your cleanse deserves as much of your attention as the initial lift-off. Start by slowly introducing organic and plant-based foods into your daily meals. If in doubt, stick to these easy rules: opt for smaller portions, avoid (whenever you can) processed sugars, too much alcohol, fried and processed foods.
The 48h cleanse is amazing. The juices are tasty and I didn't really feel hungry throughout.
I feel so much better and healthier after having my 48hr Reset juices. It is perfect for beginners like myself. Thank you!
The 48 hour reset is the best. Very tasty, easy to do - perfect for beginners. I did 2x the 48 hours as I’m still a newbie and can’t quite handle the green cleanse yet, but I'm working up to it.
Great juice cleanse, never felt hunger and all very tasty. Will be doing more in the month of August.
Delicious juices. I honestly did not feel hungry during this 48 hour reset. The benefits included: 1kg weigh loss, improvement in my energy levels and the kickstart I needed to get myself geared up for a healthy week ahead. Highly recommend!
