Let me just say I am thoroughly impressed with all of you. I am so excited at the amount of you that are motivated to participate in the challenge. Because the cleanse starts tomorrow, it would literally be impossible for me to answer all your e-mails/questions/comments in one day. Due to the overwhelming interest in the challenge, I am going to try to answer all your questions below. If you have more questions regarding the cleanse, please put them in the comment box below & I’ll address them before tomorrow.
P.S. Your support is what drives this blog- you all keep me constantly inspired!
+ Can I workout while on the 3-day cleanse?
Yes, I recommend working out each day. However stay away from hot yoga- since you won’t be consuming your regular calorie intake, hot yoga could make you feel faint.
+ I am not near a juice place, what do I do?
Bring your ingredient list to Whole Foods the night before & check to make sure they can have the juice jug prepared for you tomorrow AM. You also have the option of making the concoction at home on your own [ with a blender or juicer ]. Be advised: it gets rather messy at home. Give yourself time to prepare the juices if you’re making the mixture in your kitchen.
+ If I am blending from home, can I include pulp?
Yes, it contains lots of nutrients!
+ Will I be hungry?
I was fine the first day, slightly hungry towards the end of the second day, & fully energized the third day. Bottomline: you’ll live.
+ Can I drink green tea or any tea with sweetener?
No. You’re fine to drink any tea, but absolutely no sweeteners. Sorry!
+ Tea recommendations?
First of all, you should be chugging water throughout the whole cleanse. I love going to Starbucks and getting the Trenta iced green tea, with no sweetener and a splash of passion fruit tea to keep me feeling hydrated.
+ Can I drink alcohol or coffee?
No. I know, no coffee? Life’s is tough. You’ll live.
+ Since I am fasting tomorrow, can I eat like a pig tonight?
No [ !!! ]. Eat clean today, keep your alcohol intake down, & prepare your body.
+ Will I be famished Saturday morning?
No, you’ll crave healthy foods and lots of water. You will also feel lighter. Don’t go stuffing your face- remember the work you put in & make smart choices.
+ I can’t find the instructions.
E-mail me for instructions at Lauryn@TheSkinnyConfidential.com.
+ I emailed you for instructions and have not heard back?
I’ll email you by 3 PM [ Pacific time ] today!
++ If you have any allergies or conditions, please consult a doctor before trying this cleanse!
